The writing and the flow of the story is really good. Only in small town USA can a woman move to discover an arrogant hot man only to find her ex followed her.
The sexy scenes were hot but didn't reach pepper hotness.
I thouroughly enjoyed listening to both narrators.
I was provided a free copy of this audible at my request and am happy to give my honest unbiased reveiw
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Overall I felt the book was pretty well written. It has a lot of different things going on from heartaches, corporate takeovers, small town drama/rumormills, land development, grudges (local vs tourists) and lots of love drama. Of course we also can't forget about MAX the dog...he is also in the book a lot and who can't enjoy a book with a main character that is a dog :)
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
The ending felt a little rushed, after all the buildup suddenly it was all over. I would have liked to have seen a little more resolution before things worked out. I did like the epilogue and how things worked out there but the resolution in the chapter(s) before that felt rushed.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
I liked the female narrator but the male narrator wasn't my favorite. I've listened to him in other stories but I don't think he fit the part as well in this book.
Any additional comments?
I was given this book by the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for my unbiased review through AudioBoom.
What an interesting audiobook! Like an onion it has layer to its plot structure. The romance aspect of the story is fairly typical with the initial attraction and the several obstacles that need dealing with before the two protagonists can find their way to each other. However the story also includes a bit of humour, suspense, corporate-drama, small town dynamics, complex family relationships, several spoilt brats, a few interesting pets, conniving exes and several twists in the plot.
Erin Timms is a vet who, motivated by the need to get away from her awful ex, moves to the small town of Sunshine to act as a locum for the local vet. Jon Miles is forced to use her services when a dog is badly hurt in a collision with a car. The attraction is almost instantaneous but so is the suspicion. As it turns out Jon is part of the corporation that has over developed the mountains surrounding the town with ski resorts. More importantly the townspeople hate the resorts. Ever more importantly, there is a history of betrayal associated with the development and the townspeople have long memories.
Of course nothing is quite that simple. For instance Jon isn't just a part of the resort corporation, the relationships between the characters aren't as clear as it all seems, and the cat lady isn't as dotty as initially considered. Jon has to balance his new found attraction to Erin with his long term corporate strategy. Decisions need to be made and realised before Erin and Jon can even consider their HEA.
Overall, I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. It is brimming with details that quickly carry the audience from start to finish.
