Publisher's Summary

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.

    "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.

    From an author who is at her all time high, she has once again create an amazing love story to end all love stories. Without a doubt, this book will keep you so engaged, you will not want to put it down. It's full of raw emotions, real fears, tenderness, and lots of warm fuzzy moments.
    This book is one of the best love stories you will ever read. Not just romance, but a whole hearted kind love everyone will feel and want by time your done reading this book.
    This definitely deserves more than 5 stars.
    So show Gerri Hill some true love and get a copy today. You won't be disappointed!!!

    Story
    "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.

    The story was enjoyable and an easy, relaxing listen, but a little boring and predictable.

    "OMG! didn't want it to end"

    where to start? well obviously Gerri Hill and Abby Crayden can do no wrong. This book definitely brought up some emotions for me. plenty of sad parts but many many fun parts with witty dialogue and probably the best first kiss scene I've ever read. :) would definitely recommend.
