    What did you love best about Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour?

    The travel details - the foods, histories and creation of the landscapes. And the Characters: Amy - Broken, Roger - Feeling, and the supporting cast of Bronwyn, Walcott and Lucien that all gave extra heart to this story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bronwyn, Walcott and Lucien - love them all and they are all important to this story.


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

    The story is is the perfect rite of passage book.


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

    The scene when Amy goes back to the golf course and annouces that her father is dead.


    Any additional comments?

    I like the book because I can really see the personality of each character and the was the story unfolds. I didn't want it to end, and wanted to see when else this story would take me, but it had to and it ended well.

    Eldest brother Marcus Armstrong considers the estrogen influx an irritating distraction. He's running a town, not a dating service! Reporter Alicia Randall thinks the Armstrong brothers are running a scam and she intends to prove it-even if it means seducing oh-so-sexy Marcus in the process. Sizzling sex and a hot story? Win-win! At least it is, until she falls for the guy. Will love trump betrayal when the truth comes out?

    Would you listen to Baby, Don't Go again? Why?

    Yes - it was very entertaining and the characters were engaging. The story doesn't go over the top but keeps flowing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Baby, Don't Go?

    The Church


    Which character – as performed by Cassandra Campbell – was your favorite?

    Alicia - Ms. Campbell is an excellent voice talent. I like her female characters better than her male ones - but she did an awesome job with them all


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The boy's mermaid


    Any additional comments?

    I read reviews of this book and thought that this one would not be as good as the other two. I like the style of this book and read it these types of book to take away from the heaviness of others. However I backed away from this one because I read that the main character (Marcus) was hard-headed and un-moving. Not the case at all. He has the most loving and demined spirit out of the 3 brothers and I am upset with myself with taking so long to read this one. It is an enjoyable read and I am happy that I took time to listen.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    What made the experience of listening to The Fault in Our Stars the most enjoyable?

    The story was so strong that you felt the characters feelings.


    What other book might you compare The Fault in Our Stars to and why?

    Amy and Roger's Epic Detour and Along for the Ride.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Rudd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I love Kate Rudd, she is has a way pulling you into the story either Romance or Teens or any other


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Not happily ever after - just life and death in the "Heart of Jesus."


    Any additional comments?

    Love the supporting cast - the parents and friends and even the mean author, but they all matter to the story - I know this book has been out for a while and have put it pretty low on my book list because I heard it was depressing, but it was funny with a serious subject - beautiful story

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

    I would definitely recommend it - It keeps moving and you fall in love with the players - old and new.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hanna as Ziggy (No filter on this girl) and of course Will (under cover romantic).


    Have you listened to any of Grace Grant and Sebastian York ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to all the Beautiful books so I familiar with both Ms. Grant and Mr. York vocal talents. I have a book crush on Sebastian York - I like his deep grainy voice on this series and another I am reading. I have listened to Grace Grant from the very first Beautiful book and she does all the characters perfectly - love them both.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Brutal and Honest - can make anyone laugh out loud.


    Any additional comments?

    I like that Ms. Lauren doesn't just hand us a book full of sex scenes and ask us to enjoy it. She gives us a good story and pepper it with HOT scenes that has that reader intrigued. I am looking forward to Beautiful Beginning.

    Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas's epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare's greatest plays. 'Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearsome Stormtroopers, signifying...pretty much everything.

    If you could sum up William Shakespeare's Star Wars in three words, what would they be?

    This was so great to listen to - but beware - laughter will happen even will driving


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way it was put together - the characters - the Shakespeare references


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    R2D2 was the best - that cast was incredible


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed for the whole first part of the book - and the second part - it was great - and I don't always like music or sound effects in other books, it was perfect in this book - especially enjoyed R2D2


    Any additional comments?

