Friend of God... Saved by grace... Mother of 3 gifts... Wife of one... Worship dancer.... Educated by God, Academia and Willy Wonka...
Believe it or not, this is only my second Nora Roberts book - the other I actually read. I thought her material would be too "knight in shining armor' for me. I was pleasantly surprised with Montana Sky. In three words (not necessarily a sentence) I would say the story is about love, identity and discovery.
The most memorable moment of the story for me was when I realized that the individual who I believed was the guilty party was really... well... you will know when you listen. I don't want to spoil the most memorable moment.
Something about the sisters coming together and finding friendship was very moving for me. It was not necessarily a moment in the story but it was something for which to cheer as you listened.
If the author would have done research, or had some one with a working knowledge of ranch life proof-read her manuscript she could have avoided many of the glaring inconguities in the book. She could also have skipped the female erotism. There was way too much of it and it was just irritating.
She could have done so much more with the interesting story line.
I think Ms Leigh did a very good job with what she was given. If there was a saving grace in this audio book, it was her!
The long drawn out love scenes!
If you are looking for the typical Harlequin-type romance (x 3) with a western theme then this is the book for you.
The way this narrator voiced the men was absolutely disgusting. Every man sounded like he had a 70's porn mustache. I've never seen a porn film, but this must be what they are like. I felt icky - and like I needed a shower.
I wasn't too fussed with the female sisters to start with , but as Nora Roberts wove her magic with the relationships they grew on me. I actually think the violence in the harsh landscape that the book was set against was very fitting.
The main Character seems to be involved with a guy who doesn't seem to take no for an answer.... seem pretty standard but, the aggression portrayed and the way he forces her... No always means no. not themes I think should be promoted in society and not something i thought i would find in one of Nora's books.
not portrayed the relationship between the lead characters as being one that borders on abusive.
Yes, I'm sure there are things I didn't notice all through the book now that I know the ending and I'd like to go back and read this one again to discover them.
I loved how the 3 sisters became friends. it was well written and though you supposed there'd be a happy ending the way Roberts writes you just aren't ever sure until it happens. I like the way she slowly brought each character of the 3 sisters into caring for eachother. Very realistic for me.
I like the naration but it wasn't the best I've heard. you could not always tell who was talking by her voices, but it was well spoken for the emotion levels.
Loved the story. The plot was complex enough for me to enjoy listening to it. The narrator's high pitched, squeaky voice for the housekeeper and some of the cowboys just grated.
Start with a plot that is not predictable.
Start with characters that are not dull and predictable.
Just dull and predictable...oh sometimes abrassive.
The 3 dull sisters and their 3 predictable men.
Love hate relationship. Nora Roberts writes one wonderful book then coasts on the next.
Tess was my favorite character because she was real and outrageously funny!
She did a wonderful job with Tess' character.
There were many times I laughed hard!
Absolutely loved this book! It had a bit of everything making it a very well rounded book!
Say something about yourself!
Good, but not as good as The Witness or The Search
narrator struggled with male voices. Ben sounded like Olympia Dukakis talking, so that was distracting
violence was too descriptive, could have been toned down and would have not taken away from the story line.
