Mallory cancelled her wedding and left Massachusetts to take her honeymoon by herself. On the road, she gets caught in a snow squall and crashes into a tree on Aiden's farm. She wakes up with no recollection of what happened or who she is. Aiden tries to help her regain her memory which she does slowly. Along the way they both also realize that they've fallen for each other. When Mallory finally regains her memory, she leaves Ohio only to realize that she wants to be with Aiden. Aiden has also realized he wants to be with Mallory and they end up finding each other in the airport on the way to see the other. It was a fun read but kind of stressful read. The narrators do a great job.

I enjoyed the first two books in the series more but I enjoyed reading this one. This can be read as a standalone but I enjoyed reading it in order because of all the references to the other books. The book also telegraphs who the next romance will center around.

Mallory and Aiden were both good characters that had good chemistry. the plot and romance developed very quickly but I was happy for them. I especially appreciated that we as the audience knew that Mallory was not in a relationship, even though she did not know.

I had a hard time getting over the premise. Mallory losing her memory and laving with a stranger without any resources of her own would remind me more of a horror movie plot, not a romance one!

If you like the author and have liked the other books in the series, you will like this book.

This book was such a fun read. I absolutely loved the relationship between Aiden and M! This book kept me wanting to know more and noticed myself several times sitting in the car just listening to find out what happens next. The author did really well writing this book & I need more!

This audible was perfect & the narrators where great.

There were so many times that I wanted to DNF this book. It’s a very, very slow book with very little burn. It’s essentially a narrative of the mundane day-to-day life of all the characters in the book. I struggled quite a bit throughout the book to get through it. I’m amazed I did, to be honest. I only wanted to find out if the ending was as predictable as I thought it would be. Spoiler alert - it is.

It didn’t help that neither of the narrators were very good. We have another male voice actor who did terrible female voices. Then we had the female narrator who gave Valley girl voices to the female characters. Not a fan.

I also found the book problematic throughout. The biggest faux pas that I witnessed was that Shannon writes fortunes for cookies and then speaks in an “Asian” accent. This was actually in the book. I was in total disbelief when I heard this. Really? In 2023 we’re doing this? This automatically knocked the book down a whole star for me because it’s highly offensive.

Then we have the preposterous situation in which a Hilton hotel desk clerk who supposedly asks inappropriate questions and makes rude comments about the honeymoon booking at a loud volume. This would never happen in real life, and since it happened at the beginning of the book, it set the tone for a bad book.

Then we have the fact that Mallory wakes up in a strange man’s home, and she doesn’t seem all that concerned about it. Aiden could have been a serial killer for all she knew, but that’s not at all portrayed in the book. It was hard to find this romance a little bit believable with some of the absurd scenarios written.

Then we have Jamie, one of Mallory’s new friends, who annoying uses “big words” awkwardly in her dialogue. I have no idea what the point of this was. I think the intention was meant to be comedic, but I found it tiresome.

And then there are the random inaccuracies. Malloy throws away a danish that hits someone in the back of the head and falls to the floor, but just in the sentence prior, she mentions it being a croissant. So which is it? A danish or croissant? They’re not the same! And then the sentence after mentioning the danish, it goes back to a croissant that gets replaced. Just seems like lazy editing?

I think the most unbelievable part of the book was how no one seemed to check in on Mallory. There wasn’t much explanation on how Mallory’s loved ones try to contact and find her. Again, it was just very unrealistic. If she was truly a missing person, there likely would have been more to it.

I really wanted to like this book. This was an interesting and different premise, but the content just wasn’t there. I really struggled to find anything positive to write about because the negative overshadowed anything that would have been positive. This would be a skip in terms of a recommendation.

Loved this hilarious sweet romance book. It has everything you love about a rom com like small town charm, hot main character, goats and llamas!! Aiden is quite happy with his life on his goat farm with his goats and llama. Mallory cancels her wedding the week of and decides to take the honeymoon by herself. She crashes her car in Bordeaux, Ohio. Now with amnesia from the car crash she finds herself on the farm. The audible narration of this story was wonderful!! I really loved the characters and the flirtation tension you could feel. There is adventure, humor, love and so much more in this story. This book is book # 3 in the Getting Shipped series and can be read as a standalone. I haven’t read the others but want to know as I absolutely loved this one! Many thanks to Dreamscape Media and NetGalley for the Audiobook. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.

