Publisher's Summary

Corey Bennett knows how to handle loss: she buries her grief, just as she buried her loved ones. After losing her parents to a tragic car accident and then her husband to cancer, Corey has focused all her attention on her career - first in law school and then on the partner track at a prestigious Atlanta law firm. When her boss insists she take a vacation, Corey balks. But two weeks on the Florida Gulf Coast, where she reconnects with Tripp, a childhood friend, prove to be profoundly rejuvenating.

Torn between her workaholic patterns and a new urge to nurture, Corey starts to question all her past choices. What does she want her life to be? And is she brave enough to say yes to love again?

J.A. Stone's graceful, big-hearted novel about one woman's rebirth reveals that sometimes the greatest courage is required for the simplest act: choosing your own path.

Narration

I like this story line very much. I have lived in Atlanta many years and found the narration to be very annoying. I know the characters were from Florida but the "southern " accents were not authentic. There was no consistency in the distinction of voices when transition of characters were made. However, I enjoyed the story line very much. I would recommend this book but not in audible form.

not what I expected

When I read the description for this book I decided to give it a chance. I was kind of disappointed because the description gives you a different impression. Plus there was VERY little romance; so if you like romance in your books...PASS ON THIS ONE!

Bad Southern accents ruined this nice story

I listen to a lot of audiobooks and have even recorded one, so I know its not an easy task. The southern accents in this recording almost made me stop listening. Only the story kept me going. The accents were like the characters were southern country bumpkins, not a lawyer and banker. Even worse, they were not consistent. The same character had many different accents. The narrators natural voice is very nice, she should have just given that voice to Corey. I found myself cringing at the accents many times. The story was nice, simple, easy to follow. I'm not sure where "Unexpected" comes into play because it was all pretty predictable. Nevertheless if you have a long lost love somewhere, you will enjoy this book. I think maybe kindle or hard copy may be the way to go.
