Publisher's Summary

Meet Elizabeth Carleton, a fascinating woman who is not only a famous concert pianist, but is also married to a wealthy international business tycoon, Timothy Carleton. She is the envy of all until her perfect life falls apart literally in a heartbeat: Timothy Carleton is stabbed in the chest with an ice pick and Elizabeth is accused of his murder. Things rapidly go from bad to worse until a surprise witness appears to give her an airtight alibi. The jury finds her not guilty. The only thing is: She’s never met the man who testified on her behalf. What does he want? There is also her late husband’s family, who are out to destroy her. On top of everything else, Elizabeth is expected to take over the financial empire her husband left behind. Then three men suddenly appear in her life. Can she trust any of them? Or is one of them a murderer?

Not her best work

the plot was incredibly predictable; the narrator was monotone and sounded like he was reading right out of the book with absolutely no affectation in his voice.
Worst narrative I've ever heard.

False Interpretation

Would you try another book from Catherine Coulter and/or Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo ?

I like the author's storyline, however, it was ruined by the rote, meaningless interpretation of feelings by Paul Costanzo. His reading did not give depth to the characters as an audio book should.

What did you like best about this story?

I expected the twist to have another twist, but it delivered a good ending anyways. In the end, good triumphs over evil.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The female role was executed well. The male role left MUCH to be desired.

Any additional comments?

While the story was very good, I personally don't need nor care for explicit details between the escapades of the characters. It really adds NOTHING to the story. A warning about such material in the synopsis would be helpful.
