I am happy to see Julie Garwood's older books being released in audio form. I have been disappointed in the narrator that has been chosen but she seems to be improving. I hated this narrator in The Secret and still want a do over on that book but she was okay in this book. At least she is not Whispering but it still seems like she is telling it like a bed time story. I see that she is doing the other JG books and I just hope she get better. These Books are cute and funny that I recommend to anyone.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
This book is full of GREATS - the narration, the author, the storyline, the dialogue, the characters, their chemistry and, of course, the romance.
It's all been said before by my fellow reviewers so all that I can add is that it was a joy to listen to this different, action packed tender, sweet, sad, funny, emotional story that stands out from the crowded bookshelves because it did such a good job of mentally time travelling you to a bygone era and feeding you a romance that nourishes your mind as well as your heart.
Worth a credit? Absolutely YES.
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
Perfect made me laugh cry and swoon lol. Susan did a awesome job as usual. And 2 thumps up to Julie great story started slow until I understood where she was going "I LOVED IT !!!!!! will read again and will look for story with Susan as narrator. Worth any cost or credit a must listen if you need a few laughs and nice sexy love.
I am intrigued by the story, wanting to know what will happen, but I can't bear the narration, and will have to find a written version to find out what happens. I am amazed to read so many reviews from people who loved the narration. My dislike is not of the narrators acting skill, but of the intonation and quality of her voice, which I find very peculiar, grating, and distracting.
I have listened to other Julie Garwood books narrated by Susan Duerden, and in the past I was able to get absorbed enough in the stories to forget my dislike of the narration. But in this book, there is so much of the harsh, angry male voices that I feel so irritated by, that I just cannot continue listening, and will be returning the book. Even Christina's voice is unpleasant to me.
I didn't want to rate the story, since I haven't given it a chance, but I could not proceed with the review until I did, so I gave it three stars.
Loved this book, The characters were such interesting individuals. The slow revelation of the heroine's story, interwoven with the love story worked beautifully.
I love this story. I've probably read out about fifteen to twenty times since I first read it in 2002. I didn't like the actor's intimations all the lines ended with the same tone. almi at like each line was read separately instead of the paragraph read as a whole. The voices were almost all the same but there was an attempt to differentiate betwixt characters. I hope the next book isn't the same.
Best audio performance I've heard so far. The timing for all the funny banter was perfect. Excellent male/female voices.
