Who knew Suffice to say I snatched Romancing Olive up as uickly as possible I need to catch up with my 2015 Historical Romance reading goal and this is the perfect way to get me out of my historical romance slump THE NARRATION Even though I was excited about starting this book once I officially began Romancing Olive I expected to not enjoy it nearly as much as I thought I would I wasn’t a huge fan of the idea of just one voice narrating the entire book You have to realize I started my audio journey with a book that seemed to have a voice for each character I was pretty disappointed to discover a woman would be narrating the guy voices As the novel progressed however I grew to enjoy her narrating style She was far from robotic and seemed to really get into the novel I laughed along with her and even teared up in certain parts Lee Ann turned out to be a great asset to Romancing Olive and I can’t wait to listen to books narrated by her D THE STORY Not only was I leery of the new narration style I wasn’t a huge fan of Olive in the early chapters and didn’t know if I were going to be able to finish this oneWhen Olive arrives in Spencer Ohio it is a far cry from her life in Philadelphia It’s small and run down and not in the least concerned about the kind of propriety that is pretty much the focal point of life in the city She comes off a bit snooty and judgmental at the beginning – and the worst kind of know it all without any life experience I was about ready to throw in the towel until Olive finally realizes how wrong she had been about her younger brother all those years I started to see Olive in a new light when her world is rocked on its axis but instead of giving into hysterics she straightens her shoulders and moves on with her life determined to give her new charges a better home filled with all the love and guidance they never knew with her gambling addicted brother and his prostitute wife I realized how strong Olive is and so did the other characters in Romancing OliveI grew to love all the main characters; Olive and her two new charges Mary and John Jacob the stubborn but loyal widower whom took them in and buried their parents and Jacob’s three children Each and every character had their own flaws but showed substantial growth by the end of the novel I had times of irritation with all of them but couldn't help but grow fond of them all as the book progressedI surprised myself by how much I enjoyed the slow progressing romance in Romancing Olive I don’t usually find myself reading slow paced romances these days and got a kick out of the different speed of this book I also liked that the heroine in this book is older than the usual romance heroine She’s referred to as an “aging spinster” a few times which irked me but seeing as in the time period 35 was older than it is now I let it goHistorical fiction fans of every genre should give this story a try – I believe it could appeal to anybody who enjoys a historical novel every once in a while romance fan or not since it’s pretty clean when it comes to romance I enjoyed Romancing Olive so much I raced to beg another audiobook romance from the author I can’t wait to dive in You made it to the end If you enjoyed my review please consider giving it a thumbs up on HERE Thank you for all that you do ❤This review was originally posted on One Curvy Blogger

ebook ´ Romancing Olive è Holly Bush

In 1891 spinster librarian Olive Wilkins is shocked to learn of her brother’s violent death at a saloon gaming table and her sister in law’s subseuent murder traveling far from her staid life to rescue her niece and nephew now orphans She arrives to find the circumstances of her brother’s life deplorable and her long held Cute and sweet Olive's character changes too much for me In the beginning she comes across as competent smart and able As the book progresses I lost interest in her she becomes too Mary Sue Events occurred too uickly or are too implausible In about 2 days time she cleans cooks drives a wagon shops and throws money around mothers sews clothes for 4 children need I go on? Later she plans a house contracts it and has it finished in no time sounds like the late 20th century to me not the 19th The book is ok 2 starsJust needed to add that the book needs an editor misspelled words words not written correctly and breaks in words from formatting

Holly Bush è Romancing Olive mobi

Romancing OliveRen of his own and a man still in pain from the recent loss of his wife Real danger threatens Olive and Mary and John while Jacob and his own brood battle the day to day struggles for survival Will Olive and Jacob find the strength to fight their battles alone or together? Will love conuer the bitterness of loss and broken dream I wasn’t certain that I would like this story when it began but within a couple of lines I was hooked It was in 1890 and I was really curious to see what would happen to this prim proper and straitlaced thirty something spinster calming walking into a sheriff’s office in a small farming town in Ohio Having been informed that her niece and nephew had been orphaned she had come to find them and return to Philadelphia with them The sheriff offered to take her to where they were staying and she climbed into his wagon and left for an adventure of a lifetimeThings were not what she was used to and it all came as a shock to her However she was determined to manage somehow Being unable to take the children back right away and being accustomed to having a maid and cook it was fun watching as she attempted to adapt to the workload on a farm She was a strong willed and determined woman and began to learn the ins and outs of this rough life I really enjoyed reading about how she managed the house the children and of course the handsome young rancher This really isn’t a typical romance It has a lot to it than that I was fascinated watching the people change not just her but the children the rancher and the people she encountered I would recommend this to anyone looking for a really good story about the early west I liked it very much
