The first installment to the Bella Terra series by Christina Dodd is a captivating introduction to the intriguing Di Luca family; including three Di L..Show More »uca brothers, raised by their beloved matriarch and grandmother. Their loyalty to each other; their complete devotion to their grandmother, and their commitment to preserve their family heritage, defines them.
An exciting, mysterious family secret that began more than 80 years ago is the catalyst to the dangers and hostilities that have resulted from years and generations of Italian families feuding. And of course there is romance, passion, conflict, and love.
Carol Monda’s performance was good, but didn’t vary enough to be able to identify each character by voice. While there are other narrators who are better at changing voices for each character, the story is worth the listen.
Definitely credit worthy and planning to jump right into “Revenge at Bella Terra”, Book 2! Enjoy!
Revenge at Bella Terra by Christina Dodd (Book 2) is even better than “Secrets” (Book 1), earning a 5 star overall rating from me!
“Revenge” ..Show More »is the story of Eli and Chloe, serious opposites who are seriously adorable. I really loved these characters. They were complex and simple all at the same time; funny and intelligent. The oldest Di Luca brother graced with the Di Luca Family charm, and Chloe, an only child, full of spirit and whit.
The second installment of the Bella Terra series far exceeded my expectations. The mystery continues to develop, as the family members, in particular, Eli and Chloe, are once again the targets of lurking dangers surrounding the family secret. Carol Monda is the narrator again, as in book 1. I gave her 4 stars this time (last time- only 3). Her voices could still vary more between characters, but for some reason, it didn’t seem to bother me as much as before.
Definitely credit worthy! Next book…”Betrayal at Bella Terra”, Book3...I cannot wait…Enjoy!
What a great conclusion to a wonderful series!! This series did not have one dull book in it. Each one seemed to get better than the next. I read t..Show More »he series back to back which I rarely have the opportunity to do, but I am so glad I did. I really was drawn into the characters and the description of Bella Valley. Thank you Christina Dodd for a wonderful series!
