Overview

Josephine Cox has a truly devoted following for whom this bestselling author can do no wrong. So it's fortunate, therefore, that she so rarely deviates from the thoroughly engrossing narratives that are her stock-in-trade. Her new book, The Beachcomber, demonstrates all her considerable virtues: a grand, sweeping narrative, colourful and evocative scene-setting and (most of all) sympathetically drawn leading characters that pull the reader inexorably into her richly wrought story.

Not one of the best books I've heard. Weak plot. Narrator was also not the best. Some of the situations were totally unrealistic.

Not this author's best effort - nor the reader's best effort.

I liked the storyline, and the reader was okay although sometimes it was hard to separate voices. I wish the author would have answered all of the questions at the end of the story.

Interesting, not too many characters and would recommend to anyone who enjoys murder mystery with just the hint of sex...Very well written and read.

My first suspense audiobook. My first Karen Robards book. Made the mistake of buying it before discovering Simply AudioBooks. The story was ordinary and predictable, might make a good summer read on paper. I didn't enjoy the narrator, Kate Forbes. She tried to change her voice for the dialogue and often got the different voices and characters confused, thus making the conversations, as well as the story, hard to follow. I wasn't impressed.

The story was good. Nice character development. Silly sweet romance with a who done it pulling it together. I did find it quite similar to "To Trust A Stanger", which I recently listened to. Also, I did not love the readers voice and found myself looking forward to the end as result of it.

The storyline was good but the narration and expressions used made it hard to enjoy the story. It felt like teenagers were talking instead of adults

Enjoyed myself! Cool book and liked the suspense. First supspense book I've heard. Romance was sexy too! I've been to Ocracoke Island many times. 45 minute ferry ride from Hatteras Island. British cemetery, cats, lighthouse, harbor, small shops, local folks.....wonderful book about a wonderful place.
