    "Two Souls Seeking Love"
    What did you love best about Under the Sun?

    The friendship and eventual love that developed between Jackson and Tracey


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The first time Tracey and Jackson were intimate


    Any additional comments?

    The characters were well developed and it was a sweet, touching tale of two people whose happiness was long overdue. Jackson put his life on hold after the death of his fiance and their baby. Tracey put her happiness on the back burner to care for her dying grandmother. It just goes to show that good things happen to good people.....

    Story
    "Short and Sweet!"

    Novellas a tricky, always want to make sure the plot and characters are well developed. Jude Ouvrard has given us both with this short romance. There is a lot packed into this story, I could relate to the Alzheimer's grandmother and taking care of her. The portrayal of this is very realistic with the emotional journey it takes you on. Tracey is now at the beach, giving herself time after her grandmother dies, when her next door neighbor Jackson comes into her life. Their story of how they come together and heal each other is warm and affectionate. I love these two, Jackson has a way that makes you feel his love and Tracey has so much to give and is willing to move her life forward. Together they are sweet and loving. I especially loved the tie the two found with Tracey's grandmother and her muffins..who knew muffins could bring love?

    Ann Bumbak gives a wonderful portrayal of this story. She is perfect for a short romance with the warmth in her voice that gives you that heartfelt feeling.

    Story
    "ONE CLICHÉ AFTER ANOTHER"

    I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

    First, my normal apology because it's very difficult to execute a good story that reads in under 2 hours. Now, all I can say about "Under The Sun" is that, IMHO, it's stale and cliché-ridden. Although well written, the dialogs and situations are unoriginal. I'd like to continue to review Ouvrard's work and discover that her books are normally better.

    Ann Bumbak's narration was somewhat uncomfortable. There were tiny pauses after some words that interrupted the sentence's flow. As far as her voice quality, it was feminine, soft and melodic. Her inflections were good, too. I couldn't get over the wee little apneas...

    Hands deep in my pockets...

    "Quick sweet story"

    Tracey arrives at her grandmother's cabin in Wells Beach, needing some recovery time after extended care and subsequent death of her grandmother. She runs into her neighbor, Jackson, on the first day. Jackson remembers Tracey from years earlier when she was at the cabin with her gmom...he extends friendship and things take off from there. Jackson had his own experience with grief and helps Tracey to explore and heal. There is an HEA.
