Publisher's Summary

Intelligent and outspoken, Jessica Barnes left her home back East to help her seriously ill brother run the Springwater Gazette, and arrives in town to find the family and the newspaper in upheaval. Ever efficient, and not shy with her opinions, Jessica rolls up her sleeves and takes charge. Springwater has never met a woman like her - and neither has its mayor, Gage Calloway, a frequent subject of Jessica's journalism.

Sweet Story, Narrator Could Improve

I love Linda Lael Miller and all the Springwater books, I had read them all before listening on audible. I give it 5 stars because the writing is good and the story is good but I will say the narration is lacking; the narrator mispronounced words and when speaking the part of Gage she seemed to rush her speaking to the point of me slowing down the pace because it was so annoying. Otherwise a sweet edition to Springwater.
