Another lovely story from Lorraine Heath but the reader is disappointing, especially after we heard the other stories in this series wonderfully read ..Show More »by Susan Ericksen! All the characters sound the same! Where is Susan when we need her?!
Sweet revenge...turns out sweeter than one might think.
Slow Start...Blazingly Wonderful Finish.
This book didn't grab me right away..Show More ». I found that I didn't mind taking a break from it during the first half. Then the second half started and I never wanted to press pause!! When the attraction started to grow...the maid next door came into the picture....animals were brought into the picture..THIS STORY TOOK OFF!
It didn't take long for me to like Phee (she was not so likeable in the first few hours) and of course I loved Drake from the beginning. The chemistry was palpable.
This book also featured a couple of dark elements that Heath includes in her books...but telling you is a spoiler so just know there are some triggers for some listeners.
I craved more detail about Drake's relationship with his adopted parents Sterling and Frannie....and boy I was rewarded with moments requiring massive amounts of tissue!!! Like.... sobbing with happiness.
It seems the narrator took some of the suggestions that many reviewers had from the first book to heart (or she's just growing on me) because she seems to be better in this book. One of the major problems I had with the narrator in the last book was she made Frannie sound like a cockney commoner.....but in this book she makes Frannie and Sterling sound like they're 900 years old. I know they're getting up in years but I just would have rather her tone down the way she portrayed Frannie and Sterling in this book.
Worth a credit....listen to all Heath's books in order though for the full affect. (Go to her website...more helpful than Audible for a chronological listing) Loved this installment....on to Avendale's story!!!
