While a Navy SEAL chases an international terrorist in a sleepy Massachusetts waterfront town, an accomplished pediatrician struggles with her rekindled passion for their unfinished high school romance. Reader William Dufris's primary assets are his contemporary emotional range and the almost palpable color he brings to descriptive phrases. His flexible voice coaxes the listener to use more senses than just listening, a skill especially suitable for the romance genre. While he injects whimsy and energy into the text, his vocal characterizations are lacking, especially for the female characters. His attempt at a Texas accent is especially disappointing. Dufris would do better with a straight read. N.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
