Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 2/13/2014

    " A single mother struggles to care for her young daughter, who is able to see and speak to beings no one else can see. When a being tells the daughter about an impending disaster, the girl asks for help from a man, Martin. Martin has problems of his own already, but together, the ghost and the young girl will help the family. It's an interesting tale with a touch of the supernatural. Very enjoyable. "

    " I liked the relationship between the two... Love happens for mysterious reasons. I was personally touched by the description of the hero having trouble facing his injury - denying it, adapting to it, so much like my husband when he faced heart failure. The story uses blindness to force the person to see the love connection buried under layers of pain and mistakes. This is very profound as I see blindness happening right now to my mother-in-law and she is definitely struggling with it. what soul lesson does she need to learn in this lifetime? It is not for me to point out... sigh! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynnea | 1/30/2014

    " I read the Reader's Digest condensed version of this book. Well done; I don't see why a additional 300 pages would be necessary. This book was definitely different than what I normally read but a quick easy distraction about angels, ghosts, hockey, and blindness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 1/29/2014

    " Loved this book. Very easy reading "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin Kaplan | 1/28/2014

    " I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would. I loved the twist of learning about the life of a wedding planner and how her beliefs and "magic" affected the life of a pro-hockey player!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dizzyk | 1/17/2014

    " I pretty much like anything dealing with hockey by default but I usually stay far, far away from romance novels. This one actually had a rather interesting story around it and I actually enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanne Linn | 1/17/2014

    " I love this book. I've read it twice and am going to read it again as soon as my sister loans me the copy I gave HER for Christmas! She also loves it! It is a tearjerker, and we both found things we related to in it. I think it is my favorite Luanne Rice book and I love most of what I have read by her. I sent her a letter recently that I'd written when I read it while working for Colorado DOC. She responded that she would like to give some books to my library. So I sent her information for the Colorado prison libraries and hope that she is able to donate some to them now. Really....read it!!! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 1/11/2014

    " Good story, just too long and too detailed "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Psue Mac | 12/30/2013

    " It was OK....nor as good as the Hubbard Beach series "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mommy | 12/9/2013

    " Too "hearts & flowers" and mushy! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 11/9/2013

    " I'm new to Luanne Rice's style of writing and while I really liked this story, it had several slow parts that I could have done without. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pauline | 10/5/2013

    " This is the second book of Luanne Rice and I like it.. "

    " What a great book. I couldn't put it down. The best book that I have read from this author. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julia | 9/27/2013

    " SACHRIN!!! too sweet - no conflict or energy. wont even finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 8/13/2013

    " Little bit of hockey, little bit 'o love, little bit of magical hope, the kind of book I enjoy, but try to avoid as I get too stuck into them - and waste the day without much new knowledge to show for it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 8/3/2013

    " This was a good book about a hockey player who ended up blind as a result of hockey injuries. It teaches about the need to forgive as a way to have peace with yourself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeri | 12/19/2012

    " I generally enjoy Luanne Rice's novels because all the little details of the settings and characters make the story come to life. In this one, the heroine does get a bit annoying on the subject of forgiveness (a big theme in the story) but otherwise this was an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 8/14/2012

    " Read this one too when I was reading a bunch of Luanne Rice's books years ago. But it was a really good one too! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 6/17/2012

    " Really loved this book. My first book by Rice; if all of her books are this good, I am going to be a fan for life. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Johanna | 5/23/2012

    " It was okay. The main guy character was a little too macho for me, but I'm always game for a love story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fran | 5/7/2012

    " I am taking a break from Twilight and reading a quick lite read for the holiday! :-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katherine | 3/23/2012

    " Canadian Hockey Player meets Wedding Planner mother- cheesy, love story, but easy to read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dad | 2/9/2012

    " This is a second read for me and I enjoyed it. It shows what the love of a good woman can do to change a man for the best. Even though things look like they are bad, living that love and trying to deserve that love changes you and good comes out of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 8/7/2011

    " This is an author I want to read again. Mother with a child who "sees" things. She is a wedding planner. How does she deal with a "strange" child, a man in a very BIG light. Can her child bring her together with this man and is very big probelms. Well written. "

    " I don't know what is wrong with me lately, but I loved this book. It was sappy, had a very unbelievable, and I guess it was just what I needed to read right now. I cried several times throughout the book, and I would recommend it to anyone who wanted a heartfelt read. "
