Detective Nate Quinn has just been cleared for active duty after a bombing killed 18 people, including his partner, and left him dealing with PTSD. His first case back on the job involves the murder of Stephen Shaw, and his only lead turns out to be an old friend, Grace Callahan - and her life is in grave danger. Someone believes Shaw gave his psychologist information before he died. Information for which they are willing to kill.

The narrator did fine and was pleasant to listen to. What I found most frustrating (and why I gave the performance two stars) is that there is too much of a pause between almost every sentence. It didn't have a nice flow. I let my husband listen to a bit of it just to see if I was off base in my thinking, but he agreed with me. So, with a little more editing I think this could have been a much better recording. The story itself was good and the narrator's voice was fine but the recording was not edited well which made my listening experience not as good as it could have been.

Would you listen to Beyond the Waves again? Why?

Yes. It was a very enjoyable story and the narrator did a very good job of pulling you into the story and keeping you interested. It's also handy to be able to listen to a book if you need to get things done.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really liked Kylen. I enjoyed how he wooed Taysia. It was so sweet. He just came across as a really nice guy.

Which scene was your favorite?

I loved all the gifts Ky gave Taysia. She tried to play it down but she found herself rushing home each day to see what he left for her. It was a lot of fun.

Any additional comments?

The story is sweet, the narration is great and I definitely recommend it.

Would you listen to Montana Dawn again? Why?

I would listen to Montana Dawn again because it's an enjoyable story although I must confess that Faith made me a little crazy by not trusting Luke.

What does Corey M. Snow bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings the story to life. Especially Luke. His voice inflections were in the right places and I could follow along easily. He had a very easy voice to listen to as well.

Widowed former Hollywood actress Devynne Lang has been living a quiet life in the San Juan Islands of the Pacific Northwest. For years, she's hoped her fabricated death would keep her identity safe from the public, and more to the point, from the stalker who forced her into hiding. But strange things have been happening around her place and this time, with a daughter to protect, she can't afford one mistake – even if it means letting Carcen Lang get close enough to help.
