    Sarah Matamoros can’t complain. After immigrating from Mexico when she was nine years old, she’s content with the life she’s made for herself in sunny San Diego. She works hard at her mother’s housecleaning service by day and spends the evenings with her quirky eight-year-old daughter, Grace. From a very young age, Emory Owen had several concepts drilled into her head. Success is everything. Be the best. Fight your way to the top. Expectations were high in the Owen household and the world was watching. Born into a high society family, Emory never wanted for anything...at least anything money could buy.

    I read Heart Block shortly after it was released and loved it. I love the story, the humor, and the characters. It's a great romance novel.

    I was in the mood to experience the story again but needed my eyes for other things so I decided to purchase the audio book. Within the first 30 minutes I was certain I'd be returning it. I really didn't like the way the narrator handled the voices at all. As the book went on, however, she seemed to settle into the voices more and I was able to enjoy the story.

    If you're a fan of lesbian romance books, stick with this one and I don't think you'll be sorry.

    Gretchen Rubin had an epiphany one rainy afternoon in the unlikeliest of places: a city bus. "The days are long, but the years are short," she realized. "Time is passing, and I'm not focusing enough on the things that really matter." In that moment, she decided to dedicate a year to her happiness project.

    Like many other reviews have already pointed out, many of the things the author shares are things that I've heard before. But there were several items that I've been able to incorporate into my life so it was certainly not a wasted credit or wasted time.

    The death of legendary jazz trumpeter Joss Moody exposes an extraordinary secret. Unbeknown to all but his wife Millie, Joss was a woman living as a man. The discovery is most devastating for their adopted son, Colman, whose bewildered fury brings the press to the doorstep and sends his grieving mother to the sanctuary of a remote Scottish village.

    Would you listen to Trumpet again? Why?

    I would definitely listen again. I was easily able to connect with the main characters and the narrator did a fantastic job of bringing them to life.


    What about Cathleen McCarron’s performance did you like?

    There were times when her narration felt so real and so raw that it brought me to tears.


    Who was the most memorable character of Trumpet and why?

    I loved Millie. I truly felt like she was sharing her love, her grief, and her memories with me. My heart broke for her at times.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Would you listen to Gone Girl again? Why?

    I enjoy Gillian Flynn's dark, disturbing writing and the narrators did a fantastic job. Just fantastic.


    Have you listened to any of Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've never listened to anything with these narrators but they made the characters come alive for me. I think it added to the story quite a bit.


    Any additional comments?

    I did feel that the ending was too drawn out and that made it feel anticlimactic. However, I do love Flynn's way of writing unlikable characters.
