Publisher's Summary

How far would you go for your family?
Financial struggles have forced Grace Rockwell, along with her husband and their baby daughter, back to the family homestead. Luckily, the move to the Bittersweet Hollow Morgan Horse Farm isn't all bad. Her sister Portia is there with her toddler son, and Grace soon finds a way to improve their finances - by entering riding competitions with her family's gorgeous horses.
But the homecoming takes a horrific turn when the babies are abducted, sending both new mothers on a frantic search with few leads.
Lollie Belvedere didn't plan to kill her husband. Nor did she know her adopted children would turn out to be kidnapping victims. But something in her snaps the day she's forced to return the babies to their mothers - and now she'll do whatever it takes to get them back.

Trouble aplenty for the Bittersweet Hollow clan

Buy this book now, but read the first two books in the series before dipping into this one, to get the full impact.

Lazar heaps yet more trouble onto the family of Bittersweet Hollow. The new characters he introduces are good ones, especially Lolly, a disturbed woman who turns predator to claim a kidnapped baby as her own, and Lolly's compassionate and savvy maid/companion, Rosa.
The story itself was a small notch below the first two in the series, mainly because the kidnapping threat began to feel overdone. And I had a few nitpicks, the biggest one being that the truth about Lolly's husband never came to light. Overall, though, Devil's Spring was a good read and a worthy continuation of the BH saga.

Gwendolyn Druyer is a marvelous narrator, nimbly portraying the various characters with distinctive voices. Except for a little too much John Wayne in Portia's husband's drawl, her accents and mannerisms were amazing.

For the record, I purchased this audiobook with a gift credit. I am under no obligation to post a review.

Gripping Suspense Story Gives Goosbumps

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I always recommend Aaron's books to my friends. He is my favorite author of all times.
He knows how to hold the listener's interest and does so with extreme expertise. His books are for adults but without any vulgarity whatsover: no foul language or explicit sexual content. However, he knows how to relay his romantic messages to the listener in just the right way !

What was one of the most memorable moments of Devil's Spring?

I do not want to spoil this story so I will just say that I enjoyed book 3 of this series. The characters are intense and have to deal with more than their fair share of challenges.
Their heartache becomes so intense in some scenes I could hardly believe how Aaron could write such an intricate mystery.

Which scene was your favorite?

Here again, I don't want to spoil this book. My heart went out to the children's grandmother when she took them to have their pictures taken and instead, the photographers kidnapped the kids. Being a grandmother myself I really felt her agony.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Parents' Lives Take Heartbreaking Twist

Any additional comments?

I have to thank Gwendolyn Druyor, the narrator, for gifting me this book in exchange for an honest review. She is another of my favorites. Every book I listen to that she narrates keeps me so involved in the story that I feel as if I am one of the characters in the book. Thanks so much for this gift.
