It's pretty close to the top ~ it's a little soft around the edges, but Nora's trilogy's tend to be, so I expect that. I still love her writing no matter what ~ but this one was so focused on Boonesboro & the rebuilding of the town it was interesting, but almost edged out the rest of the story.
Lizzy, the ghost. I loved the whole back story there.
Ha. When Hope sprayed Ryder with the water hose! Loved it.
Hmmm...I did when Ryder dreamed about Billy's death. Broke my heart.
Again, Nora writes an amazing story ~ so when I rate this a 4, it's still made of awesome, just not my very favorite by her, and that's just because I tend to like her grittier books better, lol. The narrator for this book was excellent, he did an amazing job w/ the characters, and I loved, loved the whole thread of the ghost and her search for her lost love ~ and how it was tied up in a neat little bow in this book.

Yes because the story has such natural character development and the underlying story line about the Lizzie the ghost is captivating and how she works her way to become part of the family leaves you wanting more.
I like how Nora Roberts surprises you at the ghost's connection with the family and weaves her history into the family's story today.
His voice is perfectly paced. He never has a problem giving characters different voices in fact he is the best I've listened to after more than 20 audiobook purchases. He is not slow. He is not fast.
Looking for someone to read you a story and speak the quotes in the book like they are actually sounding like conversation? Cloud is your voice. He doesn't deliver lines like he is reading. He delivers it as if he is talking exactly what other narrators should do.
I cried when Ryder has his moment and that's all I can say without give the book away.
what a great ending to a great trilogy, never disappointed in anything that Nora writes
Say something about yourself!
It must be so fulfilling to share these wonderful stories with so many people. I enjoyed each in this series but she saved the best for last. It had so much humor in it....I laughed out loud alot. It was charming and you completed Lizzie so well. A solid 10 on all counts as far as I am concerned.
NRoberts writes the stories that I go to for a second or third or more listen more than any other author. She has the ability to take us out of our lives and into a lovely place. She is a gifted writer. I look forward to your future books.
I love this narrator....I find his voice smooth and calming. Involving without being jarring.
Pretty close to the top!
The graveyard scene toward the end.
Really good interpretation of different voices. And, the exact replica of emotion!
I abso-poso-tively Cried!!!!
Great series - Nora rocks again!!
I love this series. I wish they didn't have to end. A perfect mix of love, turmoil, indecision.... just a really good listen. The whole series was
I absolutely loved it--wish she had introduced a cousin or other relative to continue the series. I most definitely will listen again. Good story with a little suspense!!
I think the narrator has become one of the favorite readers of women's romance books. You could hear the difference in the voices of the characters.
One Excellent Story
The two moments when Lizzy appeared and spoke with them. It sent chills down my spine.
I loved this whole series. Not only did we have the storyline of the 3 brothers and their women, we had another story of Lizzy and her Billy. I found myself wanted to read the books nonstop because I was so interested in both stories. I only wish that when Lizzy and Billy were reunited, it would have been more detailed. I would have certainly cried if Nora Roberts would have done into more detail and gave them a more thought out reunion.
I enjoyed this series alot! Fell in love with the brothers and enjoyed each of their stories. Roberts writing is infused with equal amounts of humor, sexy scenes, and interesting characters. It would be hard to pick a favorite character since as the series go one comes to love them all.
It's a light series, not too deep, but interesting enough to keep me listening way too late at night.I would definitely recommend the three books.
Predictable, Honest, and Mirthful
The remainder of the trilogy creates the same feel-good mood.
I like it when Lizzie lock the doors on them both, forcing them to see each other for who they really are to one another.
There is no running away from love, it perseveres.
If you want a pleasant escape from the harsh realities, then take a trip to Inn Boonsboro in Maryland.
