Broken Trust

A romantic suspense with the twists and turns Ms. Clark offers in her latest novel, Broken Trust. The tension and suspense of trying to find the murderer kept me turning pages to find who the bad guy was. The narration is very good.

A fun murder mystery

Broken Trust is a fun murder mystery that reminds me of an old Goldie Hawn/ Kurt Russell movie. The story is a bit silly, the characters do stupid things, but it's all entertaining fun. The narrator does a good job of bringing the story to life. Contains graphic sex scenes.

Excellent Romantic Suspense

Broken Trust was an excellent romantic suspense novel. The mystery was complex, and there where multiple twists and turns. The author didn't reveal all the answers until the very end of the book. I enjoyed both the backstories and characters of the hero and heroine. However, I did not enjoy the constant back and forth with "do I trust him," "do I trust her," "does he want me," "does she want me?" This pattern continued until almost the final paragraph of the book. This prevented me from becoming emotionally invested in them getting their HEA. That would be my only criticism. Otherwise, the story was very enjoyable and entertaining.

The narration was superb. There were a couple mis-pronunciations, but the narrator otherwise did a flawless job. He clearly differentiated the multiple characters, and his level of emotion was spot on. The sound quality of the recording was also excellent.

I received a copy of this audiobook from Audio Boom and the narrator in exchange for an honest review. I would definitely listen to other audiobooks written by C.B. Clark or narrated by Bill Nevitt.

Action packed

I liked the action and the mystery entwined in this story. It certainly kept me enthralled. The characters were interesting. Natasha was so abused by her ex husband she kept making stupid decisions which drove detective Chase crazy. A lot of mistrust at first but working together to see who is after Natasha leads to loving feelings if they can stay alive to have a future. I received a complimentary audio and I am voluntarily reviewing.

A very complicated murder mystery and love story

I wonder sometimes at the stupidity of characters in novels, and yet, the news is full of people doing foolhardy things.
This is a novel of a women who has been broken by an abusive husband, who is trying to make herself a new life. However, the break she has received in the form of an job interview, turns into a nightmarish situation, where she appears implicated in a murder.
The hero, in the guise of Detective Chase, is also a love struck fool, which causes him to do some stupid things.
Complicated much... you have no idea, unless you listen to or read the book.
I listened to the audio rendition, which I enjoyed so much, I listened into the wee hours of the morning. The narrator is particularly talented in voice characterisation for each individual within the story, giving a further interest level to an intriguing plot.

the case of the hidden briefcase...

Natasha Hartford has not had an easy life. She is finally recovering from an abusive relationship and getting her career back on track. Currently an illustrator for greeting cards, Natasha dreams of illustrating children's books and she is excited when she scores an interview with a renowned publisher. Except when she shows up for the interview, Natasha finds the man dead...murdered...and the police on scene believes that she knows something. Things do not get better when she arrives home and her ex-husband defies the restraining order and shows up threatening her and demanding that she hide a briefcase. Detective Chase Brandon is good at his job and always trusts his instincts...and right now his instinct is telling him that Natasha Hartford knows more than she's sharing. Chase plans on keeping a close eye on her...especially when he discovers the identity of her ex-husband, who's involved in the mob. But when attempts are made on Natasha's life, and bodies start piling up, Chase has to admit that she may be an innocent after all. Can he, and Natasha, solve the murders before it's too late? Will the budding attraction between them amount to anything? Good romantic suspense with lots of action and will keep you guessing 'whodunnit'! Narration is on point.

Great on suspense

I found this audiobook a little difficult to listen to. The suspense part of the plot was actually quite good. I thought the mystery and mayhem really carried the story forward. There are several twists in the plot that add interesting layers to the case and leave the audience unsure of who the culprit might be.

It was the romance that I found a little underdeveloped and the characters somehow lacking. Chase and Natasha definitely had chemistry but it wasn't as electric as one would expect. They constantly made poor decisions, whether related to the case or to their budding relationship, and spent quite a bit of time crying or regretting their choices. That said, the plot ends neatly, with all the loose ends tied, which is quite satisfying for the audience.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Great Romantic Suspense!

I was immediately pulled into this book by C.B. Clark. I loved the twists and turns the story took. The author had a great plot and well developed characters. This book has mystery and second chance at love, both of which I love. Bill Nevitt performed the book flawlessly. He adds the right emotions to the scene, and gives the characters distinguishable voices. Its a great listen with steam!
