Who's BODY needs Guarding? 4 STAR Guinevere #2

PLOT: Guinevere Jones #2~ Guins Boss Vandyke needs a GUARD for valuable papers but ends up desperately needing a "bodyguard".....

as Guinevere Jones and Zach Justice continue with Volume two~ Guines new boss Edward Vandyke hires Zach Justice to be his bodyguard. In a moment of detective business drag he agrees thinking of a nice little jaunt with Guin they are off to San Juan Islands off the coast of Seattle. But Vandycke soon nees Zach to stay close to his side as he fears his own death. This is a good mystery and romance that involves treachery AND revenge. ADDED fun is Guinevere Jones who picks "intimate" moments to discuss business~ . Guin is wondering where their romance is going. (LOL) lots of interplay between the Jones and Justice couple and a neat little *start* to the THIRD STORY in the series at the end of THIS story. I GIVE THIS 4 STARS FOR OVER ALL.....4 FOR PERFORMANCE AND 3 STARS FOR STORY. FUN EARLY Krentz audio and there are 4 total Guinevere Jones stories the last two (series 3 & 4) will be released in early August 2012~~~

A Very Good Book

I like the book overall. However, the narrator isn't the best. Not as good as some, but better than others I have heard. Very little if any change in voice for different characters. The only way I knew who was talking, was by listening closely to who said what, by whom, etc.

What disappointed you about The Chilling Deception?

Narrator is such a drama queen I just wanted to smack her. The story was ok, but not as good as others by this author.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jayne Castle again?

Yes

Excellent performance of a good book

Kate Rudd was so good that I had to look her up online. She does a great job of making each character distinct.

Ms. Krentz deceives her readers

I don't know what Ms. Krentz was thinking when she put out this series of books. Did she need an extra few dollars?
So far I've read 2 of the 4 books I bought on sale, and have been very disappointed with the plotline and the characters.
The story drags and the characters are somewhat emotionless, definitely not up to Ms. Krentz's usual high standards. Makes me think that she had a ghost writer do them or that they were written back in the late 70's or early 80's. Even the office equipment is antiquated using an electric typewriter in Ms. Jones office.
Save your money wait until these go on sale, or buy the paperbacks.
