Best Laid Plans

She was the sexiest thing in a hard hat that architect Cody Johnson had ever seen, but structural engineer Abra Wilson also had a will as strong as a steel girder - and just about as flexible. But Cody had plans for Abra that not even this spirited beauty could resist....

    "BEST LAID PLANS"

    This book is like something N.R. wrote in the 1980's. The narrator has a voice that belongs in cartoons. A disappointment.

    "Narrator stinks!"

    The narrator ruined this book for me. I couldn't get through the first chapter because I just couldn't stand it. Can't tell you anything about the book, which is a shame because I usually love Nora Roberts. Shouldn't these narrators audition for someone to determine if they have a talent for it first?

    "Change your plans, this is not the best"

    I am a very big fan of Nora Roberts so I surprised myself that I am giving this such a low rating. This must be some of her really early work because the story is so sappy and predictable. That wasn't bad enough adding to the trouble is the narrator's voice. She was so irritating that I found it VERY difficult to listen. It was a chore to get to the end. I can only say I'm glad it is over. Save your money and credits.

    "Narrator needs replaced!"

    The narrator could not even consistantly pronounce the main character's name - sometime it was Aaa-bra (with a short A sound), other times it was Ah-bra (with an Ahh sound). I could hardly wait to get to my computer to read the publisher's summary to see how her name is spelled!!!

    "stay away from this one"

    Couldn't even listen past the first few minutes. Never heard a worse narrator. Waste of money and time.

    "Cute Story"

    This was a nice story. First Nora Roberts book I have listened to and it was good enough to have me listen to more of them. It's definitely a simple story, predictable but nice. That being said, the narrator is just awful! I almost didn't finish listening to this book because of her. The voice is harsh and hurts your ears and her narration is rushed and unpleasant.
