Reader can barely pronounce words

The reading is erratic and halts and starts at unforeseeable moments. This detracts and distracts.

Didn't like it as much as I'd hopedto

I really tried to like this story, but it was so uninteresting. The characters were not very vibrant, and the story (the miniscule and mundane day to day running of a bed-and-breakfast) dragged on so much, I could barely get through it. I grew quite bored with it and ended up skimming to the end.
Even the love story part of the story was seriously lacking.

I listened to the audio version, and I did not like the narrator much at all. She often put the emphasis on the wrong parts of a sentence and many words were mispronounced. Sadly, I don’t think I would every read another book by this author or listen to another book with this narrator.

The narrator is just awful.

The story is actually quite nice, like a Hallmark movie to listen to. But the narrator does such a poor job of enunciating and pronouncing words she slurs and drops off here and there. I couldn’t even get through it it was too hard to listen to.

nothing happens

the narrator is very difficult to listen to. her speech cadence was choppy and her pronunciations were all over the place like a mix of multiple accents or something.

the story was perfectly fine, but nothing happened. it felt like a recitation of her daily actions sort of like reading a grocery list.

An excellently smooth and quick read.

Autumn at Apple Hill: A Moonlit Hearts Romance Series
By: Angie Ellington Narrated by: Emily Coupe

This is a cute story about finding love when its least expected. It is very well written and definitely pulled at my heartstrings.

After a “not so happy” ending to her last relationship, Elise is given an opportunity for a fresh start. An unfortunate loss in the family has provided Elise with the chance to move home and to take over her family’s bed and breakfast. After much thought, she chooses to go back to the business that has filled her heart with pleasant childhood memories. While she is doing a great job keeping the inn running, Elise encounters a new guest. She immediately labels him a “typical business man” from the city and is all too familiar with his type; or is she?

Autumn at Apple Hill is an excellently smooth and quick read. I rate it with 4 Boundless stars and highly recommend it.

Heartwarming Story

Where does Autumn at Apple Hill rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

a favorite for sure

What did you like best about this story?

the timeless love of family and loved ones passed who remain in our hearts is an important role in this story in addition to a sweet romance

What does Emily Coupe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

theatrical, engaging & a slight hint of an Australian accent that would come through now & again was an added bonus. I like to look up the narrators to get a face to go with the voice & read she is from Australia.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I'm not a writer so I'm not sure but something about faith and love

Any additional comments?

I prefer clean romance & Angie Ellington's books are cute stories..funny as well & none have cursing or scenes that would make me blush...so I like that!

I Want My Credit & My Time Back

This is single handedly the worst narrator I've ever heard. It almost could have been a cute hallmark movie type story, but even for that it really really really drags about totally mundane details. The narrator honestly makes it so unbearable. I only finished for the sake of getting my money's worth. She had annunciation issues and sounded like she had food in her mouth with a plugged nose the whole time.

Hallmark for your ears!

Wonderful story of Elise returning to her hometown after inheriting her grandmother bed and breakfast. Sparks fly when Luke checks in. What follow is a delightful Hallmark Channel worth’s my story of two people finding each other as they find themselves. I really enjoy this narrator but she does not have different voices for different characters so you have to pay close attention which isn’t hard because the story is so good and she does a good job bring bring it to life. I just can’t rate a 5 even though I do love her!

Small town romances!

I love small town romances and this one fits the bill perfectly. Elise has moved back home to run her family Bed and Breakfast. It has been her dream, and newly divorced sees this as her fresh start. When Luke comes in with his smug attitude, they clash immediately. But the more time they spend together, the more the air changes. This book has such a wonderfully warm feeling to it. You just want to visit this place and delve into the beautiful surroundings and enjoy the peacefulness. Elise is the person you would love to have as a friend. Her personality is warm and loving. Luke has some rough edges, but once smoothed out, he proves his worth. There are definitely some issues between the two. But that is what makes a great story. Ellington also adds in some funny scenes, like Elise and the biscuits...but you will have to listen to hear it! This is a great afternoon listen, relaxing for the weekend.

I have never heard Emily Coupe before and found she has a very pleasant voice.She has a variety of voices and for the most part it's easy to tell who is speaking. There are a couple of places it does get a little murky and then clears up again. Her pacing is good and she adds a lot to this story.

Romance in a small town

I am a city dweller and given the choice, I will remain one, but there is something appealing about reading small-town romances. Autumn at Apple Hill ticked the box.

Elise has relocated to Apple Hill to open a Bed and Breakfast establishment. She’s divorced and this is her new start. When moody, crabby Luke arrives as a guest, his presence is both frustrating and annoying the Elise. Luke’s attitude is often unfriendly but neither of them can ignore the attraction between them.

Our couple have a few ups and downs but the more time they spend together, the more they get to know one another and the barriers between them lower. This was a light story and was an easy listening experience.

Emily Coupe narrates the story quite well. I did find there were times I was uncertain which character was speaking. I am unsure if this was a flaw in the writing or narration. There were several mispronounced words that frustratingly jarred me out of the story.

You can't help but want to live in this story

Apple Hill is just the sort of place where I can see myself on vacation or even living there. You can feel the small-town comfort throughout the story and practically smell the burned biscuits (you'll have to listen to the story to catch this reference.) As in her other romance stories, Angela grows a sweet, loving bond between her characters, and you won't know which person to side with during the rift. Good thing you don't have to really choose. Emily does a good job with her performance with steady pacing. I'll be waiting for the next story. **I received a free review copy of this book.
