Summary

When Lucky Caldwell was 10, her mother, Red - the best-known hooker in Dundee, Idaho - married Morris Caldwell, a wealthy and much older man. It didn't last, of course, but Morris' kindness was the highlight of Lucky's life.

Mike Hill, Morris' grandson, doesn't feel too well disposed toward Red or her kids. He believes they alienated Morris from his family. Even Morris' Victorian mansion, on the property next to the Hill ranch, wasn't inherited by one of his grandchildren. Instead the house went to Lucky, who left it sitting empty for years.

Now that Red and Morris are both dead, Lucky has finally come back to Dundee. She plans to restore the derelict place - and to look for her real father, who has to be one of three men named in her mother's diary.

That means Mike has a new neighbor.

One he doesn't want to like....

Wonderfully sweet, complex story.

Mike and Lucky are endearing characters you can't help but root for. Rachel did a lovely job performing.

My Favorite So Far

I’ve been listening to this series over the last few weeks, rotating it with other books. This series is an easy listen and I like that the author chose not to paint a small town as if it’s an idyllic heaven where everyone loves and takes care of each other. There are some genuinely bad people in this town and stigmas/reputation sticks with the characters in this little town.

I enjoyed this book in particular because the female lead was interesting to me. She is a compelling mix of strength, weakness, intelligence, vulnerability, and loneliness. I was able to sympathize with this character to the point of genuinely rooting for her to find the very predictable happy ending this series always promises.

I’m giving 4 stars instead of 5 because, let’s be real, this is a not some great masterwork that’ll go down in literary history. But this series is an easy listen, has plenty of heart, and is realistic enough to be believable. All of those things set it apart, in my eyes, from a good deal of romance novels. I truly appreciate that his series doesn’t give in to the eye-roll-worthy dramatics that seem so common in romances. Women aren’t kidnapped and their lives aren’t in danger from a one-dimensional bad guy. The conflicts in this series always stem from a realistic, believable, grounded place. So, I’d say the series is a step above most romance and definitely worth a listen.

LOVED

I really loved these characters. I loved the story and didn't want it to end but I had to know what happened next. I loved following them threw their journey of over coming obstacles. They had to deal with the past obstacles before they could deal with the present ones.
I think the narrator did a fabulous job.
