As always, the combination of Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi leave me breathless with laughter. I never have a negative comment about this combination. However, for this one I must say, it was too short. Please, more Miranda.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable read. Not predictable. Strong characters and ensemble cast. While I am not necessarily a western reader, I loved this story and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good book. The narration was superb.
I always wondered, as I watch the TV news, what life is like for people in war torn countries. This story explained life in Iran, coming to America and finding the changing family dynamic. Each character’s personality shown in the story and I found I wished these characters were my real life American neighbors. The two love story lines, both different, were fresh and new in the field of romance novels. This is a wonderful story.
This is what a love story is all about. Two people caring for each other’s welfare. The book is superbly crafted and a true page turner. From page one until the end there is a thread weaving its way through the story until the final page. The reader is compelled to find out what will happen next. I truly enjoyed this story. It is a heart warmer.
This is a good “nightstand” book to read an excerpt or two from to get you “in the mood”. As a book to read with a true compelling story line, no. I was half way through the book and still wondering what is this story about other than physical attraction. While I adored the ensemble case of characters, I found the main character, Joss, to be shallow and self-serving. The narrator was superb with all the different accents, but no narrator can rise above a truly poorly written book.
I find it interesting that every single person in SEP???s books have their own distinct character and personality. I find this amazing as I read through the Chicago Stars series. Each person is distinctive. The reason I mention this is because for some unexplained reason I have a fondness for Bobby Tom Denton. Can???t explain it. Only know this character, over the other male characters in the series, stood out for me. I loved this book, as I have all of the Chicago Stars series, and would recommend it to anyone wanting an adorable love story full of fun, laughter and downright good entertainment.
There are several elements that change a story from good to excellent. 1) The reader loves and empathizes with the characters. 2) The story line is intriguing, and not predictable, thus causing the readier to want to find out what will happen next. And, if the book is an audible edition, the narration, which draws the reader deeper into the story. This book has it all and will definitely not disappoint!
While the enchanting story between the Major and Mrs. Ali is the focal point of the story; I found the relationship between father and son to be of equal interest. I highly recommend this wonderful title to anyone wanting a pleasant, feel good story, with an excellent narration.
I downloaded this piece for two reasons. It was free. The title was of interest to me. I was surprised when what I anticipated the piece being about turned out to be something entirely different. Was it a love story? Yes, a realistic love. Was it a rule book on marriage? No, but I found myself jotting done quotes for future reference. I truly enjoyed this audible selection and am proud to have it in my library.
Possibly this book should be manditory reading as it gives reality to the true collatoral damage of war - those that are left behind.
