The story is fairly typical of the genre, enjoyable without being Earth-shattering. The narrator, however, could have been more carefully selected. The romantic lead's "husky baritone" was neither husky nor baritone-like. Instead, the narrator sounded more like she had laryngitis. We will not even address her Mississippi Southern drawl or lack thereof. I would have enjoyed this much more had it been read by a more accomplished narrator.
The story is fantastic, as usual with Nora Roberts, but the narrator's attempts at an Irish accent are painful for those who are familiar with the lilting cadence of the Irish.
