It was boring.
Someone who talks normally. It's like she's reading to a child.
All the repetitive ones.
I really like some of Nora Roberts books. Black Hills, The Search, and The Collector were all good ones but I just gave up on this one halfway through.
Yes I really enjoyed this book. The narrator is good and keeping my attention and I am very fussy about what narrators I give my credit to.
I like the heroine and hero both.
She gets the accent and is not grating on my ears and her voice varies in the conversations for each character. I really believed I was listening to two people not to a monologue by a bored narrator.
The whole book was good, not one scene stood out but it flowed along nicely and kept me entertained and took my mind off of life's pressing problems. It is a good escape.
I recommend some of Nora Roberts other books if you like this one, her series with Blue Dahlia, Black Rose and Red Lily is a good trio set in Tennessee and has the right amount of Spice and Steamy and characters are very likeable.
The Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts starting with Vision in White, Bed of Roses, Savor the Moment and Happy Ever After and her Inn at Boonsboro series with the The Girl Next Door, The Last Boyfriend and the The Perfect Hope.
Loved the way Nora Roberts used the artist talent of the male lead to strengthen the relationship with Cilla , so many clever references and the comic book twist was enjoyable.
Great listen. Well presented. Enjoyed from start to finish
Have read the book. Bought so I could listen whilst travelling. Good emotion with the narrating. Sometimes listening can heighten the impact of reading
Say something about yourself!
yes, I'll listen to this again, mostly because of Ford. Loved the graphic novel aspect. Very enjoyable.
I'm glad that I did not let the poor reviews of this narrator stop my from giving this a listen. I had NO problem with her as a narrator.
I loved the way I immediately was able to picture the house in my head! The twists in the story.
The first time she invites him to her house for a beer.
I truly enjoyed this book. I adore her trilogies, and was hesitant to read a stand alone. However I was plesantly surpised. I enjoyed the characters, while the story was a trifle convaluted.
"Everyone is slightly too good to be true"
Over-written, over-long, predictable
Not sure I'm going to get there.......And I have greatly enjoyed two other books by this author
Her ability to mimic gentle Southern accents is unprecedented - and she can give specific characteristics to each person in the story.
Too repetitious for that.
This is the third Nora Roberts I've read and will probably be the last, as her female characters are all beginning to seem the same: dominating, courageous, independent; and her men are all just too good to be true. Her characters needs some human flaws!!
