I loved this book. It is a great ending to the Chinooks Hockey Team Series. I also listened to TRUE LOVE AND OTHER DISASTERS. Now I would love to listen to the rest of the series, and any other books by Rachel Gibson. Please audible.com, get the rest of her books!
I read this book when it was first published in 1979. It was definitely what we romance fans call a "keeper". I was very excited to see that it was on audible.com. Well worth a credit. I read it over the weekend. I enjoyed it just as much now as I did when I first read it. I would definitely recommend it to a friend. It is a classic example of the early historical romance novel and why the whole romance genre got started.
Devon Lindsey was my favorite character. She is in virtually every scene in the book. The book follows her journey from a 12 year old to a grown woman who falls in love during the time of the Revolutionary War.
Probably my favorite scene would be when the hero Andre Raveneau arranges for Devon to "marry" her childhood sweetheart.
Yes, yes, yes. Emily Beresford did a wonderful job with all the characters and there are a lot of them.
I can't wait to listen to the rest of Cynthia Wright's novels. I am very hopeful that audible will release all of her titles. More than just enjoying listening to the book it made me remember why I fell in love with the romance genre. The reason I never outgrew that love is that I am always looking for a book I will enjoy as much as this one.
This is my first time listening to a Rachel Gibson book. I loved it. Thought the narrater did a good job. I hope audible releases any more of Rachel's books that are available on audio, especially the rest of this series (Chinook's Hockey Team).
I read the blurb that compared this to Stephanie Plum or Kinsey Milhone. I was excited to start listening to it. When the writer starting telling the story through the serial killer's view it made me sick. I had to stop listening. I was very dissappointed. I am sorry I wasted any money on this book. I can not listen to it and I would not recommend it to anyone. It is certainly not comparble to the Stephanie Plum series! I didn't want to give it any stars, but I had to give it one to submit my review.
I loved this book, in fact I have listened to it many times since I downloaded it in January. I just read the other reviews and I was shocked to see how many people didn't like it. I have been a fan of SEP since I listened to her first recorded book IT HAD TO BE YOU. I have loved them all. I've listened to them all more than once, but WIDFL might be my favorite. I listened to it when I first purchased it and enjoyed it very much. I've left it on my i-pod, and take it to bed with me every night to listen to until I fall asleep. I loved the story, the characters Georgie and Bram, and the secondary characters. As far as SEP using the concept of the Brangelina/Aniston breakup, who cares? Writers do that sort of thing all the time. Did you ever watch Law & Order? Most of their stories are ripped from the headlines. Lastly the narrator...no one could ever replace Anna Fields/Kate Fleming. She was great. But I thought Julia Gibson did a very good job and I enjoyed her narration.
