I bought this as one of their sale books for $4.95. Even at that price it was a waste of money. It started as a conversation in a chatroom. It was very difficult to listen to. And VERY weird. I hated it. A very bad beginning to a book. Plus the narrator was not the greatest.
I am always amazed by authors who do not choose a good narrator for their book. There is nothing worse than to read a review that makes the book sound very interesting only to have it ruined by a terrible narrator. Brad Wills is a very good narrator and he does not disappoint in Rowan's Lady. He has a wonderful narrating voice. Combined with a good book you can't go wrong. I enjoyed Rowan's Lady.
Two people trying to overcome a tragedy in their past. They meet up again with happy sad consequences. I liked the story line a lot.
While the story and performance were very good I have two things to criticize. The first is the fact that too much narration can be overkill and many authors are guilty of writing too many words when a few words would have worked. The second is at the beginning of each chapter the narrator quotes poetry in a soothing type voice. Drove me crazy.
I liked the touch of mystery laced with romance in this book and as far as I am concerned Anne Flosnik is one of the best narrators. A who done it. Loved it.
It is amazing how, in some books, the two main characters are so quickly drawn to each other and how easily they are seduced. A confirmed rogue and a spinster (young by today standards) and the chase is on. A little humor in the dialogue with the two main characters in their banter. Is it love, or lust?
Lady Margaret "Meg" Wyatt was my 14th great grandmother so I was thrilled when I came across this novel of Anne Boleyn's friendship with Meg Wyatt. I thought it was very well done. In this book Meg Wyatt is very devoted and loyal to Anne Boleyn right up to Anne's violent end. Historically interesting with facts regarding Anne's execution. They were violent times in history.
It was a good book but it had it's moments. Sometimes authors go into to much detail when telling their story. Sometimes too much dialogue that just seems to fill in to make the book longer. They story was very good but I would have liked the author to advance from one situation to another with minimal dialogue or explanations. Her books always has a hero that sounds like a god in build and stature. Her description of West did not disappoint. Sigh. Regardless of my criticisms it was a good book, just not 5 stars.
Some series books don't leave you hanging from book to book. The ending of this book had a prologue to book 2. I felt a little bit disappointed with the prologue. And the last chapter of this book I felt could have been condensed. It just seemed to drag on. It jus wasn't one of my favorites.
Nicholas Boulton is one of my favorite narrators. His narration for Lessons in French did not disappoint. His voice for Trev was wonderful. Sigh! Laura Kinsale injects a little humor in the conversations between Trev and Callie. I loved the book.
It wasn't the best of Kathryn Le Veque's books. At least it was not my favorite. It just wasn't as interesting.
