Good story, but...

The story was good, but the reader almost killed it for me. There is a lack of emotion in the reading although the characters were clearing defined in voice, something was missing. I wonder if the reader is used to doing non-romanace stories because his voice is great, but not for a romance. As far as the story, Nora Roberts does it again. I think I'll purchase the book and read if for myself.

A Trilogy to be Included in the Best Libraries

If you have read any of my past book reviews, you will know that I don’t believe in spoiler alerts. And following that sentiment let me tell you that Book 1 is good. I mean it is Nora Roberts…right? However, for some reason, I didn’t love the narration. The Irish accent was, as far as this South Texas Girl would think…spot on. The problem for me, I believe was the way the narrator seemed to rush through the female dialogue, making it seem somehow, cut off and thus, her withholding expression. In some ways, it was difficult, in Book 1, for me to connect with the family, Concannon. Relatable characters are what will invest a reader into the story. Don’t you agree? In fact, I am not sure that I would have continued the trilogy, had I not already owned the next two books. What a treasure I found, though.
It was in Book 2, BORN IN ICE, and narrated by the same gentlemen I might add, that I really was able to fall in love with this family. Oh, and fall in love, I did. What an amazing surprise it was for me too; enough, that is, to want to share my experience with you. I am not sure if I adapted to the narrator’s tempo, or if he slowed his pace and dynamics, but I loved him too.
I only just completed Book 2, and between you and me, I didn’t want it to end…and so it doesn’t…on to book 3 I go!
Credit Worthy – YES!
