Audio: One Summer Night - Caridad Pineiro

Maggie Sinclair has tried everything to save her family's business. Her options are dwindling, and she needs someone who can turn things around--fast. Problem is, the only person who can help her is trouble with a capital T. The Sinclair and Pierce families have been feuding for nearly 30 years, but that hasn't stopped Owen Pierce from noticing Maggie. And he likes what he sees--a lot. But getting involved would mean risking his family, his inheritance, and above all, his heart. Can Maggie and Owen keep their simmering attraction at bay--or will mixing business and pleasure bring nothing but heartache?

For review

My thoughts:
A sweet little book about forbidden love. Though, they were best friends in a way as kids. They always played together. Then he did not show up at the beach or stayed away. And now they are grown ups who can tell their dads to shove it. I mean come on, dads. Ha. SO yes they do not really care.

Maggie loves her work, but her dad can be a handful and does not like changes. And the business is not going well. She is so busy, so stressed, and I must say, work really played a big part in this book. At least her did. His, well he was at work, but we did not see as much as we did with her work. And her love for it really made me like her.

Owen works with his dad in rel estate. And sure he is busy too, but not as stressed as a certain Maggie. He is more stressed cos his dad is being a pain. He was a really sweet guy, normal you know.

And these two meet here and there and finally take the chance to see if there can be more. Fathers be damned.

And there is  lie that will cause drama, but it is not a lie told to her, but still she gets all angry and honestly, there drama was a bit forced. Why was she angry over it? It was not about her directly. Well it is and is not. But it is not a lie told to her. And I felt she over reacted. I am glad that it was over quickly. It is not a spoiler cos when you see it you know that is the thing that will cause drama.

Last thoughts:
Friends, the beach, and romance. What more can one want.

Narrator Veronica Worthington
I took me a while to warm up to her. I mean I liked her voice from the start, but her male and female voices sounded the same. Her female voices sounded the same. Which means that almost everyone sounded the same. 
But she was a truly good narrator that still made me enjoy it. That made me forgive the range

  3. It's been a while since I've read one by her. Thanks for the review. I know what you mean about the narrator, glad you did finally warm up to her, only a few narrators I can think of do a great job between sexes and same sex character voices.

    1. Same here.
      I know some great ones too, and it does say something that I still liked her even if her range was not that good. But I do feel that she can become better

  11. I haven't heard of this one before. I am happy to hear that you liked the narrator despite her use of the same voice for all of the characters. What is with these dads?
