I tried, I really tried. I even restarted it a couple of times, but this book was not funny, it was not entertaining, and it was not intriguing. Sorry Ms. Rowling, I know you can do much better, but this one is a stinker.
The characters here were just not interesting enough to care about
There wasn't a favorite scene, they were all boring
sorry, but no

I think the title is good, why change it
The characters really draw you in. The narrator does a really good job at matching the voice to fit the characters. I hated to put it down and looked forward to getting back to the story.
Grandma. She was the center and the reason for the story. I would jump on the chance to hear her story in full detail, starting when she was a little girl and following her whole life.

Cory, when we find out why he did what he did.
Maybe yes. There was enough here to make me think that her work has the possibility to evolve into bigger and better stories. After-all, even my favorite authors have written some stories that are not on my "favorite stories" list. This one was not that exciting for me. I love a good Highlander story. But, I didn't really get into these characters. The narration probably had a lot to do with it, but it wasn't one of those stories that I couldn't wait to get back to.
This was the first Vonda Sinclair book I listened to.
The main male character's voice didn't fit him. It was all rough and gruff without any of that sexy brutish appeal that I like to hear from a strong male character. While the "villain" was supposed to be this heart-stealing, sought-after bachelor guy, that had the female main character's heart and affection (before he showed his true colors), but the voice used made him sound like a sniveling weakling - I just could buy that she would have fallen for him in the first place.
It is advertised as book one, but I will most likely veer away from book two if it is a continuation of this story and had the same style of narration. I think this narrator is capable of doing better, but then not everybody can nail it every time. He did have a good accent, a good voice, but the voices he chose for the main characters missed the mark for me.
Hard work and countless hours goes into writing and producing a final offering. I appreciate Vonda's efforts and hope that this critique doesn't come across as mean spirited or petty, that was not my intention. Down the road, I'll look her up again.
I liked the story very much. The only downside to the audible version was I couldn't understand the narrator when he did Lily's voice-making it hard to imagine her as a
I like stories about highlanders, what else can I say!
