Love dogs, music, books, travel. Listen mostly in the car. Like thrillers, comedy, history, bios, romance, self-help, spirituality, how-to.
A feel-good story, predictable but with the right amount of wit and romance to keep the interest. The characters are likeable and the reader makes them come alive. Good for relaxing at home or on holidays.
Predictable story, and a lot naive...but narrator made the story and characters come to life in a special way. Without Ms. Whelan's interpretation and portrayal of characters, the story would have been overwhelmed by "cheesy".
What a great study of human nature. Loved and believed almost every character in the book. Great story. Fell in love with the heroine from page one. The lovechild mother and rich kid's father were a bit much. Definitely a female POV, but I think it helped me understand and respect, no, make that marvel and cherish the female of our spaces. Five stars and well deserved.
I admit, I used to be a Nora Roberts fan but then the books just seemed to be the same book over and over with different character names. I picked this one up on sale because I wasn't willing to part with a whole credit on the chance this might be different. I'm glad I did and would have spent a credit on it. The story was detailed and the main character Elizabeth, grew and changed from experiences. It was not incredibly suspenseful. You could pretty much guess what was coming but it was still a nice light listen and entertaining. If I can find more like this, I would go back to spending credits on her books versus just waiting for them to go on sale.
