Publisher's Summary

Hannah Hudson has had a rough start to the year. Returning home to London from her magical holiday in Norway, still on a high after meeting the wonderful Kristine, her newfound happiness is dealt a crushing blow when she discovers that her ex has been stealing from her and she is going to lose her business. A letter from an American lawyer throws her an unexpected lifeline, informing her that she’s inherited a house and a restaurant in Presley, Louisiana, from her biological mother who gave her up for adoption at birth. 

Meanwhile back in Covington, nothing ever changes in Kristine Miller’s life. She’s grown tired of her job at the local bank, and she’s reluctant to go back to dating, unable to get Hannah, who has gone silent on her, out of her mind. 

When Hannah suddenly shows up in Kristine’s life again there is no denying that destiny has a plan for them, but Hannah’s life is in London and Kristine’s is deeply attached to the beautiful South. As Hannah searches for the story behind her Southern roots, can they overcome the challenge of distance to give themselves another shot at love? Second chances are rare, and you can’t question fate when it keeps drawing you back together....

Sweet Sequel

Great sequel to Northern Lights and the continuation of the story of Hannah and Kristine set this time in the hot Louisiana summer. Hannah is coming of fresh betrayal and loss though her chemistry with Kristine is still right on point. It was good to see these two back together again. Addison Barnes once again brings Hannah and Kristine to life wonderfully.

Across the Pond for family or love?

The all inspiring story of love to behold. The family she never knew she existed of the love she found across the lights. I was just in awe of how much this felt like me in this story of how true to life you could relate in someone life. The story takes you in trials and trubliations.

Great story!

I absolutely loved this book. The story was awesome and there was a wide variety of characters. The narrator did a fabulous job with the different accents, which really brought the story to life. Highly recommend!

Still the same dam election the

Middle of the room. And the narrator could use some time down south talking to Southerners. Other then that I still love the story and am glad I listened to it.

Wonderful story and characters, great narration

Hannah and Kristine are definitely one of my favorite couples. I loved them in Norway (Northern Lights), I love them in Louisiana. I took my time listening to the end of the book as I was not ready to say goodbye.

There’s a lot more happening in this second book than in the first one, which was basically two people falling in love in an extraordinary place (which goes to prove that stories don’t have to be very elaborate to be wonderful). Having come back to London to find her world upside down, Hannah finds out her birth mother has left her property in Louisiana, which also happens to be where Kristine lives. The falling in love continues in very sweet ways, and both women come to realize they can expect much more from life than what they’ve had so far. I loved how one grew into a family (or the idea of a family) she’d never thought she had while the other found her way away from hers, or at least separate from hers, putting her own story above others’ expectations.

I also loved the narrator’s accents, they were perfect.
