Editorial Reviews

"Wiggs' thoroughly captivating tale draws listeners into her characters' lives and minds in a way that makes them real and true and unforgettable." (Booklist)

Publisher's Summary

If you trust your heart, you'll always know who you are…Each summer, Kate Livingston returns to her family's lakeside cottage, a place of simple living and happy times - a place where she hopes her son, Aaron, can blossom. But her quiet life gets a bit more interesting with the arrival of a mysterious new neighbor, JD Harris.

JD has a good reason for being secretive. In a moment of sheer bravery, the Washington, D.C., paramedic prevented a terrible tragedy - and became a national hero. He's hardly able to remember who he was before the media frenzy…until he escapes to this lovely, remote part of the Northwest.

Now Kate and Aaron have rekindled the joy of small pleasures and peace, something JD thought he'd never have again. But how long will his blissful anonymity last before reality comes banging at his door?

Unimpressed

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

no, unless you are into this sort of book. Pretty much they are all the same, just the names and settings change.

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

totally expected

Did Emily Durante do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

not bad

What would have made this romance irresistible?

I'm not sure.

Any additional comments?

If you've read one romance, you've read them all. There was nothing stand out about this one.

Well worth the credit.

I enjoy Susan Wiggs and this listen was no exception. It has it all: good character development, a strong plot and an engaging story line.

Only so so book, made worse by the narration

The narration is robotic at best, made it very hard to listen to a book that was "just ok" to start with.
