True love wins all

In this audiobook we have two main stories. The on-off love story of Violet and Miles and a kidnapping. So of course there will be two villains instead of one this time.
I especially loved the way young Zoe had her own little protector. Very cute. And it just goes to show that true love wins all.
The stories are clever, easy to listen to, interesting and well written. Scott Michael has an unusual voice and does justice to this audiobook.
So, kudu's to both Barbara Goss and Scott Michael
The audiobook version was provided by the author at no cost and this is my honest and unbiased review.my honest and unbiased review.

True love always wins out in the end. Violet has to go through many struggles before she realizes that the heart always recognizes your one true love. This series of books and author never let's you down. Fantastic!!

Eyes Bigger Than Stomach?

Violet has found love but, in a rather modern conflict for its era but indicative of the strength of the woman, has been offered a job as a teacher (the calling she's yearned for) elsewhere and wants to take it. Miles' own career is taking off locally and he reluctantly agrees to a long distance romance. What he fears becomes reality as the fickleness of youth pushes Violet's exploring nature into an attraction with an older man and fellow teacher who has his own past and burdens. This love triangle results in some unusual actions and reactions and there are some side issues with other characters whose stories were told in previous volumes of this series. Because of the interrelationships among the characters, reading through the series will provide a depth of community and continuity, but this story stands well on its own.

I had the joy of listening to the well-narrated AUDIObook so the drama unfolded like a radio play. Since I don't do spoilers, you will have to read this for yourself to see with whom Violet chooses to make her life.

Hope

I enjoyed listening to the book. Miles had loved Violet for 3 years, even though Violet broke up with Miles he still loves her. Violet was attacked twice by the same man, Miles saves her both times.

Shadow of Hope

A fantastic continuation of The Shadow Series, that can also be enjoyed as a stand alone story.

I really enjoyed Miles and Violet's story. Barbara Goss delivers another wonderful tale.

Shadow Of Hope

Another great book in the series.
Reconnect with some old favourites and Miles & Violet have a chance at a HEA, but not without a little heartbreak.
Narrator did a great job in sharing the story.

Great read

Any additional comments?

Shadow of Hope was another great read by Barbara Goss. Violet is set to marry Miles, but after meeting Gavin she isn't sure of her love for Miles. After breaking off her engagement to Miles things start going wrong. I can't wait to read more by Barbara Goss.

Another Good Story

I got this book via audiobook boom. This book is a stand-alone but is also a part of a series. This author knows how to complete a story yet give the reader the knowledge that there are more books to be read. Violet and Miles have been secondary characters in all of the other books but this is their story. The book address issues that women and em faced during that time. Attempted rape is one of those issues. It is done in a way that shows how God can heal even the most broken person. The narrator seemed to strain on some of the voices which is not the usual style of these books. It is still a beautiful book and well developed. Some parts seemed rushed but they did not take away from the overall story.

Not as good as Shadow of second Chance

I liked it to begin with but when the book progress I found that I did not like the characters as much as I thought I did. I also did not believe in Gavins problem. If he did have a problem like this then he would have had a bit more of a past.
Violet I did not like at all. I found her to be selfish and naive. I did not believe in her love in Miles. When she broke up with him she did not feel anything! If she truly loved him but was confused she should have felt some, like, uncertainty, at least. As for miles, well he just gave up! What kind of love is that! If he truly loved her he would have kept trying to win her over, but he just gave up.
As you can see this is not my favourite book, but I did like Shadow of second chance where we meet some of the characters from this book.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
