Publisher's Summary

When FBI agent Grayson Kincaid first encounters Olivia MacKenzie, she makes quite an impression. The beautiful, tough young attorney has stumbled into the middle of an FBI sting operation and reduced it to chaos. Months of surveillance and careful planning down the drain, Kincaid’s partner is furious and lets Olivia know that she’s ticked off the wrong guy. After all, he’s FBI.

But Olivia isn’t intimidated by his partner’s bullying because she’s something even scarier...she’s IRS.

And working for the IRS is no picnic. She’s on the trail of an elaborate Ponzi scheme, one that threatens to ruin the lives of naive and unsuspecting victims, and one she has personal reasons to be angry about. But after she asks the wrong people questions, her life is suddenly endangered. She’s accustomed to looking out for others who are weak, but being vulnerable herself makes her realize she needs help. In desperation, she calls Grayson Kincaid.

Together they join forces to fight corruption, but Olivia is also fighting the immediate and intense attraction she feels for Agent Kincaid, and that may be a battle she is bound to lose.

Critic Reviews

"As always, Ms. Garwood creates engaging characters who come alive page after page. The banter and interaction between Ellie and Max is beyond charming. Ellie is a spirited and strong heroine, and Max is charming in a stoic, gruff sort of way." ( New York Journal of Books on The Ideal Man)
"Julie Garwood creates masterpieces every time she writes a book. Indeed, she is the Rembrandt of romance novels." ( The Kansas City Star)
"Julie Garwood has become a trusted brand name in romantic fiction." ( People)

Wonderful story. Love the Pips and hope there will be follow-up stories with these lovely lady's in the future. Olivia is determined, has a wonderful sense of humor and a caring spirit. It comes through throughout this story.

Good story - narrator drove me nuts

The sing/song voice of Angela Dawe just was more than I could handle! I will not listen to another audio that she narrates !

Great!

I LOVE this author! Ms.Dawe did a good job narrating. The story was good. Romance, suspense and some sex scenes. What more could u want?! Any of Julie Garwood's books are definitely worth a credit!

Love the story but the narrator not so much

What did you love best about Sweet Talk: A Novel?

Classic Julie Garwood. I love her stories and writing style.

What didn’t you like about Angela Dawe’s performance?

I don't like the inflection at the end of every sentence. I almost gave up listening because it was very annoying. I kept listening because I had read the story and LOVED it.

Any additional comments?

If you haven't read the book and the narration discourages you from listening then buy the book and read it!
