    "Fun story"

    Narrator does read way too fast but the heroine is hard to mess up in this book.

    "will it ever end...."

    This just wasn't good at all. I expected more of Ms Roberts! I found it hard to even finish. Narration wasn't too interesting either. Not worth the sale price!

    "Slow down...."

    This book would have been much more enjoyable if the narrator didn't read at the speed of light without seeming to have to take a breath. The Irish brogue is tolerable but with little inflection or pause, it's hard to follow the dialogue at times. Plus, the narrator doesn't have a wide range for female voices so most are difficult to distinguish.

    I'm a fan of Nora Roberts and I'm sure the book would be a good read, but this particular narration is not one of my favorites.

    "Great Story love the narrator"

    I've listened to the trilogy and enjoyed each story. I really love the narrator and how well he brings all the characters to live. Thorougly pleasureable.

    "Sweet story, fine narration"

    Normally I don't write reviews because people often use reviews to rave or rant, but there were so many negative reviews for the narrator I thought I'd chime in.

    He's fine. I've certainly heard better, but Fiacre Douglas does a good job. I can imagine a female narrator maybe working better in some ways, but I was expecting (based on the reviews) something rigid and nigh unbearable. Not at all the case.

    The story itself is not necessarily to my taste but I completely enjoyed it. It's pretty straight-forward without being utterly predictable. It's very sweet and the characters - while sometimes a tad idealised - are interesting and fairly believable.

    I would recommend it to anyone who wants a solid, entertaining, fairly light, basically romance read.

    "Predictable Story, Great for Light Reading"

    Narrator speaks fairly quickly, but does a fine job with all the accents & gives you the feel that the characters are indeed Irish. The storyline was fairly predictable. Also, it did seem like a lot of focus was placed on the main female character dealing with her emotional issues & less on the actual relationship development between the two.

    "Not bad"

    After listening to one Nora Roberts book and enjoying it, I thought this would be the same. Its not bad I guess, buit a bit annoying listening to such a strong accent

    "Irish Charm!"

    A fun book with the usual equation Nora Roberts uses to deliver a delicious romance. So glad I listened to it rather than read because the narrator has a lovely Irish accent that makes the tale even more delightful.

    "Don't Bother"

    Terrible narration. He sounded like a leprechaun. Also, I didn't like the stroy Maggie was rude, nasty and self-centered. I couldn't imagine spending any time with her so I can't imagine that someone would fall in love with her.

    "good story, terrible narrator"

    I loved the story but had a hard time getting past the narrator. He made Maggie and her family sound shallow. I won't be buying the others in the series simply because of the narrator.
