    For makeup artist Grace Barrett, Hollywood isn't the land of golden opportunity. It's the land of difficult divas, cheating boyfriends and unemployment. So when her great-aunt offers her a free place to stay in Jackson Hole, Grace thinks she'll spend a little time in the sticks to figure out her life, and then move somewhere exciting to live out her dreams. But it turns out that there are a few more thrills in this small town than Grace was expecting….

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was the most difficult book I've ever listened to. Victoria Dahl is at the top of my "must buy" list. I really enjoy her style and stories. I also really enjoy series books and she's got some good ones. This narrator was so wrong for this book. I felt like the narrator was yelling the book at me in an angry, gruff voice of an 80 year old, two pack a day, smoker. I realize the book is about cowboys and the setting is Wyoming, but this was too much. It was just so hard to get into the plot because the narration was so distracting. But because I really like series, I pushed through.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is hard for me to say what I liked best about this story because the narration was so distracting.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Genvieve Bevier?

    Victoria Dahl's other narrators have been great including Lauren Fortgang, Wanda Fontaine. Karen White who has narrated for both Julie James and Jill Shalivs.


    Any additional comments?

    Please have this book re-narrated. I'd love to listen to another narrators take.
