When Lightning Strikes by Brenda Novak - Audio Verson

Audio Version

This is Book 1 of the Whiskey Creek series. And my first
Brenda Novak read. If you want to stop reading here,
let me just say, I have already bought and downloaded
Book 2, When Snow Falls. When Lightning Strikes was a
terrific story from the beginning. Once Gail and Simon
made their way to Whiskey Creek, there were quite a few
new characters introduced.  But I never felt over run with them.
 They were spaced out well. And they each had a reason to be
in this story besides just setting up for future tales.
Whiskey Creek is a very typical small town. I grew up
in one. Moved to another one. Loved them both. And I
love reading love stories from them.
The narration was terrific. Amy Rubinate did a great job
with different characters. She was steady and easy to
understand. The reader obviously can make or break a
story. She only made it better for me.
The romance between Simon and Gail builds over time.
They are both strong individuals. I don't think either of them
had any interest in finding ''the one'' any time soon.
But fate does not ask if this is a good time for you.
Whiskey Creek is a terrific place and this story is a great
beginning for this series. I am looking
forward to reading Book Two.
Review by Lisa Hutson


  1. Great review Lisa!
    I have read and enjoyed the Whiskey Creek series, too.
    Amy Rubinate is one of my favorite narrators.
    She brings the story to life!

  2. I am always looking for a good audio book. Thank you for adding this one to my list, Lisa. The Whiskey Creek series sound like one I would really enjoy.
