Saffron Mills has lived all of her almost thirty years in Harrington, Maine - a small town where fishing is plenty, but available men are far too few. Yet it's not just her dating dry spell that draws her to recent arrival Logan MacGowan. Tall, dark, and handsome, with emerald-green eyes and an impossibly hot body, Logan is a gorgeous enigma whose silence she takes for indifference...until one unforgettable chance meeting, when pent-up attraction ignites into the most intense encounter of her life.
In this quiet, quirky town, no one knows that Logan's alter ego is famous sculptor and tabloid darling David Cambre. In New York, he had all the wrong kind of attention, but in Harrington, he's found peace, privacy...and Saffron. She's witty, forthright, and so much sexier and stronger than she knows. But how do you protect the love you've been waiting for when your own lifestyle could be destined to rip it apart?

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
You really get a feel for this small town in Maine and it's quirky inhabitants, monthly weird and wonderful Festivals and the total lack of eligible men. Then there's the feisty and funny bartender Saffron who's had to resort to online dating with funny and disastrous encounters. Scottish handsome Logan has been coming into the bar for six months, he's mysterious, he's been watching Saffron and he talks to other people but not her - even though she carries on talking to him and baiting him to speak to her with one-way conversations, jokes and her life's anecdotes. That is until there's a food fight down Main Street during the Swordfish Festival which finally breaks his resolve..... and from then on it's a tender beautiful love story.
There's fun, drama, angst, life threats, secrets, mystery, danger, heartbreak, great secondary characters and Logan and Saffron a loveable couple who fall deeply in love..... but sadly it's a doomed relationship from the start. As well as that, there is a very poignant tragic sad love story between her Father figure of a friend who is over 90 and that storyline is threaded throughout the main story. Told from Saffron's POV with some funny internal thoughts by her and it's really well narrated by Cris Dukehart who easily managed all the various different accents called for.
Worth a credit? Oh YEAH it definitely would have been but it was a bargain at under $10 and so I saved my credit for a higher priced listen but one that may not be as well-written, entertaining, amusing and as enjoyable as this was.
it was a bit unrealistic, but overall I did enjoy the story. Her books usually are a nice way to pass the time.
I am an avid reader, not a professional book reviewer. I gladly offer my opinion of the books I read/listen to.
This is the love story of Saffron and Logan. Saffron lives in a small fishing village and the world renowned artist tries to lose himself quietly living in the small town. This was a story I enjoyed, but could put down. I was not invested in their love story. They have ups and downs ... but manage to get to the HEA we all love to listen to. While I was not overwhelmed with this listen, I found it worth the sale. The narration was not annoying, and was pleasant.
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
Although Saffron (bartender, 29) and Logan (artist, 32) are not really teenagers, I couldn't tell by their juvenile behavior.
The beginning showed potential, but as soon as the couple hopped into bed, they reverted to adolescence - insecurity, temper tantrums and squabbling. Plus, they keep having unprotected sex with no discussion of birth control or health testing.
The setting was supposed to be a small coastal Maine village - less than 1,000 residents - but it didn't feel realistic or authentic. Example, Logan goes swimming in the bay without a wet suit, which is not possible even in summer.
The story seemed choppy and disjointed, causing me to loose interest. Not even a cute puppy or a mystery stalker could save this book.
"You must read"
Great story line written with humour, love and compassion. Witty and moving. Must read.
