Extremely hard to stop listening

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, It has a very fast moving story line and is hard to put down. This is the first audio book that I've listened to that I thought would make for a good movie.

What did you like best about this story?

The story line. It was very engaging and extremely difficult to put down.

Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, not that I'm aware of.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No, the whole book was like riding a roller coaster.

Any additional comments?

The only negative comment I have for this book is the name of Jesus being used in vain. This book had very little bad language in it, for which I appreciated, I'm always amazed by the authors that seem to think that adding foul language adds to their work. It doesn't, it only serves to take away from the story and alienate future customers. There are several authors, such as Baldachi, CJ Box, etc., that write exciting thrillers without using foul language.

Wonderful Adventure

I really enjoyed this book. I wondered if I would struggle with believing the protagonist Gwendolyn could do what she was doing, but the author made it believable. The narrator did a fine job of performing the voices and really delivering the emotions the characters were feeling without beingnannoying. This was a fun escape.
