Publisher's Summary

Beautiful, wealthy, and sophisticated, opera star Sophia Maxwell is living the life of her dreams. As the Songbird of Chicago, she's lauded for her pure, rich voice and has a constant circle of admirers vying for her jaded attention. Then she loses her voice during a performance. Her doctor warns her to rest her larynx, or she'll never sing again. Devastated, Sophia retreats to the frontier town of Sweetwater Springs to stay with her sister. She's determined to recover and once again take the stage by storm.
An injury to logger Kael Kelley forces him to return to his parents' home outside of Sweetwater Springs until he can heal enough to return to the logging camp he manages. He's impatient to recover and concerned about his men, who've been left to work under the incompetent overseer who was responsible for his accident.
When Sophia and Kael meet, they have an immediate attraction. The handsome logger is as different from Sophia's sophisticated suitors as can be. She decides a summer flirtation is the perfect way to enliven her boring convalescence. Then the unthinkable happens, and the Songbird of Chicago falls in love.

Another amazing and beautiful story

This story pulls you in from the first paragraph. You don’t need to read the previous books, but I do encourage it. I feel like I’m a part of Sweetwater Springs. This book lets you catch up with the characters from the other books. I loved getting to know about Sophia Maxwell in this book beyond her being the “Songbird of Chicago” and Kael and his family are a wonderful addition to the Sweetwater Springs family. This book made me laugh and cry. I didn’t want to put it down.

The narrator is amazing as always. She makes you feel like you’re a part of the book.

What happened to Natalie Ross as narrator?

While I enjoyed the story just as much as the other books in this series, I really struggled to finish listening to the book. There is just no comparison between this narrator and the earlier one. If the narrator needs to be switched, she or he should be at a similar reading style and level. And also, I feel like using the same narrator is really important when listening to a series. I am not saying this to attack Lara Asmundson, I'm sure she's doing the best she can. Lara has a nice voice, but needs to develop her skill level - acting, different voices, etc. I'm just so disappointed that the rest of the books don't use Natalie Ross.
