I’m a huge fan of Jayne Castle’s Harmony series

but Barbara Rosenblat is not the right narrator. Feisty 20-somethings sound like 80-year old smokers who are about to hack up a lung. I kept imagining Phyllis Diller in the sex scenes which wasn’t a good thing. I usually only leave positive book reviews but I’m frustrated with the casting.

Love the story

I listened to this last book but think I will read them instead if Ms Rosenblat continues to read them. All of her characters sound the same in her low gravelly voice. It was the same with the others she has read. Otherwise the story was good fun, as usual with this series.

I can't guess about the story ...

because the narration is annoying me so. I have liked Rosenblatt in the past and I don't know whether it's a problem with her voice or just a mismatch between narrator and books but I will just get them from the library in the future. I'll return this and not buy a Harmony book on audio until we're get a new narrator.

Wrong Narrator

The narrator has a great voice, however does not fit the story as she sounds like a very mature woman that has been smoking for 50 years. It doesn't not fit with a young romance - she sounds fine for the male voice but it sounds like the Guild Boss is romancing his grandmother.

Couldn't Finish

I enjoy the guild hunter series but this book did not meet expectations. The story was weak but the biggest problem was the narrator...her voice grated on my last nerve. I tried to finish but just couldn't. I'm returning this title.

Guild boss

Listening to a book performance by Barbara Rosenblatt is always a delight. Especially for a new Harmony story by Jayne Castle. Otis is a great addition to the collection of dust bunnies. Recommended.

Narrator spoiled the book

Narrator made this really hard to complete. I’m sure the print version will get a higher rating.

Absolutely Terrible Narration

If it weren’t for the appallingly bad narration, this would have been a 4 star review. It was so bad I had a hard time sticking to it and listening. I always enjoy Jane Castle’s stories, but I may have to stick to the Kindle version in the future. I’m disappointed to have wasted a free Audible credit on this.

Good story

I loved the story. I love the author, Jayne Castle aka Amanda Quick aka Jayne Ann Krentz.
The narration was not nearly as good as in her other works. The voice was entirely too masculine. No attempt was made to modify to different
characters.

One of the best Jayne Castle books in a while

The book had humor, and less pathos/angst, than JC's books usually have, in my opinion. And narrated by the amazing Barbara Rosenblatt, who is one off the few narrators who can nuance humor without the fake hahas, and doesn't get all fake 'girly' in the romantical scenes.

JC and BR are, for me, one of the great audio book teams, and I enjoyed this book.

Disappointed

Not one of JC's better book.
Narrator was disjointed in her reading. She often sounded as if she was reading the book for the first time and in many instances sounded as if she wasn’t sure what was coming next. Made the whole book sound tedious instead of interesting.

Use different narrator

I love JAK and her Castle books are excellent. This one is similar to others with enough difference to keep things interesting. Lucy is sometimes unreasonable/unrealistic - upset the male lead character couldn’t just drop everything; her pet’s destructive nature just glossed over (sorry it’s not cute) - but the most egregious is the match up between characters and narrator. There are hardly any character distinctions and Lucy seems to be about 50 and a heavy smoker, it just didn’t match. So while I think the book is as good as others the delivery let it down massively, will have to read the book myself

Perils of Preorders

I would never have purchased this if I had the opportunity to listen to the preview as the narration is awful for Lucy, the main character. It manages to be both whiny and gravelly at the same time, so a series of words that would sound reasonable in your mind if you were reading to yourself come out as a child's accusation when read by this narrator. I ended up disliking Lucy and the romance wasn't believable because of it. Strangely, the female narrator is better with the male voices. Story wise this is very similar to other recent Harmony books, female lead has an unusual talent, there's a conspiracy and they join with the male lead to defeat it.

Guild Boss

Another fantastic instalment into the underground of Illusion Town. Lucy and Gabriel are thrown together after she is kidnapped and he rescues her. Along with Otis the dust bunny they are in for some great adventures.

Not quite what I was expecting

I have been looking forward to this book for a while but I am a bit disappointed it seemed a bit thin on story almost as if it is setting the scene for the possible next books??? It was interesting the previous characters other than mr Smith and Runner didn’t appear seeing this was a new guild boss. It won’t stop me from reading further books. Look forward to the next one.
