At 37% I was wondering what this book was and why anyone would write it. Sandra is so crybaby-ish. She was stupid enough to remarry her ex-husband and when it doesn’t work out again she wants to blame everyone but herself. So, she leaves Trent and goes home to her parents and her father has dementia and her mother is a biotch. Her parents are retiring to Florida and the mom doesn’t seem to care about Sandra. She just wants her out of the house by the time the new owners take over. What? Of course Sandra loses all the cash she got from the sale of her car so she has to sleep in her dad’s car that the mom gave her. This chick had a perfectly good place to go but she thought she was too good to house sit for her aunt, until she had no choice. This book just went on and on with poor-me attitudes and bad decisions.
Yeah, I can’t finish this book. It’s all about the emotional crap her husband put her through the first time and she divorced him then married him again because she thought she could help him. Really? It’s too silly, Sandra is too silly. There’s a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews on Goodreads but this book is definitely NOT for me.
So, no romance, no nothing up until 51% when I quit.
As to the narration: It surprises me that in 2017 a female narrator still doesn’t lower her voice when a man is speaking. Shannon McManus is a narrator I will probably not listen to again. I can’t stand when a man sounds like a girl. That’s not my kind of listen.

Any additional comments?
The main female character was so stubborn and stupid that I just couldn't even finish listening to it. As I heard her making one bad decision after another I just couldn't stand it. She accuses her mother and father of not having raised her to be a survivor, but she kept making bad choices that I'm sure she never saw her parents make when they were raising her. We can't all blame our bad choices as adults on how our parents raised us. At some point we have to admit those bad choices are all our own problem, and do something about changing. I can't stand pathetic, weak female characters.
