You really get a feel for this small town in Maine and it's quirky inhabitants, monthly weird and wonderful Festivals and the total lack of eligible men. Then there's the feisty and funny bartender Saffron who's had to resort to online dating with funny and disastrous encounters. Scottish handsome Logan has been coming into the bar for six months, he's mysterious, he's been watching Saffron and he talks to other people but not her - even though she carries on talking to him and baiting him to speak to her with one-way conversations, jokes and her life's anecdotes. That is until there's a food fight down Main Street during the Swordfish Festival which finally breaks his resolve..... and from then on it's a tender beautiful love story.
There's fun, drama, angst, life threats, secrets, mystery, danger, heartbreak, great secondary characters and Logan and Saffron a loveable couple who fall deeply in love..... but sadly it's a doomed relationship from the start. As well as that, there is a very poignant tragic sad love story between her Father figure of a friend who is over 90 and that storyline is threaded throughout the main story. Told from Saffron's POV with some funny internal thoughts by her and it's really well narrated by Cris Dukehart who easily managed all the various different accents called for.
Worth a credit? Oh YEAH it definitely would have been but it was a bargain at under $10 and so I saved my credit for a higher priced listen but one that may not be as well-written, entertaining, amusing and as enjoyable as this was.
