    "AND SO IT BEGINS FOR THE CARMICHAELS"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Castle Hill to be better than the print version?

    no, the same.


    What other book might you compare Castle Hill to and why?

    Dublin Street of course since it stated there


    Which character – as performed by Paula Costello – was your favorite?

    Braden is all sexy in this one as well.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    And so it begins....


    Any additional comments?

    What a breath of fresh air. I love it. This is one of my favorite stories of how true love comes from out of no where.. These two fell in love and fought to hold on to it. This novel is a short story of the engagement, wedding and honeymoon.. It's pure delight. But,, we get a surprise soon as they return home. And Braden is taken back by Joss's reaction. So do yourself a great favor, read, listen or wait if you want, but get this.. Its's cute and you completely understand how small things can be seen differently is a man and women's eyes.. It'a a great bookl

    "Joss & Braden #LOVEMESOMEJ&B!"

    On Dublin Street was my introduction to Samantha Young and the crew of Americans and Scots that made me want to pack my bags and head to Edinburgh! Although I'm 5 books deep in this series, I adore Joss & Braden, so it didn't matter to me that I was listening completely out of sequence!

    Joss and Braden's novella was exactly what I expected--funny, romantic, hot & sexy, and the 'more' that you longed for at the end of Dublin St. I'd purchase this one outright as opposed to a credit, but any of the books within the series are definitely credit worthy.

    "GREAT GREAT GREAT"

    Even though this is a short story, if you have followed Samantha Young's series this is a MUST. You get a glimpse of the plot in a previous story but this gives you the inside scoop. With all the ups, downs and angst. Paula Costello is so perfect for Joss and Braden. She brought Joss to life no question.

    I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.

    "Great Story"
    Where does Castle Hill rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of my preferred series. Probably top 3. I like all of the characters and I like the transformation of Joss, even though she finds it difficult.


    Have you listened to any of Paula Costello’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't but she does a great job.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series of books. Joss and Braden aren't my favorite couple, but I enjoyed their story so much that I wanted to continue listening. I love the families and how open and accepting they are of their friends. So glad Joss got her happen ending even though she didn't think she would.

    "Great follow up to On Dublin Street"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a great little follow up to Joss and Bradens story. I loved it all. I personally read it as book #4 in the series and I would recommend that to everyone...it just fits there perfectly. I was sad this was short, but I was ever so happy I had book #5 in the series, Before Jamaica Lane, to start right after I finished this. I bought this one...It was expensive for a novella...but not one I would miss just because of that......I bought it vs. using a credit as there are so many more longer books out there that cost more so I saved my credit for something else. I recommend this to anyone who has started this series!

    "A TRIBUTE TO FANS! EXCELLENT!!!"

    This novella was so well executed! Sometimes, authors want to provide readers with a little more of the characters they loved so much, but many times these projects fall flat. However, this book made me feel all of the emotions I felt with Braden & Jocelyn's original story in "On Dublin Street."

    The novella starts out so smooth and just enjoyable. There's a comfort level in reading and you feel like you're on cruise control. The proposal was adorable & so romantic! I also liked how Joss was coming around in her attire---there's mention of pencil skirts, sun dresses, 4-inch heels---NICE!--Very feminine Joss!

    The wedding was just beautiful and I could not stop tearing up during the toasts, especially Braden's to his bride. It made me see the romance through his eyes. I loved the cute games Braden and Joss engage in…very teasing and super hot! Oh, & the honeymoon was sumptuous and had some good measure of love & war. OMG, but right when you think you are safe and this is going to be an easy read---BAM!-There is this emotional draw and I felt so angry, sad and just wanted to punch someone!!! But, thankfully, the resolution was beautiful between the two, and everything was perfect again. I love the commitment and insatiable need Braden & Jocelyn share. There is an emotional depth between the two that make their romance so compelling and lovely.

    This book is just shear lush, and such a gift to fans and those who count Braden & Jocelyn among their favorite insatiable couples.

    "Another sweet story!!!"

    Such a sweet and sexy little novella. There is some turbulence that happens between Braden and Joss, but in the end it left me feeling happy-good vibrations inside my heart. Love it!!!
