Just shy of her thirtieth birthday, Haley Carston returns to Redbud Trails, Oklahoma, to care for her dying aunt. She thinks she's ready for this homecoming. She's spent years escaping her perpetual shyness and being Katie Michaels' tag-along friend, but being back in her hometown brings back a lot of old memories, especially when she is faced with the cowboy she never forgot Katie's older brother, Maddox.
Twelve years ago, Maddox Michaels was supposed to be somebody. He had everything. A football scholarship. A Division I team scouting him. Maybe even a chance at the pros. Now, he's a burned-out cowboy working day and night to stay ahead of his brother's medical bills and keep their family farm from going bankrupt. And trying to be a father-figure for his niece, Olivia.
When Haley and Olivia start spending time together, Maddox can't help remembering those dreams that died alongside his sister. Will being with Haley open his heart to new dreams?

Update the audio book to include the epilogue (please).
The Porter Family series by Becky Wade might be comparable.
First time for this narrator
yes. I very much enjoy stories about honorable characters with integrity. Wish there were more (lots more).
This novella was pleasantly free from extended angst. Miscommunication was brief and overcome realistically.
The story line I just wish it was longer.
How they would do anything for this child so her dreams could come true
Very easy to listen to
So many, I love it
