Publisher's Summary

The fourth heartwarming novel in the New York Times best-selling series about unlikely pairs learning to open themselves up to love in Mystic Creek, Oregon.

Crystal Malloy owns the beauty salon in Mystic Creek, Oregon. It took years of work to stand on her own after a difficult upbringing and to turn her fledgling enterprise into a successful business. There's never been much time for romance, but when a handsome, friendly man stops in to her salon - he's traveling through town on business - she's immediately taken with him. Their friendship quickly blossoms into romance, and the two of them manage to meet up for dates when his work brings him to town. He's honest with her from the start that as a recent widower with young children, there's no real prospect of a long-term relationship between them. Crystal never thought she would marry, so she's fine keeping things light - until the day she realizes that she's fallen in love. She can no longer imagine a future without him. Now she'll have to choose between following her heart or staying in her beloved Mystic Creek with the salon customers who have become like family to her.

The best of Ms. Anderson's!

I am so happy to have met and listened to this story of love. Also I am very glad to rate one of Ms. Anderson's books 5 stars finally. This book is truly worth listening to. I especially love Rip and Grandfather. Really looking forward to listening to the next books, and hopefully they will be included in AUDIBLE ESCAPE soon.

Another sweet installment

Loved Tanner. Wow a faithful dedicated dad and such a good man. Crystal had an uphill battle in life. It was so tragic what she endured. I wish I could shake her parents. Tuck and Essie added some wisdom and humor to this beautiful story. But I think Rip stole the show.

Spoiled rotten dog, sweet characters

I really liked this audiobook, but had a hard time accepting how rotten the dog was. I mean, the person who feeds and cares for him gets “pinched”/bitten every few steps unless she gives him a dog treat? And yet, he’s so well trained that he attacks and stops on command? Really? That aside, the characters were well developed and the story very sweet. Loved the little girl.

Spring Forward

Very disappointed in the narration! Many times narrator was speaking for a lady, yet sounded like a man! This is my very least favorite book by Catherine Anderson! Never kept my attention due to jumping from one person's to an entirely different subject!😓

My comments.

Catherine Anderson does it again, anyone reading this review who knows me in person or follows my reading habits know I am a massive fan of this author. I have enjoyed every single book I have read by her and this one was no acception, another heart warming story teary in places but powerful and beautiful. The characters as always are well developed and easy to fall in love with. Can't wait for the next offering in this series and by this author. she's a very skilled writer and I look forward to reading her books every time a new one is coming out. The Kate Turnbull has been the reader for the whole of this series and she does a fantastic job. I am already looking forward to what Catherine Anderson might have for us next.
