What a wonderful beginning to what looks like a great series. Maddie and Boone are forced together due to the terms of a will and neither one is happy about it. Their relationship is certainly filled with lots of angst however all ends up well in the end. Can’t wait to listen to the next book in the series. Eric Dove is an exceptional narrator!
