Danica Snow has always been the smart, practical, and appropriate sister. As a therapist, she prides herself on making reasonable, conservative choices, even if a bit boring, and as part of the Big Sister Program, she has little time for anything more in her life.

Blake Carter is a player. He never gets bored of conquering women, and with his sexy good looks and successful lifestyle, he has no trouble finding willing participants. When his friend and business partner dies in a tragic accident, he suddenly, desperately, wants to change his ways. The problem is, he doesn’t know how to stop doing what he does best.

When Blake walks into Danica’s office, the attraction between them is white hot, but Danica isn't the type to give into the heat and risk her career. Danica’s desire sets her on a path of self-discovery, where she begins to question every decision she’s ever made. Just this once, Danica wants to indulge in the pleasures of life she’s been so willingly ignoring, but with her Little Sister in turmoil and her biological sister’s promiscuousness weighing heavily on her heart, she isn’t sure it’s the right time to set her desires free.

Audiobook ROMANCE Small-town Sweet

Sisters in Love by Melissa Foster is the first book in the Snow Sisters and Love in Bloom series. Set in picturesque Colorado, it shares character growth and a budding romance. Narrated by BJ Harrison, I enjoyed meeting the residents of this small town and being a part of their lives.

Danica Snow a therapist who longs to work with children and teens in need meets Blake Carter, local player, and ski shop owner when he accidentally elbows her at the local coffee shop. Foster takes us on a journey through both of their daily lives as they begin to make changes, face challenges and find their path crossing.

Sisters in Love offered a slow-building romance that starts on rocky ground and moves to friendship as their sizzling chemistry simmers. Their emotions and reactions felt genuine allowing me to want a happily ever after despite the complications.

While it took me longer to warm up to Blake, I did like how he faced things even when it wasn’t what he wanted. Tragedy and loneliness help him grow and discover what matters.

For her part, Danica is a character wrapped up in rules, struggling with jealousy and afraid to reach for her goals. She is on the cusps of change, and she does so in true Danica fashion. One fashion accessory at a time.

This is a small-town romance and threads involving those who interact with Danica and Blake are present. We learn about David and his family, a young woman and her family through the Big Sister program Danica participates in as well as Danica’s vibrant sister.

BJ Harrison was a new to me, narrator. He shares the voice of each character. Don’t laugh, but in the beginning, I thought the narrator was a woman. I am still holding out judgment on this narrator, as I would like to hear him do just a male voice. I found his interpretation of the female voices to be breathy and sedated. All of them sounded medicated.

If you’re looking for a sweet, slow-burning romance with character growth, community, and realistic issues, you’ll enjoy Sisters in Love.

    Breathy and sedated female voices… I have listened to male narrators who do that very same thing, Kim, and it’s really distracting! I mean, I don’t speak like that, and I know you don’t either… It’s like they’re trying to be sexy in a very weird way.
    The story itself sounds compelling, though! I love it when characters question the way they’ve been acting up to a certain point!
    Great review 🙂

    This sounds like a great book. I love those small-town romance stories. It sounds like you need to get used to this narrator though.. I honestly don’t really like it when a man tries to sound as a woman and the other way around. I prefer if they just keep their ‘own’ voice with maybe just a little change. But still.. I definitely have to keep this one in mind. Great review!

    I love your description of the narrator’s voice for the female characters. I often find male narrators’ voices for women a little iffy. Sometimes I think they make them sound really whiny.

    After reading this review, I think I’m going to try audiobooks out. So many bloggers listen to audiobooks but I’ve only tried once and got bored with it so I gave it up.

    Thanks for the review. This one sounds great and just my speed. 🙂

      Name your favorite genre, and I will try and recommend a awesome audiobook, Rowena. If you haven’t borrowed a book @ Audible from anyone, I may be able to gift you one.

    Hmmm…. Not sure about this one. I like the sound of Danica and the small town itself. I was a little concerned about what the thing about her sister’s promiscuousness meant but since you didn’t mention it in your thoughts I’m thinking it wasn’t judgy or a big issue. This may be one I try from the library but I think I’ll go with the print version. I’ve only found a couple of male narrators who can do a woman’s voice in a way that doesn’t drive me up the wall and he doesn’t sound like one of them!

    I read this when it first came out and I remember being really bothered by the forbidden romance/ therapist/ patient thing, but I don’t know why. I am not often bothered by these things in books. Maybe it was just timing..

    I won’t be listening to this one I don’t think. Had to laugh at your discription of the narration! I like small town romances if they are really good, at least a four star? I don’t know. I guess I am on the fence about this one.
