Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Drucilla | 2/20/2014

    " I was a little disappointed in this book. It could have been so much better. Let's start with the plot: A murder mystery, a fortune in stolen pearls, a deadly secret....all of these things should make the plot exciting. However, by the end of the book, they just don't seem that important anymore and I think it's because of the politics in the book. The book goes into detail on the pearl trade, including the countries that are major players. So much of the book is on the power struggle between the various countries. To make matters worse, the U.S. is backing China in the pearl trade and I don't know why. I'm sure it has to do with politics, but the problem is that I don't know my city politics let alone my international politics so this huge portion of the book went over my head. I don't think it was needed. Archer was another problem. We've seen the ruthless side of him before and in this book we're supposed to see other sides of him. We do get see some, but his ruthless side still came out more often than not. I just didn't connect with him like I should have. The author does go into great detail about pearls. I would compare it with the level of detail in Jade Island, but without the Chinese history to bog you down. With pearls it's mainly geographical locations and colors. There is one more thing. There are only four books in the Donovan series so that means that Justin and Lawe don't have books of their own. I wonder if the author only meant to write 4 books or if the series got canceled? If she only planned to write 4 books, I don't think she should have included the twins. "

    " interesting but a bit slow and filled with more than i ever wanted to know about pearls. well written with strong story and characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 2/14/2014

    " I enjoyed the love story but the information on pearl and the pearl farming market was very interesting. Good read but lighter fare. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 StrangeBedfellows | 2/5/2014

    " This should have been a good book -- the premise seemed very promising, and the previous Donovan books tempted us with Archer's formidable appeal. Sadly, the actuality did not live up to the anticipation. Indeed, it fell more than a little flat. Overall, this was a very mild, unsurprising story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenz | 1/18/2014

    " Really liked this book; actually kept it to re-read someday. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 1/18/2014

    " I was looking for a fast-paced mystery, something to keep me occupied on a plane flight. The story kept me interested; the author must have done extensive research on the pearl trade. This definitely made the story seem credible. But the romance part of the story read like a "Harlequin" novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elle | 1/8/2014

    " Lowell is a fantastic romance author. "

    " This is an author that I have read a lot of and have added her books to my 'keeper' book shelf. Most I have read at least twice and some even more than that. Always in depth characters that anyone can identify with on some level. "
