Narrator did a FANTASTIC job with the voices. Author revealed villann in an unexpectant way. Wish the villan would have been revealed in a different way (maybe the main character discovering the villan). The woman the main character hooks up with is over the top essentric (a little too much) and a little unrealistic. Overall, the book was a great mystery / thriller.
The performance was enjoyable on this one. The "who done it" "clue" nature of thecstory was unexpected, but nice since that is what kept me interested . i was expecting a little more loving and a lot more sex, but after about chapter 10 became intertwined with finding out the truth. The ending felt a little lazy, but after so much character development I was okay with thatvtoo. overall pretty good read .
A very good read/listen. I've listened to the audiobook several times and keep enjoying it. Like the twist at the end. Always look forward to a Nora Roberts book
The family story was intriguing.
No, the females voices were terrible. Just couldn't connect to it.
This was the second time I listened to this book, as the book was retooled with another reader. If this was supposed to be better, then they missed the mark. I much prefer the first rendition!
This story had me at the beach setting and kept me with its delightful main characters.
The reader excellently portrayed local accents, moods and humor. He made me feel like I was there.
I'll recommend this title to all of my reading friends. (With a warning about bedroom nuances )
I loved this. it was a great story and the narrator brought it to life. It was very easy to tell which character was speaking. Recommended
