Publisher's Summary

Twelve years ago, Sarah Baker was abducted by the Watt Lake Killer and sexually assaulted for months before managing to escape. The killer was caught, but Sarah lost everything: her marriage, her child, and the life she loved.
Struggling with PTSD, Sarah changes her name to Olivia West and finds sanctuary working on Broken Bar Ranch. But as her scars finally begin to heal, a cop involved with her horrific case remains convinced the Watt Lake Killer is still out there. He sets a lure for the murderer, and a fresh body is discovered. Now Olivia must face the impossible - could the butcher be back, this time to finish his job?
As a frigid winter isolates the ranch, only one person can help Olivia: Cole McDonough, a ranch heir, writer, and adventurer who stirs long-dormant feelings in her. But this time, Olivia's determination to shut out her past may destroy more than her chance at love. It could cost her her life.

Confusing genres + whiney youth

At times thriller, then gore and then a little soft porn. Why too much filler/descriptive about leaves and feelings. Everything the teenage character said sounded overly whiney. Something odd happening with the audio, kept dipping into a different recording quality - which was irritating, that coupled with the whiney kid made it a mission to finish.

Simply Could Not Continue Listening!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Narration by a trained voice actress, this was flat and at times, tinny (editing issue). To me, the story was sophomoric. Descriptions of Cole's masculinity, "electricity" and hazel eyes, ad nauseum. Of course, there was immediate sexual tension between the antagonists. Perhaps I am just spoiled by Phillipa Gregory and Bianca Amato, Diana Gabaldon and Davina Porter. Seemed as if every sentence or paragraph was preceded by or contained lengthy descriptions of location, scenery, persons, etc. much of which became repetitive and distracting.

Would you ever listen to anything by Loreth Anne White again?

Probably not, however, seeing other reviews, there are many who loved this book. To each his/her own..chocolate and vanilla.

Would you be willing to try another one of Emily Sutton-Smith’s performances?

No, while her diction is good, her inflection is flat and her attempts at accents and male voices are mediocre. Again, simply an opinion.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Dark Lure?

Not having finished the book and simply persevering through the parts I did, I am unable to provide this.
