Probably not, but I seldom listen to a book twice.
I have read or listened to several Robert's series and while they all have the same formula, they are all different.

Keep them coming, Ms. Roberts!

Characters are loveable and you feel like you belong with them. It is predictable but perfect for an easy listening book to make you smile.
Only have audio (I travel alot - drive) so really can't say. Although, I do enjoy listening to the characters.
The realness. I found myself laughing out loud occasion - which is pretty funny when you're listening in public.
The ghost looking for the boys. She honest sorrow and how the Mom realizes what's wrong.
southern ghost story
In love with love...
This book is a hoot! The home sounds comfortable, open and inviting...even with a ghost. The characters are real aren't they? The narrator brings each one of them to life and I'm almost jealous that I don't have that southern drawl...it sounds so cool.
I chose this because of the good reviews by others. They were not wrong. Try it...
I had just finished Nora Roberts' book "The Witness" and gave it rave reviews. However, it was pure misery finishing this book. You could tell the entire story after reading the first few chapters. It was boring, predictable, unimaginative, "Hallmarkish" and any other cliché I could use to say the book was a cliché. Don't waste your time, credit or money on this one.
I love Nora Robert's books. Always have. This book along with all of the following books in this trilogy, are wonderful. Nora Roberts connects each book and the common theme in the books is intriguing.
Suzie Breck does a wonderful job narrating this book. Each character has a distinct voice and it is easy to know who is speaking. Her voice makes this listen enjoyable.
Thoroughly enjoyed ths book - yes it's a romance, and yes it's light and silly and girly, but fast paced and fun, and made me want to rush out into the backyard and start gardening immediately (snow notwithstanding). Great one for vacation reading.
Interesting & page turner
She makes you love each character. Make you feel like you are right there in the story.
YES! I found myself sitting in my car not wanting to stop listening.
Those who enjoy Nora Roberts should find this ok.
Sure. She was a fine reader.
It's just the characters were so fake.

I liked Roz Harper, the rich independent woman who owns Harper House, a huge storied estate on the outskirts of Memphis. Wealthy Roz starts her own plant nursery business, and business is booming so much she hires Stella Rothchild, a widow from Michigan, as manager. I liked Hayley Phillips, Roz's young pregnant distant cousin, who shows up at the door seeking a job. Roz not only takes in Hayley, gives her a job, and provides for her health care but also insists that Stella and her two boys live in the mansion, with live-in man-Friday David adding child care to his duties.
I didn't care for the main characters, driven, planning-to-the-last-nanosecond Stella Rothchild, surprised into romance with slow-talking laconic strong-silent-cowboy-type landscape designer Logan Kitridge, who originally resents Stella's required paperwork and falls for her initially because of her wild red hair. I didn't like the ghost story either. We never find what happened to make the ghost haunt the children's rooms of the manse. The ghost is harmless (except for bringing freezing cold in her wake) when singing to the children but angry and threatening when their mother gets romantically involved.
yes, I've read a lot of her books. This was the first letdown.
far from my favorite
