this was a great read very romantic great plot wonderful distinction and the characters and sexy too
it was very easy to turn back on everyday. towards the end I did get a little suspicious and was surprised at the ending
Just a woman with an unhealthy addiction to literature, the beach and a ice cold drink.
If all her plots were more researched. Feels like she is getting lazy as she's using nearly exactly the same formula and recycling plot lines of many of her books. I really used to like her, but please, oh please... never use the quote "Dumb as a box of hair" again. She has used this eloquent quote in several books now. There are many more insulting comments she could use, trust me, I'm a teacher.
Feels like she is recycling plot lines. Its all sounding the same. Literally, all female characters have a difficult past, overcoming a current insecurity, happen to be thin and beautiful, horribly opinionated and quite stupid. The guys all happen to be good, stand up men who are going through personal crisis and usually both charachters 'take the law into theie own hands' as they forgo common sense and 'risk it all' for love. All that changes is charachter name, career, a few personal details and location. Otherwise, its a fill in the blank template.
He's not so bad, but a woman for a womans voice would be nice. But its just obvious hes trying his best, but, even he sounded bored in some parts of the script.
I would eliminate innane comments, which make up half the book. They are stumbling blocks over the stoeyline and what makes the story sound repetitive. I like the old man at the bar, it was a nice character who had just enough 'screen time' to make a scene interesting, provide key information, gave meat to the story, and mentioned in passing before disappearing. The rest of charachters are waaaay to chatty and overthink a situation.
Nora does have a way with words, she can make a descriptive scene but bogged down by her past plot lines. Can you get a woman who is in her forties, a little soft, tired and has a intersting backstory but is revitalized by love, personal transformation, not trying to solve a puzzle but gets swept up in getting involved with life, finds new goal, happiness in achieving and finding the guy? Her target audience is getting older, and kinda tired of reading about mid twenties love stories. Life gets more complicated and interesting after forty anyways.
I like historical novels.
Yes, I would recomend this book to friends. I felt like I was there at Whiskey Beach and I exploring the Bluffs - and trying to figure out who was threatening it.
The last part when Eli & Abba were waiting to confront the threat.
Good page turning book to listen to.
The female narration sounds like a cartoon drag queen. It was distracting from the story.
Very disappointing. I have listened to a number of N Roberts audible books and enjoyed them. The narrator on this was terrible. The heroine sounds like Mrs. Doubtfire. I couldnt get into the story because I couldnt get over that narration. What a waste of money.
I always enjoy Nora's books. She has likable characters and well-plotted stories. The narrator has a smooth voice for Ely, but his voice for Abra is not even close to believable. I liked the story anyway.
I am retire, love to read
Re write the book
Maybe, I will think about it for now on
The only good voice was Eliad