This series is just absolutely delightful. Every time I see a new one I get so excited. They’re just perfect.

In this one, we head back to good ole Bordeaux, Ohio via a rather dramatic route. We follow a character suffering from amnesia following an accident. She finds herself stranded in Bordeaux with no memory of who she is.

If you’ve read the other books you know where this will go, but for real it’s adorable and actually a very interesting story along with it.

This can absolutely be a standalone but for real, I’d read them all - so good. Fast paced and adorable.

Thanks to NetGalley for the audio copy of this one!

This was such an adorable romcom. I want to read all the other books in this series now. This series doesn't need to be read in any particular order.

It's got the hometown, forced proximity, amnesia (finding oneself), protective hero, farmlife tropes that I love. I loved the dual POV chapters and chemistry between Mallory and Aiden. Alos loved Gabriella as a side character.

Thank you Netgalley and Dreamscape Media publishing for sending me this free audio in exchange for my honest review.

Townshipped is the first book that I have read (listened to) by this author and I really enjoyed it. It was read by dual narrators who did a very nice job of creating the voices for the main characters, Aiden and Mallory (aka Em). This sweet and clean story that featured amnesia was done in a way that was believable. That is a challenging thing to do in this time of social media, cell phones, and computers. But the events that unfolded set things up nicely to create a situation where Em really did not know who she was and did not have a way to immediately find out.

The connection between the two characters grew into friendship and into attraction in a natural way. The fact that they didn’t know Em’s circumstances, as well as family issues that arose for Aiden, added tension to their feelings. The emotions between the two main characters felt realistic, as did the confusion and doubt that reared its head all through the story and especially toward the last half of the book as Aiden and Em juggled many decisions and concerns. This was a fun romcom with heart that I enjoyed listening to.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

this one was even better than the first 2 and that usually never happens for me. I really loved the townie vibe and I couldn't wait to get to the good parts!

I don’t know if it was a popular movie/TV show theme for a while, but for some reason I have memories of there being a lot of amnesia related stories in the ‘90’s. Anyone else? I also feel like it was one of my biggest fears. Anyway, this cute romance starts with a recently single woman named Em who suffers from amnesia after getting in a car accident far from home. Aiden, a local farmer, finds her and takes her in. Aiden now has to deal with this unexpected guest and also go through some major life changes. This story has all the small town feels and a close proximity setup. It was a fun listen with a heartwarming message and I’m excited to read more of this series!

Really enjoyed this sweet romcom. So much happened. Not only was it a dual POV from both main characters, but I like that the focus remained on Aiden and Mallory. They were both great characters alone and wonderful as love interests. I took away a star only because at one point I thought Aiden's emotions were a little all over the place that even I was a little confused by why he was acting the way he was. Also, the small town farm as the backdrop made this just right!

Thank you NetGalley for the arc.

Amnesia, goats, and an amazingly funny romantic story! Absolutely loved the audiobook version of Townshipped! Savannah Scott is quickly becoming a favorite romcom author. I love the way she weaves stories around the residents of the fictional town of Bordeaux, Ohio and this story is my favorite so far.

When a young woman crashes her car near Aiden’s goat farm, he doesn’t expect to fall in love. But as he gets to know “M” he can’t help but enjoy the sweet, strong redhead. Before Mallory crashed her car, she was enjoying a honeymoon for one after calling off her wedding. Now with no memory of her life before, she’s drawn to the handsome farmer who rescued her. While trying to piece together her memory and recover from her injuries, she falls in love not only with Aiden, but his family and the whole town of Bordeaux. But, when she finally regains her memory, will she choose to stay?

Absolutely adored Aiden and Mallory! Aiden is hardworking, a softy at heart, and ruggedly handsome. I loved his chivalry too. Despite those hard to resist tempting late night kisses, he vows not to start anything with Mal until she regains her memories. Along with the romance, is the tragic story of Aiden’s cousin and his unexpected custody of her children. These sweet kids add another cute element to the story.

