I disliked this book because there was little or no conversation between the characters. It was more narration than actual conversation. It was boring.
The characters were introspective. The story line was slow moving and unimaginative.
I liked this book and would recommend it to other listeners. Was disappointed slightly because I didn't feel it tied up all the loose ends. Would have like to have seen the uncle get his just desserts.
I really enjoyed the relationship play between Abby and Dutch. I thought the dialogue was pretty on target. I got a kick out of the light hearted way the author would let you into the psychic mind of Abby. I loved the way the mystery unfolded bit by bit around the discovery of clues which weren't that hard to remember from one chapter to the next. It was just a nice easy listen. Can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.
Lots of characters. Sometimes it was hard to remember how each character was related to the very integrate and lengthy story line. But in all fairness I'm new to the mystery genre.
Most stories are resolved by the end of listening for this amount of time. Then in the sequels they develop other characters with references and story lines linked to original characters. Cinder leaves the listener in the lurch. Don't start then you won't have worry about finishing. Yuck!!!!
Enjoyed the flavor from being to end. It was an easy listen. It had the spice of surprise, the tantalizing herbs of romance and the well rounded aroma of a southern community.
Will definitely come back for a second helping.
I read the entire series. It was wonderful the way references were made to the characters from the previous books.
When Daisy tried to make Matthew jealous. Then she realized she was bored to tears with the Lord she had enlisted to help her with her scheme.
Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful.
Yes, but I didn't want it to end, so I slowed the process down.
Chosen a different narrator
Narrator needs work on dialectic and differentiation between characters.
I couldn't get through the first 10 minutes of the book because the narrator was so irritating.
Part of the reason I listen to historical romances is because the when the narrator uses the dialect and accents from the specific country. When it is done correctly the narrator transports the listener back to the time and period the book is set in.
Loved it. Give me more. The characters were developed. The dialog was not redundant. I was sorry when it was finished. I enjoyed the mixture of magic and romance, with the historical setting.
I usually love historical romances. This one actually put me to sleep. I didn't bother to finish it. Don't waste you time or your credits. It was slow moving and uninspiring. If I could I wouldn't give it a star.
