Publisher's Summary

Swept off your feet and into a nightmare....

A powerful blend of love story, betrayal and obsession, The Guardian is written with electrifying intensity, playing with your emotions at every turn.

Widowed at a young age, Julie understands the pain that comes with love and has avoided romance for a long time. As she eases herself back into the dating scene, her eye is caught by the darkly sophisticated Richard as he begins a passionate pursuit of her affections. But she is still confused by her feelings for best friend Mike: funny, loyal but definitely not sophisticated.

A seemingly innocent choice sets off a deadly chain of events that leaves Julie fighting for her life as jealousy simmers into murderous desire.

Satisfactory, yet slightly annoying.

Overall the book was fairly easy listening. The story was quite predictable and I felt like the ending needed more work. What annoyed me most, though, was the narrator's extremely horrible acting in the distressing situations. Which made the ending a bit more painful than it needed to be.

Okay

I am with the previous reviewer, not a patch on the author’s previous books. Very very slow, predictable and to be honest I did not really like the characters. Good but not the best.

Not Nicholas Sparks’ best

I normally love a Nicholas Sparks novel. But unfortunately this was corny, predictable and fairly boring. Ah well.
