    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.

    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…

    In what world would anything like this happen?

    Take superwoman. Remove her super powers. Give her a U-haul. That's one of the main characters.
    Take a normal human. Give her the traumatic hero upbringing, and make her lucky right after disasters happen. That's the other main character.

    Also make it feel like it's written by an idyllic child, but it's actually a grown adult.

    And spend a good quarter of the time constantly dreading what could go wrong.

    This was terrible!

    I don’t know how I listened all the way through. Long before the end it felt like a chore I was determined to finish rather than an enjoyable experience. Narrator did good voices for the characters. That’s the only nice thing I have to say. She was terrible. Writing was insufferable. Don’t waste your time!

    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!

    made it 12 chapters and I am done.

    I am confused because I have read her work in the past and enjoyed it. This one is different. The reading AND the book is WAY too dramatic. You find yourself thinking "That can't be what is about to.....okay, it is."

    Sorry, but …

    … really don‘t have anything positive to say and don‘t even know where to start. With the reporter who’s live on air walking through the site of an explosion (a state capitol with apparently no police or security) while also pulling people out of the rubble (generally a save thing to do)? With the fact that she not just once bit twice rescued the same girl when she was still in college? The fact that she of course is the only one who knows what she‘s doing? Or maybe that she asked the victim of an attempted rape if she had been penetrated (yes, using those exact words) because of course she had to know right that instant (to do what exactly?) and then telling police officers that the victim had not been penetrated but they better have her checked out. 🙈🙈🙈 Seriously… I‘m sorry for being so harsh but this was hard to swallow. Had to stop listening.

    Great Start to Flat Finish

    The concept of the book was very interesting. The first part of the story really drew me in as well but then it just seemed to fall flat. I listened til the end hoping for that last minute recovery but it never came. Instead it gave a hint at some scandal in the closing minutes. Secrets Well Kept and 46 were really good books by the same author. Sadly, this book didn't live up to her other ones.
