This final installment of The Callahans was a mediocre story at best. I think it would have been a good idea to listen to the other 3 books again before listening to this one. The storyline in all the Callahan books is very convoluted - so many details, so many characters, so much melodrama. For some reason, Lora Leigh didn't make Crowe a very likable character until the very end, and that got old very quickly. It's hard to have to keep reminding yourself that he's not really the jerk that he seems to be. Why do that to the "hero" of the story?
Worst of all, Julia Duvall is a HORRIBLE narrator. Her tone and inflection were really bad. Sometimes she would use a low voice for a female character and a high voice for a male character while they were actually dialoguing in the story. So confusing! And she changed pronunciation of words from one chapter to the next - why do narrators do that? I will never listen to another book that she narrates.
Anyway, I'm glad the Callahan series is over, but all 4 books could have been trimmed down quite a bit. They just seemed to drag on way too long.

What did you love best about Ultimate Sins?
I enjoyed the entire book and it was nice to see Crowe meet his daughter and find his lost love
Who was your favorite character and why?
The daughter Kimmie, what a fireball, too cute
Would you be willing to try another one of Julia Duvall’s performances?
NO, she speaks way to fast, like she was in a hurry to get done. After listening to the prior narrator which was fun to listen to I was very disappointed with Ms. Duvall's performance and wished I had purchased the book instead. Will not purchase any other audio book narrated by her
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Crowe went to Kimmie's' room and kissed Amelia and told Kimmie that daddy was there now to take care of her. When he left the room Kimmie was awake and told her mother that daddy loved her
