When new next-door neighbors Georgia, Midge, and Lula first assembled on Georgia's porch in Charleston for sweet tea, they couldn't have known their gathering was the beginning of a treasured tradition. For 26 years they have met on Tuesdays at four o'clock, watching the seasons change and their children grow up, supporting each other in good times and in bad. With their ambitions as different as their personalities, these best friends anticipate many more years of tea time.

In the six years since her bitter and angry divorce, Bess Curran has built a successful, independent life in the St. Croix riverside town of Stillwater, Minnesota. But unforeseen circumstances reunite her with Michael, her ex-husband, when Lisa, her 21-year-old daughter, announces she is pregnant and plans to marry. As Lisa's antagonistic parents try to absorb this news, she announces her intention to wear her mother's wedding dress and ask her parents to walk her down the aisle - together.

The taping of narration is absolutely horrific. I can’t beleive audible released it with such bad taping. This is a book I have hoped would be offered but they should not have not published it with this narration.

Attorney Caine MacGregor had a reputation for being a demon in and out of the courtroom. The dashing young attorney rarely met a case - or a woman - he couldn't win. But Diana Blade was no ordinary lady. Caine yearned to break down her icy wall of control and release the passionate woman within. He might be able to convince Diana to form a business partnership, but could he entice her to risk everything for the love of a MacGregor?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This narrator is truly absolutely horrible. I cannot believe audible has not taken the time to listen to her. Unbelievable.

What could Nora Roberts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Different narrator

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Painful to listen to her. Absolutely awful.

Christmas is the last thing on Cole Barrett's mind this year. He's barely hanging on trying to care for his two grieving children since his ex-wife died in a tragic accident. For the reclusive Cole, this is no time for gift giving and celebration - and certainly not for a sunny-natured optimist to blow into his screwed-up life. Physician Devin Shaw has long researched the curative powers of Lake Haven's mineral waters. Unfortunately the hot springs are on Barrett property, forcing Devin to strike a bargain.

Would you try another book from RaeAnne Thayne and/or Celeste Ciulla?

Yes I love the author. But I have to remember to not purchase books with this narrator. She is s truly awful. Worse than nails on a chalkboard feeling. Ugh..

What did you like best about this story?

This author has is fun.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Celeste Ciulla?

Anybody!

Was Evergreen Springs worth the listening time?

If you can get past the narrator.

Any additional comments?

I wonder how f audible listens to their narrators?

It's not easy being the Queen of Broken Hearts. While Clare has no problem helping the hundreds of men and women who seek her advice to mend their broken hearts, healing her own is another matter entirely. But falling in love again is the last thing she wants.

This audio was the worst I have ever heard. Not only the person narrating it but the whole content was aweful would not recommend it to the most bored person in the world.
