Summary

From Book 1: What impact would it have when everything suddenly faded to black? 

For Mia, a crowded subway ride changes her entire life. Retreating to the wilderness helps her cope with a world that is suddenly too loud, too turbulent. 

Her existence safely contained to the small cottage on the lake, she is unprepared for the neighbor that moves across the bay. 

A career-ending injury has Jared permanently benched. His reputation as The Enforcer won’t survive the unanticipated responsibilities awaiting him. 

Away from the public eye, he adjust to his new reality, under the quiet observation of the intriguing hermit on the other side of the water.

Heartfelt stories

3 box set
Change in Tide
Change of View
Change of Pace
All three books are great. A lot of heartfelt moments in these books. The couples are all around 40 years old. The characters are great people that you can relate to. These are all standalone books. If bought separately you would not need to read them in order, there are no reoccurring characters amongst the books. I enjoyed the narration. I believe they were different narrators for all three books. I definitely recommend this set of books. 🎧Audiobook Obsession

Northern Lights Series

A Change Of Tide is a entertaining listen. I like how the story is based in Northern Ontario, Canada as I live in Southwestern Ontario and have been to a couple cities listed. The characters are realistic and fully developed.
Narrators Charley Ongel and Tor Thom brought the story and characters to life. These two natural chemistry always shines. through. Always enjoy listening to these two Narrate.

A Change A View is a different type of story that for so some reason I struggled to get into the story as I was a bit confused. I don't know if it was all the characters or I missed something from the beginning but I didn't enjoy this one as much. The narrator's Austin Barringer and Anneliese Reynolds are both new narrator's to me. I found a new narrator to drool over. Lol . Austin's performance was perfect. Anneliese gave Leelo her own voice. Her inflection is mature and reflected the different emotions the Leelo felt. Together these two brought the story and characters to life.

A Change Of Pace was my favourite story of the series. I loved the characters and the storyline kept me listening till the very end. My favourite character is Boulder the dog. Both narrator's Stephanie-Nemeth-Parker and Mathew Madoux are new to me and I loved the dual narration. I enjoyed both narrator's and would definitely listen to them again.

Overall the stories are well written and entertaining with a lovely cast of talented narrators that brought out the stories and characters.

I enjoyed most of this box set.

I received a copy of Northern Lights box set in exchange for an honest review.
Book 1 A Change in Tide: For this one I will only review the narration because I didn’t get past the first few minutes. I’m not a fan of Ongel or Thorn. I tried but I just couldn’t do it.
Book 2 A Change in View: The narration was good. I liked the story. And I like the fact that the main characters were in their 40s. I would read this one three stars for both story and narration.
Book 3 A Change of Pace: This One was my favorite of all three books. Once again the characters are in their forties. The narration was great for both the male and female characters. I enjoyed the story. I give this one 4 stars for both narration and story.

engrossing trio

Book 1. Mia irked me from the beginning. She assumed too much and acted superior, but not too superior to be a voyeur and make false assumptions nonstop. I tried to like her but couldn't- no redemption!! The female narrator Charley Ongel grated on my nerves and didn't fit the story.
Book 2. A lot of the sabatoge and natural disasters . Whew what bad luck!! I liked thst Leelo's kids matured and finally saw what a scumbag her ex was. Roar was amazing in all ways. The perfect hero.
Book 2. The third story was intense at times and loaded with drama and emotions all over the place. I was happy to see some progress and resolution to some difficult issues , and the story finally has a hea for its' well deserved recipients. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. All the narrators Except Ongel did a great job bringing it to life.

1st book dragged a bit

I get why readers arent fond on Mia. shes self righteous and as the book continued, I disliked her more. The way she snapped at her friend, who has been there through all her heavy baggage, for a dude she just started fucking irritated me. It wasnt until he called her out on the treatment of her friend, she realized how wrong she was. And still, it was her friend who had to make amends first. Mia is the type of woman who doesnt make a good friend to her female friends. At the thrust of dick, she lost all sense. Ugh

Northern Lights

These were the first stories by Freya Barker that I had the pleasure to listen to 🎧! I really enjoyed that all storylines were about matured couples redefining what their happily ever afters would be! These stories demonstrated how life brings about a change and that although struggles are experienced it’s how they are dealt with that determines how you obtain joy out of life. The narrators were also all new to me!! Their performances enhanced the story causing me to laugh out loud at times and fume with anger at others! Overall this was an enjoyable listening experience.
