Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Julie Garwood takes listeners from New Orleans' exclusive Garden District to the backwoods of Louisiana's mysterious bayou country in an unforgettable novel of passion and suspense that cuts straight to the heart.

When esteemed Justice Department attorney Theo Buchanan is struck ill at a New Orleans gala, Dr. Michelle Renard works fast to save his life. Soon, Theo finds himself in a race to save her when Michelle is targeted by a deadly crime ring. They call themselves the Sowing Club, a devious foursome driven by greed to accumulate millions in a secret bank account. Now they're dead set on silencing Michelle, who might know the secret behind the killing of one of their wives. Dodging a world-class hit man and a band of cunning criminals, Michelle and Theo walk a narrow path between passion and survival.

    Story
    "an audiobook should not need subtitles"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not so much. The narrator's cajun accent was a bit overdone and it was frustrating trying to understand her often


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    anyone who didn't need an accent, so none of the main characters


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christina Traister?

    Anyone


    Did Mercy inspire you to do anything?

    Turn off my kindle


    Any additional comments?

    The story is very good, I have a paperback copy of it that is white-spined, I have read it so often. It's a nice change from her other contemporaries, I think one of Julie Garwood's strongest. That said, the narrator made a valiant attempt at accents, which in other settings, or other media, would probably be successful. But they neglected to factor in that 75 per cent of the dialogue uses this accent where consonants are dropped, words are pronounced with weird emphasis. It came across cartoonish at times, and at others, it was annoying and difficult to understand. If I hadn't read the book previously, I would have been lost. I absolutely hate how she narrates the heroine's father's voice. I often could not understand what he was supposed to be saying with the odd accent and the weird high pitched inflection at the end of every sentence

    Story
    "Hooked on Julie Garwood & the Buchanan Series"
    Any additional comments?

    This was my 2nd Julie Garwood book, and I am totally hooked now. In fact, she has just become my Favorite author. She has such a knack for mixing the right amount of intrigue, romance & humor, to just totally suck you into the story. Even though it was a serious story line, I found myself laughing out loud often, because she knows how to mix humor into the story. I love her for that! After reading the first book, I wanted to continue on with those characters into the next book, but she didn't exactly do that. I thought I was going to be disappointed as I got into the second book, but it wasn't long until I was totally loving the new characters. She has such a way of introducing you to the characters that you can't help but loving them. Now I want her to continue on with Theo & Michelle :-)

    "Mercy Please"

    Sorry. Good story as always. Narrator did just fine until she tried Cajun accent. Have listened twice now, hoped it would get better. Really, really did not!!! Please rerecord it with different narrator. Such a disservice to author.

    "Good series"

    I like this series and enjoyed this narrator. She was spot on with her accents. I do wish there was more "love" it's kinda classed over.

    "awful fake accent! Unable to sit through the book!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know about the story, I couldn't get through the accent!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Julie Garwood? Why or why not?

    Yes, with another reader.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Just use your regular voice.

    "southern accent needs work."

    I enjoyed the story, however, the narration on the Cajun accent was not very good. I enjoyed the narrator on all other voices. Infact a good job. redo the Cajun and you have a great listen. maybe just add a slower southern accent.

    "Great Audiobook"

    Julie Garwood is a master at developing characters and plots. Suspense, mystery, and romance from beginning until end.
