The scream Lena Riddle hears in the woods behind her house is enough to curdle her blood-she has no doubt that a woman is in real danger. Unfortunately, with no physical evidence, the local law officers in small-town Ash, Kentucky, dismiss her claim. But Lena knows what she heard-and it leaves her filled with fear and frustration.Ezra King is on leave from the state police, but he can't escape the guilty memories that haunt his dreams. When he sees Lena, he is immediately drawn to her. He aches to touch her-to be touched by her-but is he too burdened by his tragic past to get close? When Ezra hears her story of an unknown woman's screams, his instincts tell him that Lena's life is also at risk-and his desire to protect her is as fierce as his need to possess her.More

Overall I enjoyed the story AND the narration ~
Inspiring in a kick ass kind of way
I loved the heroine, Lena. She is blind, but she hasn't let that stand in her way ~ she's a college graduate, she's a chef, she lives alone w/ only her dog for a companion ~ she's a succesfull, confident, competent woman who doesn't let her lack of sight slow her down for a second.
I really enjoyed her narration ~ first time I've listened to her, so was really impressed w/ her pacing, the life she brought to the characters ~ it was obvious she'd read the book before hand and knew how each sentence was to come across, whether it was Lena being pissed or spunky, or Ezra being sad or having flashbacks. She did a really good job of keeping the voices seperate, and the SAME tone/inflection for each character.
If You Hear Her ~ it couldn't be MORE fitting!
OK ~~ couple of things. First, this book ends on a MAJOR cliff hanger. So you HAVE to buy the next book ~ which I will, but it's not available in audio yet, lol. Wish I'd known this going in, I'd probably have waited. 2nd...I liked the story, I liked the characters, but I did feel like it wandered some. And AGAIN I mention cliff hangerS ~ yup, there are really several.
All in all, I enjoyed the book, couldn't stop listening because she TOTALLY hooked me into the plot ~ I'd recommend it to anyone who loves suspense. It had a great romance in it, too, but didn't really feel that was the center of the story. She's got me invested in the characters to degree that there is NO way I won't buy the next 2 books when become availalbe.
Clever plot but beware........
