Publisher's Summary

In Oregon's timber country, inside a smoky bar, stands proprietor Tory Duncan. Once a hair's breadth from the Miss America crown, she's still just as beautiful and still searching for happiness.

Joe Brigham, a forthright and handsome man from a logging family, divorced, and father of one, regards her with a love deep and pure.

But trading in her search for an uncertain future, no matter the joy Joe promises to provide, seems more than Tory can afford.

An Old Favorite

Kathleen Geillis Seidel has been a favorite author since I first started reading romance novels years ago. I love her writing style, wry humor and strong character development. They are the ultimate comfort reads based on realistic working class characters without much angst, nothing very bad happens and you always get a HEA.

This book has long been a favorite that I have reread many times. But until recently it has not been available on audible. I was delighted to find it. Perhaps unfairly I have downgraded the performance part of my review because the readers voice is so far from the voices of the characters that had become established in my head.

One of the best heroes ever

I loved the book but had issues with the narrator - or possibly with the director. The reading was so slow that I listened with the speed set on 135%. Also, there were some annoying mispronunciations. Part of the story involves labor unions, so it really grated when the narrator pronounced "local" as "locale"!
