The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen (Audiobook Review)
In The Peachkeeper, we meet Willa Jackson, the Walls of Water mysterious prankster during high school and later the non-outdoorsy sporting goods store owner. We also meet Paxton Osgood, Willa's opposite in so many ways. Their grandmothers used to be the best of friends, but drama had separated the families for years. That is, until the renovations of the Blue Ridge Madam reveals secrets that have been buried for years.
I was quite shocked at how quickly this story drew me in. I immediately adored Willa, and Paxton grew on me. I liked the magic and the mystery, though subtle, that was woven into the story. And, the narrator, Karen White brought the perfect amount of Southern to enhance the tale even more.
So, this is where I must confess . . . I adored the story with unexpected surprise! I found myself personally recommending it a multitude of times since finishing it. I even purposefully sought out another Sarah Addison Allen tale for my next listen! I guess that goes to show me on passing judgment before giving a book or author a try, right?!?
