Grace and the doctor were both written so realistically that I enjoyed every minute of the story. Poor Grace was like a fish out of water when she had moved across country to take a job that turned out to be awful. She supported herself by taking various odd jobs whether she was good at them or not. I loved her spunk and optimistic attitude. The doctor had the weight of the world on his shoulders with a paraplegic young sister, a five year old son, his work in the ER and being sole owner of a small town clinic. Somehow these two found each other and fell in love despite the odds.
I loved Grace because she was a survivor and didn't realize how she was making a place for herself in the small town. She stood up for herself, took responsibility and didn't back down from anything.
Her voice was very pleasant and kept the different characters as individuals.
It just tickled me all over!
I love Jill Shalvis' books. Some are better than others, but they are all good reading.
This book never really got off the ground for me. Normally Johanna Lindsay's books grab you and pull you into the story completely, but this book had way too many soon-forgotten characters and dull dialogue. I listened to it the whole way and there were a few chapters that were better than the rest. I'd recommend you skip this one and go onto one of her other novels.
This book was probably written over 20 years ago, but it still resonates as an overall heartwarming, captivating time travel love story.
The first part of the story really aggravated me as the heroine was treated so badly and was being blatantly used her by current lover. Nobody could be that blind! His bratty daughter was the icing on the cake and I almost gave up on this book because of how they walked all over her. But once the time traveling hero appeared, I couldn't stop listening to it.
Ms. Deveraux did her research on medieval life and did a great job on how a 16th century man would see 20th century England and vice versa with the heroine.
The author takes you on a great journey with the hero/heroine, across 4 centuries. Douglass, the heroine manages to find love twice, as well as self-respect by the end of the novel. The ending was not what I expected, but was just delightful and heart-warming. A thoroughly enjoyable 16 hours of listening pleasure!
No, there are other good books out there to listen to by Victoria Dahl. The story dragged and was depressing and irritating more than uplifting.
The least interesting part was the tension between the two brothers, Eric and Jamie. I didn't really like either one of them. I think they both needed intense therapy.
No, not at all. Not even a Lifetime movie.
The narrator does a good job, but in this particular book, it wasn't good enough to hold my interest.
If you can overlook the terrible narration, this story might actually be interesting. I was so distracted by the speech pattern of Montana Chase that I couldn't keep my concentration on what was happening with the story line. After an hour of listening, I finally gave up and quit. Don't waste your money or your credit on this one.
Get a better narrator. I may download this book on Amazon kindle and read it, I just cannot listen to it any longer.
Her speech pattern and her voice sounds too old to be speaking these parts. She has a terrible habit of drawing out the first word or two in a sentence much longer than the rest of the sentence. There's not much emotion in the speaking parts and it almost sounds like an automated voice. I couldn't tell who was speaking unless the author actually wrote it into the story.
I don't know - I didn't get far enough to answer this.
If I see Montana Chase is narrating any other books, I will definitely move on past them.
I normally love Susan Mallery books, but the story line was so implausible in this book that I just couldn't get into it from the start. And the narrator's voice just added to the awfulness of this audiobook. Her breathiness and inflection was irritating. Don't bother with this book.
