sizzling chemistry from the onset of meeting...

Sweet. Tender. Endearing. Meeting Finley and finding a soul that needed a helping hand. She got that hand and a new place to make a home and find love. Heart of the Family was just what Finley needed. Robin coming across her at that time was just the new start she needed. Lusting after the Roan was not what she bargained for. Their coming together was just the spark they both needed to make things spicy. Finley believes the worst of her new obsession. Then he works to prove her thoughts wrong. Then there is that incident that she struggles with.

I did very much enjoy the new beginning to the next phase of this series.

I enjoyed Lisa Beacom voice. I loved her pitches, tone change, inflection and just all around. I found home with her voice and this story.

Perfect

I loved listening to Lisa Beacom , perfect for this great book

This book has chemistry between the characters of Finley and Roan. Even though Finley has lack of confidence she still gives Roan some cheek. Roan sees the goodness in people and not just the outside . This is a great listen to and you will enjoy the chemistry and all the ups and downs . A great story.

Finley & Roan

When you need a story that is heart warming and just makes you feel good, this Heart of the Family series are the books you want! Stacy Eaton's Roses & Champagne kisses delivers it all. Finley loves catering, but hates her current job and abusive relationship. When Robyn offers her a place at Heart of the Family Catering, she jumps on the chance and begins her new life. Roan is a widow, who does a background check on Finley and is taken with her when they first meet. Now ready after 6 years of being alone, he makes his move. But is Finley ready? I found myself wrapped up in this couple all day! Finley is very capable, which I love in a woman. She is strong, smart, beautiful, but does lack a little confidence when it comes to Roan. Roan on the other hand is so secure in who he is and what he wants, he just exudes confidence. I love their banter, and I love the situations the two find themselves in.There is some suspense, but not too much, and the results are so rewarding. Rye, Roan's twin is an interesting character. His nonchalance should prove to be a front in our next installment of this series. At least I hope it is!! I have a feeling there is more to him than meets the eye!

Lisa Beacom is a wonderful narrator and I enjoyed her performance in this book. She has an easy going lilt in her voice and it comes through her portrayals as a relaxing listen. She tells the story so well that it pulls us in and invests us in the outcome. A fun and entertaining listen from Eaton and Beacom.

Roan & Finley

Roan is ready to start dating again after the loss of his wife. Finley is happy where she is and belives she does not deserve anything better. She lacks self-esteem and overreacted to the news about her parents.

The duo does it again

Another great story/narration by this fantastic duo. I loved the first in this series and this one is just as great. It does not disappoint and I can’t wait to start the third which I’m going to do in about five minutes. 😁 if you love a love story with hot sex and some drama this is the series for you.

I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Sweet story

Finley comes to work for Robin at Heart of the Family Catering. Finley meets widower Roan and they both are attracted to each other. Too bad Finley thinks he is a lowlife cheating on his fiancé. This is just the beginning of misunderstandings between them.
Great characters and storyline.

More “Heart of the Family” Awesomeness~Fabulous🎧📚🎧


Stacy Eaton delivers another awesome story in her “Heart of the Family” series and I loved every word and every minute of it. The story swept me right in, grabbing my attention and holding it captive straight to the end. Robin Cove, the new owner of Heart of the Family Catering un Cricklewood Cove, be sure to read the first book in the series “Roses & Champagne” for more about Robin and Chris. She hired Finley Parker to work for her, hired her on the spot, she saw something in her that reminded her of herself. Finley was happy to leave her old job, her cheating ex and is happy to have a fresh start. She is a bit over qualified for the work but is happy to work with people. She needs to build up her confidence to further her career and Robin sustains and injury she asks Finley to step up and fill in for her and she is great at it. Roan Waterman, a widower, father of teenage son, former model and currently works as a security expert. He actually did a background check on Finley, as a favor to Chris, Robin’s husband. His brother, Rye is marrying his long time girl friend, Autumn, she is hell on wheels when it comes to making decisions about her wedding, including what food to have catered. Finley sat with Roan and Autumn to talk over the menu, she soon realized what a PITA Autumn was. She also realized the chemistry she shared with Roan. But thinking he was the groom to be he was a complete no go. Roan lost his wife to cancer six years ago, he was the love of his life and no other made him feel, that is until Finley. I loved how everything plays out in this book, the story is beautifully plotted and includes drama, some angst, a touch of mystery & suspense, plenty of heartfelt emotions and the start of an amazing romance. Woohoo, loved the ending too, WTG Rye Stacy Eaton, thank you for another awesome story and emotional rollercoaster ride.

Lisa Beacom is a terrific narrator and voice artist. She continues to bring these characters and their story to life, her portrayal of them is perfection, sounding exactly as I picture them. She sets the perfect tone for the story, captures the characters emotions, their passion and attitude, which can be heard in her performance. She is an entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another awesome listen🎧

Love and Friendship

Audiobook Review…I usually listen to books that I have read before so that I am familiar with the story. I have not read Roses & Champagne so this was a new-to-me story. Lisa Beacom did an amazing job of telling Stacy Eaton’s story and making it come alive as I listened.
eBook Review…Love, friendships, new opportunities are some of the amazing storylines woven together to make one amazing book. Abuse, death, and cheating are also found within the story but they are written in with care and respect. The difficult topics make good things even more wonderful.

Finley is a tough character. She is all woman but she doesn’t need a man. She does not even want a man but she has one. She has Roan, whether she wants him or not. Roan, he is all man. Tough, sexy, protective, and alpha. When life gets complicated for Finley, Roan steps in to keep her safe and of course falls in love with her. I loved this. They both needed someone in their lives who would respect and love them for who they were. Both Finely and Roan had pasts that were holding them back and they needed to be able to get past that to find their HEA. Together they showed that anything was possible and that all they needed was a good person in their life to make their world better.

A great addition to the series

I thoroughly enjoyed the audio of book one in this series, and have to say, this one was also very good.
In the previous story we met in passing Finley Parker and Roan Waterman.
Finley works in Robin Landry’s catering business. Roan is the father of Robin’s step-son best friend. A man that has been a widower for over 6 years and is ready to open his heart once again. The person that he has eyes for is Finley.
But Finley believes she’s not enough for him. As the story progresses, Roan is determined to show Finley that they are meant to be together.
Things get complicated when discoveries of her past are revealed, her life is in danger and to make matters worse, she overhears a conversation that has her confused and unsure on how she should handle it.
The story was engaging from beginning to end and I am looking forward not only to the next audio in the series, but also hope that we get some insight on how these two are doing.
