Sleeping on Couches

I couldn’t listen to this in it’s entirety between the over the top country accent that sounded absolutely fake and the narrators nasally (maybe sick) voice I couldn’t go more than halfway before I gave up.

Not my cup of tea

This book is meant to be a quick listen book but I found it difficult to get into, because I didn’t like the narration. With the narration there were a few character mix ups and very distracting background noises. The story wasn’t my cup of tea as I didn’t think there was much romance between the two characters.

A Very Good Independent Woman Story...

I thought "Sleeping On Couches," depict a good story for a woman who was looking to get back out on her own, especially after really volatile relationship.

I think Nicole was able to see the situation and express it very clearly for one to understand and move on from and even learn from. For her to be able to keep moving forward towards her new life.

The narration by Caroline Downs I thought was actually brilliant. She was able to capture all the different characters and give them their own distinguishing voices, each one came through clearly. I do recommend this book to others to listen to.

Gritty storyline

This is a good survivor book. Not a subject you find a lot of but unfortunately it happens. It’s good to see a fighter get her HEA. Likeable characters. Good narration.

Good!

It’s a good story and a quick listen, the narration didn’t thrill me, but it was still good. A few character mix ups and distracting background noises, but overall a great quick listen.

sweet story

I enjoyed the story. It was sad but very tender. The southern voice reading it was perfect for the farm love story itself. There were a few minor mistakes (like mixing up character names in scenes but nothing major).

Nice short story

This is a nice short story. About the love and loss and secrets. The narration was had a few issues that are mentioned in other reviews. Good characters dealing with a strong subject.

Good Story

I enjoyed this story. It's sweet and has likable characters. These two women have to overcome struggles and pain in their past. I just felt like it was missing something to bring it from a good story to a great one.

The narration wasn't my favourite. There were some mistakes and background noises.

Shed that baggage

Personal and interpersonal conflict weave through the lives of the women in this book in a predictably unpredictable fashion. Several social issues facing women today are well addressed here. I appreciate that they are addressed within the framework of women who love women. The way this group of women confront their life experiences and the fallout from their behavior makes this a great read, If you are looking for nice smelling roses remember you have to fertilize them with manure first some times. I really enjoyed Sleeping on Couches and will read it again. Caroline Downs does a great job bringing the individual journeys and emotions to life through her narration.

Not for me.

This one could not hold my attention. Too slow for me. I kept backing it up and starting again a couple of times. Just not my kind of story. Thanks for the chance to listen, though.

Great story

This was an awesome story. I never thought I would like books like these. The only problem I had was the narration .
