New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Julia London delivers another standalone, heartwarming love story in her Pine River series.
Emma Tyler's cool exterior and penchant for sarcasm keep most people from getting too close...and an unusual compulsion drives her to steal from the few men who do. When her trophy-collecting habit goes too far, she quits her ritzy event-planning job in Los Angeles and runs away to Pine River, hiding with her estranged half sisters at Homecoming Ranch and caring for Leo Kendrick, her ailing friend.
Thrillseekers Anonymous founder Cooper Jessup has his hands full with work and his brother's looming prison release date. But when a client asks him to track down Emma Tyler to retrieve a stolen memento, Cooper can't turn down the money...or the chance to see the beautiful Emma again.
When Cooper comes to collect the item, Emma refuses to admit the horrible truth. This handsome man may see right through her steely veneer, but can he get close enough to show her how love and honesty can heal a troubled heart?

"Good book, great performance"
It was a great story. I like the fact that it was different and quirky. But I really had to write review just in case the editor, author, performer read this...I never comment on the actual reading and performance of a book but this one was quite memorable! Thank you! Not only did it facilitate the reading but it added to it! Wonderful job!!!
Absolutely loved this trilogy. Leo as the narrator was a perfect choice. He was so funny talking about everyone in his life.
I so loved this book, the whole series! I laughed, anguished, and cried. I really connected with all the characters and will miss them.
"Love this series"
What a wonderful group of characters. Many flawed and they feel like real people and make you care about them.
Although these books can be stand alone, I like to have the whole series for background on the characters. I really enjoy all the books in this series and the series that ties in with it (Thrillseekers). I would recommend all of them. There is plenty of humor plus the feeling that these characters are as frail and fallable as any human.
I think that Emma was who she was whether other people liked her or not. I understand how people would assume she had a form of Aspbergers (having an autistic child, I know they can say things that most people filter) and maybe she really did.
She does a good job of distinguishing voices from one character to the next. I like her work.
Both. There were some parts where you had to laugh but the parts that were sad literally made be cry. I don't want to give anything away, but if you've read the other books in this series, there is a conclusion that you knew was coming and is still something you wish would change.
I have most of Julia London's audibles that are this genre. I'm not into the historical romances but I do like the contemporary ones.
"very touching story"
loved Leo and how Emma worked thru her troubled past. tear jerker. couldn't put book down.
"Not my cup of tea. "
I skipped through it after the 4th chapter. Although the story was not to my liking, It is well written and narration good.
