This town is coming back to life!
People have started moving to Buffalo Valley, North Dakota - people like Lindsay Snyder, who came as a teacher and stayed, marrying local farmer Gage Sinclair. And now Lindsay's best friend, Maddy Washburn, has decided to pull up stakes and join her in Buffalo Valley, hoping for the same kind of satisfaction. And the same kind of love.
Jeb McKenna is a rancher, a solitary man who's learned to endure. Maddy - unafraid and openhearted - is drawn to Jeb, but he rejects her overtures. Until one of North Dakota's deadly storms throws them together...
Those few days and nights bring unexpected consequences for Maddy and Jeb. Consequences that, one way or another, affect everyone in Buffalo Valley.

The story is SO predictable it's laughable.
She exaggerated the sappiness of the story to the point of parody. And she was TERRIBLE when doing men's voices.
I could barely slog though this, but it was all I had on a long trip.
I don't see well at all and it is the best option for me.
It is a series and they are always my favorite. I can't wait till the next in the series comes out.
Several, and they are always when the people solve their issues.
What I dislike is when the characters drag out their issues too long. It is entertaining to see them work out their issues and it makes you happy,but if they are too stubborn and it carries out for a year, I get angry at the character.
After listening to the second in The Dakota Series, I'm still a fan of the story-line and Debbie Macomber. So much so that I'm moving on to the 3rd in the series. However, my opinion is changing about Carly Robins. I enjoyed her talents in the first novel but after listening to the second one, I realized that there was one aspect of her skills that could stand improvement. All of her male voices are exactly the same. There is absolutely no distinction in male characters. Once I realized that, it became somewhat irritating. Not so much that I would stop listening but that might even change after this 3rd novel that I'm about to download. That factor may not bother anyone else and the story is certainly well worth the credit.
Just a note...this is one of those series that definitely should be read in order.
I loved it from beginning to end. I am a huge Debbie Macomber fan. I love Washington state and so her books make me feel like I'm near home. as for this book, I love the small town and the teamwork they portray. great story!!
