It is a good book with a nice story - great for quilting and listening. Thanks to the person who recommended the 1X playback, it really improved the listen.
The Bride Quartet books by Nora Roberts
At regular the performance sounded lazy. The kids voices were irritating and the women's voices were marginal.
This book started off really slow
good, average, performance
I am not sure. this was a good listen in between book but I still prefer this writer as J.D. Robb The In Death series can not be beat!
I would listen to it again because it has a good story line.
It didn't become predictable
I enjoy the love scenes
Couldn't wait to start the 2nd book after finishing this one. Would definitely recommend!
The characters were well defined and really came to life.
I don't think I would listen to it again, but I enjoyed it
I liked all characters, not one in particular. They are all good people, love to live in a small town, looking at everything from the bright side and try to be happy with their loved ones.
He has a good voice but his rythem is so slow I had to speed it to1.5x. I loved the narrator who read Witness from Nora Roberts, she would be my choice,
No, but the book in general had a warm feeling to it.
I mistook my earlier review of The Last Boyfriend as the first in this series. However, my reviews for all three of the books is the essentially the same. I liked them ALL very much and would recommend reading all three in succession, as I did. Most of my comments about this and the other two are covered in my other two reviews. Nora Roberts is a "new" discovery for me, and I enjoy her style and look forward to reading many other of her books.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Maybe if the friend enjoyed over done descriptions of architecture, design, decoration and renovations. The sweet romance is kind of lost in the over all renovation description.
Too many details as described above.
This narrator really did not help - his interpretation of women and children's [whining] voices was especially grating.
I'm glad to have purchased this on sale...not worth a credit, in my opinion.
When the boys got their puppies.
Voice too raspy and whinny. Poor women and kids voices. Not up to par for a Nora Roberts novel.
When Beckett took Clare and the kids to his land and his unfinished house and presented his plan to his new family.
Hope accepting the Innkeeper job on the spur of the moment. Can't wait to get to Book 3 but have to read 2 first.
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.
