Narrator is awful

I couldn't get past the narrator's voice to finish the first chapter much less the book.

Sweet Country Listen with a Villain or Two

When Jill's Grandma Pearl dies, she feels alone in the world . . . returning to Adams Grove from her fancy job in Savannah, she remembers the simple life of growing up in a small town and all the fun she had growing up. As Jill buries her Grandma, she begins to wonder about her new life in Savannah doing fund raising, going to galas, driving an expensive car, and living in a huge estate . . . with Bradley. Was that really who she was? As the details of Pearl's will are revealed, Jill is faced with choices she hadn't expected . . . but Pearl knew Jill so well . . . could her grandma be right? As each day goes by, the peace and joy of country life seeps down deep into Jill's bones again . . . and the people of Adams Grove, who have always loved her, come to her aide in ways she never expected. I love books like Sweet Tea and Secrets . . . they may not be particularly deep or complex, but they are GOOD . . . in many ways . . . and so refreshing. They restore your faith in mankind. They give you a glimpse into small town life. They show us that GOOD can prevail over evil. I thoroughly enjoyed this listen.

When TSTL is insufficent!!

I will make this review short and to the point. The narration is overly deadpan. A little emoting would be appreciated.

The male characters are rather sweet or not, as is necessary to the story/plot.

These stories have a Christian theme except when they don't. Very inconsistent.

The female leads are weak, lack a moral compass, and while justifying their actions as "confused" by their stress level DEMAND that the men behave to the highest standards at all time.

The mechanics of writing and plot development are above average but the female characterizations drag these stories into mediocrity. Very sad.

Just not my cup of tea.

It wasn't a bad book. It was just a little slow going for me. I dont want to say the heroine was portrayed as juvenile exactly, maybe naive is a better word.

My first book by this author and I'm impressed!

I'm not only impressed with the story, but I loved the narrator! She had the perfect accent for the story and a sweet southern voice!

Story strtd out ok..then became borderline SAPPY!

This storyline strtd out promising, but thn it seemed tht the author couldn't decide if she wanted the book to be a thriller or a cookbook or a sappy love story (without much substance to it) ...it turned out to be a lot of neither. Both lead male characters were very sappy and NOT well developed. If this book hadn't been free I would have asked for my money back!
The narrator was okay but not great with the 'exclaiming ' parts.
