I love this book, i have listened to this wonderful Nora Roberts book again and again. It is like an old friend you never tire of hearing. thank you Nora for such a wonderful Story.
...or another line of work. Maybe romance just isn't his thing. Anyway, the story was lovely, as always, by NR. I'm so happy she decided to write the fourth book. Seth's story. And thankfully, the narrator change for the fourth :)
Loved the first two books in the series and couldn't wait to keep listening. But this book has a different narrator who sounds like a high school freshman reading a report to the class. Instead of enjoying the characters and the story development I couldn't wait for it to be over. I almost gave up and just read the story in print.
The first part of the story was just too unbelievable for me. A Doctor of Psychology who can't see malicious manipulative sister for what she is. The story gets better but the narrator doesn't do justice to the female characters. I've heard too many good readers that allow you to know who's talking just by the changes in their voice. That's not the case here. The females run together and the male characters aren't much better. All in all, I like the way Nora Roberts develops her characters and though I wouldn't rate this a 5, I think it was worth the credit.
Above average for the series
The true coming together of a family
Was not pleasantly surprised by a new reader. After some adjustment I was able to move along with him. Was aware it was always a male voice. This was sometimes disheartening.
I enjoyed this series a lot but I am disappointed with this last book. It seems that this book was short and very rushed compared to the last two. This could have very easily had several more chapters in between beginning and end. The performance was very good which I find very important in an audio book as some narrators are so bad I can't even finish the book. Overall a good read, but it could have been much better.
I didn't read the print version.
Seth and Ethan are my favorite characters. Seth has a lot to overcome and we see him coming out of his shell more in this book. Ethan was patient as ever, which is what I like in a man.
It seemed like the first part of this book was rushed. Philip and Sybill seemed to jump into a type of relationship that I didn't find realistic.
