I liked the narrator, loved the storyline & the mystery surrounding the plot. I went out & got the next 3 in the series as soon as I finished this one!
The setting and the fit of the story with the Maryland Shore.
When Cal tells Anna that his father's bequest is his brother. Families are based on love not blood necessary.
The scenes between Cal and his father.
A family that stands together without one common gene.
And then it ended. I was still reading and thought the story was still going to wind down and it was all gone! A lovely read, I just wanted it to carry on.
A lovely story of family (and men) pulling together. Can't wait for the 2nd one.
This was a great book that drew me into the series... it was enjoyed way too fast!
The Quinns are an interesting group of people and a clear picture that sometimes famlies are more than those born with your blood.
Loved the sense of family loyalty, and how they all gathered to help keep Seth in the family!
Good family fun, strong determinations, romance, sailing, "you name it", it's there!
Great narration by David Stuart.
Yes, I Would try another book from Nora Roberts and/or David Stuart; they were a good match.
Yes I would try another book from Nora Roberts. I liked her characters , they had personalities.
David Stauart made each character come to life, male an female
II would be first in line.
I love Nora Roberts and her characters. This story is another great one with interesting backstories and touching relationships. I'm a little picky when it comes to narrators and this one I found difficult to listen to base solely on his habit to clunk his teeth! If you can get passed the occasional irritating sound of the narrator loudly closing his mouth then it's a great listen!
I would have enjoyed this book more if the main characters were not portrayed as people who feel the need to do dramatic things such as throw dishes at each other. Nora Roberts seems to be confused about how to portray someone as a fully living human unless they get stupid and act in ways that I would not let my kids act in! She also seems to think they need to get violent with each other to prove their love. I am not buying it! It is a shame because I liked the basic story line if it could have had less drama.
Say something about yourself!
Disappointing overall. Story was hard to believe. Characters uninteresting and unlikable overall. Not up to other Nora Roberts books.
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!
"sea swept book 1 of 4 book in this searios"
This is the first book of 4 . I started listening to this book because i had not listened to many books like this on disc before i had herd of Nora Roberts.but not listened to anything of hers well this was a very good book to start with, From the very beginning i was hooked and you just were absorbed into the story of this family of brothers and the boat yard. the 4 books look at different aspects of the brothers lives and threw all of this the boat yard is mixed in and what happens there with boats Once you start listening you don't want to stop all you want to now is what happens next i have listened to other books by Nora Roberts since these, I found these a very good place to start but this author has written many books and if you have read others or listened to others you will now how she rights and will not be disappointing I could right this Review for all 4 books but that would be a wast of time, AS you could be listening to another great book I RATED this book five stars but all 4 books would get the same rating So enjoy and remember this is just my thoughts on these books but i hope you will Enjoy them as much as i did.
