The title intrigued me so I bought the book! I really did not know what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised! There were a lot of facts presented that were previously unknown to me. The alert Levels at the end of each "conspiracy theory" story was quite entertaining and spot on as far as believability. Take a chance on this one!
I love the Miss Julia books and had hopes for this one too. It was very disappointing! The story was a departure from the usual funny stories and likeable characters I am used too . The story was tacky, there,were too many sexual references and crude language . I HATED the descriptions of the party and the unfunny behavior of the women after too much drink. I hope Ms Ross returns to her original template for Miss Julia and her friends in her next book.
Great read! Daniel Silva does such a great job with character development and a completely up to date plot that it could have jumped off the front page of the New York Times.
Gabriel Alon is my favorite Hero! George Guidall is the Best! His narration makes you fell like you are right there and know every character. His diction is perfect. I hated for it to end. Eagerly Looking forward to my next Silva novel.
Not a winner! I did not like this book.It was too grim and had too many descriptions of food
preparation which did NOT make my mouth water! Did not like either of the main women characters.Absolutely HATED the narration.Her male voices are cloying.
Got through chapter 10 but have no desire to finish it. Very Disappointed. Hope Winspear
sticks to Maisie Dobbs in the future.
This book is written somewhat in the style of the 44 Scotland Street Stories. It consists of 4 different stories told in chapters each going back and forth between four passengers riding together on a train.. Each story very different but with a central theme, Love. Likeable characters made the stories they shared very entertaining.
I have never read anything by this author and was pleasantly surprised. I liked her style and loved the setting in the Bluebird book store.I Have recommended it to my book group
as the selection for August.. I was fascinated by the friendship between the owner of the store and the famous Children's book author Margaret Wise Brown. Through letters we got to know them well.
Did not really like the voice of the narrator She sounded too old and did not do multiple voices well. I Wish she had a softer voice, she sounded too loud and raspy.
But I liked the story so I tried to get used to the voice.
Will look for another by Sarah Jio but hope to see another narrator.
I thoroughly enjoyed this excellent book. It is so refreshing to find a modern author that does not have to rely on bad language, violence, or steamy sex scenes to carry the story along.
The plot concerns a young woman who finds a box of old love letters when she is renovating an old house .Intrigued by the letters she sets out to find the author,a WW2 veteran living in a nearby town with his devoted handsome grandson .The book is full of likable characters and believable situations all set in a delightful beach town in Florida.
The narration was first rate and I will certainly look for more books by this author.
Thanks Audible for making this available.
Another riotously funny book by Ann B Ross. Even after so many books about Miss Julia I have not tired of the characters. I often wonder where she gets the unusual plots.
The narrator, Cynthia Darlow is a master of all the characters voices.Her voice for Lillian and grand daughter Leticia make you feel like you are right there in the kitchen with them.
Eagerly awaiting next years installment.
I have read most of the books by Angela Hunt. Some are really good some just average.
This one is very good. If you like Christian fiction you will be pleased.
Loved the narrator! Cynthia Darlow is one of my favorites. Fans of the Miss Julia books will recognize her distinctive style of Narration. Give it a try.
Hoped for a good listen as the synopsis sounded good. Listened for @1 1/2 hours and grew bored . Did not finish it .Unfamiliar with the author but would not get another by her.
I WAS a fan of Charles Martin but this book was a big disappointment. He has sacrificed his usual good writing with a lot of crude dialogue about body functions and salacious situations with Tyler, the Texas Ranger and "Sam" the woman he rescues. Too much detail about learning to shoot and "manhood" I guess this is a guys book.
I absolutely HATED the little girls "letters to God" her voice was cloying and the content stupid and unbelievable for a 10 year old who had gone through trauma.
The male narrator was the only good part of the book. Skip this one!
