Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the world of Whispering Bay, where smart heroines and hot heroes collide to find their happily-ever-afters!

Lauren Donalan was once Whispering Bay's golden girl - the rich, bubbly blonde cheerleader who married the high school football star. When her mediocre marriage falls apart, she returns home and starts a vintage clothing business, determined to prove she's more than just a pretty face with a trust fund.

Nate Miller may have been a nerd in high school, but now he has a beautiful girlfriend and is set to take over Doc Morrison's medical practice. Still, the good folks of Whispering Bay find his no-nonsense approach more than a little unsettling, leaving his future in town a great big question mark. And things go even further downhill when his well-intentioned marriage proposal goes awry.

Lauren doesn't need a man to complete her, yet when she finds herself set up on a date with Nate, she can't help but notice how sexy and confident he is. In fact, every time the former introvert kisses her, she sees fireworks. But, only a big love will make Lauren change her mind about commitment. As Nate attempts to win Lauren over, a real estate co-op threatens Lauren's business - and Nate's ex still has a thing or two to say about their previous relationship. Now Lauren has to decide to go big or go home, in business, as well as in love.

Delight story that gives you lots of laughs

Any additional comments?

What a truly wonderful emotional read that really grabs you and doesn’t let you go. It is a heartbreaking story of a family dealing the best way they know how when Lauren father gets Alzheimer's. A story about finding yourself and what you want to do with your life after making so many mistakes. I really loved how this story is put together pulling on your heartstrings why making you smile. I got such a kick out of the items she has in her vintage clothing store, they gave me many laughs throughout the story. Each book in this series keeps getting better and better I have trouble waiting to pick up the next one. When Lauren and Nate met up with friends both find they are attracted to each other. Both have past issues and relationships that bring them home. When Lauren is setting up on a date by her mother with a man that is less than desirable Nate comes to her rescuer. In his past he has come off as stuffy and then there is the youtube video which leaves him less than pleasing.


Ms. Robins narration was outstanding from her many different character voices to the emotions she gives them. She does bring this story to life giving you lots of laughs and chuckles along with some sad and trying times. There are no repeats of wording or any volume changes, if any breaks were taken I could not tell. This is a very clear audio that you will get lost in. Her female voices are just as good as her male ones you always know just what they are feeling and going through. She has no trouble carrying off her deep male voices giving just the right tone to them. I found her characters voices and tones to fit each character to a T. I really could hear the pain, sorrow, happiness, confusion and thrills in each characters voice. The narrator’s performance was outstanding giving a very realistic feel to the audio. There were times I laughed very hard and other times I was almost brought to tears. This is the first I have listened to this narrator and cannot wait to listen to more of her work.

The author brings you a delightful well written story that at times is very painful it is a wonderful story that unfolds with humor, passion where you might not think there would be. I found it to be very realistic and believable with characters that are down to earth every day people with the same issues we all have. It is wonderful to see how their lives entwine with all the people in town and their families. I just love this town and its people. I liked how Lauren found her way to her dream business as well as the conflict between her and Nate. The ways these two come together was very natural and enjoyable. Nate’s girlfriend is something else which will leave you with your mouth hung open at the things that come out of her mouth. I just fell in love with Lauren’s family from her very busy body mother to her delightful warm and loving father. Nate’s family is wonderful with their warm humor to the way they take him in hand and metal in his life. The story has soul, with wonderful meaning, so many people will be able to relate to it in so many different ways. I fell in love with the plot, the characters from the first page all the way to the last. You will find many hours of enjoyment with a book you will have a hard time putting down. Ms. Geraci fits a lot into the read never leaving the reader behind. It was written in a way that you can relate and understand all the issues why you chuckle. What a delightful cute read that I am sure you will love as much as I have. I have read and also listened to the audio, both are wonderful but I have to say I enjoyed the audio more. The narrator fits so well with this story and really brings it to life.

I really recommend this delightful heartwarming romance. It is so wonderful I picked it as one of my favorite reads for 2017.

Good

I really enjoy this author. Her writing is superlative and I enjoy how she incorporates everyday encounters into her writing., i.e. situations and concerns which cause most to struggle. Best of all there are so many chuckles & laugh out loud moments! 😆

I loved the MMC but not so much the FMC... who personified the weak dumb southern Belle cliché. However, there is some character development for her towards the end so happy to see that come around.

narration is 5 star!

Loved this Audible.

I loved everything about this audible program. The story was really good, and so was the narrator. I am very familiar with Carly Robins as a narrator, and like her performances. However, Maria Geraci was not an author whose name I recognized. I am going to add her to my list of authors to check out in the future, based on how much I enjoyed this book.

Excellent Story

4.25 Stars for Me

I really liked this book and well-rounded character development. Both MCs made each other better people and while the attraction was instant, the romance was built on time together and not just lust as so many stories are. Nothing drives me crazy more than an H/h fight that is resolved by time in the sheets.

The development and growth of our H in this story shows the true power of listening which is a lost art today. The h made some recommendations that the H decided to try and seeing the communities reaction was priceless.

I'm hooked, well worth the time

I am not a fan of romance novels, but stumbled into the Wispering Bay series and am glad I did. I have gone through all available books in less than a week and am looking forward to the next release.
The stories are well written creating a desire to be immersed in the lives of the characters. I was surprised to find that I was genuinely interested in what would happening next. The stories ring true and real based on my life experiences.
Finally, I appreciate the elegance of the writing, and the superb narration. I highly recommend the series
