Summary

Carrigans of Circle C, book two: Some love stories have to begin with a falling-out-of-love story.... Mattie Carrigan's been helping her rodeo-cowboy husband, Wes Bishop, run his family's Tennessee walking horse operation since they were married 19 years ago. Blessed with twin daughters who've recently left for college, Mattie is looking forward to this new stage in her and Wes' life. But when she finds a strange key in her husband's jacket, she's forced to admit that Wes has been quiet and distant lately. Turns out he has been keeping secrets. And he's not the only one. Even the rancher next door, Nat Diamond - a friend Mattie could always count on in the past - seems to be holding something back from her. Good Together is for anyone who has ever pondered what it means to be married or had to reinvent her life when one breaks down. It's about having your heart broken but being strong enough to survive and love again.

Great Book!

Great book. Wish it hadn't ended when it did, though. It was a bit abrupt. Wanted to hear about wedding details, how they got along after moving in n, etc.

Spineless

Why on earth did this author write such a spineless character as Mattie? I kept listening out of desperation of lack of cell service to get another book, that Mattie would get some sort of fire under her and do what ANY OTHER woman would have done in this situation and that is to give both Wes and Nat the middle finger. Having trained, ridden, endurance raced, and rodeoed in my life, I have never, and I mean never run across any horsewoman worth her salt that was such a doormat and spineless.

The characters had zero depth what so ever. All the male characters could have been replaced by a neanderthal who would have had more depth and conversational skills in them. And who on earth lets their husband walk away, take everything they have and not once at least give him a good raking over the coals.

The narration sounds almost computer generated. Monotone, no real inflection. All I can think of is the narrator was as bored as I was.

There were distracting moments when in the middle of an (what should be) emotional situation Mattie looks at the puppy and thinks, 'gosh that puppy is cute'.

The ending. OMG! Really? After I slogged through this, only because I was in an area for four days, yes gathering cattle in the Rockies, and I had ZERO cell service, this was what I was relegated to. So slog on I did. It got kinda funny. Like watching the old emotionless Batman and Robin cartoons. Listen like you are watching old bad westerns or Mystery Science 2000.

I hate giving a bad review. Truly I do. But the absolute unreal quality and doormat nature of Mattie brought it out of me.

men are sometimes so dumb when comes 2 the heart

Wes was kind a jerk who doesn't have a little love in your heart after 20 yrs together . Maddy just took the distance if my husband hadn't called me in a couple days I'd be hounding him . maddy waits 3 weeks or so . I was disappointed in how Maddy handled her husband of 20yrs let's just say he'd be walking around with no genitals if he polled that stuff on me. Nate willing to sacrifice his love and let him and Maddy be miserable because he has a medical problem.

Not polished, but potential

I found the narrator distracting, and the characters were somewhat weakly developed for my liking, but I think that story line was good. I doubt I'll buy another audio book read by this narrator. I really don't like giving negative reviews because I know how challenging it is to get that perfect balance between plot and character development. I certainly admire the dedication it takes to see such a project through!
