Publisher's Summary

Ever since she discovered her ex-husband's affair, Dana Sue Sullivan decided to put down new roots and create the best restaurant in Serenity, South Carolina. After years of hard labor, her dream has become a reality. Sullivan's provides more than just Southern comfort food - it's become a haven for the whole town - and Dana Sue knows better than anyone that relying on friendship can get you through the toughest times.

But when her teenage daughter Annie develops an eating disorder that lands her in the hospital, Dana Sue's perfect life comes crumbling down. On top of it all, her own health starts to deteriorate. Dana Sue knows she needs to change habits now to help them both get better - even if that means letting Ronnie Sullivan back into their lives.

And who knows, his return might end up being a recipe for a new beginning....

Voice sounds automated.

I loved the first book in this series, but this one is fast and sounds incredibly automated. I’m not sure I can continue listening. Update: I found that if you set the speed to .8 or .9 you can get used to it

Accent is completely wrong

Very disappointed in the reading of this. Accent is OBVIOUSLY not southern. It’s distracting and take away from the book, couldn’t get over how wrong the voice was.

Narrator ruined it

I like the series and wanted to read the books before watching the new Netflix show. The narrator of this one made it difficult to get through.

Narration subpar

I am thoroughly enjoying this series, but have to admit the narration on this book was very difficult to get through. The narrator on the first book was great! I was terribly disappointed on this one, but managed to push through. I noticed this narrator is not in any of the remaining books in this series and I’m thankful for that because I would not have been able to push through more than this one book. Love this series and I’m hopeful they will continue to make these into Netflix seasons...I just loved the first season they made!

Narration is underwhelming. Over pronunciation is painful to listen too.

I enjoy the light story line of the three best friends. And I’ll continue to move through this book series.

However, the narration of this book is just awful! Whoever cast this actor may have missed the mark. The narrator reads as if she’s a high school drama actor auditioning for an evening news anchor position. I’m not usually one to critique so harshly, but with the attention this book series is gaining due to the Netflix series, the publishers should SERIOUSLY reconsider another recording of this one. It’s just hard to listen too, I’m constantly “hearing her voice” instead of enjoying the storytelling.

Horrible Narration

This may be one of the worst narrators I’ve ever listened to. If it were not part of a series I would have stopped listening. I sped it up and slowed it down. Nothing helped.

No. Just. No!

I don't normally write reviews, but this one is so bad that I have to.
This isn't Sherryl Woods' best work. It centers around a teenage girl's eating disorder. it tries to use the language of a typical teenager but falls short of the mark making it seem out of touch.
The story is set in South Carolina, but the narrator tries to give the characters a British accent. The attempt at different voices sounds forced.
It was hard to finish the book. The only reason I made to the last chapter is that I want to read the next in the series and thought I need to finish this one to understand the rest of the series.

disappointed

I really wanted to like this book, I did. I was pleased with the first of the series so I figured that it would be worth using a credit on the second. However, I didn't realize how much of a serious topic they would focus on.. which is fine. But! I could not convince myself to keep listening when it felt like the one character




SPOILER






was trying to make cheating justified by saying it's okay or "that's what men do sometimes" style attitude. Get out of here with that nonsense.

DNF.

Terrible narrator

The narrator from Stealing Home was much better. Sorry Lauren, but your accent doesn't make sense after hearing the first book in the series. I wish we could select a different voice and this would be a lot better to listen to.

Speed Reader

It seemed the narrator read quickly. Other than that, I enjoyed Dana Sue’s story. I look forward to listening to the next book.
