Publisher's Summary

Paradise, Idaho, may not be the largest town, but for newly minted professor Zoe Santangelo, it's the first step on the path to her big break. After teaching in a small Idaho school, her next stop is the Ivy League, and no one is going to stand in her way. She'll do what it takes to move up, to protect her students from a creepy campus stalker - and to protect her heart from Cal Jackson, the hot, hunky cowboy who keeps coming to her rescue.
After a career-ending injury, Cal has left professional football behind and come home to work the family farm. He's determined not to get mixed up with any more city girls who don't want to settle down with a country boy. But after he rescues sassy geologist Zoe from a snowy ditch, he can't stop thinking about her. Can Cal keep Zoe safe from whoever is targeting her - and can he show her that having ambition doesn't mean she has to sacrifice love?

What an all round great listen..... there's the chilling mystery and suspense of the sub plot, the beautiful sexy romance between Cal and Zoe who are both very likeable fun characters and they have such great chemistry and rapport. Then there's the teamwork of two awesome narrators who each stuck to their own gender's words making the book flow like a conversation. Finally, you get 11 hours of an entertaining and enjoyable listen for under $8 - so no need to use a credit therefore there's absolutely no dilemma here..... just add it to your cart now.

Fabulous Book Fantastic Narration All For $7.34

There is a lot to love about Carry Me Home (Paradise, Idaho #1) by Rosalind James and in short, I recommend this book to anyone who likes books about strong women, playful chemistry, suspense balanced by a romantic story, and/or stories set in smaller cities/rural towns.

Carry Me Home is about strong women and women getting stronger. This book is a thriller, but none of the women act helpless, and better still, there is a lot of women helping women in this story. Furthermore, there are a lot of real world problems addressed in the story, and I think women will find situations in which they identify.

The romance is a slow, hot build and worth every page and suspense is laced throughout the book with a good degree of scary, making the reader want to read on to see how things turn out! The characters are great and have wonderful chemistry. You want to see that with the romantic couple, but it really is true of the ensemble of characters in this book. If there is anything in this book that could go either way with me, depending on my mood, it is the feeling of male protectiveness that shows up in varying degrees throughout the book. I think it generally works as it is balanced by strong women who stand up for themselves.

I am always a big fan of how James describes and uses her setting throughout the book. She never just pays the story’s location cursory service, but seems to do the setting justice. She also has a tendency to make the reader fall in love with the location, and Paradise, Idaho is no exception.

Additionally, for those who struggle with motivation to work out, Carry Me Home often served as a gentle nudge from a friend to work out or be active. Dancing and snowshoeing are just two examples from this book.

The narration was outstanding just the way a dual narrator book should be delivered. The male reads the male dialogue and the female reads the female dialogue.
I hope there are more installments from Paradise.
