    Best-selling author Rachel Gibson is acclaimed for her quick-witted and endearing romances. True Love and Other Disasters begins as the Seattle Chinooks hockey team owner dies, bequeathing the team to his young widow, Faith. Faith is determined to be taken seriously as the owner, and she’s not going to let anyone—especially dreamy star player Ty Savage—get in her way.

    This is my first time listening to a Rachel Gibson book. I loved it. Thought the narrater did a good job. I hope audible releases any more of Rachel's books that are available on audio, especially the rest of this series (Chinook's Hockey Team).

    Dashing and dangerous Andre Raveneau is the Revolutionary War's most reckless privateer captain when Devon Lindsay stows away aboard his ship after her Connecticut town has been burned by the British. Raveneau sardonically agrees to deliver her to her childhood sweetheart in Virginia but doesn't count on his own potent attraction to the enchanting, courageous Devon. Through high adventure, swashbuckling sea battles, and the colorful history of America's revolution, the couple battles the fiery passion that binds them together.

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

    I read this book when it was first published in 1979. It was definitely what we romance fans call a "keeper". I was very excited to see that it was on audible.com. Well worth a credit. I read it over the weekend. I enjoyed it just as much now as I did when I first read it. I would definitely recommend it to a friend. It is a classic example of the early historical romance novel and why the whole romance genre got started.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Devon Lindsey was my favorite character. She is in virtually every scene in the book. The book follows her journey from a 12 year old to a grown woman who falls in love during the time of the Revolutionary War.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably my favorite scene would be when the hero Andre Raveneau arranges for Devon to "marry" her childhood sweetheart.


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

    Yes, yes, yes. Emily Beresford did a wonderful job with all the characters and there are a lot of them.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to listen to the rest of Cynthia Wright's novels. I am very hopeful that audible will release all of her titles. More than just enjoying listening to the book it made me remember why I fell in love with the romance genre. The reason I never outgrew that love is that I am always looking for a book I will enjoy as much as this one.

    Autumn Haven's Las Vegas "to-do" list said to catch a show and play the slots—not wake up married to a sexy jerk like Sam LeClaire. The first moment she saw him eyeing her like a luscious piece of the dessert buffet, her usually responsible self told her to run. And she did—right into the wildest fantasy weekend of her life. But Monday morning jolted her back to reality, and before she could say "pass the coffee", Sam was gone.

    I loved this book. It is a great ending to the Chinooks Hockey Team Series. I also listened to TRUE LOVE AND OTHER DISASTERS. Now I would love to listen to the rest of the series, and any other books by Rachel Gibson. Please audible.com, get the rest of her books!

    Between avoiding the FBI and their moronic profiling computer, joining a dating service, mixing it up with street thugs, and parrying the advances of an uncouth PI, Lieutenant Jacqueline Daniels and her binge-eating partner Herb must catch a frightening maniac who calls himself "The Gingerbread Man" before he kills again...and Jack is next on his murder list.

    Overall

    I read the blurb that compared this to Stephanie Plum or Kinsey Milhone. I was excited to start listening to it. When the writer starting telling the story through the serial killer's view it made me sick. I had to stop listening. I was very dissappointed. I am sorry I wasted any money on this book. I can not listen to it and I would not recommend it to anyone. It is certainly not comparble to the Stephanie Plum series! I didn't want to give it any stars, but I had to give it one to submit my review.

    Georgie York, once the costar of America's favorite television sitcom, has been publicly abandoned by her famous husband, her film career has tanked, her father is driving her crazy, and her public image as a spunky heroine is taking a serious beating. What should a down-on-her-luck actress do?

    Story

    I loved this book, in fact I have listened to it many times since I downloaded it in January. I just read the other reviews and I was shocked to see how many people didn't like it. I have been a fan of SEP since I listened to her first recorded book IT HAD TO BE YOU. I have loved them all. I've listened to them all more than once, but WIDFL might be my favorite. I listened to it when I first purchased it and enjoyed it very much. I've left it on my i-pod, and take it to bed with me every night to listen to until I fall asleep. I loved the story, the characters Georgie and Bram, and the secondary characters. As far as SEP using the concept of the Brangelina/Aniston breakup, who cares? Writers do that sort of thing all the time. Did you ever watch Law & Order? Most of their stories are ripped from the headlines. Lastly the narrator...no one could ever replace Anna Fields/Kate Fleming. She was great. But I thought Julia Gibson did a very good job and I enjoyed her narration.
