Summary

A tropical paradise sets the stage for a turbulent passion in this unforgettable tale from number-one New York Times best-selling author Nora Roberts.

To reconcile with her long-estranged father, Laine Simmons travels to Hawaii. But she soon finds her motives being questioned by his arrogant, judgmental, and extremely attractive business partner, Dillon O’Brian. It doesn’t help that every infuriating confrontation with the man only makes her want him more.

As Laine struggles to heal her past, she has to fight her treacherous heart - or admit to herself that this is one battle she’d rather lose….

Not loving Dillon and his molesting ways!

I really hated this book! I really hated that the main character was basically a rapist or an almost rapist! Gross!

Just lovely!

Wonderful development of characters. Could really get emotionally involved for the different characters. Loved the dialogue. Loved the feisty heroine! French accent great! Have enjoyed listening to this time and again.

Read too fast to enjoy

Would you listen to Island of Flowers again? Why?

No, I would read it but the narrator seems to be in a hurry to get through the book, not leaving time for you imagination to picture what she is saying. I quit listening after 5 minutes.

Would you be willing to try another one of Justine Eyre’s performances?

NEVER

Interesting early Nora work.

Where does Island of Flowers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Maybe In the middle. Nora Roberts is my favorite Author. This is clearly one of her early books. She improved a lot over the years.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Island of Flowers?

When Dillon shows up at her classroom in France.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Most of the time. At times to was a bit slow.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When he thought she was selling her body not her locket and was so angry with her.

Any additional comments?

I am from Hawaii. The Narrator should have done a better job finding out how to pronounce the Hawaiian place names on Kauai. She really botched that. She also tried to give the local people some kind of an accent which came out sounding like some sort faint European accent. This could not be more wrong.
