I don't even know if the story is any good since the narrator was so terrible. I was so distracted by how irritating her voice was that I couldn't concentrate on the story. The way that she spoke grated on my nerves. There were times that I actually cringed. Sometimes I just rolled my eyes. I had a hard time liking any of the charactors just because her irritating voice destroyed them. Two thumbs down on this one. The only positive side to this is that I won't ever spend any money on an audio-book again without checking out the sample and reading the reviews first!
I thought I would give Anne Flosnick another chance...unfortunately, not any better. Will not purchase another audiobook with this narrator, period.
The story was OK - enjoyable romance from a bygone era, but the narrator absolutely ruined the experience. She was dreadful. Her voice was jarring and raspy. I will not listen to any other books that are narrated by her. Big thumbs down.
It was a good enough story but I should have listened to the reviews that said the narration has bad, because it was, her voice too dramatic for me. I was able to finish it but rolled my eyes at the narration and it took away from the love story in it. I like Julie Garwood style of writing, however I will just not listen to this narrator anymore.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I loved reading this book when I was younger. With that said the audio leaves some to be desired due to the narrator. But no matter what I will listen to what ever Linda has to write, even though I like her older stuff better than her newer FBI stuff.
Slow start but definitely got moving. Excellent historical romance as always with Julie Garwood. She's first class and so is the narration.
I have read several Garwood books, and even though they are quite formulaic, there is just something comforting about them. They almost always live up to expectations. However, the performance of this novel quite ruined the experience for me. I think Anne Flosnik did the best job she could, but her voice was not well-suited for this book.
I love Julie Garwood books. This one my pick of them all. The main characters are funny and delightful. The story is multi layered and never boring even after listening to it several times.
Christian, musician (piano & guitar), singer (Aussie, NZ, Country & Gospel), love nature, animal rescue primarily dogs in my case. Love God!
The narration was so awful I almost couldn't finish! Don't waste your time or money! Avoid Anne Flosnik as a narrator!
The premise and characters were charming. The reader's male voices were horrible; her overall inflections weren't suited to the situations. I would love to listen again with a different performer.
