    In her compelling, beautifully crafted novel, New York Times best-selling author Marie Bostwick celebrates friendships old and new - and the unlikely threads that sometimes lead us exactly where we need to go. Christmas is fast approaching, and New Bern, Connecticut, is about to receive the gift of a new pastor, hired sight unseen to fill in while Reverend Tucker is on sabbatical. Meanwhile, Margot Matthews’ friend, Abigail, is trying to matchmake, even though Margot has all but given up on romance.

    We love all of Creston Mapes' books. This is a story about the life of a super rock star. Everett Lester is one messed up dude! It did get a bit confusing at times when the storyline would go from the past to the present and back again. But once we got into the story, it was not a problem. We highly recommend this book and are anxious to get started on the sequel ~ Full Tilt.

    Determined to tame her younger brother's rebellious streak, McKenna Ashford accepts her cousin's invitation to move west and to begin again. But she quickly discovers that life in Copper Creek, Colorado is far from what she expected. Shouldering burdens beyond her years, McKenna tries to be the parent Robert needs, instead of the older sister he resents. But an "untimely inheritance" challenges her resolve at every turn, while also offering a second chance to restore her trust--and perhaps even her heart.

    This book has romance, history, drama and mystery. It is our first book by Tamera Alexander but won't be our last. My husband and I normally listen to books while in the car. This one made it into the house ... we couldn't bear to stop listening! This is not just a book for the gals! We highly recommend the book, author and narrator.

    Charlotte owns a Birmingham bridal boutique. But with her own wedding day approaching, why can’t she find the perfect dress - or feel certain she should marry Tim? Then Charlotte purchases a vintage dress in a battered trunk at an estate sale. It looks brand-new, shimmering with pearls and satin, hand stitched and timeless in its design. But where did it come from? Who wore it? Charlotte’s search for the gown’s history begins as a distraction from her sputtering love life. But it takes on a life of its own as she comes to know the women who have worn the dress.

    This is my first Rachel Hauck book but definitely won't be my last. She tells a story that develops through the years and does an excellent job of going back and forth between the past and the present, without being confusing. There's plenty of twists and turns as well as romance and humor. This is the first time I have heard this narrator, and she was perfect for this book. I highly recommend this book, author and narrator!

    Cathy Cramer is a former lawyer and investigative blogger who writes commentary on local homicides. When she finds a threatening note warning her that she’s about to experience the same kind of judgment and speculation that she dishes out in her blog, Cathy writes it off as mischief…until her brother is caught in the middle of a murder investigation - the victim is his ex-wife. As her brother is tried and convicted in the media, and bloggers have a field day, Cathy wonders if she should have taken the threat more seriously.

    Terri's books are always good, and this is no exception. It starts off exciting and never slows down. As my husband and I were listening, we kept "offering suggestions and warnings" to the characters! This is a well-developed and thought-out plot. We highly recommend it and look forward to the next in the series.

    There's more than one kind of poison in this town. People are sick and dying. Rumors are swirling. Some claim chemicals leaking from a manufacturing plant are causing the cancer that’s crippling people on the poor side of Trenton City, Ohio. Yet nothing at the plant appears amiss. The problem remains a mystery until reporter Jack Crittendon’s longtime mechanic falls ill. As Jack investigates, he becomes engulfed in a smokescreen of lies, setups, greed, and scandal. The deeper he digs, the more toxic the corruption he uncovers.

    This is the 2nd book in the series, The Crittendon Files. If you like suspense, this is your series. There are no dull moments. Creston Mapes does a fabulous job of weaving the story, with twists and turns, and NO bad language! My husband and I love his writing and highly recommend this book, and the series, to everyone. Can't wait for the 3rd book!

    A man with a painful past. A child with a doubtful future. And a shared journey toward healing for both their hearts... It begins on the shaded town square in a sleepy Southern town. A spirited seven-year-old has a brisk business at her lemonade stand. But the little girl’s pretty yellow dress can’t quite hide the ugly scar on her chest. The stranger understands more about it than he wants to admit. And the beat-up bread truck careening around the corner with its radio blaring is about to change the trajectory of both their lives.

    I have now listened to 3 Charles Martin books, and this is his best of the 3 (The Mountain Between Us and Chasing Fireflies). He has a very unique writing style. This book has such a sweet storyline. And I couldn't help but fall in love with Charlie! The narrator is perfect for this book. I only give 5 stars for books that "blow me away". This could have gotten 4-1/2 stars but it ended a bit too soon and abruptly for me. I don't like to wonder what happened next. At least give an epilogue and summarize! I highly recommend it.

    As the youngest bureau chief and head of the Chicago Police Department's Major Case Squad, Boone Drake seems to have it all under control. Only those closest to him know that just a few short years ago, he lost everything that mattered to him in a tragic accident. After years of healing, his life is back on track. He recently married a wonderful woman named Haeley, adopted her son, bought a beautiful home, and rediscovered his faith. But Boone can't fight the feeling that something is about to go terribly wrong...again.

I highly recommend this entire series!

    Detective Boone Drake has just masterminded the most massive sting in Chicago history, bringing down the heads of not only the biggest street gangs in the city but also the old crime syndicate. The story is the biggest in decades, and the Chicago Police Department must protect the key witness at all costs. Despite top secret plans to transfer the witness ahead of his testimony before the grand jury, an attempt is made on his life.

    Boone Drake follows all the rules - as a cop, husband, and father. But when everything in his personal life is destroyed, he buries himself in guilt. His faith is rocked when he questions why God would allow this to happen to him. When it appears that it can't get any worse, he's accused of police brutality and suddenly his career is at risk. The possibility of being promoted to the Organized Crime Division is slipping from his hands. His life is spiraling out of control....

    I love books by Jerry Jenkins, and this is no exception. This whole series is great. The Brotherhood is definitely the saddest book I have ever listened to, but as only he can do, Jerry Jenkins brings you through it. Johnny Heller's narration is perfect for this Chicago setting. I highly recommend this book but also include a HUGH hankie alert!
