Thrills, chills and excitment

This is a very painful story of a woman who tried to follow the law only to have to law let her down. Years ago she fell in love with a wonderful man at least she thought he was, that is until the day she found out what he was really like. Years later tired of the abuse she got a divorce. The first visitation she had a bad feeling but she did the right thing and let her daughter go spin the weekend with her father. That was the last time she saw her daughter, many years later she is still hunting for her and her ex she has finally found them but needs help from the one person who she is afraid of. Will her fear win out or will she turn to the assassin from her past to bring her baby home.

I just love Eric G. Dove as a narrator he pulls you in with a very strong and powerful voice. His character voices are wonderful from his male to his female. He gives wonderful emotions you always know what each character is feeling. There are no background noises, no volume changes or any breaks just a clean clear and power listen. His tones are outstanding you can feel the passion, excitement as he holds you on the edge waiting to see what happens next. His normal voice is just as pleasant as his character ones. This is one of the few narrators that when you see his name you know you are in for a highly entertaining listen that will hold you spellbound through the excitement and thrills. He knows how to bring the story to life getting your attention and keeping it.

Ms. Anderson is truly an amazing author that gives you an exciting adventure in each of her books. You never know what to expect you just know it is going to be a wild ride. When Alex’s and his wife decided he needs to take this mission, knowing how it must feel to lose your child and never giving up hope to see her again. It is a race against the clock to see if he can not only complete the mission but make back alive in time for his wedding. This pulls on your heartstring when you see the child as they do their best to get her back to her mother. Things do not go as planned with some hair rising moments that leaves you holding your breath waiting to see the outcome. There was one place where I just put my head in my hands and said OMG can this get any worse. I was so sure he wouldn’t make it out alive. It is wild ride full of action, thrills and excitement that keeps you one the edge with great characters we have come to love. I really enjoyed this audio and can’t wait until the next one.

Great Novella added to this great series.

Oh I love this series. I enjoyed this novella. Glad to see Alex and Mallory finally get married. I wish they would have had the baby though..Sigh..

The story line and plot was good and I liked how fast paced it was. Not full of filler moments. Lots of dialogue throughout the entire book.

Great series by Toni Anderson.

As for the narration, well its Eric Dove so it was superb! He does such a great job on all the female voices. And his reading voice is pretty sexy. Just sayin.. Love his narrations!

Action-packed, suspenseful and romantic

Picking up a few days before the wedding of Alex Parker and Mallory Rooney (whom we first meet in Book 1 A Cold Dark Place), this wedding novella is just as action-packed, suspenseful and romantic as any of the full length books in the series.
It's a great intro to the series for first-time readers because it's packed full of the characters we meet throughout the other books. Also, while Ms Anderson often refers obliquely to incidents that are major plotlines in other books, she never gives away spoilers.
The main storyline was strong and engaging, and I loved catching up with Alex & Mallory.
Eric G Dove narrates the whole series, and his voice and tone are ideally suited to this genre.
