Publisher's Summary

On the run from the Italian mafia in New York City, feisty Caterina Campanelli travels across the country to the small town of Pendleton, Oregon, trying to hide her past while she decides what to do about her uncertain future. Seeking comfort in her cooking, she battles her attraction to one of the town's most handsome men.

Kade Rawlings is dedicated to his work as a deputy in Pendleton. Determined to remain single and unfettered, he can't seem to stay away from the Italian spitfire who rolls into town keeping secrets and making the best food he's ever eaten. Using his charm, wit, and brawn to win her trust, he may just get more than he bargained for.

    "A Great Story!"

    Caterina is a feisty Italian spitfire who must leave home and sever all ties to her family to escape the mob. She ends up in a small Oregon town, Pendleton, where she meets the local deputy, and tries to start over. Can you ever really escape from the mob though?

    I really enjoyed the story, and the narrator did a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life. I didn't realize this was book 2 in the series, but that didn't take away from the story. I certainly plan on catching up with the rest of the series.

    "Great Story!"

    Caterina is running for her life and finds herself in Pendleton, OR. Her love for cooking amazing Italian food is a welcomed new cuisine for this little Oregon town. What she does not expect though is how true the statement, "A way to a man's heart is through his stomach." is. Even though the citizens of Pendleton is loving this new food, Caterina is hiding a secret that she is terrified to let the law help her with.

    Kade is the Pendleton's deputy who has decided that having a wife is not possible due to the danger it may bring her. He cannot resist, however, the mouth-watering food that Caterina introduces him to. As he cannot get enough of the wonderful food of Pendelton's newest citizen brings, he also finds that his heart is falling for the spitfire cook who not only satisfies his physical hunger, but also his hunger for love. Kade knows she is hiding something behind her wonderful talent. Can he gain her trust even as they both clash as both personalities are as strong as the food Cat makes?

    Shanna Hatfield is a wonderful story teller. After I started this book, I found that there is a book before this one that I have not listened to, but I did not feel that I missed anything. I do think that it would be a richer story had I listened to that one first, but this is a GREAT stand alone too! I plan to listen to the first book!

    Meghan Kelly does a beautiful job narrating this book. Her characters come to life as she tells Catarina and Kade's story. I look forward to listening to more books by Megan!

    Story
    "Sweet Historical Romance Set in 1899 America"


    🍲 Catarina Campanelli is in trouble, by no fault of her own. Catarina's family sends her away – in a rather unconventional manner – to keep her safe. She lands in Pendleton Oregon, a pretty contemporary town for the year 1899.

    Catarina meets many nice people, one couple invites her to live with them while she sorts things out. It doesn't take long, Catarina becomes popular not only for her beauty but for her Italian cooking/baking skills.🍲

    Kade Rawlings, Pendleton's deputy is mesmerized by the Italian beauty (and her skills in the kitchen). Unfortunately, he knows that his life as a lawmen is a solitary one and tries to admire her from afar, but will he be able to stay the distance?

    It took me a little while to figure out the exact circumstance that forced Catarina out West and living a life on the run, but I caught up. I would be running too!

    This was a lovely historical romance. There are lots of sweet moments, romantic and otherwise. They are tastefully done leaving the listener to paint the picture.

    It has been a while I have listened to a book performed by Meghan Kelly. She is one of my top favorite female narrators. She did a wonderful job of portraying each character, describing scenery as well as tell the story. Her strong yet husky voice is unique. She knows her strengths and uses them to make the characters individuals. I have been missing out.

    Overall: a sweet, historical romance with an Italian twist :-)

    "Very enjoyable"

    Caterina

    I listened to the audio book version. Really enjoyed the narrator, she did a good job of bringing all the characters to life, male and female. Caterina has to live home for her safety. She ends up in Pendleton and makes a lot of friends there and meets Kade. Really enjoyable book.

    Story
    "Mostly charming listen..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If you like historical romances and small town life in the late 1800's or early 1900's then this story might be for you.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Honestly, I didn't like the main character. She really got on my nerves and I found her to be annoying. There were times when I seriously thought to myself, I hope Cade finds someone else, because the 2 of them together sounds like a lifetime of arguments.


    Which character – as performed by Meghan Kelly – was your favorite?

    I liked Ondy and actually all of the men's voices were good too. I didn't like Caterina's voice at all.


    Do you think Caterina needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I don't think so.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration was good, I just didn't like the main character.

    Story
    "Cute story, easy listen set in 1899"

    Caterina Campanelli escapes New York and the threat of marriage to a horrible man connected to the mob. She ends up in Pendleton, Oregon where she meets Kade Rawlings, a local lawman, and his brother and sister-in-law, with whom Caterina ends up staying with. Though neither of them are looking for a spouse, their attraction is obvious and their romance natural. Thugs from New York are scouring the country for her to return her back to the man who is demanding to become her husband, but thankfully Kade is able to keep them off her trail for quite some time. Is it a fairly predictable story? Yes. It follows the typical storyline of many western historical romances, but this one is well written with likable characters and a well moving story.

    As far as the narration goes, I think Meghan Kelly did an excellent job. She had distinct voices for all of the various characters that were easy to understand and also differentiated the male and female voices really well. I would absolutely listen to another one of her narrations anytime.

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.
