Publisher's Summary

Michelle Sanderson may appear to be a strong, independent woman, but on the inside, she’s still the wounded girl who fled home years ago. A young army vet, Michelle returns to the quaint Blackberry Island Inn to claim her inheritance and recover from the perils of war. Instead, she finds the owner’s suite occupied by the last person she wants to see.
Carly Williams and Michelle were once inseparable, until a shocking betrayal destroyed their friendship. And now Carly is implicated in the financial disaster lurking behind the inn’s cheerful veneer.
Single mother Carly has weathered rumors, lies, and secrets for a lifetime, and is finally starting to move forward with love and life. But if the Blackberry Island Inn goes under, Carly and her daughter will go with it. To save their livelihoods, Carly and Michelle will undertake a turbulent truce. It’ll take more than a successful season to move beyond their devastating past, but with a little luck and a beautiful summer, they may just rediscover the friendship of a lifetime.

Good story. Wooden performance.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Usually, I am quickly involved in the tale Susan Mallery spins. However, with this particular audiobook it took me a while, The narrator was juvenile in her performance of this book and that detracted from my enjoyment. One of the few times I wish I had read the book instead of listened to it. Too bad. I hope the narrator for the next book in the series is better.

Narrator Ruins It

What disappointed you about Barefoot Season?

I couldn't get into the book due the the poor quality narration. I think I could have done a better job! Guess I've gotten spoiled by Therese Plummer and Tanya Eby! I'm going to download the Kindle version.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I may try the second on in this series if I recognize the narrator and know I can trust her.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Monotone, no real differentiation between the female characters. Sounds bland and beige.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I couldn't finish it, so can't answer. Only made it a few chapters in before I threw in the towel.
