Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered how one split-second decision could change your life for ever?
The Bonners are the most powerful couple in Texas. Bode Bonner is the Republican Governor and his wife, Lindsay, is always by his side. From the outside everything looks rosy. But the Bonners are not happy. Bode is bored - he longs for more excitement in his life. Lindsay is at the end of her tether. She's had enough of Bode's womanising and of playing the dutiful wife. She is desperate to break free of her bland, wealthy lifestyle. Then Lindsay makes an impulsive decision that helps save the life of a poor Hispanic boy. From that moment on, nothing will be the same for the Bonners. Everything is about to change....
From the author of the international best sellers The Colour of Law and Accused, this is an addictively listenable novel, filled with dramatic and ingenious twists and turns, that delves deep into the dark heart of Texas.

Lots of twists and turns

Where does The Governor's Wife rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This story is a B+. It started a bit slow, but turned out to be a good listen.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There was only one good guy in the book - the doc.

What does Jeff Harding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I would listen to Jeff Harding reading the telephone directory. He makes everything a great listen.

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

A Good Listen

What did you like most about The Governor's Wife?

This is my first experience of Mark Gimenez and it was positive. I thought the book was well written, you were never quite certain how the plot would turn. It did get slightly long winded in the middle regarding the political differences betwen America and Mexico, this didn't last long however and overall, I really enjoyed the book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Governor's Wife?

Not to give anything away - for me, towards the end of the book when Bodi and Lindsey are in El Diablo's office, it was slightly far fetched that they got out of there but hey, never let reality get in the way of a good storey eh!

What about Jeff Harding’s performance did you like?

Now here is a man who has perfected his craft. I have bought a number of books Jeff Harding has narrated, his ability to use his voice to bring the characters to life is excellent.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Even the devil can't take a Texan down!

Any additional comments?

I look forward to reading more from Mr Gimenez!

Good story, well read, helps my commute.

I buy audio books to help my get through my hour each way commute. Found my self sitting in the car on my driveway to get to a point where I was happy to stop. This is the sign of a good story.
