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

Narrative is off but story is good.

Listening to the narration was a little rough. The story was great. Narrator needs some work! The expressions in the voice wasn’t what the book was portraying.

Terrible

I struggled to finish it. The characters were terrible with no redeeming qualities. They had no chemistry and the narrator only made that worse. All around TERRIBLE!

Adequate story with less than adequate voice portrayal

The narration part is fine but the attempts of the characters voices were hard to listen to. The voices didn’t match the characters nor their expressions and such. I love Nora Roberts but this was a hard one to complete.

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.
