I love all of Linda Howard's books but this one is a favorite of mine.
I have not listened to Laurel Lefkow prior to this book. She did a wonderful job.
This is one of my favorite Linda Howard titles...I had bought the abridged edition and hated it. Because I had read the whole book - the edited version ruined the storyline. SO glad Audible provided the WHOLE book!!! Yeah.
As for the story, it is very interesting with a paranormal twist and great plot. I very much liked Sweeney and Richard. No games - both very straight-forward. Excellent listen on this one.
I really enjoyed this title and am so glad it is finally available in an unabridged format. This is one of the older Linda Howard titles and the story is somewhat dated but still very enjoyable. Sweeny, raised by careless parents who reveled in emotional excess has worked hard to live a controlled life on her own terms, which is reflected in the delicate and deliberate aesthetic shown in her paintings. When she unexpectedly receives extra paranormal "gifts" she is most thrown by the way they have altered her artistic style. But then the psychic gifts and her artistic abilities begin to merge, and Sweeny is deeply afraid of the changes. The hero is typical Howard in that he is a strong, alpha male character who moves the romantic plot line forward at amazing speed, but he is interesting all the same. His situation adds a lot of twists to the plot and I found him to be an interesting and likable character. There are some twists at the end of the story that keep the mystery and suspense interesting. Still one of my favorites of Linda Howard's older stories.
No, of course not! But, for one who loved the print version--this is a joy to listen to. It's a great story with a mystery and a twist. And, something that I enjoy with my suspenseful romances, a lot of humor.
As an artist, I loved that the heroine was one as well. Sweeney is totally obsessed with her art and isn't looking for a romance as she deals with some really weird paranormal changes in her life.
Sweeney's 'Jeopardy prowess' in the police station. Really funny!!
I both laughed and cried and that's a tribute to Linda Howard since I've read this book many times before.
My only regret is that the hero (Richard Worth) doesn't have a deeper, sexier voice--which my imagination provided.
I'm so glad I listened to the audiobook instead of reading the book. While I would have liked the book in print, I can't help but think the narrator increased my enjoyment quite a bit. Narrator Laura Lefkow's unusual delivery worked perfectly for the heroine. The reader felt the distracted way Sweeney's mind worked, complete with her vagueness and social unease. It was very well done.
Although I figured out the killer early on, I still enjoyed the mystery. The characters, from Sweeney and Richard to the secondary characters, like the police detectives, were well fleshed out and enjoyable. The dialogue was well written and made sense, something I always appreciate!
PLOT: SWEENEY is an artist who's nightmares take form in paintings that are scenes of a crime.
Paranormal but a good one~ Paris Sweeney a gifted artist has some "extra skills" that cannot be explained including her dreams take form in paintings of the scene of a crime. She is soon being pursed by Millionaire Richard Worth~ who finds her FACINATING. When Richards Wife is killed both Richard and Sweeney become suspects. This is a solid paranormal and one of Howards BEST. it moves along very well and fast does not drag. Sweeney and Richard are a great couple who find their attraction hot and add the mysterious killer who kills several people around the couple. GREAT READER~ AND SOLID PLOT I give this one 4 out of 5 for very good plot, great couple and 5 STAR reader. hard to find in abridged format for many years.... audible has been able to obtain this in unabridged what a TREAT~ thank you Audible. also released are MR. PERFECT, OPEN SEASON, AND ALL THE QUEENS MEN in unabriged~ I would highly reommend Mr. Perfect as her very best~ oldies but goodies~
I never read the book only the audio, the beginning was a little hard to listen to but keep listing the story get really good a little predicable but very entertaining all the same.
as I said the beginning was a little hard to get through but the story did develop to be very fun and the thing with the ghosts was a nice twist.
no this was the first audio book I have listened to by Laurel Lefkow the performances was great,.
No because the narration was so terrible. The narrator had no inflection and didn't try to make the male characters sound male or the female characters distinctive.
The book itself had suspense, caused great anticipation, was incredibly enjoyable. I find most of Linda Howard's thrillers to be great and this book was no exception.
If there had been ANY performance at all it would have been better. There was no attempt to make the characters come alive.
Talented, psychic and sexy.
I have an addiction to Audio books. What I can't get at the library, I come to Audible and they are always having a sale. I have way more audiobooks than I could possible listen to in over 3 years, but I can't help but adding to my collection and I read a little of everything but mostly romance and paranormal goodies.
I love the writen version, one of my favorites by Linda Howard. I enjoyed the audio just as much.
