Social worker Alison Taylor has a passion for protecting children. But now it seems she needs protecting. When her tormentor's attentions take a violent turn, she calls in reinforcements--her police-detective brother, Cole, and his new partner, ex-Navy SEAL Mitch Morgan. As her relentless stalker turns up the heat and the danger intensifies, Mitch takes a personal interest in the case. Because protecting Alison has become more than a job; his future depends on keeping her safe.

Would you consider the audio edition of Deadly Pursuit to be better than the print version?

I did not read the book but listened to the Audible version. There are some narrators I like better than others. This narrator showed a lot of feeling in the voices.

What other book might you compare Deadly Pursuit to and why?

Sandra Brown's Seeing Red is similar. A lot of drama and suspense mixed with a few surprises.

Which scene was your favorite?

Allison's compassion for children and people in need was demonstrated by her interaction with Eric in the grocery store.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Eric getting the license plate of the truck driven by Darrell. His need to help his friend and his perception that she was in trouble.

Any additional comments?

I'm a senior citizen and though I enjoy the romance and mystery, I get tired of too much detailed sex scenes. Irene Hannon does it just right.

The Alaskan Laundry is beautiful evocation of a place and a testament to the unshakable lure of home. It also offers an unforgettable story of one woman's journey from isolation back to the possibility of love.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I definitely would recommend this book to anyone that will listen. Brendan Jones did a very good job describing the fishing industry in Alaska. Also, the young woman shows bravery as well as frailties. She was amazing. I'm hoping the author will write more just like it. I'll be first in line.

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

Her voice describes audibly Tara's youth, vulnerabilities, and courage.

If you could rename The Alaskan Laundry, what would you call it?

I think it's perfect the way it is. The title is what drew me in.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for a sequel.

His interest in her was purely professional...or so he told himself. Nash Kirkland had sought out Morgana Donovan, self-proclaimed witch, to help him research his latest screenplay. The hardheaded skeptic didn't believe for a minute she was what she professed to be, but Nash somehow found himself falling under her bewitching spell. Nash had never trusted his feelings. How could he be sure the irresistible passion he felt was real and not just some conjurer's trick?

What disappointed you about Captivated & Entranced?

This was the only book I've ever quit reading in the first half of a Nora Roberts novel.
I found it without interesting plot and just plain boring.

Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Roberts again?

Of course, most of her novels are very good.

Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Ms. Plummer's performance was fine. The subject matter never deviated and repeatedly described same old thing...not her fault.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Boredom

Any additional comments?

No, just very disappointed. Waste of money.
