After reading all the rave reviews over this book, I figured it must be really good. The first part of the book really bored me - I even skipped a few hours. I started listening again in Part 2 and only here did the story grab me. The middle part of the book is really excellent and you are completely pulled into the book and I found myself listening non-stop. The story had such an immense build-up, but the ending was just so unbelievably disappointing! I had a jaw-drop-"no-this-cant-be-the-end"-moment* when I heard the familiar voice "thank you for listening to audible". Even though the story was gripping, I'm not sure I would recommend it due to the awful ending.
This was my first Johanna Lindsey book and I absolutely loved it! The narration was great and the storyline was just fantastic. I immediately purchased another book from this author and also loved it!
In between my romance/mystery books, this was a nice relaxing listen that didn't require much concentration - but I still really enjoyed it though! Typical romance :-)
Nora never disappoints! Another book that had me listen non-stop. Gripping and interesting story - loved it!
Another one of Nora's excellent books! Loved the story, loved the twist, loved the ending - definitely worth the credit!
I absolutely loved this trilogy! The way Nora describes the beautiful Irish countryside and with the narrator's excellent Irish accent made me feel like i was in Ireland for a holiday. Each book is definitely worth the credit. Someone rated the 3rd book as "boring" and "didn't even finish it" - which review nearly had me not buying the last book. But i am so glad i did as it was definitely not boring and i loved every second of it!
The only reason why I struggled through this book, is because the story is really nice. The narrator has this habit of ending nearly each sentence on a higher note which makes her sound like she's in pain (or annoyed). Her accents are really excellent though. I wont purchase another book with the same narrator, but will with the same author.
I absolutely loved this book. It is such a touching, realistic story. I really enjoyed it - well worth the credit!
I absolutely loved this series! You fall in love with each and every character and the stories are interesting and intriguing.
I secretly hope that Nora will write a 5th book in this series.. perhaps the story of Aubrey?
I couldn't wait to purchase the 2nd book as the first one was so "wow". It is the first time that i listened to the 2nd book of a series directly after the first one - i usually take a break and listen to a different author. Ros Landor is an EXCELLENT narator, the story is realistic and gripping and it really sucks you into the lives of the characters. I am however very disappointed that the other books aren't recorded yet - i cannot WAIT to hear how the other wallflowers find their matches! I highly recommend both the first and the second book!
