Publisher's Summary

It's Romeo and Juliet all over again.... As a teen Maddy Harvey was a bit of an ugly duckling. Luckily she's blossomed since then, and Maddy thanks God for this small miracle when a tall, handsome stranger comes to her rescue one starry summer's night.

But instant attraction turns to a disaster in the making when Maddy learns the identity of her superman: Kerr McKinnon. Of all the colorful residents of the small Cotswold town of Ashcombe, why did it have to be him? Because, as family feuds go, the Montagues and the Capulets have nothing on the Harveys and the McKinnons.

    "Dumb Premise"

    The premise of Falling for You was just too dumb. Maddy's family hates Kerr's entire family because his brother killed Maddy's sister by driving recklessly as a teen. Sorry, but blaming an entire family for the actions of one person is stupid, immature and how wars get started.

    When Maddy (now an adult) and others allowed this family grudge to influence their lives, I lost all interest in this book. While there were some entertaining parts, I winced every time a supposedly mature person acted like a bratty child.

    "Great book as always by Jill Mandell."

    Loved the book. Made me laugh and cry. The narrator sounds like a good actress but she does a terrible English accent. Too American. Next time hire an actual English woman.

    "Awful Narrator!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A UK-born narrator.


    What other book might you compare Falling for You to and why?

    You and me, Always by Jill Mansell!!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    They could have chosen a British person to narrate one of my favourite books. The terribly fake 'English' accent, with a hard to hide American twang, took far too much away from the story. It broke my heart to have to hear it, but I give props to the narrator for trying so very hard.


    Any additional comments?

    I think Susie Riddell is the perfect narrator for Mansell's novels. Shes' Wonderful!!!!

    "It's a happy story that will lift your mood!"

    The author creates a visual of each character and you can imagine hearing them with the great performance.

    "Accent"

    Seriously, the fake British accent almost ruined it for me. Need to rethink the narrator.

    "Narration ruined the book"

    I enjoy all Jill Mansell books in both print and audio...until now.

    The over effected 'British' accent that fell into the voice actors apparent natural American inflection and the constant over pronunciation of the letter 'a' made this painful to listen to.

    "Please do not waste your money"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator, I am sure she is a nice person, but OMG this is the absolute worst narration of a book. Why oh why would you cast an American to to an English accent, when there are so many brilliant English actors, really what is the thinking? Which she CANNOT do. The accent is not constant, the annunciation is agonizing. I had to stop listening at chapter 11, I kept trying but couldn't do it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jill Mansell again?

    Not sure, it depends who narrates it. I have really enjoyed all of her books until now. I cannot even tell you the story of this one as I was so distracted by the narration.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bailey Carr?

    Anna Parker Napels or Beverley A Crick


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I am actually angry that I paid for this book, did Jill Mansell or her team not listen to any of this before it was released.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listen to so many audiobooks but I have never written a review before, but I have never felt so let down before. We all come across bad books, but I expect more of production from this team.

    I love well-written books in virtually every genre. Quirky characters delight me, and it breaks my heart when a good plot is badly done.

    "Another horrible fake English accent"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Jill Mansell writes books that are fun and romantic and sometimes very touching. I've listened to her whole list on Audible, and it NEVER occurred to me that the publishers would have this latest book read by an American with a painfully poor English accent. Because of TV and movies and for the lucky, travel!, most Americans can tell the difference between the fake and the real. I preordered this book and it is maddening to settle down to listen only to find that it has been ruined by a bad narrator. I don't know if I'll be able to make it through this book; I'll probably have to return it even though Audible doesn't allow very many returns each year. The story has started out well, and I'm hating that the people in charge don't get that the story is only the beginning of an audiobook. The narrator makes or breaks it. There is of course the personal taste of the listener; some of us are fond of readers that others dislike. There are few narrators in the US who can really do foreign accents well, and I often think that often it would be better not to try. But the badly done English accent is particularly offensive since it is so very obvious. (Well, badly done southern accents are annoying too.)


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jill Mansell? Why or why not?

    I would happily listen to another book by Jill Mansell if it's read by a British narrator.


    What didn’t you like about Bailey Carr’s performance?

    She DOES NOT HAVE an English accent; she is all over the place in how she says the even the same word from time to time; she mispronounces words; she has to speak very, very slowly so that she can try to get the accent right, but it doesn't work; she slips all the time. She should never have been hired to do this. Nails on chalkboard!


    Any additional comments?

    Do better by Jill Mansell!
