I'm no prude but...
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend the book with an asterisk. I enjoyed the story and the performance but the overly detailed sex scenes and the slang used for anatomy seemed superfluous, outdated and really unnecessary to moving the story forward. There was a lot of sex and little romance; so much so that I think it would be off-putting to many.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Seeing Red?
I won't give specifics because I don't want to tip off readers to the story but there were several aha moments that weren't entirely predictable.
Which character – as performed by Victor Slezak – was your favorite?
How about my least favorite? I thought the performance on all characters was good except Trapper. His accent wasn't consistent, the delivery sporadically laconic and sometimes he sounded too much like other characters.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Probably would be more suited for a Hallmark movie Saturday afternoon.
Any additional comments?
This was my first book by Ms. Brown and I did enjoy the story but the sex took away from it--as I said in the headline I am no prude but I think the graphic descriptions and the puerile slang just made the listen uncomfortable. It wasn't sexual tension, rather graphic depiction.

not my favourite
I love Sandra Brown and have read all her books, but this was not a favorite. I struggled to finish it. I found it to be very slow. Definitely did not keep me on the edge of my seat.

Victor Slezak is the perfect reader
I'm a big fan of Sandra Brown audio books, especially when read by Victor Slezak. This story is suspenseful with some unexpected twists. The relationships between the characters is interesting. Very enjoyable.

I really like Sandra Brown, always have and I have been anxiously awaiting this book. But it was flat and just kind of blah. I knew who the bad guy was within the first 10 chapters, and it ended up being a long drawn out story with a hurry up we're done ending. And I'm all for a good sex scene but these were a little over the top, like she was trying to make up for the rest of the book being boring. Maybe it was the narrators voice or the rhythm of the production but I was very sleepy and disappointed. Doesn't mean I won't keep reading her work but this one wasn't good.

Seeing Red is a great mystery involving characters effected by a hotel bombing many years ago. It delves into the lives of a man who rescues a five year old girl and the after effects on their lives. Very in depth book.

I really enjoy Sandra Browns writing style! I've read them all and even though they are all mystery/romance, I don't feel like they plots are repetitive! She keeps coming up with new material that is believable, entertaining, and well narrated. She is a skilled writer that structures her stories to continue to unfold but carry details throughout that leave the reader in awe.
