Publisher's Summary

Ashley Easton rescues a badly abused horse, deciding to return to show jumping, the passion of her youth. The animal gives unquestioned love, something lacking from her husband, Keith. But when Ashley begins to compete, she is terrified as the show course seemingly changes into an old forest and the jumps appear as real walls, fences and trees. Her thoughts spill through her head in elegant French. As she attacks the fences with an unfamiliar, fearless abandon, she begins winning every competition.

Craig Thornton, an avid horseman, happens upon Ashley's first competition, entranced as he watches her jump her horse, Injun. Mystically drawn toward each other, it's as if they knew the other...but from where? After several missed opportunities, they finally meet, becoming fast friends, their love of jumping horses a mutual bond.

Ashley seeks therapy to address a strange terror swamping her whenever she's intimate. During hypnotic regression, she's stunned to find herself in two apparent past lives, first in the 17th Century, on a fox hunt as the fearless French horsewoman who fills her head while jumping, and again, 150 years later in Philadelphia, a shipping tycoons daughter. Both times she is fulfilled by glorious romance, followed by the terror of their brutal murder while making fervid love in a forested glade!

The doctor says these are figments of her subconscious, but he's shaken, knowing the truth. He realizes those were real past lives, and their killer may be lurking again, nearby.

Ashley and Craig soon discover more than friendship. As these two newly rediscovered lovers struggle to free themselves from broken marriages, others plan to fulfill a 300 year-old legacy of death

3rd time to die

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

"A 3rd Time to Die" by George A. Bernstein is fascinating novel that blends a murder mystery with the paranormal and adds a spice of an age old romance into the mix. The story opens with two vicious murders, one in 1695 A.D. and the other in 1845 A.D.; the bodies abandoned,torn apart in a country meadow. Then the plot swings to present day when Ashley Easton saves a horse from abuse.

An unexpected read!

As the two newly rediscovered lovers struggle to free themselves from broken marriages, others plan to fulfill a 300 year-old legacy of death.

Such a good, unexpected read! Loved every minute of it!

The narrator was so good that I honestly thought there was multiple narrators. So good!

A 3rd Time to Die

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, there was so much about this book that was not even believable. The hypnosis sessions are only one example. I also did not care for the narration. Her mispronunciation of some of the words had me thinking to figure out what she was trying to say and I felt her narration of the males made them come across as weak individuals.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I liked the idea of a past life love finding each other again but this book did not do that idea justice.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Denise Kahn?

She wouldn't be at the top of my list but I might give her another try.

Any additional comments?

Keeps you wondering

I enjoyed this book. I wanted to scream at Ashley for just being so trusting and not paying attention to her lives. The story keeps you on pins and needles waiting to see what will happen next.

Not what I was expecting!

The author of this book was new to me, while I have listened to the narrator before. Denise Kahn was able to bring so much to this book with the various voices and accents of the characters in this book. She was able to change her voice so well, I thought there were multiple narrators. Typically I do not listen to books that jump around in time, but found this one to be so engrossing. The love story is captivating and thrilling. This book is part thriller, part suspense and part romance. I found it to be a perfect combination. I was provided with this review copy audiobook upon my request by the author, publisher, and/or narrator. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I do not like giving away spoilers in my reviews. I loved the ending of this book! I had not expected the killer to be revealed in the manner it was nor who it was! Very well done by the author in keeping the suspense and mystery.

History repeats itself

I loved the different concepts of the story: history tends to repeat itself, things happen in threes, and the whole idea of past lives. There were times when I found myself a bit distracted, but everything came back together for me by the end.

I had a few audio hiccups in my copy, but overall it wasn't to bad. I'm very impressed will Denise Kahn's ability to handle many different accents and different character voices.

Good writing and Interesting Story


The writing for this book is really good, and the author tells a rich story, but it just wasn't for me. I like the idea of reincarnated soul mates, but I don't like that they were married before they met each other in each life time. Plus, the main characters marry really despicable people, so I question their intelligence. One of the spouses is so in your face with their infidelities that when the main character doesn't divorce them right away, for me, it puts that character in a negative light, and makes me think they are weak. Also, why in the heck would the characters go do something that they know has been a dangerous situation for them in their past lives multiple times! It's so stupid! They don't even think to bring protection, and when the opportunity arrives to show strength, I was really disappointed in Ashley. She was completely helpless, and basically curled up to die, so yeah, I wasn't too keen on their intelligence level. Plus, it takes way too long for the story to progress. The story is interesting, and entertaining, but just not for me. I listened to the audiobook, and I've listened to many books narrated by Denise Kahn, and this was a good job for her. There were a couple of weird spliced in audio parts, but not too bad, and this is the best audio quality I've heard from Denise Kahn. So, the writing is good, and the story is entertaining, so I'm sure many would enjoy this story, but it's just not quite my type of thing.

Good book.. good narration!

Although this genre isn’t my favorite, I did like this story. I liked the premise behind the history of the lovers. I enjoyed listening. The narrator did extremely well separating the characters and in general reading and inflection.

Just kind of meh

It sounded like an interesting book, but it lost something in the translation from written to audio. Denise Kahn would be an okay narrator if she didn't have to produce a male voice. There are plenty of incredible male narrators out there, George Bernstein needs to invest the extra dollars and do team narration rather than having one normal sounding voice and one digitally lowered voice.

The premise of the story was good, but it wasn't great.

my second Denise Kahn audio

I listened to Denise Kahn's The guitar Woman a while back and gave her narration and writing five stars. Looking back at that review though, the caveat concerning distracting audio was evident. I tried to loose my self in George A. Bernstein' s A 3rd Time to Die but I was distracted by the audio. I find that the joy of an audio book is being able to loose one's self in the audio. There should be no effort. I worked with this one. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
