I'm a country potter, gardener, flute player and tin tinker living with my husband, an electrical engineer & cabinet maker.
I don't know what led me to think this would be a good book to purchase. I've listened to the first half and feel like I inadvertently walked through a high school chick flick wearing my jeans and T-shirt while others around me are dressed in lacy panties and spike heeled boots. While there may be other books in this series, I will not be buying them. Great that Nora Roberts has so many followers and fans and glad that she can live well from her creative work but I'm out of this.
Love Nora Roberts. Love just about anything that she's done. This narrator is absolutely awful. Listening is like nails down a chalkboard. I'm really thankful that the next books in the series are narrated by someone else.
Reading is in my DNA. Dad, Granddad and Grandma were all journalists and crazy readers. When I can't read, I listen!
Wait!! What a disappointment! I had listened to the other Bride books
before this one and (my fault) bought this one just assuming it was the same narrator. Talk about night and day...this narrator sounds like she is about fourteen and all the characters come off sounding like they are pre-teens as
well. Good book, poor choice of narrator...
This is the type of book that gives romance novels a bad name. Full of cliches, gooey unreal dialogue and unbelievable, unconvincing sex scenes. Often just plain boring to listen to! Well read by Emily, I wondered how she felt about reading such tripe!
couldn't keep up with all the jumping around . not at all what i expected. i thought this was about wedding planners but couldn't figure this out.
If this was the only Nora Roberts book I had ever listened to I wouldn't listen to any others... I didn't think the narrator was as bad as some of the other reviews - she wasn't the best, but certainly not the worst I've heard. That said, the caracters in the book were vapid and the plot was non-existent! Not worth it even on sale!
I have never left a negative review but I feel I should warn listeners. The book is probably good, I like Nora Roberts, but the narrator has a severe lipse. I found myself just hearing the lipse and had a hard time focusing on the story. I will have to actually read the book since the narrator is unbearable.
really Nora? Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors, but this was so bad I didn't even finish! First the narrator has a lisp, second the story is terrible! The female lead is vapid and the male is such dork that there doesn't see to be any qualities that make a romance possible. The plot is boring as well, it seems like this wasn't even written by Nora, very disappointing.
I just finished listening to Nora Roberts trilogy beginning with the book Morrigan's Cross with the superb narration of Dick Hill. It was a completely satisfying experience both with the epic saga of Ms Robert's story and the many skilled "voices" of Mr Hill. Beginning Vision in White was a jarring change due to Ms Durante's the weakly portrayed male voices and the trite plot device of the whinny parent. One of the few Audible books I didn't bother to finish.
Agree - not one of her best and the narrator is so annoying it is all I can do to keep listening and I have just really started this one. The lisp isn't the problem so much as she's kinda monotone alot.
