Sintesi dell'editore

Grieving over the loss of her family and feeling like her life is unraveling, Lindsey McDermott quits her job, gets a puppy, and retreats to her grandparents' home in the Texas Hill Country. She spends her solitary days walking childhood trails and reminiscing, trying to reconcile the conflict within her as she struggles with survivor's guilt.

After the death of her husband, Hannah Larson needs a change. At the suggestion of her mother-in-law - and against her better judgment - she and her son Jack move to tiny Utopia and into her husband's grandmother's house.

When Jack and Lindsey form an unlikely friendship, Hannah reluctantly joins them and the three spend the summer swimming and healing as laughter eventually replaces tears. After Jack goes back to school, Hannah assumes their summer fun is over. Instead, Lindsey continues to come around and now - as they find themselves alone - Hannah realizes just how close they've become. Soon, she finds herself struggling with her feelings as their friendship threatens to shift into something much deeper...something she fears she won't be able to fight. Something she fears she won't want to fight.

A story of grief and healing...a story of love.

Wonderful, loved it

I usually don't complete reviews however this was a wonderful book. Sometimes you read or listen as I did to a book and want it to finally end, and sometimes in this case you want it to go on. Great story line, great characters, overall a joy to listen to. Had me laugh, and cry. I have enjoyed the authors books for past few years and look forward to more. Highly recommend.

Loved the book!

The story was sweet and you are captivated from the beginning. The boy in the book is adorable. I love the narrator Abby Craden. She makes you feel the emotions the author is trying to portray. I found myself not wanting it to finish.

Perfect breasts!

If you’ve read the book, you’ll get the title. ;) This was honestly just an enjoyable book. Great story. Great chemistry. Wasn’t too quick or too slow. Not overly dramatic. Honestly, Abby Craden could read the ingredients off of a cereal box and I’d listen, so it was especially nice listening to her read a Gerri Hill book. Definitely recommend!

Great Lesbian Love Story!

Loss and Finding Love. Coming out of grief. A good story and sensuality! I will definitely download more from the author, Hill and narrator, Craden.

Never Disappointed

Gerri Hill never disappoints!!! Such a great story, like a Hallmark movie for lesbians. The characters were charming and unforgettable. The emotion delivered (Great job Abby Carden!) in each sentence was touching. The characters personalities were humbling and refreshing. Keep up the excellent work Gerri Hill, and thank you for sharing your gift with us.

Excellent

Excellent book. Grief is hard to to put in words, but the author does a good job in the storyline. I love how Jack and Lindsay tentatively share their story and the connect. I wanted to book the keep going. Abby Craden is my favorite of all time narrator! Only problem with Gerri Hill is she doesn’t come out the books fast enough!

Gerri Hill at her best with a different type of romance

Now, that’s what I call an interesting plot. She does it again. I love the depth of the characters and the way she deals with the characters’ conflict.
Quite recommendable if you are looking for a change in lesbian romance.

There MUST be a sequel!?

Gerri Hill gives us a wonderful story of loss and recovery that is marred by an ending as abrupt as an unexpected stair. The lack of a satisfactory climax to one of the principal conflicts in the narrative leaves me hoping that a sequel is forthcoming. Like, soon!

There are a couple of flawed edits in the recording, but Abby Craden's usual superlative performance maintains Ms. Craden in her position at the top of my Audible pantheon.

Surprise!

I was surprise when listening to this book it became apparent that it is “Gay Fiction” I finished it and thought it was sweet for what it was but not really what I was expecting. Very descriptive with sex scene’s so not for someone looking for Heterosexual romance fiction but definitely for someone wanting to experience something alternative.

Gentle, moving, character driven love story

Loved this romance, the believable back stories, the slow falling in love.Against the backdrop of a long hot summer spent in wild countryside,on the river and pond.
Straight woman with son,meets lesbian, both overcoming great loss.
Didn’t want it to end, as I really liked the two main characters, healing emotional wounds, finding each other.
It’s also about overcoming grief and loss. The other main character is a nine year old boy, son of one, who plays a pivotal role in the story.
It’s all quite moving, and fun and a slow burn, you’ll enjoy if you like a gentle , character driven love story.
Very well read by Abbi Craden, best lesfic narrator, imho.

Moving but with enough light relieve

I enjoyed how the book dealt with grieve through out, good relationships between characters. All characters were likeable and I really appreciate that the story wasn't moved forward based on miscommunication

A tricky storyline, sensitively told

This could have been a difficult subject but it was addressed with sensitivity. I enjoyed it.
The characters were good, rounded and some were flawed and exasperating but all were narrated with skill, making it clear who was talking. I started and finished it on a single day. Unputdownable!

Total perfection

Good god this is good 😁 Lovely storyline with all the right elements - cabins, birds, fishing, 'fanny floaters' (😳), sweet heartbroken people finding comfort in each other, sad bits, happy bits, hot as hell bits... it's all there. Gerri Hill how I love thee. And Abby Craden ain't bad either 😉

Beautiful

I read this book previously and Abby Craden just brought it to life with her amazing voice. It's one of my favourite WLW books and I'm so glad I got to enjoy it through a new lens.

romance story even when it turned into a gay romance. The narrator was very good.
