Publisher's Summary

When you get hit by it, you will know.

Aubrey Tanner is married to her work. With her recent separation from long-time boyfriend and the town's most eligible bachelor, she definitely isn't looking for love. Working in her bakery keeps her busy, feeds her the town gossip, and pays the bills, all that she needs...At least until she finds herself under attack with no way to save herself.

You can't see it, but it takes your breath away. Tate Manning travels where the leads take him, like a tourist town with a bakery full of sugary concoctions, the sweetest of which is the owner. In the right place, he pulls her out of harm's way, allowing him to see through the town's sleepy veneer to the crime running beneath the surface. Worse, Aubrey is unknowingly in the center of it all, and he can't bear another innocent to be lost on his watch.

In that moment, love changes everything. Neither Aubrey nor Tate expects the temptation the other brings nor the complications. Aubrey must choose between the man that held her heart for years or the stranger who saves her from a bad situation. Unfortunately, Tate brings with him secrets and an agenda. How will he choose between his mission of revenge and the woman who chases away the darkness?

    "Interesting Suspenseful Romance"

    The story sucked me in and kept me interested but the narrator's voice was kind of monotone and showing little emotion. I would have enjoyed it more with a different narrator.

    The plot is pretty good and I really enjoyed the story line but Aubrey was a pretty dense character. I don't usually like heroines that are so weak and easily duped. Not sure why someone would let their ex boyfriend move in when they don't even like him. Emerson had no redeeming qualities. He was rude, inconsiderate, unaffectionate, and was always gone. On top of that, she knew he used drugs.

    Tate's story was sad and he is such a decent guy. I really liked him as a main character. He is more patient and understanding than any guy I have ever met.

    I enjoyed the HEA conclusion and the bad guys getting what they deserved.

    I'm looking forward to reading more books by this talented author. Hopefully her next heroine will be smarter & stronger.

    "Outstanding"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the story is compelling and well developed. if not for the slow voice of the narrator I would give it five stars all around. It draws you in and keeps you listening even though the narrator puts you to sleep and you have to rewind. Do not by any means listen to it while driving. Talking about distracted driving.


    What other book might you compare Derailed to and why?

    I don't think it has one. This is a good story on it's own.


    What aspect of Ann Simmons’s performance would you have changed?

    I would have changed the narrator. her voice is too soft and flowing and almost monitone to deliver this powerful book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, when Tate got the letter that inspired him to return and fulfill not only his late wife's dream but the h dream also.


    Any additional comments?

    I got this book via audiobook boom.

    I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

    There was a lot to like here. Tate, for one. He was patient, hot and devoted. The story concept and execution for another. Most of it kept me guessing, and I like that. A couple things were predictable, or rather, obvious before revealed.

    There were also things not to like. I can't say that I hated Aubrey, but she really was slow on the draw. Really. The ending happened fast considering it's weight, and the epilogue contained a lot more information than necessary, even though it was all good.

    The narrator's voice was slow and seemed a bit "old." She totally failed at the sex talk. But she definitely has good intonation, just didn't work for this book.

    I'll raise one THUMB UP!

    Weak heroine.

    "It was not my favorite audiobook"

    I was given a copy of the book in exchange for a an honest review. I expected to really enjoy the book. Unfortunately the dialogue was stilted and sounded like the author is not a native English speaker. The formality of the characters' words pulled me from the storyline frequently and many words used seemed as though they were pulled from the thesaurus. The plot was good, and with better editing, the dialogue could be also. When speaking, most people use contractions but the book's characters rarely do.

    3.5 stars

    I'm torn on this story. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It pulled me in from the start and kept me listening until the end. (despite my problems with the narration) The story was really good, engaging and interesting. At the same time the heroine annoyed me.

    Very entertaining story with a bit of mystery, a little romance and enough suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat. Even though the story was a bit predictable it didn't take away from the overall enjoyment.

    Tate was a great character. Strong, hot, immediately likable, all around decent guy.

