Strong story, but needs a different narrator
The story was very good: it was Jane Green at her best -- creating complex, memorable characters in real life situations.
It took more turns than Promises to Keep, but it was similar to some of Green's earlier novels.
At first, I was thrilled to have Jane Green narrating her own book -- but it turned out to be a bit of a disservice to the strength of the story. The characters are American, so Jane's British accent was distracting. Also, one of the great strengths of professional narrators is their ability to change their voices slightly -- even via inflection or speed -- for different characters. This isn't a skill Green has, so I was often confused about who was speaking if i missed a word or a sentence.
It's a compelling story that loses a bit in the narration, but fans of Jane Green's work will enjoy it.
