I sit here sobbing, my heart hurting and filled with joy for Avery & Alena at the same time. I have to start by saying that with the exception of the rating with stars at the end of books, (I mean, who would care what I think of a book... Right?) I have never left a review of a book. But I have never felt so compelled to do so as right now.
I do tend to "love" almost all the books in this genre after I've finished them. But this book is BY FAR the best I've read by Georgia Beers! Idk if it was the fact that she narrated it herself or not, (which I do prefer to hear books read by the author ... Stories seem to have that, idk... lil somethin extra that you don't get when it's not read by the one who wrote it. Even the best of performers) but I have read/listened to all of Ms. Beers novels on Audible thus far & this book is...really wonderful.
Georgia Beers writes & in this case narrates in such a way that I felt I was IN the story. Maybe its how she creates real life characters with everyday conflicts & combine that with a storyline that you don't necessarily see coming a mile away, which can be difficult in this genre at times.
In my opinion this the BEST novel I've read so far by Georgia Beers, & I said that same thing last week when I finished "Olive Oil & White Bread."

At first, I was hesitant, but I like other Georgia Beers books so I gave it a shot. The narrating was different than I'm used to, and I almost stopped listening because of it. Once I accepted that just because the narration was different than I was used to, it didn't mean it was bad. In fact, it was great and I was so caught up with the characters that I found myself laughing and crying with them. The ending was bitter sweet, but felt very real. This was the most realistic love story in this genre that I've ever read.

The author uses the word snorted (and variants thereof) LIBERALLY. It grated but that's just me.
Also a lot of stating the obvious when dialogue had already done it's job.
Whilst this isn't a literary work of art... it's a sweet little love story all the same.

I have to say that this was one of the most enjoyable books I've listened to in the last few weeks can't wait for the next book
I have had this title in my library for a little while and didn't get to it straight away as the synopsis was less than thrilling to be honest. But lets face it, it's Georgia and she always does right by us. I was also thrilled to note that she is the narrator and did a wonderful job and i have to say it made it a little extra special as i knew each tone and voice was presented as the author intended. It really did make a difference.
What a wonderful story of the journey for these two girls to find their happy ending (no spoiler intended - you knew it was going to be) I love the honesty between Avery and Alena and Georgia drawing you into their world so completely. I could be biased as i'm sitting here in tears having just finished it, but not needing more as the story was so well done and well rounded. I have laughed out loud, giggled, sympathised and cried through this one, Georgia is just that good at sweeping us along with her.
WELL WORTH THE CREDIT. I will read this one again and again. Thanks Georgia Beers.
