Publisher's Summary

Finally out of the celebrity spotlight and away from her mother's demands, Cilla is free to do what she loves: fixing up houses for profit. But her current project is personal. The Shenandoah Valley farm house was once the vacation home of Hollywood luminary Janet Hardy, Cilla's grandmother.

When Cilla uncovers a stash of her grandmother's private letters, and begins asking questions about the past, she becomes the target of a crazed killer who's determined to keep family secrets buried no matter what the cost.

    "I couldn't finish it"
    What would have made Tribute better?

    Anything


    What could Nora Roberts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It was boring.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Van Dyck?

    Someone who talks normally. It's like she's reading to a child.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Tribute?

    All the repetitive ones.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Good narrator and story don't believe negative"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like the heroine and hero both.


    What about Jennifer Van Dyck’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Cilla was a character you could relate to"

    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"
    What made the experience of listening to Tribute the most enjoyable?

    Great listen. Well presented. Enjoyed from start to finish


    What does Jennifer Van Dyck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Have read the book. Bought so I could listen whilst travelling. Good emotion with the narrating. Sometimes listening can heighten the impact of reading

    "Totally Enjoyed"
    Would you listen to Tribute again? Why?

    yes, I'll listen to this again, mostly because of Ford. Loved the graphic novel aspect. Very enjoyable.


    Have you listened to any of Jennifer Van Dyck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.

    The first time she invites him to her house for a beer.

    "Quintessential Nora Roberts"

    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.

    "Good Book"

    I thought this book was really good. Just don't watch that TV movie version, it'll ruin the book for you, as it did for me.

    Story
    "Everyone is slightly too good to be true"
    If you could sum up Tribute in three words, what would they be?

    Over-written, over-long, predictable


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Not sure I'm going to get there.......And I have greatly enjoyed two other books by this author


    What does Jennifer Van Dyck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Her ability to mimic gentle Southern accents is unprecedented - and she can give specific characteristics to each person in the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too repetitious for that.


    Any additional comments?

    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!!
