Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Barbara Freethy comes the first book in a new romantic suspense trilogy: Lightning Strikes. In these connected novels, a lightning strike leads to love, danger, and the unraveling of a family mystery that'll change the past and the future....
When her father's plane mysteriously disappeared in the middle of an electrical storm, Alicia Monroe became obsessed with lightning. Now a news photographer in Miami, Alicia covers local stories by day and chases storms at night. In a flash of lightning, she sees what appears to be a murder, but when she gets to the scene, there is no body - only a military tag belonging to Liliana Valdez, a woman who has been missing for over a year.
While the police use the tag to jump-start their stalled investigation, Alicia sets off on her own to find the missing woman. Her search takes her into the heart of Miami's Cuban American community where she meets the attractive but brooding Michael Cordero, who has his own demons to vanquish.
Soon Alicia and Michael are trying to save Liliana's life as well as their own, as someone will do anything to protect a dark secret....

Okay story, Great narration.

This story was okay. You really didn't know "who done it" until the very end, and I didn't guess who it was early on. So that is good. As or the romance portion I liked the characters individually well enough, but to me they didn't seem to make a great couple, it felt forced and not very genuine to me.

There was a lot of dialogue throughout and that was good. It wasn't full of filler nonsense and that was good. It just wasn't an exciting story or a page turner. The mystery portion was drug out with just small tidbits of clues until the very end.

Like I said it was an okay story but could have been better.

As for the narration, that was great. I really like Eva Kaminsky, she does a great job on the male voices and reads with emotion. She has a great reading voice too.

Great Mystery Murder series!

Any additional comments?

This was a great mystery. The questions always left behind when someone disappears can trigger the investigator within us all. If you saw two people fighting in a storm, heard a scream and in a flash they were gone-what would you do...just walk away,,,,I seriously doubt it! How about finding out the days preceding the disappearance leading you head first into an even bigger mystery....would you walk away....really?! I wouldn't! This was a fun ride trying to solve the disappearance, then another mystery with murder...found completely in another state! Good listen - and the mystery still isn't 100% solved....on to book 2!!
