I was so looking forward to hearing this audio book. I am not a fan of Dick Hill because his voice can be annoying. I definately didn't like the accent and voice of Schyler Crandall. Halfway through the first disk and I have given up. The voices are just to annoying for me to listen to 13 disks and 15 hours. I've "read" at least 200 audio books and I've never stopped one until now. Very, very disappointed. I wish there were another version with different readers.

Schyler Crandall returns to Heaven, Louisiana when her father has a heart attack to discover the family business in ruins. Schyler is strong, likable character and I enjoyed the love story. However, I thought that were a few too many subplots going on at once that detracted from the story.

Schyler Crandall left home six years ago when she found out her sister was pregnant with her fiance's baby. But when her father has a massive heart attack, she returns home to Belle Terre to find her family's business, Crandall Logging, on the edge of bankruptcy with a huge loan payment coming due. In order to save the business, Schyler must put her trust into Cash Boudreaux, a man who grew up on Belle Terre property but was never part of the family.

I think I waited about 20 years too long to read this book. What I might have liked in the late 80's or 90's doesn't appeal to me now. The heroine is somewhat likeable but has too many TSTL moments. She also has way too many blind spots when it comes to her family. Cash is alpha to the extreme. He broods, he drinks, and he has sex with every woman in the county. I didn't like that he was seeing other women when he was with Schyler. That was a big turn off.

There were far too many villains in this book. It got very hard to find someone to root for. But, I can still say that the story was still very readable and I wanted to see how it ended. I would call this book a stepping stone for Sandra Brown. My rating: 2.5 Stars.
