"Lovely stories, great narrator."
This is a lovely listen - nice stories and a wonderful narrator. She even sang the Gaelic Christmas carol! And this book is so cheap right now. Perfect for the run up to Christmas. Go for it!
Enjoyable stories by well-known authors. A lot of content in one volume.
This was a wonderful anthology of heartwarming Christmas stories tied together by the premise of Lady Holly's Last Chance Christmas Ball. I loved each and every story and was so sorry to reach the end. All of the authors are fabulous writers.
Claxton did a good job narrating. I love her accent, and her voice is very soothing. She did both the female and male characters' voices very well. I will look for other books she's narrated.
"Excellent and Enjoyable!"
In the top 25. Excellent narration by Elaine Claxton and the short stories that are woven together around a Christmas Ball. I enjoyed all but one of the short stories. I like how each author connected their story line from the previous story. Made for a seamless listen. Really a pleasant Christmas story. No explicit sex scenes, which was really nice.
Loved every story! Made my Christmas reading special. Highly recommend to anyone looking for Christmas romance.
"The Last Chance Ball"
Beautifully narrated by Elaine Claxton, this anthology is filled with several different novellas all built around Miss Holly's "last chance ball". Each story highlighted characters who met and fell in love with someone else invited to the ball. I enjoyed listening to the audio version of this book since the narration was so splendid and these are some of my favorite authors. It was a wonderful Christmas diversion when I took breaks from all the hustle and bustle of this time of year.
"Such a fun Christmas read of mini stories that always together in the end"
Such a fun Christmas read of mini stories that all weave together. Loved it! Enjoy
This would make a great Christmas present. I had so much fun listening and sighing over all the happy endings.
This book was a delightful change from the single story novel. I enjoyed reading about each character's preparation for attending the party. It was similar to reading multiple stories.
"The dullest *adventure* ever"
I think not
Don't know Katherine Kellgren, maybe; someone who would infuse some liveliness into the narration.
The idea was promising. Maybe it is really the narration- although some of the freedom this housemade has about the house seems most improbable- that robbed this plot of intrigue and interest; it could have been much better
Can't do 13 hours of dull murmuring. Sorry; returning
