worth the frustration

i was hesitant to download this book since previous reviewers had mentioned the chapters are out of order. But i had already read Hot-Blooded and Shiver, and missed this one, so i decided to go ahead. I thought that perhaps since those reviews were written, the problem had been corrected.
The story and performance were very good. For most of the book i thought the killer was obvious, only to find out near the end that i was wrong, so i enjoyed the suspense and it was a good read.
Unfortunately the chapter order has not been corrected, but it is only in the last couple of hours of part 2 that the sequence of events is mixed up, and by then the story is far enough along that i could figure it out. The very last chapter and epilogue are correct, it's the 3-4 chapters previous to that which are out of order.
If you're a fan of Lisa Jackson's novels and don't want to miss this one, i would say go ahead and get it. In the meantime i will try to find a customer support email to report this.

Chapters are out of order.

This book was very good. The only problem I had with it was when I got to part 2, the chapters were out of order. I listened for a while thinking I had missed something, but when I got to the end of the book and there were still 3 hours left, I realized the chapters were off. I'm now listening to the missing chapters, which are out of order also. I have to keep flipping around to find the right order. It's not easy.

Defective recording

This is actually a very good story and is well read. Unfortunately the chapters are out of order. I find this totally unacceptable in an audio book! This recording should be pulled off the market until it is corrected.

a nothing book

Very mediocre book. Like choosing the wrong chocolate from the box, you wish you would have chosen a different one. Predictable, boring, just a nothing listen. I'm sure others would not mind this narrator, but I found her annunciations to be hard to listen to.

Chapters missing?

Great book, good plot, well-written and well-narrated. But somehow there's quite a bit of "something" missing between Part 1 and Part 2. I even downloaded it again to see if that would help. Not sure what the problem is, but be aware that it feels like a chapter or two has gone missing in this mystery.

Fabulous, Sad, Heartbreaking, thrill!

If you could sum up Cold Blooded in three words, what would they be?

Entertaining crime thriller!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot made it difficult for me to stop reading.

Which character – as performed by Alyssa Bresnahan – was your favorite?

Actually, I hate when women try and do men voices because it sounds like nails scraping down a chalk board which distracts from the story. Especially in the Romance department.

But Ms. Bresnahan sounded ok because she didn't try to sound like a man. It was her voice, maybe a bit deeper but not so noticeable that it distracted from the story.

I still prefer men narratives for my Romance Suspense, Mystery reads.

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

This story was an A+ read for me! but....

-------------- SPOILER ALERT ---------------------

When 'so and so' was dying, it felt like a B movie cliche where a person seems as though their dead, then lifts their head to say something, seems like they died for real this time but lifts their head once again to speak more. I was mentally screaming, just die already, good grief!

It was drawn out so freakin' long when a simple, I'm sorry or forgive me, would have sufficed and kept the moment in that heart wrenching stage.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Any additional comments?

I definitely recommend this!

AUTHOR NEEDS TO USE HER THESAURUS, BADLY.

This is a Standard Lisa Jackson story. Everything connects together well, killer Dies, Ending tied up In a Bow.

My ONLY COMPLAINT- Must She Continue to Use the phrase "She Scraped/Scarping Her Hair Into A Pony Tail/Bun"...That word "Scraped/Scraping" makes me think of SCRAPING OFF GREASE from an Oven, Greasy IS GROSS!...
Also, How Many Times Must the Word... MACABRE' (Used 5-6 times in this one book alone) & FRESSON- (To Have a Tiny SHIVER through your back. arms) BE USED IN A STORY MUCH LESS In Multiple Series of Books?
I Adore All of Lisa Jackson's Books. I just get nettled by the Continual usage of disgusting words. The Narrator works out fine. She sometimes Mispronounced local words that I was taught in elementary school to pronounce Very Differently.
