Publisher's Summary

Gabriella Starr has silk suits, champagne tastes, and a great new career. She also has a strange man following her around Boston. Two of them, actually. When she tries to chase down the first, she encounters the second - ex-cop and new D.A. Cam Yaeger. He's sure she's in trouble, but Gabriella bristles when he offers to help. She's way too attracted to him, and it's not like her to go for law-enforcement types anyway. She's far too independent, too naturally defiant. And she's spent too many nights in jail....

Cam Yeager likes cold beer, his Bruins sweatshirt, and shaving every other day. He knows all about Gabriella Starr, her eccentric father, and their years rescuing rare, endangered orchids no matter the stakes. Now something shady is going on in Boston. And something explosive is hovering on the horizon as well: the wild fireworks of two intense opposites falling in love....

It was ok

I have a full library of mostly suspense, mystery with a little romance novels. I listen to many Nora Roberts books over and over such as The Witness.

A Rare Chance was just OK. It just isn’t a good enough story that I would want to listen to it even a second time. I dozed off a lot and had to keep rewinding. Some parts were very interesting but some parts were very flat.

The narrator was very good.

Quit listening; couldn’t finish

When questioned about her dad being attacked & her boss still questioned her, then she dropped the issue about the attack, I quit listening. That was the compelling evidence. It became stupid after that.

Intriguing

I really enjoyed the mystery. I continued to wonder who was really trustworthy! It was a clean romance and would enjoy reading more of her books.

This seems like it was written by a screenwriter. Characters under developed, I couldn't tell what the orchids had to do with anything. is there something about orchids I don't know. The opening was terrible there was not enough done to set the scene. Maybe if this was set in the forties or something. Story was so choppy. Not terrible but not good.

Good story, but a little lengthy

I enjoyed the premise of the story, and I loved the characters very much. However, I felt like it took to long to get to the point. But overall as a whole it was a very good story.

writer show promise

The word thick used to describe Cams legs and other descriptions of main characters needs a little work but great story, PS: reader of 57 audible books and former technical writer.
