Description

A 2015 Daphne du Maurier Award finalist from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh.

While fighting in Afghanistan, Major Grant Barrett receives devastating news: his brother and sister-in-law have been murdered in Scarlet Falls, the sleepy suburb of Grant’s youth. Emotionally scarred from war, the career soldier returns home on emergency leave to temporarily care for his orphaned nephew and niece. But when someone tries to kidnap the kids and their teenage babysitter, Grant knows it’s not a random act…and neither were the murders.

Already devastated by her neighbors’ violent deaths, Ellie Ross is shattered by the attempted abduction of her teenage daughter so she desperately turns to Grant for help. As they navigate a deadly search for the truth, they struggle with growing feelings for each other and Grant’s impending return to Afghanistan.

But time is running out. The killer is growing bolder by the hour, and Ellie and Grant must find him before the children become his next victims.

Bestselling author Melinda Leigh delivers another gritty mystery simmering with spine-tingling passion in this first Scarlet Falls novel.

Unoriginal

Despite the fact I wanted to find out "whodunit", skipping to the end would have been the only answer had I been reading the actual book. Since I was using the audio book I just let it keep running while I was painting a large room. The plot was ordinary, the characters were generic and the 'romance' was contrived. I found the love sequences so ridiculous, out of place and unnecessary that I did speed through them. Maybe it was the paint fumes, but I held on to the end for the mystery to be solved and was left with an ehhhh who cares feeling.

outstanding

What made the experience of listening to Hour of Need the most enjoyable?

It had a real nice flow and some nice twists.

What other book might you compare Hour of Need to and why?

I couldn't do that. Different in a nice original way.

What does Cris Dukehart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I was able to tell who was talking without a problem.

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

No, just very enjoyable.

Any additional comments?

Will read or listen to more.

Liked it enough to get the 2nd book and I do not read mysteries. The performance was good too.

More than an hour...

The story was very good,and I enjoyed the characters. The description of Grant Barrett gave me a very good idea of what he looked like, and I could picture him and Ellie working together side by side.

The story had some great twist and turns, and I liked how the story was all tied together in the end.

Hour of Need is the first book by Melinda Leigh I have read and the first narrated by Cris Dukehart. I thought the narrator was a little flat in the beginning of the book, but she seemed to improve as the story moved along.

Overall, I enjoyed Hour of Need, and would recommend this book.

Good book....bad narrator.

This book was a great read, but I don't enjoy the narrator. I've read another of Morgan Leigh's books and have the same criticism. Great read, but the inflection and tone of the narrator is not enjoyable.

Narrator is the worst I've ever heard!

This was the most colorless, monotone, and at times, robotic reading I've been subjected to. Rather than enhancing the writing, it did the opposite. I should have heeded the reviewer whose advice was to read this book rather than to listen to it.
