I struggled to finish this book, and it had nothing to do with the story... The narration was absolutely horrid. Not only was the narrator's nasaly voice hard to bare, she often used a "valley-girl" like inflection which brought nothing to the story and was just plain annoying. She had almost no grasp on the tone the characters were using.
The book itself was decent and at times slighty poetic. I wasn't a fan of the way the author eluded to what would happen next, but characters were likable. I probably would have enjoyed it more had I read it instead of listening.

I want to start by saying that I really wanted to love this book. Everyone I know that has read it has adored it, that leaves me to believe the issue is with me. This is totally my opinion and please don't anyone hate me.
Kandi is a very talented and the book was very well written. Her character development was off the charts. I have a hard time remembering character names when there gets to be too many but Kandi made every single character memorable and I had such a great connection to all the characters.
The reason why I am not rating this 5 stars is because I found the main characters completely immature and unrealistic. They ruined way too many lives, over and over, including their own and I just don't think anyone has the motivation to do that to themselves for over a decade. I was left frustrated, irritated and annoyed.
That being said, I listened to the book straight through, I couldn't stop just wondering how this madness would end. I never once considered not finishing it.
Lauren Sweet is not the narrator for me. When she is just telling the story, I think she's great. Easy voice to listen to and her tone is great. Then the narratives come in and her voice gets extremely whiny and high pitched and I just really don't care for it.

This is the best read I have had in awhile. Loved the layers of writing technique, angst and passion of characters and great narration.
Was A Love Letter to Whiskey worth the listening time?
This is not the usual story I go for. I'm more into paranormal romances, but the reviews on this were all good thought I'd at least try a taste. For the first few chapters I was umming & ahhing about continuing, but as neared the middle I was enjoying the taste of whiskey & was ready for the next shot. Although most of the problems B brought on herself & was getting frustrated with her & wished she would just get out of her own way, but when your young & scared you always make silly mistakes. The story kept me hooked as I waited for what was the next obstacle that would keep them apart & honestly got teary when got to the end of the bottle.
Any additional comments?
I think Lauren Sweet was the perfect narrator for this story. A beautiful smooth voice to help you drink in the story.
