Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 5/25/2011

    " I really liked parts of this book. A strong heroine, a female doctor. A stubborn hero. The historical information about medical procedures was ver interesting. Some of the religeon was a bit to pat, but that could work for some readers. "

    " I know I said I was going to take a break from this author but this was on my bookcase and since I had nothing else to read I though I'd start it. I'm glad I did. A lot more romance, clean and cute.

    Moral Note: Does say jackarse, and talks about breasts in relation to breast cancer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 3/17/2011

    " I have not laughed so much (while reading a book) in a long time. While there is real drama woven into the story, the humor is fantastic. I agree with other reviewers that the one part near the end seemed awkward, but it did not detract from the great humor. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 2/10/2011

    " Cathy Marie Hake has definitely become one of my favorite authors of all time. This book has simply reinforced my decision. I love how it had me laughing yet the humor never distracted you from the plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 1/19/2011

    " 3.5 A very enjoyable read. I really like when you get a spunky heroine, but the hero is just as likely to spar back. I laughed out loud many times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 1/9/2011

    " Another gutbuster! I laughed and laughed! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Misty | 11/27/2010

    " I'm usually a very big fan of books by Cathy Marie Hake but this wasn't her best work. I did enjoy it very much but it did not catch my attention as much as her other works I have read. It was, however, a very enjoyable read and I look forward to reading more of her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colette | 10/22/2010

    " I resist historical fiction lately, but this one is worth the exception. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 10/12/2010

    " This was a clean read, which I like. It was also a book that would frequently not make sense to me. I've never had to stop, go back and re-read parts so much, just to figure out what was going on in the story. It was not written well in that way. "
