I think one of the problems I had was that this was such a short book. I find that in shorter novels, there just isnt any depth of story and things speed along at a really unrealistically rapid pace. The writing was seemingly novice, which was a surprise since I see she has several books.
The story is about Emma who witnesses her father get murdered. The man that did it sent her away to live in a safe place and took care of her financially though she didnt know that. She comes back a couple years later to find out what had happened, only to find that the killer is the respected sheriff. He isnt a bad man, but I did NOT like that whole "you must behave or I will punish you" thing he had going on. I'm not a particular fan of dominance role playing, but respect that some people do. In this story, however, it was less role playing, and more a jerk who wants control in all things, and a weak woman with daddy issues allowing herself to be controlled. The interactions often lead to sex (the words that were chosen for the sex scenes made me gag... "Cunny" for the female genitalia... really?") but the dominance in sex was secondary to his dominance in life. Abusive even. Some people may like that, just not my cup of tea.
The narrator is very VERY new I think. His reading was lilting and stilted, and seemed untrained. There is definitely potential though, he had some really wonderful qualities, I just think he needs some more training. I think this is more blamed on the editors and the director though. They should have recognized his inexperience and helped him to be more successful. I was gifted this book and said I would leave a review, I just wish I could leave a better one.

This is the first time I've read Amelia Smarts it won't be the last. I enjoyed it very much but I could put it down. It was to short for everything that was happening, it seems abit rushed.
The narration was very good.
