Publisher's Summary

When local television news anchor Katherine Kyle is thrust into the national spotlight, it sets in motion a chain of events that will change her life forever.

Jamison "Jay" Parker is an intensely career-driven Time magazine reporter; she has experienced love once, from afar, and given up on finding it again.... That is until circumstance and an assignment bring her into contact with her past.

Kate and Jay's lives intertwine, leading them on a journey to love and happiness - until fate and fame threaten to tear them apart. What is the price of fame? For Kate the cost just might be everything. For Jay the price could be the other half of her soul.

Critic Reviews

"Ames, much feted for her lesbian mysteries and romances, adds another to her record of successful storytelling. Narrator Emily Beresford provides a fully voiced performance of the two featured women. Kate and Jay first met during a skiing accident when Jay was in college. Now, a few years later, they're meeting again as Kate, a TV journalist, reports live from a state capitol bombing. The crush Jay felt that first time is still much alive, and Kate, happily, is feeling romantic now, too. Beresford effectively differentiates the two principals, as well as the wide range of secondary characters, by varying pitch and tone. Her pacing fits each scene, whether one of tenderness or camera-rolling chaos during news reporting. The first of a series, this audiobook, and its team of Kate and Jay, should find a welcome audience." (AudioFile Magazine)

good at first then got boring

Would you try another book from Lynn Ames and/or Emily Beresford?

I would hoping book 2 is better. I have to think if I would give it a chance.

Would you ever listen to anything by Lynn Ames again?

So far no. Have to think about it.

Which character – as performed by Emily Beresford – was your favorite?

The dog. Jay cried to much and I thought Kate was stronger then she went weak, so the dog.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.<br/>

Intriguing and interesting st

For a 2010 copyright there were some head scratching things like using the words "word processors " instead of computer or laptop, and a lack of cell phones and texting, but the presence of answering machines etc. I don't know why but I kept thinking this story must have sat on the shelf for a while.

I enjoyed the story, and a pretty rich background that was provided for each of the characters. There was enough adventure, but trail of every day life in an interesting way, and drama. I do at some point think I will get my fill of the knight in shining armor and rescued princess but perhaps book two will even things up a bit.

I am looking forward to more of these women

made it 12 chapters and I am done.

I am confused because I have read her work in the past and enjoyed it. This one is different. The reading AND the book is WAY too dramatic. You find yourself thinking "That can't be what is about to.....okay, it is."

'Love'

I liked the overall story and the characters. Hated how often the word 'love' was used as an endearment - I'm a dour Scot. Will read the book instead of listening next time because I do want to know what happens next.

book is better than the audio

What did you like best about The Price of Fame? What did you like least?

the book is great and a good story but the narration is awful the voice to too weak for a strong character like Kate

What other book might you compare The Price of Fame to, and why?

The Devil Unleashed Ali Vali a great book

What didn’t you like about Emily Beresford’s performance?

the voice is too weak its hard to think that Kate is a anchor on tv and supposed to be this person who controls a room and Jay just sounds like a little girl

If this book were a film would you go see it?

probably

Any additional comments?

i was looking forward to getting these audio books as i really liked the books but now i don`t think i will as it`s a struggle to get through this one
