STORY (romance) - Waiting on You is set in the wine country of New York, present day. Colleen's first love, Lucas, broke her heart ten years ago but is now returning home unexpectedly. Their story is well-written and sweet, but Colleen is full of angst due to their first failed relationship and Lucas must persevere. The background to the romance is small town life - Colleen playing matchmaker for her friends, Colleen's mother pining over her husband who left her for a younger woman, someone dying, etc. This background is sometimes sad, sometimes sweet and often humorous, but it's kind of slow when compared to the mystery/romance combos I usually buy.
PERFORMANCE - I love Amy Rubinate's sultry voice, and she did a great job as usual. She is one of the few female readers who performs a nice-sounding male voice.
OVERALL - This is my second and probably last listen in the Blue Heron series. I liked The Best Man a lot better. The stories stand alone, but you will hear updates of characters' relationships from other stories. The book is pretty clean - only a little cursing, and the sexual situations are short and very vague. Recommended for girls only, late teens or older.

She writes well, and for "chick lit" it's one of the better ones. Her characters are very well thought out and you really get a sense of what the author is trying to get across. Thought a little cheesy and predictable, it was an easy, enjoyable read.
