This is my second time listening to Baby, Don't Go. I really love this story. Marcus is so stubborn and determined to keep his promise. Alicia is really screwed up in the head but doesn't think anything's wrong with that as she is driven to expose the truth about the Armstrong brother's attempt to resurrect their hometown of Sweetness Georgia.
Alicia Randall a Feminist column writer wants to know why 100 single women would up and leave their lives to move to a town that barely has hot water. She is determined to find out what sinister things are going on and expose the town to be a fraud.
This story really gets to me because not everything that seems too good to be true falls in that category. Marcus' character really makes my heart hurt. Too many people take on more than they should because they are trying to be responsible but not letting yourself live while trying to do the right thing is wrong.Their are many life lessons in this story and you just hope that Alicia will stop being a pain in the A**, and Marcus will ask for help.
I love the Narrator for this series. It is really important to read them in order so you understand the evolution of the characters and even though some of the background is repeated it is only repeated in the perspective of the current main character. Knowing how each Armstrong brother deals with restoring life to Sweetness. I would move to Sweetness myself liking the quiet and beautiful surroundings (as I picture them to be). I will definitely read this series again... Also, their are 2 novellas that go along with this series:
Novella: Baby, I'm Yours
Book 1: Baby, Drive South
Book 2: Baby, Come home
Book 3: "This book"
Novella: Baby, Hold On
I am hoping for additional books in this series since their are a lot of characters.
Yes I would listen again. This story was great. I didn't realize this book was a part of a series although the books are individual you learn about some of the other characters that are referenced and how they got to their "love".
At first I started listening and thought "oh my, audible screwed up this isn't the book I downloaded. It doesn't match the description at all." The book starts off strange (in a good way) and then turns out really awesome. I love how sometimes you have to go "home" to find yourself. The story (other than a few instances) seems very real, like this could happen to your best friend.
Nicole Poole made me feel what Adele was going through and what she went through in the beginning. She made my heart break and beat out of my chest with anticipation.
Yes this book was one I wanted to listen to all in one sitting...you want to know how it is going to work itself out and what is in store for everyone.
I would definitely listen to the story again. I actually read the book before I bought the audible version. I love the story.
I compared this book to Under the Boardwalk the first book in the series...unfortunately that book is not yet available in audio yet, but I was curious to see how the story would continue and would love it as much as the first one.
Manly, smooth, and slightly British.
Yes their were quite a few....but I am not going to share them since it might spoil the moments for someone else.
I wish their was a different reader because she made Zoe seem so much like a guy and not in a good way. She made her strong but she sounded like a dude. (Please excuse the reference) I also felt like I was getting whiplash between Ryan having a Boston accent and sounding British. When I read the book the voices in my head (lol) sounded a lot more "real". It is still an enjoyable listen and well worth it.
I love Gracie and Riley. Both characters are so relatable. Getting over the past is important, put it in it's place and move forward.
The cakes. O M G!! I just want to eat the cakes.
Yes I did want to know what happend. I wanted those who were doing wrong to get caught.
Healing is so important and just because you may have done some questionable things in your past doesn't mean that is who you are today. All a lesson people need to learn. We need to forgive ourselves for making those mistakes and use what we have done to make us better people and not let it define each of us.
Absolutely!! All the Fool's Gold books make you miss the characters. When you want to reconnect with them all you have to do is pick up the book and read it again. Or listen in this case.
I don't think their was a moment. I think the idea that they were both running from the perceptions of themselves was memorable. Lessons learned while enjoying the story are the best kind to learn.
I love Tanya Eby. She is my friend who tells me what's going on. I have read many books she has read and she always makes them enjoyable.
This book is similar to Pia's story. There were a few parallel's but it was still an interesting story for Charlie.
Yes I have listened 3 times already. Pia is awesome and such a great person and Raoul is such a welcome character. It is nice to see what happens to himself since he is from the Sweet series. I will read again.
When he offers to be her "buddy". It shows character and your heart squeezes.
Yes. She is consistently awesome.
Yes. When she agrees to "do it". You will understand after you listen. I don't want any spoiler alerts.
I cant get enough. These books have brought me into this genre. I didn't use to read stuff like this. Between these and a couple other authors I have gotten hooked.
Yes, I have recommended and now she has started the series. The visuals and the history behind the story of the characters draws you in.
Well since this book came first I don't know but after u have read all of the series books it is like Summer Brides (NOVELLA) and Only His. Thyself have a similar story having an issue with someone from there past and making things right.
When Ethan sees Liz for the first time after so long.
Yes, when Ethan didn't give up and recognizes he contributed to the problem. That he is bnot just the victim.
Read Summer Brides after this one. Unfortunately it isn't an audiobook. You wont regret it though.
The introduction to the town the people and the need to get involved. I wish I lived there.
That the character's got to "belong". That what u see isn't always what you get.
Fool's Gold - I want to move there. I want to be one of them.
This is one of my absolutes favorite audiobooks. I love the characters and this story touched me.
I love that Tucker and Nevada have a history that is perfect but they manage to be "real " about being adults.
She is a great reader. I love her being the voice of the series. It would suck if she didn't read all the books. Some readers ruin books hut not Tanya.
Tucker-because I imagine him being great at conversation and easy on the eyes.
Love this series. Wish their were more and I didn't have to wait so long between books. I have to re-listen because I get through the books so fast. I have read this book 3 times so far.
It is a sweet story about finding a place to fit in and belong while moving on from the past. I love the introduction of the Stryker family.
All of the Fool's Gold series books have the same recipe. It just makes you wonder how and when it will gt screwdriver up then ultimately work out.
I love her as the voice of the series. It makes it seem like it is one long story.
Goat girl and the Savy Cowboy. Awesome
