I suffered through three chapters of this story before I decided I could not take it anymore. At first, I thought it was the narrator who had the worst accent ever. Clearly, she had never been to NC. I am from NC and have never heard an accent like hers (not even sure where I would hear one like hers). But after suffering through another couple of chapters, I realized that I hated the story as well. It was far too negative and offensive for me. Never seen people so very back woods!!! Atrocious!
I am still confused about the plot in this book. The story line was like coming into the middle of a conversation. If the book was part of a series, I could understand it better, but no such luck. On top of that, the climax left me standing there with nowhere to go and lots of questions. What??????
The narrator was so slow, I had to speed up the timing of my listen. And then it was still too long.
Book 2 was the first of the Fools Gold series that I listened to. It was actually with book 2 that I became hooked on the Fool Gold series by Susan Mallery. Although it is a series, you can start with any book in the series and not be confused or feel something was left out. Yet, having listened to the whole series, each book just adds more. Liz and Ethan's story was so touching. It made me become more invested in learning more about all the characters in Fools Gold.
Wow! Nora did it again. I'm sad to see this series come to an end. I have enjoyed the women of Vows immensely. Once again, the combination of Nora Roberts as author and Angela Dawe as narrator wins! What a great series. I recommend it to anyone.
Nora Roberts has done a great job weaving these four stories of love and friendship together. I love Emma and Jack's story. And I love how unique each love story is to the characters. Angela Dawe is a welcomed change from the first narrator. She really draws you in.
Nora Roberts did a great job not only setting the plot for McKenzie and Carter but also setting the scene for the other three stories to follow. I love the way she wove in their past relationship with the present. However, I was not a fan of Emily Durante's narration. She did not draw me into the characters.
I really enjoyed the third book in the bride quartet series. Angela Dawe brought Laurel and Del's story to life in such a wonderful way. Don't miss it!
