Publisher's Summary

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.

Overall I enjoyed the story AND the narration ~

If you could sum up If You Hear Her in three words, what would they be?

Suspenseful
Inspiring in a kick ass kind of way
Sexy


What did you like best about this story?

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.


What about Cris Dukehart’s performance did you like?

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 were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

If You Hear Her ~ it couldn't be MORE fitting!


Any additional comments?

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........

Firstly, let me say that this is NOT a complete story - you will have to download all 3 books in the trilogy to find out who dunit and, presumably, what finally happens to each of them. It's also much more Mystery/Suspense than Romance but I gave it 4 stars even though it's just not my type of listen because SW managed to weave lots of different plots, twists, sex and characters into this first Ash Trilogy book.

Worth a credit? It was a bit too 'lite' on the romance for me and I will have to listen to the other 2 in the series just to see how it ends, so that's a 3 credit investment in books that's not my preferred type.

I found it a bit dark and depressing and it just didn't leave me with the 'feel good' escapism factor at the end that I like from Romance listens (plot was kidnapping, rape, torture, murder, more murder etc etc etc) and you just can't say "ahhhhh.... nice" when it finishes - so I'd have to say No I wished I'd never started these, but if you're into Mysteries then hit the Add to Cart button, but for me - I wish there was an 'Undo' button.
