    "Generic and predictable..."

    I bought this based on the other reviewers but really wished I wouldn't have! It was predictable and generic..the characters were weak, the voices the narrator used were annoying and didn't fit the characters. I couldn't finish it...

    "stirring novel"

    My first book from C. Anderson and I very much liked it, will definitely look for others! The usual romantic story, with the broad-shouldered man be the hero for the weak female. It has some thrilling bits, sometimes almost a bit too horrid and realistic, but then it gets very romantic also. I especially liked the description of the landscape and the harsh weather conditions.
    The narrator did quite well, though it's never easy speaking such a variety of characters, especially towards the end.

    "Narration terrible"

    I am on part two, a total of about 7 or so hours in and the female character starts and continues to sound like some insipid weak character who has a high squeeky voice with odd pauses in her sentences like "I (pause) dont (pause) know (pause) what (pause) you are (pause) talking (pause) about." You get the point. The irony is this woman is suppose to be so strong and tough and has been through so much and to make her sound like a little meak thing makes it just awful. The male is OK but could be better. I have heard great narration before and this is not one.

    The storyline I like, but it is really hard to get through and at this point i am only finishing it to not feel like i totally wasted my money

    This audiobook could have been Really Good with a different narrator.

    "Don't Buy"
    What disappointed you about Baby Love?

    Very harlequin romance like. shallow and boring, the voices were so hard to listen to I didn't even make it a forth of the way through and quit listening.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Catherine Anderson again?

    I don't know this was my first try listening to this author


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Suzanne Toren?

    I don't know


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I thought the idea was good, but it just turned into a shallow story.

    "good book, terrible narrator"

    I loved this book when I read it, but the narrator was so bad that she ruined it for me. She read the main character, Maggie, with an annoying simpering falsetto. I did like her male voices, but unfortunately, that's only half the time. I would suggest a pass on this one.

    "Very Perfect"

    I downloaded this as a gift. The recipient loved this story. I am not much of a romance reader, but she is and she loved it.

    "ok"

    The story of Baby Love was very good but could have been great. I know I will never listen to it more than once. There narriators vocalization of the heroin was so weak. It reminded me of the "Kung Foo" 70s TV show. I could over look it once, not again.
