Publisher's Summary

A novel of peril and passion from number-one New York Times best-selling author Nora Roberts.

The last thing NYPD Sergeant James "Slade" Sladerman needs is to babysit a spoiled heiress. But Jessica Winslow's antiques shop is suspected of being used by an international smuggling ring, and Slade is being sent undercover to investigate - and keep Jessica out of trouble.

The woman Slade meets isn't what he expected. And neither is the desire that springs up between them….

Worst Norah Roberts novel I've ever read

I've read more of Norah Roberts novels than I can count because even though they're formulaic, they are easy entertainment after reading something much weightier like a glass of water to cleanse the pallet between wines. This novel, however, was so bad I was shocked. The plot was so weak that she plugged in repetitive love scenes throughout, and they quickly became tiresome.

weak characters

I adore Nora Roberts as an author, but this one was a swing and a miss.

Hard Headed Woman

I really wanted to give this Jessica a kick in the pant's. I have little patience with someone who dives in when not needed. If this book had been real life. She would have ended up getting both of herself and the cop killed. Do I find her brave and heroic? No I find her hard headed and a know it all. Sorry Ms. Roberts I didn't particularly like this female lead. Like I usually do with your other female leads. Also sorry Mr. Podehl but your female voice was a little much. On the other hand your Male voices were very good. Think this would be better with you and a female narrator.

Engaging Story

Loved the storyline. Nora's heroine's energy seemed boundless. The leading man was a typical male (you'll find out girls), with lots of guess what: testosterone. Nicely written. Nick Podehl gives a very fine performance. Think you'll enjoy it.

Good one

This is an older book that I had read before but was still enjoyable to listen to. Takes a little while to get used to not having the modern technology available.

Another great listen by Nora

Would you listen to A Matter of Choice again? Why?

Yes, it has such a good story line and you can really relate to it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I'm tore, but Slade would be it

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

Yes, it the changing of the tones in the voice. Not monotone

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Just a little more excitement in the voice would be great.
