Publisher's Summary

A mission gone horribly wrong. A vicious killer who will stop at nothing. Two women on the run for their very lives. 

After 9/11, an experimental branch of the US government has been tasked with the mission of proactively putting a stop to terrorism. They have sent a team to eliminate a financier responsible for funding the worst of these organizations. Everything is going according to plan. 

Until it's not. 

The team is ambushed, and when the mission is looking its darkest, it goes from bad to worse. Former Marine scout sniper Seven Michelis is an injured black ops sharpshooter and she's on the run for her life. Peace Corps volunteer Dr. Jenny MacKenzie defies good sense and sets out to help a stranger in need. What she finds is something else entirely. 

From the rugged foothills of the Andes through the dense forests of the Amazon river basin, Seven and Jenny fight to survive the perils of being hunted through Bolivia by a killer hell-bent on homicide. Who can they trust, and what fresh hell awaits them if and when they make it home? Will they survive long enough to explore their growing attraction?

Very enjoyable

This is the first book from this author and a really great one at that. It has great characters, action packed and a wonderful romance, what more could you want? One of the US reviews suggested this novel contained no sex, this is very much not the case, it occurs on several occasions and it reads in a very tasteful way unlike some of the other lesbian ‘romances’ which feel far more like erotic fiction which is very much Not! what I am after. I very much want an interesting and exciting story with the romance being highlighted and this book by Leslie Murray very much offers this. I look forward to reading/listening to more novels by this author.

In regards to the narrator, on the whole she does quite a good job, her tone is clear and her speed very much keep the excitement in the story. The only criticism I offer is that there is very little difference between characters and in reading the story there is literally zero pause or separation between changing scenes and character voices which can be slightly confusing when characters switch.

Great read. Couldn’t stop listening.

The story is captivating and compelling. .Narrater good, sometimes couldn’t tell which character was speaking and no gap between the different sides of the story within each chapter which made you feel you had missed something each time.
Well worth purchasing!!

it could have been much better

I think I almost gave it a 3 because of the reader. Maybe it's just a style thing with me. It bothers me a bit when characters basically li y talk a lot in their head. i'm not a writer so I don't know what they call that.
All and app it was fun. i liked the action. By the end I was liking the characters.

Enjoyable

This was a good book to listen to. This book has friendship, bad ass military, at one point annoying lady but had good intentions, it had love - it didn't get heated but the love/romance was there, and a good amount of action/fight scenes.

Stunning story and narration

I originally this book and absolutely adored it. Listening to the audiobook was just as fun.

This is a huge book and a long audiobook and yet I was never bored. It kept my rapt attention from beginning to end.

On the down side there were two spots where lines were repeated, a case of editing gone wrong, sadly. But if you can live with that then this is an epic story with a gorgeous romance and kick ass action.

Loved it.

I really enjoyed Sharpshooter. I was almost envious of the friendship between Seven and Jenny. Note: Quite a bit of violence. Just giving you a heads up. Leslie McDonel does an excellent job with the narration.

Well worth the time

I wasn't sure at first if I would like it but I was very pleasantly surprised with the way the story unfolded. It wasn't the military angle I was expecting but a sweet love story among harrowing situations. Loved it.

WOW...

Yep, that’s all I could say when this adventure ended. WOW! Ms. Murray was either a sharpshooting spook in real life or has an exceptional investigative process and instinct when developing characters and plots. This deserves 5 stars, but received 4 on performance as there were a few times I had to rewind to see which character I was listening to. The storyline is so overpowering you want to urn the page before finishing the page and not take a breath for several. Leslie McDonel became this reader and was each character. I wait in anticipation of Ms. Murray’s next book, audio or other, and hope Ms McDonel is the chosen narrator!

Excellent!

It’s a tale of two friends from long ago finding each other in the most unlikely place. They come together to find their way out of danger falling in love along the way. Fantastic narration and a compelling story. Worth the listen!

Great story recorded in a metal container?

I really enjoyed the story - it was great. The characters were well developed. The narration was not bad at all, but the editing was almost laughable. You could tell every single time they dubbed in something. Also, many, many parts sounded like they were recorded in a shipping container! Overall, the storyline made up for the editing, but it could have been so much better.
