Well read and deeply satisfying

Would you consider the audio edition of To Win Her Heart to be better than the print version?

Yes, thanks to the remarkably well read audible book, but the book is also excellent.


What did you like best about this story?

The romance being so unexpected for both Levi and Eden, neither expect to find love. Eden has been disappointed in love in the past and Levi is more focused on hiding his speech impediment and criminal record than finding romance. Also, Levi's gorgeous.


What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

She makes a great job of all the voices even Levi's.


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

You'll fall in love...


Any additional comments?

It's a lovely story, not just a romance but a heart warming tale of redemption.

Took a while to get started but otherwise great

This book took a while to get started but I ended up loving it! I got so involved with the characters' lives and trials and tribulations and was grinning my head off by the end of the story. If it hadn't been so slow for the story to get going and for the characters to start to overcome their struggles I'd say this book was perfect, but since I did have a few qualms with it I'll give it 4.5 stars.

A note on the narrator: Excellent! The best narrator I've ever had in an audiobook. She gave all of the characters brilliant Southern accents that made the Texas setting truly come alive. Only a couple of the minor characters seemed to have voices that overlapped so overall it was easy to distinguish between who was speaking. The only downside to her reading of the book was that the Scottish character sounded Irish for the entire book, except for one scene where he's injured and not talking properly! But the narrator is American so I'll let her off with the Scottish/Irish accent confusion. If you enjoy Karen Witemyer's novels and are looking to get into audiobooks, definitely try this one. I can't recommend it enough.
