I mistakenly purchased this audible thinking it was murder/mystery but was soon listening to a romance easy to guess every step and no mystery audible book. So if you like cheesy romance novels this is a good book. The reader did well and the characters were mostly likable. I could have been more into it and put up with the romance had the story not of been so predictable.

I have never rated a solid 5 stars until now. This story was heart wrenching and at times it was hard to see it through because of just how truly troublesome it got. I even had times I was looking over my shoulder. I have read a lot reviews where people thought the main characters decisions were not what they would of done calling it far fetched. But in my opinion I think that if faced with any of those situations... how could you know what one would do?

The performance was amazing. I did have to change the narration down to 75x, not sure what that was all about. I have never needed to adjust it before. The reader did amazing I can’t imagine anyone doing any better. I will look for more books performed by her.

If you are not faint of heart I recommend listening to this book. But be prepared to make excuses to drive slower and longer because there are times you will not be able to turn it off. Great book, great story and fantastic performance!

I liked the build up of the story but end fell flat. The dr self investigates to free a fellow dr freind of a conviction and to prove who the real guilty party is. I enjoyed the reader and his character build up. To me I was unable to predict the real culprit but think that has I tried I likely would of been able to guess part of the real scenario. In the end though I felt the wrap up left much to be desired and needless chapters. I would of much preferred to know what had become of the other characters rather then medical nonsense. Still the main parts of the story were good and it’s worth a listen.

For me I really like this reader and her voice portrayed much emotion in the different characters.
However,
The story line for me was slow, and the back and forth of the novel from different time stamps left a bit to be desired. The book would go from the Day of - to the day after - to two days before and back again, all over the place. Because of this I found myself not always listening then realizing I missed some of the story causing me to rewind. Then some of it would drag on and i felt myself thinking and feeling as if it really dragged on and on. I believe the authors intent was to create a sense of building up to the 'what happened' and 'how did it happen' but overall it was more frustrating the suspenseful. There was some parts where the author didn't quite lead up to why the character was having a thought or I should say really express fully what that thought was which left me wondering what was that all about.

In the end I did give this book a 4 star rating and mostly that is because I like the reader and did like the story for the most part. Book could of been shortened and the same story would of been told. But if you are into a suspenseful story this does not quite hit the mark. Its more of a lingering question that you are hoping would just come out so you can move onto your next audible book in your hit list!

I had a very hard time sticking with this book in the beginning due to the readers voice whispering the speaking loudly. Her different character voices were great but it was the sound dubbing that was as annoying. As others have said I found myself adjusting the volume continuously. Even as the book progressed it only got tolerable.

With that being said I love the authors books and this one also. Story was good and it had me hooked. I liked both the main characters stories and was not certain how it would all tie in together until the end. With that being said I think the ending was a little less then desirable in wasn’t quite sure what that was all about. Still good enough to earn that goth star for the story from me.

The story was something new but the ending just left you with unfinished story line and questions. I thought that there was hardly much left (don't want to give away story with to much detail) in the way of ??? to create a successful idea of outcome once the story ends. So therefore I was left with little hope. I did like the story and thought that with some tweaks and changes it would of been a solid 4.

I felt the reader was mediocre but not entirely bad. The story line dragged on in the beginning about the main character and her struggles/addiction, so much so I nearly quit the entire book. The story did pick up in the middle and the end with many twists and turns. I was surprised with the outcome but the end was not final and that really bummed me out. I would of liked to know that all was finalized (best way to say this with out giving away the end) and complete.

All in all the book is worth a free download.
