Publisher's Summary

A devoted small-town mayor confronts an old flame over the fate of a historic inn in this delightful romance from author Joy Avery.

Honeybees, history, and small-town charm are what Honey Hill, North Carolina, is all about. Its mayor, Lunden Pierce, will stop at nothing to protect the town’s historical landmarks and distinctive character. She’s Honey Hill’s greatest champion.

But everything changes when Lunden’s childhood sweetheart, Quade Cannon, returns to town. Though Quade has fond memories of his summers in Honey Hill, he has no use for the historic inn he’s inherited - or the honeybees living in its yard. His plan is to sell the inn and reap the rewards.

For Lunden, though, the threat to Honey Hill’s history means war. Determined to change Quade’s mind, she immerses him in the town’s charm and its honeybee culture. But while he’s falling for Honey Hill, he falls for Lunden, too - and the feeling is mutual. As their summer romance heats up, Lunden has a choice to make: the town she loves or the man who threatens to change it.

Critic Reviews

“[Inger] Tudor adopts a sweet Southern drawl for Lunden's dialogue that evokes the town's Southern location. The confidence in her voice perfectly reflects the headstrong mayor as she schemes to prevent Quade from selling the local inn to developers. [Pierre] Brooks opts out of the accent, but his booming and jovial performance more than makes up for it. He excels at creating individual voices for the earnest townspeople who welcome Quade with open arms. The narrators' bright and emotive voices highlight the cheeky dialogue and humorous moments in this delightful romance.” (AudioFile Magazine)

“Sensual romance and page-turning plotting make this one sing. This uplifting tale makes a persuasive argument that true love exists.” (Publishers Weekly

Struggles to that first real chance at forever

Lunden Pierce and Quade Cannon had to maneuver through a lot to have there chance at Forever. There was no guarantee they would make it. Watching their journey was the fun part. These two were young their first time around. A second chance to see where things could go was not on either of their agendas 23-years later. I very much liked getting to know the mayor, her son, the town of Honey Hill and the various characters,

Nice to meet you Joy Avery, Inger Tudpr, and Pierre Brooks.

Horrible narrator

The story may be interesting but I can’t/won’t finish it because the male narrator is horrible! He stumbles over the words like a beginning reader!

Great book!

This book was a romance written in a small Carolina town which could also be any small town in the south. Characters so similar to those I’ve known and loved. Loved the second chance to a romance meant to be when characters have evolved to the people they’re meant to be.
