Publisher's Summary

Unforgettable characters, sizzling romance, and riveting suspense: These are the trademarks of beloved author Judith McNaught. With millions of devoted fans and 10 New York Times best sellers to date, McNaught is a writer whose work just gets better with each new novel - and Every Breath You Take is the book listeners have been waiting for. Returning to the lavish Chicago setting of her popular novel Paradise, and revisiting some of that book's characters as well, this story will captivate in inimitable Judith McNaught style.

High atop a snow-covered hill, the stately old Wyatt mansion is perched like a crown, its stone spires pointing upward, its stained glass windows glowing like colorful jewels. Such opulence means success and, surely, happiness. But on the eve of wealthy philanthropist Cecil Wyatt's 80th birthday, all the money in the world won't bring back his missing grandson, William Wyatt. The only thing for certain: Foul play was involved.

The family, the police, the media - all have tried in vain to discover the young man's fate. Now suspicion has turned shockingly toward William's own half-brother, the rather distant and enigmatic Mitchell Wyatt.

Kate Donovan never dreamed that a chance romantic encounter on a tropical island paradise would tag her as a suspect in a high-society murder case. But after Kate tangles with the darkly charismatic Mitchell Wyatt, she finds herself cast in a shadow of guilt and mistrust. As the Chicago police tighten their net, it will take all of Kate's ingenuity to clear her name. With her calm, cool wit, and the help of a man who may or may not be a dangerous catch, Kate vows to claim the life and love she desires.

A FAVORITE OF MINE BUT WHERE IS BOOK 1 - 3?

Any additional comments?

I enjoy her books but have a pet peeve with either Audible or Publisher. I hate when a whole series is not available. This is book 4. Where is 1 - 3?

Love Judith McNaught!

Where does Every Breath You Take rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

From the perspective of plot, depth of characters, this book ranks high. Overall performance ranks very low, painful listening.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susan Denaker?

YES! Pace much too slow; made listening to the book frustrating. In summary -- a great book, but terrible narration. The abridged version had a much more suitable narrator; please go back to that person.

Love It

If you could sum up Every Breath You Take in three words, what would they be?

Continuous Action, layers

What was one of the most memorable moments of Every Breath You Take?

The chemistry at the start. The reuniting at the end.

What about Laura Dean’s performance did you like?

I truly believed there were more than one person reading.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Chemistry in the real world.

Any additional comments?

I've yet to read a Judith McNaught book that I did not absolutely love. Filled with actions not a bunch of descriptions that are detailed to death.

You don't get the actual ending except for the happily ever after.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Every Breath You Take?

NONE!!! I would have included to ones you took out!

Another Great McNaught

Where does Every Breath You Take rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a great story that is well read.

Have you listened to any of Laura Dean’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is my first Laura Dean book

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

It is the kind of story that makes your heart hurt and end happily ever after.

Any additional comments?

Was hoping for more of Matt and Merideth, was a bit disappointed there.

Not as good as some of her other books

I’ve read most of JM’s historicals but this was my first contemporary read - I have to say it wasn’t as good. I didn’t really feel the emotional connection between the leads unlike in books such as Whitney, my love, almost heaven, something wonderful and so on. Unfortunately for me, audible doesn’t have any of her older books :(. Usually I find that JM books bring a roller coaster of emotions out of me - in this book I had to force myself to care. Skip this!

Not Judith McNaught's best, felt a bit rushed, left loose ends but was quite enjoyable.

Good story & narration but audio faulty

Enjoyed the storyline, Judith McNaught's writing style, & the narration but the audio often repeated sentences. I was also disappointed that only #4 of this series is available on audio.
