My heart ached for Kate ~ her struggles,being betrayed, and her love.

Excellent Series

Would you listen to Almost Perfect again? Why?

Yes I will! Excellent story.

What did you like best about this story?

The interaction of three friends - the past and the present. How so much can change. How finding love can be so hard and yet so rewarding.

What does Jane Cramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The expressions and meaning in her words. She does an excellent job narrating. When I was small I loved being read to - I still love it.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me want to read the whole series! Plus read every book Julie has written!

Any additional comments?

Almost Perfect was the first book I read written by Julie Ortolon. I am hooked. I love how she writes and how she puts so much meaning into her characters. I listened to the Perfect Trilogy series - read the Texas Heat Series and now I am listening to the Pearl Island Series. I am telling everyone about her and how great her books are.

Excellent

What did you love best about Falling for You?

The emotions and feelings of the characters. Julie does an excellent job of making the characters real. People are complicated and it is so true how we see and feel differently about things that happen. This books was so real life to me - maybe because Chance and my hubby are very much alike. They have to think and then rethink about everything. I also liked how what we think is expected is not always what is best. Very good book!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Chance - he reminds me so much of my husband. The way he processes thoughts and his actions.

Which scene was your favorite?

There were so many - I think the boat scene when Chance visited the boat with friends.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I really liked the book - I love listening to stories. Being read to is one of my favorite activities.

Any additional comments?

It was a great book for me - I love how Julie writes...I am on a mission to read/listen to all of her books. I have listened to the Perfect Trilogy and read the Texas Heat Series. This is the 1st in the Pearl Island series....not off to listen to Book 2 in the series Lead Me On. I really like buying the books with the Whispersync - letting me listen and read.Eva did an excellent job narrating the book. Her voice is very easy to listen too.

I loved The Publicist

What made the experience of listening to The Publicist the most enjoyable?

I loved the book ~ I was immediately drawn into the book. The Publicist took me into the life of Kate, MacDermott, Allan, and Nick. I understood why they reacted the way they did. Christina George was excellent at expressing the emotions of each person addressing their wants, needs and desires. Understanding the publishing business was very interesting and at times extremely stressful for all involved.

What other book might you compare The Publicist to and why?

I really can not compare The Publicist to any other book I have read.

Have you listened to any of Lisa Cordileone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first experience listening to Lisa. She was a very good story teller. Her voice was easy to understand. I will be checking into other books she has narrated.

Any additional comments?

I listened to The Publicist when I was driving. The minute I got into my Jeep to and from work I turned on the Publicist. I found myself looking forward to the ride to find out what was going on with Kate.
