Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Iris | 2/14/2014

    " Terrible book. The inital plot is O.K. but it is is not held together very well. The main character not believable and extreamly annoying. Perhaps she should have taken an anti anxiety pill instead of the wine she was consuming. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennie | 2/8/2014

    " I liked this book, but it was basically a run-of-the-mill mystery. Nothing about it really impressed me, but I didn't dislike any of it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl Karkoff | 1/23/2014

    " A woman working in a fertility clinic has a one night stand with a man who turns up dead in the morning. Fast reading, good book gets better towards the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 big hiker 2 | 1/11/2014

    " Fast page-turner and good story as well. I had a great time reading it. I thought the protagonist had guts. A fun read and my first by Kate White. I'll be back! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica Shaw | 1/10/2014

    " This is the second book I have read by Kate White, and though in the beginning I really enjoyed it, as it continued I just found myself kind of bored. There was a lot of hype with not much follow through, which was suspenseful for a while but eventually became disappointing. With that said I am still not against reading another one of her books at a later time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 1/5/2014

    " There are a lot of plates spinning in this mystery-thriller. The pace is relentless and I had a know in my stomach every tome i picked up the book. All in the space of one week, the main character's divorce takes a nasty turn, a murder is committed, the firm she's working with seems to be up to no good and she herself is being menaced by a mysterious man. Yikes! The author does a credible job of keeping the story lines straight and tying everything up pretty neatly at the end. Plus the identity of the murderer was quite a surprise. All in all, i enjoyed the book more than I thought I would. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley Clampitt | 12/17/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Naomi | 12/12/2013

    " This book was pretty good. It did keep my interest, yet there wasn't anything that really stood out for me. I haven't figured out if this is an author that I would continue to seek out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 12/6/2013

    " Really 2.5...Started nice and then just fell flat, ended very neat and tidy, maybe I had just already lost interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Milah | 11/28/2013

    " Kept me on the edge of my seat - or more accurately bed as I stayed up way too late to finish it in one day. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandi | 6/2/2013

    " I devoured it in a matter of days but mostly because it was a mindless, easy book to read. Decent storyline...a who-dun-it until the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 1/21/2013

    " Interesting, but it did seem like there were some red herrings for the sake of red herrings. Still an enjoyable read, but not entirely memorable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Autumn | 6/12/2012

    " I would actually give it 2 1/2 stars. The book captured my attention at times and was an ok mystery. Some parts I just didn't like. I felt like White left a few loose ends when the book came to a close. I know that White has written other book. Will I read them?? Probably not. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/30/2012

    " Not a bad mystery. Kept me pretty intrigued, but it wasn't anything super special or unique. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 1/21/2012

    " The usual and dependable page turning fluff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie | 8/24/2011

    " I just finished the novel Hush by Kate White. Ever since White's Bailey Wiggins series I've been a huge fan. I love the way she builds her stories and they feel like an NYC glammed up version of Nancy Drew. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noreen | 5/22/2011

    " I really enjoy Kate White's work. She's not the next Fitzgerald, but her characters are shrewd, yet believable, and the plot lines are interesting and well paced. This was an entertaining mystery and I was able to finish it in a couple of days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 5/13/2011

    " Kate White is becoming one of my favorite authors. By the third chapter of this book I was hooked. If you want a quick, fun read that will keep you guessing until the very end, then get this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 4/26/2011

    " This is a quick read. I read the entire book on the plane ride to Hawaii. I generally don't read this type of novel but this was entertaining enough. It kept me interested and wanting to know who did it.
    It's good for a beach/summer read. Nothing more, nothing less. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne-Marie | 4/8/2011

    " I really enjoy Kate White and her campy mysteries. This one was more intense than the Bailey Weggins Series. I really hope that Lake Warren shows up in more of Kate White's books "
