"Excellent! Kept me engaged throughout the book!"
The story kept me on the edge of my seat! I couldn't stop listening!
Cole and Bailey! Their propriety in relationship with each other and God were portrayed well!
I search books with Christina Moore as the narrator first, then I decide if the book's story is worth my time. She is the best!
Absolutely! I couldn't stop listening!
Historical secrets kept for years gives an exciting and mysterious angle to several deaths . Dani Pettrey is great about giving the way to salvation in Jesus without interruption of the story. A moving and good read.
This story has some really unique twists. It was more suspenseful than I thought it would be. Faith related themes were present, but more naturally presented than in some books. The voices used by the narrator seemed inconsistent with Alaskan dialects, more of a Deep South tone with some resonance differences. At times, that was distracting, but overall, well done.
I like more than just a romance novel. This had romance intertwined with mystery and suspense. It was also something I could listen to without hearing vulgarity or steamy love scenes. I'm definitely going to purchase more books from Dani Pettrey.
"Not A great listen"
The story line goes on and on about how unforgiven the girl is towards herself
It was a slow narration with not much to hold your attention
The book had great potential.
I am nine chapters in and I'm stopping now. I only got this far because I was listening while I cleaned out an old filing cabinet. The story itself might turn out to be fine. It does have some unusual features, like the setting and the diving and the fact that the female protagonist was formerly the town slut. But the writing is trite and the author insists on stating the obvious.
As an example, two characters in the search and rescue business are talking and one says to the other something like, "The NTSB -- National Transportation Safety Board -- will be here tomorrow." Okay, maybe you need to clarify the acronym for the reader. But guys who work together don't talk to one another this way. There's a more elegant way to accomplish the same end, but it has eluded this author, time and time again. Painful.
Writing this clichéd has to be hard for a narrator, but this one does the book no favors. In particular, her male voices sound strained.
