I really enjoyed this book as I do all Debbie Macomber titles. However, I was almost unable to get past the first chapter because of the narration. Partly it was the tinny recording that was to blame,but Ms Garver's attempts at giving each character their own voice ranged from a really aggravating Betty Boop for Goodness to a perpetually slurring Chet with a hair lip. It was only my love of Debbie Macombers stories and my excitement at starting a new series (not to mention one that takes place at Christmas - my favorite time of year) that had me persisting through to the end.
Doubly frustrating was that when the reader narrated any other parts of the story that weren't spoken words of the characters, except for a few spots where she stumbled over a word or two she had quite a pleasant voice. Perhaps this was one of her initial efforts in recording an audio book so I won't write her off just yet but I'll be a little nervous about purchasing any other audio books with her as narrator.
I loved Leah's storyline the most.

This is my problem with the narration- one of the angels talked like Betty Boop. Chet sounded like he was talking through his teeth the whole time and sounded quite gross. It was so hard to get through parts of this book because of the voices.
