About the book

As Blowing Rock, NC’s JOY Radio talk show host, Everly has discovered fulfillment, but she hasn’t found love, at least not for her—not even from her mother.

Everly Johnson is every man’s dream of the perfect date, even though her audience has never met her. As host for the EnJOYing God’s Best program on JOY Radio in Blowing Rock, North Carolina, she receives countless gifts of flowers and candy from her listeners, some callers being more ardent than others. Everly has no interest in such offerings and promptly bestows the bounty on her mother’s assisted living facility. Everly wants words–heartfelt, meaningful endearments meant for her ears only. She wants a man who will open her eyes to everything she cannot see to make her feel like she’s more than just a voice behind the microphone.

Cameron Boyd is every woman’s dream of the perfect man. He’s intelligent, has a strong work ethic and career, lives on his own, and is downright adorable. But being an introvert can make eye contact with a pretty girl a challenge, let alone saying something coherent–unless it is the one-way conversation he has each Friday with Everly Johnson. Date night for Cam involves sitting alone on his back porch overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains while he dreams of things to say if he were ever to meet her face-to-face.

A chance meeting changes everything.

Will Cam be able to step out of his comfort zone and into the world he has only been able to envision in his mind? Will Everly trust this stranger with her life as well as her heart?

My thoughts

I really enjoyed this story. The only downside I found was that it wasn’t long enough! I It was so delightful I wanted more to read!

I adored the characters. Evie was just the brightest, most wonderful girl. Her disability added to the beauty of her character. Her independence and charm and wit were perfect. I loved how well the author was able to convey everything that she experienced as a person who is blind. Really well done.

I also applaud the ability Heidi had of switching to a POV who could see without a hitch. Flawless execution. I appreciated that Cameron was introverted, as really, we don’t see as many introverted guys as heroes. There should be more of them.

I mentioned I wanted the story to be longer. The romance itself developed quickly, and I wanted a little more time spent on that development of a romantic relationship. I realize though that this book was part of a series box set and it’s possible there was a word cap on the stories included in the series.

Otherwise, beautiful writing, wonderful characters, and just a delightful, fun, positive romantic story. Thank you, Heidi, for allowing me to read an advanced copy of this story.
