Summary

Determined to reevaluate her life, Jude Murray flees America to take refuge in Faerie Hill Cottage, where she immerses herself in the study of Irish Folklore and discovers hope for the future in the magic of the past. Finally back home in Ireland after years of traveling, Aidan Gallagher possesses an uncommon understanding of his country's haunting myths. Although he's devoted to managing the family pub, a hint of wildness still glints in his stormy eyes. In Jude, he sees a woman who can both soothe his heart and stir his blood. And he begins to share the legends of the land with her, while they create a passionate history of their own.

This narrator is awful

This is a typical Nora Roberts novel. Exactly what you'd expect. Only one irritating thing; Irish people don't speak Gaelic, we speak Irish.
The really annoying bit was the narration. The "Irish" accents were horrendous. I have never heard an Irish person that sounded anything like this. It was actually painful.
Also, she manages to mispronounce every single Irish word.
I won't be getting the next two instalments because I can't stand this woman's narration.

Great Book - Bad Narrator

This book is a beautiful, well-written and colorful story with such dynamic descriptions of the Irish countryside that you truly feel like you're there. Unfortunately, the narrator is not quite as appealing. The first few hours of this book are almost painful to listen to, but she does improve and the other two books in the trilogy are much better. Hang in there, and it's worth it!

Good story, struggling reader.

Sometimes a good reader can take a lousy story and make it fun but unfortunately this was not the case for Jewels. The reader sound very stilted and uncomfortable with her story telling. She was hesitant and never developed a cadence or rhythm with the characters or the story. Many times a reader starts slow and then relaxes and begins to actually make the story a pleasure. This did not happen either and the reader for Jewels maintained the hesitancy and awkward pausing throughout the story. I managed to make it through but not without perseverance and patience. I would recommend going to a used book store and reading this one if you like a Nora Roberts romance.
