Publisher's Summary

Former marine Maggie Riley has just set sail for the Caribbean, ready for a little R&R on her 40-foot boat before starting a work assignment in Dominica.
Then Cole Thatcher appears. Sexy, naked - and possibly nuts - Cole turns out to be an archaeologist searching for the wreckage from a World War II submarine that may hold millions in gold coins and classified documents from a powerful inner circle of the secret society Skull and Bones. Maggie has enough skeletons to deal with, but when she learns her own past may intersect the Bonesmen’s, joining Cole in the hunt for the sub may be the only course to uncover a hidden truth.

Narrator hits the wrong note

What did you love best about Circle of Bones?

I like the story very much

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

The plot was tense at times, and, this being a new author to me, I couldn't be sure the good guys and gals would survive to the final page.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Angela Dawe?

Sadly, just about anyone. The narrator started off with far too much tension so that suspense didn't have a chance to build. Her odd intonation didn't help, either.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No extreme reaction.

Any additional comments?

The second book in this series is also narrated by the same individual so I won't be purchasing it as an audiobook.

Such a Disappointment!

Full disclosure: I listened to 5 hours and couldn't go on.

I am a huge fan of Ms. Kling's Saychelle Sullivan series - huge - and expected this to be on par. The description of this book appealed to me for a long road trip; I thought my husband would enjoy the diving for sunken treasure. Five hours in, there was NO diving. The ONLY thing that happened in those 5 hours was a rising body count; and, boy howdy, did it rise! Plot development was further slowed by constantly switching back and forth between past and present, which added nothing to our understanding of just what the heck was going on. I am still asking myself if this is the same Christine Kling.

The main reason I quit after 5 hours (during a 6+-hour road trip) was this: Angela Dawe gave me a headache. As my husband described it, she was reading in all caps. I may have been able to get through the story had it not been the physically painful delivery.
