This was a fantastic book, so well written and with everything that I love. The narrator added so much to this experience I think that Celeste Ciulla did a wonderful job with all the characters it was very easy to know who was speaking.
I like Irene Hannon's stories and was glad to see a new one was available. I wish I had bought the print version instead of the Audible recording. While I found the story good, the narration was not. More than once I turned it off and considered returning it. I'm not sure how to discribe what I so disliked. Celeste Ciulla does not do male voices well and there were many times that I wasn't sure which character was speaking. The thing that really annoyed me was her inflection and emphasis. Many times she sounded like a fifth grader that the teacher warned to watch puncuation and to add emotion when you read. Ms. Ciulla is not whiney or shrill, just flat with force emotion. On the whole the narrator ruined this listen for me. She is certainly not the worst I've heard but I will think twice about using a credit on another of her performances.
The story line was okay. A bit predictible, but interesting.
Yes. It wasn't too bad. Passes the time.
The narrator is the main reason I'm leaving a review. As a person, I'm sure that she's lovely, and she has a great voice. BUT she pauses in all the wrong places and the voices she uses for different characters just doesn't fit. It just doesn't flow and can be very annoying.
Good book, not so good narrator.
First book by this author,but definitely not the last! Smooth narration and couldn't wait to find out what happened next. I really enjoyed the storyline and the characters were very relatable. I will be downloading the next in the series right now :-)
You won't be sorry if you get this book, I found it very interesting, and some romance, but as other book's I have listened to, most of them had sex in them, this was just a very good audio book with good romance, Be sure to get the whole series. as the next one just get's better.
