The story just wasn’t for me. I found it very difficult to stay interested in a book of match making and gave up after listening for about an hour. I found it very tedious to listen to so much nonsense. The narration was excellent.

I had high hopes that this book would be as good as the All Souls but sadly it fell far short of the previous books. Even the narration was no where near as good. The story was just okay. It was quite a let down from her previous great books. Sigh

I would like to add that I would buy the book again if they redid it with the wonderful narrator who did the first three books! She brought the books to life with her narration. Sigh

For the airline executives finalizing a merger that would make news in the business world, the nine a.m. meeting would be a major milestone.

The NYPSD’s Eve Dallas confirms that Rogan was cruelly coerced by two masked men holding his family hostage. His motive was saving his wife and daughter - but what was the motive of the masked men?

When they were growing up, Dana, Harper, and Tawny thought of themselves as “sometimes sisters.” They connected only during the summer month they’d all spend at their grandmother’s rustic lakeside resort in north Texas. But secrets started building, and ten years have passed since they’ve all been together—in fact, they’ve rarely spoken, and it broke their grandmother’s heart.

This was an excellent book. My only complaint was that she had the people talking like east Texans. People in north Texas do not have accents that are that pronounced. The accents didn't take away from the story, but I do wish folks could get Texas accents correct.

The ending was very touching and I would recommend this book.

Book one was interesting. Book two was so bad I almost stopped listening. Book 2.5 was just okay. Book 3 was very good. I only rolled my eyes once in book three. Overall just to listen to book one and three it was worth the credit. Because book three was very good I will continue the series.

Book three almost five stars.

Katherine Lowry Logan has the ability to bring charactors to life in her books. I’d already read The Amber Brooch but wanted to listen to Teri Schnaubelt read it. I enjoyed the book all over again. The Celtic Brooch series has been a wonderful series of books. They make me wish I were Irish and part of Elliott’s clan. Well worth the credit!
