NO but he was easy to listen to.
Recommend and I hope this is a series.
Say something about yourself!
I have looked at this book/series several times before purchasing. I'm glad I did. This book is Beckett and Claire's (along with 3 boys) story. Of course they are all super people, beautiful, and everybody's friend. Pretty standard fair.
Many of the reviews disliked the narration by MacLeod Andrews, he was too slow or whatever; I liked him. There were times where I could not tell who said what in conversations because his range isn't extensive, but all in all, I liked him.
I liked the ghost thread that weaves through - I assume - the series. This is NR - and I got the right ending, medium character development, and an enjoyable listen. It was worth the credit, though I think I bought is at one of the Daily Deals, it was definitely worth that.
A really nice story. Lovely romance and three husky admirable brothers. MacLeod Andrews has the most sexy easy voice to listen to. Just love his narration. I would buy any Nora Roberts book narrated by MacLeod in preference to a female voice.
I'm on book 3 of the trilogy and I've enjoyed every bit of it. I listen to them on my drive to and from work. I find myself not minding running errands on the way home or going the back way, just so I can listen to more..the story and characters pull you in, it's a well put together story line and the readers voice is very nice and fits the characters well...the transition is smooth from one book to the next. I don't want it to end! I hope you take a chance on them and enjoy them like I have!
Easy, predictable story, when multi tasking. The narrator was awful. He is fine for the male parts but each female voice sounded like they were a feeble 90 year old.
The female parts were just awful. As stated above, they all sounded like feeble 90 year olds.
The narrator really detracts from the story.
3 out of 5
I didn't like how he portrayed the female characters, or her kids. It was awful, and because of it, I stopped listening about halfway through the book.
I had a few laughing moments in the book, where my co-workers looked at me as if I belonged in the loony bin.
I went into the BoonsBoro Trilogy skeptical, but was pleasantly surprised. The story wasn't her classic "boy-meets-girl" and falls in love romance. This, by far, was my favorite of her books! A hint of mystic, with real life drama, and a little of the "unexpected."
The Garden Trilogy with a hint of mystery, supernatural, and romance.
The "family vision" at the end of the book.
A ready made family.
Tell us about yourself! I am a retired senior who enjoys reading, literally and audibly. I play games on the computer (BFG) and Playstation
I purchased this as a bargain and normally enjoy Nora Roberts Trilogies. The story was the same format as the Chesapeake series.
I had a hard time enjoying the book as the readers voice of the characters was soooooooooooo bad that it interfered with my concentration.
I had reserved the other two books but decided to delete them from my wish list. If I do decide to continue the series I will
buy the Kindle version and read it.
As an architect and builder, and history buff, one would think that I would be engaged by the plot (about restoring a historic inn).
I was not.
I read all the IN DEATH books by the same author, and enjoyed them. Having finished that long long long series, I thought to sample more books by the author - books not involving ghastly murders!
The IN DEATH books grab a reader right away. I kept waiting for THE NEXT ALWAYS to grab me. And waiting. And waiting.
The book was purchased as an audible file for a road trip. Because I had not downloaded another book, I was forced to listen to the VERY tedious and dull details about the inn renovation (ceramic tile is not, in itself, interesting), the tedious and dull details about Clare's life (who wants to hear about vomit and kids peeing?), and a ridiculous plotline about a ghost.
However, I kept thinking that there must something wrong with me. The book was VERY bad, yes, but I kept thinking: this is by a famous author. You enjoyed many of her other books. So I must just be in a weird mood or something.
A little over half-way through the book - an endurance test - I could take no more. Silence proved a blessing.
Later, I read the online reviews about the book version. Nope, it was not just me. This IS a bad book.
(Oddly, the audible reviews mostly lambast the narrator. While he did a poor job with the children’s voices, he was otherwise fine.)
I love Nora Roberts series. Her books are always entertaining and if placed in a foreign country, the narrator's accent is right on.
