    Story
    "Great plot; Read instead of listening to the audio"
    Would you listen to another book narrated by Christina Traister?

    Maybe. The plot is good and the characters are strong, but the narration distracts from the story. Her Louisiana accents are grating.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not


    Any additional comments?

    I think I would have enjoyed it on the Kindle because the Louisiana accent was so distracting took away from the story. I would recommend the book, but probably not the audio version.

    Story
    "Story was great but the accent she used was awful"
    Would you listen to Mercy again? Why?

    I would but the accent she used for all the Louisiana characters (Marianne and the dad) was grating. Like so bad I'm sure I missed some story because I had to skip.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mercy?

    I loved all the Michelle and Theo scenes.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The Louisiana accent for pretty much everything. When the club members were talking when she said "character said" her voice went suddenly flat. Very annoying.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed.

    "Another Julie Garwood winner!"

    Filled with interesting characters, an energetic plot and lots of Cajun flavoring, this book will grab hold at the beginning and not let go. This is one I will listen to again and again.

    Story
    "Pleasantly Surprised.. Love and suspense... I was"

    I was hooked. At first, I didn't think it was my kind of "read", but it soon sucked me in and I loved the characters, the story was intriguing. The narration was amazing, I felt like a southerner... very charming touch ..

    "Hard to listen too...."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    In paperback, yes....in audio - NO!!! Not sure where Christina gets her idea of the accents, but it is/not a good resource. Her accents are just BAD and all wrong and made listening to an otherwise good story difficult.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christina Traister’s performances?

    Will definitely listen to the preview much closer...

    Story
    "My Favorite in the Series"
    What did you love best about Mercy?

    The humor in this story was perfect. I have listened to several in the series but this one is the funniest one. I loved Mike and her sense of humor and willingness to do what needed to be done at any given point. She also has some great comebacks. I loved when she talks to herself and then fusses at her self for not listening to herself. :) I liked Big Daddy too. He had a heart of gold and some strange ways of trying to get his daughter settled. As for Theo - "Well, there was this boy." It explains it all - sort of! I didn't see the mystery ending of this story. I did see what Theo would do at the end, but it was perfect for them. I enjoyed seeing into each characters' thoughts - the good and the evil.


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

    Her accents for both Boston and New Orleans. She did a great job of making not only the characters come to life, but she handled the humor perfectly. There are a lot of good narrators that can't bring out the best in the area of humor. Christina did an awesome job. She didn't lag or rush the story, she made sure you felt exactly what the characters were feeling. I would listen to another book by her even if by another author. She did that great of a job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud many times during this book. I enjoyed it so much I have listened to it a second time just for the humor. Great story.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to read Noah's story. Should be great. I am getting the rest of the series. The only thing is that there are several more books in the series but they aren't listed as a series on Audible. They need to be connected and in order.

    Story
    "Story good."

    I enjoyed the story. But the reader was overly enthusiastic with her dialect. I had trouble understanding the words when locals from the area spoke, especially the father. The words were extremely louder than everyone else, plus they were slurred together as to make it gibberish.

    The book would have been more enjoyable with a different reader.

    "Speaking Bostonian"

    Don't try accents you really can't do. Just read the book straight. The Cajun accent wasn't easy to listen to either

    Story
    "Audible version lacks"

    The narrator's regional accents (Louisiana Bayou/Boston) are really, really bad and take away from a fun story full of quirky characters. The heroine whines a little too much because she's relationship-insecure, but I reread this story at least once a year and since I possibly like one book out of every hundred, I'd call it a keeper.
