I love all of these characters and wanted to see them all come full circle - and Nora Roberts did it beautifully! Like so many who reviewed the first in the series, Vision in White, the narrator did not vary the voices at all and I agree that the lisp was in all of the characters and was very distracting. Angela Dawe, however, who narrated the following 3 books was wonderful!
Loved them all!
All of the voices were very distinct - even her male characters sounded male (not always easy for women to accomplish). She also infused so much life and varying emotions into each one so that I actually felt what they were feeling! Of course, having Nora Roberts flesh them all out so completely has to help a good narrator.
Parker because she is organized like I am, and yet (with the help of her Tums) is able to go with flow - she doesn't lose it when faced with the many problems that arise in putting on weddings.
I think this would make a great TV series - even a 69-year old woman like me - married to a terrific guy for 45 years - enjoys a good wedding, complete with some bridezillas, take-charge mothers, feuding among wedding party members, the endless potential for drama. Even if it starts with all of the ladies already married, the way these couples communicate and are always there for each other is something that would be refreshing for young girls and women to see!
This whole series is great I loved everyone.
Parker and her strong personality
Angela Dawe is a great reader and I like all her character voices
Final in the series all are great.
Parker was my favourite character and it was fitting that her story was the final one in the series to tie them all together.
Audio Book Junkie!
I love books in series. You get to feeling like family with the characters. When I finished Happy Ever After - I was so sad that my involvement with these amazing women was over. I wanted more. :) It is a series that I recommend with all of my romantic bones! It is a story of the enduring power of friendship and love.
... yet still enjoyable. Wouldn't work as a stand alone novel, however, in combination with the other books it's OK. Easy listening and good narration.
Ah....the excitement of it all and how each book flowed to the next one. I want to read more..... the weddings for each one and the stories that are intertwined with the events. How friends really know each other and are there for one another.
Each book provides an inside/history of the characters and how they fit. I liked all the characters because they add to the story and no one character takes over they all provide detail and flavor
When Parker realized she wanted more, that she wanted what she helped provide.
When the accident had more meaning for Mel and brought out feelings and thoughts that were hidden. Also helped to understand why to some of the questions.
