    • The Audible Editors fell hard (and got really hungry) while listening to Sarina Bowen's second chance, culinary, sexy farmer love story.

      Vermont was never in Audrey Kidder's travel plans. Neither was Griff Shipley. But she needs a second chance with the restaurant conglomerate employing her. Okay - a fifth chance. And no self-righteous lumbersexual farmer will stand in her way. Too bad their sexual chemistry is as hot as Audrey's top secret enchilada sauce - and then some.

Discussion Questions:

1. Is this your first time listening to Sarina Bowen?

2. What are your initial impressions of the dual narration by Saskia Maarleveld and Tad Branson?

3. Do you think that Griff is being too hard on Audrey in the beginning? Or do you think he’s justified?

4. No slow burn here! Did you like how quickly Audrey and Griffin rekindled their college fling?

5. Were you inspired to try any new recipes in the kitchen listening to Audrey obsess over (and cook!) organic produce?

6. Where do you imagine Audrey and Griffin will be in five years?

7. If you were Audrey, how would you have handled dealing with BPG?
