Summary

No matter how much we plan, life - and people - have a way of surprising us. For Doctor KT O’Bannon, a near-fatal tragedy derails a career and disrupts everything she thought she knew about herself and her future. Battered and nearly broken, she turns for solace to the one woman who knows her best, her ex-lover Doctor Tory King. Their unexpected reunion in Provincetown uncovers old wounds, forges new bonds, and awakens long-buried passions. While Tory’s lover Sheriff Reese Conlon struggles to uncover a deadly drug ring and Officer Bri Parker navigates the torturous path between friendship and desire, Tory and KT - and those who love them - are forced to examine the boundaries of love, friendship, and the ties that transcend time.

Raised again

I have listed to all of Radclyffe's work on audible. This is was the latest, It is the third book in the Provincetown series. I liked the first as it was all new story line, the second, I found hard to enjoy it was much a repeat, almost like the uninterested bits cut from the first and added packaged as a second novel. That's maybe a bit harsh, as its easy just to rate most of what Radclyffe creates highly. However this third one is a return to form for Radcyffe, new characters are introduced and become more of the focus, it includes intimate dark and searching moments which I enjoy. And the right amount of drama. So I was happy to read this and glad there was less focus on the continued expression of love between the main characters Troy and Bri, thats okay but for me I want to read about new things and feelings, and happy that Radcyffe added KT and a new romance to this story. Call me an old romantic, but my favorite bit in any romance novel is when a character tells another they love them, i listen to that bit over and over. Without new characters its had to have that moment, this third book allows for that. I should also say the narrator Nicol Zanzarella is fantastic and does a great job! I know its obvious, in the audio format the Narrator like an actor in a film is so critical to the medium, and is where the value add comes from. People who create audio books need to think of them as a place to add value, and not just a way to transmit something in a different format.

Start is a bit slow and not very interesting

Start is a bit slow and not very interesting, but then turn more interesting as you read.
Only thing I'm not sure about the person who reads it.

Still Good

In this, the 3rd book in the Provincetown series, we're introduced to KT O'Bannon, Tory's ex love. After suffering a career threating injury, KT went to Tory for help. Tory, understandably so, is reluctant to over KT a job. The new character in the series, Pia Torres is a rehab specialist and of course, the sparks fly when she meets KT. Tory and Reese love is still as strong as ever but is put to the test when Reese is called into active duty. The drama. A body is found in the dunes and it's up to the young recruits, Bri Parker and my girl, Allie Tremont to find the party where the drugs are being sold. Just like the first two, the story just moves along. The love between Tory and Reese is inspiring and the sex scenes are as hot as ever. Nicol Zanzarella narration is simply amazing. Her voice is so deep and well, you know. If you have immerse reading, I highly recommend reading it along with Nicol's narration. Audio or not, it's still a very good story to a great series. Enjoy

Distant Shores, Silent Thunder is Awesome!

Where does Distant Shores, Silent Thunder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Right at the top, the voice carries the compelling story of Reese, Tory and K.T. and Pia and the town of Providence Mass, And all the side characters like Bree. Caroline, Ally and Sheriff Parker. It is a well rounded book that keeps you interested and the vocal of the reader is perfect for all the parts,

What did you like best about this story?

How the book keep a carful balance between the relationship of Tory and Reese, K.T. and Pia, Tory and K.T. Bree and Ally, Bree and Caroline without letting you miss-out on the story. Some of the relationships were just friends, others lovers, others ex lovers, All complexed relationships always adding to the story.

Which character – as performed by Nicol Zanzarella – was your favorite?

Tory King sounds just like I image her sounding in my head, She is my favorite. But Nicol does a good job with all the character making a different voice for each one.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I had the time I would have loved to have sat an listened to it in one sitting but I did not have that kind of time! Anyway it was also ok to listen to in small pieces and start it back up and listen to that way, But I plan to listen to many times again, over and over.

Any additional comments?

This is some of Radcyffe's best writing: Coupled with a beautiful reading, there is no way to go wrong?

Needs a different narrator

The story is okay. The narrator tries too hard to make everything sultry and sexy. It became very annoying at times. I almost quit listening due to narration.

Brilliantly written, brilliantly performed.

The Radclyffe, Zanzarella combination is just me favourite... She brings well written characters to life and the story has a wonderful combination of slow burn and old passion among the characters. I have decided that when I die I want to go to Radclyffe's Provincetown.

Narration problem

I enjoyed the story but there was a definite problem with the narration. There was zero pause when it moved from a scene with one couple to the next scene. It was like listening to a long run on sentence.

The story is good just confusing at times when the narrator switches so abruptly. Usually there is a short pause, noise, announcing next chapter…something.

A solid story in a series that's a bit shaky.

I like this one more than the second. I feel like it has a lot of substance to it. As well as characters with a fair amount of "flaws". Room to grow without it being overly stereotypical.

Horniest women in the planet

We all love some hot sex, but these women can’t look at each other without coming.
Multiple times. If you fast forward through the sex, it’s about half as long.
