    A graduate of a prestigious French culinary school, Peyton has just lost her job as a food critic after rightfully accusing her boss of sexual harassment. Out of work and in a bad place personally, to Peyton a year doing something completely different sounds wonderful. Peyton dives into learning the resort business but is quickly derailed by an escalating chain of events that puts her life in danger. She refuses to be intimidated - until she’s nearly killed. Then she calls on her childhood friend and protector, Finn MacBain, now with the FBI, and asks for his help.

    Story
    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Amy McFadden?

    I found the narrator very off-putting. Her harsh accent and tonations got in the way of the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, due to the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Good story, poor narration.

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    The story is a typical Nora Roberts trilogy -- which I enjoy. However, the narrator's Irish accent sounds like a grandmother speaking. So, except for the lone Yankee, who sounds fine, all the other characters sound like they are in their 60's. It is very off-putting and makes it difficult to imagine them in a romantic situation.
