New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown returns with a heartbreakingly hilarious novel about three women who had nothing in common, except their husband.
Leaving one widow behind is unfortunate. Leaving three widows behind is just plain despicable. Oil heiress Kate Steele knew her not-so-dearly departed husband was a con man, but she's shocked that Conrad racked up two more wives without divorcing her first. The only remnant of their miserable marriage she plans to keep is their lakeside cabin in Bootleg, Texas. Unfortunately, she's not the only woman with that idea.
Fiery, strong-willed Jamie wishes Conrad were still alive - so she could kill the scoundrel herself. But for their daughter's sake, she needs that property. As does Amanda - twenty-eight, pregnant, and still weeping over the loss of her true love. On a broiling July day, all three arrive in Bootleg...with a dogged detective right behind who's convinced that at least one of them conspired to commit murder. One momentous summer filled with revelations, quirky neighbors, and barefoot evenings on the porch offers three women the chance to make the journey from enemies to friends, and claim a bright, new beginning.

...still a good listen. Characters are sometimes unbelievable, rather contrived, but it's a good ending. Narrator good.
The book was poorly written, no character development, poor story line, campy and predictable.
The reader often sounded like a computer generated voice and at times used a voice e for the wrong character. Painful to listen too
This was a very enjoyable story. It was well read and suspenseful. The narration was excellent and allowed the the mind to picture it as the story progressed.
This book was ruined by the narrator! I will never purchase another audiobook if she is performing it. Another of Ms. Brown's books, Lullaby Sky, was narrated by Brittany Pressley who is fantastic!
Ms. Brown (or the publisher) please don't do this to your readers/listeners!!!
I'm bereft now that barefoot summer has past and I will no longer spend time with these vivid characters through their deepest sorrows and journey to find themselves. Spectacular story coupled with a perfect performance. Will have to read again right now!
