Publisher's Summary

The Cove is a quaint little postcard town made up only of old folk who sell the World's Greatest Ice Cream - a secret recipe that brings lots of tourists into town. Into The Cove comes Sally Brainerd, daughter of murdered Amory St. John, of Washington, D.C., seeking sanctuary, and FBI Special Agent James Quinlan, who's undercover and after her. He's got a murder to solve, and he believes she's the key. But is she really?

Kept waiting for this book to improve

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Different narrator would help this tremendously.

Has The Cove turned you off from other books in this genre?


How could the performance have been better?

I felt the narrator did not connect with the characters.

What character would you cut from The Cove?


Any additional comments?

Although the story was interesting, the story never really flowed. I never felt connected to the characters in any way.

I'm sorry... but his is bad

What disappointed you about The Cove?

I know that C Coulter has a loyal following. I've even enjoyed a book or two, but... NO.. just no. This was so poorly written and so lame. Written in the voice of "Oh John... Oh, Martha" sappy romance dime novels, but pretending to be a mystery. Characters are totally unbelievable. NO one would behave that way. Dialog was so inane and the whole plot was ridiculous, a few times I wanted to bang my head on my ipod. I know you ask, then WHY did I continue to listen? I kept hoping (call me the optimist) that at some point it would take a turn and make sense or get better, or come to a conclusion that would have justified the time already invested in listening... but NO. I'm not a literature snob. In fact, I'm rather easy to entertain. I enjoy so many genres and appreciate many different writing styes. I rarely give negative reviews, fully realizing that what we enjoy is highly subjective. But, please save your money. This book is so, so very bad. I got it on sale and if not for that, I would be calling to get my money back.

Has The Cove turned you off from other books in this genre?

The genre? What genre was this exactly? It wasn't a romance novel, and sure as heck wasn't a mystery. It had no genre... maybe a comic strip

What three words best describe Sandra Burr’s performance?

Sandra was fine. She isn't responsible for bad material. Her voicing and inflections were appropriate and she did her job.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

all of the above.

Any additional comments?

Run... save your money. Don't waste your time.Not to Coulter. Please show more respect for your readers. We deserve better from you.
