One in a million - that's what widow Stephanie Wynne figured her chances were of finding a man who could help her raise her kids instead of acting like one himself. After experiencing that with her late husband, she was happy to finally be in control of her own life. Sure, it could get a little lonely, but there were ways around that….
FBI negotiator Nash Harmon was trained to be cool and detached in every situation. But when he came to Stephanie's B&B, there was something about her lively family that drew him in, and for the first time in his life he understood why people had ties.
Only Stephanie didn't want ties…at least, not to him. It would be his toughest negotiation, the odds were against him, but somehow Nash would convince her that she had, indeed, found the one.

I love Susan Mallery books but not this one. Maybe the story would have been better if the narrator wasn't so bad. The voices she tried to use for the kids in the story where just ridiculous. She even tried to do a couple of english accents (I think) but they were so bad it was hard to tell. The download was broken into 2 parts and Susan's book is only part 1 of the download. For this, I was thankful. I was so happy not to have to hear the narrator's voice I was glad it was over. The second half the story by Tanya Michaels was just as bad but this time it wasn't the narrator it was the story.Save your credits and pass on this double book.
I sort of liked the story because of the family complexity, but it was all so predictable. I couldn't get past the narrator. She ruined it all completely. Don't let her read your books, Susan.
The book was OK, but the narrator ruined it. I couldn't wait for it to be over. Her voices for the kids was like nails on a blackboard, and the one she used for Nash's boss was an insult to Long Islanders (I think that's what she was TRYING to sound like).
I always enjoy Susan Mallery's book, but the second book was hard to finish. The second book story was weak, and I didn't care at all for the narrator.
I would have given the first book a 4 Star but the second book really made me wish I didn't purchase. I will make sure I don't buy a double book again.
The narrator was awful. The whiny voice was one that little kids use when they don't get their way. The story of the Haynes brothers by Susan Mallery was great I just wish it had been narrated by someone who I could listen to more than once!
I love to read/listen to books on my commute to work. Each story makes the drive go by fast.
Between a score of 1 to 10, qo being the highest, this book scored a 7
Nash, because he sounded very handsome and sexy.
The story line is good, but the voice used by the narrator for all the male characters was very confusing at times, because the male voices sounded like the female voices. Also the characters voices for the little boys in this story all sounded like little girls. Could have done a better job.
No, I got through it because I wanted to know the ending, but narrator was a turn off.
Too monotone, I think I would have kept the book had the voice been more interesting to listen to.
I am a huge fan of romances and happy endings. I like books that take me away from everyday life and into the land of romance, some adventure and of course happy endings.
I read a lot of negative reviews on this book but I love Susan Mallery and decided to purchase it anyway. I am glad I did. The second book is not as good as the first but I found it easy to listen to and enjoyed.
Easy listening and good characters.
Not unless I loved the author
Likes to read and now to listen to many different area of books. Interested in more books. Open to suggestions.
I have not read the book but the audio was geat. I could place myself in the scenes.
I jst finished Holly and Mistletoe. I like the strong but gentle woman.
I liked her voice, it was exspessive and strong She did a great job of bringing the reader into the story with her.
It was and I did!!!!
