    "Worst Narrator"

    I love the Quinn brothers and this series and the narrator completely butchered it for me. I'm going to try the 3rd one with Phillip since it's a new narrator and hopefully it won't be too terrible. Phillip sounds like a girl right now....

    "Best book in a long time"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rising Tides to be better than the print version?

    Audio gives me time to listen and do other stuff around the house or while driving.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The ending


    Which character – as performed by David Stuart – was your favorite?

    Grace


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

    YES


    Any additional comments?

    You never knew what was going to happen, hum drum books that you do not even have to hear all of are boring.

    Story
    "Very disappointed - Hoped for better"
    What did you like best about Rising Tides? What did you like least?

    I liked the premise of the story and Ethan was an interesting character - But what happened to the women?!! Anna is interfering and aggressive and Grace is not at all interesting.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    The entire story of Ethan and Grace is totally unbelievable and the perfect ending would have been for Ethan to find someone who loves the man he is, not the man she wants him to be. I can't believe that Grace plans the whole proposal, marriage, and happily ever after on the strength of a bouquet of handpicked flowers and an invitation to dinner. For crying out loud, it's their FIRST date!


    Which character – as performed by David Stuart – was your favorite?

    Ethan


    Could you see Rising Tides being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I hope not - it needs a lot more filler.


    Any additional comments?

    Though I would love to know what happens with Seth, I do not plan to put myself through the rest of the series.

    "Loved this series, Ethan was the quiet achiever."

    Ethan's character was well written and a good fit to calm Cameron's character, I particularly enjoyed the way Ms Roberts explored the strong yet unique relationship that Seth had with each brother.

    "Easy Listening"

    The Quinn Brothers series follows the usual romance format but in this case the main characters do have a bit of an edge. All three male protagonists had a harsh start in life and suffered childhood violence, sexual abuse or gang life. Brought together by their adopted father's death and his dying wish that they care for a fourth adopted brother, a ten year old boy named Seth who none of them know well, Cam, Ethan and Phil must work together to restructure their lives and prevent Seth being returned to life of negligence and cruelty. Along the way they must they must clear their father's name and, as befitting of a Nora Roberts novel, negotiate happiness with the love of their lives.

    The narrator's easy drawl adds to the tone of the story and although the characters are involving this is very easy listening. No major twist coming your way, everything does end happily ever after (it's a romance novel after all)!

    Be warned though, no mysteries are laid to rest until the third book Inner Harbor and the Quinn Brothers swear - a lot! You may want to use headphones for this one!
