I loved this book!!! How have I not heard of this author before? I was a big Sandra Brown / Iris Johansen / Nora Roberts fan for a long time; but thei..Show More »r formulas became too predicable for my liking.
This is an interesting protagonist who's working on some long term personal issues of her own while trying to juggle a daughter,a job and trying to not be killed. I will absolutely be seeking out more by this author!
Narrator did well- I'd listen to other things she's narrated gladly.
I was provided with a free copy of this audio book by the author, publisher or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.
I'm living the Libby Hellmann books about video maker Ellie Foreman and her in ability to keep out of police business!
The plot rambles som..Show More »e and there were loose strings left that bothered me, however the story is an exciting one with tense times.
I don't want to get into the story because it would be a spoiler - leave it to say that the narration by Beth Richmond was great, the story line exciting and were I reading it it would be a real page turner..as it was, I did listen all day and forgot about TV during the evening to finish it up.
I'm especially enjoying Ellies dad...he's a character, and her teen age daughter. Ellie has the ability to get involved in the most bazaar of situations.
Well worth your credit for the listen. I hope the series continues to be as exciting and well done.
Ms. Hellman is not just an author, she is a story weaver!! She takes pieces of people’s lives-- through varied time periods and physical locations-- ..Show More »and entwines them into a riveting tale of murder, intrigue, relationships, hopes, and dreams. The main story begins when Ellie Foreman, the lead character, receives an anonymous video of a young woman being murdered in Chicago and finds herself drawn into trying to help solve this case. Ms. Hellman pulls threads from the past…the crumbling Soviet Union, international diamond trade, greed, corruption, and the human price that is paid along the way. There are a number of supporting characters and time periods in the story and Ms. Hellman masterfully weaves them all together to create a book that I didn't want to put aside and that held my complete interest from start to finish. I love Ms. Hellman’s writing style and admire her storytelling abilities! Last, but certainly not least, the narrator (Robin Rowan) was easy to listen to and was a definite asset to this audiobook. I highly recommend it!
