I've listend to a few Sandra Brown books and this one was the best. I even listened to it again straight after I enjoyed it that much. The twists and turns were brilliant. Thank you for a great read/listen...makes my nights at work go much quicker...thanks
This is an awesome story with great characters and a thrilling plot. The story was long, but there were several twists and turns in the story to fill the time. And the narrator was fantastic!
Not sure what the previous reviewer disliked this story so much. I found it thoroughly entertaining and well worth the credit!
Hated sex scenes & any dialogue about sex...language was beyond unrealistic...lots of contradictions.....describes character or situation & within 2 minutes whatever happens next doesn't fit with the character development. Poorly written...felt like modern day harlequin romance. BLECK!
disappointment ....found myself speaking out loud to the narrator about how unrealistic a comment or situation was.
wish I hadn't bought....
I have read most of Sandra Brown' s books. This one was very hard to get into. I finally gave up after a few tries.
Say something about yourself!
I decided to pick up Where There's Smoke after devouring both Mirror Image and White Hot. I'm glad it was on sale. The story wasn't bad, but it didn't live up to my high expectations after reading the first 2 books. Although the book maintained a good pace throughout with many twists and turns, I had a hard time enjoying it, especially after its conclusion.
One of the big problems with the audiobook was that the main characters weren’t likable. Key was more relatable than Lara, but halfway through the book he was still acting like a playboy. And while Lara wasn't a bad person, I found her very self-righteous, which turned me off her character. She was always preaching or harping at someone, which was funny since an affair had landed her in her current situation.
However, my biggest dislikes were the sex scenes and the final mystery. Usually I have no issues with sex in books, but in this case I found the vocabulary used vulgar. It wasn't sexy at all! And then the twist at the very end also put me off. Had it been revealed closer to the beginning I would have found Lara more relatable.
Although Where There's Smoke was an entertaining audiobook that contained a maze of mysteries, there are better books out there, including ones by Sandra Brown. I guess I'll just have to resume my search for the perfect book, because I didn’t find it here.
The whole story I enjoyed. I love to listen to books by Sandra Brown.
Suzanne Brockmann Troubleshooters Series.
I have and it was the same, she is good in what she does.
Yes. With the audio version you get a sense of the characters
I liked the whole book
They all were good
This is a very gripping book and the narrator does a very good job with each character. The plot moves right along and keeps you wondering right up to the very end. However it is a very sad book, so before you start, make sure you have a box of tissues!
This book is all over the place, it feels like. It is too long for the story line. Takes forever to get to the point and feels disjointed. The trip to Montesangre just doesn't fit in with the rest of the story.
I just wish that the authors would stop using such foul language in their books. I can understand a few word now and then, but when almost every line has several off colored words, it gets very annoying. Most of the time, these words do not add anything to the content of the book. I have read books with very little foul language and the book was just as interesting and enjoyable, probably more so. I am more likely to read more books from those authors than from the ones that only have a limited vocabulary, and that vocabulary is one of disgusting words. It is a shame, as this author wrote a good plot and the people in the book were well developed. I would like to read more of her books, but will think really hard before purchasing one again.
