I read this book a number of years ago and laughed my head off. It was available on tape but not CD and I've continued to watch for the CD or download and now its here. Once again I laughed out load. I found the narrator took a while to get used to but that was the only down side. Some of the references in the book are dated as you would expect from a re-issue but I still loved it!
The antics and smart mouth of the main character.
Good story of brothers reuniting and meeting their spouses. Appalling treatment by parents who deserted their three oldest and took their two youngest who they raised and never told them they desired their three oldest. Unforgivable actions by parents. The ending where the now grown brothers forgive and reunite with their parents hard to understand.
would suggest two readers, one for the males and one for the females.
An understandable reason for desertion and some effort by the parents to see their sons were given good homes with loving parents.
I would re-read if I want a good laugh and escape.
I'm glad I had bought this before I read the second book in this series. I really disliked book 2 and would not have purchased Finding Perfect. If I had not I would have missed a fun read. Pia is funny and self depreciating. I enjoyed hearing more about her.
Since Ethan is such a self centered butt. It would have been better if he struggled in business and in male friends. How could such a mean, weak and selfish person be successful?
Probably. Not all of her books have such despicable characters.
Ethan's mother was incredibly mean and a gossip. This is a terrible dis-service to small towns and makes the town catty and a bunch of bullies. No thought to the young boy.
Nothing could make this a 4-5 star review. Hard to believe that 30 plus years ago this launched a writer whose novels I've enjoyed.
No. I enjoy a light romance but just not books from this initial publication date. I've continued to look for Linda Howard books but now realize her books from the '80's should be skipped.
Yes but would prefer a narrator who puts emotion in the read and makes an effort to differ the voices of the different characters.
The judge's effort to free herself.
Not sure. I see he has done the narration of the other books in the series so I may just to here the rest of the series.
The narrator makes or breaks an audio book. Would encourage the author to audition the narrator. Might want to consider a female narrator. They seem to be able to vary voices and do a better job with male voices than a man does female voices.
Margo. She cares for others and has a a good giving heart.
i wish the summary had indicated the characters were gay. Good reason to read the reviews.
Way up there. I look forward to each new book.
The audio was off. Sounded tinny. Susan Ericksen is great but the recording was very poor.
This needs to be rerecorded. Don't use the sound engineer again who recorded this book.
I look forward to all the In Death books and watch for the next. Enjoyable? Always a new story line. Keeps me listening. Love to guess who the murderer is.
Fantasy in Death
Something was off
I love this narrator. The narrator can make or break an audiobook and this one does not use a fake southern accent. It was good to hear more about Elliott and Karen.
Elliotts family and his struggle to break away from old family traditions and expectations
All the characters are unique and real. A prior narrator made Mattie sound harsh and unapproachable. She's the character I like updates on the most.
The ending was not believable. After spending the entire book on Karen's worry about money, it wasn't believable that she would go gambling in Vegas.
