I usually like her books, but not this one. The story dragged slowly like finger nails on a chalk board. I really want my credit back. The story line was reasonable, but the characters personalities were over the top ridiculous. Both sisters were delusional in a "I need to be committed to a psyche ward" type of way. Because of that story line was predictable and ridiculous. I desperately want my credit back.

Charles thought he had it all - until a devastating betrayal and the shattering loss of his family drove him to living on the streets. Beatrice is the first person who's truly cared about him in a long time. Little by little, he's finding reasons to care about rebuilding his life. Drawn to Charles and the temptation of a second chance, Beatrice is faced with the hardest of decisions. But his insight, secrets - and the reminder of a profound past encounter - will give her unexpected inspiration, gratitude, and the strength she needs to find her way - perhaps in time for Christmas.

It's the same story is been told over and over and over again. I don't know why this author decided to tell it one more time when there's so many other storylines she could've explored. The narrator is so stiff I don't know m author continues to use her. She fails to give the characters personality. She reads monotoned and because of this it's difficult to tell who is who sometimes.

I really enjoyed the series and I look for new books all the time from this author and the storyline. However this storyline took a long time to get to a very disappointing and lackluster end. I usually enjoy the Jasmine character but she was over-the-top stubborn and sometimes extremely ignorant and because of that I did not enjoy the storyline. The The other characters coddled her when They really should've just cussed her out and called her what she was ignorant and stupid. The The storyline ended with a very basic

This was good right up to the stupid way that they ended the story. Basically it didn't end...The author just stopped writing instead of coming up with a soft ending that left story lines open for a sequel. I was so bothered that I went looking for book 2 and discovered that the exact story was written under another title, same story, by the same author, with a different narrator. The second narrator performed much better. Good Luck...

I can't imagine that it would be intentional for the authors to leave out pieces of the story. The storyline started, jumped into other storyline, and didn't really flow. It was interesting, but it was not the best story in the Kingpin series.

This is a typical stalker chick and jealous best friend story.Their motives were pretty weak, but I guess crazy people aren't supposed to make sense. However, it was suspenseful and I truly could not predict the outcome, so for that I gave this a four-star rating. The narrator did a pretty good job keeping it interesting and giving the character's personality through voice. great job I will definitely continue to read and listen to Carl Weber's books.
