Publisher's Summary

After corporate attorney Hannah Barrett tries - and fails - to stop a kidnapping in Vegas, she can't shake the haunting image of the terrified young girl she couldn't save. She tells herself that a visit to her hometown in Scarlet Falls could be a welcome distraction. But soon, Hannah realizes the kidnappers have all the info they need to track her every move. And when chilling e-mails about the victim appear in her inbox, it's frighteningly clear what happened in Vegas has followed her home.

Eight months after a terrible family tragedy, Hannah turns to Detective Brody McNamara once again. Brody is eager to help, though he's embroiled in the investigation of a brutal murder. But the closer they work together, the stronger their feelings grow...and the more they stand to lose when two seemingly unrelated, but equally deadly, cases collide.

Minutes to Kill is the pulse-racing second novel in bestselling author Melinda Leigh's Scarlet Falls series.

Fabulous!

Second in the series and just as good as the first. Could easily be read as a standalone but reading the series in order will add a deeper dimension to the plot. Soooooo good to read about a strong independent h who thinks rationally and calmly in a crisis and can fight her corner (sometimes literally) especially as this book illustrates how a woman can defend herself if she fights using her head as much as her hands. Special mention has to go to one of the side character – a functioning alcoholic. Rather than depicting this character as an unpleasant drunken idiot, as so many writers do, we were shown the causes and reasons behind his constant struggles with alcohol, and how, when sober, he could be a likeable and productive person. Great book, realistic romance, I am looking forward to next in series.

A thoroughly good listen/read

This was a really good story well presented with just one small criticism:

Escape from some of the life threatening tight situations seemed just a little bit easy and comfortable. There was never the underlying thought that things could ever go horribly wrong.

I actually grew to admire the two main characters Hannah and Brodie and the two bad guys were portrayed as totally evil and violent even if some of their actions, thank goodness, weren't described in great detail.
definitely worth listening to for a mixture of criminal detective work, corporate corruption and romance.

character voices

initially I found the narrator's attempt at male voices irritating but once I got into the story it didn't seen to matter

great book

Would you listen to Minutes to Kill again? Why?

yes i would, i thought it was a really good book and the suspense kept me hooked even though you knew who the killer was from the beginning.

What did you like best about this story?

Liked the way hannah and Broadies relationship developed. i love the romance in the book but i am glad it mainly focuses on the suspence par of it and the crime itself.

Have you listened to any of Cris Dukehart’s other performances? How does this one compare?

i listened to her read the first book in this series. however before this series i don't believe i've listened to anything read by her before. she is a good narater and gives the characters there own voices.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

bit of both in parts because of the way the girls were treated.

Any additional comments?

fantastic and looking forward to stella and mac's stor coming up in book three.

Boring and Trivial

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Extremely predictable. At first I kept thinking that I had read it before but then I realized that it was because it was such a commonplace plot that it reminded every other book.

Has Minutes to Kill put you off other books in this genre?

Yes

What didn’t you like about Cris Dukehart’s performance?

Monotonous expressionless reading

Was Minutes to Kill worth the listening time?

Definitely not
