Ok you ever see those small town shows where everyone knows everyone and there is a cast of quirky characters? yeah that's this book. I was hella entertained. I was utterly disappointed that the very first sex scene between the characters was behind closed doors. it totally went fade to black and they woke up the next morning. I was seriously like WTF!!!. The other sex scenes were glossed over as if the author wasn't comfortable writing them. If you don't like or aren't good at writing sex scenes DON'T TRY TO DO IT!! I would have preferred them not be in there than have them done poorly.
On a better note, if i could live in this town i totally would....lol.
Story. 2.5 (not a solid 3 because of the piss poor sex scenes)
narrator - 3
"Mostly great moments"
Overall, I liked this book. I think another series had other characters iin it, but it was easy to follow the thread. There were some great comic relief moments. And some suspension moments. However I felt some of the character development was lacking. I liked the narrator and the townsfolk. I just wish there was a bit more development.
"Unbelievably bad!!! What, are we in Jr High??"
I tried to get through this book but it was just too awful. I'm sorry but adult professionals don't act like this. If you like Jr High drama you may like this book. It started out slow and then just got stupid. It was so ridiculous and unbelievable I kept rolling my eyes page after page and finally gave up. Life is too short to spend it being irritable listening to bad fiction.
I love the next generation of "Forever" books!! I love the whole story and so glad to be reading the next generation.
I agree with others that the plot and characters were very simplistic. Not enough barriers in place to care if the main characters stay together or not. I have a little over an hour left and I don't care how it ends. I am requesting a refund.
I sooo love this!! It feels like coming home after a long vacation.. Can't wait to read the book itself..
I never rate books, but this one was so terrible that I felt the need to share my review. The entire story was unrealistic with the townspeople helping them solve the mystery and everything about the whole story was ridiculous.
"Cheesy Story. Great Narration though!"
Geez this is one of the cheesiest books I have listened to in a long time and it was really hard to get though and finish. I really think this Bluegrass series has run it's course and is starting to feel like Deliverance.
The romance portion of this book was just dull, boring and cheesy. The story line and plot were stupid. The aunts, uncles, sisters, mothers, fathers, grandmothers, in-laws, etc., wielding weapons and ear coms to save the heroine was just too much and too stupid.
The entire town seems to be related in some way or another, hence the "Deliverance" reference.
I am absolutely done with this series. ugh! Kathleen Brooks Women of Power series was so much better, its hard to believe it is the same author.
As for the narration, it was fantastic! I love Eric G. Dove. He is a wonderful narrator. All the women sound like women, the men sound sexy. Everyone gets their own distinct voice and his reading voice is amazing. I highly recommend the narrator. I cannot recommend this cheesy, nauseating story.
I am a really big fan of Ms Brooks' Bluegrass stories - I have listened to them all, some more than once. This was honestly the first time that I was disappointed.
I liked that even in growing old, the beloved characters from the original series have still remained the heart and soul of the town. Even Ryan and Sienna's long-time stand-off is believable and the twist in their relationship adds excitement to the story. As far as the support of the whole town goes, this was a little far-fetched.
I hope the next story is better, I'd really like to see how the kids all end up.
As always, the narration was perfect.
