Cassie is a lonely housewife with a good husband, but a marriage that lacks passion. She finds love in the arms of a stranger working near her property named Paul. The intimate scenes are so tastefully done, there's just enough information to convey the passionate need these two forbidden lovers have for each other.
Eventually the hunger they have for one another turns into love. Even though the affair is wrong, I still found myself rooting for Cassie to be with Paul.
I really enjoyed this book! I thought it was going to be pretty predictable after reading the summary but.. Without giving anything away here I will say, I was wrong! After listening to a few short stories by John I find his writing style to be realistically true to life. So I should have known this book would be as unpredictable as life is. To me It had a Bridges Of Madison County feel which I loved.
I was so immersed in this book I found it hard to pause. The Ga setting really appealed to me because I live 30 minutes outside Atlanta. Not much has changed except the artist's at Little 5 have replaced their paint brushes with tattoo guns lol.
Now I have to talk about the narration... when you're from the south listening to a book that requires a southern accent, it's either hit or miss. I was pleasantly pleased that Susan didn't do the extreme country bumpkin voice or a over the top impression of Scarlet O'Hara to portray the southern accents. Because the narration was done so well, I'll be forgiving about her mispronouncing Valdosta and Albany.
I was given this book in exchange for my unbiased review. I recommend spending a credit on this one, but only if you have a box of Kleenex handy while listening.

I'm all for a good hearty cry when I listen to a book and I don't always have to have an HEA.
This ending ticked me off!! I finished about an hour ago and I'm still fuming!! To the author, WHY???!!!
I really, really, really, really did not see that ending coming. Really. I'm not going to give it away. Just, why...
The narrator was really good and if my mind had not been blown by the ending, I probably would have more to say.
Just be prepared to jolt, scream, stammer or have some outward reaction to this ending.
