Paula W-Audible Review
Angie Ellington never disappoints and Meg Price is the perfect narrator!
I just love Angie Ellington. She is one of my favorite authors. Every book of hers is a feel-good romance that makes me feel like I’m reading a Hallmark movie, or in this case, listening to one! I especially love audiobooks and getting to listen to this one in audio version was perfect to refresh my memory of this fantastic story before I read its sequel, that’s about to come out! Brady Carlisle and Olivia Shields have such a sweet story and supporting characters are lovely. Ellington shines best when combining all the details of characters with the appealing setting and happily ever after story. To top off this heartwarming story, Meg Price’s narration ties it up warmly. She’s a perfect voice for this Carlisle Bay introduction!
