I got almost half way through listening and finally decided to stop listening and just buy the book and finish it on my Nook. The story really was a good story, but the narrator was just not very good at all.
Every title I finish in this series leaves me thinking it is better than the last. This was a heartwarming story. The characters are flawed, but redeemable. I enjoyed the strong Georgina (Gina) and how she rose to every occasion. The characters are very relatable. I was outraged that the dummy Earl didn’t even mention that he had two children until they arrived at his home! What a &%^*! However, Gina handles that too and teaches the Earl not only to love, but how to be a father and husband. Great story!
The other reviewers mention the narrator, but I thought it was fine. I believe a good narrator is one that makes you forget the story is being read and all you see is the story. This is certainly the case with this audible book.
I probably would not have finished this book had it not been for the wonderful narration. I downloaded this book and another in the series and literally could not finish the other because it was too hoaky. Now, when someone say's a romance novel is hoaky, that is BAD!
This is my first book narrated by Vanessa Hart. She has a voice very similar to one of my all time favorite narrators, Barbara Rosenblat, only more haunting. I don't remember what the story was about, but I do still hear her voice in my ears.
Loving my life and hanging out with my four grandchildren!
The plot and the overall story was very good. Enjoyed hearing how they come to love each other.
Didn't really have a favorite character.
I would change how she reads! What I mean is, she READ's well, but seems to make a statement sound like a question, or a question sound like a statement. Seems to add comma's where there should be none, than she sounds flat and uncaring when she should be very excited! Really made it hard to listen to the whole story.
I like how our hero comes to understand that he is in love with his new wife.
