Publisher's Summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts comes a classic tale about finding the man of your dreams right under your nose.
Hester Wallace is proud of her independence. She needs only one man in her life - her nine-year-old son, Radley. But when Rad starts idolizing their neighbor Mitch Dempsey, Hester wonders if her son needs a male role model. Hester would do anything for her boy, but inviting Mitch into their lives is dangerous. She might start to rely on Mitch…or worse, fall in love with him.

An enjoyable listen

I didn't enjoy this Nora Roberts as well as some of her other books. I could tell this was an older work, not just from references in the book, (VCR'S and arcades), but her writing wasn't what I've gotten used to. Cassandra Campbell was brilliant, however. I loved her inflections and could tell all the characters apart. I will be looking at others works from this talented narrator. Overall, an enjoyable listen.
