Publisher's Summary

Is passion still possible the second time around? 

Poppy Valente has the world in the palm of her hand until fate steals from her the one thing that matters most—her wife, Carly. When breast cancer ends their life together, Poppy finds herself at a loss as to how to begin to live again. 

Julia Johnson is running to Carly's Sound with her newborn daughter, Tallulah, in search of the path to her future. On a chance meeting two years after Carly's death, these two women form a bond of friendship that lays the foundation for something more.

WOW

I loved this book, the story was amazing, at the end Carlie said something about dying and it reminded of a very good friend who died exactly 10 years ago from BC, who said she will not die she will just go to a Carnaval in Brazil.
I loved Paige McKinny she is excellent.

This is a book I would listen to often. Such heartbreaking, heartfelt love story. All at the same time. Wow! Ali Vali has never disappointed me with her stories. And Paige McKinney did a great job. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, so I’ll just say cheers to Carly’s Story!!!

Made me Laugh and Cry

This book hit home for as I am in Poppys position of losing my wife who I helped raise our daughter who she had before we were together. It was less than two years ago that I lost my wife. The feelings are so relatable. I hope I will find that love again someday.

If Only

Pretty good, if a bit simplistic, would have been better if the author hadn't reverted to the lamest, most cliched break up scene possible. I have enjoyed most of Ali Valli's books and this one was cruising along until the weak crutch way too many romance writers seemingly feel obligated to include. Still a good book but could have been so much better.

Wow

A really good story that will make you cry. I really wish we could get these kind of Hallmark movie types made. Anyway a good listen and a good book overall.

Ali Vali. So Great

Ali Vali never goes wrong, in my opinion, and she is so strong here. I love her books because she is so creative in different ways. She doesn’t write the same story over and over again. I never know what to expect, and I’m always happy I chose one of her titles.
This book was so sweet in so many different ways. Two love stories being told simultaneously but flowing so well that I never felt jerked in and out of one or the other. And, hey, I’m just putting it out there that I feel like there’s plenty of room for a book 2!
Paige McKinney is not my favorite narrator. Just my personal taste, but I felt she did a great job on this book. Buy it and enjoy!

Beautiful love story times 2

I was looking forward to this book being on audio and it exceeded my expectations. This is 2 beautiful love stories in one book and Ali Vali did an excellent job giving each story the attention it deserved. Paige McKinney did an excellent job narrating! A heart warming, tear jerking, sweet story. I highly recommend.
