I love this book. The story was interesting. It was cute and had the scorned past of one of the main characters. I think the author described her characters well but left some room for mystery about them to figure them out as the book goes on.
I haven't listened to Paula Costello before, but I fell in love with this book because of her voice. The way she transitions between an English speaking American girl to a Scottish accent for both men and women is amazing. I would definitely read whatever she narrates. I also enjoyed how she puts character behind her voice. Some narrators just speak the words and I find that boring she makes it sound how I would expect someone to speak in a conversation and that made the book flow even better.
Paula Costello has just become my favorite narrator. Her accents are luscious and she gives each character a believable persona. Her voice is clear her narration definitely adds to a great story.
Everything! The story is good, characters are believable, conversation real and funny and narration is EXCELLENT!
Well Joslyn was my favorite character. She's a strong heroine with a mind of her own, even if her mind needs some help from the good doctor. But Braden's accent and his strong, dominant, caring personality is certainly my dream guy. I'd be melting if I listened to a guy with that burr too.
It made me laugh out many times. The back and forth between Jos and Braden is pretty funny.
Joss, the main character is an enraging mixture of pain and hardheadedness that makes you want to punch her and give her a hug at the same time. I loved the characters and how Edinburgh is described - almost making you feel like you've settled in cozily. It is a passionate and emotional story which I recommend to anyone who wants a beautiful, solid romance.
Loved it. Loved Paula Costello, too bad it's the only book I can find that she's done. She brought the characters alive for me and I'm listening to it the second time around. Great sex.
No, I wanted to stretch it out so it wouldn't end.
Yes Great Author and the narrator was perfect! Please bring her back for book 3!
I loved how Brayden chased her! It was a breath of fresh air compared to other storieS about desperate single women stalking guys.
It' a toss up between Joss and Brayden
Paula Costello come back!
oh yes...the development of the main characters was very good
Jocelyn losing her family so young.....grief and pain took her to dublin street, Scotland to find love and healing
very good scottish accent
When Braden sister became ill.....it shows when someone get sick it affect everyone...and how important and precious our lives are to the people who loves us
losing the people we love brings grief and pain....we have to continue living .. hope each person get a Braden who is patient and loving to help us see a future....life is very fragile
Without a doubt. I didn't know what to expect from this book but once I started I couldn't stop listening.
It was so refreshing. I felt like I was really listening to something original.
I'd say the scene where a certain someone gets caught streaking through the house, lol.
The book was full of emotion but I didn't have an extreme reaction.
I haven't read the print version but I love hearing accents as they are meant to be spoken, and I think the narrator did an excellent Scottish brogue!
I liked the character buildup.
The protagonist, Joss, was the best, because she was snarky and sassy and vulnerable all in one, but I loved the Scottish crew as well, because she was very good at the accent.
Not really, I love the romance but was frustrated by the main character. I was, however, appreciative that she also recognized her stupidity, which made her a bit more palatable for me.
Being a mom, career woman & student (again) I don't have time to read and miss it. Driving to/from work/school is now fun thanks to audible!
I tried, really, to get through a good chunk of chapters to see what all the commotion was about for this book. Then I had to fast forward for it was not the best romantic book I've ever read. Love scenes weren't that steamy either.
Taking a break from my usually sleuth-books, I downloaded this American in Scotland story. The performance from Paula Costello was spectacular, switching in and out of a brogue that was spot on! The story was fairly predictable but spicy enough to keep me curious about the next twist. Entertaining, if not especially complicated.
