Publisher's Summary

Lucy Scarborough is 17 when she discovers that the women of her family have been cursed through the generations, forced to attempt three seemingly impossible tasks or to fall into madness upon their child's birth. How can Lucy succeed when all of her ancestors have tried and failed? Inspired by the ballad "Scarborough Fair," this spellbinding novel combines suspense, fantasy, and romance for an intense and masterfully original tale.

    "Amazing!!"

    When my mom first told me to listen to this book i thouht, this is going to be another boring adult book. So i postponed reading it until i had read everything else. That turned out to be a huge mistake, because after reading this book i went ammidiatly to audible to find out if she had written anythin else.


    This book contains everything you could want in a book, mystery, romance, action, suspense, and family. It is written so well you feel connected to Lucy and her feelings in a way you dont with other books. And as for the reader i think she was just perfect. She had to read for a boy as well and she did an amazing job. I hope she read more books so i can buy them as well.

    Story
    "Give it a chance"
    What disappointed you about Impossible?

    I don't believe the story was a bad story it just was not my genre or the way that I like a love story to play out it was definitely not for me.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    After I read this I definitely went back to my conference zone of happy ever after love story with those hot steamy scenes. It was definitely a from start to finish just about love.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I always try to find a bright side of things and I guess I would say it would be where she was determined to not have history follow her.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Impossible?

    I always try to find a bright side of things and I guess I would say it would be where she was determined to not have history follow her. I would say maybe a little more explaining or backstory and more and maybe would've been a little bit more understanding but if I found myself confused re-reading a lot taking notes and I wasn't alone with the same thoughts


    Any additional comments?

    I will give this author another shake it just may have been the book was not my genre or my type of romance novel but we'll see what the next book :)

    Story
    "Beautiful, modern fairy tale"

    I relished listening to his tale from start to finish. For me, there was the perfect balance of conflict, but it wasn't too stressful a listen. The story arc was relatively straightforward, but there wasn't a sense of plodding or page filler. The story flowed well. Even though the conclusion could be guessed pretty easily, it was still a bit of a nail biter till the plot-climax. As a reader/listener, I felt invested in the characters, and that they were real and three-dimensional. Definitely getting the sequel.
