Publisher's Summary

For as long as she can remember, Lucy Dolan has been jotting down her hopes on slips of paper and saving them in a pickle jar - her jar of dreams. It was the first thing she saved when the beloved family diner went up in flames, and it's safely buckled in her beat-up minivan when she lands in Taft, Indiana, to start over. She rents a room and goes into business with her landlady, but then Gert's nephew comes charging in to "rescue" his aunt.

Boone Brennan will be damned if he'll let Lucy take advantage of Aunt Gert, who raised him and his sister. Believing that she's just passing through, he's deeply suspicious of her - despite the sparks that fly between them.

Just as Boone and Lucy are starting to open up to each other, a series of fires throws Lucy under suspicion. Boone wants to trust her and his feelings, but with the whole town against her, will he stay by her side? Or will Lucy move on and find another place to make her dreams come true?

Nice voice.

What made the experience of listening to Jar of Dreams the most enjoyable?

It's hard to judge this, since it's my own story, but the reader does a very good job and allows me to forget that I AM the writer.

Ending was good but it took forever to get there

I just truly could not get into this. It took so many weeks for me to finish this book because honestly I kept having to rewind because I would tune it out. It's sad, because there was nothing "wrong" with it and the narrator did the characters well, i think just the laid back voice, southern drawl slowing down the words, on top of a story that didn't have a whole lot of real plot points...just didn't do it for me
