This is one of my favorite Julie Garwood books! I was a bit leary when I saw that Anne Flosnik was the narrator but I feel she did a nice job with this book.
Unlike Gentle Warrior where Ms. Flosnik groweled the Geoffrey's lines, she used a much better voice for Duncan.
A very enjoyable listen!
I like the story, the flashbacks, the interconnected characters.
I've listened to almost off of the Nora Roberts books on Audio CD/Audible. This narrator was, for me, one of the worst.
First the Irish Brogue sounded more like old witches cackling. Then for intensity the narrator would crescendo into a shout for a lot of the scenes. Seriously loud. Romance - shout, danger lurking around the corner - shouting. I literally would have to turn the volume down in the car. I like an intense and moving love scene - when it's hollered at me, not so much.
This is the first audio performance I wish I had just read the book. If you need a little Nora, I'd recommend the Audio version of Born in Fire, Born in Ice, Born in Shame.
This would be in the top third.
The strength of the friendship between the main character and her best girlfriend.
Not my favorite audio performance of this book but it was very nice to listen to.
I really like the way Mr. MacLoud performs a book. With the exception of his children's voices, there is just about the right amount of change between characters. Nice cadence.
So many....I was laughing, crying, and sighing. Great in this type of genre.
The bringing the characters to life. I think I acutally skim more of the story if I'm reading vs listening to an audiobook.
It was too long for that but it kept me company for many work drives.
I really enjoyed the performance of this book. The story was a great continuation of the first in the series, The Next Always, but stands on it's own too.
Best? I think the twist that I will not reveal for the others who haven't experienced the story yet. Plus the secondary characters of Owen's mother and Avery's father.
I like hearing books performed by men. Mr. MacLeod's narration is a good cadence and tone. I think when I listen to a book I actually hear more of the story than when I just read it myself.
Very enjoyable performance. I look forward to more romance narrations from this performer.
I love the character development in Nora Roberts' books. This was no exception. Although the recipe seems to be repeated from other series there were enough differences to make this really enjoyable. A few nice twists too.
The McKade Brothers books by Nora Roberts. Similar premise with brothers finding true love.
Becket for sure.
If you get past the shrill children's voices from the performer the rest is pure pleasure!
I loved the O'Hurley's when I read these books long ago in paper. The narrations are EXCELLENT and the stories rich and vibrant. You'll laugh, cry, and sigh. WELL worth the price. Enjoy!
