This book seemed to be a mix between romance, historical fiction, time travel, and a dash of paranormal all in one short story. It was an interesting concept.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.
“This audiobook was given by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review."
This is a cute,short love story. I really liked the way the author gave information about the Civil War and was able to tie it into today.I would have liked to hear more about the Civil War and what the male character faced. I will probably listen to it again around Valentine's Day.
I liked that I was on a plane flying for business and at the same time, I was able to relax and enjoy a fun, short story. The only thing is I wish it was a little longer.
I liked the narration. I thought it breathed life into the characters.
Why did they put this out so soon before Valentine's? I would have waited until it was closer to the holiday. but worth the listen.
I love reading! I also love looking for mistakes in what I'm reading.
From Amanda Fugate-Moss? I have no clue. Let me state that I couldn't even finish the story; I barely got through a third of it. I was so distracted with the narrator to even follow the story. I'm really curious to know if the author even listened to her story get trashed or not by the narrator. While the story may have been a good one, I'll never know because of the horrible narrating. I hate leaving bad reviews especially one so focused on the narrator but, what can I say?
NEVER! I had to look up to see if this narrator had narrated any other stories, my hope was that this was her first time. Sadly, that wasn't the case; she's narrated several stories. I don't even know where to start. The narrating was horrible, sorry, but that's my opinion. She was VERY stilted in telling the story and there were random pauses in a single sentence (ex: "It......is the second door on the left"). There were times where she spoke robotic, but I guess that can go along with the stilted speaking (ex: I....love....to....read....books). She would also emphasis random words, just like with the random pauses- where there shouldn't have been emphasis or a pause.I let my husband listen to the story for a bit to get his opinion and if you could have seen the look on his face. Priceless.
Find a different narrator. Plain and simple.
