Summary

Kline Grant has traveled the world for more than a decade to avoid going back home - and to make sure she doesn't see Ben, her former fiancé. But her mother's recent health troubles make it impossible for Kline to stay away. She plans to check on her mom, avoid Ben, and then get back on the road again. But the quirky town locals of Anderson Butte, a private little celebrity hideaway in the picturesque mountains of Colorado, have a very different plan.

Ben Anderson, the town's handsome and beloved doctor, once broke Kline's heart for reasons he's never explained. When he figures out her mother's scheme to trick her into coming home, he enlists the meddling townspeople's help to make things right again with Kline. Then Ben plans to win her back. But as the former flames come face-to-face, old wounds ache, hurtful secrets emerge, and sparks fly with the heat between them that's never cooled. Will the truth be enough to heal two broken hearts, or will it keep them apart forever?

Not my favorite of the series. Great Narration!

This was not my favorite of the series, it was just okay, and of course I wanted to listen to Ben's book.

So Kline and Ben were together for 7 years broke up for several years and then she ended up back in the small town of Anderson Butte. The story line and the way the town acted towards her was just odd to me. She left because she didn't want to be in a small town and of course because of Ben. No spoilers here but it was just nearly as good as the previous 3 books.

I just didn't like Kline as much as I liked Ben. There was a lot of dialogue, which I did like. The whole Mayor thing threw me off too. Sort of cheesy to be honest. I didn't hate this story, I just didn't love it either. The story flowed and was easy to follow so there is that. Anyway, I think this was the last of the series and since the first three were so good I cant hate this one.

As for the narration, It was great. Kate Rudd is a great narrator. She does the men's voices very well and reads with emotion. I totally recommend Kate Rudd's contemporary romance narrations.

It Had to Be

I really enjoyed reading this series and I look forward to more of her books. I have never read any of her books before and now I can say I am a fan of her books. I read this book in one sitting.

Loved the whole series

This book was the perfect ending to the series. Every book sucks you in and makes you laugh and cry and swoon. This story about Kline and Ben keeps you on your toes and guessing the entire time. And one of the best parts is the little surprise at the end with Grandma Anderson! Loved it.
