Loved Kyle and Kenzie. They are not your typical H/h. When she nicknamed him Shaggy I was hooked. Kyle had some growing up to do and he did it. I loved how Kenzie helped so many on Marooned. Just a great ride. I couldn't sleep until I finished the book, it was that good.

I enjoyed this story. The secrets were slowly revealed and the relationship slowly developed. But the story didn't seem slow at all. Quite a joy to listen to.

Not nearly as good as the first two Kincaid books. I'm usually a fan of Rosalind James' books but this one fell flat. And I could never tell who was talking in the narration when there was more than one woman or more than one man in the scene. All the women sounded the same as did the men.

I listened obsessively till I was done. A bit too much sex, but I just fast forwarded through it. Too graphic for my tastes but loved the story enough to bypass it. Emma Wilder is extraordinary. Her men sound like rough and ready MEN. Amazing. Love the series but absolutely adore Emma Wilder's narration. She brought me to tears a couple of times.

It's almost a coming of age story for women of a "certain age". The book that Mona is writing parallels her life to some degree. I love the way Mona navigates her way through practice dating and then some of her disastrous dates. There are some really funny parts sprinkled throughout. Best of all was the narration by Gillian Vance. Her phrasing and emphasis MADE this book. I highly recommend this whether you're a fan of romance or not. Great fun.

This wonderful story about Toby and Lily and Anna and Nick was amazing. It was an emotional roller coaster ride. I thoroughly enjoyed the audible edition. Thank you, Tess Woods, for sharing this beautiful journey with Muslim and secular/Christian cultures, showing how we can live and love together.

I love the story and all the details about the tension between the Roman and Celtic churches. The narrator, unfortunately, does not provide any discernable distinction in voice or accent between characters - the men sound just like the women and everyone has an Irish accent. I guess I'm spoiled by other narrators who are able to change voice and diction to match the characters.

So much of this book had me saying, “Oh Yes!”. Had I been reading it, everything would have been underlined. Listening was lovely but I wish the narrator had known how to pronounce Acoma. Picky, I know.

Love the characterizations. All were fleshed out. Especially appreciate dealing a bit with the racial bias in England against Indians.
