Take a Chance on Me | [Susan May Warren]

Take a Chance on Me

Darek Christiansen is almost a dream bachelor - oldest son in the large Christiansen clan, heir to their historic Evergreen Lake Resort, and doting father. But he's also wounded and angry since the tragic death of his wife, Felicity. No woman in Deep Haven dares come near. New assistant county attorney Ivy Madison simply doesn't know any better when she bids on Darek at the charity auction. Nor does she know that when she crafted a plea bargain three years ago to keep Jensen Atwood out of jail and in Deep Haven fulfilling community service, she was releasing the man responsible for Felicity's death.

Publisher's Summary

Darek Christiansen is almost a dream bachelor - oldest son in the large Christiansen clan, heir to their historic Evergreen Lake Resort, and doting father. But he's also wounded and angry since the tragic death of his wife, Felicity. No woman in Deep Haven dares come near. New assistant county attorney Ivy Madison simply doesn't know any better when she bids on Darek at the charity auction. Nor does she know that when she crafted a plea bargain three years ago to keep Jensen Atwood out of jail and in Deep Haven fulfilling community service, she was releasing the man responsible for Felicity's death.

All Ivy knows is that the Christiansens feel like the family she's always longed for. And once she gets past Darek's tough exterior, she finds a man she could spend the rest of her life with. Which scares her almost as much as Darek learning of her involvement in his wife's case. Caught between new love and old grudges, Darek must decide if he can set aside the past for a future with Ivy - a future more and more at risk as an approaching wildfire threatens to wipe out the Christiansen resort and Deep Haven itself.

    "Narrarator sounds constipated"
    Would you recommend Take a Chance on Me to your friends? Why or why not?

    I might recommend the actual book, but not this audio book.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrators voice for the main male character sounded constipated the entire time. It was VERY annoying.


    Was Take a Chance on Me worth the listening time?

    Not at all.


    Any additional comments?

    I think the female main character could have done way better than the male main character.

    Story
    "loved story but did not like readers voice"
    If you could sum up Take a Chance on Me in three words, what would they be?

    forgiveness, redemption, second-chances


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jenson


    How could the performance have been better?

    reader with a softer, less raspy voice


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    when forgiveness happens


    Any additional comments?

    there were 2 spots that the author should have elaborated on a little more and given the reader what they were waiting for instead of just leaving it up to their imagination. I really liked this book but the reader's voice annoyed me.
