Publisher's Summary

Beth and Donovan have come a long way from Hurricane Sabrina and the San Francisco earthquake. Now they are approaching their wedding day and anxiously waiting to promise each other a lifetime of love. The journey down the aisle isn’t smooth, though, as they receive threats from the followers of the notorious criminal, Jackson Storm. They think they’ll be safe in Hawaii, but distance can’t stop these killers. Not even a tsunami can. 

This monstrous wave is the most devastating disaster Beth has ever faced. It leaves her beaten, frightened. Is she a widow on her honeymoon? As she struggles to hold herself together and find Donovan, she’s kidnapped by Jackson's men. 

Fearing her dead, Donovan searches the rubble and shelters with no luck. The thought of her being swept out to sea is almost too much for him to bear, but the reality is much worse. She’s being used as bait to get him to fall into a deadly trap. If they live through this disaster, they may never be the same again.

Eh I tried to like it but struggled

While I haven't listened to any of the other books in this series, I decided to listen since it could be read as a stand-alone novel. I'm fond of the disaster and apocalypse type stories and can enjoy a good romance from time to time. HOWEVER blending the lines between genres can be hit or miss. I think this was more miss that hit unfortunately.

The narrator, Bill Nevitt, has a pleasant voice but when I started, and am reminded it's supposed to be a disaster type storyline, it's hard to reconcile that against how chipper and pleasant Bill's voice is. It's not convincing to me as a serious story narration. He reminds me of the voice over actor for the young children's show on Disney Jr called Puppy Dog Pals. I feel like the story could use a bit more grit. His adaptation of women's voices and cadences was hard for me to get past as well. That said, it wasn't bothersome enough to forgo the listen.

The story itself....Hmmmm. The plot was so over the top my ability to suspend disbelief was totally thwarted. I realize this falls in the Romance category but the smattering of love scenes seemed unnecessary and tedious within the context of disaster book. Too much flowery description at times in parts of the story that were inappropriate at that moment in time for my liking. Go grit, or go rom-com but smashing the two together with equal parts was just hard for me and came off cheesy at times.

The part of the story that was most compelling for me was the actual tsunami and the aftermath of the tsunami for both Donovan and Beth. I feel like the author did a good job in researching how a tsunami behaves, what a body might go through during such an event, and what a disaster area might look like after the fact.

The beginning was quick and you got to the wedding fast, but I think it was good to be that brief. The setup doesn't need to drag out too long. The events in Hawaii were supposed to be the substance of the story and it was.

The fact that Donovan and Beth have been through all these disasters and are going undercover etc just seems too far fetched for me though. I'm doubtful I'll return for any prequels or sequels.

Tsunami


Beth and Donovan are getting married but the bad guys have other plans. But when their detective friend gets the police to tighten the circle around the pair until they leave for their honeymoon all seems good and no one thinks they bad guys will follow them to Hawaii. But then a tsunami hits and Beth and Donovan get separated and they aren't even sure if the other, or the bad guy, has survived.

This is another 100 mph action book from start to end, with twists and turns all over. If you are listening to the series you will be glad to know that Bill Nevitt is back with another awesome narration of this series. I hope you all will love this series as much as I do.

Great Crime Telling

Again another great reading by Bill Nevitt, he brings to life the characters and makes them sound like it really is happening in front of you. I was on the edge listening to the story unfold I got lost in it.

This one is better than the previous one

I truly liked this one. Really suspenseful, lots of moments of great tension and emotional turmoil and a realistic way to deal with trauma and its aftermath.

The fact that Beth and Donovan were away from each other most of the book and therefore there weren't a lot of those over the top sex scenes is, indeed, a plus :P

And Bill Nevitt is, as always, fantastic narrating this story.

