Publisher's Summary

Feuding with his houseguest's brother and torn between worry and frustration over his twin, Slate MacAllister brings the rural doctor to his ranch in a record-breaking snow storm to save the boy Slate loves like a son. Dr. Becky O'Donald is a city girl stuck in Nowhereville, Montana, trying to hack down her massive student loan debt. Thrown into a medical nightmare by MacAllister and certain there is more going on with the lonely, melancholy Amelia, Becky is taken aback by the boy mirroring her host down to the dimple in his cheek.

Closeted on the sprawling ranch, surrounded by white, Becky fights the pull of the country life and the man exuding it. Certain he's with Amelia, the boy is his, and he's lying about having a brother, Becky denies her heart. But how long can she hold out against the man who rides to her rescue and kisses her knees weak?

Almost Okay

Would you try another book from Bonnie R. Paulson and/or Jenifer Krist?

No.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Better editing of the story. There were some big issues with believe-ability regarding the medical stuff. But, I may be picky since I work in the medical field. But it wasn't just that. There were other leaps of believability throughout.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jenifer Krist?

Someone who has more emotion that's for sure. She gets an A for enunciation and a D for performance.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Likely not.

Any additional comments?

The story has its moments that are cute. And I may not have been so critical if I'd read it. The narration took away so much from the story. It was like William Shatner/Capt. Kirk was reading it. Inappropriate stops and pauses.

Poorly written and very poor narration.

Would you try another book from Bonnie R. Paulson and/or Jenifer Krist?

Poorly written and very poor narration. Characters are so immature and uninteresting. I will not try another book from these authors.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I am currently listening to "Death of a Dapper Snowman (Book 1 of a Humorous Cozy Murder Mystery Series): Stormy Day Mystery #1" and am enjoying the human interest/personalities, and humor from the author. Additionally, the narrator has a good voice, and one that sounds the correct age for the characters. So many sound like they are 12 years old.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jenifer Krist’s performances?

Absolutely not. It is like listening to a 12 year old read - not only immature, but no interesting vocal abilities - just reading.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No.

Narrator' Valley Girl'

Would you try another book from Bonnie R. Paulson and/or Jenifer Krist?

The story line wasn't half bad but the Narrator read it as if she where a valley girl. With very little punctuation and no expression except for the silly teenage girl attitude. not good.

A little disappointing

The overall story line was pretty good, but I felt like there was a disproportionate amount of set up for following stories ( which I would Like to read) and not enough on the couple the story was about. The ending relationship wasn't very satisfying for me. And the whole "She-Doc" thing sounded awkward. Narration sounded more forced than a natural rhythm... Not as flowing as people typically speak.
