Julia Whelan delivers a charming, romantic listening experience set in small-town Maine. Recently finding herself single again, Laurie Sassalyn comes upon a wooden duck decoy and an old letter among the belongings of her late great-aunt, Dot. After a con artist steals the decoy, Laurie and her friends set out on a heist to get it back. When Laurie reconnects with her high school boyfriend, sparks fly. Whelan nails the snappy dialogue and captures the tension of the second-chance romance. She creates realistic characters and relationships through her dynamic range of emotions. Her performance shines in her portrayal of Laurie's fierce independence and strength. While the novel seems a bit heavily focused on the decoy caper, the likable characters and heartwarming story offer plenty to root for.
