Decent book but terrible narration..



Up until 34% when I said I was going to start skimming I wasn’t thrilled with this story. However, I ended liking it a great deal. Since the hero was killed the night he and Ellen met I was a little bit dubious. But, Corey ended up being a ghost and “vowed” to find Ellen the “perfect” husband. And as time passed they fell in love and she sacrificed herself and told Corey’s cousin, Lorenzo, she’d marry him so Corey could go wherever ghosts went.

It turned out to be a good story and I admit I did cry when Corey went away after Ellen’s betrothal was announced. But not before she told him she did it for him because she loved him.

Anyway, I knew something was going to happen when Fenton, the old man that cared for the horses, showed up again and again.

There was some desire in this but no hint of sex and no swearing. Definitely Rated –G.

As to the narration: Not sure about Lynne Jensen. She really tried to make the men sound like men but every one of them sounded awful, except Corey, he sounded just fine. As for Ellen, she sounded like a squeaky teenager and Marian sounded like a grouchy old woman and Reggie, Lorenzo, and Kenneth Pratt sounded like stuffy old men. Although, Reggie and Lorenzo were very nice gentlemen. AND she read without emotions.

I got the audible through the Romance Package for free and the book from Amazon for $2.51. So, well worth it.

Sweet and Fluffy

Heroine falls in love with a ghost -- and the story is much less angst-ridden than your average romance. No one behaves inexplicably (even though one protagonist is deceased) and the heroine is not a moron. Refreshing.

The narrator is not great with Scottish or American accents. But if this does not distract you, then it is a pleasant listen.
