    "Awful Narrator"

    I love All things Nora Roberts and enjoyed the story. BUT the narrator made the heroine sound like an old vampire movie! Her Russian accent was awful, just not realistic at all.

    "Boring"

    Very disappointing. Just boring. Not typical Nora Roberts quality. Simple romance but no plot to speak of.

    Story
    "It's Nora Roberts"

    I enjoyed the book... I almost gave it a four star but really not one of her best. Basic storyline with a few twists but really basic stuff.

    It did take me awhile to get passed the narrators attempt at a Russian accent but it grew on me.

    If your looking for a quick no brainer listen, this will work for you.

    "Uncomplicated Plot"

    The storyline was interesting but lengthy for a story that was not very complicated. Overall, it was easy on the ears.

    "Gentle love story"

    A good story and much more emotional than I was expecting, having already listened to the 3rd book of the series.
    The story broached some tender topics very sensitively, a real, feel good, easy listening book.
    Beautifully narrated definitely 6☆ stars if I could give it for her performance
