Publisher's Summary

Kennedy Donovan loved living in the city. But when a mysterious envelope arrives in the mail describing her new inheritance from an estranged uncle, she finds herself in the Alaskan bush country facing more than just snow. Family secrets, life-threatening blizzards, and the potential for love. Does Alaska offer Kennedy more than her life in New York?

Adam Stockton moved to McCarthy, Alaska, at 15 years old. Thanks to Neal Donovan, he’d grown up and adjusted well to the Alaskan frontier. But when Neal’s long-lost niece shows up to claim her inheritance after Neal’s passing, Adam finds himself potentially losing his last tie to Neal as well as his heart.

Can he show Kennedy that life in McCarthy is worth sticking out?

A spell binding listen

Loved this story line you don’t listen to a lot taking place in Alaska. The author wrote a story of self awareness and true love .
I really loved this new listen Well written and leaves you wanting more! The story line flows smoothly The world-building was is very well done and the descriptions given make it easy to visualise everything. Both the characters are very different but they are also very well drawn which makes them totally believable..

Meghan Kelly brought this story to life . She can do all the characters with her tone , you can be pulled into the story

Clean wonderful romance

The author has written a clean, wonderful, exciting, adventurous, story. Her plot and character development will make you fall in love with the characters that live in McCarthy, Alaska. Even Kennedy can't help falling in love with the town. Her actions make the town fall in love with her, too. The biggest question is will she want to leave her job and big city life to live in a remote small town that has such cold and harsh weather. There will also be a secret revealed that will have a long lasting effect on Kennedy. Adam is a man that will have the listener swooning. He wants her to stay but knows that this will have to be her decision.

Meghan Kelly does an outstanding job of portraying the emotions of these characters. She also does an excellent job of giving the characters distinctive voices and the listener will have no problem telling who is talking. Her voice and the author's words will create a vivid picture of this story and make you feel a part of the story. I highly recommend this Audible book.

Delightful, feeled with true emotion

This was such a delightful listen, I downloaded it last night and listened to it at one setting, I just could not put it down. It is a sweet, clean, exciting listen that had me chuckling and kept me smiling. There is a little mystery that you work out early, a little bit of a surprise that gave Kennedy a big surprise. They author blends it well in the story. The description of Alaska makes me want to go there and see this little town, it maybe hard county but it is so beautiful and I hate cold but I wanted to jump right in the book and play in the snow, see the wild country and be part of this town.

The narrator did a delightful job delivering a delightful listen, with wonderful character voices that blended great with the characters. I really could picture them in my mind, she gives wonderful emotions that you can really feel how the characters feel. I had no trouble knowing who was talking and what they were feeling. When Kennedy rolled her eyes and through snowballs I could picture it in my mind and had to laugh. There was no background noise, no repeating of words, no volume change just a very clear audio that I totally enjoyed. I really enjoy the narrators voice, it is pleasant, but strong, caring but she knows how to draw out the thrills, and even a chill. She makes it easy to picture the story in your head, she made me laugh and chuckle. Really bring the story to life. Ms. Kelly knows how to deliver an audio that keeps you hanging on with true emotion that gives you a delightful listen that you enjoy and can’t put down.

Once I started it I couldn’t put it down, looking up a was in shock when it said midnight and the story was over. I was sad for it to end, I really wanted to hear more about this town and their people. I enjoyed it so much that I bought the series, (not sure when I will find time to read) but did added all of this authors audio to my wish list do buy later. This is a well blended story of hope, caring, love, with true emotion that will touch your heart. It is sad but at the same time happy. You can’t help but smile, laugh and chuckle as your heart breaks a little, filled with a big surprise that blends well with the story line. The author and narrator blend well together bring to life a wonderful story of companion, finding yourself, healing old hurts, a little danger, sorrow, love but most of all bring a town together. It is a wonderful, delightful sweet romance that you won’t be able to put down.

Fabulous Story & Narration🎧 Sweet & Delightful!

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this fabulous story. It is my first book written Katharine E. Hamilton and definitely not my last, she is a gifted author with a wonderful writing style, she created interesting storylines and characters who are realistic, easy to relate to and connect with. I loved how natural the story flowed and how her descriptive details takes you right along side the characters to see everything through their eyes. I adored the two lead characters, Kennedy ”Ken” Donovan and Adam Stockton, the secondary are awesome too. Kennedy, a chef in NYC, inherits her Uncle Neal’s Inn in a remote area of Alaska. She did not know what to expect before going there but she found out McCarthy Road is a gravel road and not the safest to travel on. She makes it there to find out the inn is located in rural Alaska surrounded by wilderness. Luckily the people in the small town are friendly and helpful, especially Adam who was friends with her uncle and took care of the Inn after this passing. Kennedy just wanted to check out the place and figure out what she wanted to do with it, which meant most likely selling it. Her stay winds up being longer than planned and she starts to fall in love with the place and the people, especially Adam. She did not know much about her Uncle, who was estranged from the family but in time she learns more about him and who he was. I loved how everything plays out in this book, the story is beautifully plotted and contains a whole lot of heart. This is a sweet and clean romance, there is small town charm, it also shows the challenges of living in remote areas, how people help and look out for each other. Katharine E. Hamilton, thank you for this fabulous story.

🎧📚🎧 And for the wonderful narration, Meghan Kelly is a talented narrator and versatile voice artist. She performs the voices for all the characters, gives each their own distinct sound which makes it easy to follow along and tell who is who. She portrays each character with perfection, grasps each persona then takes the role and makes it her own. Her take on Kennedy was spot on, as was her take on Adam. She sets the perfect tone for the story, captures all of the characters emotions and projects them in to her performance. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another fabulous listen.

Fall in love with McCarthy Road

Alaska is a place on my bucket list, and I love to listen to books that take me there. Katharine E Hamilton has taken me to the coldest of places, difficult to get to, but warms my heart. Kennedy is a successful chef in New York. When she receives a bequest from her uncle in Alaska, she takes the time to go to see property. When she arrives, she is taken in by the charm and people, especially Adam. Adam was close to her uncle and took care of the inn. With sparks flying and snow falling, will Kennedy find she wants to stay? Hamilton gives us a beautiful view of Alaska with this small town community. I fell in love all of it! There are a few twists and turns as well that keep the story fresh and exciting. It's a great listen.

Brought to life by the talents of Meghan Kelly, I felt like I was there in the kitchen, cooking with Adam and Kennedy. She has a way of connecting with her characters that make them feel alive and real. Each with a special voice, she had me falling in love and enjoying my afternoon.

Fabulous!

Katharine has written the sweetest romance story that I know! Kennedy was raised in New York and she got word that her Uncle had passed away and left her his property in Alaska. When she got there, she met Adam.
Meghan Kelly is a very talented narrator. She can do the characters with perfection. It is such a delight to listen to her. I couldn’t stop listening to it and didn’t want it to end!

Excellent!

It was so wonderful to sit back and listen to Meghan Kelly tell us this romantic story of how Kennedy and Adam fell in love with each other in a book written by a new author to me, Katharine E. Hamilton.
There is a bit of a twist to this story but in the end all was neatly tidied up with a beautiful ending.
I just loved everything about this whole production and most definitely recommend it to all the hopeless romantics out there.
I listened to a review copy of the audiobook and. My voluntary and unbiased review is recorded above.
