I don't know which was worse, the book or the narrator. I hung on until the end of Sail Away hoping somehow that it might get better. It did not. If it was possible, what made it worse - actually truly dreadful - was the narrator. I have not heard her before - thank god. The book might have rated a 2 or even a 3 with a really good narrator. The heroine of the story was a spoiled brat, the hero shallow. I had absolutely no empathy for any of the characters and nor I doubt would anyone else, as they had no traits that were particularly likeable. In the past I have always enjoyed Lisa Jackson, but this must have been resurrected from her rubbish bin and won't do her reputation for writing best sellers much good. I'll try before I buy next time.

This romance was a severe dissapointment, I could not make a connection with either the male or female lead, The female lead is far to weak-willed to be interesting, and the male lead is an idiot. As a result the book just did not work. This is one of the few books that I was simply unable to finish. I hope that Ms. Jackson's mysteries are a lot better, as most reviewers seem to feel. But for a romance writer there are many better choices. Elizabeth Lowell, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and Susan Mallery all come immediately to mind, along with a whole galaxy of both Historical and Regency writers.
