Engrossing

This is a new author for me. I noted she has created a story of strong female characters. Andrea Sullivan once was a Los Angeles police officer. She moved to Sedona, Arizona and went to work as a deputy sheriff. Then serial murders of college students occur. The FBI send in Agent Cameron Ross to lead the investigation.

The book is well written and fast paced. I picked up the book to read because the story was taking place in Sedona. I am very tired of serial killers and wish authors would give the topic a rest for a while. The plot twists and turns and the characters are interesting. The descriptions of scenic Sedona are great. I was disappointed that the two lead women had a lot of personal baggage, but that did not interfere with their excellent job performance. I wish an author would write about a hero who is emotionally healthy, brilliant and superb at their jobs. The book provides a good “who done it” story; but most likely I will not bother to read this author again.

The book is about 8 hours long. Abby Craden does a good job narrating the book. She is a new narrator for me. Craden is an actor, voice over artist and award winning audiobook narrator.

I Was Totally Into It

I didn't really care that much for 'Angel Fire' so I was a little leery about this one. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that I liked this work by the author much more than I did my introduction to these characters. To me Angel Fire came across as contrived but this selection had a story that seemed to flow naturally. I also liked the relationship between Andi and the sheriff; the author referred to this as a father/ daughter relationship and it 'read' that way. The who in the 'whodunit' is revealed fairly early in the narrative so there is no tension in that regard. The biggest flaw in this story; and it probably seems like a minor point to most people is the manner in which Andi reacted to Cameron's injuries after her flying leap off the cliff. Cameron had injured her ankle and Andi, an ex-LA officer and detective can't cease asking her if her ankle is okay, if she can walk on it; as if there's another option. The two of them are miles off any trail, without any other means of transportation there is nothing else to do but walk. This was after Cameron had shown her the numerous scars criss-crossing her torso, then she's worried about that a Special Ops warrior can be brought down by a sprained ankle. Cameron's ripping off her shirt to display those scars was far too melodramatic, but these are minor points I loved the book.

Love this story

Would you consider the audio edition of Devil’s Rock to be better than the print version?

Yes & no. I love to read myself but due to my disability I have to listen to audiobooks sometimes. I personally prefer to read a book and use my imagination. However I really did love this book in audio. In fact it is one of my new favourites. So I can't really say if it's better or not as i will both read the book and listen to it again & again.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The first time I read it, yes. However because I have read it more than once I knew what was going to happen. I believe if you haven't heard the story before then yes it will intrigue you.

Have you listened to any of Abby Craden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. I have quite a few books read by Abby Crayden and I LOVE her voice. This has to be one of my favourite books that she has performed. She really brought this story to life and I love the voices she gave the two main characters. All the secondary characters had their own voices too so you knew who was speaking. I could probably listen to her read the dictionary and be happy, although I am glad that she has much better options.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, the bit where Cameron was really emotional and was telling Andi about her family. And the bit where Andi found out that Cameron had read files about her past.

Any additional comments?

I love this story and am a big fan of Gerri Hills work. I have read all her books and I hope that the rest will be released on audible in the near future. Gerri Hill is a talented writer and this is one of my favourite romance/intrigue stories by her. While I prefer plain romances normally I do enjoy Gerri's intrigue books. Hunters Way will be released soon and that is a must read/listen.
Abby Crayden does an amazing job with this book and really brings the characters to life.

What’s next

Didn’t want the story to end. I kept wondering how the main characters knew each other were gay having just met moments ago. Glad they cut to the chase.

Great story

This was a great story by a wonderful author. I have read all her novels and she has not let me down yet. This is a wonderful mystery with great romance mixed in and the narration was excellent.
