Summary

Desperate to escape an unwelcome suitor, Ginny Granger flees to her brother's home in Eastern Oregon for the holiday season. Returning to the community where she spent her childhood years, she plans to relax and enjoy a peaceful visit. Not expecting to encounter the boy she once loved, her exile is proving to be anything but restful.

A talented carpenter, Blake Stratton enjoys a simple existence in the small western town of Hardman. With honest work and good friends, his life is nearly perfect, at least until the day Ginny Granger arrives, setting him on his ear and turning his world upside down. Infuriated by her meddling presence, he's further exasperated to discover she kept a Christmas token he gave her along with his heart the day she left town many years ago.

Cute Storyline, Dreadful Narrator

Cute storyline in Hatfield style, if not a bit tedious with misunderstandings between main characters a bit drawn out. As with some of my favorite stories, "The Christmas Bargain" & the "Baker City Brides" series, the narrator (Michael Canaan) is dreadful - especially horrible with female voices. It's a chore listening to him. I struggle through the complete audiobook versions only because I like the stories so much, but it's so disappointing - would be great listening with a good narrator. Has Shanna Hatfield actually listened to her books read aloud by Canaan & approved them? Sorry.

Good Story but Terrible Narration

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I do not recommend the audible version of this book. The narration was off and very distracting to the realistic feel and setting of this time period.

Sweet story - not a fan of narration

This story is sweet, and an old time romance. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline. The narrator has a beautiful voice, until he is voicing women or children. His falsetto is both distracting and annoying. Perhaps a dual narration or not attempting to change his voice so much would have been better options.
