Southern town seeks single women. Though they're nothing but trouble...
The hardheaded Armstrong brothers are determined to rebuild their tornado-ravaged hometown in the Georgia mountains. They've got the means, they've got the manpower...what they need are women! So they place an ad in a Northern newspaper and wait for the ladies to arrive...Eldest brother Marcus Armstrong considers the estrogen influx an irritating distraction. He's running a town, not a dating service! Reporter Alicia Randall thinks the Armstrong brothers are running a scam and she intends to prove it-even if it means seducing oh-so-sexy Marcus in the process. Sizzling sex and a hot story? Win-win! At least it is, until she falls for the guy. Will love trump betrayal when the truth comes out?

I loved the first book but the 2nd and 3rd one I did not care for..Just beyond stubborn people its like you want to say c'mon already.
The plot line is great, the idea that three brothers are trying to recreate the town that they grew up in after an F5 tornado decimated it. The idea that they're trying to create a green community is also enjoyable. It's only that many of the characters are too formulaic, too stereotypical that led me farther and farther into disliking the book.
I did finish this. I was invested in the characters from the first two books, and even though they were good rather than great they were the kind of escapist reading I was looking for. This one had such a nasty female protagonist I couldn't see any way for her to become a lovable character. She does, of course, otherwise it wouldn't be proper escapism. But neither character can really stay true to his or herself and still make the happy ending, so people had to undergo unrealistic changes to get to the end. This is so unpleasant that I might not re-read the first and second books because I'll know that getting through the third book will be a chore and I like to read an entire series together. So much so that one of my favorite authors is working on book 35 or 40 or some such and when I know it's coming out I'll go back and re-read all the previous books in order to enjoy a seamless transition to the new book. If you haven't guessed, I don't recommend this book. Book 1 had some troubling transitions in it, but I cared enough about the characters to want to go on. Book 2, again, there were a lot of, why do they do that moments. The ones that you know that why they do it is to forward the plot but you just can't believe that people are that relationship stupid. Maybe they are, but there are limits to credulity, to the amount of change a character can exhibit in the space of a month without wondering if aliens took them over, and this third book crossed those limits. I wouldn't have liked it, but it would have worked better for me if the two central characters went with, you're a person unlike any I would ever want to spend time with and ridden off into their respective sunsets.
I am a Serial MultiTasker. Pretty much daily while I am at work I listen to Audiobooks. Some books I have listened to 3 to 5 times. Luv it.
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.
This was the last in the series about the town of Sweetness. Enjoyed all of them. Of course the end is somewhat predictable, but knew that ahead of time. Thought the narrator did a good job with the various characters. Provides a nice escape, which is why I listen to books in the first place.
This was book 3 in the series, Baby, Drive South and Baby, Come Home are the first two. This was a light, entertaining read. The town of Sweetness is still trying to rebuild after the tornado that hit ten years earlier. This is the oldest Armstrong brother, Marcus's story. He is the leader of the brothers and is the one working the hardest to get things done before their deadline. Alicia is a reporter from a feminist magazine in the town undercover trying to discover evidence of some sort of a scam or worse, women being taken advantage of. Alicia's character was pretty annoying at times but was pretty tolerable at the end once she realized that nothing other than a lot of people trying to rebuild their lives in one manner or another was going on.
