    Story
    "Ready for Your Grandma to Read you a Romance?"
    What would have made The Lone Texan better?

    An interesting plot would help. The plot isn't that complicated and doesn't really have a significant climax. Frankly, the story was not that interesting, and I only finished it because it distracted me while I was cleaning house. To me, it seems like authors are pushed to write and publish too fast, and their books end up reading like there was little thought invested in them. I would gladly delete the book from my library if I could just have my credit back.


    Has The Lone Texan turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but it feels like it is getting harder and harder to find an intelligent romance.


    What didn’t you like about Linda Stevens’s performance?

    Narrator does an okay job narrating, but her voice shakes like an elderly woman, and it just sounds weird that someone who sounds like Betty White is reading me a romance. The 21 year-old hero sounded like an old woman -- it's just weird.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Deep sigh and disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    I was hard to finish the novel.

    "Another Great Story"

    The fourth book in the Whispering Mountain series. I like this one is about newly widowed Sage McMurray. Sage is all grown up and coming back home to Whispering Mountain, going to be open her new doctor practice in the town. This is until she encounters some outlaws in Galveston on her way home. Now she does not know if she will ever get to she her beloved Whispering Mountain again.
    The book is well written, I like this one the most out of the four books in this series that I have lessened too. Then main reason for this is because unlike the other three book before this one the main two characters in it have been in all the books before this one. You have gotten to know them already and there back stories. So now you get to see how they come together to get back to where they both belong.
    The narrator for this book is different then the rest of the books but she does a great job with the book. The voices of the character might have changed but it does nothing to take away from the story.

    "Not a strong narrator, but more than passable"
    Where does The Lone Texan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I like the series. Hard to find historical westerns.


    Have you listened to any of Linda Stevens’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I like her fine. She's not Anna Fields, but then, who is?

    "Predictable"

    It was a cute western love story, but fairly predictible. There were a few laughs and it was enjoyable enough.
