Aelissm Davis figured she would eventually return home to Northstar, Montana, but not like this - desperate for the tranquility of the secluded valley and plagued by memories of her dead boyfriend and the advances of an obsessive former friend. Just when she begins to relax, a call from her old friend makes it clear he wasn't deterred, and she calls her overprotective uncle for advice. Things become even more tangled when he sends Patrick O'Neil "on vacation" to keep an eye on her. Aelissm is pretty sure her uncle is playing matchmaker again, but despite her annoyance, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to Pat. He is a haunted man with a kind smile and sad eyes, and he may just be the best thing to ever happen to her…if she can convince him to stay.

If you like wounded heroes on a path to healing, you'll enjoy this clean, but sensuous, romance. It isn't a Christian novel but Pat and Aelissm might inspire others to get out of the victim trap and heal. I think the narrator hurt this book. I'll give Suzie O'Connell another try but not with this Reader. She does have a nice voice quality but her timing and lack of different voices hurt the book. The hero often sounded more than slow witted.
The story may have been enjoyable if not narrated so poorly. The narrator would do well with children's books, but was unable to hold your attention on this story. I suggest if you want to enjoy this book buy it and read it yourself.
I can not give a good rating on the story because the narrator was so bad that I kept getting bored and distracted.
Good story , trite narrative.Narration style for children & often slurred, with some unforgiveavle mispronunciations
I was unable to differentiate among characters. they all sounded the sme, do I never knew who was talking. Also, there were many instances where I could not determine when a chapter ended and a new one began.
I bought this book especially because it had the narration, but could not even make it past the first chapter. It might be a great book to read, but not to listen to.
First, I have listened to hundreds of audiobooks and this is the worst narration I have ever heard. Narrator sounded drunk as she slurred through words and never considered punctuation. Maybe the book would have been better if the listener could have understood the narration. So grateful to be done with it. Another freebie from Bookbub and I see why. Don't waste your money on this one.
I don't read the romance genre very often, but the plot line and the story location got my attention. I listened to the story on my way to and from work everyday. The narration was very good. She allowed me to disappear into the story without distraction.
I suppose that would have to be Alysem (spell?) Davis. She just seemed like a real person.
I think her reading of the story is very clear. I liked the inflection she used in different parts of the story. Her voice is calm and practiced.
I had my driveway moments!
Always looking for a new author with continuing series. The story line here is great and the author has chosen a wonderful narrator (Tina Bjorklund) to keep the story interesting with her smooth, calm style. Can't wait for the next one!
