Story is better than the synopsis

I really enjoyed this story in the series.
I loved Bess it's nice to have an unusual looking lead lady with a big character.
I liked Alex better than I imagined I would, having listened to some of the other stories I had a preconceived idea and that was turned about.
Although I think the narrator is good, I would be more engaged with each story if i heard some different voices narrate; as when you listen to the series they become a bit similar.

Loved it!

This was a very enjoyable and fun book! It is the 4th book of the series, which I recommend - especially if you enjoy Nora Roberts. (Note: this series is in the romance novel genre, which I only mention because she also writes romantic suspense / mystery novels, futuristic novels, fantasy and many other types of novels, novellas, etc.). I love the characters in this entire series and have been really enjoying their individual journeys.

Recommended

I have read this story countless times. Actually this whole series. It is one of my favorite, probably because each story in it is so unique and yet fits in just right. When it comes dowb to it, each story goes back to the core, the value of a strong loving family.

I'm glad Ms. Roberts had Rachels story before Alex. This is one of those times when even as the story stands on its own, the information from Rachel's makes it so much richer. The reader really gets a sense of who Alex is in that story. This then creates an excitment for Alexi.

This is an excelent story for anyone 14+ and mature. I say this because of the mild sexual content and also the police case which is a big factor in the story.

Convincing Alex

Nora Roberts tales are so wonderful. I have read this story many times over the years and love the characters. For the most part I enjoyed the reading - the narrators voice gets on my nerves when she tries different accents - but I survived.
