Loved it! Narrator was fantastic! Enjoyed the story and all the details of the characters lives. Definitely a book I'll listen to again! Great job, Ms Stacey. I can't wait to check out your other works!
I'm a busy mom who loves to listen to books. Mostly I listen on my way to and from work.
Joe was my favorite. An easy going, fun loving, and humble guy.
There was a scene with mud and four wheelers that made me laugh.
This would be a lifetime film.
I enjoyed this book more than i thought I would. The story of two old lovers coming back together is always sweet, but combine that with being forced out in the wilderness (camping) with a ruckus family and you have a hoot of a story and a sweet loving reunion
I would have to say no. This was a fun and light listen, but not my favorite in the Kowalski series.
I would compare this to a Harlequin romance novel. A little farfetched, a little contrived but everything works out in the end with a happy little bow tied on it.
I enjoyed her narration, she is not the best that I have heard, but not nearly the worst either!
No extreme reactions. It was a nice little story that kept me entertained in traffic!
I read this book a couple of years ago and liked it.
It was my first Stacey experience and I went on to read most of her backlist.
The narration is good, even though having the author say a voice is "booming" and the narrator is doing that voice as a stereotypical thready, whiney elderly gentleman was a bit irritating. Actually, even if the voice was dead on, it would have been irritating.
This is a multi-character book with many a conflict between the various couples in it.
But the secondary and tertiary stories were just as well drawn as the main story.
All in all, a lovely little book. I thoroughly enjoyed listening on a rainy Saturday while cleaning house.
The narration for the most part was good. Again, with so many characters active and talking, it is hard for any voice artist to make them distinguishable. I appreciated that she didn't make the kids all sound whiney or bratty and the women weren't either "good girl" or "trashy girl" or "whining brat." Each of the women were voiced maturely with no intonation that jerked me out of the story.
No spoilers from me. I enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, 4 me.I'm running out this typeAudible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery.
It was a nice story with interesting and funny characters.
Not quite up to the level of Sophie Kinsella or Marian Keyes-but fun.
She did a great job with male and female characters-hard to do, but she did it!
Sure, but I could leave it and come back
I will probably buy the remaining in the series but only on sale.
The story was light and funny.
The entire family and the similarities of real life.
Great narrator. Engaging and funny.
The story would make me laugh, cry and I couldn't wait to listen more.
Halfway through this book, I went ahead and bought the next book in the series.
Interesting enough to keep me wanting to continue with the series, but not great. Gets better into the series. The narrator is terrible with men's voices. They sound like whiny children. Joe is a thirty something man who keeps repeating "Babe" like he's still in his teens. Keri is ruled by a demanding boss. Joe's twin, Terry, is still holding a grudge from high school against Keri. Good to see each eventually put the past behind and move on to a new commitment.
This was a good romance with plenty of substance in the story, as well as many loveable family members to follow. Just enough detail to keep it interesting and not too fluffy, with some steaminess as well. The narration by Lauren Fortgang was fabulous!
Lauren is great
The characters just meshed. Love the interactions between them.
Will read her other books.
