Publisher's Summary

Maddie Chester is determined to leave her hometown of Gansett Island, a place that has brought her only bad memories and ugly rumors. Then she’s knocked off her bike on the way to her housekeeping job at McCarthy’s Resort Hotel by Gansett’s "favorite son", Mac McCarthy. He’s back in town to help his father with preparations to sell the family resort and has no intention of staying long. When Mac accidentally sends Maddie flying over the handlebars, badly injuring her, he moves in to nurse her back to health and help care for her young son. He soon realizes his plans for a hit-and-run visit to the island are in serious jeopardy, and he just may be "maid" for love.

    "Sweet Romance"

    This is a light, sweet romance. Entertaining characters, especially Maddie. She is a tough single mom who has been through a lot and it was interesting to see Mac dismantle all of the walls she built up around herself.

    I am looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.

    Story
    "Hated Maddie"

    She was a bitch from start to finish. I thought for sure the grand gesture at the end was gonna come from her. He was her whipping boy and she clearly did NOT love him. She spent the first half punishing him for other men's behavior and second half punishing him for his mothers behavior. At the end she could easily take or leave him with minimal thought to anything else including her son. She was a worse shrew then her mother-in-law and mac could do better.

    "Predictable"

    The story was predictable at best, but the narration was totally flat and made the whole thing worse. I had to fight to stay awake while listening.

    "Adjectives"

    I liked the story but was disconcerted with adjective 'lovely' being used often. It just didn't seem to fit most of the time. But did enjoy the characters.

    Story
    "Accidents will happen."
    Where does Maid for Love rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A good listen. Sweet story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Maid for Love?

    When Thomas said mama and dada.


    What does Holly Fielding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good narration.


    Any additional comments?

    Sweet love story. Different conflict with her personal issues. However it was touching and left a feel good feeling at the completion.

    Story
    "Falling asleep"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who is an insomniac


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Maid for Love?

    When mac punched the man in the face


    Would you be willing to try another one of Holly Fielding’s performances?

    Not really...she only has one tone. Never any excitement in her voice or anger. Sometimes you can't tell what character is talking.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Maid for Love?

    I would just cut the girl voicing the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Very hard to listen to this story. When she shuts off the recorder to rake a break you can tell. It's almost like the recorder broke. I thought my phone died or broke by the weird pauses in the story.
