Summary

Since moving to beautiful Cedar Tree, Colorado, Emma Young, mother of one adult daughter, has worked from home doing some online bookkeeping and baking for her best friend's diner to supplement her disability pension. Life has been pretty good, that is until she received a strange phone call that starts an alarming chain of events.

Investigator Gus Flemming is hot on the trail of a bail skip with organized crime connections that bring him to Cedar Tree. Once there, the focus of his investigation lands squarely on the gently rounded shoulders of a vivacious red haired Emma, whose physical limitations have done nothing to dampen her zest for life.

When it becomes clear that Emma is at risk, Gus does't hesitate to step in and protect her. Call it a job with some very hot benefits....

Not miss this great listen

First one I heard from Freya Baker . It was full of Mystery, suspense, humour and learning to forgive
Love how both main characters meet by chance ove the phone . Love how both made a connection and they both felt it .
Freya had a great style with the story and how Emma the heroine was over 45 and disabled.
Emma and Gus meet under circumstances that were out of their control. Gus had a job to do and find some truths . The truths involved his family and some other characters. Gus wasn’t counting on true love ( everyone around him had conditions to stay or leave) and finding Emma . Gus had a PI firm and he had to get to the bottom of some things.

The narrating team of Tanya Eby and Noel Harrison was right on. I can always count on Tanya to deliver an A plus read

Loved it

I loved Emma and Gus when I read the book and have loved re-reading by audio this time.

Emma taking her life back and living to the best of her ability disabilities be damned. Such a strong woman. Loved the humor between her and Arlene. When things go a little crazy and Gus quickly wedges himself in to Cedar Tree and Emma care, things get a little hot and sexy.

This books is full of suspense and keeps you wanting more needing to know what happens next.

A Perfect Start to the Cedar Tree Series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I loved this audio version of one of my favorite books. The story grips you from the very beginning and the twists and turns of the storyline keeps the reader engaged and eager to delve deeper into the story. The audio book complements the authors words and gives the reader a greater understanding of the characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Emma is one of my all time favorite characters. Even though she is far from perfect and has health issues, she is far from an invalid. She's smart, funny, passionate, loving and feisty as can be. She's the kind of woman I think we all strive to be, insecurities and flaws and all.

Which character – as performed by Tanya Eby and Noel Harrison – was your favorite?

Emma, I think Tanya Eby did an awesome job as the character. Her voice matched the one I imagined when I first read the book two years ago. Her intonation conveys the emotion and passion that Emma has.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Imperfect people, impossible circumstances, but a perfect love.

Any additional comments?

The Cedar Tree series is one of my very favorites and this audio book makes me want to listen to the entire series.
