Publisher's Summary

The Guardian: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!

Julie Barenson's young husband left her two unexpected gifts before he died - a Great Dane puppy named Singer and the promise that he would always be watching over her. Now four years have passed. Still living in the small town of Swansboro, North Carolina, 29-year-old Julie is emotionally ready to make a commitment to someone again. But who? Should it be Richard Franklin, the handsome, sophisticated engineer who treats her like a queen? Or Mike Harris, the down-to-earth nice guy who was her husband's best friend? Choosing one of them should bring her more happiness than she's had in years. Instead Julie is soon fighting for her life in a nightmare spawned by a chilling deception and jealousy so poisonous that it has become a murderous desire....

Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration and complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so that listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

    "Tears!"

    Suspense and tears. If you've ever been stalked, too real of a story to handle!

    "Sad ending"

    As usual, Nicholas Sparks give us a lot of emotions on his writings and this one is not the exception. Happiness, fidelity and loyalty from Singer (her dog), intrigue, suspense and a sweet and sour end you will find it here. Don't read if you are down or sad or thru a bad moment.
    Regards the audio, the narrator was good, great pronunciation (considering English is not my first language) and keeping a good tone according to emotions/situations of the moment.
    A plus: background sounds!
    Thanks again for a nice book and make my driving entertained.

    "Good story distracting narration"

    This is my favorite Nicholas Sparks book, and I was a bit disappointed. I found the background audio tracks distracting and unnecessary. Also I would have preferred a less dramatic reading, the narration would have been stronger without the over the top character voices.

    "No cheesy music"

    I like a lot of Nicholas Sparks audio books but I can't stand the cheesy music and it started right at the first.

    "Slow start but wasn't let down!"

    I have been an avid listener for a while now & books have to grab me early or I lose interest quickly. I almost gave up on this book because of it's slow start but then the tides changed after the first few chapters & I couldn't stop listening. Glad I kept listening!!!

    "Very disapppointing."

    This novel was so disappointing. I have loved all of the books that I have read by Nicholas Sparks until I read this one. It was incredibly predictable from the get-go. Yes, most of his books are predictable, but this one was so bad that I just had the hardest time getting through it.
