Not My Cup of Tea
Valerie? Definitely. I've listened to many of her audiobooks, although she didn't do the greatest job in this story. ALTHOUGH, she did warn me in advance that this was one of her first narrations. E. B. Walters? I'm not sure. This was the first story I've read/listened to by her and I wasn't a fan of this one.
There was nothing new. It was just one of your typical, boring romances.
Again, let me state that Valerie Gilbert warned me in advance that this story might have been one of the first books she’s narrated. With that in mind, there were issues with the narration, mainly there was this sound of cars driving by that could be heard in the background. While this narration provided some sound effects, the cars wasn’t one because it was an almost constant background noise, no matter if the characters were in a building or outside.
I did come to realize that there were several words that Valerie mispronounced such as: capri pants, she pronounced it as ‘cap-pree’ pant ... I know there were others but I didn’t take note of them.
There were obvious editing issues with this story as well. Unless Valerie misread ‘Aaron’ but ‘Baron’ in some situations then the editor or someone didn’t do a good editing job. The first mention of ‘Aaron’ was after Cara gave her resignation and was heading out to lunch, she looked back and up towards ‘Barons’ office, but ‘Aaron’ was used. The other time was when Baron’s brother asked him if Cara was still with him after he had left Cara’s sisters house, again, ‘Aaron’ had been used.
My only question about the story: After Cara turns in her resignation why did she go to work the next day with her hair down, nicer outfit, and makeup? (Considering she didn’t go to work like that normally).

Dreams and goals
Kara works for an art gallery and is bound and determined to open up her own business refinishing artwork and framing the masterpieces that come through her door. However the book starts out with her turning in her resignation to Barron her current boss. naturally he does not want to see her go and plots this wonderful collection they have to go look at together and of course is out of state. Needless to say the two finally admit that they love each other and let their relationship blossom into something else. There's a few twists and turns in the plot line where their past comes back to possibly haunt them. highly entertaining read I think the narrator did an amazing job pulling you into the story and keeping you entertained throughout the entire book. the narrator has this great ability to pull you into a trance that only ends when the book is over. Fantastic job cannot wait to finish the series
