From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts comes a classic tale about finding the man of your dreams right under your nose.
Hester Wallace is proud of her independence. She needs only one man in her life - her nine-year-old son, Radley. But when Rad starts idolizing their neighbor Mitch Dempsey, Hester wonders if her son needs a male role model. Hester would do anything for her boy, but inviting Mitch into their lives is dangerous. She might start to rely on Mitch…or worse, fall in love with him.

I didn't enjoy this Nora Roberts as well as some of her other books. I could tell this was an older work, not just from references in the book, (VCR'S and arcades), but her writing wasn't what I've gotten used to. Cassandra Campbell was brilliant, however. I loved her inflections and could tell all the characters apart. I will be looking at others works from this talented narrator. Overall, an enjoyable listen.
Everything - the characters were annoying. The story was ridiculous. And the narrator was painful to listen to.
Yes - I find it's hit or miss with this author. When it's a hit it is a great experience. When it's a miss it's forgettable.
She is so breathy, whispery and sing-songy and the inflection at the end of each sentence are annoying. I've listened to many, many audios with her performing and I've yet to like one of them. She is my least favorite performer.
Oh, there are so many....
I have fallen in love all over again with reading. Only now I do it with my ears instead of my eyes!
I agree with another reviewer who stated that you can tell this is an older work of Nora Roberts. It's definitely not her best, but it was entertaining. In this day in age, it's pretty cliche, but if you know the author's other, more well rounded work, it's easy to forgive.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
yes, as you may miss the small inflections of humor if you are a very fast reader.
Our young man's great outlook on life, his understanding he doesn't have a dad, and most of all his love and respect for his single mother. It doesn't get better than this to give you a bright smile and a warm glow in your heart.
I have listened to her with MacLoud Andrews and they are good together. She has a good range, but needs to learn to deepen her male voices and she would be good to go. This is one of her short comings. Her young voices are good.
So many parts make you light up, Tasz's scenes, Kay's "lunch break" save the day, and most of all Radely's great zest for life!
Ms Roberts can really write great stories with young people in them. This is one of her many gifts in writing. No wonder people continue to buy her books, especially her original short romance classics. See her MacGregor series, yum
When Radley was asking Mitch about marrying his mom and being his dad.
Loved Loved Loved it!!!!!!!
