I have only listened to the audio so I couldn't say.
The girl's mother trying to take her out of witness protection. So cold.
The raspberry vinegar discussion
The main character reminds me of Temprance Brennam from Bones. Her wording and phrasing made me laugh. It was an interesting story. A fun listen.
SOOOOOO good. I finished it in 2 days. EXCELLENT narration! I loved everything about this story. My first Nora Roberts book, but not my last. You won't be disappointed.
this was my first Nora Roberts book, I would recomment this audion book to anyone
It was an interesting story with a lot of moving parts and characters. Somewhat unique character in the heroine, and a very loveable love story.
That the heroine was unabashedly smart, and that her intelligence was part of the humor (and the romance)
Performance was lovely and consistent
The Struggle of Innocence
In a Genre that strives to be clever, this one is clever in it's about face.
If you want to get away and you want to use Nora Roberts this is the book.
Her reading skills
When they fell in love.
I like the characters so much I wished this was one of her trilogy books. But atlas it is not. So I guess I have to use my own imagination to see what comes next.
I am a fan of JD Robb books, but don't always love all the Nora Roberts novels as much. I thought this one was one of the better ones. I think the narrator had a huge part in that, but just the way Nora wrote Abigail's character made her really interesting. Maybe part of me was liking her so much because she reminded me of Bones, although not exactly the same personality. Both characters are brilliant, yet socially inept and so literal that jokes or expressions often go over their heads. However, unlike Bones, I find Abigail more vulnerable - even as tough and strong and capable as she has learned to be. Didn't she just need a hug so badly? And didn't you just want to be one of the special few allowed to pet her dog without getting your arm ripped off?
I am so impressed with how Julia Whelan narrated both the main characters' voices, but mainly Abigail's. I think she used just the right tone and expression for all her dialogue. As for Brooks, I enjoyed her portrayal of him most when he was laughing at or just charmed by Abigail's eccentricities. The story itself was pretty good, although not too suspenseful, compared to some similar storylines. The characters and the setting really were what made this book worth listening to. The descriptiveness of the town made me want to move there myself. Am I now a huge Nora Roberts fan? - well maybe a little more than before. But as for Julia Whelan, I am going to have to look into some of her other books now. Maybe I have found a new favourite narrator.
I don't recall if I've ever read a Nora Roberts book before, but I'm not a fan. The story grabbed me right away, and the narrator is a large reason why. Her narration made me feel each character, including the male voices. The very beginning (and I won't write a spoiler) had me sitting in a parking lot, and listening...wondering what would happen. The romance part was very transparent. Abigail is so darn "Dr. Spock-ish" with her logical mind, but I found her endearing. The end was just a tad bit of a letdown-- I felt it was also predicable, yet I found the entire story to be engrossing enough that I found myself cleaning my house a lot more thoroughly than normal, because I just didn't want to stop listening.
This isn't a fair answer, since I won't read the print version, but I can't imagine it could be as good as Julia Whelan's performance. This is a challenging book to narrate, and Julia gets accents, personality, and emotions with such accuracy it enhances a wonderful story.
In a book filled with drama and action, I loved best the discourse between Brooks and Abigail as he patiently but relentlessly draws her out of her protective shell.
I haven't listened to other Julia Whalen performances but I immediately did a search for her other work to see if there were any appealing stories. I sure hope to hear more of her work in the future.
Nora Roberts has an unparalleled writing career so it might seem hyperbole to say this s one of her best books, but that's how it is for me. The writing frequently invoked laughter.
The Witness was awesome! This is an intrigueing book with suspence and romance. I love how smart and independent Abigail is. The Witness is very entertaining! I never wanted to pause it!
Yes, from the first few minutes into it had me wondering what was going to happen next!
She's a great narrator! She had the perfect voice for this book.
I most definately kept wishing I had the time to listen to the whole thing all the way through.
