New Eden, Montana, is a piece of heaven on earth where one woman died in her own private hell. Now it's up to ex-court reporter Marilee Jennings to decipher the puzzle of her best friend's death. But someone has a stake in silencing her suspicion. Someone with secrets worth killing for - and the power to turn this beautiful haven into a...dark paradise.
And as Mari digs deeper beneath New Eden's picture-perfect exterior, finding the truth is suddenly no longer a matter of justice. It's her only hope of staying alive.

Very stereotypical characters which are almost amusing . Nevertheless it was a good listen and a versatile narrator. Having read a lot of T Hoag it was an interesting diversion from the usual. Worth the credit and a good length listen.
Really mediocre. I am having difficulty deciding if it is the hackneyed writing that turned me off or the overly dramatic narration and unpleasant voice of the romantic male lead. Sounds like a elderly redneck rather than a hot young cowboy. Hard to imagine the female lead would really be turned on by him. Yuck!
"Excellent suspense and plot twists"
Marilee. An everyday woman who encountered an unbelievable situation.
yes because the suspense was well developed and the character, especially the central character Marilee was well developed and you wanted her to "win" - find the answers she was looking for!
Great characters and plot twists!
"Shallow sexual exploitation"
If you are looking for a shallow story that becomes boring as the sexual play progresses through the pages, this might be for you.
I'm not sure what genre Audible assigns to this work.
This book was more a dang love story than anthing else. I might have enjoyed it more with out the 'obligatory' sex scenes.
" Was bored"
Wasted my money. wish I could return the book! weird construction and way too confusing
"The new Wild West"
I didn't like this as much as many of the books I have read by Tami Hoag. Perhaps be a use it was not so much a crime thriller a story of friends, betrayal, love, and yes, murder. It is a very good story. Just not one that grabbed me and wouldn't let go.
"moved a little slow"
moved slow at the beginning and took a while to get to the point. took longer than it should have for anybody else than the heroine to get that something was going on.
"Very hard to finish!"
Male voices were so hard to listen to. The story is long, complicated and overpopulated with minor characters that just confuse the listener. The authors use of metaphors and analogies is just over the top. I uually like Tami Hoag's stories. This one was just not worth the time.
"Love it. I hated that it had to end. "
I love her books and it was even better because I love Joyce Bean. This is one I will probably listen to again.
"I hate this narrator, and I hate the romance"
Best: It was entertaining, Least: You can tell this author is a romance novelist. The romance crap was driving me nuts. I wanted a mystery thriller, not some kind of whining, crying, sniveling, introspective crap on "the hard case around his heart hiding tenderness she could see" blah blah blah blah blah. It was repeated so often, I'm sure the book would've been half as long without it. I rolled my eyes more often than I can count. I also hated the narrator. You can tell she is a smoker, and she definitely is dehydrated bc you can hear the lack of spit smacking when she talks.
Cut out more than half of the romantic lovey dovey introspection and can-see-this-line-from-a-mile-away cheesy comments.
Get a narrator that DOESN'T SMOKE and ISN'T DEHYDRATED. She needs to drink more water, I can't stand the smacking noises her mouth makes. I had to stop midway between sentences more than once bc I couldn't take the grating on my nerves any more.
No more smoker narrators.
