A different narrator
I enjoy Nora Roberts, but I will never listen to this narrator again. I read the text version instead. It wasn't one of her best works, but I couldn't get through more than a chapter with the narrator. He set my teeth on edge.
In a book that is predominantly about women, having a narrator whose falsetto makes the women seem simpering and ridiculous is offensive and unpleasant. There are other male narrators who can alter their voice to distinguish the different characters without having that negative effect.
She relies a bit too much on sociopaths of one variety or another. I could have done without that bit of plot entirely.
Loved the history, antiques, romance and ghost involvement. Couldn't wait to get the next book.
I'm addicted to Audible. May need an intervention!
I loved the entire trilogy, including the narration. OK, maybe the first few pages of the first book are too slow, but after that, it's great. If you like Nora Roberts, you won't be disappointed. I wish there were more than3 books in this series!
I guess I differ from many of the others who hated the narration. I actually enjoyed it. I thought Andrews did a fantastic job and added to the experience of reading the book. Yes, it was a bit slow but I liked that. It felt right for a book about a small town. Things just happen a little slower in small towns they don't feel as rushed. I would also rate his ability to do different voices higher than some other narrators. The characters all had a distinct sound and I appreciated that. (Especially his narration of Murphy and the boys.)
I liked Andrews' narration, particularly the differences between the brothers and the children. I could picture adorable little Murphy.
I don't think I'd listen to it again. I have the next two books to help keep me informed about the characters in this book.
Bechet wasmy favorite. He was so good with the kids and you never felt like he wanted just Claire and not the whole package
I think a sign of a good reader is when you don't notice that they're there. They are just part of the story that keeps things moving.
No. I listen in my car and don't usually listen at home.
You always know you'll have a happy ending with a Nora Roberts book and that's not suvh a bad thing.
As truck drivers my husband and i listen as we drive. This entire series is fantastic. The characters are amusing, touching, and truly unforgettable. Normally, once I hear a book, it takes a while before I am ready to listen to it again. This series however, I find myself re-listening the next day while he's driving instead of going to sleep as I should, and laughing out loud again, even though I just listened to it the night before.
Boonsboro, the small town in Maryland has both male and female characters who are strong successful individuals, yet vulnerable in their own ways. Nora Roberts always entertains, but this series may become my all time favorite of hers (which in the past was the In Death series she writes under JD Robb). Don't miss the fun nor the ghost in Inn Boonsboro as the Montgomery boys meet their individual matches, in women, dogs, and kids.
And as Hope says in the final book of this series, what women wouldn't want to grow up to be Justine Montgomery, the mother and driving force of the Montgomery clan.
The engagement with the boys
I do not think so.
Same as "Memorable Moments"
A little predictable. And was different for Nora Roberts. I liked it and was left with wanting to listen to the other two books. Which I will do soon.
Yes, Story kept you wanting to listen for the end.
What was Lizzy going to do nest?
none, love the narrator,
I am not 1 to see a movie after reading or listening to a book. Movie always makes me upset. Never like the book.. Book is always better.
It's definitely a 4-5 ranking of keeping my attention to the story and the variety of characters.
Definitely the steamy love-making and the ghost on the third floor of the Inn.
Restoring an antique inn isn't the only thing needed restoring. A certain spirit helps bring old friends together in a steamy romance.
Not fast pasted. But the love stories were really great. I listened to all three books in a row.
I really liked all three and the characters are all really likeable.
