Olivia Bennett is on the tenure track at Cornell University, the resident expert on Southern women writers. After moving to upstate New York from Atlanta, she falls in love with and purchases an old, run-down farmhouse. The only catch: she knows nothing about renovating a house, taking care of land, or snow. Joss Bauer is a New York native who grew up in her family's construction business. She has a soft spot for old houses, but no patience for overpaid debutantes who want to play at country living.

The narrators vocal choices for the different characters made it hard to listen to. I chose to stop listening around chapter 4 as it seemed like the better option. I rated the story at a two because I wanted to finish the story but couldn't bring myself to do it with that narrator. It is your standard love story so I may some day read the book.
