I listened to it on fast just to get it over with. The characters weren't at all believable to me. Also, yeah, you figure out who done it pretty quick. I think Nora just fell off my auto buy list.
I have already listened to it 3 times. Even knowing the ending, The way the story twists and turns makes me want to listen again and again!
The love story between Abra and Eli.
Hester - Grandmother to Eli.
I wish I could have listened in one sitting. Listened to some at work - hated it when someone would ask a question and I had to pause the book.
Totally addicted to Audible.
I won't disagree that this is not Nora Roberts' best but I always enjoy characters that overcome their circumstances. Narrator was not my favorite but not detracting either.
Basically it's unbelievable. Roberts must have had a great massage and thought describing it was enough. Characters not interesting.
No, but narration was Ok . You can't do much with a boring book
happily ever afters
The story could easily have been told in 10 hours by a better narrator.
Far too much was said/done that didn't propel the story forward in a timely manner.
Wouldn't you know one of the few times I find a male narrator who can successfully pull off a female voice is a dud as a hero. Where are James Daniels, Jack Garrett, Steve West & Dennis Boutsikaris when you need them?
While several scenes differed in setting, their purpose ended in the same results - more of the same. Thereby the story didn't progress fast enough.
A good audio book has me glued to my audio device, absolutely can't miss a word. Meaning I've got to stop/start & some times back up because our home sweet home runs like Grand Central Station. But when I can leave the room for a snack or prepare for bed, including an arsenal of miracle promising potions, while the book plays on and on, return to discover I haven't missed a thing, then this isn't a good story.
The family story was intriguing.
No, the females voices were terrible. Just couldn't connect to it.
This was the second time I listened to this book, as the book was retooled with another reader. If this was supposed to be better, then they missed the mark. I much prefer the first rendition!
This story had me at the beach setting and kept me with its delightful main characters.
The reader excellently portrayed local accents, moods and humor. He made me feel like I was there.
I'll recommend this title to all of my reading friends. (With a warning about bedroom nuances )
I loved this. it was a great story and the narrator brought it to life. It was very easy to tell which character was speaking. Recommended
