Great story with wonderful narration--kudos to MacLeod Andrews!!
It was simply fabulous, and with a ghost! Enough interaction between brothers, in addition to the love interest, that I can share it w/my husand -- I think he will enjoy it, too! There is never a dull moment -- held my interest all the way through! OK, I just realized this account is in my husband's name, so that sounds a bit weird -- I'm female (in case anyone noticed or cares -- just clarifying).
Ahh, the very impressive manner in which the ghost gets Beckett's attention and gives him her most important message! Although, the book and the narration bring every scene to life, and there are lots of great ones -- the boys w/the dogs; the boys, Beckett and Claire on Halloween, I could go on and on...
The ending, of course! Beautifully written and narrated. It brought tears to my eyes.
This is only my second book on CD; and, as I said, MacLeod Andrews really did an outstanding narration -- really brought each character and the story to life. OK, you've done it -- I'm hooked on books on CD. I hope I can find another by MacLeod Andrews.
Say something about yourself!
Among the pleasant, chic audios.
I like the description of the details of the wood, tiles etc.
Excellent influnction of the characters, rather, men, women or children.
Not extreme, just pleasant.

Predictable but fun story line. Nora Roberts love story developed well.
Kids and female voices utterly spoiled; please Nora this narrator does not suit your fanciful, lighthearted stories.
I loved this audio and can't wait for Book 2. Nora Roberts does it again with this trilogy. You won't be sorry with this one.
As always, Nora Roberts is an entertaining writer but the naration was distracting from the storyline. He portrayed the women as brainless even when the situation was serious. His tone was a contadiction to the visual picture of Mrs. Roberts story. If he is narrating the next two books, I'll pass.
i'm Nora FAN I read both genera es that she writes in she makes you fall in love with love. Makes you believe that there are still good guys out there. Nice guys are still are out there,
Another great book in another great series.
I was a little surprised by the use of a male narrator, with no female counterpart to give the story some flare.
Great premise for the 3 male characters, somewhat along the lines of the 4 gal pals who ran the wedding business, only these guys run a construction company. Ryder sure could have used a little tweaking in his attitude, but that surly type does appeal to some women.
Beckett is the type of guy that every girl longs to find, and Owen well he's just too busy managing everything else to have time to manage his own love life.
I'm certainly looking forward to the next book in this series. Now that I've gotten used to the narrator, who by the way has a very nice voice, I hope they'll use him again next time around.
Good, but predictable.
The narrator completely runined the female voices - he just could not make them believable. I hope books 2 & 3 have a different narrator!
It was a good, comfy story, although not one of Nora Robert's best. It's almost like she was phoning it in. Still, her phoning it in is better than many writers' best efforts. I'll get the next two stories when they come out.
The plot may be a bit predictable BUT the characters are delightful---and doesn't everyone want life to have a happy ending... Book 2 isn't due out until July 2012...MUCH too long to wait!
Though the story is enjoyable, did not like narration. A male voice reading female romance novel, as well as trying to mimic female and children's voices was quite annoying at times.
