Publisher's Summary

Witt's End is in trouble. The small town of artists is at risk of disappearing from the map if Serenity Makepeace can't expand her small grocery store into a mail order enterprise to sell her neighbors' handcrafted goods. High-priced start-up advisor Caleb Ventress was intrigued by Serenity's impassioned letter. A small town grocer wasn't high profile enough for him, but her request earned her a meeting. And Calebs' attraction to her earned her a few more. But when someone tries to blackmail Serenity, her future, and possibly even her life, is at risk.

    Story
    "What a waste! Extremely poor narration..."

    First let me say that I absolutely LOVE this story. I own in both in print and ebook versions. I was hoping to add this version to my stockpile. I've been a little disappointed by the narration in a few of the recent JAK audiobook offerings (ex Guinevere Jones series) but I took a risk. This is a story with very rich characters and I could tell from the sample and the first 30 mins that the narrator wasn't going to cut it. Her voice had potential but the delivery was so FLAT that I couldn't listen any longer. It is literally one step above voice read text. I'm so disappointed that this one didnt work out.

    Story
    "JAK at the top of her game, narration ruins it."

    I have heard another narrator read this book and I loved it. This narrator makes a smart young woman, strong enough to overcome an unconventional if loving childhood and education to become very successful in the broader world, sound apologetic and childlike. Like the very best of JAK's heroines this young woman is not only unapologetic that she is different but is so cheerfully centered that she feels the rest of the world needs a bit of adjustment. In most cases she is right.

    This story was written when Jayne Ann Krentz was at the top of her game. The main character is a bright young woman who was adopted at birth by a whole village. It may not have taken a village to rear her, but she is lucky in the village she has. Each villager taught her their own special subject and her education allowed her to be very successful at University and later when she returned to her home, she is successful in her own specialty grocery. When the book opens she is negotiating with a start-up consultant to begin an online outlet for the crafts and art the people in her village create.

    As I said the earlier recording of this book is better. I am sorry I lost that one and I am sorrier that I bought this one.

    Story
    "Dated"

    I enjoy Jayne Ann Krentz and I was excited for a new book. After listening to the first chapter I realized that this was a new audio version of an old book. It hasn't aged that well. Some characters are quite hateful but then one has an unrealistic change of heart. A major plot point is the development of a mail order catalog business. There is an unnecessary subplot about an abused woman and her ex. Overall, I wish I'd realized this was a book from 1993 and saved my credit.

    "Bits and pieces"

    I loved this book. This is the first book in a long time that I didn't want to
    end . Jayne Ann Krentz did a wonderful job of writing. I have read or
    Listen to all of her books_Amanda Quick, and Jayne Castle.Don't know how
    this was missed.
    All of the characters were treated with respect and care even though most
    were a little different as we all are.They were all kind and loving people
    except the villains.The h/h were people you would want to meet and know.
    Amy McFadden did a very good narration

    Story
    "A lot of fun with some great twists and turns."

    This was a great story about a mystery of who you are and what makes a person. That all people have a place and that we are made of the people who have touched Our Lives.
