Summary

A devoted small-town mayor confronts an old flame over the fate of a historic inn in this delightful romance from author Joy Avery.

Honeybees, history, and small-town charm are what Honey Hill, North Carolina, is all about. Its mayor, Lunden Pierce, will stop at nothing to protect the town’s historical landmarks and distinctive character. She’s Honey Hill’s greatest champion.

But everything changes when Lunden’s childhood sweetheart, Quade Cannon, returns to town. Though Quade has fond memories of his summers in Honey Hill, he has no use for the historic inn he’s inherited - or the honeybees living in its yard. His plan is to sell the inn and reap the rewards.

For Lunden, though, the threat to Honey Hill’s history means war. Determined to change Quade’s mind, she immerses him in the town’s charm and its honeybee culture. But while he’s falling for Honey Hill, he falls for Lunden, too - and the feeling is mutual. As their summer romance heats up, Lunden has a choice to make: the town she loves or the man who threatens to change it.

Critic reviews

“[Inger] Tudor adopts a sweet Southern drawl for Lunden's dialogue that evokes the town's Southern location. The confidence in her voice perfectly reflects the headstrong mayor as she schemes to prevent Quade from selling the local inn to developers. [Pierre] Brooks opts out of the accent, but his booming and jovial performance more than makes up for it. He excels at creating individual voices for the earnest townspeople who welcome Quade with open arms. The narrators' bright and emotive voices highlight the cheeky dialogue and humorous moments in this delightful romance.” (AudioFile Magazine)

“Sensual romance and page-turning plotting make this one sing. This uplifting tale makes a persuasive argument that true love exists.” (Publishers Weekly

Excruciatingly 🐌 Slow 🐌

IT was a struggle to finish. I liked the story but it was dragged out for no reason.

Truly Sweet

I thoroughly enjoyed this story and I will listen again in the future. Z was a delight and my favorite character. I'm looking forward to the next installment in the series.