Action packed romantic disaster story

Disaster stalks Donovan and Beth once again in this third book in the Disaster Crimes series. While each book is a stand alone, the characters are the same and some story threads continue throughout the different books. While on honeymoon the two lovers become separated when a tsunami strikes the Hawaiian island they are on. Not only do they have to fight to survive the raging water and try to locate one another, but they also have to evade the bad guys that are hunting them. The tsunami and its aftermath were well described and absorbing and I liked the relationships formed, but it did seem a little far fetched that on an island decimated by a tidal wave, the bad guys would be unscathed and still chasing the protagonists. The narrator did a good job of distinguishing the characters and showing the fear, loss and romance in this story. It is an enjoyable, action packed disaster romance that is a bit far fetched in parts but it has likeable characters and is still very entertaining.

If They Didn’t Have Bad Luck They’d Have No Luck

I was given this free review copy audio-book at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This review is for the audio copy of Tsunami Crimes - Disaster Crimes, Book 3 by Chrys Fey and narrated by Bill Nevitt. I forgot to mention in my review of book 2 that these were action adventure stories interspersed with steamy interludes. Good fun and great entertainment, for matured persons… But oh my, what does Mother Nature have against these two?

Part 3 of an action romance

This is the third book in the disaster crimes series. I read the second, although not the first. Each story can stand alone, however the relationship of the main characters builds throughout.

While on honeymoon, Beth and Donovan must face a bad guy’s revenge in addition to a terrible tsunami. Another sultry romance packed with action. This is not your ordinary romance or action story, but an integration of both which I quite like.

The narration was, as ever, very good by Bill.

Continuing Romance and More Diaster

This is a continuation of the same two characters from books 1 and 2. Disaster stalks them. Wow, what a honeymoon. I enjoy watching the relationship change and grow as we move from novel to novel. Great characters and an exciting read. Highly recommend.

Wow!

What a honeymoon. Just when the happy couple thinks they are safe from the bad guys stalking them, mother nature rears her ugly head. A walk on the beach becomes a nightmare. Will they find their way back to each other? Were the bad guys lost in the wave?

The author has written an amazing story. She's made it seem like the reader is in the middle of the action. The Characters are real including those along the ride with the couple. Some rescued, some lost. The reader feels the anxiety waiting to meet up with loved ones or worse.

Another winner from this series. I can't wait for the next listen,

Exciting Episode

Having listened to the two earlier books I was excited to download this one ready for more in this exciting series. I have to say that this is my favorite installment of this series, so far. This was an exciting rollercoaster and if you have followed the earlier books you know that our heroes have had a lot to contend with already but in this episode, I did wonder, more than usual, if they will come out of this one.

Beth really came into her own more so than in earlier parts of this series showing us just how strong, yet vulnerable and sexy she is going so far as to be the one saving lives, even if she did need someone to save her also. She stayed strong no matter what. I really like both Beth and Donovan who seemed to be more mature in this installment.

This is definitely an emotional rollercoaster taking in highs and lows, full of action, excitement, drama, sadness, love, and loss - there is also a wedding which was lovely and brought a tear (a happy one) to my eye.

The narration by the talented Bill Nevitt really brought this exciting story to life, he has made these characters his own and endows them with such depth. I have no hesitation in recommending this series, but I feel that you do have to listen to or read these books in order to fully enjoy this series of crime thrillers full of romantic suspense.

I was given a copy of this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Tsunami Crimes

The depiction of the Tsunami disaster was good and seemed to go into some details. It wasn't a shortly written disaster like in the previous book. The moments of romance/passion didn't seem to fit within the timing of the disaster filled story, and at times was over the top and unnecessary. A common theme in this series is that some of the storyline is extremely unrealistic. For ex, Beth throws down her tiny bracelet and wedding ring in the middle of nowhere when she is kidnapped, and Donovan finds both despite the chaos of the Tsunami. The fact that they where able to find her specific tracks when they didn't know when she was kidnapped and where to start looking for her, tracking her directly to her location is so far fetched it's ridiculous.

