Drawn to an old trunk in the attic, Lara Calhoun is unable to resist finding out what treasure her late, beloved mother had kept hidden away for all these years. Her unexpected discovery soon turns her world upside down and makes her second-guess everything she's ever believed about her mother and about love. Will it lead her straight into Dave Lafferty's arms, or make her turn away from the love of a lifetime?

I would say no. I could have been enjoying my time better elsewhere. While the narrator is very skilled and does what she can with the book she has been given the text and story is lacking in being realistic and ability to connect to characters.
I would say if you want a short, incomplete feeling story in which nothing really of any importance happens and it stays free (it was $0.00 when I purchased it) then go right ahead. If I would have paid for this title using a credit or just outright purchasing it I would have returned it right away.
I have not. I do not have any fault with her performance though of the material she was given.
No, I do not believe so.
I did not care for the music at the beginning and end of the audiobook however it does go away quite quickly. The whole story is lacking in real climax or suspense. Everything is quite easily predicted and feels silly. I have no connection to the characters or the plotline. I feel like this could have been a short story and cut out part of the whole "romance"-ish nature and have it be (spoiler) just two people meeting one another realizing their parents at one point were engaged and sparks now fly between them. It feel cheesy and overdone.
This was a nice up lifting short love story.
I have not.
Voice was easy to listen too.
No. The story felt too short to be made into a movie.
Yes, it was a quick story with just enough of everything. Mystery, romance, loss, and a great happily ever after.
It's all about "YOU!"
Of course the "big event" - the tumbling down the stairs in her wedding gown into the arms of your new husband!
the story was delivered nicely. It is truly rare that I run into a 'horrible' narrator like some of the fake negative reviews on these sites claim an audio book to have.
that would be fun. To see how her life unfolds with the highs and lows and past brought forward.
Love listening to audio books.
I purchased the audio book years ago, so this is a re-read. It is a short love story, no
Lara's mom passed away a year ago, but wants to keep the tradition of wearing a wedding dress inherited by her mother. Currently unattached she only wants to find love. When a man, Dave, is hired to fix her stairs to the attic, she lands right on top of him, literally.
A secret love from the past comes to light, something that we as children, did not accept our parents to go through. When a wedding dress, that her mother has hidden in the attic leads to a love letters to her mother from a mysterious man named Peter. it leads to a love story that did not have a happy ending.
There are no consequences, this book is more about the 6 degree, everything comes to a full circle. I was surprised this was a short book, it has such great potential to become a longer novel, but she did a great job. The book doesn't has a long relationship with the emotions of the characters, but it worked for this book.
i enjoy this short romance. at first it started out kinda show for me and somethings told me to give it a chance to see what the outcome it am happy it when ahead n listen. i really enjoyed this short but sweet romance story
It works fine as a short story.
I'm not likely to try another of her books. Romance is just not my genre.
The performance was fine.
An impossible question for someone not interested in romance!
I haven't decided.
Over the top on cliche.
The language and grammar was wonderful. The story line, not so much.
I downloaded this book free on audible. I was expecting a romance of some sort based on the title. the entire book rubbed me wrong, falling in love literally within seconds of meeting somebody, to the point of saying they've already ran off with your heart. they had maybe said 50 words to each other. I just don't understand books where there's no backstory or depth into the story. I think the author could have really gone somewhere with the storyline if it had been developed properly and not rushed. I was not a big fan of the narrator, it seemed more is a comedy when listening to it based on how she did the male's voice.
