I love witty, fast-paced books that keep you turning the page.
As noted in other reviews, the narrator nearly ruins this book with his incredibly plodding performance. His child voices are painful to listen to, and his adult voices difficult to distinguish. If I hadn't already downloaded all three books, I would have returned this one and just read them on my Kindle. Fortunately, another review suggested listening to it in 1 1/2 speed. Thank you! At this speed, it sounded like a normal audiobook so I was able to block out the poor voices and enjoy the story. I was trained in architecture, so I enjoyed the detailed descriptions of the Inn and its renovation. As in most of NR's books, it was easy to like the characters and chuckle at their idiosyncrasies. The love story was nicely woven into the backdrop, and was very believable since Claire and Becket had known each other for decades. Overall a very pleasant book that left a smile on my face and had me looking forward to the next in the series.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I have never read the print version.
The ghostly writing....
I have not listened to a narrator that I did not like or grow to like as the story progressed.
I am anxious to listen to the 2nd and 3rd books of the trilogy.
Characters worked together well.
He changed his voice to imitate the characters very well!
The ending made me cry. They made a very good couple.
Good story. I really enjoyed it.
H.E.L.L. no! The way he voiced the children was CREEPY!!
PLEASE get rid of this narrator. He is not suited for romances. Maybe a mystery novel with no child characters would be more appropriate for him.
These reviews are done by his wife :)
Story was ok
Not as good as other Nora books
He does a TERRIBLE voice for women and kids
story makes it worth it
Don't keep this narrator for romance!
Interesting twist having the guy side of the story along with the ladies. Usually, just from the female character's perspective. Fun. Good humor.
voice is easy to listen to. Maybe not all of his "whiney kid" voices but most of the rest.
Outright chuckle at some of the true to life comments of a couple of characters.
Probably about an 8
The end was good
Have only lisrened to three. Rates very good.
Not one special moment,
A little unrealistic but a good listen. After all it is fiction.
No, his attempt at women and children's voices was like chalk on a blackboard.
The sameness as her other books.
As stated above.
Awful! Awful! Awful! It's hard to enjoy a romantic story when the narrator can only o manly voice!
I wasted my money buying the trilogy when the narrator is the same or all three books.
Great love story
The love and friendship relations between all the characters
He did an okay job on the women voices. However loved the men voices.
Yes,it made me laugh and cry.
I love Nora Roberts books. She's a wonderful author!!
