"Good entertaining story but disappointing narrator"
S.L. is an automatic download for me, so I was surprised when I started listening to this book that the narrator wasn't the usual S.L. narrator Simon Prebble, however I thought I would give him a chance. I didn't like his voice and had to put it on double speed in order to listen to the book so if you can do that or just persevere with the narration then the story should not dissappoint. (play 'Sample' to listen for yourself and decide).
Great characters are involved in a dangerous plot of greed and, as Roscoe and Miranda set out to rescue her brother, they become more and more attracted to each other even tho they know their romance is doomed and cannot go anywhere, they just can't say no. It's a detective/romance as they both try to unravel the mystery of who, what and why.
Worth a credit? Despite the narration I would say Yes but please find another narrator for the next book.
"Another excellent rendering by this author"
Excellent story line and masterful reading
tough to describe only one as the mystery surrounding Roscoe is finally unveiled
Good delineation of moods and characteristics of various characters
the sadness of Roscoe's perception of self as hopeless to move on to a morre satisfying way of life
"Narration is so bad I can't listen to the book"
Bring back Simon Prebble
I love Stephanie Laurens but couldn't listen to the naration
Maybe reading the book would be better
There is a couple of reviws who don't like Matthew Brenher's narration. Obviously they are new listeners to Stephanies books as he narrates a few of her books. I have listened to better but I would not say he is on the worst scale by any means.
Awesome to have a wee crossover to the Black Cobra Quartet books, albeit a small one. I do love her books and anyone who has read them will as well.
This is a must have to any Laurens fan library.
