    Since You're Leaving Anyway, Take Out the Trash is a rollicking Texas mystery debut jam-packed with humor - and a heaping helping of romance to boot! Down in Salt Lick, Texas, a lot of folks got sass, but beauty salon proprietor Debbie Sue Overstreet has a bit more than most.

    "Great Characters"
    Overall

    I really loved this story. The characters were all believable, and I was truly entertained.

    Mrs. Sookie Poole of Point Clear, Alabama, has just married off the last of her daughters and is looking forward to relaxing and perhaps traveling with her husband, Earle. The only thing left to contend with is her mother, the formidable Lenore Simmons Krackenberry. Lenore may be a lot of fun for other people, but is, for the most part, an overbearing presence for her daughter. Then one day, quite by accident, Sookie discovers a secret about her mother's past that knocks her for a loop and suddenly calls into question everything she ever thought she knew about herself, her family, and her future.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion to be better than the print version?

    I don't know, since I haven't read the print version. However, I purchased this after my mom recommended the print version to me. I think it was special to have the author read the story herself, though.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the humor.


    What does Fannie Flagg bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved hearing the author's own inflections and expressions. I feel it added a lot to the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, too long. It didn't take me very long to finish it, though.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story. My first Fannie Flagg, but definitely not my last.

    Pursued by her enemies, flattered and courted for her lands, a powerful, devious princess is desperate to reach refuge. Haunted by the shadow of the young assassin set upon her, Princess Melanthe knows that an ice cold countenance is her only protection. To succumb to love is the greatest danger of all. She can trust only one man amid the lies, the mysterious Green Knight - a true knight who never wavers once he gives his heart; a man who cannot comprehend deceit.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, but only if they enjoy the medieval genre. Lots of terms that might be confusing. I recommend downloading the glossary they discuss at the beginning of the book.


    What about Nicholas Boulton’s performance did you like?

    I really enjoyed this narrator. He did all the voices very well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I especially enjoyed the thread regarding the falcon and falconry in general. Very interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was fast-paced, and I was surprised that it was over as soon as it was, considering the over-all length. I'll definitely be getting the sequel.

    When a royal summons from her brother arrives, Emma knows it's time to embrace her duties as the princess of a small European kingdom and marry the man her brother has chosen for her, a stranger she has never met. Instead, she does what any self-respecting princess would do - she runs away. All she wants is one week in London. One week to experience everything life has to offer, before she is locked away in a loveless marriage forever. Former naval captain Nick Gregory has inherited a title he never wanted.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. This was the dumbest "regency" romance I ever listened to. If the author wishes to write in this genre, she should study it more. The idea that a "princess" would be left unattended and visit the home of a single male is preposterous and totally unbelievable.


    What could Tracy Anne Warren have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Do more research in the genre.


    What about Justine Eyre’s performance did you like?

    The narration was adequate.


    Do you think The Princess and the Peer needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Definitely not.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a waste of my time and my credit.

He soon learns important lessons from unlikely sources. W.

    This is one of my favorite books from my nearly nine years as an audible member. I love Nick Brannigan. This story takes some hilarious turns and pulls you in. The narrator is great, and you'll love it. I highly recommend it.

    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    "Great Dog-Training Tips"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. I have read several of Nora Roberts' books, and liked most of them, so I was prepared to like this one. I believe it's one of her better ones. I liked the characters, and it stayed interesting to the end. At the end, I wanted to go out and buy a chocolate lab.

    It is the middle of the 20th century, and in a home economics program at a prominent university, real babies are being used to teach mothering skills to young women. For a young man raised in these unlikely circumstances, finding real love and learning to trust will prove to be the work of a lifetime. In this captivating novel, bestselling author Lisa Grunwald gives us the sweeping tale of an irresistible hero and the many women who love him.

    "Not worth the time"
    Overall

    I kept waiting for this book to get interesting, and it never did. The characters were mildly interesting at first, but there were too many of them, and the book never really went anywhere. I really didn't like the grown-up Henry, and actually had a hard time listening to the end, which is unusual for me. Not really worth the credits.

    I had this in my Wish List for quite awhile, and couldn't decide if I really wanted it. I'm glad I finally got it; it was really great. I loved all the characters, and the way they were presented. The story flowed in a logical way to an ending I hadn't figured on, and way too soon. I found myself wanting to really get to know these folks. I highly recommend this book.

But when materials to build their new home are delayed, Andrew grudgingly postpones the wedding. Soon a tragedy threatens their future and forces them to fully rely on God.

    Against a vivid backdrop of war and thrilling innovation, Danielle Steel breathes life into history, weaving an intensely human story that spans three decades, of two tremendously different people, who in spite of themselves, are irrevocably woven into the fabric of each other's lives. More Steel.

    I have enjoyed other books by this author, but I didn't even finish listening to this one. I waited for it to get better, but it never did. Don't waste a book credit on this.
