Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times best-selling author Sherryl Woods returns listeners to the beloved Southern town of Trinity Harbor with a story of second chances and finding love in unexpected places

How could the sensible daughter of Trinity Harbor's self-proclaimed patriarch have taken in the boy caught hot-wiring her car? Whether the boy is a modern-day Huck Finn or not, Trinity Harbor is in an uproar. But for Daisy Spencer, guiding the orphaned 10-year-old is easy, an escape from her own tragic past. She can ignore the town's nay-saying. The only real obstacle is...that man.

That man is the boy's uncle, Walker Ames, a tough DC cop who sees his unexpected nephew as his last chance at redemption. Soon he's commuting to the charming fishbowl of a town, where everyone assumes he's seduced Daisy - their best Sunday-school teacher! But to Walker, Daisy is a disconcerting mix of charming innocence and smart-mouthed excitement in a town that's not as sleepy as it looks.

too much discriptive sex

Disappointed that this was not a clean book without going into detail about sex loved the Chesapeake Shores books clean and wonderful I would not have purchased this book had I known it had this kind of content in it

A Splendid story with characters of all kinds

A Splendid story with characters of all kinds just so every person can relate to Trinity Harbor. Being my home of West Virginia.. i see a lot of Daisy in myself. The humor is splendid too. Something I rarely succumb to but caught myself chuckling along many times.

Lisping Narrator

What would have made About That Man better?

This story was implausible. School bus drivers that gather to smoke cigarettes before the students get on the bus? A cop that pulls a 10 year old off the street to interrogate him with no parent or other adult present? The story felt dated and in strong need of better research by the author.

Would you be willing to try another one of Megan Tusing’s performances?

I will not listen to another book narrated by Megan Tusing. There is no shame in having a speech impediment, but I'm thinking there are plenty of narrators available who don't have one. And okay, the southern female voices were not so hard to listen to with the lisp, but when the tough DC cop lisps ... it's intolerable. Done with this series and definitely done with this narrator.

While recuperating from surgery for a week I enjoyed listening to this story. I lived the accents.

Great story

Enjoyed this mightily. Bought the next two books half way through it. Nice blend of romance, good fun and a bit of police mystery plots.

What was Ms Woods thinking?

This was s great story that would have gotten 5 stars from me if it wasn't for the graphic sex. Here we are presented with this upstanding, moral " Sunday school teacher" who had no problem committing fornication, and was upset that the parents of her students considered her a poor example. I thought I would get all the audio books in the series, now I'm sure I won't.

About That Man

This book deserves five stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. I enjoyed listening to this book. I've started listening to Audible books 📚 and I really like it, especially Immersion reading. I recommend this book to everyone. There are two more books in this series, I'm looking forward to reading/listening to them 😊

Predictable

Sadly I could not warm to the central character, Daisy. She seemed to leap to the wrong conclusion and fly off the handle over nothing. She took on a young boy and then his Uncle turned up. A lot of time was wasted by Daisy worrying about the outcome when it was clear what would eventually happen. Other characters should have been developed, given more chance and used more. Skipped over some just to finish it. Rather disappointed.
