The story was good, I didn't care for narrator

The book was good however I really couldn't get past the narrator. It made the character sound weak and whiny. Same/similar voice, it got hard to tell which sister was speaking in a few cases.

Narrator Ruins Story

My apologies to the author who probably wrote a sweet book to read on a Summer day. However the narrator chooses to use an overly deep southern accent for characters, even adding high whiny tones and seemingly wrong emotions for different phrases. I couldn’t finish.

Could be much better

I looked forward to reading this book and decided to listen to the audio nook while I hike and walk. The narrator is very disappointing. This could be due in large part to the great many talented narrators I have listened to over the years, along with their excellent performances. Listening to this audiobook, I kept thinking over and over that this narrator should NOT be performing audiobooks. I have not looked to see who narrates the other books in this series; however, I will not listen to them unless there is a new narrator.

My disappointment in the audiobook has colored my perception of the book overall. I think the story has/had potential, but it needs quite a bit more “something“ before I could recommend this book.

Boring

This book bored me. I found nothing exciting about it. It was very predictable and I struggled to finish it. I regret wasting an audible credit.

Terrible book

Very simple, predictable, and shallow. Very little character development. Even the title is unoriginal. Disappointing

More of a short story

While I enjoyed this series, it could have been written in 3 books. Wish it were offered in box set. I hate using a credit on a 3 hour book. I listened to two books in one day.
