Connor O'Rourke could very possibly be the perfect man. But he's hopelessly in love with Jessica Dunn, and she is determined never to marry or give up her independence to any man. The story begins with a proposal of marriage from Connor and a refusal from Jessica and then leads the reader backward and forward in time to unravel the reasons why this seemingly perfect-for-each-other couple can't seem to start their lives together. Connor's dreams of becoming a chef and opening up his own restaurant become real just as Jessica lands her dream job as the marketing director for the Blue Heron Vineyard. But past events cast a shadow on the present, and Jessica can't bring herself to seize happiness. Listeners will fall in love with Connor as he is willing to wait for Jessica to discover what he already knows—she isn't perfect and neither is he, but they're perfect for each other. Amy Ruminate does a fine job narrating, with believable male voices.
VERDICT An emotionally satisfying romance for fans of Debbie Macomber and Susan Mallery. ["An irresistible, often touching story that is tender, sexy, and hilarious as only Higgins can write it": LJ 12/15 starred review of the HQN: Harlequin pb.]
