the story was a beautiful story and well written.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator. The audio version needs a narrator with better tonality.

What did you like best about this story?

As usual, this story was consistent with the authors beautiful gift for writing. She needs to listen to her narrators as Joy Hooper should be off her list

What three words best describe Joy C. Hooper’s voice?

Horrible, squeaky, boring

Too long and blah

I couldn't wait until the end. I'm a fan of Alers, but this whole series has left a lot to be desired. The plot was predictable and boring. The narrator did little to empress me. I like the concept of the island but I'm left looking for more.

excellent book

the writer is excellent and has amazing stories. however listening to this book was the worst. the narrator was so dull and boring as a rock. She did not bring life to the characters they all sounded the same. Great books like what this author writes needs someone that could pull you into the story. This narrator failed miserable.

Horrible narrator!

Wasn't sure I could finish listening to the book. So many of the words were not pronounced correctly. I don't get that! And, she paused in the weirdest spots in sentences. The author uses "pregnant" too much in the book, too, and in the other books of the series!

Great story, but...

Would you consider the audio edition of Haven Creek to be better than the print version?

Didn't read the print version.

What other book might you compare Haven Creek to and why?

The other books in the Cavanaugh Island series. All are good. Love the connection between the characters in each of the novels.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Sometimes, the good guys win!

Any additional comments?

I loved the story and the plot - it's a typical romance novel.

I have listened to all four of the Cavanaugh Island novels that are recorded. The other three had the same (different) narrator. I did not enjoy this narrator at all. Her voice was very monotone, and was just a hair better than someone scratching their nails on a chalkboard. In addition, the way she read the text, it was difficult to tell when one sentence ended and another began, or one paragraph ended and another began...everything was like a run on sentence.

Personally, I would think twice before I purchased another audio book narrated by this person.

Haven Creek

I have read several of Rochelle Alers book and have started
listening to her Audio books. I started to Cavanaugh Island series and loved the first two, and then came Joy C. Hooper narration. Her voice was very slow paced,she fumbled over words, she mispronounced two words. I couldn't continue to listen but I liked the story I got it in book form I'll read for myself.
