Publisher's Summary

In the still shadows of the confessional, a madman tauntingly reveals his plan for a murder he is going to commit, pulling Father Thomas Madden into a twisted game by disclosing his next intended victim: Tom's sister, Laurant. In a frantic race to protect her, Tom calls upon his best friend, elite FBI agent Nick Buchanan, to track the predator who is closing in on Laurant. Now, as an electrifying attraction grows between Laurant and Nick, so does the danger - and one false move will cost both of them everything that matters.

Critic Reviews

"Heartbreaker moves along at a racehorse pace, its plot swerving and darting with sudden turns and jolts.... Garwood's characters are well drawn." ( New York Post)

Suspenseful

Any additional comments?

Very intense and suspenseful book. The Hero, FBI agent Nick is a great male lead character. Laurent, the female lead is likable. The story is filled with extra characters which are all very likable or disgusting, as determined by the author. The book held by interest throughout, but I was on the edge of the seat toward the end at the church. The chemistry between Nick and Laurent is good and the story moves at a good pace. It is not rushed, but not slow either. The performer does a good job.

A good first read of Julie Garwood

Any additional comments?

This was my first time reading her work and it was a great read! The story line was amazing and kept you curious through out the chapters on who the bad guy was. The romance was just the right touch, not overly done or overly explicit. The narrating was really good, it went with the pictures in your head and brought out the personalities.

A good listen

Suspense with romance and a little humor. This is a book worth listening to or reading again and again. The narrator was easy to listen to without being boring or a monotone. You could hear the emotion without it being overblown. I am a Julie Garwood fan and this book will join my collection.

Not good

I have listened to several in this series and this one is not up to the level of others. I have listened to Mercy twice and loved it. I did not like the French accent

Strong story, interesting characters

Julie Garwood's stories are well-woven and have a good mix of depth and complexity but are still easy listening. The characters - especially the main ones - are typically likeable and well developed. I think this story could have included a little more depth for the protagonists, but it was good. I recommend it.

Didn't want it to end...

Where does Heartbreaker rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really think this was the best one (for me) in the criminal mystery category. I almost always guess the culprit, and am waiting for the author to catch up with me. That did Not happen with this one. It started off a little slow & I thought it might be too cliché', but I quickly changed my mind as I was drawn into the storyline.

What does Tanya Eby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I loved her voice & reading style. She really pegged each character and really brought them to life.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait to start on the 2nd book in the series, and sure hope it continues with at least 2 of these characters, if not more, because I just loved them all :-)

Predictable.

I had not read (heard) this author before. From the description, I thought the story was a thriller/suspense/mystery. It was more like a harlequin romance thinly veiled with a predictable story. Reader does a good job with accent, but has an irritating lisp.

ok

It was a decent story, but the narrator trying to do male voices and a French accent was annoying.
