Happy and sad.........but oh so perfect.

Julie Maisey really did give a heart and soul to each of the characters in this book. The fantastic author knows how to write a good story. I’ve loved each and everyone of her novels. But the narrators can be very hit and miss. This time they got it perfect with Julie. Her voice is young enough to have you believing each character is truly different. The author and narrator are a match made in heaven. Thank you.

Nice storyline

This is the first story I've listened to on audible I loved the way the narrator used the different accents. It was has a good storyline but felt it left a lot of areas unfinished so I'm hoping there is a follow on book
