I have enjoyed many, many of NR's books. I didn't enjoy this one as much but it is an okay read. Could have just been timing for me. I will always purchase her books and give'em a try because she writes stories I enjoy.
I usually like everything I read by Nora Roberts, but this book was a bit of a disappointment. The main character(Gwen came off as very immature and churlish, and she seemed incredibly stupid for acting on an assumption that could have been easily clarified. Since she and Luke had this explosive chemistry between them, how hard would it have been for her to just ask if he had been involved with her mother? Since this is the premise of the entire book, I found myself rolling my eyes several times over the sheer lunacy of it all. And the fact that Gwen blamed Luke for everything rather than taking any responsibility for her own actions was just ridiculous.
The narrator did a good job with the southern accents, but that only made Gwen's southern belle character even more annoying. Not Nora's best work.
It was very slow and didn't keep my interest. I could have stopped in the middle and never finished it. The story was predictable and not what I've come to know from Nora Roberts.
No. I love me some romance novels. This one just didn't strike my fancy.
The performance was fine.
There were quite a few times that a thought or action was reiterated. After the third time I start thinking, "All right, I get it!"
feeling the connection between Gwen and Luke
Gwen and Luke fishing
neither gave me hope true love can happen
I love Nora Roberts she is a outstanding author!!!!!
Love this story and think is was a good listen, put a smile on my face!
A better story as well as the accents. I couldn't get into the story at all and I love Nora Roberts.
I have no clue. Maybe this was written on a bad day or just the narrator
The simpleton Louisiana accents. It made me think of a civil war plantation house. Ugh
Have no idea I stopped half way through
It was cheap, it's the only reason I got it but I have never stopped listening to a book before. I just couldn't take it. The accents were killing me
This book was good, kept my interest and was worth the price ($4.95). Very typical Nora Roberts book (which is a good thing).
a little more "meat" in it would be nice.
a little weak, very predictable
I listen while I drive, it was entertaining.
It keeps you on suspense until the end. Lovely story. Four starts
She performs beautifully, leading the story with its characters, but leaving margin to your imagination.
Yes, make it less predictable
Too much of trying to portray the character rather than read the story.
more background story of the characters. They were not very well developed.
It must be an early Nora Roberts book - her other books are much better.
