"Roberts is triumphant in realizing fully developed characters, as both Trevor and Darcy turn out to be vulnerable human beings with appealingly ordinary hopes and dreams." (Publishers Weekly)
Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors but this book bored me. I listened for almost 3/4 of the book but it just didn't hold my interest. The narrator really bugged me, her fake irish accent was the worst. If I heard her say "tink" in place of "think" one more time I would have had to throw my iPod across the room. The bigggest problem was that after a point I didn't care about the characters enough to continue. The story just wasn't interesting enough for me to keep listening. I've been a member of audible for 3 years and have hundreds of titles this is only the 2nd book I wasn't able to finish.
I absolutely loved this trilogy! The way Nora describes the beautiful Irish countryside and with the narrator's excellent Irish accent made me feel like i was in Ireland for a holiday. Each book is definitely worth the credit. Someone rated the 3rd book as "boring" and "didn't even finish it" - which review nearly had me not buying the last book. But i am so glad i did as it was definitely not boring and i loved every second of it!
ENJOYED THIS BOOK AS PART OF THE IRISH JEWELS SERIES, IT TOOK ME A WHILE TO GET INTO THE IRISH FEEL BUT THE CHARACTERS WERE WARM AND DARCY HAD SPUNK.
I just finished listening to the trilogy. The beginning all the way to the end....A good read. This last book ties up the loose ends very well. The introduction and development of the characters was spell binding.
My favorite aspect of the stories was the Irish country, the magic,and the reader's speech . I could hardly wait to listen.
Patricia Daniels made the story be real. I laughed out loud several times.
I would listen to this story again - I would listen to the trilogy again. I've already started. I love the pictures of Ireland that they paint and it's folklore. I want to visit the places mentioned in the book. I want to sit in the new music hall and listen to the music.
The picture painted by the description of how the new Music Hall will blend with the old Tavern. It made me want to visit there.
I've only heard her in this series, but she did an excellent job.
Yes, I didnt want to stop listening, but if I don't stop listening when I'm driving, I run out of storoes to listen to. For the second read, I listened while I sewed! :)
I love Nora Roberts. However, this reader makes this story the worst!! Her "irish" accent sounded like broken English! She totally destroyed the story.
I loved this series. Nora Roberts is my favorite. This is a charming story and makes me long to visit Ireland and feel its magic. Sweet romance novel. The narrator was great and did a fine Irish accent.
I did not read the print version but I would assume so.. listening to a story about the Irish with someone reading it with the Irish accent adds to the story.
I was sad when the series was over, I loved listening to Irish having Irish background my self. Feeling like old friends who are now gone .
The closeness, history of the town mixed in with a ghost waiting for her long lost love.
The feisty and determined budding relationship between the pub owner and developer
She has such a lovely voice with the Irish brogh that makes you feel like you are right there in the midst of the story.
Gaelic love story with ghosts and the magic of the island.
The relationship of the family members and how they face different situations adds tot he story.
Heart of the Sea ranks among one of my favorite audio books.
I found Patricia Daniels voice very easy to listen to. Her pace in reading the story was just right and the accent was very fun.
The part of the book which made the biggest impression on me was the trip to London. Somehow, it made her more real to me as I listened to her reactions to everything.
I love the Irish Jewels Trilogy and have read it many times. It was very fun to listen to as well. The story is one that made me a confirmed Nora Roberts fan. The combination of a strong woman who knows what she wants mixed with magic and a romantic Irish setting keeps me entertained.
"wont stop me from trying again"
As romances go, it had all the requirements, with a little fairy magic thrown in, however, the reader was American and tried to do and Irish accent, being Irish, it made me cringe, it was as bad as Dick Van Dikes cockney in Mary Poppins. She also once got her American and Irish people mixed up. I had to stop listening. I may go back to it later on but for now........
