Makes me think of bored housewives reading romance novels

I really didn’t like this one. The story wasn’t gripping or plausible. The characters were the sort you might expect to find in a bad romance novel. Their interactions with each other were both predictable and totally unbelievable, like a bad soap opera. And the snobbery and pretensions were so thick, pushing through each new scene was like trying to walk through chest-deep marshmallow creme.

I struggled to rate the performance correctly because I get the feeling the narrator read this exactly the way the author would have requested— lots and lots of flowery, overdone snobbishness in the voices, excessive emphasis of the kind you would, again, expect from someone reading a bad romance novel to a bunch of soap opera fans.

I think I’ll probably return this one

Good .... but

I enjoyed the story line and most of the characters but found there were too many characters to keep them all straight. I found myself wishing I had a reference guide as to who was who.

Great story!

Tess Gerritsen is one of the best writers of all time! This story has espionage and romance. Great characters and an excellent performance!

Horrible Reader

I don't know if the book is good or not because of the reader. She tries to use different voices for the characters and it ends up beeing horrible. I finally had to just turn it off
