Building on the characters she created in her popular Redemption series, author Kingsbury introduces a new progression in the Baxter family drama, Firstborn.
As in her other stories, the latest clips along at a fast pace ably abetted by a fine reading by Sandra Burr. Although she first stepped on a stage as a child, it was in college that Burr discovered her liking for a microphone. Since then she has done numerous voice rolls from commercials to audio books. She's especially adept at romantic stories, and shines in the latest by Kingsbury.
With the initial offering in the Firstborn series, Fame, we meet Hollywood's No. 1 box office draw, Dayne Matthews. We never quite learn what his attraction is for the town of Bloomington, Indiana, but there he is and that's where he first sees Katy Hart, pretty young director of the local children's theatre.
Katy once had other aspirations - she wanted to be a famous actress, but she's found fulfillment and happiness in her work with the children's theatre. Then, she receives a surprising offer that could change her life forever, and perhaps make her old dreams come true.
The chance to star opposite Dayne in his next Hollywood film sounds too good to be true, but stardom with its attendant pitfalls may be more than the two of them have bargained for.
Romance listeners will throughly enjoy.
