At Last

At Last
Jill Shalvis
Lucky Harbor series: #5
Hachette Audio 2012
Narrated by: Erin Bennett.
Time: 9hours 21minutes.

Goodreads summary:
Amy Michaels moves to the small town of Lucky Harbor, where her grandma hiked the Pacific Northwest rain forest for one glorious summer some decades prior, hoping for the same life-changing experience. She gets life-changing alright, in the form of a sexy forest ranger Matt Bowers. She also gets something she never knew she wanted much less needed - love.

I enjoyed this easy listen, and while I preferred the narrator of the #4 book, Suehyla El Attar, Erin Bennett is a pleasant reader, and while I thought she didn't boost the story up to 5 stars, she did not detract from the story either.

I enjoyed the story of Matt and Amy and what I especially liked about this book was Amy stepping up to help out Riley, a teen in trouble.  Because of her own background experience of a difficult growing up time, Amy is able to reach out to Riley successfully.  

As well, I liked the way Amy began to re-establish connection with her mother, gradually and meaningfully. Part of the story is walking in the footsteps of her grandmother who also spent some significant time years ago in Lucky Harbor.  As Amy finds out more about her grandmother she also discovers herself.

With all that, it is the next story I am really looking forward to, that of Josh.

Audio Challenge 2013  No. 2 book.
