    Michelle Sanderson may appear to be a strong, independent woman, but on the inside, she’s still the wounded girl who fled home years ago. A young army vet, Michelle returns to the quaint Blackberry Island Inn to claim her inheritance and recover from the perils of war. Instead, she finds the owner’s suite occupied by the last person she wants to see. Carly Williams and Michelle were once inseparable, until a shocking betrayal destroyed their friendship. And now Carly is implicated in the financial disaster lurking behind the inn’s cheerful veneer.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Usually, I am quickly involved in the tale Susan Mallery spins. However, with this particular audiobook it took me a while, The narrator was juvenile in her performance of this book and that detracted from my enjoyment. One of the few times I wish I had read the book instead of listened to it. Too bad. I hope the narrator for the next book in the series is better.

    Angel Whittaker earned his scars the hard way, but the scars that can't be seen are the ones that haunt him the most. Since he moved to Fool's Gold, California, he's cobbled together a life for himself as a bodyguard trainer. If he's not exactly happy, at least his heart is safe.

    Amazon Customer says: "Another happy ending."
    "The lisp is very distracting."

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I found the narrator's lisp very distracting, especially when she attempted the lower male voices.


    Any additional comments?

    I guess I will have to stick to the readable version of this story.
