This is a wickedly enthralling storyline that had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I couldn't wait to see what happened next! The wickedly twisted plot left me highly entertained as it allowed me to get to know all of the stunningly intriguing characters. All of the touched my heart in a very different way, and I was left with an intense feeling of completeness and family. I thoroughly loved the pace and creativity of the story that unfolded before my eyes, and I seriously can't wait to see what happens in the next book. This was one story I never expected to find, and one that I just couldn't let go of.

The narration was so perfect for this book. Sarah Puckett spoke life and love into this story which made it feel like heaven. The fabulous characters came to life as I experienced this story with a fantastically talented voice. What an extraordinary experience that I savored every second of!!

Hairdresser Ginger Myers is fed up with the noise and stress of city life. What could be better than a Valentine’s vacation in Sapphire Falls with hot and hunky country boys? Marsh Wolff is as country as they get. A son of a farmer, he dutifully stayed home to work on his family farm. It’s his turn to spread his wings, and what better way to start than letting Ginger Myers spiff up his style before his Valentine Day’s trip to New York City?

This is a story that will pull strongly at your heartstrings as it makes you long for a love like no other. No stops are pulled out as two people who find a deep connection try to stay cool and yet heat things up between them. Using a no strings excuse they find themselves walking a confusing and painful path until they come finally wake up to the precious treasures that are no longer in their reach. When love lights a fire in your heart, you don't smother it out. You fan its flames until it sets your soul on fire.

I loved Ginger and Marsh so much! They are afraid to be hurt yet again so they play fast and loose with their heart only to find they can't live like that. They need a deeper connection and love between them is a necessity and not a burden. How long will it take until they both just run after what they have wanted all along. Putting yourself out there is something we have to do if we want to know if the love we feel is truly real. Will love save these two lonely, hurting souls, or will they find that they just don't belong in the idyllic town of Sapphire Falls?

Tor Thom and Charly Ongel are fabulous in bringing this story with its wonderful characters to life! Their talent is such a wonder an a pleasure to experience, and I savor it each and every chance I get. Their voices work absolute magic with fun and powerful stories like this one!

For the first time in a long time, life is good. I've got a smokin'-hot motorcycle man as my fiancé, the best friends a woman could have, a couple of great kids, and things have been relatively quiet on the PI front. You know what that means...the other shoe was bound to drop sooner or later.... Just when I was ready to settle down and plan the coolest wedding Greenswood has ever seen, the shit hit the fan, and hit it hard.

This was such a deeply touching and emotion ravishing story that I love so much! It reached inside me and laid claim to my heart before I even knew what would happen to these wonderful characters. Above all, I knew that I would enjoy this journey no matter how hard or how easy it got, and I was so right.. The storyline left me with bated breath as I watched these amazing characters find their way while loving and fighting the enter time. The strong and devoted family and friends left me in tears a few times at their deep love and appreciation of each other. Nothing was left to chance when it comes to the lives of those you love and cherish. Love, live, hope, and eat cake!

The narrator brought life and power to the captivating words of this powerful story. She made you feel even more, and made the journey that much more memorable. What a great performance!

Justin Hayes was my best friend up until the day he broke my heart and disappeared. When I find out he’s my new boss, I’m about to leave with my middle fingers held high. Instead, I stop dead in my tracks as soon as he steps into my office. Justin’s all grown up, and he’s even more gorgeous than I remembered. He was always handsome but now he’s the kind of man I really want to… get to know. But it doesn’t matter. I despise him. He says he wants to work together very, very closely, but I can’t let him anywhere near me.

Just when I think this author has reached her eclipse, I find that she has only peeled back yet another layer of her fantastic creativity.

The My Country Heart series is a fun, thought-provoking, and beautiful example of how simple or complex life and love can be. Most times we make things harder then they need to be by looking for reasons to avoid the best things in life thinking we aren't good enough for it when in fact we are the person person for it. Everyone deserves to be loved no matter how many mistakes they make because when you finally find the right one for you, everything between you is never a burden or a chore. It's a precious and readily available gift waiting to be claimed and cherished forever.

This is yet another wonderful example of the marvelous narration with Tor Thom and Charley Ongel. They are so great together, and they make these stories shine and stand out.
