Publisher's Summary

An Internal Affairs investigator was murdered and his brother, Donovan Goldwyn, was framed. Now Donovan is desperate to prove his innocence. And the one person who can do that is the woman who saved him from a deadly hurricane - Beth Kennedy. From the moment their fates intertwined, passion consumed him. He wants her in his arms. More, he wants her by his side in his darkest moments.

Beth Kennedy may not know everything about Donovan, but she can’t deny what she feels for him. It’s her love for him that pushes her to do whatever she has to do to help him get justice, including putting herself in a criminal’s crosshairs.

When a tip reveals the killer's location, they travel to California, but then an earthquake of catastrophic proportions separates them. As aftershocks roll the land, Beth and Donovan have to endure dangerous conditions while trying to find their way back to one another. Will they reunite and find the killer, or will they lose everything?

My first book from this author and it was great

A story of two very different people falling in love in the midst of murder and mayhem! With Mother Nature wreaking havoc and dirty cops committing murder, this story gets off to a fast start! I was able to listen to this while commuting and it was easy to keep up with use start and stop style listening. I’m excited to try to Chrys Fey.
The narrator did a phenomenal job keeping up with the many voice changes required. Took me a bit to be able to hear the differences ( new to audio books) but once I did, I was able to immerse myself fully into the story.

I love this series!

My third read/listen from author Chrys Fey. The characters introduced in Hurricane Crimes (Disaster Crimes #1) are back in this second in series. I was given an Audible copy of Tsunami Crimes & I’d missed something in not reading book 2 in the series so I went out & bought it. Well-written romantic suspense, captivating & intriguing with well-developed characters in this longer work. I’ll be reading more in this series and look forward to the fourth book. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

More crime

This book was about a brother trying to find his brother's killer. The issue is that his brother was a cop and the killer was also a cop. He manages to drag his girlfriend along with him and get both into trouble. Throw in an earthquake and it compounds the trouble they have to deal with.

The book was well written and the narration was good.

This book was provided free of charge with the expectation of an honest review.

Action & Suspense!

Filled with intrigue, action and suspense, this is a thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat! This is the first in the series I've listened to, so I'll be listening to #1 next and then on to the rest! Then, I supposed you'll just have to write more, Chrys Fey! :)

Really well written and great narration, loved it! :)

Good Story!

Chrys Fey is a new to me author. I enjoyed this book, but felt like I was missing something by not having listened to the first book. I think I would have enjoyed this story much more if the two books were combined. Initially I was wondering why the story was starting in Florida when the cover shows what looks like the Golden Gate Bridge. Things are tied together and progress into one satisfying listen full of suspense and unexpected twists and romance. Bill Nevitt performed this book quite well and added the right emotions to the book. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I would listen to more books by this author and narrator in the future.

Listen to book one first!

I made the mistake of not listening to book one first so I was incredibly behind the entire time with this listen. It seems to start right where book one left off and it never stopped. I had to play catch up!

That's not to say this is not a good listen. It's a great listen with an interesting good guy versus bad guy, boy-meets-girl story. I couldn't appreciate much of that though since most of that happened in book one. Book two was all about redemption. The boy has the girl and they go on the hunt for the known bad guys.

I liked the narration. Both male and female main characters were warm and distinct.

There are some book series that can be stand-alone's. This one is not. Start with book one first.

Can love survive this much turmoil

They survived a hurricane, it’s after effects, and one way or another they are going to piece together the murder of Donavan’s brother Ryan. Beth knows she is in love with this man she has only known for a short time. She loves him so much she will travel to the other side of the country, weather an earthquake, multiple murder attempts to help him solve this murder and give Donavan closure, clear there names and hopefully have a life together.
Thank you Bill Nevitt for gifting me this audible book though Audible Fixation on Facebook.

crime and disaster

This listen was a real mixed bag for me. Firstly the story is good and the characters are well written and full. However I felt the story lost is purpose and was overshadowed by the romance between the main characters. Whilst I liked the romance I found the frequent sexual content a bit uncomfortable, I'm all for a good dollop of 50 shades, however whenever the main character describes/looks at/refers to his girlfriend it is always in sexual terms which I found a bit creepy. I am unsure if this feeling is created by the writing or the narration, but I had to fast forward. On the whole I would say this listen was OK with good parts...

Very cute!

