The Shop on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I’m sad, I didn’t like this one. I really enjoy Debbie Macomber’s books, other fans may enjoyed it, but this one just didn’t work for me.

I listened via audiobook, narrated by Linda Edmond, a pleasant voice overall, however with lots of extra long pauses in between sentences, which was ok, probably great for most people, but for me, faster speeds were better, but then made the rest of the sentences unbalanced and too fast. Became a bit of reading monotony over time. I liked her voice better when she was more animated, made for less lower register and therefore less low-effort tone and less vocal fry.

The Story
I don’t know. Was more of a survival story than anything and an overly detailed one at that. Which was okay, except it was boring. Just droned on and on and I hate having to say that about a survival story, but all the tension was built around that from the get go without any common relatability factor or charm or connectivity that I wanted in order to bring myself into the plot, especially because I was so drawn to the cover. I wanted an atmosphere that was built upon the hype of a cute love story, wandering around a village, an adorable shoppe, community. I couldn’t keep my attention on it so I DNF’d at some point, losing interest pretty early on.

The Writing
Slow and overly detailed. Just lost interest early on and didn’t see how reading on would recapture my attention.

Oh well, learning my tastes, learning what I like and don’t like and this one just wasn’t for me.
