Summary

Fancy Lynn Sawyer says that before she'll even think about the M word, a man has to say the three magic words, but 'I love you' isn't enough. He has to promise her a forever thing. She intends to find her forever thing in Florida, her home since she was 15, so she wasn't even looking for it when she comes to Texas to help her grandmother. With a job at the elementary school lined up, Fancy Lynn moves but she intends to stay only until her grandmother regains her health.

Theron Warren has absolutely no intention of falling in love again. His one failed marriage was painful enough. As an elementary school principal, part-time cop, and full-time ranch owner, he doesn't have time for the sassy woman who suddenly appears in his life: first in the jailhouse, then at his school and soon everywhere he turns.

Fate is trying to tell Fancy Lynn and Theron that they are soul mates, but is having a tough time convincing them.

cute and clean

This was a cute story. The narrator did a pretty good job with the southern accents. I like clean stories with little angst and happy endings. This fits the bill. If you want a heavy story to beat the classics and need true literature this isn't it. However, I loves it because It is a nice story and kept me listening.

80's Ladies

3 girlfriends; 1 was pretty, 1 was smart & 1 was a borderline fool.
Good storyline (a little sad) about Fannie, the pretty one. Loved all of the characters. Narrator, nice voice; male voice okay; female, good; loved little girl's voice. Ending leads into the borderline fool's story.

It’s a feel good story

There’s a surprise I didn’t expect in it that made it even more heartwarming. I’ll listen to this one again. The narrator is my favorite. She can switch between characters so easily and represent different ages from child to teen to adult to elderly and men and women. She’s great!

Pleasant but predictable

A pleasant romance but followed along very predictable lines. A nice break from the heavy psychological thrillers I had been listening to lately.

Performance was excellent.
