Publisher's Summary

In The Deadline, Andy Friessen has packed up everything and moved his family two states away to Montana to protect his wife Laura, his newborn babies, and his stepson Gabriel from the threats of his mother. What Andy doesn't know is that they'll soon face a new threat, one he never saw coming.

Gabriel is sick, and a trip to the doctor confirms Laura and Andy's worst nightmare: Without a lifesaving transplant, their son won't survive.

What Andy doesn't count on, as he tracks down the young man who fathered Gabriel, as well as Laura's estranged parents, is that a whole host of problems are about to be unleashed.

Love this book.

This is such a sweet and tender romance. Not just about the love between a man and a woman but also the love of parents for their child, biological or not. The narrator is very good.

The Deadline

If you could sum up The Deadline in three words, what would they be?

I just finished The Deadline, the first in The Friessens: A New Beginning series, and loved it . The emotional struggle was not to be frown upon. Great audiobook and goor narrator.

This was an okay story.

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

I most likely wouldn't recommend this story because, in my opinion, it was boring. It's like the new family get to their new town and house and the day they get there they find out that Gabriel has leukemia. Besides going back and forth to the hospital, nothing was really happening. <br/><br/>I didn’t read the first story in this series. On that note, the main character is so annoying, needy, clingy, jealous and always seems to be either uncomfortable or embarrassed about something. She’s constantly getting upset whenever Andy decides something without informing her of it first, yet, she’s always constantly looking to him to make things better. What does she expect? Yes, she’s young but she has been through a lot: having to leave her parent’s house, take care of a newborn, and provided for herself and her baby. How did she even make it as far as she did; that’s the question I want to know. Most of the time she doesn’t seem to really have much going on in her brain. She’s always admiring Andy’s good looks and the fact that he’s a good father. How old is Andy exactly? And why did they have sex without protection if she’s so much younger than him? What drew him to her? Was it just because she obviously needed help?

What do you think your next listen will be?

Well...since I have book 2 of this series, I figured I would give it a try.

What about Valerie Gilbert’s performance did you like?

I'm a fan of Valerie Gilbert. I've listened to several of her audiobooks and she's definitely grown on me.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Probably not.
