When her sisters enroll her in a survivor training camp, Izzy is not happy. Nick, her instructor, is determined that she won't be left in the dark - in more ways than one. But if he tells her the terrible truth behind why he's helping her, he'll never see her again. Unless they're both willing to take the biggest risk of all.

This is the best book in the Lone Star Sisters series by far. I didn't really care for Izzy's character in the two previous books, but this book give you a bit more insight about her. She is also the only sister to really stand up to their horrible father, which was well worth the wait! Nick's character had lots of issues but was still likable. And more light was shed on Garth's character, which was quite interesting. I can SO see a romance brewing between him and the deputy, which I hope will be explored in the final book. The first two books were a bit flat to me, but this one is a lot better. Enjoy!
This is the third book in the series and out of the three I would say it came in second. The first book was the best. Okay for a simple summer romance, narrator is not my favorite.
Yes. The whole series is worth listening to again.
When Izzy finds out the truth about Nick.
It's as good as the other's
Not one big emotional moment, no. There are a many good moments that grab the listeners/readers attention though. One's with Jed in particular. Nick and Izzy battling with each other as they fall in love.
This book has two strong characters coming together during a lot of turmoil in Izzy's life. it makes for a good listen.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
Izzy has always been the daredevil in the family, the tomboy if you will. She is injured in an oil rig blowup and loses most of her sight, she becomes withdrawn. Everyone believes it is their half brother who blew up the rig. Her concerned sisters enroll her is a special camp to help her deal with her disability. The obstacles in her path brings out her competitive nature.
A thoroughly enjoyable story watching Izzy overcome her fear, and deal with Nick, who has ghosts of his own. These two broken souls come together and heal each other.
Susan Mallery is an excellent author with a knack for creating enchanting funny, caring characters. This series needs to be read in order; the storyline developes as the series continues deeper with each story.
My husband and I enjoyed listening too the full series together on a long road trip.
This is one of those cases where a bad narrator was paired with a good story. The narrator speaks too slowly and her attempts at doing different voices for the characters fail miserably. I recommend the story if you can handle the poor narration.
