    Story
    "Little to believe in as far as romance is concerne"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I would say no. I could have been enjoying my time better elsewhere. While the narrator is very skilled and does what she can with the book she has been given the text and story is lacking in being realistic and ability to connect to characters.


    Would you recommend The Valentine Wedding Dress to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would say if you want a short, incomplete feeling story in which nothing really of any importance happens and it stays free (it was $0.00 when I purchased it) then go right ahead. If I would have paid for this title using a credit or just outright purchasing it I would have returned it right away.


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

    I have not. I do not have any fault with her performance though of the material she was given.


    Was The Valentine Wedding Dress worth the listening time?

    No, I do not believe so.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not care for the music at the beginning and end of the audiobook however it does go away quite quickly. The whole story is lacking in real climax or suspense. Everything is quite easily predicted and feels silly. I have no connection to the characters or the plotline. I feel like this could have been a short story and cut out part of the whole "romance"-ish nature and have it be (spoiler) just two people meeting one another realizing their parents at one point were engaged and sparks now fly between them. It feel cheesy and overdone.

    "Nice love story."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This was a nice up lifting short love story.


    If you’ve listened to books by Sherryl Woods before, how does this one compare?

    I have not.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Voice was easy to listen too.


    Could you see The Valentine Wedding Dress being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No. The story felt too short to be made into a movie.

    "Quick Story with a big enough punch"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it was a quick story with just enough of everything. Mystery, romance, loss, and a great happily ever after.

    Story
    "Cute .."
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Of course the "big event" - the tumbling down the stairs in her wedding gown into the arms of your new husband!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    the story was delivered nicely. It is truly rare that I run into a 'horrible' narrator like some of the fake negative reviews on these sites claim an audio book to have.


    Do you think The Valentine Wedding Dress needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    that would be fun. To see how her life unfolds with the highs and lows and past brought forward.

    I'm just a girl, listening to a book, asking it to entertain her.

    "Awful"
    Would you try another book from Sherryl Woods and/or Elenna Stauffer?

    Nothing from Sherryl Woods.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something by Lisa Gardner


    Would you be willing to try another one of Elenna Stauffer’s performances?

    Yes, it was the story that was terrible


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    the fact that it was only 38 minutes long


    Any additional comments?

    I've read books about vampires and werewolves, but this is probably the most unbelievable story I've ever read.

    Would you try another book from Sherryl Woods and/or Elenna Stauffer?

    Yes, I would purchase another book from both Sherryl Woods and Elenna Stauffer


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The story was very predictable, I pretty much knew what was going to happen next. The most interesting surprise was discovering Peter arrange the meeting between Lara and Dave.


    Which character – as performed by Elenna Stauffer – was your favorite?

    Lara was my favorite


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    If the story and characters were more developed, I could see a very good novella.

    "Just Silly and annoying"

    The concept is silly. The fact that the author must have thought woman would like a hero that is that cold hearted on Valentines day is just annoying.

    Story
    "Predictable"

    I chose this selection because I generally like the short story form and it was free. I wasn't expecting a formula romance, and I'm not a big fan of romance stories. If I had been buying it, I might have noticed that it was published by Harlequin and known it wasn't my type of story.
    The performance was fine and the story had a reasonable set up but patent and predictable. I thought it lacked depth and the little bit of intrigue didn't really go far enough.
