I am a huge fan of Amanda Quick and have read or listened to all her books.
I could not get use to Justine Eyre's voice. There was a quality about it that bothered me. I have been trying to figure out just what it is that I didn't like. The conclusion I came to was how edgy it was even at times when there was nothing in the story to be edgy about.
I wish Ann Flosnik had read it.
Perhaps this is a technical issue, but chapters 25 to the end of story are missing.
In the maze.
How can I hear the end of the story?
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
In this first book of a new series we meet Evangeline and Lucas and their paranormal mysterious world. It was a most entertaining romance romp that was fun and had both plot and character development.
Plus if you like A.M.'s books (Jayne Ann Krentz) then you'll know what to expect - a good enjoyable listen that was well worth the credit.
I greatly enjoy Amanda Quicks writing. This was no exception. The characters are well developed, the plot is entertaining and has a lot of twists and turns. if you love a romance with a mystery written in the story you are going to enjoy this one.
A very nice reading by a voice actress. I like and love all of Jayne Ann Krentz, Jayne Castle, and Amanda Quick novels. I did not discover her until she had been writing awhile. Now she is a "must buy" for me since I love rereading (or relistening to) all her books. I like that her heroes and heroines are imperfect people (not Prince Charmings and great beauties) because we humans are all imperfect. I like the fact that they are not young adults. I like the fact that her heroines are generally strong women, not weeping pots or clinging vines. I like the witty dialog between characters. I also enjoy the minor characters she adds to her novels. I like her emphasis on loyalty between characters and growing honesty between them as their relationships develop. Her novels always have happy endings. When I am reading or listening for escapism enjoyment, I always require a happy ending. I have a STEM background so I enjoy the sometimes scientific bent of her novels. Even her paranormal novels have a scientific bent. The creepy crystal gardens in this story are an interesting element, a sort of botanical character in the novel. They remind me of the creepy garden in her futuristic paranormal novel titled Zinnia, another favorite ( in print and kindle only--No audio version, alas).
I didn't like the beginning of the book. The author didn't do enough character development to make their behavior plausible. But the book got more interesting as the mystery plot line developed. I probably won't buy another book in the series, though, because the narrator was pretty bad.
The narrator's voice was distracting. Her British accent was so, so bad, and she uses too much vocal fry.
I like Amanda Quick novels and this is another winner! I saw some reviews that were not favorable to the narrator but I thought the narration was excellent. Definitely recommended!
A stereotypical, to the point of sounding satirical, romance story. I was brought to the point of laughing numerous times at the absurdity of the plot and dialog. The breathy, dramatic narration enhanced the feeling of it almost being a satire. I could envision it being played on SNL.
I love a charming romance in the style of Georgette Heyer and Carola Dunn. This is NOT one of those.
It was flat, predictable and with not much substance.
Her voices were a bit much and just out there.
I took advantage of the sale and am sorry I got two of this series....
