Publisher's Summary

Just in time for the holidays: author Linda Howard's beloved Mackenzies. Meet Maris Mackenzie - and the sexy stranger she woke up to find in her bed! Unfortunately, she had no memory of Alex MacNeil, the previous day… or the prize thoroughbred she'd apparently stolen.

CUTE!

Cute and easy listening. It would be a good book to listen to while commuting--not too distracting. Likable characters, especially the little girl that appears near the end of the book. Linda Howard describes her so well it's as if you can literally see her.... and her little antics makes you smile.

Well narrated by Dennis Boutsikaris .

Short Book

It was great to revisit the Mackenzies again. The book was short and I felt it could have been more developed. I enjoyed the book probably because I love the Mackenzies. I really would like the author to put Chance's book on tape. I have read both books before and enjoyed hearing them read. It was good Dennis Boutsikaris read this one as he did Mackenzie's Pleasure so it was the same voice.

It was good to have all the family in the book but only at the end. Others may not enjoy the book as much unless they know the history of this family. It would have been nice to have had some updates as to where the family was at this point.

I did not use a credit for this book because the cost was much cheaper than a credit cost. I can't complain it was money well spent. If you are looking for a quick listen - fun, short and a no-brainer this is the book for you.

Not what I expected...

I bought this audiobook because I had read all the other books in this series and liked them. This story didn't measure up to the other stories, it was just okay. The story centers around the only MacKenzie daughter Maris and the man she falls for. Narration was well performed.

More of Mackenzie.

Cute little story, romance was way fast, but to be expected in a short story. Defiantly could have made this into a full size story with some mystery added. Although Dennis Boutsikaris did a good job reading the book, he sounds older and maybe accountant type. Not the manly man, portrayed in the story, and it was mostly from a woman’s point of view. There is a lot of revisiting of the Mackenzie family at the end.

Mackenzies Magic

This book is outstanding and equal to all the other Mackenzie book's. Linda Howard has out done herself with this Mackenzie series. The only thing wrong with this book is it isn't long enough.

Poor recording

The story is as delightful as ever, but the quality of the recording leaves something to be desired. The volume fluctuates from one extreme to another.

ok

Would you try another book from Linda Howard and/or Dennis Boutsikaris?

yes Linda Howard is on my top list of fav authors.

Would you be willing to try another book from Linda Howard? Why or why not?

absolutely. already have. love her suspense combined with love story books.

What aspect of Dennis Boutsikaris’s performance would you have changed?

nothing

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

i think it would be a great movie. its not about special effects its about a realistic story. the only problem with making books into movies is that they leave things out or they add things that the ppl think would make the story more marketable.

Any additional comments?

the only problem i had with this book and some of her earlier stories is that they are too short.

Sweet series!

I love this family. They are sweet and funny and portray the women as strong and independent. I'm just sorry Linda Howard didn't write a book about the other two brothers, Joshua and Michael.

More a novella

I would probably have given it another star if it had been longer. I haven't listened to any of the other books in this series so I probably didn't enjoy it as much as someone who is familiar with the Mackenzie family, but the rest of the family doesn't really come in until the end. It's mostly Maris's story. There's a very fast romance, a little bit of mystery on why she stole the horse. It was a pretty fast listen and would have been more enjoyable if it had been longer.

It had a male narrator, which is nice for a change in a romance story, but most men aren't good with female voices, but he didn't do too bad.
