Publisher's Summary

This is a full-length novel, the fourth book in the Knitting in the City series.
There are three things you need to know about Ashley Winston: 1) She has six brothers and they all have beards, 2) She is a reader, and 3) She knows how to knit.
Former beauty queen Ashley Winston’s preferred coping strategy is escapism. She escaped her Tennessee small town, loathsome father, and six brothers eight years ago. Now she escapes life daily via her Amazon kindle one-click addiction.
However, when a family tragedy forces her to return home, Ashley can’t escape the notice of Drew Runous - local Game Warden, bear wrestler, philosopher, and everyone’s favorite guy. Drew’s irksome philosophizing in particular makes Ashley want to run for the skyscrapers, especially since he can’t seem to keep his exasperating opinions - or his soulful poetry, steadfast support, and delightful hands - to himself. Pretty soon the girl who wanted nothing more than the escape of the big city finds she’s lost her heart in small town Tennessee.

Beautiful story and fantastic narration!

This might be my favorite audiobook ever. The narration is spectacular, the Tennessee accent was done really well and when the narrator switched to a male voice, it worked really well. The story itself was really beautiful, a gorgeous love story with a bit of humor and a lot of emotion. This was really a beautiful story and I really enjoyed this audiobook.

Love the story and the performace

This book hits very close to home. I recently had the same experience of a family member having a terminal illness. This book helped me understand that the feelings and guilt a caretaker experiences are normal. I would sometimes say "yes, exactly!" Thank you Penny Reid for helping me heal and understand the process of losing a loved one.

Now for the actual book, Ash and Drew are two of the most loveable book people. The way Drew loves Ashley is breathtaking. It is all encompassing ... complete.

Ashley's relationship with her mother broke my heart. Only because I know the feeling of having it and then not having it. Everyday phone calls just to hear the other persons voice, that is true mother/daughter love.

AND let's not forget the WINSTON BROTHERS (yes, it needs all CAPS) ... I need more of them and soon! They take this book from borderline sad and romantic to laugh out loud funny. Check the schedule!!!

Joy Nash's performance was excellent, the accents were not overly done (I am from Texas and I hate when accents are exaggerated).

This book is a must listen.
