Love this book it had a little of every thing love suspense, ghosts and happiness.... my only regret it ended :)
I am a truck driver and I drove from TX to FL to due this listening to this book. I enjoyed every minute of it.
Thank you Jennifer and Angela you all did an excellent job cant wait to buy more of your books.
The humor and connections within this book makes the entire store work. I laughed. I cheered and I teared up. Great job Ms. Cruise. Wonderful narration work Ms. Dawe. I'm a long time fan of Lorelei King who do great character work. I'm now a fan of Angela Dawe who did great work with this book. You made this project sound like a old radio theater show. BRAVO!!
Of all the classic novels I would expect to be turned into a contemporary romance novel, the Turn of the Screw is probably one of the last, with all its gothic Freudian overtones, allusions to child molestation and actual child death. Maybe this Time is a much, much lighter retelling; the story is not told in first person like Turn, but in an occasionally shifting limited third person perspective, so it comes down definitely on one side of the 'issue.' I was totally caught by surprise by the plot; I had no idea what this novel was when I bought it. I was a little nervous once I figured out what was going on, but I ended up really liking it for two reasons. One, the novel is a really good romance novel on its own with elements that are original and fun, like the dueling mothers-in-law; the god-awful tv reporter; the allied medium and ghost skeptic; and a really appealing heroine. Two, while the novel comes down on one side of the 'issue,' there are parts that kind of pay homage to the darker and more ambiguous side of Turn and makes you get on the side of the author. It's kind of like she winks at you and says 'yes, this story could be told another way, but true love and banana bread are so much more fun.'
I've enjoyed Jennifer Crusie's books in the past, but this one is awful - BORING. It is predictable, unrealistic, cliched. Don't waste your credit.
Loved the narrator for this book. Her voice made me love the small girl in the story. Story was good, liked the characters and could not put it down. Worth the credit.
loved it! Story line was great and the characters were so real. I would listen to this book again.
Angela Dawe rocks as narrator! Having read most of J. Crusie books (all the way back to the Loveswept series), I was puzzled by her foray into the supernatural sphere of ghosts. The book has a little romance, a little supernatural fiction, and a lot of heart! Interesting story line with an incredible narrator in Ms. Dawe. I wish there was a little more romance involved in the story and I would have loved to get to know North a whole lot better. But overall, an enjoyable and fun listen, one I'm sure I'll listen to again and again! Like Alice said it was "Biuuutiful". lol
So happy to have a classic Jennifer Crusie book back again. I read it and then had to listen to it! Oh my, it was wonderful. And the narrator Angela Dawe was spectacular!
The writing was intelligent, quick witted, funny, and senual. I was hooked into the story from the very beginning because it caught my attention. The characters are complicated but I was able to follow. The only suggestion, the male characters should be read by men, not women pretending to be men. It just caught me off guard. Otherwise, I laughed out loud, and really got into the story.
This is my first Audible book and first Jennifer Crusie's book. Great experience!
