Publisher's Summary

Washington, D.C., Metro Police Detective Sergeant Sam Holland needs a big win to salvage her career - and her confidence - after a disastrous investigation. The perfect opportunity arises when Senator John O’Connor is found brutally murdered in his bed, and Sam is assigned to the case. Matters get complicated when Sam has to team up with Nick Cappuano, O’Connor’s friend and chief of staff...and the man Sam had a memorable one-night stand with years earlier. Their sexual chemistry still sizzles, and Sam has to fight to stay focused on the case. Sleeping with a material witness is another mistake she can’t afford - especially when the bodies keep piling up.

    I enjoy listening to Action Adventure books during my daily, (45 + mins) commute to work.

    "Listened to the all but the last one."
    What made the experience of listening to Fatal Affair the most enjoyable?

    It had murder, mystery, and then a little love story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nick, he just sounds like the "perfect catch."


    Have you listened to any of Felicity Munroe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I liked the presentation.


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

    Meant to be.


    Any additional comments?

    This wasn't too much into the love affair like some of the later editions. I like listening to solving the murder part better.

    Story
    "Not my kind of thrills"

    I read the description of the plot and thought it sounded promising....but it delivered very little in terms of interesting twists and good cop drama. In fact, I was amused by the very sensitive and elaborate "bodice ripper' scenes that provided the only interesting "thrills" in an otherwise pretty bland narrative. Guess I should have guessed when I saw that Harlequin was the publisher. If you are into steamy scenes and don't care much about the plot line....go for it!

    Any additional comments?

    If I wanted a sex novel, I would have gone to the romance section or gone to a porn shop. The sex scenes were over the top and did nothing for the plot or the story line.

    Story
    "Interesting story spoilt."
    What would have made Fatal Affair better?

    The story in itself was a worthy example of any murder mystery. It started superbly with a gruesome murder which set the stage for a page turning thriller. Unfortunately the relationship between the detective Sam and her former lover detracted from my enjoyment of the plot. It was so predictable, overdone and nauseating that I couldn't finish the book.
    Very disappointing and a waste of my time. Ken


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Uncertain.


    What about Felicity Munroe’s performance did you like?

    Felicity did an excellent reading. She was clear and the characters were believable/


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fatal Affair?

    I would minimize the relationship between Sam and Nick. Perhaps a brief fling and then focus on the plot.


    Any additional comments?

    No

    "good story line"
    Would you listen to Fatal Affair again? Why?

    I like a good cop story with a little romance thrown in. This book had some twists but nothing big. The story as a whole was very good.

    "Good story, disappointing production"
    What would have made Fatal Affair better?

    The production looped chapters, some chapters were repeated more than twice, which made listening to this very confusing


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story line was good


    How could the performance have been better?

    The editors should have listened to this book before releasing, maybe they would have caught the repetition of the chapters.
