Publisher's Summary

Philadelphian Elizabeth Temple arrives in small Southern Bryeton to teach first grade in 1948, hoping to slide unnoticed into a spinster’s existence, believing she is unfit for any companion. She doesn’t count on falling for Jake Ryan, a WWII veteran tainted by a scandalous divorce, struggling to raise his young son. 

Despite an undeniable chemistry, the road to romance is strewn with roadblocks and detours. Between the very personal secret that has a devastating grip on Elizabeth and Jake’s temperamental soon-to-be-ex-wife, what looks like a sure thing could easily slip away.

Sweet story

A truly sweet and clean romance story that is so enjoyable to listen to. Two people suffer heartache and let no one know about it. Elizabeth not able to have children and Jake, whose wife left him and his son for another life without them. It took Jake's son to bring them together. The author did a fabulous job with this story and I certainly will look for more written by her and the narrator did a great job in the telling of it.

A Sweet Romance Novel

This audio involves the romance of two main characters, Elizabeth Temple and Jake Ryan. Elizabeth,a teacher from the northeast decides to settle in a Southern town and begin a new life. Having never been married,she struggles with her feelings when she meets Jake, a divorced father who has custody of his young son. The challenges between Elizabeth’s past and Jakes ex wife cause friction within the relationship. In addition, both characters have significantly different temperaments which lend to further complications.
Elizabeth Kelly does an excellent job narrating this story- by providing various voices to depict each characters successfully. She makes it easy to follow the storyline and it is clear as to which character was saying or thinking at any one time. Her voice had proper inflection relative to the emotion of the story. All in all, this novel was an easy and enjoyable listen- highly recommend. I received access to this audio for the purpose of review however, the insights and opinions were not solicited but derived from my own account.

All in Good Time

This story took me a bit to get into, but I kept going back to it. Finally it took off and turned out to be a good clean story. This time era was so simple and sweet. I love that it was centered around an area I am kind of familiar with. Elizabeth wants a fresh start, but she does not count on Jack and his son coming into her life and pulling on her heart strings. I love how everyone welcomes her in and she start to gain an extended family. Elizabeth Kelly does a nice job with the narration make you feel as if you are in that time and area!

Sweet Romance with Some Drama

A light sweet romance. At the time this book takes place, there is a healthy amount of drama. I liked how the two main characters kind of resist the chemistry between themselves. The author does a great job of developing the characters and their relationship. I don't think I related to Elizabeth or the story as well as I would have liked, but it was still a pretty good story with some unexpected moments .

I thought the narrator did a good job of being clear and consistent. Her voice captures the time period well and I think she did a pretty good job bringing these characters to life.

I received a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Completely sucked into the story!

MK Chester's All in Good Time started my afternoon off yesterday, and I was completely engrossed in the story! Elizabeth has come to Bryeton to escape her family and begin her life as a spinster. She is the town school teacher and did not count on falling for both Jake Ryan and his son, Charlie. Jake is a war veteran and a single father left by his wife. He did not plan on finding love again, but when Elizabeth comes into his life, he realizes things are changing. I loved the style in which MK Chester wrote this story. She includes several tropes, single fatherhood and second chances at love which are melded together and create a feeling of hope. There are a few unexpected twists, some playground scuffles and a lot of heart warming love. I think Charlie is the star of this one, his secondary story is one I see happening even in today's world and love how Chester handled him. He is a great little boy!

This is my first narration by Elizabeth Kelly, and I really enjoyed her performance. She has a beautifully, melodic voice, kept the characters easily distinguishable and her pace was perfect. I will look for more by her.

All in good time

I enjoyed this audiobook set after the second world war. The main character moves to a small town to become a teacher. She has a secret which she hopes will stay buried from both friends and family. Having moved away from her family she thinks her problem is solved until she meets a local single father who's young son is in her class. It's not long before sparks start to fly. However, there is a few twists and turns in the plot to keep the couple apart. The story moves along at a good pace. The characters are good, although I wasn't that fond of the main female. I found her a little cold in some parts of the plot. Maybe that was more to do with the era in which this tale takes place, when attitudes were different. The narrator did good work with the narration, character voices, and production. I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
