Publisher's Summary

When three willing but wacky angels - Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy - are given a Christmas prayer request to answer, there's just one catch: each angel must teach her charge a memorable lesson before the wish can be granted.

    "Mixed review...."

    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.

    "Good story, really poor narration"
    Where does A Season of Angels rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is my least favorite in the Angels series. I'm glad it wasn't my first of the series, or I wouldn't have continued with it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kathy Garver?

    Any of the other narrators of Debbie Macomber's novels, notably Sandra Burr, Renee Raudman or Kimberly Farr


    Any additional comments?

    Even after listening to and reading many of Debbie Macomber's books, the narration on this one had me struggling to get past the first chapter. The narrator's attempts at different voices was annoying. This is definitely a book to read in print. I'd love to see it re-recorded with a different narrator.

    "Good Story but..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I was very disappointed that there was such graphic sexual details in this book. I had listed to her later angelic intervention books which were "clean" and enjoyable.


    Has A Season of Angels turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It is a good thing I did not start with this book or I would never had enjoyed her other books in this series that were clean and wholesome.


    Did Kathy Garver do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Good narration


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No

    "Great story, poor narration."
    What did you love best about A Season of Angels?

    I loved Leah's storyline the most.


    What other book might you compare A Season of Angels to and why?

    Other stories by this author.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Change narrator!
