"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)
I like this author and her style. However, she is getting carried away with her love of coincidence. The story could stand on its own without some of the "incredible" coincidences that occur. To me this takes away from the total. I want to believe that it could possibly happen.
This is the first Nora Roberts book I have read/listened to. I am usually not a big fan of romance, but I loved this book. I loved the characters, they very well rounded and complex. I also liked the detail the author put into the glass blowing and the emotions of the artist. I thought the narrator was outstanding, and I really liked the accents he used and the emotion he portrayed. The story came alive around me and I was engrossed till the end. I definitely would listen to anything else by Fiacre Douglas and I am looking forward to other Nora Roberts books.
I read/listen to drown out the nonsense.
I like Nora Roberts, most of the time, and I think I need to actually read this book rather than listen to it. The reader drove me nuts, so much that I couldn't get through the first 45 min. I cannot really address the story because I haven't listened to all of it, I gave the story so far 3 stars because I figured that's a good middle ground.
I love to read, the books need to be fairly complicated or interesting in their own way. I belong to a book club that selects great books.
I normally like Nora Roberts books, but this one seemed to drag and I gave up listening to it before the end.
Day dreaming book lover!
Some other reviewers didn't like the male narrator but I disagree. I enjoyed this audiobook thoroughly. It was filled with humor, sadness and touching moments. I will definately get the next 2 books in the trilogy.
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.
