This was not of the usual calibre that I have come to expect from SEP or from Anna Fields the narrator. There was none of the witty humour and the voice of the hero was not good. Anna Fields is usually brilliant and believable with male narration, but this book was a disappointment.
I'm a big SEP fan and an Anna Fields fan so this wasn't a big risk. I read this book a few years ago and remembered it was a good story. I decided that I wanted to 'listen' to it this time. And...I loved it all over again. It's a good story about two broken people who are functioning on their own but get healed together. It's uplifting. Oh...and does anyone do the secondary plot quite like SEP. I loved Ethan and his romance too. Strong men who love kids and their wives. It's irresistible!
I have listened to thousands of audio authors and Susan Elizabeth Phillips is great. I feel that I know each character. The books are engaging and poignant. I laugh out loud and smile while driving to and from my job. I have shared experiences with the characters. A must read...
This was the first SEP book that I read and it's still one of my favorites. Touching, funny, all around great listen. I've recently converted my die hard Nora Roberts fan friends over to SEP and she's fallen in love too!
If you enjoyed Nobody's Baby but Mine then you will love this one. This is the story of Gabe (and Ethan.) Again, with all of Susan Elizabeth Phillips books the dialoge is funny and corny. The story is sweet and predictable but who doesn't like a good romance!
Love romance with a little bit of humor and suspense. A Thousand Splendid Suns is one of my favorite books.
I like Susan Elizabeth Philips, but I LOVE the way Anna Fields reads. Overall the book is a romantic novel filled with humor and a bit of eroticism. I loved it! I highly recommend you giving Ms. Philips a chance to entertain you a bit every day. Rest in Peace Anna Fields, the way you tell a story is like no other.
ONCE AGAIN SEP DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. I HAD READ THE BOOK AND DECIDED TO LISTEN ON TAPE AND ENJOYED IT SO MUCH. A NICE STORY ABOUT SECOND CHANCES! HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
I loved Nobody's Baby But Mine and knew this book would be every bit as good. I wasn't disappointed. It has some humor but will pull at your heart too. I found the first time I listened to this - I went through a whole box of kleenex. I love the characters. I highly recommend if you want to hear see what happens to the Bonners after Cal and Jane's story.
What I'm Reading
Susan Elizabeth Phillips does an amazing job with making me have the feelies for this story. Adore Rachel and her inner strength to conquer the past. She's truly a good person, even when no one believes her to be one. I also love how she exacts revenge on Cal and Ethan in the end. That was awesome. I like how Gabe comes to realize that he can love again after tragedy. Overall, a pretty darn good story. If you are in a need of a good cry, Dream a Little Dream is a go to read.
