This is part of a series but it is extremely short and, in my opinion, not worth the price I paid. Others in the series are twice as long and cost the same.
I think it's a good idea to wait a while between listening to each of the books I'm this series. I, unfortunately, did not and found myself bored with this final installment in the trilogy. The repetition of several words grated on my nerves, as did the whiny voice of the actress--although I don't know if that was her voice or her interpretation of the character. A must-listen to complete the series but predictable in its plot.
I've started to listen to the Drake Sisters series and it's enjoyable but the stories are all extremely predictable. I recommend them but with the caveat that they all follow the same formula; this brings an idea of visiting with an old friend each time I listen to a new one.
I love Peter Walsh and I enjoyed this book. Let's be honest: It really is kind of hard to come up with The One and Only Method to Organize; this topic has been covered time and again, so it's very challenging to inspire the chronically disorganized like me. Peter achieved it and I have to give him credit for effectively reading his own book.
The issue I have with the book does not have anything to do with him, though... I was frustrated that the awesome worksheets he kept mentioning were not available to me. I would think that the world of audio books had developed enough to make them available for download on the site once you purchased the book. Even so, his descriptions are so detailed that you can easily work around not having them.
This book had a lot of potential and could have been another entertaining Roberts romance to help keep my mind off things like cleaning and rush-hour traffic. However, I did not like that the main male and female characters were a couple right off the bat. Yes, I can understand that she wanted to break from the same formula of virtually every other book she's written, but I have come to appreciate that. The information on how the firefighters train is very interesting and admirable.
I am sure Michaels is a good writer but this novel was a waste of my money. There were too many characters and too many subplots. If one had been chosen and developed, it would have been palatable.
