Publisher's Summary

Andie Miller is ready to move on with her life. She wants to marry her fiancé and leave behind everything in her past, especially her ex-husband, North Archer. But when Andie tries to gain closure with him, he asks one final favor of her. A distant cousin has died and left North the guardian of two orphans who have driven away three nannies already, and things are getting worse. He needs someone to take care of the situation, and he knows Andie can handle anything....

When Andie meets the two children, she realizes the situation is much worse than she feared. Carter and Alice aren’t your average delinquents, and the creepy old house where they live is being run by the worst housekeeper since Mrs. Danvers. Complicating matters is Andie’s fiancé’s suspicion that this is all a plan by North to get Andie back. He may be right, because Andie’s dreams have been haunted by North since she arrived at the old house. And that’s not the only haunting....

Then her ex-brother-in-law arrives with a duplicitous journalist and a self-doubting parapsychologist, closely followed by an annoyed medium, Andie’s tarot card–reading mother, her avenging ex-mother-in-law, and her jealous fiancé. Just when Andie’s sure things couldn’t get more complicated, North arrives to make her wonder if maybe this time things could just turn out differently....

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have gotten rid of about 100


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    She had a great way of sounding unimpressed when the character needed to...

    What would have made Maybe This Time better?

    This was the worst. I hate to sound negative, but what a chore getting through this book! If I wasn't so cheap, I would have stopped listening! ;) Alice said, Carter said, Alice said, Carter said!!!! Ugh - the worst book - cliche storyline and so poorly written - am not even sure if there was an editor on board with this book. Don't waste your money, please.

    Story
    "Lame and insipid"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story -- interesting at first, but then it devolved into pap.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not a Jennifer Crusie book, that is for certain


    What three words best describe Angela Dawe???s voice?

    Okay, kids voices a bit over done


    What character would you cut from Maybe This Time?

    Just about all of them, especially the ghosts


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste a credit....this will be on the "extreme sale" list in the future.

    "Will look for more of Jennifer Cursie's books!"

    Very entertaining. Was hesitant to order based on the description. Was pleasantly surprised when I finally began to listen to this book. It was enjoyable and the reader did a great job. The story and characters kept my attention and I looked forward to my drive to and from work so I could listen more. I always hesitate with ghost books but this was very good.

    "fun read"

    Ms Crusie's books are fun to read. This book was the perfect blend of intrigue and humor. And Ms Dawe is my FAVORITE narrator. Give this book a try!

    "Great read!"

    Jennifer Crusie is her usual entertaining self, and Angela Dawe is great as a narrator. She brought me completely into the story, and I didn't break out of it once due to bad reading. I'll be looking out for her again.
    It's an awesome book. I'd buy it again.

    "Dug it to death!!"

    The humor and connections within this book makes the entire store work. I laughed. I cheered and I teared up. Great job Ms. Cruise. Wonderful narration work Ms. Dawe. I'm a long time fan of Lorelei King who do great character work. I'm now a fan of Angela Dawe who did great work with this book. You made this project sound like a old radio theater show. BRAVO!!

    "Two turns of the screw, no three turns!"

    Of all the classic novels I would expect to be turned into a contemporary romance novel, the Turn of the Screw is probably one of the last, with all its gothic Freudian overtones, allusions to child molestation and actual child death. Maybe this Time is a much, much lighter retelling; the story is not told in first person like Turn, but in an occasionally shifting limited third person perspective, so it comes down definitely on one side of the 'issue.' I was totally caught by surprise by the plot; I had no idea what this novel was when I bought it. I was a little nervous once I figured out what was going on, but I ended up really liking it for two reasons. One, the novel is a really good romance novel on its own with elements that are original and fun, like the dueling mothers-in-law; the god-awful tv reporter; the allied medium and ghost skeptic; and a really appealing heroine. Two, while the novel comes down on one side of the 'issue,' there are parts that kind of pay homage to the darker and more ambiguous side of Turn and makes you get on the side of the author. It's kind of like she winks at you and says 'yes, this story could be told another way, but true love and banana bread are so much more fun.'
