Publisher's Summary

Aiden Palmer, a disenchanted WWI veteran, has gone from golden boy to troublemaker since his return from Europe. Hopping from job to job, looking for meaning and adventure, he finds himself running with a rowdy new crowd that puts pressure on him to join their illegal bootlegging runs. On the night the 18th Amendment goes into affect, he reconnects with a love from his past, Grace Currie, at a prohibition ball. 

Grace McAfee Currie is a teenaged war widow. On the night the Volstead Act becomes law, she searches for Aiden Palmer, the man she’d wanted to marry three years ago. Convincing him that she still loves him is no easy task. Will they be able to outmaneuver her power-hungry brother and outrun the competition to start a new life together?

Good

This wasn't as great as the first one but it was good. The characters were well rounded. The story line was predictable. It's a cute love story. Would recommend. The narrator's voice was perfect for the story!

Short but sweet

A WW1 veteran, a WW1 widow who were both once in love and wanted to marry meet again. Aiden Palmer, finds himself jumping from job to job and Grace McAfee Currie refuses to marry yet another upstart politician her brother wants to force her to wed. Reuniting Grace convince Aiden that she still loves him and they should run away, marry and live from their families. A very sweet, short novella. The author did a wonderful job creating it. However, for me, the narrator see to be in a rush in the telling of the story.

Short and Sweet

This short audio involves two main characters Arden Palmer and Grace McAlfee Currie. Set after WWI during the Prohibition , Auden Palmer is a veteran returning to the US having been previously stationed in Europe. He is finding it difficult to return to American society. He becomes involved with a bootlegging gang while also making contact with Grace his former love interest. Grace McAlfee, a young war widow seeks to reunite with Aiden. Conflict arises as the couple is involved not only in bootlegging and interacting with criminals, but also recapturing their former love for each other. The book was a short easy listen and captures the “Second Chance Romance “ storyline. Essentially, a good read. I received access to this audio for the purpose of reviewing,however the insights and opinions were not solicited but of my own account.
