Ten years after disappearing from Antietam, Maryland, the bad boy has come home.

Though Regan claims to not want to get involved with a rebel, Rafe's pretty sure that her reaction to their sizzling kisses suggests otherwise.

ESPN baseball analyst Amy Spalding is swept back in time by a magical brooch and finds herself in 1909 New York City.

Catherine "C.C." Calhoun is determined to keep her family's estate, known affectionately as the Towers, in the family. She admits the cost of keeping up the crumbling mansion might be quickly exceeding what C.C., her sisters and her aunt can afford, but the only way to save the house can't be to sell it. Especially not to arrogant and handsome hotel magnate Trenton St. James III.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I loved this rendition of the book. I have also read it myself Kate does a super job on the many characters' voices

Who was your favorite character and why?

CC Calhoun is a GEM !! not your typical idea of a daughter of the proper Calhouns of Bar Harbor

Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

Aunt COCO is a charmer and soo delightfully clever
She reins in the girls with a look or a sob story

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh mostly, because we get introduced to all the characters and their varied personalities

Any additional comments?

Get this series to read but the audio version makes them all come alive
Kate did a great job
