Alex Kouros's passions are making exquisite guitars and producing Greece's premier beer. At a prestigious art gallery he meets artist Cassandra Beckham. A whirlwind romance ensues, but is cut short when malicious kidnappers board the yacht they are sailing on in the turquoise waters of the Aegean. As they struggle with the malefactors Alex is shot and Cassie falls into the sea with a blow to her head. They are left for dead, and although they survive they both think the other died.

Alex blames himself and tries to drown his sorrows with his brew. Cassie washes up on a deserted beach of a tiny island.

Guitar Woman

What three words best describe Denise Kahn’s performance?

It's love at first sight, this is what you have. A romance leads to trouble on the water, and the two are separated, one not knowing who they are, the other grieving over the "death" of the other. I enjoyed this short novella, getting to know the characters and touring Greece at the same time.

Guitar Woman

Any additional comments?


A novella full of passion Alex Kouros is a guitar maker as well as a beer brewer. Quite by accident, he meets Cassie Beckham from Boston at the Athenian art gallery. She is a sculptor and also appreciates the finer things in life. They have a lovely love story. Great audiobook to listen to.

I received a free copy from the author.

I thoroughly enjoyed the audio book. I had a pleasurable experience with this. I had surgery and really wasn't able to hold my kindle so it was a joy to listen to it and not have to worry. Great storyline and characters. Definitely going to check out more of the authors works.

"More Beautiful Than Anything Around Me"

Would you consider the audio edition of Guitar Woman to be better than the print version?

The audio book as music as an introduction to each chapter, this helped set the mood of the book. The way the author brought the characters to life was magic. This is my first experience with this author and i can tell you it will not be the last!

What did you like best about this story?

The interaction between the characters, the way they communicate with one another and the way the story came to life hearing the characters voiced by the author brings all the subtle inflections of each to life in a way another narrator could simply not do.

Which character – as performed by Denise Kahn – was your favorite?

Will not and can not pick. Denise bring a unique and like-ability to her cast of characters, as well as bringing the back ground environment to life in a way I've never heard before.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and I did finish in one sitting. This book is a great listen if you like love, romance, suspense mixed in with art of guitar making and beer brewing.

Any additional comments?

This book is simply amazing. The only other thing i can say is you just have to hear it for your self. There is only so much as a review we can relay with our words with out giving to much away. Trust me you will not be disappointed with this author.

Very emotional heartbreaking smiling listen

Any additional comments?

This has a great plot that you get lost in long with some wonderful character narration. A short and two the point read/listen with no fillers. I thought it was exciting, thrilling and a little chilling at times. My heart broke when they were attacked and left for dead. At one place I was unsure if Cassie had died my heart just broke. With the next few chapters your heart breaks even more for all these two have to go through.

I have mixed feeling about this narration, while listening with headsets or through my car radio there is an echo that really takes away from the audio. When I got home and was working around the house I plugged into my speakers and did not hear the echo. I am unsure if it was the system I was using or if the narrator worked it out. I really think it needs more of a filter to take away from that noise. This was the only issue I found everything else was wonderful. I loved Ms. Kahn many different character voices they are totally wonderful and filled with emotions. You are never left guessing what each one is feeling or just how much their heart is breaking. The joy they find in each other is totally wonderful and show in the narrators voice. Her accents are outstanding, she has no trouble carrying off a male voice that sound authentic and very manly. I had no trouble picturing the scenes unfold in my mind like a movie. The performance was great excepted for the echo which really took away from the audio. The music used was soft and not over powering that you enjoy. I usually do not care for it throughout the audio but I didn’t mind this at all. I even thought it added something to the audio.

I really enjoy the story line it really pulls you in and making you a part of the story. There is danger, excitement, heartache, pain along with so much love, thrills as these two come together with love at first sight. The love scene are not over sexed but blends well, you know what is happening but you do not have it thrown at you with lots of descriptions. I do have to say I missed so much in the store why shopping I had to cut the volume down to get rid of the echo that with the noise going on around me it was hard to hear the audio. I do feel the character voice do make up for that and will give the performance a 4. I would have liked for the story to go on a little longer to see how their life turned out. The ending was very good, I really love the supporting characters. The old women just broke my heart with her story. I think she took great pleasure living through Alex’s and Cassie’s story. It was a very emotional, touching and lovely story that I truly enjoyed

A Lot Of Story In A Short Story - Great Stuff


I found this short story to be interesting, a bit complex and overall satisfying.

My only gripe is with the music. It was played to introduce each new chapter and made it hard to hear the first several lines. Instead of enhancing, it distracted this listener.

The author did a great job in both writing and performing this audiobook.

Four Stars all around and I recommend it to romances/mysteries

Notes: Sexual situation, violence

Are you an artist, too?

As she sits in a gallery in Athens, gazing at a glorious painting by one of Greece's most prestigious artists, Cassie, a sculptor from Boston, is approached and spoken to by an attractive Greek man. He is Alex, brewer and maker of guitars. He offers to show her his Greece, and gently they fall in love. But before he is able to propose, an attack parts them leaving both to rebuild their lives without the other.

Denise Kahn writes with such elegance and beauty and her books are filled with music, both in her words and in sound inserted between the text. The story is short but filled with exquisite detail, colours, tastes and a sense of place. Slow paced yet very satisfying. In a word, gorgeous. She is also the narrator of this story and she reads impeccably, perfectly matching the text, and her voicings of her male and female protagonists is clearly differentiated and appropriate. Like the honey one of her characters seperately from the comb in the latter part of the story.

I discovered the works of Ms.Kahn only recently so, when I saw Guitar Woman listed, I immediately requested it and was very fortunate to be gifted a complementary copy via F.A.F.Y. Thank you so much. Listening was like unwrapping a perfect little gift. Not for everyone, perhaps. The romance is love, not sex and there is very little violence. But if beauty and an exploration of some of the sights of Greece appeal, this is definitely a book for you.
Highly recommended.
