As a long time reader of the "Jayne Castle" pen name of Ms. Krentz, this particular book has certainly left me wanting more. When I saw this set o..Show More »f 4 books on the Audible site, I was excited to make their purchase, expecting that a character with the last name Jones, would provide an entertaining read, as all of Ms. Krentz's other novels have. This story is lackluster, dragging at times, the romance almost non-existent. The narrator reads well, but can not seem to give her character's voices any depth or emotion. The only saving grace on the purchase of these books was that I got them on sale.
PLOT: Guinevere Jones #2~ Guins Boss Vandyke needs a GUARD for valuable papers but ends up desperately needing a "bodyguard".....
as Guinever..Show More »e Jones and Zach Justice continue with Volume two~ Guines new boss Edward Vandyke hires Zach Justice to be his bodyguard. In a moment of detective business drag he agrees thinking of a nice little jaunt with Guin they are off to San Juan Islands off the coast of Seattle. But Vandycke soon nees Zach to stay close to his side as he fears his own death. This is a good mystery and romance that involves treachery AND revenge. ADDED fun is Guinevere Jones who picks "intimate" moments to discuss business~ . Guin is wondering where their romance is going. (LOL) lots of interplay between the Jones and Justice couple and a neat little *start* to the THIRD STORY in the series at the end of THIS story. I GIVE THIS 4 STARS FOR OVER ALL.....4 FOR PERFORMANCE AND 3 STARS FOR STORY. FUN EARLY Krentz audio and there are 4 total Guinevere Jones stories the last two (series 3 & 4) will be released in early August 2012~~~
I didn't have high expectations for the Guinevere Jones series, considering they were written in the 80's and the genre has matured since then. The fi..Show More »rst two were decent, but this one was bad even given those caveats. The male protagonist was brutish, while the female made stupid decisions. It has the worst characteristics of the genre, even for that time period.
