I always read reviews before purchasing books. When I found this book, I read the reviews and found 1 positive and 1 negative so I decided to check i..Show More »t out for myself. Oh boy am I glad I did. I couldn't stop listening to this story! I really wanted to find out what happened to Dara. I LOVED this book. It is well written (although a little in the realm of HALLMARK). The characters are well developed and the story is clear.
The narrator did a very good job. I kept thinking, o.k. that negative review had to be a personal attack because there is no way anyone could mistake the different characters or their voices.
Maybe it's because I come from a educator background that I relate so well with the main character but she totally caught and kept my attention. I wanted to adopt the little boy, Chad and what a hunk Jared was not to mention what a stand-up kind of guy....if only. I look forward to listening to more stories from this series. And, I hope it's the SAME narrator.
Heartland Illusions:Heartmates, Book 2 Very Nice..
I enjoyed the first book in the series, even though they are a little bit cheesy. These books are good, clean, romantic with a unique twist for t..Show More »he hero and heroine.
However, this one went a bit too far for my taste. The main character, Heather is a ventriloquist whose family holds shows in Branson, Missouri. It wasn't too bad until she began talking to her dummies!
Her family is under investigation because there has been some activity that resulted in identity theft and the one connection to all of them is the gift shop at their show.
Gage is a cop assigned to the case. He seems to have the patience of Job as the story unfolded rather slowly, in my opinion.
The overall message of these books is good, heartwarming with the message that is needed. As I stated, this one was a bit weird for my taste.
Narrated by Amanda Fugate-Moss was very good. I enjoyed her performance. 4 solid stars for the narration.
Notes: There is nothing to warn of here. A good message in a unique story.
Stars: Overall 4, performance 4 & Story 3.
This was an above average story line with the great narrator.
