Publisher's Summary

Celeste Nichols has always preferred to keep to herself in her hometown of Pine Gulch, Idaho...until she becomes an instant celebrity! When one of her children's stories becomes a major success, she's suddenly the talk of the town. Celeste should be gloriously happy...but something, someone, special is still missing from her life. Could the return of her childhood crush be the answer?

Flynn Delaney has moved back home for his daughter's sake. Yet all the millionaire's resources can't help the little girl heal from the tragic loss of her mother. Shy librarian Celeste and her stories do hold some indefinable magic, though. Flynn came home looking for support - can he find that, and true love, in the one who got away?

    "Narrator needs to take less breaks"

    The stories were good- perhaps a bit sappy, but that's OK. The reader or editor of the recording need to MOVE ALONG! She took a breath and a break after every sentence! I had to put the speed on 1.25 just to keep my attention. Every space between sentences I kept thinking, "...yes...and...get on with it already!"

    "Narrator not my style"

    I might have been able to get into this book, but did not enjoy the narrator's style. When reading she regularly broke sentences in odd places. She does not seem to really feel the emotions of the characters but reads in a rather rote Pollyanna style.

    "Great story, not so great narrator"

    This was a lovely little Christmas story. It especially appealed to me since the protagonist is a librarian. But the narration takes away from it. She's a reader rather than an actor. Odd pauses halfway through each sentence means that you lose the rhythm of the story. Also the habit of ending every other sentence in a question feels strange. I might not have noticed if it weren't for the fact that I always have a book playing and know just how much of a difference a great narrator can make to a story. So, I'm disappointed.

    "Decent story...slow narrator"

    It's two stories around Christmas. Stories themselves are decent. Probably would have preferred reading instead. The narration was so slow and long pauses. It took me a while to get used to it. I did eventually, so the slowness didn't bother me as much on the second story.

    "Had to speed up the story because of the narration"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Celeste Ciulla’s performances?

    I didn't like the narrator's performance of this book. She had odd pauses and "upspeak" that was distracting to me. I sped up the playback speed to 1.5 time normal so that it wouldn't be as noticeable.

    "Romance"

    A feel good romance that was just not for me. Not bad characters, but, I kept waiting for the end and then... there is a second book I did not go onto.
