Trademark whimsy with heartwarming sentiment.

Rachelle Ayala knows how to have fun. With Going Toe to Mistletoe she manages to blend her trademark whimsy with heartwarming sentiment. Troy is Mr. Lonely Hearts. His talent for helping the lovelorn is legendary in his neck of the woods, but the fruits of his labor haven't done him any good. Enter Candi, fed up with love and down on her luck. A small town Christmas wedding could open the door to the chance at romance both are looking for. Tis the season to melt the heart and Ms. Ayala is off to a beautiful and entertaining start.

Mistletoe Fun In Sapphire Falls!

Going Toe to Mistletoe (My Country Heart Series, Book 2) is a artsy-crafty listen. I absolutely love this Sapphire Falls world with it's entertaining characters & merry narative. Candy & Troy's small town romance hits many obstacles, having you root for the characters. An endearing writing style that I really enjoy. This delightful audio is full of twists & unexpected surprises. You will find humour, sweet & spicey moments. A merrymaking audio perfect for Christmas season listening.

Charley Ongel and Tor Thom are a perfect duo. Their duet narration is brimming with heart and chemistry. Giving each character their own intonation.

A entertaining series and listen. Looking forward to listening to the next audio in this series.

Very Cute!

This story is very cute! I loved the whole scavenger hunt and the love assist from Honey and Max. I wonder if Troy is in other books as well showing off his advice to lonely ladies. I will have to give them a read/listen and find out. There are many fun things that happen in this story. I enjoyed the whole Christmas theme and characters. The wedding and the whole Santa bit..were great.

At first I felt a little lost while listening to this. This has so many characters that I am assuming are from other books that I just quit listening to their names and who they were with. Eventually everything made sense This did not deter me from following story of the main characters. I just obviously need to read the other stories :-)

This is a first time author for me. I enjoyed her writing style and characters not to mention the little town of Sapphire Falls. I was shocked a few times and chuckled others. I did listen to this on audio and enjoyed the two narrators Tor Thom and Charley Ongel. They did a wonderful job portraying all the characters and they are easy to listen to.

Going Toe to Mistletoe

Sapphire Falls, where love abounds...

Candi is in town to attend her sister’s Christmas Eve wedding, but she may be in store for so much more. While on a scavenger hunt, she finds more than what’s on her list.

Troy is great at giving relationship advice, but he has yet to find his special someone... that is, until Candi comes to town.

I love this sweet, feel good story by Rachelle Ayala. As always, Tor Thom and Charley Ongel delivered great performances.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

True Love Is Complicatedly Simple

The My Country Heart series is a fun, thought-provoking, and beautiful example of how simple or complex life and love can be. Most times we make things harder then they need to be by looking for reasons to avoid the best things in life thinking we aren't good enough for it when in fact we are the person person for it. Everyone deserves to be loved no matter how many mistakes they make because when you finally find the right one for you, everything between you is never a burden or a chore. It's a precious and readily available gift waiting to be claimed and cherished forever.

This is yet another wonderful example of the marvelous narration with Tor Thom and Charley Ongel. They are so great together, and they make these stories shine and stand out. It is truly a pleasure to listen to another great layer to these already incredible stories. What a treasure and pleasure for the ears!

Mistletoe Mischief

This is a small town romance helped along by a scavenger hunt for some outrageous items! The relationship moves extremely fast despite a few twists due to conflicting “love” advice and becomes intimate. It has a HEA. No cliffhangers, but is part of a “sisters” series.

Fun romantic story

Audio review. This book is a good read but even better listen! Tor Thom and Charlie Ongel have such a way of bringing a book to life. Tor Thom has a sexy rich voice and makes the male character ooze sex appeal and Charlie Ongel has a fun easy to listen to voice that makes the female characters more lifelike.
Going toe To Mistletoe is fast-paced, fun and sexy.
Candi Meyer's boyfriend just stole her dance studio and ran off with most of her customers. She has to go to Sapphire Falls, a small town in Oklahoma where her sister Honey is having a Christmas Wedding. When she gets there, she finds a scavenger hunt list the first item is to steal a mistletoe at the local bar and hang out.
Troy is the most desirable Bachelor in town and an advice columnist on an online forum. He tries to stop the Mistletoe thief and finds out that his advice can backfire.

I loved this story. It was a fun read with lots of humor a bit of a twist and some fascinating characters.
If you like sexy advice columnists, touristy towns, Holiday stories, and a fun-filled, sexy romance, this is for you.

Christmas in Sapphire Falls

Candi Myers was dumped by her boyfriend and dance business partner so she's taking a time out while she's in Sapphire Falls for her sister's wedding. Troy Caine is a psychologist who moonlights as the local love advice columnist. Troy meets Candi when she steals the mistletoe over the door to the bar. She was sent to steal it as part of a scavenger hunt by her sister. Troy really falls for Candi and tries to win her over but since she's trying to get over her ex, he's having trouble. Candi writes to Mr.T to get advice. Unknowningly, Troy as Mr. T is blocking his own progress with his advice to Candi for their relationship. This is a cute story and I love how it ends. This is the second story in the series but you don't have to listen to the first one in order to enjoy this one but you should. Tor Thom and Charley Ongel do a great duet narration.

Another Sapphire Falls win!

Sapphire Falls is a funny town with a penchant for celebrating the various holidays in traditional and exciting ways while remaining committed to the romantic endeavours of the citizen. As far as the series goes, this is the second book and it is fairly stand-alone though the first book definitely leads to the second. It is almost Christmas. Honey and Max from book one are preparing for their second wedding, an event that brings Honey's broken hearted sister, Candy, to Sapphire Falls and straight into the sites of Troy Cane. Of course this isn't the first time Candy and Troy have encountered each other. Unbeknownst to them, Troy is Dr. T, an online agony aunt and Candy has been writing to him for advice. Talk about a tangled plot!

This story is slightly messy in a delicious way. It is always fun when the reader/audience has a clearer picture of what is happening while the characters muddle around in the dark. Rachelle Ayala always creates characters who are quirky, vulnerable, interesting and easy to relate to. I likes Candy and Troy and look forward to finding out what happens next for them if Rachelle Ayala provides the readers/listeners with glimpses into their lives in future books.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Getting into the holiday spirit!

Where better to get into the holiday spirit than in Sapphire Falls? This adventure happens around Christmas. The town is trying to come up with how to celebrate, and with the decoration of mistletoe, things get a little crazy. At least for Troy and Candi! Candi comes to town, a dance teacher who has been dumped numerous times. Her last boyfriend really took her for a ride, so she is not looking for a relationship. Troy, a social worker has been playing the field, but after seeing Candi, that all changes. The fun really begins when Candi writes to the town advice columnist for direction on how to proceed with the handsome Troy. Little does she know who is responding to her! Will these two get out of their own way to find their happiness? We even get to see Honey and Max from Going Haywire! Come join in the holiday fun with dancing and love!

Tor Thom and Charley Ongel's narration is like a present! These two provide a wonderful listen. Troy, Max and even Candi's horrible ex are voice with the smooth sound of Tor. His voicing is perfect for each character. From Honey to Candi to their mom, Charley gives each their own style and personality that flows with ease.Merry Christmas!
