Walking in someone else's shoes
Yes. I like the way this author moves so-called opposing characters into each others lives.
Tumbling, also by Dianne McKinney Whetstone.
I have not. She makes you care about the characters you're hearing about.
No. But I did thoroughly enjoy it.

It was worth one listen, but I doubt that I'll listen to this story again.
I didn't expect a lot of drama, but this story kind of just went on and on with no real climax. I kept waiting for the big moment, and by the time I realized the climax had taken place, the book was over. I think the author put too much into the build-up, and left a lot missing from the ending. This was not a favorite, but... I liked the characters. That kept me interested.
