This is an exciting read

I have to confess to being a real Mary Burton fan and wait eagerly for her books to come out. She is an excellent writer who tells a great suspense story and this one does not disappoint. The story is solid and the characters very believable. I recommend this author to anyone who enjoys Karen Rose.

another exciting read in this series

I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole perfect Gentleman series so far. I already owned this book in Kindle form but since I love having stories read to me I jumped at the chance to buy it on Audible. co.uk. I am really looking forward to the next book in the series and hope that it is underway now.

Another great book

Where does From Sanctum with Love rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is high on my list of all time favourite books. I already own the Kindle edition of this book, but when I saw this on Audible, I could not resist. I love audio books and often buy both the Kindle and audiobook of any book I particularly like.

What other book might you compare From Sanctum with Love to, and why?

I suppose any of the books in the Masters and Mercenaries series is of comparable quality.

Which character – as performed by Ryan West – was your favourite?

Ian Taggart is far and away my most consistently favourite character though I have to say the most of the T & M crew are engaging and interesting people.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, both. The scene between Ian and Squirrel had me laughing out loud, but the conversations between Erin and Kori and Kia and Jared had me fighting back the tears.

Any additional comments?

As with all the books in this series, it leaves you wanting more. You want to know what happens with Case and Mia, Jared and Sarah and, of course, the ongoing story of the hunt for Hope McDonald. It must be challenging to maintain the high quality and intriguing stories lines over such a long series but in this series with its cast of ever-evolving plots once you are hooked you just keep waiting with bated breath for the next instalment. I would highly recommend this series to anyone who has not tried it yet, but it is highly addictive, so be warned.

excellent romantic suspense novel

I thoroughly enjoyed the second book in this series. I have enjoyed Jayne Ann krentz books for many years and she has entertained me over the years . When I need my mood lifted I still listen to some other earlier funny books and they cheer me up .

this is really good read

I thoroughly enjoyed this intriguing story. It was a very interesting plot and right to the end I wasn't sure who the murderer was. I have enjoyed this particular series and I'm looking forward to the next one. I think that anyone who enjoys Karen Rose will certainly enjoy this book.

this is an excellent read I highly recommend it

I am a fan of Rachel Grant having read her previous books but I particularly like this new series that she is writing. the characters are interesting and believable and the storyline has an unusual Twist I look forward eagerly to the next book in the series whenever that comes along.

A really good listen

Would you listen to Before the Dawn again? Why?

Yes, I plan to do just that. I enjoyed the story and the way the reader enhanced the experience, but sometimes I like to listen again because I get so caught up in the suspense you miss some of the other things going on.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the complicated plot and the way the story swings this way and that. And I like the way the characters are so believable.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The main reveal scene which I will not give away but it was exciting, and you were not sure how it would end.

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

It moved me that Dawn's reaction to her friend's death was so realistic it was very touching.

Any additional comments?

I like this author's work, and when this new series started I bought the first one on Audible, and I thoroughly enjoyed the first book. This title is the second, and it is well up to standard. I have already looked up the publication date for the next book (26 Dec 2017) and am looking forward to reading it over Christmas.

Another great story from a fabulous writer.

Would you consider the audio edition of Monster in the Closet to be better than the print version?

I have only tried the Audible edition because I prefer audio books.
The author writes wonderfully scary books.

What other book might you compare Monster in the Closet to, and why?

These books are similar the books by Mary Burton and Cynthia Eden. The all write tightly crafted thrillers with strong story lines and interesting characters and unique settings.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Many fantastic scenes in the recording. Funny ones like Holly, Dylan and Taylor in the barn. Holly is tiny but mighty. Heartbreaking things like the scene in the hospital room between Clay and Frederick but my favourite scene is between Ford and Taylor in the waiting room.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, the book is emotionally vying from funny, heartrending and scary. The scene in the barn with Holly and Dylan made me laugh, the scene in the hospital where plans are made to find the missing girls and capture the culprit.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book. It is not as dark as some of the books in this series, but that was fun to catch up with people from the other series in both Baltimore and Cincinnati.

A really enjoyable read

What made the experience of listening to Run to Ground the most enjoyable?

The whole of it. The story firstly being the most important part of course. The reader had an empathetic voice. I had just discovered another series by this author that I enjoyed, so I was keen to see if the standard transferred to the new series, it did. I am now eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Run to Ground?

The interaction between Sam-I-Am and Ju Ju after he discovers her kissing Theo. The whole relationships with the siblings and the dog, there are so many I do not know how many to catalogue.

What about Callie Beaulieu’s performance did you like?

The reader has a pleasant voice which conveys the emotions of the characters well. The narrator's voice is so important as it can make or break an audio book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I rationed myself though as I had other things to do.

Any additional comments?

I hope that the next book in this series will also be on Audible as I so enjoy listening to books this way.
