I don't usually buy books with male narrator's

I don't think male narrator's do woman's voices as well as woman do men's voices but this narrator did a good job. the story was good and kept my interest. there wasn't any excitement but as a strictly romance novel it was a good book.

Aaaawwww.. this is the sweetest story. I loved it!

"Five stars?" you ask. Yes!
This was to me, a realistic romance. The characters weren't 'perfect, but were decent people who wanted to behave decently. I don't have family experience of PTSD or related difficulties, but it felt like the author treated the hero's experience with compassion and respect.

The love scenes were perfect. They were a nice break from the recent glut of romance novels that inject sex scenes more concerned with being graphic and descriptive than romantic. Ms. Longley approaches these interactions with respect for both characters. Nobody was "dominant" or controlling and the female character wasn't a clueless little cluck waiting to be "mastered*. They were equal partners experiencing the joy of being together. Sweet is the word that comes to mind; but I don't mean that it was fluffy or without substance. This was sweet in the best sense

This book was shorter than I normally choose. But it was just right for this story. It occurs to me that many romance novels I've read lately would be improved by some trimming.

The narrator was very good. Love the Oklahoma drawl.

I highly recommend this book and look forward to future installments of this series.

Characters you care about! Good listen!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Difference a Day Makes to be better than the print version?

I did not read the print version

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Difference a Day Makes?

When Ryan visits the sight of Theresa's accident and says his goodbye to her.

What about Nick Podehl’s performance did you like?

He is does a great job with the male voices and tells the story well. Keeps the listener interested. He has a tendency however to make the women sound like they are talking in baby talk a little bit. I have noticed this in other books as well.

Any additional comments?

This book is far and away much better than book 1 in this series. I very much liked both lead characters. I still find Ted to be a pain and that would be fine if it helped the story line in any way but it does not. I also feel at times that some of the characters are over reacting to things. If they were on stage they would be over acting. I don't think this is the fault of the narrator either it is how it's written. Never the less. This book 2 is a huge improvement. I look forward to book 3.

Ok for #2

This was a very nice second book to this series. I really enjoyed the story. The narration was slightly better on the first book but this performance was ok. My download had a defect in the beginning… and I will try to download it again but if I get the same issue I will return it due to the skipping track. Also, there was a ghost element that was just unnecessary in my opinion. Other than that, would I recommend this book? Yes.

I like the development of the main characters; a point of view I know nothing about!
