Publisher's Summary

Driven by fear and desperate to protect her family, Samantha is forced to leave Chicago and everything she's worked to achieve, only to start over by tossing a dart at the map. The Georgia town's folk true Southern charm is the unexpected prescription needed to heal her soul, and the sexy carpenter who touches her heart is a distraction she didn't plan on, but they might offer her a chance at a new life, if she can let go of her past.
Town heartbreaker Spencer Malloy isn't looking for anything serious. His days are perfect working as a contractor, attending his nephew's baseball games, or taking him fishing. He never expects to fall for the big city girl, Samantha. She's not his type, timid and closed off, but in her unguarded moments, he's intrigued by the woman he can't get out of his mind. The urge to get closer to her grows stronger each day, and when the shadow of evil resurfaces, he vows to protect Samantha, even if it means abandoning his home and joining her on the run.
When confronted by the man who's bent on revenge, Samantha must choose between running again to save the people she loves, or, if she has the strength, to stay and fight for her new life.

safe at home

great book, definitely worth reading/listening to til the end. Its more than a romance book, half way through it becomes a thriller. Samantha and her brother are running and hiding from a psychopath ex boyfriend of hers. Hes absolutely crazy and deserved to be in jail the first time. Sam and her brother meet spencer whos swoon worthy and brave! together you can feel the chemistry , sparks start to fly. Can they learn to let go of their fears , can he save sam and her brother from the monster? all those questions and more you keep asking yourself the further you get into the book. Definitely recommend book 1 ! I was given a copy of this audiobook for free by my request and voluntarily left this review!

Story Possibilities Hidden Behind Narration

Unfortunately, I can’t really comment on Ms Kirby’s writing because it’s hidden behind and under the narration; it’s completely overwhelmed. I tried skipping around different sections and chapters with no respite. To give Ms Kirby her due, I’ll be checking out the book through Kindle Unltd.

While Carlson has a very pleasant voice, which lends itself well to audio; she reads, not narrates. Too many sentences and scenes all run together; then when you think she’s giving you emotions, it ends up being sing song-ey and then there are miscues, where the emotion is missing altogether...? You’re in a different scene, different character; dialogue, then exposition- it’s like trying to watch a scene unfold under a strobe light....
Whether the cause was poor reading, editing, or production, it completely distracted me from the story.
