Didnt like the narration. An annoying American putting on awful Scottish accents made it painful to listen to at points. I enjoyed the story though. I would rather have read it than listen to the narration.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
It's fine, worth listening to if you understand the Outlander fandom. However I felt the main character spent too long zinging about in America before getting to Scotland. The number of references to the main character not having enough money got tiresome. Fair enough to run out half way through and after being robbed but she is bleeting about cash the whole way thru'.
Would you be willing to try another book from KC Dyer? Why or why not?
I guard my credits jealously so no, but I would READ another. However, I stuck with it,which is a compliment given the woeful narration.
How could the performance have been better?
Where do I begin.....The narrator's American accent is fine. The British accents are just a jumbled mess, with Northern English errupting in the middle of Scottish speech. There are sounds I have never heard British people emit. I had to to just tune it out and listen to the story. (I am Scottish living in England so I do know how it should have sounded)
If this book were a film would you go see it?
Possibly, as films set in Scotland tend to have a quirky charm.

Entertaining romantic adventure for an Outlander fan, but you don’t have to be. Heroine is charmingly flawed, full of insecurities but full of spirit. Some surprise twists. As cute as this is in a way, this could happen to anyone, and that makes it all the more charming.
The narrator really hit the mark on being sassy and vulnerable at the same time, and got the quirky feel of the writing. Having been to Scotland, I can say that the accents have just the right mix of authenticity and being able to understand them. Great mix of voices and characters.

A cute romantic caper in the highlands, funky characters that are full of surprises, and a pretty good story. I liked Emma a lot and found myself relating to her more than I expected, for such a light hearted romp. It’s not my usual kind of thing, but I’m glad I gave it a listen. Particularly for the narrator Romy Nordlinger, who really shines in this one. You can tell she’s having fun with the ironic romantic ups and downs, and a host of diverse characters. She did a great job.
