City Mouse Country Mouse, super sweet story with just enough light conflict to keep things interesting and somewhat true to life, but nothing the characters can't overcome.
Jess owns a small apple farm in a small town upstate New York, where she has lived her entire life, and loves. Natalie works at a fast paced high stress art gallery job in big city New York, her "dream" job. Due do unfortunate events, Natalie decides she needs a change of pace, and takes a job at Jess's orchard, a 180 degree turn from everything she has ever known.
Lori Prince nattation is a smooth easy listen, I was able to relate to both characters, the storyline was solid and included a sweet love story with a well-written plot.
I enjoyed it so much I recommended it to my girlfriend, she's only about half-way and it's fun to revisit the characters w/her. Highly recommend!

This is a quick listen that hits your sweet spot. Natalie is a city girl who is somewhat naïve. I didn't expect a grown woman to be as sheltered as she is, but it's explained away with privilege. Jess is a hard-working small farm owner who finds it hard to trust people. Both women have within the last year suffered break-ups that make them wary of entering new relationships.
Natalie shows her character by working hard without complaint, even when it takes her time to learn how to do things. She wins Jess's heart by bonding with the chickens. (As a bird owner myself, I approve of this.) As Natalie toughs out her new life, she and Jess realize that maybe what might seem impossible is worth giving a shot.
Well, no spoiler to those who love romance: Our couple pulls through in the end. However improbable, they are great for each other.
As far as the narrator's performance, I believe this is the first piece I've heard from her. Her voice is great, and she always kept the character voices distinct. You can definitely tell Natalie and Jess apart, even when it's a gasp or sudden sound. The overall production values on this audio are very high and even better than some I've heard recently from bigger name narrators in mainstream studios.
Bottom line: This is a good book for someone who loves a sweet lesbian romance and who wants to spend a few hours wrapped up in that goodness. This is my first book from the author and narrator, but if these works are typical of either creator, I'll definitely be back for more.
