A romance in the jungle - Grant Sullivan, tough, masculine and handsome, is a retired military expert entrusted with a mission in the Costa Rican jungle - to find hostage and socialite Jane Hamilton Greer. When Grant rescues her in a rather cavalier and physical fashion, no love is lost between them. But gradually, their mutual attraction and passion becomes apparent and the jungle smolders in more ways than one.

What disappointed you about Midnight Rainbow?

I had to stop listening to the book because of the narrator. The heroine is described by the author as independent, strong and fearless. yet the narrator gave her an annoying baby voice that made the character sound brainless and stupid. The male lead is an 'all male' hero who rescues her in the jungle. Again the author creates a character who is supposed to be stealth, masculine, husky.. But the narrator gives him this goofy southern drawl that makes him sound more like a hick. I liked the story line but I had to stop listening because I good just no longer stand the narrator's voices and overall performance. I like Linda Howard. This was a real disappointment. I listen to on average a book a week and a rarely write a review. I felt compelled to write this review to alert other listeners. Buyer beware.

Would you be willing to try another one of Brenda Sweeney’s performances?

no
