Review: Ever After by Nora Roberts

Nora Roberts {Facebook}
Publisher: Brillance Audio
Publication Date: December 15, 2010
Audio Book {5 hr}
Source: Public Library
Genre: Paranormal
Characters: Elena, Connell
Challenge: 100+, Whisper Stories
My Rating:

Wearing an ancient star pendant, an enchanting woman journeys to an otherworldly land – and introduces a skeptical stranger to the magical powers of love…

Elena arrives on this secluded island, in the middle of a storm, with only one inhabitant. There is some magical myth that Connell’s, the island only resident, will arrive with the mark of the star. And of course Elena arrives wearing the star pendant he thought he had destroyed.

After the two of them share a heated first kiss, she announces her love for him. This is rather sudden for my tastes, and only after one kiss.

I didn’t really enjoy this on at all. It was too short to connect with the characters which made it feel somewhat forced. Even as a paranormal novella, it seemed far-fetched to be believable or relatable.
Read by Justine Eyre
Duration: 5 hours

The narrator did a great job getting the accents and painting the vivid picture Nora had written. The narration takes nothing away from the overall novella. The narration was a B.

Ok so confession: I've never read Nora, but I've loved her made for tv movies ;)

This one sounds good :)

I love her made for tv movies too! I really liked High Noon, both the book and her tv movie. I very rarely come across a Nora Roberts book that I don't like, but this one was my first.

Brilliant and fun to read and, of course, so romantic it grabs you from the first book to the last, with Parker closing the circle.
If you have a romantic heart these four books will delight and open a space within you that will stay with you for a very long time.
