あらすじ・解説

Twelve years ago, Sarah Baker was abducted by the Watt Lake Killer and sexually assaulted for months before managing to escape. The killer was caught, but Sarah lost everything: her marriage, her child, and the life she loved.

Struggling with PTSD, Sarah changes her name to Olivia West and finds sanctuary working on Broken Bar Ranch. But as her scars finally begin to heal, a cop involved with her horrific case remains convinced the Watt Lake Killer is still out there. He sets a lure for the murderer, and a fresh body is discovered. Now Olivia must face the impossible - could the butcher be back, this time to finish his job?

As a frigid winter isolates the ranch, only one person can help Olivia: Cole McDonough, a ranch heir, writer, and adventurer who stirs long-dormant feelings in her. But this time, Olivia's determination to shut out her past may destroy more than her chance at love. It could cost her her life.

Masterfully Written!

One of the best written thrillers I've read. This book was more a romantic suspense than a psychological thriller, but it was outstanding. The author's use of theme and the way she wove this story like an intricate tapestry was masterful. Highly recommend!

Confusing genres + whiney youth

At times thriller, then gore and then a little soft porn. Why too much filler/descriptive about leaves and feelings. Everything the teenage character said sounded overly whiney. Something odd happening with the audio, kept dipping into a different recording quality - which was irritating, that coupled with the whiney kid made it a mission to finish.

It was definitely dark..

It was a good read, but I was hoping for more of a mystery. There are some "twists," but you can see them coming from a mile away. Regardless, I enjoyed listening to it. I'm a fan of dark and twisted imagery, and there is definitely a good amount of it in this book.

psychological romance thriller

was a little worried at first it might be too much of a romance novel, however I was wrong. the psychological thriller part took over. great book. very predictable but still a good story.

Simply Could Not Continue Listening!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Narration by a trained voice actress, this was flat and at times, tinny (editing issue). To me, the story was sophomoric. Descriptions of Cole's masculinity, "electricity" and hazel eyes, ad nauseum. Of course, there was immediate sexual tension between the antagonists. Perhaps I am just spoiled by Phillipa Gregory and Bianca Amato, Diana Gabaldon and Davina Porter. Seemed as if every sentence or paragraph was preceded by or contained lengthy descriptions of location, scenery, persons, etc. much of which became repetitive and distracting.

Would you ever listen to anything by Loreth Anne White again?

Probably not, however, seeing other reviews, there are many who loved this book. To each his/her own..chocolate and vanilla.

Would you be willing to try another one of Emily Sutton-Smith’s performances?

No, while her diction is good, her inflection is flat and her attempts at accents and male voices are mediocre. Again, simply an opinion.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Dark Lure?

Not having finished the book and simply persevering through the parts I did, I am unable to provide this.

Excellent suspense thriller

My only prior exposure to Loreth Ann White's books was In the Waning Light which is a good chick lit mystery wrapped around dozens of extremely graphically described sex scenes. A Dark Lure is very different. It is a well written and well narrated dark psychological suspense thriller set on a ranch in the mountains of British Columbia. All of the characters are damaged by past or current events, some far more than others. I recommend A Dark Lure for anyone who enjoys any sub genre of mystery/thrillers. I would listen to this book again.

Riveting and exciting couldn't stop listening at times, very suspenseful.

I greatly enjoyed this author and will seek out further books of hers. I not only enjoy the character in the story line but truly felt The story teller did an amazing job portraying each character.

A Great Read!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it was a well written story with an interesting plot line and characters. Unlike some of the books I've read lately, I did become interested in the characters involved. I didn't want to put it down.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Dark Lure?

The twists and turns of the story kept me very interested.

What does Emily Sutton-Smith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She has a very pleasing voice to listen to, but there were many moments that her voice sounded as if its was in a wind tunnel. I'm not sure how that happened, but it didn't fit with the story, so I have to assume that it was a production error.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

You never knew what was going to happen next!

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book very much.

It was ok, but...

There was way too much romance and description of the male protagonist's abs, and other part of him. Leave out all of that and the thriller/suspense story would have been better. The editing was bad with obvious changes in audio quality. About half way through I bumped up the audio speed to 1.5. That helped me finish the book. I would recommend this to anyone who likes soft porn mixed into a story, but not for someone who is serious about listening to a suspense story.

Good gritty drama

This book kept me interested from the beginning.
Good stuff.
The narration was a bit random and not the best, but didn't detract from the story.

Distracting production edits

I enjoyed the story and the narrator was generally good, but there are loads of unnatural edits were it's clearly been re-recorded, which is very distracting.

More of a Suspense than a romance

This is a really good book but I have to be honest, it was just a bit raw for me. The suffering of the h was awful, and the fact that 12 years later she was still only just managing to cope, and was still suffering from PTSD, was a sign of how much she endured. The action and suspense were non-stop, the romance part was pretty muted with an uncomfortable sex scene in the middle which I would have been happier not to read. The final chapters added even more to the suffering of the h. Some people will love this book, it is extremely well written and an absorbing plot, and towards the end I was unable to switch it off. I loved how the h just kept fighting back even when she was at her lowest. However I do personally prefer less graphic descriptions of violence and a bit more romance in my books, and I would have loved a “happy ever after” epilogue to let me see the h finally getting some well deserved happiness.
