I love a cheesy romance novel, but this just didn't cut it. Too much stuff was repeated and the whole story was lacking momentum.
The male voice in this performance was AWFUL. Women should not make male voices just like men shouldn't speak in falsetto as if that were a genuine representation of a woman's voice.
This was a Christmas story with a twist! A story of true love, friendship and prejudice that has some great characters who are not all your typical chic lit types. It had me laughing out loud, finding excuses to listen to just a little more each time and wanting to book a ticket to Africa. A well written and well read story.
The story was quite straight forward.... no surprises really! I thought all in all that was the most boring book I listened to or read in a long time. I usually like Carole's books but with this one I was quite disappointed and can't recommend spending any money on. Sorry!
"Festive tale, with a twist!"
Clare Corbett....her voice is full of enthusiasm & keeps you interested. Her accents are great too.
It's really not like anything I've heard before, a lot of the story is based in another county which is unusual, but it makes a refreshing change.
I loved the scenes with Janie & Dominic when they return to the uk, Dominic who is an African Masai Warrior coming to a small UK village is interesting!
I couldn't stop with it, every opportunity to have my headphones on I did!
A refreshing change to the Christmas genre, recommended!
