#1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nora Roberts enchants again with this beloved classic about the passionate and headstrong MacGregor family.
Brooding loner Preston McQuinn's new apartment, like his life, is just the way he prefers it - dark and empty. But when sunny Cybil Campbell comes barging into his well-ordered gloom, he can't deny a grudging fascination with his bright, bubbly neighbor. Preston thought he'd closed the door on love for good, so why is he suddenly longing to open up his heart to his incredibly perfect neighbor?

"Story ok, Narrator Awful! Just Awful!"
This is one of Nora's early books and thank goodness she's gotten better. This book is one-step away from a young reader book. The female lead is 24 and sounds and acts like she is 16 with little to no life experience. She's the type of person you might like in college and doesn't change after college so you avoid her.
The narrator talks way too fast. It's as if she's has a limited amount of time to reading the script. No conversational tone just spewing out the words at warp speed in this Pollyanna, bright sunny, meet me in St. Louis kind of tone. The male character tone is fine but it was just too much. Luckily, I didn't use a credit on this book and it unfortunately cost $5. The sample was of the male lead talking because if it was the female talking I would have never purchased it.
The narrator ruined a ho-hum book and made it awful. I will never listen to Angela Dawe read anything if she hasn't improved past this type of reading.
this book is one of the best books I have read in some time. it goes into detail it describes the place and the events and the city that makes you want to go there put you in the book itself is so well-written thank you Nora Roberts thank you so much.
"Hate this narrator"
Hate this narrator. Just don't like her style. Might have liked the story better if read by someone else.
Not one of her better stories. Hard to get into. To many twist and turns
""And Why Not, I Ask You!""
oh yes, this is a re listen as our gal Cyb is just so up lifting, she makes you smile. Now, if you don't want a listen to brighten your day, then this is not for you.
Cyb and the MacGregor because they have optimism. It makes you realize, if you take the time, that having a positive go get'em attitude pays off.
She make all the males yummy sounding. She did a fab job on Preston our hero. She is the MacGregor come to life! I just love all the scenes he is in.
I purchased this entire series all at once as I am a big fan of Ms. Dawe. I have not purchased the other classic series N.R. has released due to poor readers.
this book makes your toes curl, makes you laugh, and cry as our heroine evokes all these emotions for a 90's classic N.R. book. Nothing heavy, but owning this entire series makes you smile big time.
"The Perfect Neighbor - Perfect Fun"
Near the top.
All of the MacGregor books by Nora Roberts are similar in style, each with the meddlesome patriarch stirring the pot. For some reason this one and The Winning Hand are my favorites.
The first time I heard Angela Dawe read was an experience for me. Each book she gets even better. She could make a phone book sound exciting. She's very adept at changing the voices, especially from male to female.
Cybil thinks McQuinn is down and out when she follows him to a bar where he plays a sax. Then she makes friends with the bar owner which angers McQuinn, resulting in an unusual walk home.
The whole series is a fun read. They are all individual books, but the characters run through them all. You'll enjoy them. Take a chance on some fun quick reads.
"I loved the whole series on the MacGregor."
