When Jackson St. James decided that six weeks in Vermont's Green Mountains would help him get his life together, he didn't anticipate replacing his craving for whiskey with a craving for his alluring new landlord, Gabby. Now, instead of prioritizing his sobriety and the resolution of the lawsuit threatening his business, he's making excuses to spend time with the spunky young landscaper whose candor is more than a little addictive.
Gabby Bouchard refuses to let her pill-popping mother and unreliable baby daddy turn her into a cynic, so she doesn't fight her attraction to her enigmatic new tenant. Although Jackson's smile rarely reaches his eyes, his generosity and dependability make her willing to overlook his demons. But once she convinces him to give in to temptation, Gabby's jealous ex threatens to disrupt the life she has built for herself and her son.
With so much at stake, Gabby and Jackson must decide if love is worth the risk.

it was difficult to finish. the narration was bad. adter having the last 3 books narrated by the same oerson5and getting used to the persons voices. this person was bad with the lawyer.
Pronunciation should stay the same through all stories in a series...in the final one for some reason perhaps because it is male narrated it did not. It drove me bonkers that the name of one of the main characters of the first book who was mentioned plenty had her name mispronounced the whole book after two books of it being pronounced another way. I love the story but almost had to turn it off the name thing made me so mad. Poor producing not to catch this.
"Completes the Saint James Journey"
This is the third in the Saint James trilogy. I'm writing this review to cover all 3 of the novels.
What I enjoyed most about them all was the way that they all linked into each other neatly. The stories continued into the next novel even though we had had a traditional conclusion. Only Gabby transpired to be the newcomer to the clan.
However this finale was more heavy going than the others. Covering deep topics like substance dependence, single parenting and step parenting among others. So the narrative wasn't an easy one to hold onto. I felt that this story was 'tidied away' too quickly and glibly, given that there were law suits, man management and big business stories thrown in too. Another 4 chapters seem necessary to flesh out more details and tidy sections away.
As I'd listened to these stories back to back, I was a little discomforted by the change in narrator. It made sense to do so, but I confess that I didn't like David's 'new' voice on this recording, but on the whole, both narrators were fine. The novels need to be read in the correct order, starting with Worth the Wait - David's story. These are best read all together in my opinion, as they make a lovely whole. But Jackson's story - this one - doesn't bear the weight of standing alone.
