I enjoyed this SEP book. Anna Fields as the narrator is always good. I really felt for the main character in this book and I was rooting for her all the way. Her little boy was a sweetheart too.
I really enjoy the Chicago Stars books by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. This book is not a classical Chicago Stars book but similar characters in familiar places. I listen to these in car and sometimes when i get home I sit in the driveway a little longer to hear more of the story. I like how she weaves the characters story lines together. Although not terribly deep, they are so enjoyable.
I love Suzanne Elizabeth Phillips and her brand of humor. What makes this audiobook special is the narrator. She's able to infuse so much personality to each character in a very believable way. From our gruff hero to the little boy, they come off so much better on audio!
I absolutely loved this book, which so far is my favorite from Susan Elizabeth Philips. It was so heartwarming. I laughed and cried. The narrator is the same for most of SEP's audio books, and she is wonderful. I highly recommend it.
I'm a big SEP fan and an Anna Fields fan so this wasn't a big risk. I read this book a few years ago and remembered it was a good story. I decided that I wanted to 'listen' to it this time. And...I loved it all over again. It's a good story about two broken people who are functioning on their own but get healed together. It's uplifting. Oh...and does anyone do the secondary plot quite like SEP. I loved Ethan and his romance too. Strong men who love kids and their wives. It's irresistible!
I believe many will find at one time or another they have been in similar situations as the characters within this book. It won't disappoint! With sassy characters living in a small town and falling in love with one of the Bonner men...makes this book hard to put down. You will laugh, cry, and beg for more.
I resisted this book because the summary didn't sound interesting enough. I needed a book for a road trip and decided to go for it, and I'm glad I did. Cal Bonner is one of my favorite SEP characters and I enjoyed getting to know his brothers. The only negative would be the voice of five year old Edward. I love Anna Fields and miss her voice, but she can't do kids, they end up sounding like whining babies.
I've only listened to 4 of her books and when I started this one I fully expected to have laugh out loud chuckles, but all I got was one bad thing after another happening to Rachel. I have about less than 2 hours left of the book to go and I'm guessing it will all turn out for the best, but I'm tired of it. Just when you think things can't get worse one more bad thing happens. Oh, I'll suffer thru the rest just to see how she can turn Gabe Bonner into a worthy Bonner brother. The way he treats her son ... nah, I don't even think at the end of the book I'm going to like Gabe Bonner. This is the most depressing book. SEP, how could you?
