Publisher's Summary

Despite a happy childhood, successful entrepreneur Addison Fox has always yearned to find her birth mother. And with the unexpected death of her adoptive parents comes a renewed determination to fill in the missing pieces of her life - to find her "other" family. But she's too late....

Burnt-out from past investigations, Randall Talbot is looking for some relief while helping out at his brother's detective agency. But when Addison Fox walks in, he can't resist her plea for help - even though her case is murder....

Addison is the sole survivor of her bloodline - a line that a killer is determined to make extinct. And even if the world-weary Randall has little regard left for life, he may be the only man capable of saving hers....

Couldn’t listen anymore

Could only listen for 10 minutes as the reader was the worst ever. Simpering And exaggerating a line doesn’t cut it for me. Bought the book on Linda’s reputation and her Kate B series. Won’t do that again.

Disappointed

I have loved her Amish Mysteries. I am disappointed in this book, not up to her other books.

Two thumbs down

Too much heavy breathing crying. Everything was over done, maybe reading would have been better.

Some narrators are exceptional and some are painful.

The Perfect Victim was as frustrating to hear as I have ever experienced. Castillo is a favorite author, so much so that I suffered through this annoying narration despite wanting to scream and tear my hair out! The character of Addison was vilified by Lee with voice inflection so that she came across as a whiney, spoiled, selfish brat. But probably the most annoying was Lee’s inflection messed up the listening volume. I listen before going to sleep and it was impossible to adjust the volume when Lee went from whispering to screaming in a single paragraph. I liken this narration to overacting. Castillo, as usual, does not disappoint.

Disappointing

I have read all of Linda Castillo's "Kate Burkholder" stories and loved them. I thought I would try one of her others. I was extremely disappointed. The narrator was awful and the love scenes were close to pornographic. Story was okay, but it was hard to continue to listen to the end.

Intriguing book— however

Book ok, however I found the “female “ histrionics and stubborn obtuseness a bit tiring.. and the narrator’s rendition exacerbated this. Puh—- lease !!! 🤣Storyline ok but just could have done without the silliness of the suffering neurotic but “dig in her heels” w someone trying to protect her ..

Murder Story or Romance Novel?

I think this book could have been much better if they left out all of the romance novel type scenes. Focus on the story, not sex!

Nails on the Chalkboard Narrator

Linda Castillo is one of my favorite authors and the story line of this book was as good as any. However, Ann Marie Lee's breathy, over dramatic, near hysteria reading of every single line ruined the book. She was dreadful.

Just not a fan.

I love Castillo's Kate Burkholder series, but this is dreadful. Too much angst, overdone self-reflection, so much unnecessary verbiage. Didn't care much for the narrator. Over done drama infusion.
