Publisher's Summary

A second chance born of love.
Pat Corrigan and Edgerton "Edge" Winters were ready to start a family - or so Pat thought. At the last minute, Edge got cold feet and fled. Pat didn't bother telling him the conception had already gone through and little Emma was on her way. He didn't want a relationship based on obligation. He'd rather raise his daughter on his own.
Nine years later, Emma and her Poppy are doing fine. Edge isn't. He realizes what he threw away by leaving, and he's back to turn his life around and reclaim his family. It'll take a lot to prove to Pat that he's a new man, and even if Edge succeeds, the secret Pat has hidden for years might shatter their dreams all over again.

Good story overall

What made the experience of listening to Poppy's Secret the most enjoyable?

I enjoy Andrew Grey and even though this is a shorter book I still enjoyed it very much. I liked the way the author didn't slam the two main characters together and bam its perfect. The story was well written. The narrator did a very good job.


Which character – as performed by John Solo – was your favorite?

This is a new to me narrator. I enjoyed him very much. He had both men perfectly and even the female characters worked. That's not something you find every time.

Nice, kinda meh.

I think I may be in the minority here – but I wasn’t a big fan of this story.

First, I didn’t think Pat’s devotion to Poppy (total abstinence!) and lack of a social life felt healthy and I wondered at his inability to even date in all that time.

Second, I really didn’t like Edge and his reasons for leaving nor his making Pat feel bad for his “secret”. I just never warmed to Edge very well.

Third, John Solo, though he did a fine job didn’t do much to make me fall in love with this story. He is a capable narrator and the sound quality was good but I didn’t find anything “swoon-worthy” in his performance.

Though it was as predictably sweet as I’d have ever wanted (or expected given the Dreamspun line) I didn’t love this. It was good and entertaining and fans of the trope and the author will probably be well pleased.
