To everyone who didn't know her, dependable Taz Parker the towns EMT is strong, capable and confident. Except the fact everything about her job terrifies her, she lives in a small Wyoming town, has five sisters an overprotective father, and no prospects of dating on the horizon, considering the lack of available men in the area. Until one rainy night while transporting a patient to the next town she stumbles upon an accident. 

Jerry O'Rourke is only passing through town when he witnesses a roadside accident. When he stops to help at the grisly scene there is only so much he can do and flags down an approaching ambulance. When the pretty EMT stops to help, Jerry encounters a woman he is unable to resist. 

Even though he lives in another state, Jerry can't resist seeing Taz just one more time. But what he encounters is an unworldly young woman from a big family. He is unable to resist Taz's beauty and innocence and wonders where she has been all his life. When he sets his sights on Taz, he soon realizes the strong ties Taz has with her family could make having her far more difficult than he could have ever imagined.

Thrill of the Chase By: Lorhainne Eckhart

I bought the ebook back in September but it is so nice to listen to the story as I follow along on my ebook. This is the first book in the Parker Sisters series. If you want a good story to listen to I would say this is one.

I loved everything about this book!

Thrill of the Chase is the first book in the Parker Sisters series and I loved everything about this story. The narration by Mary Jane Conlon was fantastic and the writing by Lorhainne Eckhart was great.

I'll talk about the narration first. This is my first audiobook performed by Mary Jane Conlon and I loved her voice. I tend to be hard on female narrators as I usually find their voices just not as pleasing to my ear as a male voice. Mary Jane Conlon is one of the three or four exceptions for me so far. Her phasing was perfect, the inflections in her voice match the text and she did a good job of differentiating between all of the character's voices. I'm pleased to learn that she also narrates another one of the books in this series.

Now, I'll talk about the story. I'll say right up front that this is pretty much an insta-love story so if you hate that then this book might not be for you. I don't mind insta-love at all especially since I know a few real-life couples who ended up being married for over 40 years after knowing each other a very short time.

Jerry O'Rourke is a businessman passing through town when he stops to help at a horrible accident he witnessed. Taz is an EMT and she stops her rig, even though she was transporting someone to the hospital, to see if she can help. Neither of them expects to ever see the other again; Jerry lives in another state. When they run into each other later at a diner they both know that they want to see each other again.

There are complications with Taz's family and also some fairly funny scenes where she and Jerry get caught in a compromising position more than once. In what I think of as Lorhainne Eckhart's trademarked style, Thrill of the Chase has all of the close-knit family elements that I've found in her Friessens series. This is a great start to a new series and I'm looking forward to reading/listening to the rest of them.

I won a copy of this audiobook from the author in a giveaway but no review was requested or required. My review is voluntary and not influenced by the author.

A good beginning to the series

This story begins the series of The Parker Sisters. Sisters that are very much sheltered by their parents , especially after the oldest one left years ago with a cowboy.
This one belongs to Taz, an EMT that while on another call, she and her co-worker, come across an accident. There she finds Jerry O’Rourke , an out of towner , who had stopped to help.
The chemistry between them is immediate. They moved at the speed of lightening, and they have bumpy moments, but remember, this is fiction and anything can happen!
An audiobook for an afternoon of leisure, that leaves you wanting to know more about the rest of the girls.
