The wife and I have purchased and listened to over 300 audio books together. This is the only one I have listened to more than twice. Even good books can be killed by a narator. This one has it all. 6 stars out of 5.
Always like listening to Nora Roberts books because I can get the mystery along with the romantic live story together!! This one was particularly good in the way the characters were developed each with a unique personality the narrator did a great job showing. A little twist in the ending made this a wonderful listen to accompany housework, sewing or cooking.
I love Nora Roberts and this book is one of her best IMO. The romance was sweet & tender. Most of the characters were lovable. The bad guys were bad but not unbelievable.
Julia Whelan was exceptional in her performance. I never once had to guess which character was speaking. She did great performing the young Liz & then the adult Liz (Abigail) too. Her performance here definitely help bring out each character's personality.
While the story is not entirely credible, it's not completely unbelievable. The story was entertaining.
Interesting enough story, but the main character Elizabeth is incredibly annoying and far too unrealistic even for her sheltered personality. It was difficult getting through the whole book when Elizabeth was speaking.
As always, Nora Roberts delivers a spell binding mystery with a great ending. Get it. You won't be disappointed.
I live in CA where the traffic is a nightmare. It could take 90 mins to get to my location when it should have only taken 25 mins. Audible!
The narrator helped the story flow. This was a long book, yet the time went quickly. I appreciated that I was able to jump right into the story ( engaging) and that my attention was kept throughout. This is my first Nora Roberts book but will not be my last.