Full disclosure here; I do NOT like romance books and I never listen to them. However, Bill Nevitt is such a top notch voice actor that I'm thrilled to listen to anything he narrates, so I plunged in! It was actually quite pleasant. The love story aspect was sweet, without being too syrupy! It was realistic attraction between grown ups. The thriller part of the book was also enjoyable. I especially appreciated the fact that Beth was a kick-ass female who's perfectly capable of taking care of herself. She chose to allow Donovan to help her, but it was very clear she was able to function and fight off attackers independently. The ending of Seismic Crimes leaves you hankering after book 3, which I understand is called Tsunami Crimes, (Beth and Donovan have lots of things going for them, unfortunately 'luck' isn't one of them), and as book 2 kept my interest and the third book is also narrated by Bill Nevitt, I think I'll be treating myself to it. I haven't listened to book 1, and I don't feel it impacted on my enjoyment, it was a clear story line, and anyway, it's not narrated by Bill Nevitt so I probably won't bother with it. It was nearly 8 hours of pure escapism, which I'm happy to recommend.

Not a bad story

I'm not nornally someone who likes to mix genres so was a bit dubious with this one as it mixes romance with crime/thriller, but it did work quite well together.

The romance parts aren't too rmoancy and the thriller aspect is a really good mix of intrigue and thriller.

Overall it was a great vook and very well narrated, I'll be going back to book 1 next to see if i missed anything by listening to this one first.

Romance/crime novel

This is a romance/crime novel set during natural disasters, with heavy focus on the love angle and sex scenes. I did enjoy listening to this story, although I could have done with a lot less PDA. The characters are entertaining, the storyline is flowing, and the crime aspects are quite thrilling.
This is the second book in the series and can be listened to as a standalone. (My suggestion would be to start with the first one though.)
I thought this audiobook was an easy listen, made even more enjoyable by Bill Nevitt’s narration.

Well Written, with Great Narration

This is the second book in this series and I have not read or listened to book one - would I have got more from this book if I had, it's difficult to say. Seismic Crimes begins I assume where Hurricane Crimes ends but for people like me who didn't know the story so far it does give a little background. Donovan is on a mission to try to find the second killer of his brother, and Beth is helping him, having fallen in love with him in the previous book. They are now in San Francisco when a terrible devastating earthquake occurs, the luck these two have seems to be mainly bad. Now they must fact another force of nature and try to avoid being killed by dangerous criminals.

Seismic Crimes is an action-packed story containing a little bit of everything. There's suspense, adventure, passion, and romance. The action continues to the last chapter and overall the writing style is easy to follow and flows well. The descriptive quality when the earthquake occurs is excellent making it easy for us the listener to picture the dangerous scene as it unfolds.

The narration was excellent and really added to my enjoyment of this book. I will certainly look out for both the author and the narrators work in the future.

I received this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Decent romantic thriller amidst nature's law

The story: The couple in this series, don't really have a chance, moving from one natural disaster to another, all the while being chased by, or chasing, nefarious people.
I'm not against romance books and they aren't a goto read for me, but those parts of the story, that as many people have said quite steamy, still didn't deter me from listening. I had read the first book prior to this to get an idea of the characters and therefore was used to the quite creepy start to their relationship in this book. However, it grows, very maturely.
The thriller side was very well written, with good pace, a few intense and flowing set pieces. Beth and Donovan were well-rounded characters. I was invested in their chase of the killer.
The narration: by Bill Nevitt, was excellent, kept the pace of the writing and made the intense set pieces thrilling, and read the romantic elements realistically.
A nice easy listen and will likely look out for the next book.

Mostly a good story

The underlying story of the hunt for a killer and thriller aspect was very good. I enjoyed the thriller aspect & thought the earthquake section was particularly scary as we don’t suffer these. Thankfully!
The narrator was good & kept the story going well.
I’ve lowered my stars as I’m not a big fan of sex scenes in thriller books, I tend to skim them but the scenes in this were graphic and too detailed for my personal taste. I just don’t enjoy extreme details in a thriller story, I don’t see the point. My personal opinion, I found the interaction especially at the beginning very creepy between the main characters. I think this put me off the rest of the scenes between then.
Lots have enjoyed it and that’s great. As I said my personal opinion only

enjoyable listen

This was an interesting listen with a bit of a chase and a bit of romance and 2 really likeable characters, inc a strong, feisty lady and well as a 'violet' eyed dashing man. It was an easy listen and sets you up nicely for the next in the series.
