    "Cute story, fills in some background"
    Would you listen to The Present again? Why?

    Yes.


    What other book might you compare The Present to and why?

    Other Malory series novels by the same author.


    Any additional comments?

    The voices the narator uses for the male characters, especially Anthony, grates on me... he sounds like a pirate. I also do not care for her 'chuckles' or laughter.

    I am quiet and love being comfortable. I love curling up in a corner either reading or listening to a nice romantic book.

    "Loved it!"

    This book was a good read. It explains to us some of the Mallory's history and their strength. I like that we got to know more about the different couples and where they are today with their families as well that Jason(head of family) is finally going to marry Molly! I am so happy!!!

    "Terrible Narrator"

    I have to agree with the previous reviews of this book. The book is good, I have read it a couple of times, but the narrator is absolutely terrible. She makes Anthony sound like he is about 90 years old. She also makes Reggie sound like a man half the time. Don't waste your money on this one.

    "A sleeper, as in puts you to sleep"

    I am a big fan of Johanna Lindsey, but this book did not do "it" for me. I kept falling asleep every time I listened to it.

    "Good and Bad"

    The story was wonderful but the narrator was terrible. The Mallorys all sounded decrepid. Also, it seemed to me that the narrator didn't realize that Reggie was female. Her voice was far more male than Derek's was. Shudder.

    If you can get past all of that, the story is wonderful.

    "A lovely present"

    I wish it had been longer, but it's always hard to get enough of this families stories.
