Publisher's Summary

Newly divorced and bought out of her company, Nathalie rents a holiday home in the South of France. After years of hard work and a failed marriage in Chicago, she’s looking for some peace and quiet, a place to clear her mind and figure out her future. Lena loves women, her dog, and landscaping, but that’s about as complicated as it gets. When she meets her new tenant for the summer, it proves hard to stay professional as a caretaker, especially when that tenant turns out to be everything she ever wanted and more. As time passes and boundaries blur, the moment of goodbye becomes inevitable. Nathalie isn’t looking for a new love, especially not in the form of a woman, and Lena has no desire to get her heart crushed again. Is it possible to find home in a place you’ve never been? And is it worth the risk, giving up everything for someone you’ve only just met? They say home is where the heart is....

Lisa Gold is Gold

I’ve only recently discovered Lise Gold, and I love her ability to developer a character and tell a story. Fantastic work once again. It wasn’t my favorite narrator but still good over all.

story

Story was very hard to follow with the voice performance. a few times it reminded me of old Christmas programs. going over subjects and characters was tiring. chapters only lasting average 9mins and not edited well.

I would listen to *anything* readby Tessa Stavers!

LIse Gold is a phenomenal author, for sure. But/and anything read by Tessa Stavers, I am totally up for!

I really enjoyed experiencing Nathalie's and Leah's progression in their relationship. And in deciding what was and was not important. A great read.

Narrator Woes

I had to stop about half way through it. I wanted to stick it out but the narration was just killing me. Her Natalie voice was too young and creepy. I tried and tried but it wasn't worth the cringe.

Great Listen

This was a very sweet story. Loved the way Lise Gold brought hear characters together and didn’t make it easy on them. The narration was good but the accents were inconsistent I think but didn’t take away from the telling of the story.

Gumbo anyone?

I’m really enjoying this author. She makes the “I know you like me“ dance worth waiting for. Lena was shocked to realize she had a Heart,and Natty was scared of the answer to her disinterest in sex. Several emotions were hit upon. Thanks. Off to my next adventure.
