This is truly one of the worst written books I've ever encountered. So much of it is told in summary, so much of it contradicts itself, so much of it just is terrible plot planning. you can't have characters all of a sudden say they know how to deliver babies or character who all of a sudden know how to get out of bindings. the reader doesn't suck, so thanks for trying to make this book less painful.

The infant management concepts presented in this book have found favor with over two million parents and twice as many contented babies. On Becoming Babywise brings hope to the tired and bewildered parents looking for an alternative to sleepless nights and fussy babies.

My sister and I had babies within two months of each other. She bought the paperback and I bought the audiobook. It took me nearly seven months to realize I had been RIPPED OFF. The audiobook doesn't even come close to the actual book. Not only does it not include any of the sample schedules for sleeping and feeding, but near as I can tell, the chapters aren't the same at all. This might be worthwhile in paperback and you can get it at a used store for practically nothing, but SKIP THE AUDIOBOOK. It lacks enough detail to be useful.

The book lacks any real character development plot or motivation. This is one of the worst books I read in the past 5 years; I couldn't finish it.

Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

So Slow...Lack of Plot and Dragging Narration.

The book lacks tension, aside from the ghost which is not mentioned in the blurb. I avoid ghost books and I enjoy romance novels that have something that drives the plot. This tells the slow boring story of old friends who start dating and run into zero bumps or hurdles. Multiply this by the incredibly slow narration, and you've got for one boring book. In fact, I fell asleep twice while listening to this book.

I'm really disappointed because I usually really like Nora Roberts, and in theory, I enjoyed the characters, but that's not enough to make me ever listen to this story again.
