Publisher's Summary

In the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains lies a small town with a big heart - and a chance to begin again....

When Hannah Montgomery buys a lavender farm in Blue Hollow Falls with three friends, she's creating a life she never imagined - one she hopes will honor the memory of the sweet young son she tragically lost years ago. Standing on the porch of the sprawling farmhouse, looking out on row upon row of those lush purple plumes, Hannah is ready to embrace this fresh, new start....

Then she meets Wilson McCall. The stonemason hired to fix their crumbling chimneys and leaky roof is quieter than most folks in the Falls. Hannah's not surprised to learn the widower struggles with his own grief. Who could blame her if she finds joy in making Will laugh again, or if she feels a poignant kinship when she sees him with his teenage son? But her deepening friendship with Will reminds Hannah that there's a part of her that still needs to heal - awakening a tender yearning to have a life that isn't just good enough, but lived fully - even if that means taking risks once more....

This series keeps getting better!

I recently picked up the first Blue Hollow Series audiobook, narrated by Amanda Ronconi, because it was listed under the "More from the same narrator" section. I'm so glad I did! As soon as I finished Blue Hollow Falls, I grabbed Bluestone and Vine so I could find out if the Viking-esque sidekick Seth Brogan gets his own HEA, (Spoiler alert: He did!). So of course I wanted to grab Book 3, Lavender Blue, when I learned it was about the brooding single father/widower Wilson McCall! A whole new group of characters arrives on the scene in this third book, and I'm hoping that means we readers/listeners will get to spend more time in the Blue Hollow Falls! Another lovely sweet romance with realistic characters dealing with some pretty heavy stuff in remarkably realistic and healthy ways, but with enough quirk and humor and realness to the community and supporting characters to make the book an easy and enjoyable listen. I do think this 3rd book in this series went to another level - it could have felt cliche and formulaic, but Ms. Kauffman added some extra elements that made it feel true to life. Ms. Kauffman knows how to pen a love story that makes a listener's heart happy, and Ms. Ronconi knows how to narrate a love story - ANY story, in fact - to make a listener's ears happy. She does a great job of distinguishing characters - good male and female and various aged voices! Sex - some open door Language - now and then Violence - none except for references to past experiences Substance abuse - none except for references to past experiences Social drinking - some Looking forward to the next audiobook in the series!

Beautiful series!

This series is one of my favorites. Often, a romance series starts out strong, but disappoints after the first book. This one just gets better. I hope she continues the series with some of the new, and VERY interesting, characters that were introduced in Lavender Blue. As for the narration, Amanda Ronconi is amazing, as usual. She and Jim Dale are my favorite narrators. In fact, I only stumbled upon Donna Kauffman's books, because I was searching for books narrated by Amanda and I'm so glad I did.
