In the New York Times bestselling novel On Dublin Street, Joss and Braden fought for their happily ever after. Now, in a romantic new novella, they'll discover what comes after the happy ending…

Braden Carmichael never imagined he'd fall as hard and as fast as he did for Jocelyn Butler. He also could not have anticipated how difficult it would be to convince her to give in to love. But now that he has her, he's never letting go. He's got it all planned - the passionate proposal, the dream wedding, the sexy Hawaiian honeymoon - even the perfect family they'll start.

    "AND SO IT BEGINS FOR THE CARMICHAELS"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Castle Hill to be better than the print version?

    no, the same.


    What other book might you compare Castle Hill to and why?

    Dublin Street of course since it stated there


    Which character – as performed by Paula Costello – was your favorite?

    Braden is all sexy in this one as well.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    And so it begins....


    Any additional comments?

    What a breath of fresh air. I love it. This is one of my favorite stories of how true love comes from out of no where.. These two fell in love and fought to hold on to it. This novel is a short story of the engagement, wedding and honeymoon.. It's pure delight. But,, we get a surprise soon as they return home. And Braden is taken back by Joss's reaction. So do yourself a great favor, read, listen or wait if you want, but get this.. Its's cute and you completely understand how small things can be seen differently is a man and women's eyes.. It'a a great bookl

    "Joss & Braden #LOVEMESOMEJ&B!"

    On Dublin Street was my introduction to Samantha Young and the crew of Americans and Scots that made me want to pack my bags and head to Edinburgh! Although I'm 5 books deep in this series, I adore Joss & Braden, so it didn't matter to me that I was listening completely out of sequence!

    Joss and Braden's novella was exactly what I expected--funny, romantic, hot & sexy, and the 'more' that you longed for at the end of Dublin St. I'd purchase this one outright as opposed to a credit, but any of the books within the series are definitely credit worthy.

    "GREAT GREAT GREAT"

    Even though this is a short story, if you have followed Samantha Young's series this is a MUST. You get a glimpse of the plot in a previous story but this gives you the inside scoop. With all the ups, downs and angst. Paula Costello is so perfect for Joss and Braden. She brought Joss to life no question.

    I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.

    "Great Story"
    Where does Castle Hill rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of my preferred series. Probably top 3. I like all of the characters and I like the transformation of Joss, even though she finds it difficult.


    Have you listened to any of Paula Costello’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't but she does a great job.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series of books. Joss and Braden aren't my favorite couple, but I enjoyed their story so much that I wanted to continue listening. I love the families and how open and accepting they are of their friends. So glad Joss got her happen ending even though she didn't think she would.

    "Great follow up to On Dublin Street"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a great little follow up to Joss and Bradens story. I loved it all. I personally read it as book #4 in the series and I would recommend that to everyone...it just fits there perfectly. I was sad this was short, but I was ever so happy I had book #5 in the series, Before Jamaica Lane, to start right after I finished this. I bought this one...It was expensive for a novella...but not one I would miss just because of that......I bought it vs. using a credit as there are so many more longer books out there that cost more so I saved my credit for something else. I recommend this to anyone who has started this series!
