Waldon (From the Jump) offers a light-hearted contemporary romance located in Redford, GA, where everyone is family, even if they fight from time to time. Jasper, a rich, beloved Redfordonian and Carter’s grandfather, has passed away. In Jasper’s will, 10 million dollars is bequeathed to the winners of his game, which involves a series of challenges to be completed by pre-selected teams of two. Jess, a freelance editor, is paired with her high school nemesis, Nikki. Carter is sure he and his partner will win the game to continue his grandfather’s work. As the teams compete, Jess and Carter build a deep friendship, and they soon wonder if a small-town girl and a city boy can make it work. Filled with Southern hospitality, high school grudges, family, friendship, and romance, Waldon’s latest will surely bring a smile. Told from alternating points of view, narrators Brittany Pressley, Lee Osorio, Catherine Taber, and Mark Deakins help listeners track the different characters and bring the small Southern town to life.
VERDICT Waldon’s novel is sure to be a hit with Hallmark movie lovers and romance novel enthusiasts. This charming romance checks all the boxes.
