This is by far the best Romantic Suspense I have listened to in a long time! Not since Linda Howard's MacKenzies or Elizabeth Lowell's Donavan series have I enjoyed a book so much! Love, love, love the new series. Hope that Audible gets more of this series....
This is a spin off, very loosely, from her Bullet Catcher series. And let me tell you, I was heart broken when she said she was done w/ that series!!
If you haven't read Roxanne St. Claire, that woman can WRITE, and she can write anything...from edge of your seat, Mission Impossible adventure to emotional scenes that will wrench your gut...and I was like OH NOES...but she doesn't dissapoint one bit picking up w/ this new series. I'd actually read the books, but when they first came out, but it was a true pleasure listening to Edgo of Sight...the narrator, Violet Gray, truly brought these amazing characters to life. To me, a good book rolls like like watching a movie in my head ~ listening to a GREAT book IS watching a movie in my head. I can't think of a better way to explain to you. I never thought I'd be a fan of audio books, but I'm here to tell if you have a great narrator, they ROCK!!
Quick run down on the story ~ Samantha Fairchild witnesses a high profile murder while working, and is scared for her life. Because of past bad blood, she's afraid the police aren't really interested in looking out for her best interests...and she's not sure where to turn next. So she texts an friend who also happens to be an investigative journalist who she's lost touch with ~ who says come right over.
Sam had lost touch w/ Vivi, the journalist, because of her brother, Zach...and Sam's feelings of betrayal and hurt when Zach just up & forgot about her. When Zach is the one who at Vivi's apartment when Sam gets there, w/ his missing eye, scarred face, and sparks flying between them, Sam runs...right into a killer.
Is that teaser enough?? LOL, you HAVE to get these books. I'm doing book 2 today ~ book 3 isn't out on Audio yet, but guess what? It just won a National Readers Choice Award, so I'm sure it will be out soon!!
This was a solid story. Characters held my interest, had an unforeseen ending, and the narrator did a good job. Well done, but not great enough to entice me to listen to it again.
I want my romantic suspense with much less of the "I'm no good for you" conflict. But if we have to have this at least they could communicate some. They have too much of this and too little of the suspense.
The story was solid, the characters were genuine, but the narration was so bad. It was like listening to a smart-ass teenager. It ruined the whole listening experience.
