Summary

If only life came with instructions. 

Boyd McNaughton is working on balance. He is a father, a brewmaster, and the oldest brother of four. When he’s not running Foghorn Brewery with two of his brothers, his days are packed with carpools, teenage angst, and well-intentioned school moms determined to send him on the perfect blind date. After a simple argument ends with a visit to the emergency room, Boyd discovers the one thing he’s been neglecting - his life. 

Ella Walters is working on connection. Having grown up in a less-than-affectionate family of overachievers, she moved to Petaluma for a slower pace and to escape her past. She has friends now instead of accolades, chooses chocolate croissants over super foods, and cherishes the peace that’s replaced the drama. Sure, she occasionally misses the buzz of the San Francisco General Hospital ER, but Ella is learning that navigating a fuller life can be just as exciting. 

When Boyd’s son, Mason, seeks out Dr. Ella for “advice” and Boyd stumbles all over her newly healed heart, she finds herself longing for something she never knew existed. But families are messy, and they’ll both need to let go of the past if they want to find a future that’s more than by the book.

Different

Of course anything narrated by Sebastian York is special but this story was well written and the characters not only likeable but really well fleshed out. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Would love more of this series on audio.

Tracy Ewens is a new-to-me author. But Sebastian York is one of my favourite narrators, so I took a chance, and I was not disappointed. I shall be reading more of Tracy Ewens’ books, and hope to see more of her work on Audible. This is a book I will re-listen to many times, it’s so well written, the story just flowed - no skipping pages in this book! I just love it when you read an author for the first time, and you know from the very start that you’re going to love the book. And congratulations to Sebastian York, I think this is one of his best performances.

Delightfully refreshing

I was dubious about an unknown to me author but with Sabastian York narrating without the heavy sexual content, I decided to give it a go. I'm delighted I did. The narration was wonderful. But the story and characters were real against a wonderful story of personal challenges, hurts and growth. I look forward to new titles from this author.
