The book itself is not Garwood's best. There is a lot of editorial issues For example one character refers to a pair of sheets instead of a set of she..Show More »ets. There are a lot of other such problems. Beyond that, there is way too much unnecessary narration that doesn't add to or carry the story.
This makes for a mediocre story way less than the quality expected from Ms. Garwood.
Add to that a horrible performance of the narration. The heroine starts out having a little accent that is even referred to in the narration, but very quickly the accent goes away and never comes back. For the rest of the book her voice is simply Miss Bedroom voice.
The male voices are horrid. Nothing else can be said about them.
The narration pulls the already mediocre story into the 2 star rating.
I didn't want the story to end. I laughed, cheered and just plain couldn't stop listening. This is a wonderful story set in the bayous of Louisiana. T..Show More »he charm of the plain folks, and the Boston attorney who, was accepted and coerced by everyone to remain there won me over swiftly. The story was riveting and you couldn't help cheering for the good guys to win. Michelle and Theo are very likable as a couple and you can't help but think they were intended for each other. Give this one a try you will enjoy it as I did. About the narrator, she did a fantastic job. It is very hard to emulate a southern, cajun accent. I grew up in New Orleans and trust me when I say it is hard to speak the way they do unless you are born there. So my hat is off to you MS.Taister you did a credible job switching between a Bostonian accent to a Cajun dialect, even throwing in a twang of Mississipian.
