Short Romantic Suspense!

This was my first Jaclyn Hardy's book. This is the first book, and a standalone story in the Love on the Run Series. This is a wonderful romantic suspense/adventure/quest, fast-paced, action packed, captivating, and filled with twists and turns. Carlie and Branden are great characters. The narration was well done, easy to understand. Sara K. Sheckells has a great voice, with very distinguishable voices for each characters. I really enjoyed my listening. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Non stop action!

From the very beginning, this book is non stop action. All her life, Carlie has been exposed to treasure hunting, and this one necklace has become her life's search. When she finally finds it and goes to Egypt to collect it, she finds her research has been intercepted and several people are now on the move to get it. Braden is one of her colleagues, and now finding him there, she feels betrayed. Things heat up, and Braden is the one man who is helping her through and hopefully retrieving the find. But is he? Can he be trusted? This story, in Indian Jones fashion is full of car chases, gun fights and injuries. Carlie and Braden have a pull to each other that is unmistakable. But is it the danger that is drawing them together? And who is the one pulling the strings at the top? I loved this story, it's suspense, constant change of suspects and romantic element. It kept me going til the very end!

Narrated by Sara K Sheckells, the book flies by. She uses her voice talents with the many characters, including a couple of accents that are spot on! I loved her energy and can't wait for book 2!

How can an antique necklace cause trouble?

Anthropologist and professor, Carlie, is secretly carrying on the work of her deceased father and searching for rare antiquities. She is attracted to a professor in another department but the antiquities world is rather cut throat so she hides her research and does not explore the attraction. Imagine her surprise when she finally discovers the location of a necklace and meets archaeology professor, Braden, on the same flight. Braden is working undercover for an agency that is also searching for the necklace and he is expected to retrieve it. Carlie is even further surprised when Braden shows up to collect the necklace! However, neither ends up with the prize when they are ambushed, Braden is shot and the attacker takes off with the necklace. Now they are on their own in a foreign country...since their respective backers/agencies have dropped them. Can Carlie trust Braden? Lots of action...car chases, bullets flying, bad guys at every corner! Carlie and Braden will have to team up to survive and recover the necklace...they may even explore their mutual attraction, Great story that leaves you wanting more! Superb narration that keeps you engaged in this audiobook.
I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

Great Story! Great Narration!

I found this book by Jaclyn Hardy to be nonstop action! Treasure hunting has always appealed to me, and I loved this adventure of Cleopatra's Necklace. The storyline is captivating. I thought the author wrote some great twists, and liked the aspect of not knowing who to trust. The chemistry between the main characters was great. Sara K Sheckells performed this book flawlessly. I loved how she had distinguishable voices for the various characters. She really did an outstanding job with just the right emotions for each scene. This book is a standalone listen and the start of a new series. I am looking forward to listening to more books by this author and narrator.

The Chase Is On

A romantic adventure that I throughly enjoyed. This is the first time I’ve read work by this author however, I was not disappointed. The main characters Carlie and Branden are very different but provide a contrast that goes a long way to contributing to this story. Narration was very good as the voices were easily distinguishable for each character. This being no easy feat within an audible format. I’ve listened to other audios where it was difficult to ascertain which character was being represented and consequently, made the story line frustrating to follow. The voice inflection was also good as conversations illustrated the various emotions throughout the story making it easy to hold my interest. The book was short compared to my normal audios however, if you’re looking for a feel good romantic adventure- look no further.
