One of My Repeats

I highly recommend this book. The characters are true characters. They remind me of the places and people of my growing up years. Listen for the laughter, and the the soul stretching and the tears.

Great story and great narration

I loved this book! Funny, witty, romantically, but just a good hometown story of a Central Texas community. Thank you Lisa Wingate and Joanna for your story and narration! Looking forward to book 2!

Kept my attention throughout

Lisa Wingate is a wonderful story telling. She understands human nature and today’s culture. This story spoke to me because if the small town I grew up in. Her depiction of the local characters were spot on!

Too corny

I like Lisa Wingate, but I could barely get through two hours of this one. Way too corny. I think she does serious drama much better than the light-hearted writing she tried here.

Good!

The narrator is great in this story and so well on all of the voices. There’s a lot of humor in this book, and the book is clean. The only thing I wish for is that things would’ve been a little more wrapped up in the ending or that there would’ve been an epilogue. Maybe some will carry over into the next story but it doesn’t look like it from the description. But the story and characters are definitely entertaining.

Couldn’t get past the first hour

It was like listening to a Carol Burnett show. Irritating to listen to. Not happy.
