Best be nimble, best be quick, I'm right here and you're my pick...The last thing Ford Elkhart remembers is walking his girlfriend back to her car. Now he's lying tied and gagged on a cold, dark floor, with only one chance to escape before he ends up like the bones surrounding him...Assistant State's Attorney Daphne Montgomery is devastated by her son's disappearance, and is immediately convinced that his kidnapping is connected to the white supremacist she's just had jailed for murder. FBI Special Agent Joseph Carter isn't so sure - especially when he learns that Ford's girlfriend is also missing. Is Ford's abduction payback for Daphne's courtroom victory? Or is he a pawn in an even more dangerous game?

The story was great the writing awful and Daphne in a southern accent horrendous, I actually felt like killing Daphne myself, it was my mistake I was looking for a crime novel but this was like romance and soft porn (yuk) if all that had been left out I would have really enjoyed the twists in the plot. Karen Rose would actually make a good Author if she just stuck to the crime but all the other stuff makes it more Mills and Boon which is ok if thats what your looking for, I was not, probably Audibles fault for putting it in that classification on their site. Lee Child she is not.
"Avoid narrator will drive you mad"
20 hr book. The usual Karen rose fare so easy listening. However, listened less than an hour and had to give up. The terrible narrator swings from whining to shouting with aggression. The difference a good narrator makes is so important, you don't realise how talented they are until you hear a bad performance.
Never never never
"Possibily not her best novel"
I have enjoyed her previous novels but this one did not quite come up to the same level possibly because I felt that the suspense in the novel and the sexual encounters were out of balance. I found myself muttering I know, I know and trying to speed through those sections, there were just too many of them and they, in the end, added nothing to the story and in some ways destroyed the pace. The two main protaganists Daphne and Joseph appear in more minor character roles in the previous novel No One Left to Tell although it would not be necessary to have read this one before Did you Miss Me? it might add something to the enjoyment.
The book starts with promise with red herrings being dragged all over the place by the real killer. It is well narrated and other people may not feel as I do.
"slow and awful sex scenes"
This is not a recommended listen. It's slow, boring, and the sex scenes are unnecessary! I thought this was a crime thriller not a mills and boon! I'm not averse to some romance/sex in a thriller but only if its well written and a small part of the plot. I rarely skip parts of books but I skipped lots of this book and didn't miss anything important.
"Did You Miss Me"
As with all of MissRose"s books I was not disappointed. It was full of twist and turns all the way through. I love the way you get to hear from characters from previous books.
"I won't miss you!"
One of my least favourite listens. I am 13 hours in and have really struggled both with the narrator and the story. I am finding it overly complicated with far to much repeated detail. I am not sure I will be able to listen until the end.
I just don't find it an easy to listen to voice. ...
The story and characters easy to follow maybe a a bit drawn out
The voice of Daphne annoying she was a strong good character with a silly wish washy voice
"A little cheesy"
Normally I love Karen Rose books, but this was just about sex. I'm not a prude but this was over excessive to the actual story :(
Nice to see the brief mention of some previous characters - a trait I have always enjoyed in her stories
A real plot twister of a book. Part of a series but the books do work as standalones. Starts right in with a kidnapping and moves fast although very long. Lots of threads to keep hold of, but the narrator was excellent.
"Did you read it"
Did I miss it, no way! read, read, read and keep reading until the book takes over your life and the only way to stop is when the battery goes flat in your audiobook reader! But plugging it in meant I could carry on and not have to wait too long to find out what happened in the end.
"Can't Escape the Past"
A female prosecutor is being threatened by members of a family in her current court case. Her son is kidnapped, but this crime appears to have more behind it than the current case; something or somebody from her past is back to get her.
