    Story
    (45)

    Nurse and avid backpacker Aimee Donovan is offered the opportunity of a lifetime. She encounters a patient who tells her he can send her two hundred years into the past to spend three months in the rugged Yellowstone wilderness at the dawn of the mountain man era. The only requirement: she cannot tell anyone that she's from the future.

    Story
    Would you listen to Yellowstone Heart Song again? Why?

    Yes! It is a beautiful exciting story. It takes you away to another time and place.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked all the details and description of the place Aimee was in the Yellowstone. It made me feel like I was there experiencing the events myself. I wanted to go there in person to see all of the places in the story.


    Which character – as performed by Alexandra Haag – was your favorite?

    I liked how she told Aimee's story and the emotions that were felt with each character. Her voice was soothing and told the story in a way that took you away in a dream of the Yellowstone.
    The narration of this book was great story telling and easy to listen to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Daniel and Aimee admitted their love to each other.


    Any additional comments?

    This story is one of my all time favorites and hearing it in audio just made the characters come more alive in my mind. This was a very well written story and I highly recommend it to any one wanting to be taken away on an exciting romantic adventure.

    Where does Yellowstone Redemption rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    IT ranks close to the top. I loved the story and the audio made the characters seem alive and real.


    What other book might you compare Yellowstone Redemption to and why?

    Yellowstone Heart Song, where this all started. This is the next generation of Daniel and Aimee Osborne's family.


    What does Nick Sarando bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Nick, brings out the individual characters personality and gives your imagination a different view from reading the story.
    Nick readings of this story:. The first few chapters he read to fast and sentences ran together, but the overall story he read was wonderful. Just my opinion.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed all through the book. Sarah's knowledge of how to do things in the wild county and then the inexperience of the highly popular quarterback Chase, learning new ways to survive had me smiling.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a wonderful story full of trials, suspense and a romance that grows from new experiences in the wild mountains of the Yellowstone. Chase going from a football hero in his time into a Yellowstone hero 200 years in the pastime.
    Highly recommend this book along with Yellowstone Heart Song!

    What made the experience of listening to Teton Sunrise the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the sound of emotions the adventure, the excitement and voices brought to life.


    What other book might you compare Teton Sunrise to and why?

    Yellowstone Heart Song because it was in the Mountains of the Yellowstone and had all the adventure and excitement of being in the wilderness. Both books show tough mountain men have hearts full of love and protection for their families.


    What about Steve Marvel’s performance did you like?

    I liked his voice on telling the story and of the men. I didn't care for his voice representing Evelyn. He made her sound whiney and she was not a whiney character. Her character was strong and defiant. Sarah's voice sounded just like you would picture her at that young age. Aimee's voice was right on also.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Love in the Tetons


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the story and hearing it in audio always brings it to life. Makes the characters have more depth to them.

    Where does Ain't No Angel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best I have heard.


    What did you like best about this story?

    .I liked the second half when Laney got to work with the horses and Tyler and her talked and communicated more while out riding. They became closer by learning about each other. He also saw how she worked with horses. Laney had showed him that she knew how to take care of sick and injured horses.


    What about Cody D. Roberts’s performance did you like?

    I loved Cody's voice of all the characters. The men were sexy and strong and Laney sounded soft not whiney like others I have heard for a woman. Cody has just the right amount of a twang that makes him sound so sexy, but not overdone.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried when Tyler brought Laney to his ranch and left her by her self in her room. I felt sad because Tyler didn't trust Laney.She felt so alone, not knowing what she was to do. I got anger with Gabe for treating Laney so badly trying to save himself. I loved when Tyler took Laney out riding, looking at the horses.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the way it came alive with audio and gave me a new imagination and insight by hearing the story. This story brings out a lot of emotion in a reader. Well written story. Highly recommend listening to it.

    Jake Owens is tired of life on his parents' Montana ranch, catering to city folk who want a taste of old-fashioned country living. He enjoys life in the fast lane, with fast cars and even faster women. When he falls in with the wrong crowd and is accused of murder, a stranger's bizarre offer at a second chance might be his only hope to clear his name. Rachel Parker is highly devoted to her family. A tragedy prompts a daring move to the Oregon Territory for a fresh start in a new land.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! It brought this story to life. You could picture the story more clearly and feel the emotions of each character.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the time travel to a wagon train and how Jake found a way to get a second chance in life along with falling in love. He never thought either would happen.


    What does Cody Roberts bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Cody brought a real sexy voice to Jake Owens, a softer tone for Rachel Parker and a mono tone for the narrator. He made the characters seem real. He was easy to listen to and made the story flow with excitement and emotions.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I wanted to listen to this story for a long time and didn't want it to end.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed listening to this story. The book made you feel like you were there in the story, but the audio version let you feel the movement and hear the voices of the characters.
    I liked how Cody, changed his tones with each voice. It kept the story interesting and never boring.
