Publisher's Summary

Carrigans of Circle C, book two: Some love stories have to begin with a falling-out-of-love story.... Mattie Carrigan's been helping her rodeo-cowboy husband, Wes Bishop, run his family's Tennessee walking horse operation since they were married 19 years ago. Blessed with twin daughters who've recently left for college, Mattie is looking forward to this new stage in her and Wes' life. But when she finds a strange key in her husband's jacket, she's forced to admit that Wes has been quiet and distant lately. Turns out he has been keeping secrets. And he's not the only one. Even the rancher next door, Nat Diamond - a friend Mattie could always count on in the past - seems to be holding something back from her. Good Together is for anyone who has ever pondered what it means to be married or had to reinvent her life when one breaks down. It's about having your heart broken but being strong enough to survive and love again.

Spineless

Why on earth did this author write such a spineless character as Mattie? I kept listening out of desperation of lack of cell service to get another book, that Mattie would get some sort of fire under her and do what ANY OTHER woman would have done in this situation and that is to give both Wes and Nat the middle finger. Having trained, ridden, endurance raced, and rodeoed in my life, I have never, and I mean never run across any horsewoman worth her salt that was such a doormat and spineless.

The characters had zero depth what so ever. All the male characters could have been replaced by a neanderthal who would have had more depth and conversational skills in them. And who on earth lets their husband walk away, take everything they have and not once at least give him a good raking over the coals.

The narration sounds almost computer generated. Monotone, no real inflection. All I can think of is the narrator was as bored as I was.

There were distracting moments when in the middle of an (what should be) emotional situation Mattie looks at the puppy and thinks, 'gosh that puppy is cute'.

The ending. OMG! Really? After I slogged through this, only because I was in an area for four days, yes gathering cattle in the Rockies, and I had ZERO cell service, this was what I was relegated to. So slog on I did. It got kinda funny. Like watching the old emotionless Batman and Robin cartoons. Listen like you are watching old bad westerns or Mystery Science 2000.

I hate giving a bad review. Truly I do. But the absolute unreal quality and doormat nature of Mattie brought it out of me.

Good Together

I have really enjoyed this series so far. I think this one made me stop and think how quickly life can change and love that you thought was forever came to a screeching halt. How when you feel like life is over something you never could have dreamed up shows up and makes your life better than you could have imagined. Sometimes you have to go through the unimaginable to get to the really good stuff. That is what this book was all about!

Great Book!

Great book. Wish it hadn't ended when it did, though. It was a bit abrupt. Wanted to hear about wedding details, how they got along after moving in n, etc.

Mattie

An emotionally heartbreaking journey to go on with Mattie. This was personal for me, I went on a similar journey. CJ Carmichael definitely made you feel every emotion. I liked this story. Narration was great.

I really enjoyed this book. The family unit, the feeling invoked by the narrator, and the storyline were all excellently

As I read this book I felt the way that Maddie Who is seeing the songs and experiencing. Must be a great author and a great narrator to invoke those feelings into me. I felt anger at Wes, pain for the girls and frustration for the whole situation.

Wait.. What?.. 😡

I’ve listened to over 300 romance audiobooks during the last 18 months, but this one was good then went really bad. The ending was rushed and ended abruptly.

Comfortable

Sometimes in life people feel a false sense of ‘love’ when it’s actually just comfort and complacency.

Neighbor to Lover

Maddie's husband of 19 years decides he wants to call it quits and sell their ranch and all of their horses. Maddie feels like the rug has been pulled out from under her. With her daughters at college and her husband gone, she has a lot of figuring out to do. In the process her neighbor Nate becomes an invaluable help, friend, and finally more. Wonderful story of a woman going through a rough patch and coming out the other side.The narrator Emily is wonderful.

DoorMatty!!!

I was so annoyed with methe lead character in this book. I wanted to shake her she was a doormat!!! She was letting her husband get away with selling her home and lively hood from under her nose. She had still not gone to a solicitor I was so frustrated she was oblivious to Nates love. Apart from the times I wanted to stamp on my phone. I found this book good with well developed characters.
