Don't waste your time

The story was corny and contrived and the narration was TERRIBLE. I don't think the narrator took an English class her entire life. The number of words that were mispronounced was just astounding.

Good!

It’s a good story and a quick listen, the narration didn’t thrill me, but it was still good. A few character mix ups and distracting background noises, but overall a great quick listen.

sweet story

I enjoyed the story. It was sad but very tender. The southern voice reading it was perfect for the farm love story itself. There were a few minor mistakes (like mixing up character names in scenes but nothing major).

Nice short story

This is a nice short story. About the love and loss and secrets. The narration was had a few issues that are mentioned in other reviews. Good characters dealing with a strong subject.

Good Story

I enjoyed this story. It's sweet and has likable characters. These two women have to overcome struggles and pain in their past. I just felt like it was missing something to bring it from a good story to a great one.

The narration wasn't my favourite. There were some mistakes and background noises.

Good strong character

This is a good survivor book. Not a subject you find a lot of but unfortunately it happens. It’s good to see a fighter get her HEA. Likeable characters. Good narration.

Another great book!

I think when it comes to audible books the narrator really makes the difference in this slow country talking narrator was perfect. I love the voices she did for Jay and her country uncle I love the antics the characters get into and I cannot wait to read book to I hope Jay gets what she wants!

I loved this story..

Great story about two women who are trying to overcome their past to have a future together. I had a little issue with the strong southern accent of the narrator because the characters weren’t distinctive enough. Overall the book is worth getting.

Worth a listen

I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed the twists and turns in the book. I felt that there was some character inconsistency with Jai. I won't go into detail, but that is why I'm giving it 3 stars. I actually listened to the audiobook, and the narrator was perfect. Though to be honest, the way Jai behaved was a bit too much like a hillbilly, and the accent made it worse.

Sleeping on Couches

I couldn’t listen to this in it’s entirety between the over the top country accent that sounded absolutely fake and the narrators nasally (maybe sick) voice I couldn’t go more than halfway before I gave up.

Not my cup of tea

This book is meant to be a quick listen book but I found it difficult to get into, because I didn’t like the narration. With the narration there were a few character mix ups and very distracting background noises. The story wasn’t my cup of tea as I didn’t think there was much romance between the two characters.

A Very Good Independent Woman Story...

I thought "Sleeping On Couches," depict a good story for a woman who was looking to get back out on her own, especially after really volatile relationship.

I think Nicole was able to see the situation and express it very clearly for one to understand and move on from and even learn from. For her to be able to keep moving forward towards her new life.

The narration by Caroline Downs I thought was actually brilliant. She was able to capture all the different characters and give them their own distinguishing voices, each one came through clearly. I do recommend this book to others to listen to.
