After her divorce, Charlene Dugan vowed never to get married again - a promise she has kept for twenty-five years. Until the fateful day she finds herself uttering the well-known phrase - "Let's get married!" Almost immediately, Charlene's seemingly perfect life begins unraveling at the seams. Daughter Stephanie's own relationship is about to disintegrate, and she might be just a teensy-weensy bit jealous of her mom. And Charlene seems to be spending more time with her ex-husband than with her fiancé, Dennis.

Robyn Carr is one of my favorite authors! I enjoy reading her books. I was not disappointed in this one. Overall it was a very good "uplifting" book! The narrator was easy to listen too and it was a great story line as usual.

This is the first time I've read/listened to anything by this author.
I read how she came up with the concept of this book and was intrigued.

I do not want to tell everything that happened, but I fell in love with the characters of Mattie and Lizabeth.

If you like period books, this is a good one, a great one an AWESOME book!

A must read!

looking forward to other books by her!

Of course I heard about the movie and the book when they came out. I never read it or looked at the movie, but I guess this was time. It is an EXTRAORDINARY book! Uplifting! A must-read. Not only did I fall in love with the characters and was rooting for them, but I LEARNED from the book. I am going to ask the ladies at my church to read/listen to this.

This is a new series for me, but I'm totally loving it!

I think the author took a different approach in this book, but it was wonderful!

A lot of questions were answered.

I will not say more, do not want to reveal anything.

JUST LISTEN! IT'S WORTH IT!

The story line was AWESOME! I ALWAYS love Susan Mallery. The narrator wasn't the right person for this book. She sounded extremely young, but then again maybe that's how it was recorded, I don't know. I always tell myself to give it a chance and the vocals did get better, but whenever I stopped for the day and picked it up again the next day, I had to start all over. Again, it's a great story line. A great book to just escape.

My name is Amelia Gray. They call me The Graveyard Queen. I've been commissioned to restore an old cemetery in Asher Falls, South Carolina, but I'm coming to think I have another purpose here. Why is there a cemetery at the bottom of Bell Lake? Why am I drawn time and again to a hidden grave I've discovered in the woods? Something is eating away at the soul of this town - this withering kingdom - and it will only be restored if I can uncover the truth.

My name is Amelia Gray. I'm a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I've always held fast to these rules passed down from my father…until now. Detective John Devlin needs my help to find a killer, but he is haunted by ghosts who shadow his every move. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I've vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the headstone symbols lead me closer to truth and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next.
