    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    Story

    Just a funny book. The ending is a bit too sweet but it is suppoed to be a light hearted book. The dialogue is fabulous- any scene with the main character's brother is funny. I thought the narrator was great. Just listen to the preview for a sample.

    Acclaimed author Susanna Kearsley's previous works have won the RT Book Reviews Reviewers Choice Award, and finaled for both the UK Romantic Novel of the Year and the RITA awards.

    Eva Ward is a modern woman thrown back three centuries to 1715 - only to find that might be exactly where she belongs. There, she finds true love with Daniel Butler, but the discord surrounding Hanoverian King George plunges the lovers into a world of intrigue, treason, and romance.

    Story

    I really wanted to like this book but I just didn't care for the characters or the story. The story just kept repeating itself without really going anywhere. The story has time travel so the suspension of reality has to play a part but it was how the characters reacted to the time travel that rang untrue. I regret that I used a credit on it. I didn't even finish it even though there is only 1 hour left, I just don't really care what happens.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The best book club you’ve never heard of – but will be eager to join, courtesy of a full cast of true characters. January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she's never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb....

    Story

    I originally read this book and recommended it to almost everyone I knew. I bought the audible version because it was on sale at one time and I wanted to spend time with the characters again. This book sparked an interest in the channel islands during WWII. The story is written in all letters. The audible version states who is writing to whom before the letter is read which makes it easy to follow. If you like books that are character driven then download this one.

    Nicholas Flamel was born in Paris on September 28, 1330. Nearly 700 years later, he is acknowledged as the greatest alchemist of his day. It is said that he discovered the secret of eternal life. The records show that he died in 1418. But his tomb is empty. The legend: Nicholas Flamel lives, but only because he has been making the elixir of life for centuries. And Sophie and Josh Newman are about to find themselves in the middle of the greatest legend of all time.

    Allison says: "High Fantasty in a modern world setting"

    Overall

    Wonderfully written. The combination of historical and mythical features is entertaining. Highly recommend Percy Jackson Fans looking for a new series.
