Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of New Leaf returns to Mystic Creek, Oregon, where a wounded heart finds a place to call home. After a career on the rodeo circuit, Ben Sterling longs to settle down on his farm and start a family like his brothers. He's searched all over for the woman of his dreams. Yet the only one to spark his interest is the new owner of the local cafe. Getting her attention, however, won't be easy.

Sissy Sue Bentley has worked hard to make it on her own, and she doesn't need another man in her life. From her alcoholic father to the men she's dated, who were after only one thing, they are nothing but trouble. Except Ben keeps showing up whenever she really needs help. Sissy struggles to deny her growing feelings for him-but soon Ben's tender concern has her hoping for a happier future. Then her past comes barreling back into her life, and it will take more than the love in Ben's heart to hold them together.

Mulberry Moon is a winner!

Another wonderful 5 star love story by Catherine. I'm a big fan and enjoy how she mixes in animals with her stories and slightly wounded or soul damaged people who come out winners in life and find the real meaning of love .

Predictive

The first book in series was pretty good. The 2nd book I deleted after less than an hour listening because it was THE SAME STORY just brother number 2. Now book 3 and again THE SANE STORY, handsome bachelor meets by accident a beautiful woman they fall n love and live happily ever after. If there’s a book 4 I can only imagine it will be the 4th brother finding love also. The author did well in first book but really needs a new story line. Deleting book 3 after 30 minutes listening cuz the “writings on the wall”. If I’m wrong I apologize but just don’t care to hear the same story 3 times.

A beautiful story of understanding, patience

Love, listening, working through things willingly, accepting people with their flaws even if they have had poor backgrounds and a man knowing how to be a man not a mouse or an I don’t care it’s not my business, or you’re mine now so you can’t go there or do this or you’re faking it, you’re being a baby, grow up where’s your inner guts to take on pain? Etc etc. I’ve never met a real man being a real man treating you as how Jesus would even in the respecting one waiting for sex. I bet if she asked to wait until marriage he would have.

I know they are out there because I have heard of them. I just haven’t met any. They are blessings of God!

OK...BUT...

My preference in genres is mysteries/thrillers but occasionally I like to take a break with a good love story. This one...I'm not sure. Parts of it was really good but I think the girl "doest protest too loudeth"! Not sure that makes much sense but I really grew tired of Sissy trying to push Ben away instead of working through the problems. Although some parts was really enjoyable, too many others were rather immature and predictable. I want to be fair with my rating especially since the narration was good so I'm giving it a 4 star overall. It's probably many listeners cup of tea. I just need to go back to my mysteries.

Another great story!

I absolutely loved book one. Book two, not so much. So I was thrilled when book three gave me all the same wonderful "feels" that I got from book one. Loved it! On to book four.

1st book in this series was great - not this one!

We really enjoyed the first book in the series. The second was ok. This one was very hard to finish. Almost identical stories that are very predictable - but the worst part to us was the unnecessary details of sex they felt needed to be described. There is something to be said about leaving some things up to your own imagination to draw a picture in your head. We listen to audiobooks as a couple together and this was by far the hardest to listen to together. Way too much sex talk and childish sounding...

Another battered woman and a rat

By Jim’s wife.
If I read this book as a stand-alone instead of a series, I would have rated it higher. But THREE books in a row with a battered woman theme is a bit much. I’m almost afraid to look at the next one.

And there is the part about the broken leg and the rat. Sissy has a badly broken leg and all she can think of is consummating her and Ben’s er... friendship? No one in pain, especially pain severe enough to require narcotics, is going to be that sexually aggressive. I might allow her the stray thought, “If I am going to be spending all this time in bed, I wish I had something more entertaining to do than heal a broken bone.“ But that’s about it.

The rat really got to me. So she thought it was cute and named it Snickers. Maybe if he were the only rat around and she had him nurtured, I’d considered letting him live, but when Ben found his nest, several rats ran out. Rats are vermin and have frequent large litters. They would over run the place in no time and have been impossible to keep out of the buildings. Who wants to go into a business with rats running around?

What about her precious chickens? Rats would be in the chicken feed and spreading disease — or lice — there.

Rats can do other damage. It would have served Ben right if Snickers or his friends had crawled up in his truck’s engine compartment and chewed out several thousand dollars worth of electrical wiring. Maybe that would have brought him to his senses. (I was sort of waiting for that to happen.)
