Publisher's Summary

Drew Duncan swore he’d never go back to Ember Falls again. After he was wrongfully charged with his high school girlfriend’s murder, he waited for a trial that never came. When he was released from jail a year later, he left everything behind. But when his sister is murdered, Drew is forced to return to the hometown where he and his sisters were brutalized by their alcoholic father.

Once back, not even his training as a Marine and point man for McAlister Security prepares Drew for what he must face - a surviving sister who refuses to forgive him for abandoning her, a nephew who trembles when he enters the room, and an entire town that thinks he got away with murder. To protect his nephew, Drew will face his most terrifying fear. Going home.

couldn't enjoy the book

as much as I love Audible and I do sometimes the narrator can destroy the enjoyment from the story I seriously couldn't enjoy the story because I felt like the voice of the narrator was like a computer and not human it was lacking of feelings it was very mechanic and I didn't enjoy it at all unfortunately the book itself may be interesting I don't really know because it was very difficult for me to concentrate in the story when the narrator bothered me so very much

Hate narrative, monotonous and boring

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was okay at some parts

How could the performance have been better?

Give it more energy, it seemed like narrative didn't care much about reading

Disappointing

I think I would have given this book a better rating had the performance been better. The voices of the men were horrific and made it difficult to want to continue the book. The story was ok but a little slow for my liking. I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.

WARNING! Cliffhanger ahead.

There are some great, well-drawn characters in this spellbinding mystery, however, the story really drags through the trite and tedious sex scene. But worst of all, there are many significant unfinished threads and the story ends in an annoying cliffhanger. This is a despicable practice and I cannot recommend anybook or author that perpetrates it.

Violet Anderson ultimately delivers an excellent performance. At first, her voice might seem a bit too sweet and youthful for this story, but she handles it very well, voicing each character distinctly and appropriately.

I'd give this story a much higher rating if it weren't for the overdone and unnecessary sex scene and the offensive cliffhanger ending.
