Suspenseful And Entertaining!

This is the first Vicki Tharp book I have listened to and hopefully won’t be the last. This was a suspenseful, highly entertaining, enjoyable story with interesting characters. I really liked all the characters in the story and even the killer, as evil and creepy as he was, was well written. D.C. Cole remains to be one of my favorite narrators. He does such a fabulous job of bringing the characters to life and also being able to convey the emotions necessary for maximum enjoyment. This book was given to me for free and I provided this unbiased review and have no qualms highly recommending this book.

Superbly Narrated Romantic Suspense

This was an intriguing romantic suspense novel that was superbly narrated by D.C. Cole. This is the first book I have read by Vicki Tharp and though I enjoyed the story overall, I think the narration is what ultimately saved it for me. Please note, however, that this isn't my usual type of read/listen, so I'm sure that influenced my overall feelings about this book.

D.C. Cole was incredible! He shifted seamlessly from character to character and I enjoyed both his male and female voices. This is the first audiobook that I have listened to narrated by him, but it certainly won't be my last! His performance was emotional and gripping and there were times it had goose bumps rising on my arms. The story itself was entertaining, but the pacing was a bit slow and didn't really pick up until the end. I also liked all the characters overall, but no one really stood out as amazing. I did want to scream at Audrey a few times though for being TSTL and Scott for being such an idiot about his/Audrey's feelings. I am a sucker for the friends to lovers/best friend's little sister tropes though, so I did enjoy that aspect of the story. Overall, Don't Look Back was a pretty entertaining and suspenseful book with excellent narration!

Suspenseful!

This was my first Vicki Tharp's book and won't be the last. This story is very well written, suspenseful, entertaining and fast pace! All the characters are very interesting. I love the two main characters Audrey and Scott. DC Cole did a fantastic narration with all characters. He did a really creepy voice when he was acting Ridley Meyer. Can't wait to listen to Jack's story!

Suspenseful and frustrating!

This one had me talking to (screaming at) the characters as I was listening! It took me a minute to get into it, then it was full of suspense so I couldn’t put it down.....BUT THEN, I was so frustrated with the characters, I put it down to come back later. Normally, when a book gets that kind of reaction from me, it’s an automatic 5 stars! HOWEVER, I gave this book 4 stars because my reaction was due to things that just didn’t seem plausible to me, it just didn’t make sense for the character to act that way so it was very frustrating.
As for the narration, D.C. Cole’s performance is outstanding! I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

Awesome!!!!

This book is such a multi-faceted gem. I was blown away by the performance of DC Cole in this book. He was fantastic for the voice of the serial killer, Ridley, and did awesome for the other characters. The relationship of Audrey and Scott was unique. I so liked Jack in this story along with his four legged companion Gypsy. Audrey's brother Matt and the sheriff Trevor also added so much to this book. The salt water marsh was the perfect background for this story. The author wrote such great imagery in this book. I could feel the humidity and breeze listening to this book. The humor in the story was also so fitting. I loved the suspense and tension this story had along with the simmering romance. I would love to listen to more by this author and narrator.

Cole elevated the entire story for me!

My first Vicki Tharp story, I was pleased with her writing. I was happy with the romance added and honestly didn’t know who to root for when a love triangle unfolded a bit. The slow build up to the action, the meet up, in this story made me feel almost consumed by the story. I couldn’t stop listening and found myself cleaning just so I could listen longer! I’d definitely listen again. My only problem with the story was I wanted more of what the killer did with his victims and his story. I wanted a bit more in his head.

This was my first book narrated by DC Cole and he was fantastic! He has this real deep voice that first seduces you with the power behind it. But Cole also expressed so much emotion in his infliction. It was amazing! I always feel a bit tentative when having one narrator take on several points of views, but Cole was perfect! I had no problems following the voice of who he was. He is fantastic in the mind of the serial killer; I could feel my own heart speeding up! He totally elevated the entire story for me!

Don't Look Back

My first book with this author, and it was really fun from the start. I really liked the characters, though I wanted to throttle Aubrey a few times. I was really hoping Jack would win her over at first, but then he seemed a little too nonchalant about her safety at times. Where Scott seemed too uptight or off at first, both men grew on me for different reasons and traded places. And, Ridley? Well, he was just crazy. What a fun thriller.

DC Cole did an excellent job on the narration, proving he can turn that voice of his from smooth romance to hair raising psycho. Always a favorite for me to listen to as it appears there's no genre he can't do.

A great story

Would you listen to Don't Look Back again? Why?

I will be listening again very soon. This was so compelling I think it definitely needs a second listen.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I thought all the main characters were great Audrey was a mix of emotions and quiet frustrating at times when she didn't listen or accept help. I loved Scott and felt for him because of his upbringing. But Ridley Meyer's was scary his obsession was crazy but he was so great to listen to if not a little skin crawling.

What about D. C. Cole’s performance did you like?

DC Cole was great his voice was so suspenseful. He brought the story to life.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I could not stop listening as i just needed to know the outcome. the parts with Ridley were so amazing he was just so creepy made my skin crawl.

Any additional comments?

I just loved the feel of this book as it was not just about the serial killer aspect but the love story and the finding yourself story were just as crucial. I loved the feel and the flow of the book such a good listen.
