Publisher's Summary

Shelby County is home to some of the finset horseflesh and bluest blood in Kentucky. With its rural beauty and tranquil lifestyle, it is easy to see why the locals call it Paradise County. But beneath the serene exterior lies a dark underside, and an evil that threatens everyone who touches it.
Alexandra Haywood and her sister Neely have always loved Whistledown, the family's Shelby County horse farm. After their billionaire father's sudden and tragic death, Alex returns to find the family fortune in shambles, and Whistledown has to go. But Joe Welch, the sexy farm manager, refuses to cooperate.

Sparks of rage give way to a fiery attraction when Joe and Alex meet head-on. But just as a volatile passion flares between them, the discovery of a shocking murder with ties to the past rocks the county - and cuts frighteningly close to home when Joe's son Eli and Neely disappear.
Alex and Joe have only each other to rely on as they search frantically for their loved ones. What they don't know is that they are racing against time, too. Because the evil that lurks beneath the bucolic surface of Paradise County has once again raised its gruesome head - and now Alex is targeted as the next victim....

Awful from start to finish

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

Better storyline and better narration

What was most disappointing about Karen Robards’s story?

It was like a very poor famous five story with contrived sex passages, If you like a overly simplistic story that includes appearance of dead father, cat saving the day (think lassie storyline) and the most annoying voices of the characters as caricutures this is for you

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Very odd way of pausing every five words and quite monotone and an inexplicable voice for the sister - was there no one around when it was recorded to tell her how bad it sounded?

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

Disappointment that I chose the book and wasted a credit

Any additional comments?
