Publisher's Summary

It's Romeo and Juliet all over again.... As a teen Maddy Harvey was a bit of an ugly duckling. Luckily she's blossomed since then, and Maddy thanks God for this small miracle when a tall, handsome stranger comes to her rescue one starry summer's night.

But instant attraction turns to a disaster in the making when Maddy learns the identity of her superman: Kerr McKinnon. Of all the colorful residents of the small Cotswold town of Ashcombe, why did it have to be him? Because, as family feuds go, the Montagues and the Capulets have nothing on the Harveys and the McKinnons.

Dumb Premise

The premise of Falling for You was just too dumb. Maddy's family hates Kerr's entire family because his brother killed Maddy's sister by driving recklessly as a teen. Sorry, but blaming an entire family for the actions of one person is stupid, immature and how wars get started.

When Maddy (now an adult) and others allowed this family grudge to influence their lives, I lost all interest in this book. While there were some entertaining parts, I winced every time a supposedly mature person acted like a bratty child.

Awful Narrator!!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A UK-born narrator.

What other book might you compare Falling for You to and why?

You and me, Always by Jill Mansell!!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

They could have chosen a British person to narrate one of my favourite books. The terribly fake 'English' accent, with a hard to hide American twang, took far too much away from the story. It broke my heart to have to hear it, but I give props to the narrator for trying so very hard.

Any additional comments?

I think Susie Riddell is the perfect narrator for Mansell's novels. Shes' Wonderful!!!!

Not a British narrator.

I enjoy this author because of her British humor and expected that all of the narrators would be British as well. Not the case with this one - I couldn’t finish the book because the accent was all wrong.

Falling for you

The book itself was up to the normal Jill Mansell standard but the narrator's accent was off putting. I almost didn't listen but persisted. Glad I did but will be reluctant to purchase another read by Molly O'Malley.

The narration makes the book unbearable

I read this book many years ago and it was light and sweet as all Jill mansell's books are. Good for a mindless smile. Listening to this book though?? The narrator BUTCHERS it. I couldn't bear to listen to it, even in the background.

Narrator was just awful!

Narrator had an awful accent and pronounced words in the strangest way. Almost could not complete the audio book was very off putting.

I suggest listening to a sample before you purchase.

Story line was ok. A bit weak at the end.

Great book as always by Jill Mandell.

Loved the book. Made me laugh and cry. The narrator sounds like a good actress but she does a terrible English accent. Too American. Next time hire an actual English woman.

It's a happy story that will lift your mood!

The author creates a visual of each character and you can imagine hearing them with the great performance.

Accent

Seriously, the fake British accent almost ruined it for me. Need to rethink the narrator.

Narration ruined the book

I enjoy all Jill Mansell books in both print and audio...until now.

The over effected 'British' accent that fell into the voice actors apparent natural American inflection and the constant over pronunciation of the letter 'a' made this painful to listen to.
