Publisher's Summary

A country girl committed to nature. A city guy with his eye on the bottom line. A battle of wills...a battle for balance And a love that can tip the scales

Rick Chapman is climbing to the top rung of his father's corporate ladder. Fulfilling Chapman Financial's contract at Cypress Corners, Florida will finally prove his value to the company. And to his father. But one endangered weed, and the pretty plant girl trying to save it, could really screw up his plans.

Harmony Brooks loves her job as a plant conservationist at Cypress Corners, and the money she earns allows her to make up for a former boyfriend's betrayal. He not only stole her parents' money, he stole her heart. And that's something she won't ever risk again. But opposites attract, not that she or Rick ever expected to fall in love. Can Harmony prove to Rick that he's worth so much more than his father's approval? Or is Rick so blind he can't see that loving Harmony is worth losing what he's wanted for so long?

    A charming and thought provoking story.. I like it and am glad I listened to it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that she felt so strongly about her job and that she wasn't going to let her feelings for Rick influence her.


    Which character – as performed by Wendy Rich Stetson – was your favorite?

    I thought she did a wonderful job with all the charactors

    "Great escape on a wintry day"

    A charming and thought provoking story that takes place in an idyllic setting. The narrator Wendy Rich Stetson did a good job, her voice is clear and she was able to differentiate the cast of characters very well. I enjoyed the tone of her voice and always knew which character was speaking. I was very drawn into the story, it has a positive message woven into a passionate love story.

    Story
    "See how opposites do attract"
    Would you listen to Finding Harmony again? Why?

    I love a great story when opposite personalities find themselves falling in love. Rick Chapman is pure city. While Harmony Brooks is pure country. I love the interaction between these two.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite part in the book is when Rick realizes he will never please his father, and tells him to keep his job!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The after effects of Harmony's meeting with Rick's father. I am not going to give any spoilers, but Rick needs to ask before he jumps to conclusions.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an amazing story of two people falling in love. The author and narrator really brings out the emotions in the writing and in the telling. I need to thank Wendy Stetson with the gift copy of this audio book for my honest opinion. I really enjoyed listening to this book. Kudos to the author JoMarie DeGioia and the narrator Wendy Stetson. Great job!!! I look forward to reading/listening to future books by these two in the future.

    Harmony and Rick have a lot to overcome before either of them can find the happiness they both deserve. This was a fun and light story. The narration really brought it to life.

    Story
    "The Developer And The Conservationist?"
    If you could sum up Finding Harmony in three words, what would they be?

    EcoFriendly Chicklit Romance


    What other book might you compare Finding Harmony to and why?

    I do not compare books to each other. Each book series is its own entity.


    Which character – as performed by Wendy Rich Stetson – was your favorite?

    I loved Harmony! She was so conflicted and yet she let herself hope :) Wendy's performance showcased her ever shifting emotions as well as her resolve to not be the too trusting girl she used to be. She was strong and yet hopeful as well as true to herself.


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

    Nature Meets Progress To Foster Love


    Any additional comments?

    This series must be listened to (or read) in order. This is the first book. I can't wait to listen to Taming Jake!



    Harmony is a conservationist who works for Cypress Corners to make sure no nature is harmed by new development. It is her job to keep the rare plants safe from developers who would likely just destroy them to meet their almighty deadlines and keep their high profits flowing. Finding the rare buckwheat has been proof that she deserves her job. Now she just has to convince the handsome developer Rick he has to listen to her. Will they learn to work together? Or will they spend all their time fighting over what is more important, nature or the bottom line? Can she make him see reason? Why does he spark her interest when noone else has since college? Will she ever get over the past?


    Rick has been working his whole life to gain his father's approval. He needs to keep his promise to his dead mother. Becoming heir apparent and the second in command at his father's empire is all that matters. He can't fail his mother's memory or his two siblings. No matter the price. He has no time for romance and he doesn't want it anyway! He will be happy when he FINALLY has his rightful place in the company. Doesn't he? Why is he so drawn to the one woman who can destroy his dreams? Could he be interested in more than a quick distraction?


    ***This chicklit romance series is suitable for adult readers who enjoy hopeful stories with plenty of steam and a dash of ecofriendly morals to go with the requisite HEA :)

    "Great Book!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book; this is the first book in The Cypress Corners series written by JoMarie DeGioia and narrated by Wendy Rich Stetson. Rick Chapman is climbing to the top of his father’s corporate ladder. He is hoping that by fulfilling Chapman financial’s contract at Cypress Corners, Florida he will finally prove his value to his father and company. Harmony Brooks loves her job as a plant conservationist at Cypress Corners. Rick and Harmony must learn to work together to get what they both want.

    The narrator Wendy Rich Stetson, did a wonderful job, and was very easy to listen too. She did a great job with the different characters and their voices.

    This book has a great story; if you are looking for a great romance, then you need to get this book. I am looking forward to the next book by this author. Once I started listening to this book, I didn’t want to stop until the end.

    A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

    Story
    "Sweet and Hot"
    Would you listen to Finding Harmony again? Why?

    I've enjoyed listening to Finding Harmony very much but I am already on the second one of the series and I am enjoying it very much too.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Harmony and Rick are both different and all the same together. Their story is sweet, but passionate enough with a wonderful ending.


    Have you listened to any of Wendy Rich Stetson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, and her performances are exceptionally perfect! This one is also very good and I love the southern accent and the different voices she puts on to the characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The moon, the lake, and everything around them was both romantic and hot. (this was the first book in the Cypress Corners series, wait till you listen to the second one.....)


    Any additional comments?

    I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts opinions and ratings are my own. I was under no obligation to post a review or give positive feedback.
    Thank you very much Wendy Rich Stetson and JoMarie DeGioia for this book.
