    "Better than some of the others in the series"
    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the better books in the series. I was reluctant to get this one but it turned out better than I expected. I was bored with the books on Marcus, Gabe, & Ryan. This had a better and more believable story. I don't want to give anything away but the ending was GREAT!

    I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.

    Story
    "Love the Sullivans, but not my favorite."
    Would you listen to Always on My Mind again? Why?

    Probably because I enjoy this family and this series, but this one was definitely not my favorite.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Bella Andre? Why or why not?

    Absolutely and hope there is another book about Mary.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The relationship between Mary and all the Sullivan kids. Who wouldn't love a mom like that.

    Story
    "Lovely romance turns trite and treacly sweet"

    I was enjoying this romance for a while until towards the last quarter when it got sickly sweet and silly. And a little embarrassing.
    The couple has clinched the romance all over the farm and the inevitable death of the old barn cat dying of leukemia dies offering the heroine the opportunity to be ridulous about the cat she's known for less than 2 weeks (I'm a lifelong multiple pet household so I get the pain). But Andre has to create a situation (why? to bring them even closer together?) and it feels forced-the whole scene as they bury the cat and he's preparing for her histrionics while she waxes philosophical instead. So, everything is going great w/ Grayson, no clouds on horizon, and Lori thinks to herself "nothing is forever, Sweet Pea (the cat) taught her that". I love romance to death, but I wanted to choke on a chain saw. Its like the author took a vacation and came back and had to finish it quick.
    Then it followed with silliness with her brothers (including the "lethal" pitcher--sorry, I had to giggle at that). Its all manufactured obstacles and no flow, no logic.
    I can't recommend this book unless you are addicted to the series and need to finish it. I'm not at all compelled to read the others in the series. I've enjoyed several Bella Andre books. This isn't one of them.

    Story
    "NOT MUCH UMPH !"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes. Lori's constant swearing that she'll never fall in love, never need a man, etc., etc. I think once was enough especially in light of the fact that she did so quickly.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I think there could have been a little more UMPH ! The story was not very dynamic and very predictable. Don't get me wrong, I like the chemistry between Grayson and Lori, however, the story/plot around them was very blah.


    Have you listened to any of Eva Kaminsky’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. I think she is very good.


    Was Always on My Mind worth the listening time?

    Yes, but only because I don't miss much of Ms. Andre's books and will continue to purchase the audio versions, so long as she can pick up the pace. There is too much competition out there for her to lag behind.
