I love this book and have a hard copy, but like to listen to them on my commute and during my workouts. It is a wonderfully sweet story. I love Janette Oke. However, I have to say that I believe the narrator was a mistake. She has a somewhat grating voice and she sounds very old, while the character in the story is a young woman. Very disconcering. I think this one is better read than listened to.
Mo meets match.
Lula is my favorite character. She has spunk and makes me laugh.
I would listen to another book by CJ Critt. She has an older, possibly smokers voice and I don't think it fits Stephanie's character very well, but she does a decent job. Her voices for the other characters aren't bad. I have listened to the other books in the series that she has done and I don't feel it detracts from the story.
No. I enjoyed the book, but I didn't need to listen to it all in one sitting. It was enjoyable, but not riveting.
This is a fun addition to the Stephanie Plum series. It's worth a listen.
I like this series and would say that listening to this story made my commute more enjoyable.
This is one of the weaker books. The plot was ok but the book was long and I felt the overall story of Kaylin hardly progressed at all. Compared to earlier books it felt less polished.
KH usually does a smashing job of nailing all the character voices but at the end of this book she started confusing the characters and using the wrong voices for characters she has nailed in the past. It was confusing because I am used to certain voices for certain characters.
If this were a movie I would like to see it.
Don't let this book affect your opinion of the series. The earlier books are very enjoyable. I wouldn't skip this book because it does add to the story, but I am not sure I will listen to it again.
Enjoyable "chick" mystery.
The plot was relatively predictable but the story kept up a decent pace. I wasn't suprised by the ending but enjoyed the "ride".
There were times when the narration was too fast, especially when one chapter ended and another began. The words ran together and it was irritating at times. It isn't enough to keep me from listening to other books by this narrator.
I thought by the title that there might be some humor in the book, but that wasn't the case. If you are looking for a lighthearted murder mystery, this really isn't it. There were parts of the book that were very sad, but not enough to evoke tears.
I enjoyed the story and will listen to other books by this author and narrator. If you like mysteries and animals you will like this book.
This ranks in my four star collection. James Langton does a great job with the characters and the story is imaginative and enjoyable.
I like Charles. He has attitude and I thought he was funny.
I have not listened to James Langton before but I will in the future. I truly enjoyed his performance.
I loved the end when you found out who the charcters really are... You have to listen and see for yourself!
I love the references to other books, writers and historical characters. For me, that made the story truly sing. If you are an avid reader you will like this book.
The story is wonderful and Rob really makes it come alive.
The writing is superb. The characters are all very well written. This is one of my favorite books.
The beginning when the dwarves show up at Bilbo's house.
After the battle at the end of the book.
This is a must listen! Don't miss out!
The blantant honesty.
Tina is my favorite character. I love the way she thinks and how honest she is.
Sometimes she talked very fast and then would drop off in a mumble. I listen in my car while I commute and that made it hard to hear and understand her sometimes.
I laughed over and over again.
If you like Tina Fey you will love this book.
I probably would try another book from both. I "listened" to Catch of the Day and enjoyed it very much. Was disappointed in the storyline for this one.
Yes I would listen to another book by Kristan.
Actually, I liked the narrator. I though she was the best part of the book. I liked the different voices she used for different charcters.
I think the story had potential, but I thought it fell short in many aspects. Especially in areas regarding Nicky and James' family. It also lacked the humor that can make a romance irresistible.
Try listening to Catch of the Day first. Not only will it familiarize you with the characters, it is the better of the two books.
I would try another book from either one.
It is an entertaining book and I would probably recommend it to a friend who is interested in "magic" stories. The narration was good but the story itself was only 3 stars. It would not be my first recommentation but it would be on the list.
Amanda portrayed Liv and Davina really well.
Probably not. Usually movies based on the book lose something in the translation and this book, while entertaining on my commute, was not a must read.
Liv could have been a great character, but she made some unrealistically stupid decisions. I thought this detracted from the quality of the story.
I will listen to this again. It is a great book filled with history and interesting facts.
Sig, Edgar and their Dad are the best characters in the book. They are real people who have worked hard and I enjoy listening to the their story.
I thought Rick did a great job as Sig. I have watched every episode of Deadliest Catch and at first I thought it would be weird to listen to someone other than Sig read the story but Rick was great.
There were a few emotional moments in the book, but I am not going to spoil it for other listeners. I laughed may times.
This is a worthy book. I got it with a credit, but after listening to it I wouldn't hesitate to buy it.
