Publisher's Summary

Seven women, seven days. A lot can happen. There are three things that Amy Forrester loves most in the world: Jo, her wife of 15 years; spending time with her closest friends; and her cabin in the woods. What better way to spend the week between Christmas and New Year's than having all three!

When she invites her three best friends to join her and Jo in their mountain hideaway, all she expects is good food, fine wine, and lively conversation. Unfortunately for Amy, there are three things that she doesn't count on: her best friend's relationship is falling apart; her two other friends share a secret that causes nothing but conflict and discomfort; and the arrival of Jo's fly-by-the-seat-of-her-pants niece Darby, who has a habit of leaving broken hearts in her wake.

Childhood friends, new lovers, and old rivals share beginnings, endings, and the uncommon bonds of friendship in a story filled with romance and possibility.

The Magic Acre

Jo and Amy are getting their cabin ready for their friends to arrive for their Christmas and New Year getaway. Seven women can create a lot of feelings and conflict. Lots of possibilities for new beginnings and endings. Erotic scenes. Marvelous performance. Recommend.

Not her best

I'm going to start this off by saying, generally speaking I like Georgia Beers' work, this however was not her best. It's been on my wishlist for a while because having so many main characters in a book, especially a romance book , makes it very hard to get attached to the characters. If it were a much longer book, maybe a series of books and you had time to get to know them, then maybe you'd feel invested in the characters. However, much of the time I was listening to the book wondering "wait, which one is she again?" Also there's a lot of youth bashing in the book, so if you're younger than ... 40? You might be offended.

***Spoilers Ahead***

Pros:
Jo and Amy. Healthy, loving relationship, that didn't seem overdone or overly mushy.
POC character (which the author refrained from referring to as 'exotic')
Cute dog.
....
Cons:
Pretty much every other character?
Darby, the 20 something character which sort of just felt like an embodiment of 'everything that's wrong with these damn kids these days! *shakes fist*' tbh it felt like the author was pissed at some youngin' while she was writing this book and instead of blaming the character for having faults she took the easy way out and just blamed her age/generation.
Dated. Blockbuster? A good place to work? ...Where does Darby work now? Toys r us?
The workaholic g/f (who I can't remember the name of) was clearly suffering from panic attacks, anxiety, that never gets addressed.
The one POC character saying: In this day and age I'd probably be more criticized for being gay than being black. (paraphrasing obvs.) ... bro... no... that's just.... no.
Also the author played it a little free and loose with the word "dyke" which I know some people don't mind, but I cringe every time I hear it.

I'm going to wrap this up by saying if this is your first Georgia Beers book, don't judge all her work by this one. Choose a different starting point. She's done much better stuff than this.

Breaking Darby's fingers

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I can't tell you how many times that I started to smile like an idiot while listening.

What other book might you compare Fresh Tracks to and why?

Not sure.

What about Natalie Duke’s performance did you like?

I really enjoyed it. I think that you could tell who was talking just by the voice change and that isn't always the case with audio books.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

"I see you." Loved that moment.

Any additional comments?

I don't know that I have disliked a really sweet character as much as I did Darby. I hated that it, to me, crossed a line. That moment upset me during the rest of the book. I needed blood pressure medication at one point. LOL That is honestly why I didn't give it 5 stars. That moment just made me angry. Which a good writer sometimes has that effect. However, other than that, I really enjoyed it. Love all the relationships.

Fun Read!

Another great Georgia Beers story. Loved the characters and the groups interaction. The location was equally developed. Natalie Duke's reading added another layer of depth.

New Year’s Holiday

I enjoyed all the characters. Each person invited to the cabin has weaknesses to overcome. Walls to break down. Self forgiveness. Wish there was a follow-up on what happened to each person after getting home from the cabin. The narrator is excellent. She conveyed great character emotions.

Disappointing

Perhaps the worst Beers book I've listened to. Usually I love her stuff, but this story is not good. Wish I hadn't bought it and not sure if I'll finish.
