Publisher's Summary

Raymond Jackson, Jr., returns to Palm Hills, California, years after a misunderstanding with his father which caused a wedge between his family. His father passed away a year and a half ago, so he feels it's time to make amends.
His brother also suggests Ray makes amends with his father's girlfriend, Cass, as well. He knows it will be a challenge but believes family and friends are worth fighting for.
What Ray didn't expect was to fall for Cass, whom his father had planned to marry before he passed away. He's determined to make her his, but will she see things his way?

SPOILER–The Captain's Heart Is First In the Series

**If you plan on reading/listening to THE CAPTAINS HEART – this review contains spoilers**

This is part 2 of the Captain's Heart – though both can be read as standalone stories. There was quite a time period between listening to the 2 books for me, things easily fell into place. I think that the listener would have a great experience if one were able to listen to Captain's Heart and Captain's Son back to back.

Cass meets the estranged son of her deceased lover. Her anger and disappointment at his behavior toward his father immediately put a wall between them. Will she be open to hearing Ray's side of the story?

Without spoiling, this book is a bit over the top – not necessarily in a bad way- one example: Cass' daughter is going to a winter formal. She chooses a dress that is above her budget and Ray and Lucas swoop in with the funds needed plus shoes, jewelry, the works. Similar scenarios happen throughout the book especially when Cass is faced with her ex-husband.

There was an unusual focus on race in this book. While it is important for the author to describe the characters for the reader's imagination initially, there were repeat descriptions of each the nonwhite ones. From hair texture to skin color… there were no situations where race was part of a conflict or the story in any way, so the descriptions throughout the book did not really make sense to me. (I also found it ironic that while a majority of the characters were described as black or mixtures thereof – including the main character, Ray – the book cover features the author's, seemingly, white brother!)

Giselle Lumas also narrates this [her] book. It was lovely, but for the use of the word chaperone. :-) I'm sure it is just a regional difference in pronunciation but I was happy when the discussion of chaperones was over! Other than that , Lumas is not only a talented author but a very good voice performer. 4 stars

Overall I enjoyed the book and it was nice to come full circle with the previous book in this duet. I WOULD choose the 1st book over this one, if forced to pick. A strong 3.75 stars

Thank you for taking the time to read my review. *I was provided the unique opportunity to receive an advance copy of this book to listen to in exchange for my unbiased review.

Good Book

I enjoyed this audiobook. There were a few moments that the flow of the storyline was slow, but it had picked up eventually. I liked the different characters, and the narrator was did a good job with distinguishing the differences in voices.
