I put off buying this book many times because of what others said about the narrator, but I finally bit the bullet and got it. It was great! I didn't notice any kind of speech issue. The narrator is at least as good as others I've heard, and better than some. And, of course, with a Nora Roberts book, you can't go wrong. I enjoyed the second book more, but I like this narrator better. Either way, I say go ahead and download the series!
I am having trouble listening to this book. No offense to Ms. Durante, the narrator, but her lisp can be distracting. I was sorry in the beginning I used my credit. I continued to listen as I did not want to waste my credit and eventually you get used to the lisp and become more involved in the characters. All in all, not Ms. Roberts' best effort. Just okay. I am not sure if it was the narrator or content.
I love all of Nora's books but seeing some of the reviews for the narrator Emily Durante, I was hesitant. Well I loved her! She made the characters come alive and I could just "see" them as if they were in the room with me. Great job!
Colorado Springs, CO, United States I particularly enjoy romance/fantasy books, management books, and YA fiction.
Yes! I loved it! Most of my girlfriends are engaged or in serious relationships and a love story about close friends, a wedding business, and love? What more could we want?!
As much as I love Mackenzie, Laurel is definitely my favorite character. In terms of personality she is most like me.
I have not heard any other Emily Durante performances.
YES! I could not get enough of it. I listened to it in the car so I didn't get to listen to it all in one sitting, but I would have loved to!
I didn't hear the lisp other reviewers are talking about. The only complaint I have about the narrator is I wish she made more of a difference in the 4 main women characters. It was hard to tell who was speaking. Other than that though, I really enjoyed the narration. I'm glad I didn't let the negative reviews keep me from listening to this book. The story is classic Nora Roberts so it's excellent--of course. Really enjoyed this book & look forward to reading/listening the the rest of the serire.
The story is so boring, I can't imagine anyone enjoying it. But worst than the writing, is the voice of the narrator, it is very irritating and mono toned. I have to advise anyone not to waste your money on this audio book....
I love books...I love storytelling. Audiobooks allow me to enjoy a great story while still being able to do my daily routine. Thanks Audible
Yes and I have! I enjoyed the entire quartet. It was fun to hear it in audio production.
Loved Carter! Perfect blend of shy and romantic!
Laughed several times. Great dialog for Carter.
Highly recommend the entire series (reading). I am currently listening to the series.
I am a big fan of Nora Roberts books and I particularly love this series. I have listened to it many times and have read it as well. To me this is always such an enjoyable pick me up and a sweet escape.
A new narrator. More grow up story line.
I am not sure, I have read a ton of Nora's books but this really brings her books to a new level.
voice changes were really bad. I couldn't tell who was talking.
