Sweet / clean love stories with the wrong narrator

Stories are sweet but the narration ruins the effect. Odd phrasing, unnecessary pauses, and over-emphasized words make the stories less than they could be. Unfortunately, adjusting the playback speed didn't help. I've enjoyed this narrator in the past, but IMO, a younger-sounding voice would have been a better choice for the 20-something protagonists. I'll go back to reading the book.

worth listening to

Well written. The stories worked well together because each author covered different era's all surrounding the Kissing tree.

The Kissing Tree

I love the way the books all came together through the generations. All the stories were very well written. The narration was good. Clean romance, highly recommend.

Hallmark movie worthy!

I absolutely love these novellas and how they all centered around the infamous Kissing Tree. Each author displayed their own writing style, so individually they were wonderful, but together the reader better understands the heart of Oak Springs, TX and it’s Kissing Tree.

I could totally see each one of these becoming a wonderfully classic Hallmark movie!

It’s clean romance is perfect for all ages.

Enjoyable and poignant

loved this book although the narrator dips her voice down so softly at times is hard to hear without headphones
