Publisher's Summary

Her devastating marriage behind her, Raylene Hammond is truly thankful for her best friends, the Sweet Magnolias. They’ve taken her in, shielding her from the world. Then she meets sheriff’s deputy Carter Rollins, and suddenly Raylene’s haven no longer feels quite so safe.

Carter understands why Raylene is trapped inside. He’s even taken to bringing the outside world to her. But with two kid sisters to raise, just how much time can he devote to this woman who’s stolen his heart?

Raylene knows Carter is a man worth loving, but she may never be strong enough to accept what he’s offering. How long can she ask him to wait? Maybe they’ll never have more than this one sweet summer.

Savor more Sweet Magnolias.

Good story, horrible narrator!

Where does Honeysuckle Summer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have many audiobooks and this rates mid way through all of them.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoy the connection of a group of women and their friendship over time.

Would you be willing to try another one of Mary Robinette Kowal’s performances?

I would prefer not to. I have all the books in this series , so I've listened to more of her than I care for. I can usually blank out the narrator if necessary and just go with the story, but I found myself thinking "This is really awful". She's okay when just reading but lousy at the voices.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really.

Terrible narration

The story itself is good but the phony southern accents are horrible and irritating. If I didn't want to hear the rest of the story I'd cancel it. The first of the Sherryl Woods that I've encountered this. I've always loved them before.
