    I am an avid reader. I read during my commute to and from work each day, on the plane when I travel and instead of watching TV.

    "Quick and interesting read with inconsistencies"
    Any additional comments?

    Okay, so it's time travel and it's necessary to suspend reality. I get that part. This is great in many ways, an old castle in Scotland, happy and knowing older couple keeping it going, earrings passed down through the generations tied to an old love story, woman following her dreams, literally! It's good. Someone should have edited it a little better in that there were a lot of inconsistencies and little consideration to the impact of going back and forth in time, but I still recommend this one for its entertainment value. It's for those of us who read a lot of books constantly, but I wouldn't recommend it for a busy person who needs to be selective about the books you have time to read.

    "Got hung up on Time Travel issues"

    I'm usually a sucker for a good time travel romance but this one just had too many problems. The characters changed history again and again. One character was able to use silly American idioms in his poor gaelic. And maybe some of the dialogue sounded more absurd coming from a male narrator.

    I finished the book hoping it would make more sense but sadly, no. It was really too unbelievable.

    "Average"
    Any additional comments?

    The narration wasn't bad at all. He has an engaging voice, and different characters actually sound different, without being affected and silly.

    The book, however... Well, it's pretty much the standard time-travel highlander romance. Girl goes back in time, girl meets and falls in love with highlander, girl gets in trouble, and can't get out of it without being saved by a man. This girl is even more helpless than average, though, hence the mediocre review. A woman can receive help without being utterly helpless and foolish.

    Won't be reading anything else from the author.

    "A Sweet Surprise ..Totally loved it !!!"

    Hunkie Highlander blended with Romance, Time -Travel ,and a well-crafted story line... performed by a very good narrator....I was in Audiobook Heaven !! I'm still smiling !! And I will re-read this one again :)
    Time travel / fantasy is not my usual selection, so I'm glad I took a chance on this book. I will definitely listen to the next two books in the trilogy.

    "Couldn't Finish"
    Would you try another book from Dee Davis and/or Ross Pendleton?

    Probably not if this light weight, full of holes story is indicative of this author's style


    What could Dee Davis have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Had more plot, story didn't jump around leaving holes in how the 21st century woman adapted so quickly to Medieval time.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narrator was okay. I would listen to him again.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste a credit.

    Story
    "A delightful surprise."
    Would you listen to Everything in Its Time again? Why?

    It is the first in a trilogy which may mean that I'll need to refresh my memory before I buy the next one in the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ian the manly hero, who is both brave and faithful. Ross Pendleton gives him a very sexy voice!


    What does Ross Pendleton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He reads smoothly and with feeling, yet never intrudes upon the story with histrionics. He manages to assume the voice of either gender realistically, together with a genuine-sounding Scots burr. This is an achievement few narrators can pull off. I think I'd seriously consider purchasing almost anything he read.


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

    Virtually, yes. If you count a few hours sleep in the middle, that was exactly what I did..


    Any additional comments?

    I had low expectations of this book due to a couple of disappointing purchases recently, but this was a little gem. I look forward to further offerings by this author provided they have the same gifted reader.

    "Great Listen"

    This was one of those books that is just a great story with a great narrator.
    I love time travelling books and this one rates right up there with Karen Marie Morning highlander series.this is the kind of book you want to curl up with a cup of coffee and a rainy day and immerse yourself in

    "Absolutely LOVED it..."
    Any additional comments?

    What can I say? Time travel romance novels are my all time favorite.
    And guess what? I don't give a damn if the history is correct or not!
    If I wanted a history lesson I'd buy a history book.
    Iain and Katherine were just a fabulous, as were the adventure, murder, awesome love story and the great sex. Alisdair and Sorcha got exactly what they deserved!
    I first read this story December 2, 2011 and I loved it! Just as I loved it the day before yesterday, when I started it again.

    As to the narrator: He really did a wonderful job with the voices. However, one pet peeve I have is when the book calls for a whisper and there is none from the narrator. If you're sneaking up on the bad guys and quietly making your plans you just don't talk in your regular tone of voice. You whisper! But most of the readers just don't do that and it makes that part of the book just plain stupid. IMO..

    I would also like to say that the description tells us what the book is about or we can zip over to Amazon and look at reviews. This is AUDIBLE! What we need to review is the narrator. Does he or she suck? Why? Is he or she too nasal-y, too sweet for the kind of book he or she is reading, to gruff, too bland, too robotic, lacks emotion. Is he or she doing nothing but reading the book? Not changing his or her voice for the male and female voices? Is the narrator sounding the same whether she or he is reading a whisper spoken?
    Most of us on AUDIBLE don't really care what the book is about. We want to know about the narrator! THIS IS AUDIBLE, after all.

    Just a simple girl living the simple life. Nothing is complicated when the power of imagination leads the way. Close your eyes & just listen

    Simply this: Time travel that just happens, sex with a man she's never met but loves immediately, marriage within a week, poor brother and best friend left behind to wonder what happened to her but have feelings for each other too....... Could a book be more cheesy? I got through a fourth of the book and THAT is saying something!

    "I'm willing to suspend belief, but...."
    Would you try another book from Dee Davis and/or Ross Pendleton?

    Probably not.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Hopefully someone who is more skilled at character development!


    What about Ross Pendleton’s performance did you like?

    He did okay with the material he was given. It's hard to bring the characters to life when the author can't be bothered to give them personalities.


    Could you see Everything in Its Time being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    This book would need an entire rewrite before going to the screen.


    Any additional comments?

    I had great hopes for this book and really wanted to like it. It had a couple of my favorite themes - time travel and historical Scotland. This was a poorly crafted story. We know nothing about the the hero and heroine before they're banging away like bunnies. Are we really to believe that a woman, who has never slept with anyone in her life, upon waking in a strange environment, would really jump into bed with some random guy without even getting his name first? The two characters had no real bond other than sex. Really, who pines for a one night stand for eight years?

    And the use of clan tartans didn't start happening until the 1700s. There were plaids in the 1400s, but they weren't clan specific.

    Anyway, this just felt more like a school girl's sexual fantasy than a novel. It was just poorly developed story line between sex scenes and it would have been SO MUCH better if it had been fleshed out a bit more.
