Publisher's Summary

Lindsey Hilliard flees her charmed life in New York, searching for answers after her fiancé's betrayal fills her with self-doubt. Unfortunately, her rented Malibu home is next door to Levi Hardy, the sexy but insufferable man who humiliated her years ago.

Hardened by a grim past he keeps concealed, Levi prefers maintaining a comfortable distance from folks, especially a nosy princess like Lindsey. But then a motorcycle collision brings him to his knees, forcing him to accept her assistance with his recovery. Sparks begin to fly when the woman who doesn't believe in herself teaches the cynic how to have faith in others. Levi realizes his body will recover, but his heart won't if Lindsey returns to the ex who wants her back.

In the biggest gamble of his life, Levi teaches her to trust her own voice, and hopes she'll use it to say good-bye to her past and hello to a future with him.

    Story
    "Good premise"

    I like Amy Rubinate and that was one reason I ordered this book, the trouble for me was the narration. When I read that there are two narrators (man and woman) I expect the man to read the man's narration and the woman to read the woman's narration, that is not what happened with this book. In this book, every other chapter was in the person of one of the characters and the narrator read the entire chapter. It took a lot away from the story, in my opinion.

    Other than that, it was a pretty good story, with a unique premise. I think I would like it much better if I had read the book and if the story moved along a little more quickly.

    "Horrible Female Narration"

    Jamie is a fabulous writer. Please give her other books a listen you will not be disappointed.

    The female narrator ruined this experience for me. Buy the paperback.

    "Wonderful Story but unrealistic female narrator."
    Would you consider the audio edition of In the Cards to be better than the print version?

    I heard of the audio version after reading the book. The male narrator for Levi was southern and enjoyable enough to really embrace his character. The narrator for Lindsey was more nasal and sounded midwestern rather than from Connecticut. I didn't enjoy her whiny tone as I didn't view Lindsey quite as whiny while reading the book first. Embracing the opportunity to hear a version of


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Levi was my favorite with the narration. He was a sweet, struggling character who made amazing transformation throughout the book. I love how he really was clear with his actions and intentions. Levi could be trusted.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Amy Rubinate and Will Damron ?

    I would pick Will over Amy, although I would be willing to give her a chance as another character from the midwest. She needed to work on her "yankee" dialect.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The journey of discovering who you are in the fullest potential can be challenging, but absolutely worth it.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this author after discovering this book. I have since signed up to follow her on facebook and have pre-ordered her next book.

    "Great Book ... narration, only average."
    What made the experience of listening to In the Cards the most enjoyable?

    The story is perfect! It's contemporary romance but with quite an interesting premise that sets it apart from others in the genre.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't really like male narrators and male narrators doing female voices make me gag. Amy Rubinate was great. Will Damron I struggled with. The book is told from alternate POVs with both narrators doing both male and female voices. Might have been better if they had Amy doing all the dialogue for Lindsey and Will doing all the dialogue for Levi. With the narration handled by both of them depending on whose POV it was at the time.

    "great story. the narrators were an aquired taste"

    I really liked the story, but had to adjust to the narrators. almost stopped listening in the beginning, but over time they grew on me. At first was really excited about 2 narrators, but think there was a missed opportunity to use that to their full advantage

    "Female narrator ruined this for me"

    Great story, wonderful narration by Will Damon, however the female narrator had such affected, diphthong-heavy delivery that I just could not enjoy this well-crafted story as I had hoped to. I don't expect regional accents to be perfect, but for a character that is supposed to sound like society girl from the east coast to sound like an childish teenaged Valley Girl, it completely took me out of the story. Will avoid this female narrator in the future.

    "Wonderful Story"

    In the Cards is a wonderful story about the tenacity of love and the journey of finding oneself, a journey taken by men and women alike.

    Overall I give this novel 5 stars - the whole package was a great find.

    The narration for this audio performance was top-notch. Amy Rubinate nailed Lindsey's searching for meaning in her life and untangling the confusion she finds herself in. Jamie Beck is an excellent and very talented writer and paired with Rubinates' narration, inflection and control of voice, Lindsey simply pops to life - no more so than when Levi, narrated by Will Damron, saunters back into her life. Damron does a SUPURB job with Levi's character - his southern accent is pretty authentic. As a southern girl, made super sensitive about my accent from a teaching stint "up-north" I'm quick to tune into portrayals of the range of southern dialect that are disrespectful or unauthentic. Damron brings us a complex man/boy (in Levi's thoughts) who is believable, admirable, and Beck's creation became a man whose boots I'd like to see under my bed any day.

    "Terrible female narrator!"

    Male was great- sounds like Matthew McConaughey.

    Story was fine. A little drawn out, and the characters are a bit shallow.
