Aelissm Davis figured she would eventually return home to Northstar, Montana, but not like this - desperate for the tranquility of the secluded valley and plagued by memories of her dead boyfriend and the advances of an obsessive former friend. Just when she begins to relax, a call from her old friend makes it clear he wasn't deterred, and she calls her overprotective uncle for advice. Things become even more tangled when he sends Patrick O'Neil "on vacation" to keep an eye on her.

Storyline was okay but the narration was not at all realistic. Might try another book by Susie O’Connell but will not if narrated by the same person .

This is the best book that I have read in a while. It kept my interest from page 1 to the end even though it was long. The narrator was great!

Rye Mallett, a fearless "freight dog" pilot charged with flying cargo to far-flung locations, is often rough-spoken and all business, but soft on regulations when they get in the way of meeting a deadline. But he does have a rock-solid reputation: He will fly in the foulest weather, day or night, and deliver the goods safely to their destination. So when Rye is asked to fly into a completely fogbound northern Georgia town and deliver a mysterious black box to a Dr. Lambert, he doesn't ask questions.

Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her. While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce," Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name.

Billionaire Ian Shaw can have everything he wants - except a happy ending. Or at least that's what it feels like with his fortune recently liquidated, his niece, Esme, still missing, and the woman he loves refusing to speak to him. In fact, he doubts she would date him even if they were stranded on a deserted island. Despite her love for Ian, Sierra Rose knows he has no room in his life for her as long as the mystery of his missing niece goes unsolved. The only problem is, Sierra has solved it, but a promise to Esme to keep her whereabouts secret has made it impossible to be around Ian. When the PEAK chopper is damaged and Sierra lacks the funds to repair it, Ian offers a fundraising junket for large donors on his yacht in the Caribbean. But the three-day excursion turns into a nightmare when a rogue wave cripples the yacht and sends the passengers overboard.

I selected this book based on high ratings and wish I had not. Story line was okay but could have been better if the “water adventures” were more realistic. So many whiners that ran from any hint of a problem. Big disappointment.

Where does Gone Too Far rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I read/listen every day for at least 2 hours and this is one of the best books I have read in months.

What other book might you compare Gone Too Far to and why?

None, and that is one of the reasons I like it so much. So may books seem to be alike.

What about Patrick Lawlor and Melanie Ewbank ’s performance did you like?

Both are great narrators. I have heard Patrick before and he is one of my favorite. Both are believable in their character voices.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Good question. "Get ready to be entertained"

Any additional comments?

Just purchased 2 more Brockman books with same narrators. Can't wait to start.
