Looking at this short first installment of this three part trilogy, I would say that is has possibilities. There were stop-gaps. There were stilted areas. There were highlight areas.
Narration. Sharon Lacey pulled off the female characters with effective efficiency, but the male counterparts were not so convincing. After getting past the audio sound that was like being in a tunnel the ebb and flow of the narration was just that. I did not feel any more connected to the story than if I had read it myself.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Millenia Black . The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
What happens when the man you love falls in love with someone else?
Mayfair Island, Florida: Grief-stricken after the sudden loss of her beloved grandmother, who was an enduring but reclusive Hollywood icon, young Priscilla Bauer finds herself adrift and looking to find solace in the arms of her vast inheritance when she meets the kind and considerate corporate brand designer Michael Frost - a drop-dead gorgeous beacon of light in her all-too-dark night.
Falling hard and falling fast, Priscilla has no idea she's stepped into dangerous territory...because someone else has already branded Michael Frost her very own - and she has no intention of ever letting him go.
Passions are high, but bitter vengeance gets even higher!
With Raindrops on Roses, the captivating Favorite Things novella trilogy takes flight!

To Love a Love Triangle:Sharpen Those Edges!Millenia Black
When the idea for the Favorite Things Trilogy popped into my head, I honestly had no clue it would end up being about a dramatic love triangle. I'd just thought that an international chain of high-end boutique hotels bearing the names of "a few of my favorite things" was a pretty neat idea! And since Twilighty love triangles had long since saturated the literary landscape, it wasn't the first thing that came to mind when I began fleshing out the plot. When the three lead characters did finally come to the fore, it was clear to me that their staging would be different. How so? Well, for starters, the guy in the middle wouldn't be torn between the two gals...that's been done. And done. And done again. So I was inspired to explore the less worn angles—Millenia Black style!
