    Story

    This is my very first Nora Roberts novel ever and I absolutely loved it. She took her time developing the characters. There is romance, humor, racial tension, class tension, southern culture, oh...and murder! Fell in love with Tucker Longstreet. The deep south has this city girl curious. Loved Tom Stechschulte's narration. Can't imagine a woman doing as fine a job as he did.

    I love to cook, but I hate cutting vegetables. But while having this book in I cut too many veggies on several occasions as I prepared meals. I was so lost in the story that I could have cut veggies all day.

    I highly recommend this book. Can't wait to choose the next one from her.

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

    Yes. It was just a realistic and pleasant story about people who I could easily know and identify with. I'd recommend it to someone who would like that in a book.


    What other book might you compare Thursdays at Eight to and why?

    Can't think of any at the moment. I guess Waiting to Exhale, but with less drama and um...drama. The bond that women develop is impressive. We can tend to be competitive. I like the support the women gave to one another in both of these books.


    Which character – as performed by Laural Merlington – was your favorite?

    Liz was my favorite. Sudden loss of her husband. An "older" women who had been concerned about being along and STILL maintained her character and turned down requests for sex by a handsome somewhat younger doctor. Even at her most vulnerable, alone state, she stayed true to her morals and character. Gotta love a strong woman who loves herself though the worst of times with class and dignity.


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

    No. I l work from home and walk my two dogs several times a day. I listen during walks and while in my car. Can't stand commercial radio.


    Any additional comments?

    Just that I am about to find the next book by this author an get started right away!

    Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish... Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    Story

    I was not going to purchase this book based on the reviews about the narration. However, I am a new Roberts' fan and wanted to continue to explore her work. So I purchased it and I am so glad I did. I began this one right after listening to The Witness with the female narrator. So admittedly, hearing MacLeod Andrews' voice was a downer. But after getting past his description of characters and scenes, things picked up and I "fell into" the story and didn't think again about the narration. That took all of 20 minutes into the 11 hour narration. While I think all of the women seem as though they are heavy smokers (lol) he does a great job with the reading all in all. One challenge is that I can't tell Owen and Becket's voices apart. They seem to be the same.

    As for the plot, it was great. Funny and sweet. I am already listening to book two and am enjoying it. And I was so pleased to know that Andrews is the narrator on that one too. I have come to know his voice as the voice of these characters. To switch up would be a bummer. Looking forward to book 3. Hope Nora is cranking it out as I type.

    Good book. Good performance!

A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    I absolutely loved this book! I am very late to the party. Apparently Nora Roberts has a huge fan following and has had it for some time. I'm not sure where I've been but this is only my second book from her and the first was just finished a week ago.

    The story was sweet, and intelligent enough not to be "mushy". Can't wait to finish this review so that I can move on to my next Roberts' book.

    It has been ten years since 21-year-old Kevin MacKenzie, Jr. ("Mac"), has been missing. A Columbia University senior, about to graduate and already enrolled in Duke University Law School, he walked out of his room in Manhattan's Upper West Side without a word to his college roommate and has never been seen again. However, he does make three ritual phone calls to his mother every year: on her birthday, on his birthday, and on Mother's Day.

    What made the experience of listening to Blessed Trinity the most enjoyable?

    The reader MADE this book. She embodied each character so well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blessed Trinity?

    My most memorable moment was when Charity was able to


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

    Her ability to bring emotion to the story through her voice and reading style could not have been replicated if I had just read the book.


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

    When Charity was being prayed over at the church. Very moving.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book. I had been searching for Christian fiction for some time and for some reason this came up during my last search. I am so glad it did. I very much intend to listen to the rest of the books in the series, to find other books by this author and other books read by this reader.
