Publisher's Summary

After her father loses the family fortune in an insider-trading scheme, single mom Parker Welles is faced with some hard decisions. First order of business: go to Gideon's Cove, Maine, to sell the only thing she now owns-a decrepit house in need of some serious flipping. When her father's wingman, James Cahill, asks to go with her, she's not thrilled . . . even if he is fairly gorgeous and knows his way around a toolbox.
Having to fend for herself financially for the first time in her life, Parker signs on as a florist's assistant and starts to find out who she really is. Maybe James isn't the glib lawyer she always thought he was. And maybe the house isn't the only thing that needs a little TLC.

Great story and horrific narration.

I picked this title because I had just listened to Higgins' Catch of the Day, and truly enjoyed it. I should have given the excerpt a careful listen, but I didn't. Xe Sands, who narrated Catch of the Day, would have been a much better choice. Eyre's voice would be appropriate for some work, but I felt like I was listening to a 75 year old with a warbley voice, and could not take it. Of course, it could just be me and some people might love Eyre's voice with this novel, but I felt like I was listening to a great grandmother instead of a 35 year old woman. I bought the ebook instead, and am much happier for having done so.

pretty good...predictable....narration awful

For this one I had to speed up the narration speed due to the whine and nasal performance. Story is ok, very predictable.

I enjoyed this book, a great story about finding love in unexpected places and a mum trying to find her way after her world gets tipped up. I loved that it enabled me to find out what has happened after 'The next best thing' and 'catch of the day'. With an update on all the previous characters like Lucy, Ethan, Maggie and Malone. Definitely a good read that I will read again and recommend. xxx

female narrator sounded like a phone s*x worker...

not a bad story, but I'm sorry to say the narrator ruined it for me. the male voices also sounded silly. I am a fan of kristan higgins books and this was a typical story of hers.
