Belle O’Brien, the woman behind the warmest voice in Virginia radio, has one problem: her oldies show is a solid-gold hit, but her love life is an off-the-charts disaster.
Her prospects for a husband are small-town slim. Will it be smooth-talking Patrick Reese, who launched her radio career? Moody but handsome David Cahill, WPER’s enigmatic broadcast engineer? Matthew the Methodist, her oh-so-available pastor? Or the mysterious radio listener who signs his letters to her, “All Ears in Abingdon”?
While Norah Silver-Smyth, proprietor of The Silver Spoon and Belle’s faithful encourager, cooks up her own delicious recipe for happily-ever-after, Belle embarks on a journey toward joy filled with humor, tenderness, and endless surprises in this winsome tale with two happy endings!

My two cents worth
Liz Curtis Higgs always weaves a wonderful story – but in this first contemporary novel of hers (that I’ve read), her humor shines through in ways you don’t see in her compelling Highland saga. The ‘sweetness’ and ‘sassiness’ of Belle O’Brian coupled with David’s sarcasm, wit, and tenderness makes for an innocently surprising romance, where both must learn to trust and one must learn to forgive.
With her usual craft, she brings spiritual truths to the forefront of the story and leaves the reader emotionally and spiritually enlightened in the end.
