Chicago's Best

This audiobook got to be very interesting and ended in an exciting climax. Ian is a true hero and Kat is a strong woman whose strength gets her into trouble.

Good Romantic Thriller

With lots of thrills, romance and suspense, I really enjoyed this story. Kat was definitely one tough cookie and I love strong female characters. I also liked her softer side and her habit of taking in strays, be they cats or people. Ian was obviously smitten, even though he tried to keep things professional. It was sweet that he helped Kat bake in her cafe when he was protecting her. The narration was pretty good and held my interest throughout. I would recommend Chicago's Best.

Fantastic story

Great suspenseful listen. Twists that I didn’t see coming, sweet romance, and plenty of laughs made this a great choice that will be going on my listen on repeat list. I loved getting to know Ian and Kat. Narrator did an amazing job of bringing the characters to life.

Simple

This story has a simple plot with an easy to follow story. But sometimes that is exactly what I want. It was easy to listen to. Enjoyable.

Simple, wholesome, sweet romance with some action

Chicago's Best was a fun, sweet story with a bit of action, and I enjoyed it. I listened to the story on Audible, and the narrator does a good job. She is a bit too exuberant at times, and I wish her voice had different levels to fit different emotions. Kat owns a popular café, and finds herself on the wrong side of some bad guys. Ian, a police detective, is new to Chicago, and is partners with one of Kat's friends. When someone starts vandalizing Kat's café, Ian steps up to protect Kat. Kat is pretty reserved, but the 2 begin to grow feelings for each other. The romance is sweet and wholesome. They are cute together. I liked the mystery element of who was after Kat, and I liked how the story flowed. The story does lack a bit of depth, but overall, I liked it.

Interesting plot

Would you listen to Chicago's Best again? Why?

Maybe, I think its good.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Not sure they all have something to offer.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I liked how clearly the male and female voices were done, but I didn't like how paced the reading was in places.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

I had not known what to expect when I started reading this book, and it took me a few chapters to get into it. The mystery is amazing and the plot is smooth. I love all the personalities and the ending is really good.

I got this free copy in return for my honest review.

Good easy listen

A good thriller - calling it "lighthearted" is very accurate. Keeps you engaged and interested without being gory/violent. Good amount of spice to the sexiness between the two lead characters.

a very nice book

really I like this book, but I didn't like in the narrator she was very how to say to right? boring. I'm sorry but she really didn't show any emotions and the book was so cute and so romantic but I couldn't hear the emotions through her voice....
I felt like someone is reading me a good night story ... and the book itself was very good, I like the characters Ian was very cute and very professional... the romance was adorable.
the only thing that was a little bit lacking for me was the ending... I was expecting something more .. don't know how to explain without making a spoiler....
but the book was nice and very enjoyable I enjoyed the way the book was written and the sweetness of the two characters was adorable
overall it was a good book.

Review

This is a really sweet old fashioned love story and I liked that. The main part of the story is about a girl who used to go out with a shady character she did not realize was really bad. Once she did she left him. A long time later he returns and starts harassing her. The police are called in and she has a detective detail protecting her while they try to find out why he has come back. One of the detectives likes her and she reciprocates his feelings. Quite exciting in parts clean romance.
