Publisher's Summary

Should she jump? 

When the train is headed for disaster, the engineer can jump out, right? 

Carolina knew moving teenagers from the Atlanta suburbs to a small Georgia mountain town was a horrible idea. She knew opening a B&B was an even worse plan. She can’t see around the next curve, but....

Should she jump? 

Oncoming headlights aren’t only aimed at her family, the town of Chancey is being set up for a collision that could change everything. And as that unfolds, Carolina’s husband Jackson is smack dab in the middle of it all, his hand on the throttle, going full steam ahead. 

Should she jump?

Would you?

Love these characters! Can I live in Chancey??

I have simply adored the first three books. For some reason, I thought this was a trilogy and was sad to see it end, but there's more!!!! I'm downloading book 4 as we speak. These folks are my family now!! Lol. Love love love.

Love this series

I loved this series from the start however this book was filled with some turmoil that I did not like. I like the couple and the family to be solid but they were on shaky ground which did not sit well with me. Basically, this series is a cozy one with great, likeable characters along with bits of knowledge sprinkled in. I am looking forward to the next one in the series. Anyone have a free code?

Enjoyed this storsy about small town life

Another great story. This book is as good as the previous volumes. A story most people can related to in some way. Small town life and its ups and downs.


Loved the narration. Suzanne Barbetta makes the story come to life.

I will listen to more books by Kay Dew Shostak!

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

This IS small town llife...

If you have never lived in a small town, you really won't understand how true this series of books are. The mom, Carolina, is realizing how hard it is to move from a bustling town of Atlanta to a slow moving, everyone knows everyone (and in your business) life. Best of all, as a passive/aggressive Mom, who LOVES HER KIDS, she is willing to do whatever it takes to make her family happy. Even if she is not sure that she is happy doing it. I love Carolina. I love the 'in your face' Lainey, the 'this is how it is' Susan and...Mrs...well...she reminds me of an Aunt I have, so how could I not love her, as well.
I got a bit aggravated with Jackson and his attitude about the B&B that HE wanted, but has nothing to do with, but Carolina makes it work.
Suzanne Barbetta is perfect as the narrator for this series. Her southern charm, the nuances of her voice, the flow in which she tells the story all bring the characters to life.
I love this series and HIGHLY recommend it!

Entertaining and will want to listen more than once

I absolutely love this series!

It has witty southern charm and along with nuggets of wisdom.

I usually listen to each book twice because it’s that good.

This is a series that I will listen to again.

they put the d in dysfunction

The dysfunctional family continues. Carolina is so NOT present in her life and marriage, that she makes me furious. Jackson is pathetic and apathetic. He can't standup to his maneater of a coworker Carter Mae!!! The kids (Sav and Ryan) run amuck. They make the decisions abd choose whether to tell mom Caro or not. Great parenting Caro. No discipline at all. Caro became more of the family and town doormat than ever. She acted too late and neither deserved a second chance. Too dumb for hea!! I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job.

Interesting

I enjoy listening to Suzanne Barbetta, she is a enjoyable narrator to listen to. This a interesting listen, we have a family moving to a small town and dealing with all the tribulations and trails the family go through. Crazy friends and characters , oh yes a meth lab.
