I'm enjoying the story, it is the first of Jude Deveraux that I,ve listened to. However I am finding the Narration hard going. I am looking really for..Show More »ward to book 2. narrated by Davina Porter she is a dream to listen to and really brings the stories alive
Unfortunately this story was poorly written. The author dwelt on a problem ( and there where many) for pages and pages and then all of a sudden there ..Show More »was a solution. There was no change there was just a solution. Then at the end when some of the decisions where explained it was so far fetched that it was ridiculous.
Starts out pretty interesting with loads of boxes and history to go through. But the selection of who’s gonna be hired would have been interesting. Yo..Show More »u go through this whole chapter where Gemma thinks she’s doing everything wrong to get hired for the job while the other party is being exactly what the family ordered. When doom time comes you’re told that the other party went kicking and fussing but it would have been nice for more details. Also too many ‘she said’ s and ‘he said’ s; would have liked the book better without that. You can see that there are continuations with the series. Colin is the eldest and he’s got brothers and a sister who will make up future additions to the series. Should get pretty interesting. There is hinting that they will or want to get married but nothing is definite, NR leaves that for further novels. The story only picks up to peak interest with the Heart Stone Wishes with only 3 hrs left, would have liked more of it. Way too many references of the ‘other woman’ Jean being made, about how the whole town hates Jean and loves Gemma. The book ends with shocking revelation of child molestation and nothing is mention of the ‘thief’ being charged for past molestation's but is charged for past thefts. Didn't like that.
