Publisher's summary

Jason Hayes loves working as a nurse and living in Celebration Township - or he did until Riayn Simmers showed up in town, and a secret from his past is threatened to be exposed.

Riayn Simmers is shocked to find her college love-and the man she had called a heathen-residing in the same town as her aunt. Now Riayn needs to decide if she can handle sticking around to run her aunt’s bakery, My Baked Buns.

Somehow Riayn and Jason must find a way to coexist in the small town, but what happens when Jason’s secret is exposed and he’s up to be auctioned off at the Valentine’s Day Party? Will the town believe, as Riayn once did, that Jason truly is a heathen, or will he finally win over her heart for good?

The Celebration Series:

Welcome to the third book in the Celebration Township Series, Heathens to Hearts. This series consists of 13 stories that take place over the course of a year, beginning with Christmas. During that year, 12 more stories will unfold in the Township of Celebration, Pennsylvania, and each release will coincide with an upcoming holiday.

The Awesomeness continues in Celebration Township!

I am loving this awesome series, the characters and storylines are amazing, each book features a different couple and holiday, they can be enjoyed on their own but I think it is best to enjoy them all and in order. This book picks up just before the previous book ended and is Jason Hayes and Riayn Simmers’ story. Riayn loves to bake and working in her aging Aunts bakery, “My Baked Buns” as a trial run to see if she would like to take over the business and settle in Celebration. She loves the town and it’s folk, she also loves putting her own spin on the menu adding some of her favorite sweet treats into the mix. The only problem she sees is having to live in the same small town as her ex. Jason moved to Celebration after he landed the job at the area hospital. He was surprised to see Riayn at the New Year’s eve party, it brought back memories for him, ones he wished he could forget. He and Riayn knew each other from college, actually they were once in love but the relationship ended abruptly and badly. While they still harbor feelings for each other can they get past what happened in the past, can they let it go. With meddling relatives and friends can these two get their second chance or is Celebration too small for both of them. I loved how everything plays out in their story, including the Valentine’s Day fundraiser auction, which was superbly done. Can’t help but fall in love with the characters in Celebration Township, PA. Stacy Eaton, thank you for another wonderful story, I enjoyed every word and minute of it, the laughs, the drama, the heartfelt moments and the sweet romance.

Yvonne Cude is a talented narrator and voice artist. She was perfectly casted to portray these characters and bring them to life. She does a great job covering both male and female characters, changes roles flawlessly without missing a beat. She sets the perfect tone for the story, adds a slight dramatic flair which enhances an already great story another level. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another fabulous listen🎧

A good addition to the series

We are back in Celebration Township and in this book the story belongs to Jason Hayes and Riayn Simmers.
Jason is a nurse that during his students years he had a profession he divulges to no one.
Riayn, a baker and now living in Celebration and working in her aunt’s bakery, is shocked when she sees Jason after all these years. She met and fell in love with him during college never knowing how he was supporting himself and paying for college. Until one fateful night when she sees him in the club he worked at kissing a woman. She was hurt, felt betrayed and called him a heathen, never expecting to see him again.
Imagine her shock to see him again and finding out he’s a nurse working at the same hospital as her friends. Friends that are unsuccessfully trying to get them together .
Will each end up moving on separately because of the past and present misunderstandings, or will understanding about the past and looking forward to a future give them a second chance?
Another entertaining story in this series.
I would like to add that the narrator performance was very good and it was easy to differentiate the various characters and their voices.

second chances

Jason and Riayn shared a past - one that was ruined when she discovered a secret he kept from her for a year, right before he planned to confess all to her. They never expected to find themselves together again in the same small town of Celebration, nor did Jason think his hidden secrets come to light when he had so firmly left them in the past.

I've loved each book in the celebration series and this book is no exception. It was a sweet second chance at love story. The Valentine's Day bachelor auction was definitely one of the highlights of the book. I can't wait to read the next story in this series.

I received an advanced reader copy of this audiobook and voluntarily provided this honest review.

Ryan & Jason

Ryan and Jason dated in college, but Jason's lies about his job drove Ryan away. Ryan believes only the worst about Jason, even after eight years apart. A cute, Celebration read.

Valentine's in Celebration!

The next holiday we get to spend in Celebration is Valentine's Day, and while normally full of love, this novella has us wondering if there will be hearts and flowers! Jason is a nurse in Celebration, and when he bumps into his old college girlfriend, Riayn at a bar in town, he is shocked! She has moved here to see if taking over her aunt's bakery may be for her. But will they both be able to live in the same town? Will Jason's past come to light and will he be accepted? Will Riayn ever be able to move on from her hurt? Stacy Eaton once again is pulling me into this town and letting me enjoy the fun! What's better than lemon blueberry muffins and a male auction? I would love to be there! But what is truly great about this story is the complexity of the characters and the emotions they go through. Plus we get to see our old friends from previous books and get to meet new ones. I am enjoying this series. Short, fun, romantic and just truly enjoyable listens to escape with!

Yvonne Cude brings this one to life with a wonderful performance. She finds the voices perfect for each character and gives each one a personality that fits them! She did a great job!

Heathens to Hearts

Years after a messy breakup in college, Jason and Riayn each find themselves in Celebration. Can they put the past behind them and take a second chance at love? Or, is Celebration too small of a town for both of them to stay in?

I’m really enjoying The Celebration series, by Stacy Eaton. Her characters and their situations are true to life. Each story is stand alone, but the main characters from the prior stories take on secondary roles in the subsequent books. I love how it all fits together.

Once again, Yvonne Cude has done an admirable job with the narration. Very entertaining.
