Summary

When Ben Sheridan is released from prison in 1936, he returns to his hometown to lead a simple life. Although he's paid his debt to society, he's never forgiven himself for the unthinkable act that forced him to take the life of his step-brother over a decade before. 

Storekeeper Heather O'Malley has never played the victim, but she's still a "scarred" young woman. She seizes the opportunity to help Ben restart his life, in part to atone for her silence about the events that sent her rescuer to prison. 

Ben can't resist Heather's free-spirited approach to life, and she can't resist his reluctant charm. Neither intends to fall in love, but when dangers from their past threaten their connection they discover just how fiercely they're willing to fight for each other and their future.

Hauntingly Beautiful

This book had me entranced all day while I was listening. MK Chester writes this story taking place almost 100 years ago, but the story transcends time. Ben has recently been released from jail for murder. When he bumps into Heather, the girl he saved when he committed the crime, their instant attraction is strong, but their connection from history even stronger. Ben's past is something that continually haunts him, and when new murders begin to start, there is no other suspect. Or is there? This book is full of suspense, intrigue, faith, hope and love. I found myself immersed in the book trying to figure out the hows and whys of what happened. It includes so many topics that are still prevalent, from mental illness to domestic abuse and it's intricately woven into a love and redemption story.

Jennifer Groberg captures each of the characters perfectly. Her narration is wonderfully executed, each person with their own voice, the right amount of angst and emotion. I think she did a beautiful job with it and look forward to more.

Reminiscent Listen!

Tied Together by MK Chester takes place almost a century ago. Having grown up watching The Waltons, I could visualize so much from this book. This book is so much more than a period listen. It is full of healing, hope, redemption, and love. The author did a fabulous job developing the characters and creating the atmosphere with vivid imagery. Jennifer Groberg's narration was spot on. She gave the right emotions and inflections to her voice. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator. I'm glad I tried something outside my typical genre, and am grateful that times have changed.

Suspenseful!

This was my first M.K. Chester's book, and won't be the last. This is the third book in the Bryeton Series. I love Ben and Heather's story. The storyline is suspenseful and filled with mystery, intrigue, and romance. Jennifer Groberg did an amazing job with the narration. I enjoyed my listening, and totally recommend this audiobook.
