It's the best WWII story ever told. These men are true hero's. Lt. Winters is my hero.
I couldn't put it down.
I have listened to the first two books in this series and loved both of them. They had fantastic great imagenative sex scenes that were "WOW". This book was more G rated and had the boring Church ladies take over way too much. Then it got better when Clarie let her hair down and let Boyd into her life and she got into his bed and stopped letting the church ladies run her life. Not sure if this 3rd book in this series is worth a credit. Get it on sale.
I'm not much a fan of Tana French and how she writes her books. She adds way too much in these chapters and she loses you with things that are not necessary to the story. After listening to "The Likeness" which I really thought was full of too many side lines and not much of a believable story, I bought "Faithful Place" on sale and read rave reviews saying, it's much better than all the rest of her books. Well, it was, but still not a great story. I loved the Narrator as he saved this book. I was able to listen to the whole thing without fast forwarding too much because of his accent and how he made all the characters come to life in this Irish town. I loved the character Frank Mackey. His story was good, again, especially through the narrator. This book might be a 5 star for some, but it just wasn't for me.
I listened to all 17 Virgin River books. I know they are predictable stories, but they are fun to listen too. Just enough romance, a little excitement here and there and a few laughs.
These are lightweights and easy to listen too. Sometimes that's just what I need. This story with Nora and Tom's beginning their relationship in Tom's Apple Orchard is really a good story. Lots of romance and laughs. Robyn Carr's Thunder Point series was just as good as this one and now onto Grace Valley. I think I'll miss Therese Plummer's narration most when I finish all of Robyn's books. She is fantastic.
Drew has an ego that you keep saying WHAT?? His attitude towards women is horrible. I kept listening to this as I'm thinking, What a SOB. But as the story goes on, I caught myself laughing at his comments and grew to really like him as he falls so hard for Kate. This is a very HOT and sexy listen as Sebastian York is fantastic with the way he portrays Drew and takes him through this ride to win Kate over. I also listened to "Tied" Book 4 of this series, which was fantastic.
I don't think I'll take on the other two books since after you listen to Sebastian York, it's not likely that you'll enjoy anyone else narrating this series. I also love the way this author has Drew talk to the reader as if he is telling just you this saga. The best part is when he comments to the reader, "Come on, I guess you really think I'm a dick now" And you agree with him totally.
Great writing Emma Chase.
This series is out of order with these two books. Promise is taken place first and then Wild Man Creek. Don't know how Audible messed this one up. Both books are a great segment of the whole series. I love how Robyn Carr takes these stories and is able to keep your interest with these easy listening episodes.
I don't think I could listen if Therese Plummer doesn't narrate them. Wonderful.
It's worth the credits to get everyone in this series. Thunder Point is great too.
This is one of the books you really don't need to have read the others in the series to get right into it. Jillian and Colin are new characters that have never been mentioned much in the Virgin River Series. The story about Jack and Denny is also emotional and so sweet. You probably figure out the ending all through this book, but its one that I couldn't stop listening too. It had several twists and turns with the relationships. Robyn Carr had me laughing out loud several times at how funny Jillian and Colin were with their chemistry between each other but nothing had happened yet. Their romance comes together and it had me smiling out loud so to speak the whole time. Get ready for Tears and Hankys at the end. LOVED IT!! Needless to say Therese Plummer makes this book. She is so good at all the characters and voices. I couldn't listen to a Robyn Carr book without her.
Robyn Carr's Stories and Therese Plummer's narration go together like peas and carrotts.
This story is about another Reardon Brother and his coming to Virgin River and how he finds love. Of course everyone who comes to Virgin River finds love, but as usual it's not an easy path to Happily Ever After. I love the way the drama hits you and suspense goes throughout the story. Then another gotcha moment. Never dull and I always can't wait to get back to listening to Therese Plummer. She is excellent with all the male, female, older and younger voices. Onto the next one in this series. Five Stars!!
This is a very HOT romance story. The story about Nell and Colton itself is pretty good, but the way this author, Jasinda Wilder writes a sex scene is unbelievable. WOW! Very well done. I'm almost finished with the next book in the series, Falling Into Us. You don't need to read the first one to enjoy the second one at all. Falling Into Us is much better too. The story between Becca and Justin is more about their lives and relationship with family than just the Hot sex scenes.
I love Robyn Carr and I am used to her books from Virgin River, Thunder Point etc that keep your interest and none of them seem drawn out. I was hoping I would like this one, but did not. The story kept moving slow as it took forever to find bits and pieces about Sam. Did not hold my interest and had to fast forward several times. I got to the last 2 hours and listened and it got better but it shouldn't have taken so long.
The WORST part was Christina Traister's male voices. It was chalk on a blackboard. She is a good narrator but don't make the male voice sound like a 90 year old man on his deathbed. Awful. Maybe get this on sale or a free credit. Some might like it if you they are bored.
I don't usually get into WWII Books. But this one was so well written and the Narration by Chistopher Lane was wonderful. It was one of those books where you just couldn't wait to get back to it. From Beginning to end this listen was fantastic.
