Awesome read and Awesome narration..



Don’t listen to this book unless you have a good sense of humor.

What can I say about this book? Other than I absolutely loved it. Why? Because of Amy McFadden. She was just phenomenal. So many characters she was able to do and so many emotions. This was the best narration I’ve ever heard. You can’t go wrong with a book that’s free with KU and $1.99 through Audible.

It was a story about a 59 year old man having an affair with a 26 year old woman and the problems the son of the man and the sister of the girl have trying to break them up, all the while falling in love with each other. And the man, Tag, and the girl, Lilly, you couldn’t help like them both with their May/December relationship. And while Ryan and Emily tried to break the couple up there were times, many times, I had to stop to wipe the tears from my eyes from laughing so hard.

This story was warm and loving and caring and there was always the grief that came from trying to make up for your past mistakes.

And the characters in this book were great, especially Chloe, the 12 year old daughter of Emily you couldn’t help but love. She wasn’t a snot-nosed little witch that you hated. She didn’t pout or whine or cry. She was just a cool kid. And the others: Gigi, the grandmother, was an awesome old woman. Brooke, Emily’s sister, was stuffy but sweet. But the best of all was Mrs. Meisterburger. She was the funniest book character I’ve ever read about.

There was desire throughout this book, which I love, but the sex was all fade-to-black, which is OK by me as long as there is desire and sexual tension. The F-bomb was used about 11 or 12 times.

I couldn’t complain about one thing being wrong with this book, unless it was that I hated to see it end. However, I don’t think you’ll enjoy it near as much just reading it as you would listening to it.

The relationship between Ryan and Emily is left at HFN but the May/December one has no solution whatsoever. Tag and Lilly just stopped being mentioned so I'm assuming they'll show up in the next book.

As to the narration: Awesome, phenomenal, wonderful, emotional, funny, etc, etc.

Mackinac Island in disguise!

This contemporary romance has all the right elements. Quirky characters, a beautiful setting, a handsome but flawed hero, a beautiful but flawed heroine, seemingly insurmountable obstacles and fascinating supporting characters. I highly recommend this book... especially with Amy McFadden bringing it to life with her narration.
To add to the fun, Wenniway Island is really Mackinac Island, Michigan in disguise, with a few fictional changes of course! So if you've been there, you'll enjoy the book even more.

Terrible narration

The narration is terrible. Poor lisping valley girl impression. Drove me nuts. Will not listen to anything with this narrator.

Not sure as overall very boring

Many. She is the only reason I finished the book. She is an amazing narrator

It's simple, I Loved It!

A sweet love story complimented by Amy McFadden's fun, happy reading, made for a lovely, cute story. I loved all the characters and the made up island in Michigan, which I happen to be from. Spend that credit. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series!!
