Scottish widower Ian MacLean is plagued by a mischievous grannie, bitter regrets, and an ache for something he'll never have again. His only hope for freedom is to bring his grannie's sister home from America. But first, he'll have to convince her young companion, Emily Chapman, to let the woman go.
Emily devotes herself to foster youth and her beloved Aunt Grace. Caring for others quiets a secret fear she holds close to her heart. But when Ian appears, wanting to whisk Grace off to Scotland, everything Emily holds dear is at risk.

Riveting story of facing fears and letting go
Would you consider the audio edition of Like There's No Tomorrow to be better than the print version?
"Like There's No Tomorrow" gripped and inspired me from page one. It quickly became one of my favorite books, adding Camille Eide to my "auto-purchase author" list. But listening to the audiobook brought an even deeper level of understanding and connection with the characters. I was captivated by the rich Scottish brogue and fell in love with the story all over again in a new, fresh light
What was one of the most memorable moments of Like There's No Tomorrow?
Each of the characters face real-life challenges of heartache and disappointment, but witnessing their journeys of releasing control and letting go of fear and bitterness was heart wrenching and inspiring.
What does Becky Doughty bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Her Scottish brogue brought the book to new life for me, setting the stage more firmly in The Scottish culture than when I read it on my own (quite possibly because my attempt at a Scottish accent is doused with a southern twang). I have listened to many audiobooks and some make it harder for me to get lost in the story. But Becky Doughty nailed the narration of this story, making it even more captivating than I ever thought possible.
Any additional comments?
If you've already fallen in love with "Like There's No Tomorrow" in print, I highly recommend adding the audio version to your collection as well. It's worth every penny.
If this is your first encounter with Camille Eide, don't pass her by. She has a beautiful way of bringing characters to life that feel like they could be your neighbor or best friend, weaving them together in an unpredictable, witty, and inspiring way.

Like There's No Tomorrow was simply a beautiful story with wonderfully developed characters - main and secondary. There was not one character that didn't have a message to share, whether obvious or delicately woven around Ian and Emily's central story. Along with a heart-tugging romance and subtle humor, there was also a potent and life-affirming faith thread. Ian's faith journey was especially moving. You cannot finish this book without falling in love with the Godly man Ian becomes. I'm thrilled to have found this little gem and look forward to reading more from Camille Eide.
Although I'm sorry that I didn't read this book sooner, at the same time I probably wouldn't have been encouraged to listen to the audio - and it was fantastic! Dialects, inflections, and character voice can make or break an audio listen. For me, there's no recovery from a poor audio even if I switch to solely reading. In addition to her own collection of authored books and unbeknownst to me, Becky Doughty is also an amazing narrator (and singer!) I usually only listen to audio when I can't physically be reading, but this was one of the rare instances where I just wanted to keep listening.
