Publisher's Summary

Twenty-four-year-old truck stop waitress and single mother Catherine Wright has simple goals: to give her five-year-old daughter a happy life and to never again be the talk of the town in Balsam, Pennsylvania (population 3,000 outside of tourist season).

And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed date, Catherine saves a man's life. It isn't until after the police have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has rescued: Brett Madden, hockey icon and media darling.

Catherine has already had her 15 minutes of fame, and the last thing she wants is to have her past dragged back into the spotlight, only this time on a national stage. So she hides her identity. It works. For a time.

But when she finds the man she saved standing on her doorstep, desperate to thank her, all that changes. There's an immediate connection, and it's more electric than the bond of two people who endured a traumatic event. It's something neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn't sure she can handle, something she is afraid to trust.

Because how long can an extraordinary man like Brett be interested in an ordinary woman like Catherine...before the spark fades?

    "To Save a Stranger"

    I have read most of the author's books and she has always chosen her narrators well. I was disappointed with this narrator. I believe the audio version of this book would have had a different feel with the perfect narrator. I should have read this book. This is a feel-good story about a young woman who is strong willed and passionate about what she believes.She saves a man from a burning car wreck and her life as she has known it, changes in ways that fight with her personal beliefs. The author does a good job letting the reader feel this young woman's pain about her past as she is put in the spotlight. For fans of K A Tucker, I would recommend reading this one.

    "Disappointed"

    It started slow, but then got more interesting, but the ending left much to be desired.

    "Sad? Depressed? Need a happy ending?"

    This is your book. Let's just say that you have had a rough day, you have pms, and you just watched (or read) a story about puppies with diseases, starving children, or the sad state of our environment and you just can't stop crying. This book is a positive breath of fresh air. Blatantly and non apologetically a Cinderella story. It was the pick me up that I needed and it will be for you too!! The main characters are well developed and easy to connect with.

    "Loved it!"

    KA Tucker makes people believe that fairytales can come true. I have loved all the books I've read of hers. I look forward to reading more.

    "Liked the story"
    What three words best describe Shayna Thibodeaux’s performance?

    I don't have 3 words. I thought that her voice sounded too old for the main character and that she did a much better job of voicing the secondary characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the story but found the (main character) narration distracting. It took me a while to get into it but once I did, I was able to overlook my issue with the narration.

    "Addicting"

    I love this author. This book was different from her other books but no less awesome. I love when there are kids in books and I fell in love with this one so easily. If you are looking for low angst and a great story then this is the book for you.

    "Starts out slow but...."

    Starts out painfully slow but then gets really good. You need to stick with it.

    "Had potential but no pay off"

    Oh, sheesh... Such a good premise, but poor delivery in the sense that the story was basically one big boring self loathing monologue.... Good Lord, after the 10th time we heard about the main characters flaws, so we have to be tortured with it for another 4 hours of it. MOVE on and get some more material... waste of money.
