Charlie Thurston's narration engages whether in flashbacks of Colton Gentry's high school years or accounts of his present-day return to his hometown. Thurston's fluid transitions transcend leaps in time and credibly illuminate Colton's ongoing affection for Luann, his first love. While Colton speaks in a neutral tone, Thurston's expressions of his interior reveal his struggles with alcohol, a lost career, and grief over his best friend's death, as well as his gratitude when Luann offers him a restaurant job. Thurston's narration maximizes the strong dialogue throughout--whether he's delivering Colton's poignant apologies to those he's wronged, witty repartee with Luann, or the slow burn of their rekindling relationship. Thurston's mild Southern accents add to the charm, as do the descriptions of the restaurant's farm-to-table dishes. S.W. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2024]
