Although I read this year's ago as a teen, I cried while listening to this again as a grown woman..especially when his dad acknowledged him as a writer (maybe because I can relate as a writer wanting acceptance of my path in life.) Also the way he skillfully and artistically uses his words always have me in awe.

After a brutal divorce, Abigal Wilson vowed to never love again, but when Brent Carson crosses her path, she simply can't resist his good-guy persona that exemplifies perfection. From A to Z, Brent appears to have it all. Abigal falls head over heels for him - until the unthinkable happens. Brent's announcement - "I'm just not that into you" - sends Abigal on a downward spiral. She can't cope with ill treatment from another man, and now nothing would please her more than to see Brent making his way to the gates of hell.

What did you love best about Stalker?

The best part of this audiobook was the narration! I love Patricia Floyd!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Stalker?

Just when I thought the story would be over, it only got deeper with a lot of twists and turns.

What does Patricia Floyd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Patricia is a pro! I'm an author and bookworm and I have always admired her voice! She really knows how to tell a story! I hope to work with her one of these days.

Any additional comments?

KUDOS TO THE AUTHOR!
