I love this book and I'm being a bit picky (given that Susan Ericksen reads a lot of Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb) but Roarke's accent is not great. Likewise, the pronunciation of words like Foyer drive me mad. I don't know if it's an American v European thing but otherwise, it's a good reading.

Story is a bit uneven

Loved the parts of the story to do with the Aunt - the romance bit felt very tacked on. Felt like two different books really. Well read though. I enjoyed it enough to finish it.

Big fan of the books - really enjoyed the reading

Loved the book and the reading but I have one quibble.
Susan Ericksen, who's doing the reading, can't do an Irish accent. It's the same accent she used for Pitte in the Key trilogy and he was of indeterminate Irish/Welsh/God origin and although I can cope with it, it does make me cringe. I'm not looking forward to the books in which Roark and Eve head to Dublin :)

Beautifully read but...

I mean I still loved it and it had a great ending but to be honest, I found my attention waining a little during this one. Harry is Harry but the constant stream of badness is a bit exhausting. So much happens in each chapter that there's no downtime what so ever. I found myself wanting Harry to go and have a shower and a nap - possibly a meal too, just so that I could relax a bit

Nora Roberts at her best

I loved this book. Ethan & Grace's story is probably my favourite of the 4 - it's very well read and very satisfying

I enjoyed this story. It was a little weaker (in my opinion) than the others in the series but was still really warm and satisfying.
I will listen to this series again.

Loved it..

I had read and loved this series but thought it wouldn't translate well to audible and how wrong I was. I enjoyed this immensely. Great reading and great story. Am purchasing the others in this series immediately

Great ending to a good trilogy. Good characters and a good story. I preferred this trilogy to the Three Sisters trilogy as the men had an actual role in this one and didn't sound nearly as one dimensional. Would listen again. Very happy with these. I understand that the Irish/Welsh/mixed accents for Rowena and Pitte would be difficult for a reader but these sound a little like 'Darby O'Gill' in parts - small gripe, otherwise a great performance

I found this one a little less enthralling than the first in the series but still very enjoyable. - again the non American accents annoyed me a little but I still found the performance very good
