Blithe Images

Typically fun Nora Robert's story but painful reader! Her emphasis on words is overdone and miscued.

Good story Bad narration

Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Ashley Adlon?

I love Nora Roberts' books but was very disappointed in the narration of this book. I would be very cautious about purchasing another book narrated by Ashley Adlon. I found the tone and inflections used in interpreting the characters very irritating especially the male characters.

How could the performance have been better?

If the male characters had not sounded so abrupt and high-handed I feel it would have been much better.

The story was ok.

The narrator didn't do the story justice, I didn't like the way she did the voices of the characters

Not my favorite

This has been my least favorite of Nora Roberts' books. The story line wasn't the best in my opinion. I finished listening to it but couldn't wait to get it over with.

very bad reader!

I've read this book so I knew the plot. [it's simple, light-hearted-and fun] I don't sleep well, so I thought this would be a good audio to listen to at 3am.
The reader ruined it for me.
1. she reads it too fast.
2. she ruined the feel of the book.
3.she doesn't do emotions well.
4. she made the girl sound like a spoiled idiot -Nora didn't write it that way.
I wasted my money on this one.
I gave it 2 stars because it's a Nora Roberts book; I would give it a -minus10 stars for the reader.
