Audio Book Review: Charming the Troublemaker by Pepper D. Basham

Charming Troublemaker audio

Charming the Troublemaker was an absolutely wonderful story! And the narration was fabulous! I enjoyed it so much.

This story is book two in the Mitchell’s Crossroads series, and I have listened to book one as well (which was also a great audio book, by the way). However, I believe readers (or listeners) can jump right in and enjoy Charming the Troublemaker even if they haven’t read book one.

I loved moving on to Alex and Rainey’s story after having met them both in book one. It was amazing to me the way the author was able to totally redeem Alex’s character in this book. I honestly did not like him in book one. But, wow, I couldn’t help but love both Alex and Rainey in this story. And Rainey’s daughter was so precious.

I loved this story from beginning to end. This will be a book that I listen to over and over again!

I received a complimentary copy of this audio book.  All opinions are my own. I also had previously purchased the kindle version of this story.

Rainey Mitchell is doing just fine. She has a great job helping children in need, her family is around her, she is mother to a fabulous little girl, and is getting over the betrayal of her ex-husband. Dr. Alex Murdock is not doing so well, as he is forced to work at a rural university, his life is full of secrets surrounding his family, and he has to start over in a new town. Luckily, Rainey, the daughter of his landlord, is there to get him settled. Rainey just wants to stay away from the new professor, who has the same charm as her ex. Unfortunately, they seem to need each other. Rainey needs his grant-writing ability to save her program, and Alex is terrible at the lecturing at which Rainey excels. The two must work together to fulfill their goals, but will they be able to do it? Rainey’s insecurities and Alex’s obsession with protecting his family could be their undoing.

      I have listened to lots of audio books and three of those were Pepper Basham’s. A Twist of Faith, Charming the Troublemaker, and Just the Way You Are. They are some of my favorites! I’d also recomment Janet Ferguson’s audio books, and Becky Wade’s Bradford Sisters series on audio. Joanne Bischof’s Lady and the Lionheart and Sons of Blackbird Mountain also had great audio! Just to name a few!
