    Description

    When local television news anchor Katherine Kyle is thrust into the national spotlight, it sets in motion a chain of events that will change her life forever.

    Jamison "Jay" Parker is an intensely career-driven Time magazine reporter; she has experienced love once, from afar, and given up on finding it again.... That is until circumstance and an assignment bring her into contact with her past.

    Kate and Jay's lives intertwine, leading them on a journey to love and happiness - until fate and fame threaten to tear them apart. What is the price of fame? For Kate the cost just might be everything. For Jay the price could be the other half of her soul.

    Commentaires

    "Ames, much feted for her lesbian mysteries and romances, adds another to her record of successful storytelling. Narrator Emily Beresford provides a fully voiced performance of the two featured women. Kate and Jay first met during a skiing accident when Jay was in college. Now, a few years later, they're meeting again as Kate, a TV journalist, reports live from a state capitol bombing. The crush Jay felt that first time is still much alive, and Kate, happily, is feeling romantic now, too. Beresford effectively differentiates the two principals, as well as the wide range of secondary characters, by varying pitch and tone. Her pacing fits each scene, whether one of tenderness or camera-rolling chaos during news reporting. The first of a series, this audiobook, and its team of Kate and Jay, should find a welcome audience." ( AudioFile Magazine)

    Intriguing and interesting st

    For a 2010 copyright there were some head scratching things like using the words "word processors " instead of computer or laptop, and a lack of cell phones and texting, but the presence of answering machines etc. I don't know why but I kept thinking this story must have sat on the shelf for a while.

    I enjoyed the story, and a pretty rich background that was provided for each of the characters. There was enough adventure, but trail of every day life in an interesting way, and drama. I do at some point think I will get my fill of the knight in shining armor and rescued princess but perhaps book two will even things up a bit.

    I am looking forward to more of these women

    good at first then got boring

    Would you try another book from Lynn Ames and/or Emily Beresford?

    I would hoping book 2 is better. I have to think if I would give it a chance.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Lynn Ames again?

    So far no. Have to think about it.

    Which character – as performed by Emily Beresford – was your favorite?

    The dog. Jay cried to much and I thought Kate was stronger then she went weak, so the dog.

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

    Disappointment.

    Any additional comments?

    Nothing to say.

    If you enjoy hiding in the closet, this is for you

    The story of these two people might have been titillating in the 1930's but not in the 1980's. I lived through the 1980's, and we didn't run and hide then. This book should have been used for a Shirley Temple movie.

    Hard to believe.....I know it's a book, but...

    I liked this book ok, but several parts of it were hard to believe and at the same time predictable. I might give book 2 a try to see if I'm just not getting the full picture and giving it a fair chance.

    Wish this Book had a different narrator

    I absolutely LOVE this Book. I've read it and wanted to listen to the audio version since I commute to work. Lynn Ames is a favorite author of mine. The only thing that kept me from finishing the audio version is the narrator. I'm sure it was meant well but, the way she quotes the characters is very uppity (for lack of a better word) or over the top. I'm so happy I've read this book so that I know how amazing this story is. Lynn Ames will always be a favorite!

    Too sappy…couldn’t finish it

    It started out really well and then got really sappy and it was hard to listen without rolling my eyes. Gave up half way through…

    Nope nope

    Listening to the narrator made it hard for me to breathe. I even slowed the speed down. I couldn't continue. I like stories that are exciting but not narrated by someone overly caffeinated. Disappointed.

    Meh

    The book is predictable and boring and the narration is horrible. I wanted to like it but didn't. I listened to the end hoping it would get better but it didn't.
