Publisher's Summary

Step right up and meet Jay Fields: Illusionist. Mentalist. Trickster.
I think in triangles. You think in straight lines. I show you a table and make you believe it's a chair. Smoke and mirrors, sleight of hand, misdirection. I trick and deceive. But most of all, I put on a good show.
The world thinks I killed a man, but I didn't. Bear with me. It's all a part of the plan. Revenge is what I want. I want it for me, and I want it for her. I want it for all six of us.
She doesn't remember me, but she's the reason for everything. She'll be my prize at the end of all this - if I can hold onto my willpower, that is. Maybe I'll slip up a little, have a taste, just a small one.
So go ahead and pick a card. Come inside and see the show. Look at my hands, look so closely that you can't see what's happening while you're so focused on looking. I'll be destroying your world from right here in the spotlight. You'll never see me coming until it's too late.
I've only got one heart, and after I've pulled off my grand deception, I'll hand it right to her. So, sit back, relax, and let my girl tell you our story. You're in for one hell of a ride.

The Story is wonderful, but the Narrator ruins it

Any additional comments?

I often purchase audio books to listen to after I have read a book - I get a more complete picture of the book because I hear things that I missed during reading, and vice versa.

That said, Thank heavens I read Six of Hearts first, or I'm pretty certain I would have marked this as "Did Not Finish".

At one point while listening, I honestly wondered if the narration was computer generated - it is that stilted. The narrator seems to stop to breathe at the end of every phrase as well as at every comma. She forgets to use an American accent with Jay half the time. She doesn't differentiate between voices, so you can't tell from listening who is speaking. She doesn't emote half the time, so it sounds flat and boring. I really hate to say all this, because I don't want to cause hurt feelings, but listening to this recording was just plain painful...

I truly enjoyed this story, and would highly recommend it -- but get the eBook version of Six of Hearts. Don't buy this narration.

Don't get the audible book...narrator ruins it

What did you love best about Six of Hearts?

Characters all the characters have depth.
After the story reaches that peak storyline halfway thru the book
there are still twists and turns to look forward to


What didn’t you like about Donna Kelly’s performance?

Jay Fields sounds like a high pitched 15 year old. While Matilda sounds like she is 30 something.
She would raise her voice when she was suppose to whisper
The american accent was good, until she said Darlin'... which annoyingly came out as a sarcastic sounding Dawhhhhh-lliinnn' every time.
