The reader was captivating and the story was good enough to make me hope there is a second book. I want to know what happens to the characters as they go through life.
This book was disappointing in many ways. I think Nora should take a break and quit spitting out so many books. The main character is so self-depricating I want to slap her. And she complains too much of what she didn't have growing up. It's frustrating.
Another point of frustration has nothing to do with Nora Roberts and everything to do with the narrator. I live in the south, have always lived in the south, and we do not have accents like this woman employs. The hero of the story sounded like a pompous dandy, not a southern good ole boy that you'd want to have an affair with. We do NOT sound like that down here in the land of Dixie. The entire book, read by this narrator and combined with Nora's lack of compelling style, makes it seem like a really bad episode of "Dallas".
Had a hard time keeping up with the story. Good enough plot, I guess. Kept me occupied in the car, which is worth it, I suppose. The narrator's annoying habit of ending sentences at barely a whisper made it impossible to listen with the car radio at a decent level. I'll avoid books read by her in the future.
In print format? Sure. As an audiobook? Not unless I didn't like them very much.
This is a great book in print, but the reader is awful. Listening to her is not only boring, but confusing. I'll have to agree with other comments here and say that she sounds like a mix of Janet Reno and William Shatner, and portrays the young female main character in a way that makes it pretty well impossible to not picture her as a stuffy middle aged woman. Who wears boxy blazers with shoulder pads. And has giant feathered bangs. Not good. As much as I enjoy this book, there's no way I could listen to this reader for 14 hours.
I joyed reading this book and thought the audiobook would be fun to listen to. However it isn't because narrator whispers constantly and you can't hear what she says. Also There isn't much difference between the men and women's voices
I love listening to audibles !
this story was just boring it was meant to be a mystery but because the narrator was so bad it dragged on to just be a tediously boring story
