What happens when a beautiful, smart, driven southern belle meets a handsome, equally driven man who suffers from PTSD? Charlene Pickford finds herself in a pickle after landing the job of her dreams in New York City. Her boss, Alan, might be attractive, but when it becomes obvious that he's hiding some deep, obviously very dark secret, she feels an overwhelming urge to flee to keep from falling in love with a guy who is so obviously wrong for her. Or is it too late?

She could go back to Georgia to help her parents - even though they've made it clear that they don't want her hovering. Or she can stick around and see what happens with her career and her feelings for Alan. Decisions, decisions, decisions....

Christian fiction lovers will enjoy the southern accents, the food, and the ways these belles handle their new home and friends in the big city, with just the right balance of humor and drama, in this contemporary Christian romance novel.

Love this good, clean, and fun audio book!

This is the first book that I've listened to or read by Debby Mayne and I will definitely be looking for more by her. This book kept me interested all the way through and I didn't want to stop listening. The best part about it is that it is Christian Fiction and is clean! Debby shows that you can write a great book without all of the swearing and sex. That's hard to find any more. The characters are well-rounded, interesting and fun! Kandi Peppers did an amazing job with narration. Several of the characters, including the lead, are from the south and the accent was perfect! I live in NC and I think Kandi is the first narrator I've listened to that completely nailed it! The combination of author and narrator is perfect. I would recommend this book to anyone loves to read good, clean, and fun books, without them being so preachy.
I was given this audio book by the author, narrator, or publisher in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Have you listened to any of Kandi Peppers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't listened to any of her other narrations; however, being Southern myself - I can APPRECIATE her genuine respect toward our characteristics and mannerisms. Very well done.

Any additional comments?

WONDERFULLY written and narrated.
