On her own since the age of 14, Suzanne has no intention of settling down in tiny Walton, Georgia. But to her surprise, Walton residents have a way of making even reluctant guests feel right at home.

My favorite Karen White, (so far)

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Definitely, this was a sequel to Falling Home which was also quite good. This was even better. I liked the character development, the love story, re-visiting my friends from Falling Home, the deep friendships, and character growth and development. I also fell in love with the small town and folks who made up it.

Karen White does not spend page after page on the love scenes, just enough to be interesting but not so much that you loose the story, Don't get me wrong I am a fan of Shades of Grey but many romance novels can repeat themselves so much that I want to fast forward to get back to the story.

Have you listened to any of Jennifer Van Dyke’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Great job on narration

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

The audio was hard to put down. I listened to it in my car and then did chores in the house so I could keep listening, taking it from room to room with me.

Any additional comments?

I have listened to 3 Karen White books so far and am ready to order another.

Happy Endings

I was happy to discover this sequel to Falling Home. I loved the characters in both stories & enjoyed finding out what happened to them after the first story. I'm also a sucker for happy endings. I have not read a Karen White book that wasn't awesome!

Always love Karen White's books

Once again Karen White delivered a good story, based in a clearly described Southern setting with characters that came to life.

Enjoyed returning toWalton, GA

Would you try another book from Karen White and/or Meredith Orlow?

Not as good as other Karen White books. Very predictable. I did enjoy returning to Walton, Georgia to continue with the characters.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Predictable

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

OK performance

Disappointingly predictable

I love Karen White’s Tradd Street series, but this story dragged on and on. There was no twist, no excitement. Just predictable outcomes for every storyline.

I enjoyed Meredith Orlow’s performance. The southern drawl was a bit overplayed at times, but it never took away from the overall story.

Loved it.

I love every thing by Karen White but this time I enjoyed how the kids were part of the story. I liked the small town feel of the Georgia countryside. I always appreciate a story about second chances of course!

Not my favorite Karen White

This wasn’t my favorite Karen White novel, it it was still enjoyable. Nice, light, and with a predictable happy ending.

Not her best.

I love Karen White books, but this one was not her best, The narrator's fake Southern accent was bad, and very distracting. The characters were not given enough depth, and it was hard to relate to any of the characters. Save your money.
