My favorite things are my family and my books! Depending on the day, not in that order. :)
The story was typical: Boy asks girl to the prom after breaking up with his girlfriend, girl says yes, boy takes her up to "make-out point", kisses her senseless and then walks away. Many years later boy returns as a doctor and decides that he loves girl and wants to see what they can do to make it work. Girl is hesitant because he broke her heart all those years ago and everyone seems to know it but him. DUH!!
All in all the flow of the story was smooth. The characters were likeable.
I actually ended up reading it rather than listening. The characters' voices I imagined in my head were much better than the audo.
Very immature. It was all I could do to finish it. The story lacked, the characters were kind of whack and the mother was not dealing with a full deck. The narrator spoke as though she were from Wisconsin pretending to be a valley girl. The whole thing was irritating. Sorry. Have NOOO idea how it got 5 stars. Good heavens! This was corny.
Just trying to find my next great read
I will not try another book by Anne Marie Novark. I have listened and will continue to listen to books by Erin Mallon.
I just finished Come Away with Me by Ruth Cardello and my next read will be LOST IN ME by Lexi Ryan
I have listened to other books by Erin Mallon. I think this had nothing to do with Erin Mallon's performance, but the story itself.
The heroine was the problem in this story. First she made this ridiculous promise (about the land) to her dead husband that she did not even love two years ago when he dead. However, she has no problem breaking a promise to her friend and Cameron's mother. Then she says ridiculous things to Cameron that she has to take it slow because of the memory of her dead husband AND remember this is not this is the husband that she did not even love...ever. Cameron was the one that she thought of for all those years. And then there are other ridiculous comments but I do not want to give those away. I do not know why Cameron even wanted to be with her. Sure the town "loved her" but she was ridiculous.
Well, sad to say that my husband couldn't handle my inner bad girl. He did something very stupid, and we are no longer together.
That he was able to go home and find his true love and happiness.
When they found out about her pregancy.
Her voice, and feelings to every character.
Yes, finding out they were going to have a baby.
Hope that she is going to write all of the brothers and sister story for this series.
The narrator did an awesome job.
I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I went into it not expecting much and ended up thoroughly enjoying it. I look forward to the other books in the series!
This trite little tale seemed to drag on forever, despite there being very little actual story. The heroine was so stupid that any credibility was impossible to maintain. It was in the sale for good reason but any price paid would be more than it is actually worth.
I liked the unpredictability of this book the best. It didn't follow 'the formula' and I was pleasantly surprised.
how the main characters interacted
Not applicable as this was my introduction.
Why would I want to?? I purchased this book because of the title.
Although what I expected played havoc while listening to this book, I still enjoyed the read. It was well crafted and held my interest. It's hard to resist intriguing characters who overcome, grow and then love wholeheartedly.
