Absolutely loved it. Nora Roberts is an excellant writer. I love audible as I can download to my laptop and listen while I am roaming the internet.
this is the first book i have listened to that has a female for the reader and i was a little uncertain at first but WOW was i mistaken she is amazing
Yes, I enjoyed the book. It, of course, followed a typical formula. You had a good idea in the first chapter what the last chapter would be, but it was enjoyable.
While the characters were different, it had some of the same feel as Blue Dahlia by Nora. A bit of mysticism, but primarily a focus on the lives of the protagonists over the supernatural around them.
It's really hard for me to pick a favorite scene, but I would say it was probably when Ripley finally joined them for the circle and they all made fire.
Because of Nell's abusive past, this book has a huge amount of ups and owns. There's one moment in it where she's having a panic attack over eggplants that just about broke my heart. It was a well-written scene by an author that's obviously made an effort to understand the minds of people who have suffered abuse.
Say something about yourself!
The witchy magic of the story and the inner strength and courage, Nell's transformation. I like book stores and cafes and I love to cook and bake so I think that appealed to me.
I like Nell's character growth and she is really likable. She is someone I would like to have lunch with.
Nora's Bride Quartet but this book is better.
When Nell asks for the job at the cafe and later when her and Mia shop and get a rocking outfit for Nell.
Nell overcoming her challenges. Don't want to give the book away.
This is a wonderful book and Burr's narration carries me away and I enjoy the story not get annoyed by her voice like some of the other narrators annoy me.
Love to listen to books. Do tons of driving and they keep me sane.
Wonderful story and going to get the rest of the series. The main characters are fun and interesting and the side players keep thing interesting.
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
A tale of three very different women; Nell, an abused woman on the run; Mia, a young, old soul who has strong threads in witchcraft; Ripley, a headstrong, fiercely fit, deputy.
When fate brings all three of them together on an island off the shore of Massachusetts there is an unexpected rejuvenation of an anchient magic. It is a love story wrapped around a crime drama, wrapped around a tale of discovery. The narrator does a good job and adds a nice pace to this fast, charming read.
Romance, Suspense, Magic.
When the women touched hands and realized there was magic.
No, but I thought she was great.
It made me smile.
Can't wait to listen to the next books in the series!
Audio-fiction ADDICT !
I love Nora Robert's style in writing. Sweet, and magical yet you can relate to it. I enjoy the community she creates, she does not concentrate only on the main two characters, she blends in different characters to examine different aspects of human emotions and interactions. The paranormal twist that she adds in this book is so different from other paranormal fiction, it is in small sweet doses that you still relate to it.
The narrator was good , however not my favorite contemporary narrator. She needs to work more on her male voices and add more life to her characters
Very enjoyable book :) I recommend it :)
I love Nora Roberts but this was definitely not her best work. I almost feel like I have to read the others in the trilogy and hope they are better than this one.
I am a guy who is usually drawn toward the typical genres for dudes. Somehow I stumbled upon Nora Roberts. I loved the story and performance for "The Witness" - my first Nora Roberts book - so I was really looking forward to my second submersion... Not sure if it's that the writing has less passion and energy? - it seems very cliche - or if it's that I have a serious dislike for the narration?. It was very old style acting, campy speech by the narrator. Some people may like that style. I don't. *** The dialog and Narration for "The Witness" was fantastic! *** Highly recommend it!
