Publisher's Summary

The girl who got away.

Twenty years ago, best friends Alice and Misty shared a kiss...and then their entire relationship unraveled. 

Alice Cavanaugh has spent the past 20 years trying to forget her best friend's betrayal. She moved on with her life as a single mother and librarian in her hometown. But when Alice finds out Misty is coming for their high school reunion, she can no longer hide her feelings.

In 1996, Misty Morse promised Alice they would go to Seattle together, so Misty could pursue her dream of being a musician. With one quick, fearful decision, though, Misty ended up on her own. And she has regretted it ever since. 

When Misty returns, the former friends are thrown together for more than a week in small-town Vermont. Can Alice forgive Misty for leaving her behind all those years ago? And will Misty tell Alice how she really felt about her all along?

It's not spaghetti!

I love the Jea Hawkins and Lori Prince combo. Jea writes a lot of cute fluff stories, and Lori's narration is fantastic across multiple characters. Even though the frame of the story sounds like angst, it's really mostly fluff. From the beginning, we hear how much Misty thinks about alice, but she made the (regrettable) decision to avoid changing Alice's life. Alice's daughter Liza adds her own support and quirks to the relationship, not to mention a bit of fan-girling. They also team up to show Misty how (not) to eat Pad Thai.

I received a free review copy from the narrator.

Great story

Jea Hawkins did a great job on this book. You feel like you know the characters personally not just in a book. Lori Prince did a great job narrating the book. I will buy more book from both Jae hawking and Lori Prince. That you.

I love Jea's books

She makes the cutest FF books. Everytime i'm in a reading rut, one of Jea's books reminds me why I like reading. She's super great at taking the tropes from mainstream romances and adding them to niche ff romances. This one was great and I loved reading it.

Received a complimentary copy from the author/narrator

Yes, it was meant to be

Great story of love deferred and reunited. utterly believable.

The narrator was excellent, though in some places I had a problem with change of character/narrator. That can probably be attributed to the fact that this was my first(complete) audio book narrated by a human. LOL
Excellent overall, highly recommended!

GOOD READ!

I liked it. The narration was good and kept you entertained. This author did a good job with the character builds and plot. This was my first book by this author but definitely will not be my last. I am looking forward to reading other books by this author! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
