Not a bad idea for a story if it had been better developed. There really wasn't much to it. The story just wasn't believable.
Sometimes a narrator can improve upon a poorly written book, but not this one. Her Texas accent wasn't bad at times, sometimes I thought she sounded like Dolly Parton, from Tennessee.
I love Diana Palmers books and looked forward to "reading" them in the audible version. Imaging my shock and dismay when I realized that one of my favorite of her books had been butchered to the point that the story was ruined, the characters were flat and the romance gone. Save your money, buy the written version. It's so much better than this. If they ever get the unabridged version then it will be worth the money.
This was awful. I'm not sure if it was the writing that bothered me so much or the narrator, who spoke the heroine's lines breathlessly and the hero's lines in an odd old-man accent. How can you enjoy a book when the voices conjure images of Barbie and Walter Matthau (sorry, Walt) having an affair? A wasted 3 hours. Oh, well, at least I got my ironing done.
I love Diana Palmer. I love Lord of the Desert. I abhor this audio book.
Chopped story, characters and subplots ruin the book. Condensing the 2nd half into the last 2 minutes makes it sappy and trite
This book as been radically abridged ( aprox 45% ) If you read the kindle version all the loose ends will be developed and tied up. Additionally, there is an entire subplot that is not present in the audible edition. One of the funniest scenes in the book is on the cutting room floor. Too bad... All in all, they have done Ms. Palmer and her readers a great disservice by leaving so much out.
Did I mention Elvis, the bombing, their separation, and how she saves the day???
This book was a great read! The narrarator did a good job with the accents, etc. The story was slightly witty and romantic. Although predictable, I enjoyed it anyway. For a good romance, I highly recommend.
