I loved this book! So glad it ended the way it did. Jenny B Jones creates the best characters and I very much enjoy the story lines! I have read all of her books and have bought all the ones available on audible.
The narrator did a great job too!

As a medical examiner, Serena Hopkins is used to dealing with death. But that doesn't make it any easier when she's called to the eerie scene of a murder - especially when Serena realizes that she knows the victim. Nearly as unnerving is the presence of FBI agent Dominic Allen, her childhood crush. As evidence mounts and points to a serial killer with disturbingly familiar methods, Serena and Dominic must work to find a pattern and stop the killings before the murderer strikes again.

It was a good thing this narrator didn’t read for all three books. Her voice was fine for the main characters but it was super annoying when she tried to give other characters a voice different from the main characters. Honestly, I would have rather have heard them sound the same then the accents she gave them. I liked Hunter from the first book but this narrator made him sound stupid. I almost gave up listening but wanted to hear what happened. Thankfully, the third book has a different reader!

It was clean (which I loved) but boring at times. A lot of time was used to describe details that were unnecessary for the story. I kept waiting for something else to happen. The love story was sweet but unsatisfying. I starting skipping through to get to the end.

Back in college, Marco Dawson never thought of Belle as anything more than a friend. If she had crossed his mind on his wedding day, it was probably only to wonder why she hadn't shown up to be a bridesmaid. After all, his new wife was her old roommate. Seven years have passed since then, and Belle just found out that Marco is divorced and vacationing with his family in an elegant Cancun resort. She's not about to let the right man get away twice. She heads to the resort where she plans to casually bump into Marco and ignite some romantic flames.

Seventeen-year-old Abby Turner's summer isn't going the way she'd planned. She has a not-so-secret but definitely unrequited crush on her best friend, Cooper. She hasn't been able to manage her mother's growing issues with anxiety. And now she's been rejected from an art show because her work "has no heart". So when she gets another opportunity to show her paintings, Abby isn't going to take any chances. Which is where the list comes in. Abby gives herself one month to do 10 things, ranging from face a fear (three) to learn a stranger's story (five) to fall in love (eight).

When twenty-five-year-old Lyn sets off on her cruise vacation, all she wants is to forget that her dead fiance was a cheating scumbag. What she plans is a diversion uncomplicated by romance. What she gets is Braedon, an intriguing young surgeon. He's everything her fiance wasn't, and against the backdrop of the ship's make-believe world, her emotions come alive.

I’m actually surprised by the super good rating for this book. I personally found it boring. I made it to the island potion of the book and wasn’t loving the story or the characters. Someone put “funny” in their description of this book and I honestly can say there was one thing I found funny even before the kidnapping. It might have gotten better and I’m glad it’s clean, it just was not interesting enough to keep me excited about finishing.

I was not as fond of the second and third books in this series but they were pleasant enough. I really enjoyed the first and last books. The middle books helped to understand who the characters were throughout however and so I’m glad I read them.

I had a hard time with this one. The characters were fine but there wasn't enough relationship development in this book. That is usually the opposite with her books.
I just found this book a little boring.
I also had a really hard time listening to some of the voices. Seth's voice made him sound like a kid with a cold. To me, everything "he" said usually came out kind of corny.
Trina's voice also bugged me. It sounded very snotty all the time. I would not be able to change my voice for so many characters so I am not trying to criticize the reader, but it was hard to listen to. I was really looking forward to this one but this isn't one I will re listen to. I loved "p.s. I like you", so if you are looking for a good one...
