Publisher's Summary

Maddie Chester is determined to leave her hometown of Gansett Island, a place that has brought her only bad memories and ugly rumors. Then she’s knocked off her bike on the way to her housekeeping job at McCarthy’s Resort Hotel by Gansett’s "favorite son", Mac McCarthy. He’s back in town to help his father with preparations to sell the family resort and has no intention of staying long. When Mac accidentally sends Maddie flying over the handlebars, badly injuring her, he moves in to nurse her back to health and help care for her young son. He soon realizes his plans for a hit-and-run visit to the island are in serious jeopardy, and he just may be "maid" for love.

    "Sizzling Love"

    The narrator did a good job. The story line was interesting. The lovemaking was too detailed for this listener/reader. Downright embarrassing.

    easy read, wish all men loved their wives this way. It does keep you guessing. Maddie is hard to figure out. wish next book would carry on with their relationship and marriage. or woupd have been ended to the end of this book.

    "A Great Love Story!"

    I just finished listening to this audiobook and....I'm a mess! I admit it --- I'm one of those people who cry at the drop of a hat. If it's something sad.....I cry. If it's something happy... I cry. I just can't help it. I also yell at the characters when they frustrate me or even when they've made me proud! I did a lot of yelling throughout and then the tears fell during the last couple of chapters. Sad, happy, frustrated, happy....ugh! All signs that I really enjoyed this story!!

    I especially loved Mac -- he's such a sweetheart! I read reviews from readers on Amazon's Kindle site --- makes me wonder, did they read something totally different?? A couple of reviewers felt this story "wasn't real enough". Seriously? If I want "real", I go to NON-fiction. When I read or listen to this type of book, I want to be taken away, immersed in a love story with a dreamy hunk of a man! That IS Mac!
    If you too want a "take you away" love story, this is one audiobook you must get!

    Story
    "Flawed but well intended"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Maid for Love to be better than the print version?

    On the fence about this. I rarely read print books any more since I can "read" an audiobook while exercising, driving or relaxing. I did not care for the narrator who put no emotion or performance in her execution nor she differentiate the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both Maddy and Mac


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different narrator


    If you could take any character from Maid for Love out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Big Mac. He came across as such a kind, loving person.


    Any additional comments?

    I love series and will listen to more in this one but I wish there was a different narrator.

    "Droll narration for a decent book."

    This storyline wasn't terrible, typical tomance, however the narration was droll and unexcited. Disappointed.

    "Narrator Really Detracted From the Story"

    I read this on my Kindle a long time ago, but I couldn't even remember the story-line. To me it was only so-so. What bothered me about the audiobook is ... well, she just pretty much read the story. You couldn't discern _who_ was speaking. There was no "acting" involved at all. Ms. Fielding has a very pleasant voice, but she's not suited to being an audiobook narrator.

    I can see that a lot of people really liked this story, but it was just blah for me and the reader didn't elevate it at all.
