    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "This trilogy has promise"

    My 4 star rating of The One You Love is a bit generous, but the trilogy has promise. It was very late in the novel that I first guessed the identity of the bad guy. This is worthwhile suspense novel.

    "Excellent"

    Good storyline maybe a little predictable, but I would recommend it to a friend. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

    "this book is terrible"

    none if the characters seem invested in their own fates. the cops seem to do all investigation by random guessing. for instance instead of checking a phone log to see if a guy had gotten a threatening phone call, they simply assume it is a bad dream.

    the dialogue is totally unbelievable.

    "Not impressed"

    This was a hard book to listen to. The story took to many turns and lost me several times. The main character was not sympathetic but pathetic. The voice over work was awful. The voice changes were irritating. It took forever to get to the point and once that happened it just ended to abruptly. I was not impressed with the story or the voice over.

    Story
    "So Slooowwww. Abrupt Ending! Just glad its over."

    I can't really say I enjoyed this book. It was so slow and went on and on. I am so glad its over.

    I don't really even know how to review this book. It wasn't a romance mystery at all. It was just a mystery and a bad one at that. The story line and plot just dragged. It was like the author was desperately trying to make this such a mystery with twists and secrets that it became just boring and annoying. You just wanted it to end, and when it did, it was THE END, very abrupt. Like the author wants you to get the next book to find out all the things that happened to Dan. Well, I don't care. So no thanks.

    There is lots of dialogue throughout the entire book, actually it was mostly dialogue. I love lots of dialogue. However, the conversations were written in a choppy, in-circles type of way that was just annoying. The author was trying so hard at not wanting you to figure anything out, that the entire story suffered.

    I cannot recommend this book.

    I can recommend the narrator. I really enjoy Fiona Hardingham. She does have a british accent. And at times it is thick depending on the character. Her cockney accent is very good. Some people complain about her accent but I like it. She does a good job with the mens voices and she has a very nice reading voice. The narrator is the only reason I finished this book.

    I got this on amazon for free and the whispersync for 1.99. Glad I didn't spend any more than that on this poorly written book.

    "Not a bad story, but not great either"

    This book just wasn't written as well as the last few books I've read/listened to. The character development wasn't strong nor were the characters very relatable.

    Story
    "Boring Read!"
    What disappointed you about The One You Love?

    I didn't like the story or the narration. The story kept having turns that just seemed far fetched on not credible. It reminded me a game played at a social gathering where the first person makes a statement, and the subsequent individuals add the the preceding statements to compile a story. I can only recall one short chapter that held me in suspense for a very short time. I was hoping that the story was going to improve at that point, but it very quickly slipped back into the mundane experience as before.
    As for Hardingham, I wouldn't download another story narrated by her.

    "Not too impressed. Ridiculous story!"

    I won't be bothering with book 2 or 3.
    Very hard to finish and I am sorry that I did.

    "Simple Minds"

    A bit shallow and a lot of "but I don't understand". I love to listen to British accents, good narrator on Audio. Story based in London. Some unrealistic human psychology, reactions, conversation,; I mean things real people would not say or do in real life. A good mystery, it does make you try to figure it out. The ending was not what I expected.
