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.

Excellent detective novel!

Minutes to Kill is an excellent detective novel with lots of suspense. Narration is disappointing.

Great story.. Horrible narration..

Any additional comments?

Loved the storyline and the players: Brody and Hannah were a great twosome. It was wonderful seeing Grant and Ellie and Carson again. The bad guys, Mick and Sam were so bad and sooo disgusting and sooo very, very mean. You really couldn’t help but hate them with your whole being. BUT I did love Hannah! She could seriously kick some a$$. The book was constantly exciting, from Las Vegas to New York, something was always happening.

There’s never a whole lot of sexual tension in her books but there’s some and she writes very good bedroom scenes.

Because it makes me crazy that every single romance has one thing in common, from now on, I’m going to mention the heroine biting her lip. Worrying her lip. Chewing at her lip or nibbling at her lip, or doing whatever to her lip. No one bit their lip. Yay!

As to the narration: Let me start by saying, the narrator was truly awful, and I’m pretty sure within a couple of days I’ll get a “not helpful” vote from her. At the end of her sentences she comes to an abrupt halt and her male voices simply sucked. I mean, Sam and Royce and Chet and Frank, the coroner, the detective in Las Vegas, Herb, almost every male voice, sounded like cartoon characters, almost like she was holding her nose to try to give them all a nasally sound, even Mac, Hannah’s brother. If he EVER has his own story this narrator will destroy the book. You’d think, with this being 2015, a lot of these narrators would have listened to the readers’ complaints and tried to improve but I think some of them think they are so good they don’t need improvement. That’s some pretty wrong thinking. I have listened to Ms.Dukehart for the last time. Even the 3 reviews written on Audible one person, God know why, gave her 4 stars, and the others 2 gave her 2 stars and mine will be 1 star so that should tell you something about her narration.

I would like to say that the description tells us what the book is about or we can zip over to Amazon and look at reviews. This is AUDIBLE! What we need to review is the narrator. Does he or she suck? Why? Is he or she too nasal-y, too sweet for the kind of book he or she is reading, to gruff, too bland, too robotic, lacks emotion. Is he or she doing nothing but reading the book? Not changing his or her voice for the male and female voices? Is the narrator sounding the same whether she or he is reading a whisper spoken?
Most of us on AUDIBLE don't really care what the book is about. We want to know about the narrator!

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.
