A Little Predictable

This is not the best book I've ever read, and it's far from the best book by Lynn Austin. However, it was just what I needed right now. Lynn Austin always does a good job.

Excellent all round

Another brilliant work by Lynn Austin. Second time listening to this book. What a wonderful plot with delicious web of hilarious speeches! I love how Kate Forbes reads; she really brings the characters to life by mimicking their antics.

Easy Listen. Nice Story.

What about Kate Forbes’s performance did you like?

Loved the different voices. She was a little slow but it was nice in that the story wasn't rushed and I didn't feel like I was being hurried in my mental vision of what was going on.

Any additional comments?

Wanting more. I wanted to know more on different plots and what happened. Did the book get published. Did the happily ever after happen. Did the town get a revival. So many questions!

Lovely

This book was wonderful. I love the way that the author was the story. Her word choice and lyrical almost fairytale inclusions of hints about what would happen with the story amazing. I was intrigued we cannot wait to hear what would happen next. The characters were lifelike. The author brought the characters to life as well. Her voices and emotion made it enjoyable to listen to.
