I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Weak narrator that doesn't give this book her all, I often couldn't distinguish between which characters were talking ruined this listen for me, coupled with a so/so plot makes this a so/so listen.
Worth a credit? No, not in my opinion, there's much better Highlander books out there which has spoilt me for lesser ones.
Terry never fails to entertain-she offers fun adventures and takes you places you have never been and could never go to except in her stories. Always happy to read the next book as soon as it comes out. Great escape.
I couldn't even get through the first hour of this book unfortunately....only because of the narrator. She was horrible....went so fast and with no expression in her voice that I couldn't even follow what she was saying. I had no idea what was going on in the story so I turned it off and bought a different book. Too bad.......Somebody...please Somebody...listen to these narrators and determine if they are worth the money of an audiobook!!! Bad Bad Bad.
I've read Terry Spear's books and they are great. The narrator ruined this one for me though.
No. She doesn't have a lot of emotion in her narration. It was hard to distinguish the characters. I felt like she barely paused, it was fast even after slowing it down. I found myself zoning out throughout the entire read. I've read the book version and it was much better.
Not if Maxine Lennon was involved.
A quality narrator can make a bad story good. With that said, a good story can be ruined by a bad narrator.
That even though this story was placed in the past, Lady Anice was a very strong independent woman.
Wonderful storyline. Lady Anice and Laird Malcolm were able to find out who set about taking over her land.
I did not particularly care for Ms. Lennon's narration. But her narration did not detract from the story.
I really enjoy Terry Spear's writing. I think that through her writing and descriptions, the reader is able to be transported into the story.
I am a 57 year old book addict. I started out reading Daniel Steele and Sidney Shelton novels 30 years ago. Since then I have added literally hundreds of authors. I take the time to write reviews on books that sweep me away. So if I have really loved that particular book. There have been a couple over the years I reviewed because I truly hated them too.
I don't know if I would recommend this book to a friend.
I enjoyed killing a cold winter day with this book.
The story has humor, mystery, and love. I wasn't thrilled with
the reader. She didn't seem to breath.
The scene in the cottage with the villians so close.
Maybe. I wouldn't search her out though.
No. Last movie I went to see was Fatal Attraction
when it first came out.
Please find more male readers. They are easier to listen to.
