the most non alpha, alpha character I've ever cone across. Author t should not have called her that, made a big production about it and should have just left it to our imagination would have been happy to call her diva princess in my head and left it at that. the food issue again another big production which soon became irritating.
the rest of the characters were vapid to say the least. I would read a book about Lewis though he was about the only character that piqued my interest. the narrator didn't do much for the book I'm sorry to say...would not recommend.

I felt like I was a child again travelling through the mysteries found in a good book. my kids were irritated by my chuckles and frustrated when I told them to go read the book if they were so interested. can't wait to download the next book.

I downloaded these books a while back read one and abandoned them then when I read the second one I remembered why I had abandoned them. the storyline is not bad. the setting of it is where the problem lies. The female character I found irritating her backwards and forwards just did my head in. the male character well I couldn't make up my mind about him - sometimes he was alright other times I just didn't quite get what I needed from him. the whole ending to the saga was anti-climatic and again left me feeling is that It? the character that read him was flat with no change in intonation for different characters, the female narrater would have been better to read the whole book. Overall I felt dissatisfied by the whole thing.
The story was engaging but the narrator had a poor male voices which made the whole thing irritating to hear ; Lang was a sadist and his brutality often unfounded making it difficult to keep wanting to know what would happen next. I’m used to better from S. Sandlin thought I’d try something different by her, can’t say it was as good as the other series
It was a good book, not as outstanding as the Kathleen Turner series nice to see old friends. Would have liked dual POV throughout so to randomly introduce it at the end of this book three me a bit. That ending makes me anticipate book three - I'm not a fan of this love triangle thing the author likes it makes me not want to invest in any of the characters but that's just a personal preference. Would definitely recommend.
I guess as a foreign reader my only bed bug is the disrespect the character/author have for other countries and what they stand for but I guess freedom of speech and all that
I really enjoyed listening to this book. Although there were a few niggles when the author let China do some silly things or couldn't connect the dots which were seemingly obvious overall it was hilarious and China's personality was adorable and had me in chuckles quite a bit whilst driving or cooking! Roll on book 2!
Perfect for Carrie
This was the perfect story for Carrie, Terrie managed to give her her story that did justice to all the pain and suffering she'd had in the past. I was always a bit skeptic all about the relationship with Lorelei and Spencer but this brings it full circle. Loved it! Just a slight annoyance at the deliberate miscommunication issues but I must say they are least prominent in this book compared to the rest of the series
Took a little while to pick up but built nicely and steadily. It wasn't nail biting edge of you seat gripping stuff but was still engaging and kept me hooked. Was a. It disappointed that some things weren't quite resolved or discussed but I guess it's the author's way of building up to next book. I'm in no hurry to grab it but will eventually get to it. Give it a go

My kitchen has never been so clean just so I had moments to myself to listen to this wonderful book, gripping story line and amazing performance can't wait for next book in the series, roll on September
Only slight dissatisfaction was that the poor young man Nick was not exonerated inform of the town after his life had been completed destroyed - my niggle nothing against the author's ending

What a Gem of a book!
This book was flawless and faultless. So pure and so giving...ahhh, I can't help the sigh. I've been reading / listening to so many books that have been leaving me a bit frustrated because they are completely ridiculous over the top or just underwhelming. Now this one...a story after my own heart, lots of laughter and tears in equAl measure, my husband had to check on me a few times because of sniffling and my kids wanted in on the joke when I was chuckling - what more can one want in a book? Well done SE Hall, like I said, faultless. Henley and Keaton! What a duo and Gaitlin --didn't see that coming! Had me in tears.
The narrator just brought it to life even more. What a performance, she definitely made the book go to another level, I will certainly be stalking the books she's narrated just for the experience she gives, whether she doing a male, female or child's impersonation - ah, divine! This is one pleased customer and I don't give my good reviews lightly!!!
