Publisher's Summary

Dear Listener: Lindsay Foxe is a successful model in New York - a woman who hides behind a new name to protect herself from a past of betrayal and treachery and a present that becomes fraught with danger. The product of old San Francisco wealth, the daughter of a man who despises her, her life is forever changed when she is brutally assaulted by her sister’s husband, and then rejected by her family. Lindsay is finally forced to face up to her past when she meets S. C. Taylor, a tough ex-cop turned private investigator and computer troubleshooter. He is hired to protect her; but can he both win her trust and discover who is trying to kill her and why? Is it her family? A supposed friend or colleague? A faceless sicko, or perhaps a mad psychiatrist? Ah, it’s a mystery to savor.

    "Amusing Story"

    The story itself was pretty good, the writing was a bit crappy -- she needed to hang around with REAL cops or do more research to learn how to talk tough. Most of the police interaction wasn't even close to realistic but the story was amusing. Her leaping back & forward was ackwardly put, it wasn't clear exactly where you went for a paragraph or two. Expecially on the Taylor parts.

    The narrators needed to be more balanced. Renee delivered her usual great performance - Paul was too lackluster and tended to make his portion drag.

    "A Romantic Mystery!!"
    Any additional comments?

    Coulter does a great job of weaving mystery and romance into a story with a great plot and interesting characters that you love and detest.

    I really enjoyed this story that begins with a terrible betrayal of trust and leads to violence, intrigue, romance, and vindication. Teenager Lindsay Foxe has every reason to give up after horrific treatment by her brother-in-law and receiving no support from her society family. Yet, she finds the will to become a successful young lady. The story leaves the reader wondering who continues to attack Lindsay as an adult and why they will not leave her alone. Detective Taylor provides Lindsay with the support and love that she never received from her family. Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo provide excellent performances for each of the characters.

    Story
    "Interminably Tedious....."
    What disappointed you about Beyond Eden?

    I am only half way through and don't know if I can - or even want - to finish this book. The only character in this book I can stomach is Taylor - he seems to be the only normal one in the bunch. Eden/Lindsey is a completely spineless wuss! While I could feel real sympathy for her at 16....by the time she hits her 20's, I am like, really?? Find your spine and tell that crazy moranic family to go jump off the Golden Gate bridge. Yikes, she is annoying....


    Has Beyond Eden turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrators were ok - I just don't usually care for 2 narrators doing a book, it seems disjointed and often pulls you out of the story when the voices change back and forth.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger at the sheer stupidity of the main character and lack of spine. Her family is supposed to be evil - but really came across as cartoon villains. And have mercy - way too long to get the story told. Just scene after scene of this spineless woman trying to grow a set and stand up for herself. Really tedious.


    Any additional comments?

    So - maybe I'll finish it - but probably not.

    "Cruel and brutal in the beginning"
    Any additional comments?

    After four hours of this depressing tale I couldn't imagine a reason to go on. Cruelty, brutality and abuse fill the first four hours. If you are tender-hearted, I can not recommend it.

    "Excellent book"
    If you could sum up Beyond Eden in three words, what would they be?

    It's so sad that this book is really close to the truth, men shouldn't be able to get away with raping a woman, and the rape victim should never be blamed. It's a frustrating world we live in when you see the guilty get away with a crime and someone innocent will go to jail because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time.


    What three words best describe Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo ’s voice?

    I like their voices but Paul is very hard to hear at times, its very difficult to listen to this book because I have to turn the volume down a little for Renee's parts and then turn the volume all the way up for Paul and he's still hard to hear.

    "Love the story, readers were not my favorite"
    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo ?

    I have no expectations of the reading of a book to be fabulous, but when they read the characters as whiny and weak...they are not being true to the story. I actually hated that they had a male and a female reader for the parts, it was distracting. All these books are deep down about strong women overcoming some bad thing and living life with either a fear or dealing with the issue but all are strong. The performances on the last few of these I have listened to demean that character and do it a disservice by not understanding that in the way they read how they talk to others or how they would say their lines. If this was a TV show or movie, the director would not let them get away with acting the part that way so why to the narrators get to?

    I've loved reading since I found 'Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase' in my Easter basket. I've been hooked on books ever since. I was 9.

    I had read this book years ago, and it was delightful to be reacquainted with it, in an audio format.
