Good stories, but...

In Linda Lael Miller's story, the narrator was male & it was mainly written from a female perspective. It took a while to get used to it. The narrator in Lindsey McKenna's story needs to get better at doing men's' voices. Her voice for Colt (who is suppose to have a deep gravelly voice) sounded more like she had a frog with laryngitis in her throat. It was difficult to ignore and just her the words. Both were good stories. I would listen to both narrators again but the choice of the first & the abilities of the second might give me pause as to what type of material I was listening to read by them.

Disappointed

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

There seem to be plenty of people who do like it, but I didn't care for this one.

What was most disappointing about Linda Lael Miller and Lindsay McKenna ’s story?

Holly was so wishywashy, I just wanted to shake her. To allow anyone to treat her like that repeatedly and keep going back for more shows a complete lack of selfesteem. I had no real liking for either Holly or David.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narration was fine. I couldn't get behind the story and just wanted it to end.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It wasn't longer.

Liked the stories

What did you love best about A Proposal for Christmas?

Both of the stories were sweet, and I enjoyed the stories, but I would have liked the second one better if narrated by someone else.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jack Garrett and Gabra Zackman ’s performances?

I enjoyed the Jack Garrett performance, but I do not like Gabra Zackman's.

Two stories

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not really, there are better books. I was disappointed that this is actually 2 different stories. Guess I need to pay attention to reviews before I purchase.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure, but I am always in search for the next book.

Could you see A Proposal for Christmas being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No!