    I am giving this as a gift to 3 people and I have a couple of folks wanting to get it for themselves. Wish I could give it more than 5 stars

    Sophie Dempsey wants to help her sister film a video and then get out of Temptation, Ohio. Mayor Phin Tucker wants to play pool with the police chief and keep things peaceful. But when Sophie and Phin meet, they both get more than they want. Gossip, blackmail, adultery, murder, vehicular abuse of a corpse, and slightly perverse but excellent sex: all hell breaks loose in Temptation.

    I have not, but she did an amazing job on this story - bravo!

    I loved the pool scene - he deserved to get his ass handed to him (but I still Love him) - the dressing up in the bar scene and the first time in a bed scene - all so f-ing funny.


    Any additional comments?

    Beware - if you are drinking anything while reading this book, you might spit it all over at certain parts of this book from laughing too hard. - Don't say I didn't warn you.

    What did you love best about Good in Bed?

    I liked that she was fine in her own skin - that she was a real sounding person with the unreal happening around her.


    What other book might you compare Good in Bed to and why?

    Something Borrowed - because it was on the same vein as Good in Bed (to me)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene in the bathroom - when she met Maxi Rider for the first time.
    and
    When she met her celebrity crush and he lends her the car
    and
    The ladies at the weight-loss program were the funniest
    and
    when she tells the man that she is lost and he tells her "Get Found."


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I wanted to punch Bruce (whinny brat) - I wanted to punch his girlfriend and I got really mad that he NEVER went to see his daughter - prat.

    I loved that she had a great support system - Her Mom, her spetmom, brother and sister, Bestfriends Samantha and Maxie and of course Peter. So many laughing parts with them.

    But he father is where I really had a reaction - Bruce was a brat, but her father was a heel. "Forget that family after I screwed up those kids, let me go get some more." Jackass.


    Any additional comments?

    I was a good read and it was great for her first book. Going to read Certain Girls soon.

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Witness in three words, what would they be?

    They're are spoilers:

    The story was visioned very well. It was entertaining in the beginning; the explanation of her life, of her rebellious day and the crime that she witnessed. The story of Abigail life in the small town was explained well. Brooks was a little stalker like, but he was a good hero.

    A few doors were opened that didn't need to be and could have been replaced or omitted; him bagging the Coke can after Abigail drank from it and the girlfriend that he use to have sex with. All of Brooks side stories were relevant.

    Now, for her: I liked Abigail, especially in the beginning as Liz. She was very naive and likeable. But then her character did not wane. In the beginning of the story, she was not a part of the world or the social structure of the world, yet she was more believable as a teen holding back her feelings. I would have liked her to have grown up to be a little "jaded". As Abigail, she was still that teenage girl we originally met. But she was a bad-ass with a gun. I wish she had better closure with her mother.

    I like the hippiness of the town and the description (not over described). His Mom was great with the painting and the dogs stories, but his mom's accent was not a real Maryland sounding accent, more New England. But the rest of the voices were great.

    I did expect that that "in hiding" aspect of the story to be more defined (which comes later in the book). It took so long for Brooks to find out what was going on with Abigail and for them to come up with a plan. If they were given more time, I believe that they could have up with an even better plan of attack. I liked the side stories and how they "kinda" come together (a little work on that). The whole Blake story line was a good distraction for Abigail, but she was easily distracted by EVERYTHING.

    The ending was not bad and you were really rooting for the heroes. Most of the ending of the story was fantastic, and I don't believe that a book have to be 100% believable, but I wanted more on Ilya. What he was doing to to find her, his warped feelings for her and how he felt when she took him down.

    Great introduction book to Nora Roberts.


    What other book might you compare The Witness to and why?

    Maybe the Bones TV Show.


    Which character – as performed by Julia Whelan – was your favorite?

    Abigail and Brooks - but I also love Bert.


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

    When she hugs John while Terry is crying, when he tells her to run and when she tells Brook the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish they didn't bring up her donor father (it wasn't necessary). A little more background on the Ilay, that could have been used filler for the story. With all the issues with this story, it was entertaining and a good read. More of a romance novel that a mystery. Enjoy.
