It's the most important part of her life. Despite the beautiful, lavish weddings she organizes, Alecia is convinced that the idea of true love is a myth.

    I have to say, I kept waiting for something interesting to happen in this story. Boy meets girl and they have sex. Thats about all that really happened in this book. I generally like Kresten Proby books but this one was just plain luke warm and pretty boring.

    Psychologist Faith Corcoran is desperate to escape the stalker who's made her life a nightmare for the past year--desperate enough to run to the one place that has been her nightmare for far longer. Both boon and bane, her recent inheritance of her grandmother's old house in Cincinnati offers a sanctuary in which she can start her life anew but requires that she face dark memories that resonate to this day.

    Story

    Wow! This was by far one of the best murder mysteries I have ever read. At over 25 hrs. long I was afraid it would be filled with a lot of unnecessary information. It was perfect. I'm not a big fan of a great deal of detailed description of what horrendous things a serial killer would do to a victim. This book walked just the right balance of describing those things that would be necessary to the story and just gratuitous violence. Till the last few chapters it was anybody's guess as to who the bad guys were. Was it 1 person or more than 1? The romance between Faith and Gideon was a part of the story but not the main focus as is done in many books listed as suspense under the romance category. In those books there is, to me, a feeling that the plot line is there only to go from 1 romance/sex scene to another. Not so here. I also don't usually like books that always give the date and time prior to each main change in the story or new chapter. In this book it definitely helped to see how everything was happening over the course of a few days, but in the context of the previous 23 years prior to the current story. This is one hell of a great story. I couldn't quit listening. I've liked every Karen Rose book Ive read, but this is the absolute best of them all. This is well worth the credit!

    Story

    I'm sitting here with tears running down my face as I finish listening to The Nightingale. Each time I hear stories of the atrocities that were carried out during world war 1 by the German army against the Jewish people as well as anyone else who stood in their road toward world domination, I am always so ashamed of what humans can do to other humans. I also cannot understand how so many people could have blindly followed a madman to have done the things that were done. The Nightingale made the story of the holocaust have a face, with this particular family, and how it affected them and how they reacted to the cruelty, and then treated their fellow human beings. I think a lot of us feel that one person can't make a difference in evil such as went on during that war. This book shows how a small group of individuals made the difference in so many lives for generations that would not have existed without their sacrifice. This book is not lighthearted reading but it is a terrific read and one I highly recommend.

    Abby Davis isn't wearing a skimpy bikini or sipping umbrella drinks, not when she's busy chasing around four little ones. And Matt McKinney isn't looking for fun - he's a Navy SEAL, a grown man with a long list of missions and fallen brothers. Abby has brought her children to this beach to start over, to give them the enjoyable memories they deserve. Matt has been sidelined by a combat injury, and he is haunted by the loss of his best friend and the promise he made: to remain a SEAL - focused and dedicated.

    Story

    I just loved this story! Abby was such a loving, patient and kind mother especially considering the kind of childhood she had. Matthew was the kind of love we would all like to have. This book showed that a pregnant woman can be sexy and desirable. I loved the way Abby and Matt interacted with her children. The narrator did a super job of voicing the different children which showed each individual childs personality, showing their fears caused by their fathers lack of any kind of involvement in their lives. I really enjoyed Matts extended family. It shown through the story that a big part of the reason Matthew could take on a woman with 4+ children was because of how he was raised. This is a great book!

    When Bree Prescott arrives in the sleepy, lakeside town of Pelion, Maine, she hopes against hope that this is the place where she will finally find the peace she so desperately seeks. On her first day there, her life collides with Archer Hale, an isolated man who holds a secret agony of his own. A man no one else sees.

    Story

    I just loved this book! Everything about it was great. The story, the narrators,everything! The author used just the right amount of description of the characters that were principle to the story as well as the people who were part of the back story. There was a real story here, not just sex scenes held together with a little narration. The way the author built the relationship between Archer and Bree had just the right pace from the time they met and how they fell in love. I had a momentary scare there, thinking the author had written a horrible ending but phew!! It turned out good.

    Story

    The books in this series are like nothing I have ever read or ever expect to read again. I have re-read all the previous books several times just longing to go back to that feeling of being part of the lives of people who are so brave, smart and funny. People I wish I could know or be like. Does anyone really have a husband like Jamie or a wife like Claire? I listened to all the books in the series and I can't imagine getting as much out of them reading them as I did from listening to Davina Porter reading them. I knew by the voice which character it was. She brings so much to the story with her accents, intonations, expressions and all the things she does to put emotion into the words. I have looked high and low trying to find any other series that is even close to this one and the only one close is Sara Donati but it wasn't nearly as long. I finished the book this afternoon and I feel like a friend that I had gone years without seeing came to stay a few days and has now left. I feel lost. I guess I'll have to go back and start over with the first book and listen to them all again. I hear that Starz is going to do a series of Outlander this fall. I guess i'll have to get Starz. I will be holding my breath hoping that they do it justice and stay true to the books. Thank you so much Diana, for the hours and hours of pure pleasure as well as making history so interesting to me. You are such a talent. Please bring the next book to all your rabid fans as quickly as possible.

    Forever You, is the highly anticipated sequel to USA Today’s best seller Forever Black. Connor Black’s life consisted of his company and his use of multiple women. There was never going to be love, relationships, or a fairy-tale life. Emotionally dead and damaged after a personal tragedy, Connor Black vowed never to love or fall in love with a woman - until Ellery Lane walked into his life by accident and changed him forever. He starts experiencing feelings and emotions he never felt before and finds himself being drawn into her world.

    This book was ok but is in the group of books lately that seem to be following the same storyline of the Shades of Gray series of books. Even the personalities of the main characters r similar enough to make a reader get confused as to which book what happened in because you could insert a scene from one series into the others.

    I found this book such a big disappointment! I have been listening to this series from the beginning with the first book. I've loved thim all. My only complaint up till now had been the long time between each book. Each time the wait was worth it. Not this time. This book seemed to go off in so many directions with so many characters that I had to get a list of all the characters that have been in this or any of the other books to try to help me with the confusion. The book was advertised to be about Wrath and Beth and their desire to have a baby but it was a good half way thru the book before this topic was really delved into. There was just too much jumping around from couple to couple without really having a clear direction for any of them. Wouldn't recommend it for any lover of this series.

Not only has she lost her marriage, she fears losing Evan to the lingering awkwardness and humiliation that hangs between them. Evan has no intention of letting that happen. He's got plans...namely, an extra plane ticket to Hawaii now that his future wife is out of the picture. There's only one person he wants on the trip with him, the one who's always been there for him.
