Really Enjoyed!

This was really really good, though I did figure out who the bad guy was early on.

Jo McDaniels is an awesome character and one I know I'd love to revisit. She is smart, brave and easily to relate to. She is an FBI Criminal Profiler and very good at what she does. She also has a hidden ability, she can sense what happened with the victims of the crime. This along with her ears of experience, makes her the go to gal for all high profile cases.

Then we have the Sheriff Austin Garrett. He isn't very happy to have the FBI called into his case but is willing to do anything to catch the killer that is decapitating victims.

I have to say that I loved the dynamics between Jo and Austin. It felt real, though a little rushed. It started off slow but got intense towards the end.

The plot was fast paced and gripping. I love a good forensics book, but when you add in Jos ability and a serial killer, then you have the makings of a great book! Thankfully, the author succeeded in making it great. Even though I had an idea of who the bad guy was, there was still enough suspicious people to keep the suspense alive throughout.

In all, a really great listen. With amazing characters and a thrilling plot, this is a must read. I really hope we see these characters again soon.

Leonor A Woodworth did an amazing job with Jo. She captured the fear and terror that she felt through the visions perfectly. She ramped up the tension when needed and really brought the book alive.

Romantic suspense at it's best!

--I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review

Anne Patrick again delivers the perfect amount of suspense and romance in Ties That Bind. From the minute it started til the very end, it will keep you guessing. I love books that contain forensics, and this one was very interesting. The mind of serial killers is always very interesting. The main character, Jo, estranged from her family is called home to work a serial murder case as an FBI profiler. She works with Sheriff Austin Garrett through 6 murders and many dinners. Jo, being a psychic is able to feel the emotions of the murder victims and murderer when touching the bodies, or going to the place where the bodies were found. While listening to this book, there were several characters I thought could have done it, but as soon as I was sure of who it was, my mind was changed! Love these kinds of stories. The romance between Austin and Jo was just enough, keeping you rooting for the couple, but wanting the case to be solved.

Leonor A Woodworth narrates this book. She always delivers a convincing portrayal. The inflection and emotions she conveys makes the narration full of life and always keeps me listening. I love her performances and always look forward to a book when I see she is the narrator.
