    Story
    "Just Wave a Confederate Flag Already"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not. Three ghost? Two star-crossed ghosts, one confederate ghost hero? In this unnecessary subplot, why make a confederate soldier ghost a hero? Why make the yankee ghost a wife-beating child killer? Jeez, Nora, WTF? The south lost the war, get over it.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Leave out the war of northern aggression. Or remember that Western Maryland, though technically the south, is not the deep south. Many Marylanders fought to end slavery.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Luke Daniels?

    Sure, he has a manly voice.


    Do you think The Heart of Devin MacKade needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, there are four books in this series. I think this question doesn't take that into consideration.


    Any additional comments?

    I used to love Nora Roberts, until this book. I have read over 65 of her books. I have read her most of my life. Time to rethink my devotion.I am confused by this subplot which is insensitive in its glorification of the confederacy. The main story about the sheriff and the abuse surviver could have been really good, if Nora spent more time developing their characters. The sheriff is my kind of hero, but was poorly developed. This failure is made only worse by this crazy ghost subplot.

    "To have a love like this"

    I have always been a huge fan of this series and I can't count how many times I have re read them. But when I found them in audiobook I just couldn't resist listening and falling in love with the Mackade's all over again.

    Story
    "Too much growling"
    What did you like best about The Heart of Devin MacKade? What did you like least?

    I liked the story...the different angle taken with the third MacKade brother.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I hated how the narrator growled all of Devin's dialogue. Every line was delivered through what sounded like gritted teeth...way too gruff. Seemed especially inappropriate when the dialogue was with the man-fearing, formerly abused woman he "loved". The voice did not fit the character that had been developed over the first two stories.

    "The best"

    My favorite out of the series. It's very well written just like all of Nora's books. I recommend this book to those who have been abused one way or another. Those who have felt week and brittle.
