Would you try another book from Ruth Cardello and/or Robin Rowan?
I have other Ruth Cardello books and have enjoyed them. This is too heavy on the drama (and although some of the subject matter is intense) , the fact that the family is so focused on a tragedy that many people deal with that they become this dysfunctional is a little overwhelming.
What could Ruth Cardello have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
The way the story is written, I don't know that it could have be any better or worse.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robin Rowan?
I'm not sure, but I don't think I can take this narrator. Unless you are fond of someone talking like an overly breathy Marilyn Monroe, she's not for you.
Was Stolen Kisses worth the listening time?
No. In fact, the narration is so annoying, I'm returning it for my credit. I think for this series , I'll stick to the ebooks.
Any additional comments?
I found that not only was the narration bad, the story didn't have any real depth. Family members had some bad things happen, but really? To have someone have to be so coddled to for fear that her fragile emotions would break is too much. For gosh sakes, get some counceling
Everyone has had something bad happen to them, but you go on.

Like the first book in this series, the story is good, characters well developed. I just can't take the high pitched, monotone voices of the female characters. Most female narrators do just an ok job with male characters. Ms Rowan is great with male characters. I just can't listen to another minute of Mini Mouse when I'm trying to believe in a strong female lead.
