Good story. Wooden performance.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Usually, I am quickly involved in the tale Susan Mallery spins. However, with this particular audiobook it took me a while, The narrator was juvenile in her performance of this book and that detracted from my enjoyment. One of the few times I wish I had read the book instead of listened to it. Too bad. I hope the narrator for the next book in the series is better.

Narrator Ruins It

What disappointed you about Barefoot Season?

I couldn't get into the book due the the poor quality narration. I think I could have done a better job! Guess I've gotten spoiled by Therese Plummer and Tanya Eby! I'm going to download the Kindle version.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I may try the second on in this series if I recognize the narrator and know I can trust her.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Monotone, no real differentiation between the female characters. Sounds bland and beige.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I couldn't finish it, so can't answer. Only made it a few chapters in before I threw in the towel.

Nice Story but horrible narration.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator for this book had a terrible sing song voice. It was hard to finish the story listening to the narration. She was high pitched and even the descriptive passages were done in a sing song voice.

What did you like best about this story?

The story was good with the background of the island and inn.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

It was difficult to finish the book listening to her sing song voice. I would have given it a lower rating if there was one available.

Any additional comments?

I will definitely watch closely and listen to samples before selecting any other books and will certainly never get another by her,

It was O.K

This was my first book for Susan Mallery. It was an OK book. Sonething simple and sweet to pass time with. No element of excitement. Was a bit bland but not entirely boring. The community that the author created and their dynamics were the strength points of the book. I will get the next books in the series because of this.
The narration needs improvement BIG TIME !

Excited for new Mallery book...but just ok.

I have enjoyed many of her books, this was just a little flat. Thought it would be extra fun having 2 love stories going on...but there just was not that much there to grab you...

not time well spent. I would like to read the book.

I have all of Susan's books. I like them.

What didn’t you like about Sarah Grace’s performance?

I'm not sure if it was her voice or her reading of the story
