Publisher's Summary

Falling stars are supposed to be a lucky sign, but not for Austen. Her new job as a secretary in an international games company isn't off to a good start. Her first assignment - decorating the Christmas tree in the lobby - results in a trip to the ER after Dee, the company's second-in-command, gets hit by the star-shaped tree topper. Dee blames her instant attraction to Austen on her head wound, not the magic of the falling star. She's determined not to act on it, especially since Austen has no idea that Dee is practically her boss.

I loved this story, a great way to escape

Would you listen to Under a Falling Star again? Why?

Yes, because I have read this book 3 times and it is a fun romance to escape into. I love reading this author's books.

What did you like best about this story?

The romance that unfolds and how they get to it, which is what this book is about. The time it takes to take charge of oneself and to have the courage to say no, which was the ending. Plus the corporate nonsense and rumors made it comical.

Which character – as performed by Shawn Marie Bryan – was your favorite?

Probably Austin and Tim. I will say I did not like the authors voice for Dee, but that is just my feelings. The narrator knows how to put emotion into place. This is not my first time listening to this narrator.

Who was the most memorable character of Under a Falling Star and why?

Dee and Austin, but Dee father and Uncle, have short but very decisive roles you can't forget. They are the basis for how Dee is portrayed prior to Austin's introduction into the book and the character and personality she falls back into at various points throughout the story.

Any additional comments?

I loved the book, and have read it at least 3 times in the past. I was looking forward to any audible from Jae. This was a great story to do as an audible book. The reader’s emotions, tempo, enthusiasm and vocal quality was great for this story. Love the various sound affects too, great job. My only criticism is I thought the narrator’s voice was too old sounding for Dee’s character. I know Dee’s role comes off as a matron type person given her story’s personality. But she sounded like she was in her 60’s and too mature for what I envisioned her voice to be. I got use to her voice after an hour. But it was not the voice I expected. I have listened to this narrator in the past and she does a great job, I just thought it was not quite the right role for her. I would still recommend the audible version, because it is a great story to tell and listen too. I read all books first before buying the audible and still recommend readers who are able to read the print version to that first where possible. I would love to see Jae Back to Oregon series done in audible.
