The narration was all over the place, and REALLY painful. I even tried to speed up the narration.... it didn't help. After the first book, I was hoping that the second two were narrated by different narrators, I think it tainted my view of the last two books before I even began.
Maybe, if they had a different narrator.
Her various and inconsistent accents really made it difficult to stick with the book and get into the stories. I thought the Northeast and Irish(?) accents were painful in The Sins of His Past, but the Southern accents in Whatever Reilly Wants were horrific. May have been better to have just read the book, instead of listening to them.
No one character disturbed me, but again I had a hard time getting into the stories. It was the narrator.
The narration was so horrible it distracted from the stories. The narrator did not do a good job with the different characters. Her attempt at an Irish accent failed. I have read 2 of the 3 authors previously and loved the books. I would not buy another book with this narrator even if it came from one of my favorite authors.
Anger that I wasted a credit on it
I would try another book by these authors ( I do like Jill Shalvis books), but not with this narrator. She has an obvious Australian accent which doesn't fit at all with an Irish bar outside of Boston. Like many books, you can have a great story that would be an excellent read, but with the wrong person reading it, it loses it's appeal.
I have several books by Jill Shalvis and am very happy with them. I am not familiar with the other authors and might be willing to try them again.
Therese Plummer or Patricia Daniels. Anyone who can do an Irish accent!
Again, the stories were good, it's just hard to listen to someone who is completely wrong as narrator.
There is a reason to sample a book before you buy it. That is what I should have done since I would not have bought this had I listened to it first.
