Publisher's Summary

Arlene Bowers is as tough as nails. She has survived a less than perfect marriage, managing to move past it to run her own diner. Her abrasive exterior has always been a way for her to hide behind the darkness and pain that she has endured, but a recent, violent attack and several disturbing phone calls have that tight hold on her emotions wavering.

Seb Griffin showed up in Cedar Tree eight months ago and was hired on at Arlene's Diner as a cook. An ex-con with secrets of his own, Seb walks a fine line. Since he began working at the diner, he's developed feelings for his fierce, stubborn boss, and the need to keep his distance from her, to protect her, is a daily struggle.

When it appears that Arlene's past has come back, rearing its ugly head while her defenses are low, Seb steps up and claims responsibility for Arlene, praying that he can keep her safe from whatever is coming her way.

Great plot

This author draws very believable characters and twisted plots. BUT needs to lose 2/3 of the heavy sex scenes. A little goes a long ways. It is almost like it is the way to make the book longer. I would rather a shorter book without meaningless, repetitive sex scenes.

Great character development!

I'm glad to finally have Arlene's full story. She was a side character in the first book of the series and you could tell she had been through something difficult. And now that I know, difficult is too nice of a word for what she has been through. Talk about a tough woman. To go through all that she did and continues to face, would crack most people. Arlene is a very guarded person but she has valid reasons for it. If anyone deserves a HEA, it's her.

Seb was a bit of a surprise for me. He was very protective of Arlene no matter how much she fought him on it. He is also another character you get introduced too in the first book and I knew there was more to his story as well. I was sad to hear about the things he has been though but it also made his pairing with Arlene even better. They fit.

So far, I'm really enjoying this series and all the characters. I also listened to the audiobook version and highly recommend it. The narrators did a really great job with these characters. Great book!

Good Odds!

The 1st book in this series was good and with this 2nd book you can see Freya developing her style. The excellence is peeking through! Better character development, plot and flow. Thoroughly enjoyable! Things aren’t always what they seem, this story keeps you on your toes!

Arlene and Seb’s story

We met Arlene in book 1 and know that she has survived a harrowing experience. This is her story and Arlene is suffering from PTSD but hasn’t shared with her friends. She is attracted to the cook at her diner, Seb, but is afraid to act on it...she doesn’t have a good track record with men. When someone starts stalking Arlene, Seb finally shows her how HE feels.
Lots of action and steamy moments. Love this series!

Loved everything!

Audiobook: Narrators – Tanya Eby and Noel Harrison

This narration was a perfect fit for these two mature characters. I enjoyed everything about this performance as it pulled me further into the story – more so than reading alone.


I loved getting Arlene and Seb’s story! Arlene has definitely had some hard, bad, nightmarish times and recent events have only added to them. I knew going in that Seb was going to be just the one to help her, despite her tough exterior, but I never knew what she had hidden. He was everything perfect for the job and I loved how he took such care of her body and heart.

This is filled with lots of drama and action even as it’s sprinkled with humor and iced over with some hot steamy times that made me quite envious. With a few twists I never expected and so many secondary characters that added to the story, I once more fell in love with the magic this author gives us with her mature characters and plots.

Loved the narration of Noel Harrison and Tanya Eby, both flowed very well

We meet Arlene again in this second book of this wonderful series . Arlene has not had an easy life. She has survived abuse from one a stranger and by the one person who is meant to love and protect her.

He quickly realises that Arlene doesn't need anyone to protect her. But needs someone to support her and just be there.
The battle for Arlene is breaking down her defences and realising she is worth being loved ,

Some hot and steam scenes

Small Community, great friends & suspense!

So glad the audio for Hundred to One has come out, I had to listen, I love audio books! I think this is one of my favourite stories out of the series. Arlene is such a strong character, all brash and bite, she had such a rough ride throughout her life, but underneath she really is a beautiful soul and once she lets Seb in, they are a glorious couple. Her friendship with Emma is tight and a cackle a moment, when those two get together, the one liners are free flowing.
This book has such a great feel about it, small town, tight friends who would do anything for you, and the friends make lots of appearances in this book. Once again, we have an older couple with real life issues and health troubles, don't get me wrong, this read is still a great escape, even though there are some heavy issues addressed in this book. I adore the whole series. I thought the narration was great, I like both Tanya and Noel's take on the characters, I think Tanya's narration style actually improved for this book and was better than in the first book of the series. Definitely worth a listen.
