Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This book actually had some depth which is a little unusual for this author I really enjoyed it. I felt like I learned something reading.It is one that I would listen to again and again. I felt like it was much better than I was expecting. I was expecting a readable but very shallow book and I actually got something that was very readable but with some depth and I would very highly recommend this one.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Matters of the Heart?
The main character's first photo session.
What does Mel Foster bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I didn't feel that this book should've been read by man. It's a woman story. I would love to have heard it read by one of the good women narrators, like CJ Critt or Barbara Rosenblatt -but not a man. It is a woman's story and it should be read by woman. I don't think that the narration did anything for the story. He'd be fine reading a John Grisham or something that is about a man, he's fine narrator.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I was moved when the character continued to go back even when things weren't the way they should be. That was a very real emotion and it was very moving.
Any additional comments?
Reading about a sociopath was very interesting I think that we meet them every day and reading this book could help us to recognize certain behaviors. I found that some of the behavior was a bit like is used by cult leaders. I believe, I've heard it called love bombing.

Would you try another book from Danielle Steel and/or Mel Foster?
Has Matters of the Heart turned you off from other books in this genre?
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
Any additional comments?
The book could be cut by at least 1/4 if Danielle Steele would quit repeating herself and stating the obvious. It did not change the story line to tell me 4 times that authors don't pay income tax in Ireland. Her writing was good enough that I understood the emotion or implication but the next sentence spelled it out as if I have no understanding of English. I don't remember her writing being so redundant but I will remember now to steer clear of Danielle Steele.

I was looking for a nice, relaxing listen, but found this book very repetitive, boring and a complete waste of time and money. I would not recommend this book, and if possible would rate it zero stars.
