Daring to Dream Audiobook

Daring to Dream: Dream #1

Margo Sullivan had everything a young woman could ask for. But while growing up along the rocky cliffs of Monterey, she couldn't help but dream of bigger things. The daughter of the Templeton's stern Irish housekeeper, Margo had been treated like a member of the family. Deep down, she knew that money could not buy the one thing she craved most - her mother's acceptance. Maybe things would be different if she could be sweet like Laura - or had Kate's shrewd head for business.

    "Started a bit slow but I couldn't put it down"

    At the beginning of this book I thought the back story would never end & the romance begin. Even with that said I couldn't put it down, especially when the main couple finally got together. I particularly loved Josh. He is such a perfect hero. I also loved the relationship between the three "sisters" which kept the book interesting throughout.

    I decided to use my time being laid up to get smarter! In 18 months I've listened to over 200 books, mostly history, literature & biography.

    Story
    "A little too schmaltzy this time, Nora"

    I saw the Monterey locale and have appreciated the writing of Nora Roberts, even if that makes me cringe a little.
    Didn't come up to her usual snuff. The bed scenes were a little too much for my taste. Fabio came to mind.
    The Monterey references were a bit too generic for this Monterey native.

    "good book"

    The only problem I had was the beginning of the book otherwise it's amazing. The reader sounded a bit goofy doing children voices but that was pretty short. Great book.

    "Love the story, narrator could have done better."
    Would you listen to another book narrated by Sandra Burr?

    I don't mind her voice but some of her female characters sound either too you or too old. Margo's voice sounds like Margo's character but Laura sounds like a 50 year old woman while Kate sounds like she's 12. I don't think I could listen to the two other books in this trilogy. I would rather read them.

    "Loving the Templetons"
    What did you love best about Daring to Dream?

    This series focuses on the bonds of female friendship and fashion.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Our hero, Josh, is the greatest. Savior and vulnerable.


    What about Sandra Burr’s performance did you like?

    She clearly switches voices for each character so you don't have to wonder who is talking.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have, but it is a little long for a single sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Hot story with fashion, travel, society, and steamy sex.

    "Great narrator, interesting story"

    I was afraid I wouldn't like this book because the lead character appears to be shallow, but you quickly see discover that Margo has many layers. the narrator is also terrific, making it so easy to tell which character is speaking. Very much enjoyed the series.
