Publisher's Summary

Tabitha McClelland knows accepting a job as a Harvey House waitress can be risky. Traveling alone to the rough-and-tumble West just isn't done by young ladies of good breeding. But far more dangerous is her powerful attraction to Adam Foster. Family means everything to the widowed chef, but the self-sufficient Tabitha cherishes her freedom above all else.
Adam is captivated by the fiercely independent Tabitha. Fraternizing with the female employees is strictly forbidden, but the Harvey Girl awakens feelings too compelling to ignore. Can Adam convince Tabby to share his dream of a future in California - together?

The Story Was Really Slow But Saved By Narration

This story takes place along the route to California back in the 1800s, I would guess. Tabitha is a young woman, single and trying to earn a living on her way to California. She has found her niche in waitressing for the version of the 1980/90's Howard Johnson's.

Adam Foster is a cook at these establishments. He is widowed and not looking for anything but to survive and support his family.

There are very strict rules against fraternization between employees. It seems that everyone is keeping an eye out so as to tattle on anyone making "inappropriate" comments and or behavior.

Midway through the story, Adam gets the message that his mother is quite ill. He rushes back to be with her. It is during the separation that Tabitha and Adam really understand that they are lonely without one another.

I appreciate the authors work and her Christian theme throughout. The story seemed to be very slow. With 30 minutes left I was still waiting for the story to pick up.

However, Meghan Kelly is amazing, as usual. She kept me engaged and listening lots longer than I would have, had I been reading it on my own or the story being performed by another narrator.

I don't really know how to rate this one other than on performance which I easily give a solid 5 stars. The story line was good but it just took so long to get anywhere that I found myself floundering and losing interest.

There is nothing to note regarding warnings for any potential listeners.

This could easily be rated PG, if not milder, because it was a nice, sweet, innocent Christian story.

*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my review. I will give the author another chance in the future and hope for a more direct and intriguing plot. Meghan Kelly, the narrator, has my attention on just about anything she chooses to perform.

I enjoy leaving reviews, as I know that I read them the reviews of others before I purchase a book. If you found my review helpful in your decision about this book, would you please select yes directly below this paragraph? Thank you so much.

Please consider "following me" here on I purchased a lot of books by authors that I am faithful to. I also have the opportunity to review books in all genres, many that I would not pick up on my own. I have been pleasantly surprised by new authors and narrators. Thanks!

Authors/narrators, feel free to use my review to promote this book on Twitter, Facebook, etc. Please link it back here.

Loved this Harvey Girl romance

I am so thankful to read a excellent clean and wholesome romance. Audible was superb and the story was over the top. If you enjoy clean historical romances this writer is terrific. All the stars there are I give this book.