    Aubrey was likable but she was a doormat for most of the story. The things she did or things she let herself be talked into were annoying. She needed a backbone and some sense smacked into her at times.

    It was pretty easy to figure out who Emerson was having an affair with. It just kept you on the edge of your seat waiting for Aubrey to find out. With "friends" like that who needs enemies.

    This is the first time I have listened to Ann Simmons narrate a book. While she did a good job overall there are some areas that could use a little work. She has a pleasant voice. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. The tone of the narration is very monotone or sedate especially in the beginning. A little more oomph was needed at times. I may have even liked Aubrey's character more with a bit different portrayal of her in the narration. She does add a bit more emotion into her narration of Tate's character. I don't think she is a bad narrator maybe just not the right one for this book.

    Aubrey's scene in the bathtub was hard to listen too. It was suppose to come across as sexy or passionate but it made me cringe.

    Overall I enjoyed Derailed but found Aubrey somewhat annoying. Emerson was a total jerk and I couldn't understand what she had ever seen in him. Fortunately, Tate arrived just in time, in more ways than one. He had his problems but was an honorable man and I was glad that he and Aubrey got their happy ending. The story was interesting and kept my interest throughout. It was definitely worth the listen and I would recommend Derailed.

    I was gifted this audio ARC from the author for a honest and unbiased review

    Renee Lee gives great detailed description of each character and events. The twists in her stories take you by surprise.
    I totally enjoyed the Story of Tate and Aubrey their meeting was by chance and was very symbolic. Aubrey and her Sweet Treats were just going through the motions day by day until Tate stumbled across her little bakery and then later offered his help in a dire situation. The happiness, heartache and suspense, kept me intrigued.
    It pulls you in and the unexpected twists makes it hard to stop listening.
    I recommend this book

    "modern bodice ripper"

    OK, I expected an Noir-ish novel and the first couple of chapters delivered in a promising form. But in my humble opinion the book was actually a modern day bodice ripper masquerading as a hard boiled mystery. Ann Simmons did a good job narrating Renee Lee Fisher's story. As for Fisher, I would welcome another novel knowing that she has a knack for the Noir Genre that I like.

    "Interesting storyline"
    What did you like best about Derailed? What did you like least?

    I see on Ms. Fisher's author page that she's written several books that have been generally well-received. I did enjoy parts of Derailed, and the suspense surrounding Tate's search for his wife's killer and his battle against drug traffickers was interesting. At times, though, I found Aubrey's "victim" attitude too annoying. Parents and grandparents die; such a loss shouldn't turn an intelligent, attractive woman into a doormat, but that's what Aubrey was for a large part of the book, and the losses she had suffered were part of her excuse. I also had problems with the writing style: the point of view often switched in the middle of a passage and there were a few glaring grammatical mistakes ("for Emerson and I" - please don't!!!). Tate was a nice hero, but he gave up a little too easily after the climax, running home with his tail between his legs. This review sounds negative, but I didn't completely begrudge the time I spent listening and would probably try another of Ms. Fisher's books in the future. This recording was gifted to me by the author/publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

    ".Enjoyable but not the sort of characters to adore"
    If you could sum up Derailed in three words, what would they be?

    Heartbreaking ,eye-opening ,frustrating..


    What did you like best about this story?

    Tate by far he was the best thing to happen to our female lead Aubrey and the story.I wanted to shake Aubrey sometimes and just plain slap Emerson the guy was such a jerk.I know I should be move sensitive but I felt everyone involved needed a little more spine,But I enjoyed the book regardless.


    Have you listened to any of Ann Simmons’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I haven't no but I happily would,although I felt she wasn't the right choice for this book.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Redemption of honor in love.

    Would you listen to Derailed again? Why?

    I would most definitely listen to this book again I really loved it. I was rapt up in the story right from the beginning. It was such a beautiful love story. Love at first site but fraught with so many difficulties and so much emotion and pain. In parts, it was so heartbreaking and in others, it was just beautiful in its almost painful emotional soul binding love. It is skillfully written and narrated and I think if you like weepy love stories you can't get better than this.
