Meant To Be 

(Button Jar  #3)


Fiona McCallum

(Goodreads Author)

Meant To Be carries where book 2 in the series left off. The main difference being that Meant To Be spans around a year, although that does include several months with the turn of a page.

Settling back into the farm with Jake sees Emily focussing on rebuilding her dream cottage, only not to be a bed and breakfast as initially planned.  Also in Meant To Be we finally see Emily standing up for herself, making her own decision.  Although she does still procrastinate and rely on friends and neighbours.  No spoilers…

David and Barbara are still her best friends an Emily comes to their rescue when they are facing a tough period in their lives and a little earlier Emily realises that she is not as alone as she first thought as local townsfolk rally to help with some of her projects.

Again, narrator Jennifer Vuletic must receive accolades for her narration of Meant To Be.  She has a remarkable vocal range assuming she provide all character voices.  I have commented more than once that a narrator can make or break an audiobook.

Fiona McCallum’s books are an easy read, set in Australia and often it is easy to identify with, or remember someone who was ‘just like that’ in my home town.

I like reading/listening to, Australian authors and stories and as previously mentioned Jennifer Vuletic is brilliant in making Wattle Creek come alive.
