    "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.

    Story
    "Meh!"

    So when a narrator can't do a male voice it can make or break the story. Christina Traisters female voices were just ok in this book but the male lead sounded slow and dim witted. That, my friends can ruin a story in a hurry. This story itself was slow and it was hard at times to keep my attention. Sorry, but I'd skip this one. Use your credit on any Susan Elizabeth Phillips "Chicago Stars" series book and you'll understand what I'm saying about GREAT narration making a book come to life!

    "Surprisingly good."

    Enjoyed the tale of Natasha. It could have been anyone's life having come from Europe earlier and seen all the changes as they grew up here.

    Story
    "worst book ever"

    I love Nora Roberts and many other similar authors. I have always finished a book I started, but this one was painful. Part of it was how the male voice was portrayed. I love Christina Traitors voice and accents, but the deep male voice sounded scary or like a pothead. the story itself was also bad. The romance and draw between the main characters sounds more like sexual assault. It turns my stomach how he grabs her and holds her and attacks her with unwanted kisses. the gurl character even slaps him. As the man divulges his want her for, he sounds like a stalker. Seriously, worse story ever.

    not before, but she is good at giving the characters an accent

    When he started to compose music again


    Any additional comments?

    "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
