Definitely, this was a sequel to Falling Home which was also quite good. This was even better. I liked the character development, the love story, re-visiting my friends from Falling Home, the deep friendships, and character growth and development. I also fell in love with the small town and folks who made up it.
Karen White does not spend page after page on the love scenes, just enough to be interesting but not so much that you loose the story, Don't get me wrong I am a fan of Shades of Grey but many romance novels can repeat themselves so much that I want to fast forward to get back to the story.
Great job on narration
The audio was hard to put down. I listened to it in my car and then did chores in the house so I could keep listening, taking it from room to room with me.
I have listened to 3 Karen White books so far and am ready to order another.
I was happy to discover this sequel to Falling Home. I loved the characters in both stories & enjoyed finding out what happened to them after the first story. I'm also a sucker for happy endings. I have not read a Karen White book that wasn't awesome!
Love books, all kinds, all shapes, all formats! Audiobooks have made my daily commute so much less stressful! Major fan of Audible.
Once again Karen White delivered a good story, based in a clearly described Southern setting with characters that came to life.
I love Karen White books, but this one was not her best, The narrator's fake Southern accent was bad, and very distracting. The characters were not given enough depth, and it was hard to relate to any of the characters. Save your money.
Too much romance. Very disappointing after The Sound of Glass and A Long Time Gone.
Not really. I didn't even care much for the resolution of the little bit of mystery that ran through it.
I would not have purchased or read any of Karen White's other books if this had been the first one I chose.
I like historical, southern books - southern accents, antiques - The Ole' West, Ghost Towns, Victorian Era, Southern Humor!!
Great book! All of Karen White's books for far, I have enjoyed. There was some suspense, which was great, and the book kept going forward with new surprises. Narration was good, will listen again! Suzanne Paris is to hard on herself and had a troubled childhood. Things work themselves out - glad I purchased!
Yes, I have loved Karen Whites other books. I guess they can' all be winners
I loved Falling Home and part of the reason was the narration by Lyssa Browne. I was expecting the sequel to be read by her or at the very least someone as good as her. I was very unmoved and disappointed by Meredith Orlow. Her accent was unbelievable, and she sounded way too young for the main character.
I would recommend Falling Home, but skip the sequel. I found the story line to be uninteresting, unmoving and just plain boring. If you like cheesy romance novels maybe this is for you, if not don't bother.
