After listening to the 3rd book of this disappointing series, it was hard to be believe that anyone would choose to live in Dundee Idaho. In spite of some entertaining moment, this book left me feeling depressed and disillusioned.
When Katie (25) returned to Dundee pregnant and destitute, her family turned her away, not caring if she starved or froze to death. Except for Booker, none of the town's residents showed an ounce of human compassion or kindness toward Katie or her unborn child.
While sympathetic, Katie was too immature and unrealistic to be interesting. She stayed in an abusive relationship with a drug addict for 2 years, probably because her parents never gave her unconditional love and support. It was sad how Katie groveled for approval and affection from her parents, yet ignored the man who genuinely appreciated her.
Ironically, ex-con Booker was the most decent and caring person in the entire town. Booker had previously taken in a disabled man (Dilbert) and an abused dog, then rescued Katie when he founded her stranded on a rural road. However Booker seemed too mature and confident to be interested in the pathetic Katie.
While Booker was a wonderful romantic hero, it did not make sense that he would stay in a community full of vicious gossips and narrow-minded jerks. When Dilbert was beaten by sadistic bullies, no one except Booker was willing to protect him - not the police or church-going residents. Nice!
This book was easy, sweet and had my attention from the beginning. I absolutely loved the characters and, of course, Andi Arndt once again did a fabulous job making them all come to life. I may even read this one again at some point..
