I've read all of her Julie Garwood's legal stories and have loved all of them. Waiting on the next so that I can download.
This book kept me laughing and sometimes sad, intermittently. I know some like the graphic sex parts, but I think a little mystery there is better. However the overall story was very well put. Besides those of us who like Julie Garwood, knows she is a consummate story teller. Well worth the listen, also.
Good enough to buy, but not good enough to be at the top of my favorites, or in my favorites.
The relationship seemed very realistic, the plot not so much but the relationship could have been real.
Yes it kept me on the edge I couldn't figure out the ending way before it happened, which is unusual for me.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
good old fashion wit, and sexy flirtatious dialogue. Garwood's old humor comes out!
I have made up excuses to stay in the car so I can listen longer. This is light listening and a good show of a group of girls/ladies who have stuck by each other. Ms Dawe is not a new reader. She does tend to up turn her voice at the end of some sentences, but her fast pace makes up for this. Great for a long drive. You must be an Garwood fan of her contemporary stories. I have purchased Sizzle and I am only on chapter 4 on this book. I wanted to give Garwood fans a brief report.
yes.The book is enough different from all the ones out there that it was a nice change .
no favorite .Liked many for their differences.
I did listen to it in one and also bought the kindle version and will read it in the future or maybe listen and read .
Just a nice book that kept my interest .For hours..I miss it now that I'm finished which means the characters made a connection .
Of course I would reccomend it. It keeps you guessing til the end.
The most memorable moment was when Olivia gets shot.
My favorite seen was the beginning on how the pips were in the hopsital.
A good book makes you laugh and cry. I laughed out loud and teared up as well.
It is a good book and great performance.
Not necessarily better, but certainly no worse either.
The intro grabbed my attention and the relationship between the 4 sisters of circumstance held promise that was fulfilled in this book and, I trust, in 3 more focusing on the remaining "sisters." And the male lead was pretty much irresistible.
I enjoyed her interpretations and characterizations.
Honor Before Blood
It was pretty unbelievable than family members could be so oblivious and ignorant to blame the lead character for the sins of the father. Willful blindness only goes so far. Many of these interactions in the book just didn't ring as true as Garwood's writing normally does.
Can't even listen to the story cause I can't get past the voice. I love Julie's books and Angela Dawe just ruined it for me. I don't know if I can continue to listen it hurts my ears.
Loose Angela Dawe
If I could return it I would.
I will all ways get a Julie Garwood novel, she writes a good story and can make me laugh out loud. Sometimes I laugh because I can finish the lines for her. But this narrator is horrible, I could do better myself. As the story went on I kept thinking she would get better...she didn't. If I see any books Narrated by Angela Dawe again I'll be reading it myself.
While the preface wasn't believable, it was fun and I liked it. Chapter one was also worth several grins, although for me the narrator (who can, bless her heart, do humor) puts the emphasis in, for me, unlikely places. I find myself repeating the phrases to figure out why they didn't 'work'. But then, it wasn't distracting enough to make me stop listening.
If you've read Julie Garwood before, you know what to expect, and you'll get it in this book. It doesn't feel phoned in and, while I may not listen to it again any time soon, it wasn't a waste of time or money, either.
