"The conflicts Maggie and Rogan face are refreshingly realistic and the characters themselves, well-rounded and likable, will keep readers engaged." (Publishers Weekly)
"A light, fast-paced novel set in the Irish countryside." (School Library Journal)
Loved it. My first audiobook experience. But Nora Roberts is a known entity so I took the chance. Another super story from her hand. Cannot wait to get the remaining two volumes in the series.
The story line, vocabulary, and all around presentation was excellent. I was expecting a mystery novel when I purchased this book, but was not disappointed and was pleasantly surprised as I got into the story.
Totally addicted to Audible.
Narrator does read way too fast but the heroine is hard to mess up in this book.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
I am easily amused!
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.
