Publisher's Summary

Aren’t Small Towns Supposed to Be Boring?

Overnight, a shiny new business opens on Chancey, Georgia’s Main Street, with a manager straight from New York City, who doesn’t find the South charming, at all. Carolina’s bookstore is also opening on Main Street. If she can keep Patty’s mind on books instead of a new romance. 

Then, when a secret wedding catches everyone off guard, a springtime tornado in Chancey just seems like icing on the cake. (Wedding cake, that is.)

Trains still run by Crossings, the B and B for rail road enthusiasts. Ruby still sells coffee and muffins. And kids still get out of school for the summer.

However, even in a small town, change is constant.

New jobs mean a move for long-time Chancey residents. Cancelled plans lead to moves across the state - and broken hearts. Graduations means new chapters. And babies mean...well....

Babies mean nothing will ever be the same again.

Loving All the Drama!!

Chancey books always rate a 5 for me. The humble way of the writing and the spot on storytelling by the narrator makes it so hard to put these books down.

This one was especially exciting because it was chalked full of drama around every bend. The ending cliffhanger will blow your mind.

The continuing adventures of life in Chancey

I have enjoyed all the books in this series. This one does stand by itself but I highly recommend reading the books in order. If you are looking for a story about life in a small town this series might be for you.


The narration continues with the same narrator, Suzanne Barbetta. Her narration is excellent.

I was given this audio book at my request and have left tis review voluntarily. Now on to the next book in this series.

I'm so involved in these character's lives!!

So, book 4, Chancey Jobs, is, so far, my favorite. I'm getting to know the characters and feel like I have invested in their stories. (Don't you just love books/series that do that!??) Carolina is settling in and realizing she likes the people in the town, even though they are flawed in their own way.
This one is focusing on Will, the oldest son and the changes he has made in his life. Just as all good parents do, they have to learn to let their adult kids make their own mistakes. So dang hard, but so dang necessary.
The introduction of Jordan and the new coffee shop was fun. But, my favorite part of the new coffee shop was Ruby's, owner of the coffee/muffin hangout, response.
Lainey's story absolutely drove me crazy, but, I felt like I knew what was going on, just didn't understand why she wasn't being her 'forthcoming' self. Maybe that will come to light in the the next book.
I love how Carolina reminded herself and Jackson of how important it is to not allow distance to come into their marriage. Even after so much time, it is still WORK.
As in the other books, I found myself shaking my head at certain characters, and laughing at others. I love the inner dialogue that we are privy to with Carolina and Suzanne Barbetta, the narrator, brings her thoughts to life for me. She has a perfect southern accent for Carolina, but, oh, how I love Mrs and her 'look down the nose' attitude that she brings to life. I can see her standing, back straight, head held high, every time Suzanne speaks.
Book 4, here I come!!
I HIGHLY recommend this book and the entire series!

doormat caro

Duck and weave and procrastinate whenever possible- Caro's life motto!!! Caro continues to retain her title of Mrs Doormat Central. Everyone tells her what to do and she does it like an automaton. I'm glad Jackson still finds something there to stay with her. Will is like his mom and gets steamrolled by Anna and her family constantly. This family functions as one brain. They let others decide for them and then just suffer silently. Martyrs and doormats!! I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review.

Family

Looking forward to Will's graduation, Carolina is in for a big shock. The children are all growing up, each with their problems.
Narration as always is excellent
