This was a cute and sweet Christmas romance. I liked listening to it. I have not read or listened to any other books by this author before. i would read or listen to another book by her. This story isn't for everyone though due to the insta-love and slight Christian theme within the pages. I liked that despite the insta-love aspect of the story there was a challenge for the characters to get over. I also liked the narrator. She was easy to listen to. I would recommend the book to anyone who enjoys a quick, easy, and fun romance book to listen to or read.

I really enjoyed listening to this story. It was a sweet romance. I liked the main characters and the small town setting. I liked most of the secondary characters too. There were a couple of twists within the plot that made it interesting. It had a good balance of romance and other stories within the pages of the book. I was happy with the flow of the story and found the back story of some of secondary characters just as interesting as the main one. The narrator was great and gave each character a voice of their own. I would listen to another book read by her. I would recommend this story to others who enjoy reading romance.

Another great story! I really like Robyn Carr and will continue to read/listen to her books. I liked the characters and I like the small town setting. I enjoyed the narrator as well. This is the second book I have listened to that she has read. I like her ability to bring the story alive. I can't wait to read or listen to the third book in the series.

I have read this book and listened to it. I enjoyed it both times. I really enjoy Robyn Carr's writing style and her ability to blend the perfect amount of romance with drama. Some of the twists and turns are predictable while some are not. I will continue to listen/read her books.

Identical twin brothers separated at birth...32 years later they are trading places. War veteran Dawson Trudeau never expected his estranged identical twin to walk into his bar in Alaska, let alone offer him $20 million to pose as the CEO of King Enterprises while he secretly heads to rehab for 30 days. With dreams of starting a homeless shelter for veterans and locating his retired service dog from Afghanistan, Dawson can't say no. Then he meets his brother's sexy assistant and he hopes she can't say no - to some overtime between the sheets.

I enjoyed listening to this book. I liked the characters. I liked Dawson and Lacey. I liked Dawson because despite getting the raw end of the deal as a kid he did pretty good for himself. He didn't sit around and wallow in self pity like many would. I liked Lacey because she was a good and loyal friend to his brother. The chemistry between the two of them was good. I want to see how things end in book two. I am sure other people would enjoy listening or reading this book.

I don't usually read or listen to books like this. I thought this one was good. I liked the practical advice it gives. It is a good read for those looking for a relationship, starting one, and for those who are already in one. It was interesting to hear about the different types of marriages. I knew about some of them but not all of them. This is a book I would recommend to others who like self help type of books.
