Underwhelmed

I don't normally read books with cheating, especially with spouses, but this book was written such that the focus was on the couple repairing their relationship and genuinely in love. That was all good but my problem was I never connected with the characters. They fell flat and I was underwhelmed by them, which meant that in the end I really didn't care what happened. The narrator did a nice job but even listening to it couldn't bring it to life anymore. I've heard great things about this author but I won't be reading anymore of this series.

Very Nice Story

4 stars for the book, 2.5 for narration
This was actually a really good book. I thought it was an interesting spin on the topic. I felt the writing of the characters really conveyed their feelings realistically regardless if you agreed or felt you would react a different way. It wasn't overly emotional, but yet it really dealt with an issue and the emotions people can relate to in a contemplative way.

The narration, however, fell somewhat short of this. It wasn't bad. I've heard bad. So, that's what was hard for me. I just felt that the hills and valleys that the author wrote beautifully were not reflected in the narration. The narrator had good inflection, but not the depths. So, real hurt and pain didn't "feel" real. Yet, I think she had a lot of potential. It was almost there, but not which kept me from "feeling" the characters. The feeling in the writing came through though.

I am definitely looking forward to more from this author.

I received this copy as an ARC for an honest review.
