I’m always surprised when I download a free book and it’s good! I loved the friendships love they all had for each other. Narrator was wonderful!!
I stayed a little confused throughout the book because of the many characters. I liked the reunion of old friends, but I would have liked to have known their ages. I couldn't follow along too good, but it wasn't bad. It was a free book and the first of a series, so I might choose another in the series and hopefully it will clear up my confusion.
Some secrets tear people apart and some will bond you stronger then before. Years have come and gone, but when Joel Shields passes away five friends come together to help his widow. Kristen was a second mother to them all during their teen years and Robin will work miracles to get friends back to Diamond Cove to support Kristen. Slowly all agreed and as expected AJ was the last hold out, but twenty years have passed and Joel was dead.
Helping Kristen go thru Joel’s paperwork and his things in the lighthouse, secrets are unveiled and Joel isn’t the man that everyone thought he was.
The secrets are revealed one by one and it touches everyone. Very compelling story and the characters are realistic. Good background on all and now I want to know more. Will definitely continue with the series. #TheLighthouse
It was difficult to keep up with the myriad of characters and remember who was who throughout the book. I found myself questioning why characters were overreacting they way they did to what seemed like minor inconveniences. Overall it was about friendship spanning decades and the descriptions of the lighthouse and island details were well done. It left a lot to be desired in substance but an easy listen.
A great story overall. Also, the narrator’s is soft.
It was so intriguing I couldn't put it down.The lovely scenery spoken about the structure and care of the lighthouse and how much the sentiment meant to this family absolutely wonderful.
I enjoyed the story of these women who knew each other for decades and how they came together through difficult times and reaffirmed the importance of their friendships! Excellent, easy to listen narration too!
this book was really enjoyable and I liked the narrator as well
Good book. A little hard to keep up with at times, but liked the story of friendship.
Very interesting, a good listen while on a long drive state to state.
I really liked the story. It made me think of my longtime friends and how to spend more time together!
The narrator has a great tone and made it easy to follow which character was speaking.
I’m looking forward to hearing the next books in this series!
Great for a free book. I really enjoyed the story and the characters.
This was a great book. Loved it from cover to cover.
I was very pleased with this book in the narration. I'm always happy when that happens. I drive all day and it really helps to pass the time more enjoyably if I'm listening to a good book. I do plan on listening to the other books in this series. I recommend this.
I enjoyed the story but the narrator was underwhelming. She had no enthusiasm.
The story was one you wanted here but I found the narration let it down a little. A little stilted and I found the pauses after every he said, she said etc a tad annoying
I began to listen because it was described as a romance, but that’s really just a subplot. I do think that the storyline is interesting as I don’t think I’ve seen anything written like this. There were a lot of things that I felt were a bit nuanced and definitely could have been edited out. Also, a lot of the characters feel one-dimensional, but I’m only about halfway through so I’ll give the book the benefit of the doubt.
Good free book
This book really pulls you in to the women's life that are in it
I really liked the theme that women need each other to go through the ups and downs of life together.
Really enjoyed it!
Quite slow and boring plot. if you are looking for something interesting or thrilling, this is not for you. Byt if you just want to pass time and you do not have an interesting book then it will do the job. At least narrator is good.
I enjoyed this book. Worth a read
Great work for author and narrator.
I had to keep reminding myself it is a romantic story which accounts for the feeling of slowness. It was a good story but just a bit too in-depth for my taste.
slow start but I finally got into the story. Good narration.
It was such a boring book. I went on 1.5x speed just to fish it quickly but still I failed to endure after 1 n half hour and stopped listening.
Narrator was a good one though.
Narration a bit slow. I bumped the speed up to 1.25 and it was much better.
Narrator was awful Her voice is far too unctuous, exaggeratedly soft. Didn’t get through the second chapter.
I truly liked this book and narrator was excellent
Good story about deep rooted friendships with some unsuspecting truths revealed.
I love, love, love this book series! I wish there were more! You won’t be disappointed.
Great story about loving friendships. I enjoyed the characters and story very much.
Lovely story with excellent narration.
Great book, kept my attention easily. This book makes you wander what you really know about people. Narrator did a good job there were so many characters.
Great story of friendships that spanned 30 years, lies and deeption as they gather for a funeral. Felt as if I was there with them as they struggled and overcame!
This is the best story I have heard in years.
Made a connection to all of the characters, and could feel every emotion they did like I. was in the room. Brilliant writing, fantastic reading. Definitely recommend
It was a well written story! Loved the characters
it was a very good book
This story I found most entertaining. It kept my interest through out.
it was ok, not much of a climax to it.
i really enjoyed this book.
Enjoyable story. Well read voice variation helps with characters nice ‘growing” characters. I feel like I know someone that resembles them all so it was easy to picture in my minds eye. I will listen to this again. Great for road trips
The book had a minor plot with little substance!
Rather silly predictable plot and sugary sweet over the top sentimental narration. Somewhat boring, wish I hadn't bothered. Only continued to read to the end in the futile hope that something interesting was going to happen. It didn't.
Not bad, enough to make me want to listen more, but a slow, gentle story. Not gripping or enough to make me want to read more of the series.
Took a while to get my head around all the characters but once I had I enjoyed the story. Albeit Joel got off too lightly.
