Publisher's Summary

In the idyllic small town of Tucker, Vermont, life flows at a rhythmic pace for pediatrician Paige Pfeiffer. But when Mara O'Neill, her best friend and medical partner, inexplicably kills herself, Paige's comfortable world is suddenly shattered. Temporarily caring for Mara's newly adopted baby daughter while she comes to grips with her grief, Paige clings to the hope that, in time, her orderly life will return.

What she hadn't counted on were the unforeseen joys that often come with change, including the attentions of Noah Perrine, acting head of the private school where Paige coaches girls' athletics. Noah fills Paige's life with hope, and offers her things she never thought she wanted. Paige never expected to find the meaning of life in the death of a friend.

    Story
    "Parent guide! (not romance)"

    This book may be a great parent guide and if you have young or teenage children you may find it useful, otherwise if you are looking for a romantic read look elsewhere! After several tries I was unable to reach mid-way and had to call it quits.

    Story
    "Not one of her best.."

    I have enjoyed the Barbara Delinsky books I have read but this one was so slow, so predictable. From the start the plot was thin and easy to anticipate what was going to happen. It left little to the imagination or anticipation as the book went along.

    As for the reader, the delivery was awkward with very long, too long, pauses. Also, the reader had a very limited range of voices for the characters which made the book read more difficult to enjoy. Overall I just finished listening to be done with the book as the ending was totally predictable.

    Could I recommend this book/reader? No on both counts.

    "Suddenly"

    Overall the story was very good. The narrator's imitation of the leading man's voice was off putting to me and detracted from my enjoyment of the book.
