Jodi Thomas writes the best books. Her stories are always good. If this book had been narrated by someone more suitable it probably would have been a 5 rated. I had even requested Jodi Thomas' books be part of the selections in Audible.com, so I was delighted when they showed up. However, the narrator made all the characters sound old, especially the younger sister. I was disappointed in the audible book.
This was a good book - probably four stars. It was entertaining and well written but the narrator was awful. She made everyone sound like they were 80 years old and had a head cold. Actually ruined the story. From now on, I'll avoid listening to anything narrated by Linda Stephens.
This is the first book in Jodi Thomas Whispering Mountain series. Rainey is a young lady that is running from her father. She spent most of her life in school, learning and then teaching in a private school in D.C (Her Father's). Now that she is in Texas she is just trying to find a place where she can hide, and that means staying away from the law.
Texas Ranger Travis McMurray is home for a month visiting his family, his sister Sage talks him into taking her to a dance. That is where a beautiful red head kisses him and takes his horse. Now months later, Travis thinks that his little horse thief maybe in trouble.
Jodi Thomas has done a great job with this first book. Linda Stephens does a good job with the narration. She is able to give life to all the characters with different voice. You will not be disappointed with this book.
I bought this as light entertainment but found myself intrigued with the characters and the story. The characters ranged from widows, independent women, barmaids, a dishonest and abandoned landlady, Rangers and a whole family of bad guys. This was a very enjoyable book!
I couldn't get past the first chapter, the narration was too bad.
This narrator sounded like she was very old and all the characters had a very shaky old lady sound. The sound of the voice was not appropriate for the story line. Endearing if you're talking to your great grandma, not so much when you're trying to listen to a book.
A thoroughly enjoyable listen with good plot and character development. I searched this book out after I listened to another in the series and enjoyed it every bit as much.
