Summary

Investigating the discovery of the body, Sergeant Holly Rudd knows she’s an unwelcome presence in the close-knit community of Bamfield. But she doesn’t expect the residents to be spooked by the mere sight of her. What rattles Holly even more, though, is her overwhelming desire for diver and former Special Forces soldier Finn Carver.

Finn has no doubt that the corpse he found while diving was a victim of foul play - just as there’s no doubt that he wants Holly. Now the two will have to come together to outwit a criminal who’s already gotten away with murder.

Boringly Dissapointed

Every time (EVERY time) the "hero" and "heroine" of this story glance at one another, the plot (such as it is) comes to a dead standstill while whichever protagonist currently holds POV indulges in paragraphs of lustfilled thoughts and then more paragraphs thinking about why it's a bad idea. Over and over again to the point of being stupid.
You expect some of that in romantic suspense but Ms. Anderson manages to make it boring and repetitive instead of using it for character development and excitement. Added to her penchant for having her characters talk almost exclusively in lame cliches, it renders the book almost listenable.
Having said that over 80% of people rated this book 4 or 5 so maybe this style is not for me.

Emily Beresford was good with the delivery of the story.

Kept me listening

I love any book that makes me visualize as though I’m watching the story unfold on the big screen. This does for me.

Too much sex interruptions

Storyline for mystery was good. The sex thoughts in every other line was too much. Took away from a good mystery.

loved it

This is the first time I've listened to anything from this author. Wonderful writing.

Also the first time I've listened to this narrator. She did a fantastic job

Just so so

If you're into mystery, suspense or crime stories, don't waste your time on this one. This is nothing more than a cheap romance novel. All it needs is the shirtless rogue and ample bosommed damsel on the cover. I'm not one to give up on a book, but couldn't make it through this one.

Hard to get into

Didn’t enjoy the storyline. It was slow and uninteresting. Only made it 2 hours before I turned it off.

Not the best book I’ve listened to

The story moved right along and held my interest. My biggest issue was the narrators voicing of Finn and other male characters. They sounded like adolescent boys. Therefore it was hard for me to think of him as a hunk or get in to the romance.

I couldn’t finish it

I was turned off from the narrator. I didn’t like how she read it. Voices of the character was Ok.

From what i got through, the story seems to be interesting. I have to read the book when I have the time.

Good mystery but

The mystery portion was great! I totally didn’t see it coming. My issue with the book are the random sex scenes that came out if no where and were encryptingly vulgar. The story didn’t need them.
