The idea for the story seemed interesting and it had the potential to be, but every single emotion, thought or action of both the heroine and hero is described in agonisingly long drawn out detail, and to make matters worse repeats itself over and over and over again. I started skipping through sections the story and every time I started again there she was she describing a thought or feeling. Turned out it was a (predictable) romance story and not even a good one at that.
Would you listen to When All the Girls Have Gone again? Why?
Well, I can answer this question easily as I have already listened to it twice and I am currently reading the book.
What was one of the most memorable moments of When All the Girls Have Gone?
I can't say without spoiling the ending - sorry.
Have you listened to any of Amanda Leigh Cobb’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I found Amanda Leigh Cobb's voice very pleasant to listen to, she managed to differentiate between all the various characters so you always knew who was talking. It compares very favourably to her other performances.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes absolutely, unfortunately one has to sleep sometime.
Any additional comments?
I am a fan of Jayne Ann Krentz, having read nearly all her novels over the course of many years.She is well and truly back on form, some of her recent novels (while still good reads and ten times better then some other authors who could do with the services of a decent editor) have not been up to her normal standard. Interesting characters,great story with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end. Excellent.
The characters come to life off the pages of the story. With a mystery and romance thrown in to boot. The plot has twists and turns, keeping the reader unable to put the book down, until the final pages. Great characters and plot. Fell in love with the characters and of course the romantic suspense. Can't wait to see if there is a sequel???

Ms. Krentz has been a favorite of mine for many years, but this is not even remotely up to her standards. I actually went back to look at the copyright; I thought perhaps it was one of her first efforts and had been re-released. The characters are dull; the dialogue is boring, and there's no chemistry between the heroine and hero. I'd recommend any of her other books over this one.
