The overall feel of the book. Sort of dreamy and pleasant. Makes you want to settle in a pretty little seaside town and work in the cafe. The story was decent enough to keep me interested, but the setting was the star of the show.
Yes, to the ones who like a dreamy romantic read.
Almost anyone. The narrator had a nice voice and would be great for children's stories, but the way she handled what was supposed to be normal adult dialog was sorely lacking. I constantly found myself thinking, "who the *$%& talks like that??" The voice of the main character sounded downright child-like at times, enough to be a little creepy during some of the "love" scenes. While the audio book was great for passing the time while driving or doing housework, the narration left me wishing I had read the print version.
THe book itself, yes. The Narrator, no.
The Magical aspect.
Completely. I hated her voice. She does her best to make everyone sound like aseven year old. Or an old woman.
I had no problem with the romance, I thought it was wonderful. I couldn't finish it because of the narrator.
I love books and I don't like to listen to the radio on the way to work. Now I can listen to books instead! I am in heaven.
The story made you forget you were in traffic.
The story moved along at a good pace. And the character's were interesting, even though there were some sterotypes (in my humberl opinion).
When Nell's ex showed up and got his just desserts!
I felt satisfied that good triumphed, even temprarily.
I am reading the whole trilogy, and I will read another one of series, the one with Ireland in the background.
Enjoyed the story but couldn't get over the male voices. The voices were creepy. But due to the story building I have to finish the trilogy. Male voices are annoying.
Like all of Nora’s series books I really enjoyed Dane Upon The Air. The narrator was fantastic and the story line very good. This was like most of Nora’s book predictable in a way but still very enjoyable. If you enjoy Nora Roberts I think you will like this series also. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
An entertaining listen but not one of Robert's best efforts. I am a fan of Nora Roberts and have truly enjoyed most of her books. Unfortunately this book fell somewhat short of my expectations..
I love witty, fast-paced books that keep you turning the page.
I'm a big fan of female detective novels, humorous stories and spy thrillers, so haven't tried out Nora Roberts before. Boy was I ever missing a great author! This story flowed quickly and easily, keeping my interest until the last 'page' was read. The characters were believable and developed just enough to care about, but not so much you wondered when she would get back to the story. I thoroughly enjoyed the Narrator and can't wait to read the next in the trilogy!
Frankly, I'm not a huge fan of Nora Roberts. I don't usually go for romances, especially cheesy gushy ones like hers. Yet for some reason I am absolutely addicted to this series. I picked up the second one in a hospital waiting room years ago, and I had to run out and buy all three of them afterward! I bought the audio-books on cd a while back, but I didn't realize they were abridged until it was too late. Since I still listen to them and/or read the books once a year or so, I decided to invest in the unabridged versions. The characters are very engaging, and the storyline is exciting. If you like romances, or even if you don't, this trilogy is a great buy!

Extremely dissappointing. Like spending many hours in the school canteen listening to an exchange of homely recipes and little else. Thin story line, predictable shortlived climax. If this is book 1 there is nothing to induce the reader to want to continue with any others.