I would consider book 3 better than the previous one just because much of the focus was on the disaster and had lots more action. Also I don't think the narrators pleasant, upbeat voice matches the violent, dangerous nature of these books. Overall this story is just ok.

I was given this book for free of my own choosing and voluntarily left this review.

"What's real and what's not?."

Better than book two of the series, Tsunami Crimes finds those two unfortunate lovers, Beth and Donovan, preparing themselves for their wedding, followed by a relaxing honeymoon in Hawaii. Rather optimistic given the ferocity with which they are being pursued. But even they were unlikely to anticipate nature's aggression and the tsunami which wretches them apart. Never go on holiday with this couple!
The lovers, frankly, are as intensely annoying as previously but the treatment of the natural disaster itself was terrifying and felt uncomfortably realistic. Narration of this book is again performed by the excellent Bill Nevitt, with pleasant voice and gentle accent, warm, well paced, and conveying both emotion and action, plus with appropriate individual character voicings. His readings are always well worth hearing

My thanks to the rights holder of Tsunami Crimes who, at my request, freely gifted me with a complimentary copy.

Rouge wave

I listened to book two and wanted to find out what happened next in the story so gave this book ago. Glad I did because I liked the book two but enjoyed this book a lot more. There was less sex scenes than the second book which was what made me give it only a three star. It is the natural disasters that I find so interesting in this series, it is so well written that the story sucks you in. The story contains very strong characters that are developing nicely with each book. I did need a tissue because certain parts of the story tugs at the heart strings. Can't wait to start the next book.
Beth and Donovan are preparing for there big day but with crank phone calls and someone trying to run Beth off the road, Beth is worried that there wedding day might not be the happy occasion she dreamt of. Donovan visits the man behind the intimidation in jail, only to find out that he has put targets on both there backs. The couple go through with the wedding and hope that a month away on there honeymoon means that the hired hit men won't be able to find them and the police would have plenty of time to round them all up. A few men track them to Hawaii and are about to take them out when a Tsunami hits the island. The warning system failed and many residents and tourist are affected. Can the couple keep there head above water?
Bill Nevitt is a very talented narrator and a great choice as the reader. He does a very good job expressing the emotion and he takes you on a roller coaster of a ride with this book.

Beth & Donovan face another Disaster

Tsunami Crimes by Chrys Fey is the third book in the Disaster Crimes series featuring Beth and Donovan. They are on their honeymoon in Hawaii and Mother-Nature has another disaster yet again for them to face. I love how the author weaves crimes into the stories of disaster. The imagery in this book is so realistic, and the story is well paced with the wedding and honeymoon added in. Bill Nevitt brings Donovan and Beth to life with his distinguishable voices. I like how each book is a standalone listen and builds more depth to the characters.

An enjoyable read

Another adventure for Beth and Donovan - but this one is on their honeymoon! One of my worst fears is being caught in a Tsunami so I found the story quite scary but the intrepid pair come out on top. An enjoyable read apart from their more intimate moments which I skipped over.

Another enjoyable romp

This is my second date with Donovan and Beth, having previously listened to book 2, Seismic Crimes. Much as I enjoy hearing about their escapades, I don't want to be friends with this couple. Everywhere they go some sort of natural disaster occurs! This was another fast paced adventure with a wedding and honeymoon thrown in. I thought the feelings expressed by both characters on their impending nuptials were very sweet; it made me try to cast my mind back to my pre-wedding emotions and hope that I'd felt the same meeting of souls, bodies and minds. Look, I'm not going to tell you that this is Shakespeare, but as a break from my usual fare of murder, mayhem, blood, guts and gore, it's a treat. The narration, by the brilliant Bill Nevitt, lifts the story to a higher level and I'm always impressed and amazed by how he manages to make Beth sound so feminine without recourse to any falsetto. All in all a super story and nearly 8 hours of pure escapism that will lift your spirits. Well worth a listen.
