    The unrelenting cheer in Fool’s Gold, California, is bringing out the humbug in dancer Evie Stryker. She learned early on that Christmas miracles don’t happen, at least not for her. And this year seems like no exception. An injury has forced her to return to the family fold, no matter that they’re estranged. She won’t add to the awkward scenario by being seduced by the bad-boy charms of her brother’s best friend, the last man she should ever want to date. Even when she’s recruited to stage the Fool’s Gold winter festival, she vows to do as promised, then move forward with her life anywhere but here.

    LIked the characters, and the story was okay. Unfortunately the narrator worked too hard to pronounce every word so clearly that it made for a stiff and unnatural reading.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Story

    So enjoyed listening to this with the different readers -- it really enhanced the story. I don't know if all the main readers have Southern roots but they all had very realistic Southern accents. The only exception was for the scene read by Cassandra Campbell. While she is a wonderful narrator for other books, her attempt at a Southern accent was painful to listen to.

    Story

    It’s Christmastime in London and Rafe Bowman has arrived from America for his arranged meeting with Natalie Blandford, the very proper and beautiful daughter of Lady and Lord Blandford. His chiseled good looks and imposing physique are sure to impress the lady-in-waiting, and if it weren’t for his shocking American ways and wild reputation, her hand would already be guaranteed.

    Story

    The story was okay, but the reader got more grating as the story went on. Her reading of the male voices sounded almost cartoonish at times.

    As Pip unravels the truth behind his own "great expectations" in his quest to become a gentleman, the mysteries of the past and the convolutions of fate through a series of thrilling adventures serve to steer him toward maturity and his most important discovery of all - the truth about himself.

    Enjoyed this audiobook immensely. The narration really adds to the story and the richness of the characters in this classic.
