Kerri Manning returns home with only one semester of college left. She's in pain and trying to figure out what to do with a diagnosis that will change her future. It's hard to dream of happiness, but the new guy in town manages to make her laugh. Can she take a chance he'll stick around? 

Eric Hunt is an up-and-coming sculptor who has grown tired of his fake friends in New York City. He finds himself in the small town of Eureka Springs looking for the passion he used to have for his art. Could Kerri be the inspiration he needs?

Story is Great

I started this series backwards, I started with book three and worked back to book one. I really enjoyed the story it flowed well and portrayed everyday things. The narrator I was not too impressed with, I have listened to other books this particular narrator has done and I am still not taken with her. I probably would have enjoyed the book more if I had read it. I did enjoy the book itself just not the narrator. I received a copy of this audio book for free from StoryOrigin for an honest review.

sweet as chocolate

A super sweet romance read/listen. Clean and sweet, this is an overall heartwarming read/listen. Both of our main characters have recently been hurt by past relationships and are more than shy when the spark of chemistry is instantly ignited between them. Can they over come past hurts and current insecurities to find their love? This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

sweet and hopeful

A sweet and hopeful story. I liked the characters and their willingness to overcome their hardships. In my opinion, the narrator was a little dry and at the beginning of the story sounded a little mechanic. It got better with the progress of the story. I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Easy and quick listen

It was easy to get lost in the story. Kerri and Eric were great characters learning to trust one another. This is a happily for now kind of ending. The narrator was pretty good too. I found myself immersed in the story easily.

Broken angel or angel muse?

Kerri returns home to her small town totally devastated from a medical diagnosis that makes her feel all her dreams are unreachable and she has to face a new reality of pain and disability. Eric an accomplished sculptor flees the big city totally drained from expectations and the feeling that people only like him to use him. She has a hard time feeling anyone would want to be saddled with her quickly breaking down body and he had to learn to trust. The timeline is supposed to only be 2 weeks which seems a bit condensed for all that happens-from buying a house to making 4 sculptures and all the relationship things going on. It was a good listen but 4 weeks minimum would be more realistic.

Enjoyable romance

I read this book a year ago and really enjoyed it, so I thought I’d enjoy the audiobook. I like that this book has a heroine with a realistic problem - she suffers from a chronic debilitating disease. I like River Ford’s writing, but I wish a different narrator had been chosen for this book.

I want to move to Eureka Springs

Book: Chocolate Kisses Author: River Ford Narrator(s): Kathleen Miranti Did the Audiobook meet your expectations? River Ford has created a fantastic story and the characters are believable. The heroine Kerri suffers from a chronic illness and you as the readers get a glimpse into how she perceives her new “normal” How did the story make you feel? This story really hit home for me as I too suffer from the chronic illness (although I was diagnosed at a much younger age) and many of her fears where ones I can relate closely to myself. Did the narrator make it easy to follow the story? Did you find the narrator’s voice fitting for the main protagonists(s)? I think Kathleen Miranti has done a great job with her performance. The characters and storyline flows nicely and is easy to follow along with. Do you recommend this audiobook and will you pick up more? This is actually the second book from the series that I have listened to (I read them in the wrong order oops). I really love River Fords writing style and ability to tell a story that is realistic. I will be looking for the other books from the series. I was gifted this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
