Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Junebug Farms, a successful, well-known animal shelter in upstate New York, where every day brings something new - love, stress, heartbreak, warmth - and not just from the animals.

Since inheriting Junebug Farms from her grandmother, Jessica Barstow's life revolves around it, and she has no time or energy for much else. Not hobbies. Not fun. Not love - certainly not love. And the new, young, and hip TV reporter who's been sent to host the upcoming fundraising telethon isn't going to change that - even though it seems like she wants to change everything else.

Sydney Taylor has zero desire to cover human interest stories in some Podunk, upstate New York hamlet, but that's where she's landed - for now. So she'll make the best of it until she can get something bigger. In the meantime, she is assigned to host the annual live fundraising telethon for some local animal shelter. It's just a job; she doesn't have time to get attached. And it doesn't matter that the rigid, keeps-to-herself CEO of the shelter is resistant to anything Sydney suggests. Or that she's super attractive and sexy. That doesn't matter at all....

Telethon Love

Wow! Ms. Beers surprises at every turn! Finally rid of Anna! Sheesh !! Another book that has so many twists and turns -- this lady writes with so much passion and deep character insights! This is another gem -- puppy love is a great series -- more please! Ms Beers nerve disappoints!! Keep on writing !!

Enjoyable end to this series!

There are both positives and negatives to listening to a series of audiobooks one after the other. The positives are you remember everything from previous books and are already invested in the characters. A negative can also be that you remember everything from the previous books. lol Like when the narrator - especially when it's the same one - forgets which voice she used for which character and flips them. Such was the case here. Everyone knows I love me some Abby Craden, but yeah - Jessica's voice in book 3 was Catherine's in book 2 and vice versa. Woops. And both audiobooks were released just months apart. In the end it was okay once I made the adjustment because Jessica's voice in book 2 was a little too old for the character. Beyond that - and the fact that Beers suddenly appeared to learn the word "beat" to describe a pause - and used it what seemed to be no less than 30 times - I actually liked this audiobook the best of the three. Overall, this was a good series. I love Junebug Farms - their mission, the development of the characters, the animals and even the location - an unnamed town in upstate New York. As far as romances go, this is a sweet one. When Jessica Barstow, the owner and CEO of Junebug Farms, learns that a new to the area TV news reporter will be taking over the farm's annual fundraising telethon, she is less than pleased. The previous reporter had done it for numerous years and Jessica was comfortable with her and happy with the result. So when she meets with Sydney Taylor to discuss what she has in mind to modernize the telecast, Jessica is worried that Sydney's new way of doing things won't bode well for their most important fundraising event of the year. No matter how attractive she is. Or that both of them felt an immediate bolt of attraction the moment they met. This series really is enjoyable and I will miss the characters. Well - not the annoying Anna. (I guess there always needs to be one character to play the foil.) I mean, who doesn't want to hang out with a bunch of gorgeous lesbians running an animal shelter, their equally stunning love interests, and a whole bevy of wonderful animals? Fuggedaboutit!

Better to sit , then run away

In this delightfully beautiful sweet animal shelter there is love around. There must be something in the water they say. G. Beees and A. Craden is as always another great pair for an audible book.
