Honor Holland has just been unceremoniously rejected by her lifelong crush. And now - a mere three weeks later - Mr. Perfect is engaged to her best friend.

This title is the second in the series and I have loved them all! Xe Sands and Amy Rubinate perform them either individually or occasionally (to my delight) they narrate together. They are wonderful to listen to. I love all the characters in the series and although all of them are performed by one of these two wonderful ladies, it is as if each one is original. Both can do older voices, child voices, and even male voices without making me cringe. I have stopped listening to other books simply because of the narrator exaggerating their vocals while trying to do the opposite sex. Not the case with either of these performers. They both are able to change from one character to another seamlessly without causing any confusion to the listener. That is refreshing!
I enjoyed all of the stories as well, Kristan Higgins writes with honest comedy and romance. Not far fetched or unbelievable. Her leading ladies are not perfect and the men are flawed to be real enough but not so much that the fantasy is ruined. To me, that is the perfect romance novel...realistic women and dreamy fantasy men.

When Liz Hoole, a free-spirited liberal from the Midwest, marries into a conservative Quaker family, she knows that raising children in compliance with Quaker values will be challenging. Twenty-five years later, she still feels like she's falling short of expectations. Fortunately, her faith and her friends in the small, rural North Carolina town of Cedar Branch keep her strong.

I very much enjoyed this. I did not read reviews or anything that told me what it was about. I only knew it was a small town story. I was surprised by how much depth there was to it. So many stories entertained. Very enjoyable
