    Story
    "Better than normal DP"

    It's rare for DP to write a story where the hero isn't at least 10 years older than the barely-legal virginal heroine, but for once she did. She also seems to reuse plot devices as if they were Tupperware, but this story was a bit more original and even more believable. I did feel sorry for the demise of Pumpkin the cowboy attacking rooster. The hero's former girlfriend was a bit of a stretch, but put up with it.

    The narrator was decent and she was able to perform both male and female characters comfortably.

    Story
    "Romance for the very uptight"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book is filled with the author's very awkward and obvious life style opinions. If you are a prude and like very superficial character stereotypes this is the book for you.


    What was most disappointing about Diana Palmer’s story?

    Lacks relatable characters and it's very superficial. She had the opportunity to explore a very difficult topic and squandered it. Extreme lack of character building.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Nothing, the story didn't give her much to work with from the beginning.

    Story
    "Juvenile, but Sweet"

    In my opinion it is better suited to a teenage audience, than a mature one.
    It's sweet, with a little humor about her rooster.

    The narrator has a nice voice.
