Reverend Johnson is in the business of granting second chances to those deserving a new start, even if it means bending the rules of time travel on occasion. In Gabe McFarlain’s case, he may have gone too far... Abandoned by his father, and raised in a whorehouse, Gabe has grown bitter to the world. Fueled by revenge and hatred, his actions leave him facing the hangman’s noose. Accepting certain death, he wakes up in a time and place that is as foreign as the tender touch of the woman who rescues him.

Would you listen to Diamond in the Dust again? Why?

It is interesting and has new twist in throughout it. Great story and great voice narrating it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Gabe. I didn't like him in the previous book as a bad boy, but he changed and became a very good person and you fell in love with him and his heart.

Have you listened to any of Cody Roberts’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes and he is just as good in this story as the others. He has a voice that portrays the characters just right. Easy to listen to and makes the story interesting with the different tones.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Gabe saw the preacher again. Can't say any more or it will be a spoiler.

Any additional comments?

Great story with a lot of emotion and heart.

Would you listen to In His Eyes again? Why?

Yes! I love the story and Cody made it sound so real and made you feel like you were living it and hearing it in person.

What other book might you compare In His Eyes to and why?

In His Touch. The second book in this series that has the people from Through His Eyes in it. It tells the story of another character.

What does Cody Roberts bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Cody's voice is so easy to listen to and makes the story come to life.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

So many places in this story moved me. Hard to say them all without giving away spoilers. When you find out she is blind hits you in the heart for one reason.

Any additional comments?

I loved this story because it was so heartfelt and so true to life. The details and emotions were so intense that you felt so much apart of this story. Cody just added a reality and awareness to the story with his voice.

Where does A Yellowstone Promise rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top of the list. It brought all the characters from past books together like a family reunion. It was a well narrated story.

What other book might you compare A Yellowstone Promise to and why?

Yellowstone Redemption and Yellowstone Deception. We meet Chase in the first one and Jana and Dan in the second one.
I love how they all got to meet again in Yellowstone Promise.

Which character – as performed by Nick Sarando – was your favorite?

Chase. He sounded so much as he would sound in your head when reading about him. The smart attitude comes across and the gentleness to Sarah comes across strongly. I think Nick did an excellent job with the voices in this book especially with Chase.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Yellowstone Promise and Old Friends.

Any additional comments?

This was a wonderful story to listen to that took you back to old friends and a family you fell in love with. Nick did a great job of telling the story and highlighting the writers events as she had written them. I loved reading the books and love hearing them on audio.

Where does Yellowstone Redemption rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

IT ranks close to the top. I loved the story and the audio made the characters seem alive and real.

What other book might you compare Yellowstone Redemption to and why?

Yellowstone Heart Song, where this all started. This is the next generation of Daniel and Aimee Osborne's family.

What does Nick Sarando bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Nick, brings out the individual characters personality and gives your imagination a different view from reading the story.
Nick readings of this story:. The first few chapters he read to fast and sentences ran together, but the overall story he read was wonderful. Just my opinion.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed all through the book. Sarah's knowledge of how to do things in the wild county and then the inexperience of the highly popular quarterback Chase, learning new ways to survive had me smiling.

Any additional comments?

This is a wonderful story full of trials, suspense and a romance that grows from new experiences in the wild mountains of the Yellowstone. Chase going from a football hero in his time into a Yellowstone hero 200 years in the pastime.
Highly recommend this book along with Yellowstone Heart Song!

What made the experience of listening to Teton Sunrise the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed the sound of emotions the adventure, the excitement and voices brought to life.

What other book might you compare Teton Sunrise to and why?

Yellowstone Heart Song because it was in the Mountains of the Yellowstone and had all the adventure and excitement of being in the wilderness. Both books show tough mountain men have hearts full of love and protection for their families.

What about Steve Marvel’s performance did you like?

I liked his voice on telling the story and of the men. I didn't care for his voice representing Evelyn. He made her sound whiney and she was not a whiney character. Her character was strong and defiant. Sarah's voice sounded just like you would picture her at that young age. Aimee's voice was right on also.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Love in the Tetons

I liked the story and hearing it in audio always brings it to life. Makes the characters have more depth to them.

Where does Ain't No Angel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best I have heard.

What did you like best about this story?

.I liked the second half when Laney got to work with the horses and Tyler and her talked and communicated more while out riding. They became closer by learning about each other. He also saw how she worked with horses. Laney had showed him that she knew how to take care of sick and injured horses.

What about Cody D. Roberts’s performance did you like?

I loved Cody's voice of all the characters. The men were sexy and strong and Laney sounded soft not whiney like others I have heard for a woman. Cody has just the right amount of a twang that makes him sound so sexy, but not overdone.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I cried when Tyler brought Laney to his ranch and left her by her self in her room. I felt sad because Tyler didn't trust Laney.She felt so alone, not knowing what she was to do. I got anger with Gabe for treating Laney so badly trying to save himself. I loved when Tyler took Laney out riding, looking at the horses.

Any additional comments?

I liked the way it came alive with audio and gave me a new imagination and insight by hearing the story. This story brings out a lot of emotion in a reader. Well written story. Highly recommend listening to it.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes! It brought this story to life. You could picture the story more clearly and feel the emotions of each character.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the time travel to a wagon train and how Jake found a way to get a second chance in life along with falling in love. He never thought either would happen.

What does Cody Roberts bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Cody brought a real sexy voice to Jake Owens, a softer tone for Rachel Parker and a mono tone for the narrator. He made the characters seem real. He was easy to listen to and made the story flow with excitement and emotions.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I wanted to listen to this story for a long time and didn't want it to end.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed listening to this story. The book made you feel like you were there in the story, but the audio version let you feel the movement and hear the voices of the characters.
I liked how Cody, changed his tones with each voice. It kept the story interesting and never boring.
