    Loreen Murphy hadn't meant to hire a male prostitute in Las Vegas. It was all just a big, stupid, expensive misunderstanding. Abbey Walsh never intended anyone to find out about the fact that she's being blackmailed. As a minister's wife, her sordid past was supposed to be a secret. Tiffany Vanderslice Dreyer never dreamed that she'd find herself up to her eyeballs in credit card debt from one mad moment of a shopping spree.

    In Tempting Fate by Jane Green, Gabby and Elliott have been happily married for 18 years. They have two teenaged daughters; they have built a life together. So why does 43-year-old Gabby feel like she has only three more minutes left of youth? Why do her friends so desperately try to hang on to their attractiveness? And why does she ever even look at the handsome guy - 10 years younger - at the other end of the bar one night? Gabby is the last person to have an affair - a physical one, at least.

    What did you love best about Tempting Fate?

    I liked the twists and turns to the story. It was a little predictable but the truthfulness and raw emotion presented made me forget that. I liked that while the characters made progress in their lives, the story did not end all wrapped up perfectly.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She didn't have enough difference in the characters voices. Also, she was voicing people from the US with a British accent, which was confusing since it was hard to tell the character voices apart in the first place.

    Thirty-three-year-old Shea Rigsby has spent her entire life in Walker, Texas - a small college town that lives and dies by football, a passion she unabashedly shares. Raised alongside her best friend, Lucy, the daughter of Walker’s legendary head coach, Clive Carr, Shea was too devoted to her hometown team to leave. Instead she stayed in Walker for college, even taking a job in the university athletic department after graduation, where she has remained for more than a decade.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I didn't like the story or the characters. The story was too slow to build- hours and hours passed before anything actually happened and it was predictable. The main character wasn't relatable at all and I didn't understand the motivation for her actions. She and her best friend Lucy said they were best friends- but I honestly couldn't tell why, other than they lived in the same town.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Emily Giffin again?

    I will probably try another , as I have liked the rest of her books.


    What character would you cut from The One & Only?

    Shea, Lucy, I really didn't like many of the characters

    Dune Road is the story of life in an exclusive beach town after the tourists have left for the summer and the eccentric (and moneyed) community sticks around. Our heroine is a single mom who works for a famous - and famously reclusive - novelist. When she stumbles on a secret that the great man has kept hidden for years, she knows that there are plenty of women in town who would love to get their hands on it - including some who fancy the writer for themselves.

    Would you try another book from Jane Green and/or Cassandra Campbell?

    Yes, I usually like Jane Green's work.


    What about Cassandra Campbell’s performance did you like?

    She did a good job of using different character voices.


    Any additional comments?

    This was not one of my favorites from Jane Green. Kit is hard to root for- she trusts the wrong people and for unknown reasons. The story was too predictable and tied up too quickly and nicely.

    Southern belle BeBe Loudermilk has lost all her worldly possessions, thanks to a brief but disastrous relationship with the gorgeous Reddy, an "investment counselor" who turns out to be a con man. All that's left is a ramshackle 1950s motel on Tybee Island, an eccentric beach town that calls itself a drinking village with a fishing problem.

    Would you try another book from Mary Kay Andrews and/or Isabel Keating?

    I love Mary Kay Andrews books. I have most of them from Audible and will definitely get more. I will just be more careful to make sure they are not this narrator and not abridged.


    Would you recommend Savannah Breeze to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. First of all, it is abridged which is my own fault I didn't look closely at the listing but none of my other audible books by Mary Kay Andrews were abridged. Secondly, the narrator was HORRIBLE, butchering the names of people and places.


    What didn’t you like about Isabel Keating’s performance?

    Horrible pronunciation of names and places, voices for characters were odd, very fake southern accent


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Savannah Breeze?

    It was abridged, I would say none


    Any additional comments?

    Very disappointing from a great author and usually good audible.
