Always on My Mind

Narrated by Annie Greene I haven’t read all of the books in the author’s Lucky Harbor series but have enjoyed those I have read. But while I completely enjoyed the narration in this latest entry, the story, while cute in parts, has a few too many flaws for me to recommend. I thought I was ...
