Publisher's Summary

Devastating secrets tear two families apart in this acclaimed novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods
For ten years Emily Dobbs and Marcie Carter have been the closest of friends. They've raised their kids together, shared joy and heartache, exchanged neighborhood gossip over tea. But when Marcie's son, now a college freshman sports star, is arrested for date rape, the bond between the families could be shattered forever.
As the Carters try to deal with the unthinkable, Emily discovers her daughter has been hiding a terrible secret...a secret that threatens the futures of both families. Recently divorced, Emily struggles to keep it all together - to support her terrified daughter, to maintain her friendship with Evan's mother and to have faith in the detective who could change all of their lives.
When things seem darkest, both she and Marcie discover that sometimes the first step toward a better future is mending fences with the past.

Not sure what I'm missing...

I'm surprised at my disappointment in this book, as I was sold on this new author by multiple 4+ star audio books. I'm not the person who has to finish a book once I start, so I did not finish this, but I did listen to quite a bit before deciding to return it.

My main issues were the narrator and authenticity of character behavior. While the narrator definitely wasn't the worse I've ever heard, and this fact alone didn't completely turn me off from the book, I was annoyed by the voice change when reading dialogue by the male characters. It was very chees

Predictable

Would you try another book written by Sherryl Woods or narrated by Tanya Eby?

No I found the storyline far too predictable and way too saccharine

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Give the characters a more believable storyline. A handsome man wouldn't hang around to be insulted and ignored to that extent the teenagers were far too needy

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Not sure really, the whole storyline became boring ,was looking forward to it ending so that I could start another book

Did Mending Fences inspire you to do anything?

No

Very Disappointing... what has happened to Sherryl Wood

Mother becomes adolescent and raped child becomes the mother in turmoil ? A nonsensical subplot. Not easy to get into this or to suspend belief. I wonder who wrote this for Sherryl.