Not only is it touching and romantic, but it’s hilariously funny. The funeral scene had to be one of my favorites. The phone in the casket, bikers, and the pigeons had me laughing out loud.

The audiobook version is so well done! The narrators voice both male and female parts perfectly. There’s just the right amount of emotion and they really make the characters come to life.

Highly recommend! If you enjoy clean, funny romcoms that not only entertain but touch the heart, you’ll love this book! Although part of a series, it can definitely be read as a standalone. I received an advanced complimentary audiobook copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own and I was not required to provide a positive review. 4.5/5 stars!

This is the story of Mal, who’s on a solo road trip when she ends up having a car accident in middle of nowhere, Bordeaux, Ohio. Aidan, the reclusive, quiet farmer discovers Mal’s car and helps her make her way to his home so she can rest and recuperate. She has no memory of her past and her ID is nowhere to be found, so she finds herself relying on Aidan to help her orient herself to her new surroundings. These two quickly form a unique bond as they work together to help her remember her past and recover from her car accident. Mal begins to fall for Aidan’s caring nature, the way he protects those he loves most and the way he is so considerate of those he cares for. With twists and turns coming their way, the question will be how Mal is going to be able to stay with the man she’s starting to fall in love with if she belongs somewhere else.

This was a light and fun romance story. I really enjoyed continuing this series with an advanced audiobook recording from NetGalley. It was fun to enjoy the two narrators tell the dual POV story and bring this story to life. I’ve been eagerly anticipating Aidan’s story and I’m so glad I had a chance to check it out.

Many thanks to NetGalley for an advanced audiobook copy, all thoughts are my own.

Another cute, fluffy and romantic book from Savannah. I love the hints of one of the characters from the first book. I have heard of Elemao (however you spell her name because I've audiobooked all of the books) She always has a hidden appearance in each book and I can't wait for more from Savannah!

So. Darn. Cute!!! I was excited to read the third book in the Shipped series. The town of Bordeaux, Ohio (pronounced Bored-Ox) sets the stage for Trevor’s story. Trevor is super smart, handsome, and outdoorsy. He also rescues a woman outside of his house after she crashes during a snow squall. Swoon. “Em” suffers from amnesia, and she forgets that she just canceled her wedding! There are tons of family demands on her, so it is nice to just watch her calm down in this tiny little town. The accompanying cast of characters is so fun, and really bring an added layer to the story. Loved it!

Thank you to NetGalley, the publisher, and author for allowing me to listen to this audiobook for free for an honest review. This is my first time reading/listening to one of her books, and I absolutely loved this book! The author really brought the scene into detailed focused, and I could feel the emotions of the characters. I love how Aiden and M both danced around each other’s feelings, but you could tell they already loved each other! I really like how M shared her memories instead of keeping them hidden, and how Aiden was patient with her through all of it. A must read!

I was so pleasantly surprised by this book, it had all the feels of a true love romance and will have you cheering for the couple. It is the third book in the series but could be a strand alone book.

M broke off her engagement days before her wedding, which leads her to go on her honeymoon by herself and then she gets into a car accident by a farm in the middle of Ohio. Luckily enough a single goat farmer saves her and helps her recover from amnesia. Fate brought them together but will it be true love?

"A woman alone with her thoughts can be a dangerous place."

Yes, I need a tee shirt with this quote! Townshipped, book 3 in The Getting Shipped series, by romance author Savannah Scott, had me smiling and rooting for this sweet couple from the start.

On her honeymoon alone after breaking up with her fiance, Mallory crashes her car right into the arms of very handsome goat farmer Aiden. Suffering from amnesia, she and Aiden grow close. After all, how can you not fall for a man who finds joy in watching Legally Blonde. But what happens when she remembers it all?

Once again, Amy McFadden and Will Damron are delicious as a new couple in Bordeaux falling in love. Past couples and future couples in the series round out this fun cast. Can't wait to hear book 4 Censorshipped.
