Really Great Entertainment

I have listened to the first three stand-alone books in the first Boxset of this series somewhat out of order and that made absolutely no difference at all. I've loved every one of them and can honestly recommend them.
Here are my voluntary and unbiased reviews of the promotional copies of the audiobooks which I listened to.
1. Mistletoe Mayhem
Sawyer and Devon should have married before he enlisted to fight in the war but she didn't want to be left at home while he was away in the army.
He comes home injured and she realizes she made the biggest mistake of her life by not marrying him so just how is she going to make this happen now?
Linda Bridey will tell you how in this beautifully crafted tale which had me captivated and entranced. I must confess that I seem to be a bit addicted to these stories and am always happy to gorge myself on them.
Mary Ann Weathers does a good job with her competent narration.
2. After the Storm
This time we read/listen to the romantic story of Tim and Renee and how they try desperately to keep their love for each other and life itself alive while life and various horrid men try their damnedest to prevent that from happening.
Thank goodness for the happily-ever-after or I would have been a wreck!
Tim and Renee come across as strong, yet caring people and I loved that about them. I was also highly amused by the antics of Skippy - he is just so cute!
Linda Bridey has again managed to capture the essence of life and love in this spellbinding story and Mary Ann Weathers has read it very pleasingly.
3. Spirit Journey
This audiobook had two interlinked books in it, both about members of the Lakota tribe. In these stories the author never shies away from life or living. She tells it "like it is" and at the same time makes it interesting and un-put-down able. Both are emotion evoking in that one seems to personally go through the exact emotion that is appropriate for the character at that moment. That is brilliant writing!
The first story, Spirit Journey, told about the tribe's spiritual journey which was amazingly captivating and also tells of the blossoming love between
Skippy and Peanut and her daughter, Annie. He is shy and she is cute but strong and she knows a good man when she finally finds him.
The second story, Gossamer Threads, is about Joey and his deep and all-consuming love for his wife, Snow Song. It also tells about Runner and his relationship with the tribe and the community and touches on the budding relationship between Jaylin and Eric and of the relationship between Rory and Kyle.
There are a few surprises in this story and they teach us that although we can't control what other people do, we can take responsibility for our own actions.
I found both tales interesting and quite educational while being wonderfully entertained.
The narration was good with interesting voice-acting by Mary Ann Weathers.

Oh that Narrator!!

This is the very first time I've ever reviewed any book. I wish I could say this was great...the story was good...but the narrator with her nasally characters was just awful! I wish she wouldn't be the narrator for the other 2 books...I will NOT read them simply because I can't handle her narration. I'm sorry Audible...this is a MISS!

Extremely moving with a little bit of suspense

This story gives a good insight to the period around the end and soon after WWI. Very difficult to put down. LOVE IT.

An end to a great story

Being from Montana these stories have made my lonely life away from my home bearable. I hope I can find more. the writer Linda Bridey has a real talent for making one feel as if they are right there. Thanks and hope for more.

Sounds like it was written by an 11 year old girl.

It's a supposed to be a romantic novel. It would have been More romantic if it started, "They kissed. The end.

The voices were horrible. Devon sounded like a boy half of the time.

The scene with the cougar was so ridiculous and unrealistic I had to quit listening at that point.

Fun story, Well told, Great Narrator

Would you consider the audio edition of Dawson Chronicles Box Set, Books 1 - 3 to be better than the print version?

I prefer the audio version to the print. There are so many characters in this book that I can't imagine trying to come up with distinct voices for them all. While Mary Ann Weathers has several voices that sound the same, you can still tell who is supposed to be talking. And it's clear she tried to take cues from the text when it came to her choices.

What did you like best about this story?

Even though the romantic bits are a little hokey sometimes, I like that the stories aren't all sunshine and rainbows. Tragic things happen, but the community deals with them together. Mistletoe Mayhem deals with injustice; After the Storm deals with rape; Spirit Journey got a little strange with the Dakota magic, but even it dealt with some heavy issues. But the story stays well-paced and interesting.

Which scene was your favorite?

It's not a scene, per say, but I did enjoy Renee's falling-in-love arc.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did cry after a certain death. I won't give away who's.

Any additional comments?

I see one or two reviews that comment on how terrible the narrator is. Not every narrator is everybody's cup of tea, but I have to disagree personally. I loved this narrator, and I would listen to her again. She didn't just read it, she acted it. And while not every audiobook narrator is a character voice actor, she did well with the limits of her voice, considering how many characters there were, both male and female.Some narrators get followings the way writers do. This one likely will, too.
