Publisher's Summary

Darek Christiansen is almost a dream bachelor - oldest son in the large Christiansen clan, heir to their historic Evergreen Lake Resort, and doting father. But he's also wounded and angry since the tragic death of his wife, Felicity. No woman in Deep Haven dares come near. New assistant county attorney Ivy Madison simply doesn't know any better when she bids on Darek at the charity auction. Nor does she know that when she crafted a plea bargain three years ago to keep Jensen Atwood out of jail and in Deep Haven fulfilling community service, she was releasing the man responsible for Felicity's death.

All Ivy knows is that the Christiansens feel like the family she's always longed for. And once she gets past Darek's tough exterior, she finds a man she could spend the rest of her life with. Which scares her almost as much as Darek learning of her involvement in his wife's case. Caught between new love and old grudges, Darek must decide if he can set aside the past for a future with Ivy - a future more and more at risk as an approaching wildfire threatens to wipe out the Christiansen resort and Deep Haven itself.

Finally!!!!

A decent storyline, great narrator, and not a story you would be ashamed to have your mom or child over hear you listening to. I loved this author and will continue with the next book in the series. Thank you Susan May Warren!

It was okay

This book had two stories in one. There is Darek and Ivy then Jensen and Clair. The narrator was just okay - Darek's voice was a little weird for me.

Excellent book!

It’s rare that I can say a book is absolutely excellent but this one is! Not too much or too little of anything. Intriguing. I couldn’t stop listening! Listened to the whole thing in just a couple of days.
Thank you for a great story!

A nice Story

This was a really nice love story. it was a very spiritual book which really isn't what I prefer. there are no hot and steamy parts but if you are religious and want a very nice,clean book. you will really like this BOOK. I thought the narrator did a very nice job.

I'm going to reread this

I really loved this book! I wasn't sure I would like it from the description. I don't care for books where the main person has lost their spouse. If I was in that situation I would unintentionally compare my new boyfried or husband to the one I lost. BUT this book surprised me. I loved the story, the characters, and the portrayal of the small town life. I have every intention of reading every book in this series and I would totally recommend this to a friend.

I enjoyed it

Clever weaving grace and forgiveness messages into the story, reminding me of my spiritual side that gets lost in today's world.

loved story but did not like readers voice

If you could sum up Take a Chance on Me in three words, what would they be?

forgiveness, redemption, second-chances

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jenson

How could the performance have been better?

reader with a softer, less raspy voice

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

when forgiveness happens

Any additional comments?

there were 2 spots that the author should have elaborated on a little more and given the reader what they were waiting for instead of just leaving it up to their imagination. I really liked this book but the reader's voice annoyed me.

Narrarator sounds constipated

Would you recommend Take a Chance on Me to your friends? Why or why not?

I might recommend the actual book, but not this audio book.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrators voice for the main male character sounded constipated the entire time. It was VERY annoying.

Was Take a Chance on Me worth the listening time?

Not at all.

Any additional comments?

I think the female main character could have done way better than the male main character.
