    Story
    "So, So LR Georgia"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The last book in the trilogy was ok. The main character Shannon made me want to kick her at times.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Roberts? Why or why not?

    I am a big fan and enjoy Nora Roberts very much and would gladly try other books.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Fiacre Douglas?

    I liked the narrator very much.

    Story
    "A good start to the Born In Series"

    I really enjoyed Born in Shame as well as the other 2 books in the series. Having a natural Irish voice for a series set in Ireland makes the listening easy and enjoyable & Fiacre Douglas does an amazing job making the story come to life. Nora Roberts does not disappoint in her descriptive writing, as I can picture the main character in all her different surroundings. The romance is not unrealistic; both characters are very believable. Definitely my favorite of the Born in Series.

    I love a romance and throw in a bit of mystery too. Must have repartee and ongoing (sometimes witty) interaction between the characters to be most enjoyable.

    Story
    "Captivating characters enriched by Irish lilt"

    A wonderful story made real by the narrator's gorgeous Irish accent!
    This book is a worthy follow-up to the first two "Born In...." books.
    The characters come alive and the interplay between them is very entertaining with many a chuckle being the result.

    "Excellent trilogy!!!"

    I am fast becoming a Nora Roberts fan! I've known for some time that she is a wonderful writter, but since I started with her more recent books, I am now visiting her older books. I've enjoyed this trilogy inmensely! You fall in love with all the characters and you absorb her love of Ireland. The three books are wonderful stories about characters you can relate to, in situations you can relate to. My favorite is Born in Ice, but I just LOVED Murphy in all three of the books, so it was wonderful to finally read his story, and to revisit with old characters in the process!!!

    "Great story"

    It took me ages to start on this series again, purely because I couldn't get past the narrator, but I so enjoyed the first book's story line, I just had to.

    The 3 books come together beautifully - well predicted but that's why you read her!

    The narrator - I just didn't like - I sort of cut him off and only listened to the story - if one can understand that.

    Still worth the read!

    "Decent"

    This book was just decent. The characters weren't quite as well thought out or developed as in the other two books and the plot was a bit lacking.

    I'd say it's great for a one time read, but don't get it if you're looking for something you can listen to repeatedly.

    "predictable"

    Good ending to the trilogy but very predictable. Born in fire was the best
