Publisher's Summary

In Body of Evidence, a sexy, romantic, political thriller, an archaeologist and a US Attorney find themselves on an explosive, globe-spanning chase full of political intrigue and legal drama. Body of Evidence is the second book in Grant's Evidence Series, where archaeology, politics, and war collide. And she thought facing a firing squad was bad...When archaeologist Mara Garrett traveled to North Korea to retrieve the remains of GIs lost in combat, she never imagined she'd be arrested, convicted of spying, and sentenced to death. Her only hope is Curt Dominick, the powerful, ambitious, and infuriatingly sexy US attorney prosecuting her uncle, a former vice president of the United States.

What starts off as a rescue mission quickly morphs into a race across the Pacific. Someone is after Mara, and they'll risk everything to stop her from reaching Washington, D.C. With betrayal around every corner, Curt and Mara have little reason to trust each other, and every reason to deny the sparks between them that blaze hotter than the Hawaiian sun. Still, desire clashes with loyalty when they discover a conspiracy that threatens not only their lives, but the national security of the United States.

Nail bitting drama!

Wow, talk about the nine lives of cats, this pair has almost expanded their's that is for sure.
From the 1st chapter to the last, there is one dramatic scenario after another. The strong commitment of the lawyer, the stronger belief in the uncle's ethical character.
It was one h3ll of a trip, and the reader had a ring side seat to the action.
l love the audiobook narrator's vocalizations of the various characters. It adds that much more to the dimension of an already enjoyable read.

Action packed

This story was well written and had a very good plot. It was not easy to guess where it was going and who was really involved in the cover up. There was more than enough action to satisfy any thrill seeker. The phone conversation between Mara and Curt were hot and also funny.
It’s a series well worth reading/listening to.

Good read!

I very much enjoyed this book. The narrator has a very pleasant voice. The story moves along quickly and has some very interesting and unusual plot twists. I will read or listen to more of her books.

Body

This is the second book in the series & both heroes are complete jerks. The hero of this book slightly less so, but not by much. Why would the women fall in love with them? Chemistry only explains so much.

Excellent Novel

Rachel Grant has done an exceptional job on this series so far. The characters are so real and the plot well done. My interest was caught from the very first page to the lady.

Great sex and a page turner mystery

More romance and sex than I expected. Mostly integrated with the plot, but could have been two separate books. Really liked both of them.

Fantastic Romantic Suspense

I was curious at the premise of a American being convicted for crimes in North Korea. I assumed that it would have political intrigue, drama and suspense. This book delivers - in spades. It is a wonderful balance of tight, tension-filled action and hot romance.

The story: The former Vice President is in a lot of trouble. He has been indicted for influence peddling and is being prosecuted by the star of the US Attorney General's office, Curt Dominik. Curt Dominik is also the special envoy sent to North Korea at the request of the government to pick up Dr. Mara Garrett after being accused of being a spy. Dr. Garrett also happens to be the favorite niece of said VP.

On the surface it is a seemingly simple exchange, but things get crazy when murders happen, a plane blows up, and people are betrayed. We have Rapture, a notorious private security contractor, involved and things get more and more complicated. The events keep the readers on their toes and left wondering, "what's next?"

The narrator does a fine job keeping the pace fast and tension high.

If you are an RS fan, you will not be disappointed by this audio book.

Outstanding Romantic Suspense

I loved Body of Evidence when I read it last year and just listened to the recently released audiobook. I'm going to purchase the entire series because Whispersync pricing at Audible is impossible to resist and these books are among the best romantic suspense out there.

That said, I have a few issues with new-to-me narrator Nicole Zanzaraella. Grant's heroines are all scientists -- super smart and professionally accomplished -- a huge selling point. To my ear narrator Zanzaraella missed heroine's characterization by just thismuch. It was jarring to hear a sultry, kittenish voice when I was not expecting it. Not to say that a smart, professional scientist can't be sultry and sexy but it was just thismuch off. Zanzarelli doesn't do character voices -- everyone sounds the same -- so that pouty voice thing was a scene killer.

Still, I've bought the entire series in audio because the writing is that good and the pricing is irresistible.

Pronouns are important.

very distracted by the narrator"s continual use of "he" when it should have been "she".

Mostly good

Overal would be 3.5 for me. I loved so much of this story. The thing prevents me from rating it higher was the Mara’s character. Reminds of the action movies made in the 80’s and 90’s, where the male action star always had a super emotional female counterpart. My brain could not marry Stanford graduate with the ridiculous attitude and behaviors she displayed. Not to mention she acted like a dog in heat for 2/3 of the book. I found it distracting. He was connecting clues and facts and thinking logically and it played well. Maybe i am just more of a fan of thrillers written by male authors and thats why her ridiculous yearnings were on my nerves. I still liked this book a lot. Mostly liked the thrill and seek portions and getting to facts revealed.

Body of Evidence

The "sex" descriptions were somewhat OTT and a bit squirm-inducing. The narrator's voice was very irritating and annoying - too breathy and melodramatic!
