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!

Couldn’t get past the first hour

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

LOVED this story and characters

This book had so may funny lines I found myself laughing out loud. I usually don't like the Christian literature, but I loved this book. I grew very attached to the characters. Loved the performance. Our narrator really captured each character perfectly. Refreshing book without a lot of darkness and bad language. If you just want a fun book on vacation...this will keep you laughing and entertained. The story moves along pretty well and kept my interest the whole way through. Not preachy.
