    Callie Perry is a successful family photographer living in upstate New York. She adores her two daughters, has great friends, and actually doesn't mind that her workaholic husband gets home at 9 p.m. every night-that is, when he's not traveling six months out of the year. Callie's younger sister, Steff, on the other hand, has never grown up. She's a free spirit, living in downtown Manhattan and bouncing between jobs and boyfriends. Lately, she's been working as a vegan chef, even though she can't cook.

    Overall

    I really enjoyed this read (or should I say listen). This story was nothing of what I expected but ended up being greater than my expectations. I have read other Jane Green books before and always enjoying them. She has a way of painting a vivid picture with words, always making me fall in love with each character no matter the circumstance. This book brought me to tears countless times, but if you are reading this don’t let that stop you because by the end you are smiling and filled with happiness. I just wish there was a cookbook with all of the amazing recipes attached at the back. Oh well I will just have to listen again and write them down.

    The amusing little inborn device known as the biological clock tolls for three women; two of them heed its compelling tones, while the third tries to ignore them.

    Story

    After reading most of Jane Green's books I have noticed a distinct difference between her older book and her newer ones. I can't put my finger on it to describe it. I suppose her writing has simply matured. I enjoyed this book, the story line was good, the performance good too. If you like her other books you will like this one too.

    When Alice's wealthy (and much coveted) teenage crush, Joe, asks her to marry him, she is prepared to trade in her dream of a cottage filled with children, animals, and home-cooked meals for what he has in mind for her: stilettos, blond highlights, and a diet. She tells herself that she's happy to sacrifice for love, especially when every woman in London would like to be in her shoes.

    In this juicy first novel by Elin Hilderbrand, a series of personal dramas are played out during one summer at a Nantucket Beach Club. It's about the love of summer, summer love, and the special feelings we all have for that special summer place - in this case, a hotel and an island. An engrossing, sexy novel that will sweep you away to the beach any time of the year.

    This isn't my favorite of Erin Hildebrand books. My first read of hers was The Island which I adored. Nonetheless this was still a good book. I liked the story line and the characters. I guess there was just a little something missing to it for me.

    Story

    Giffin does a great job of writing real life events that readers can relate to. This book was a bit different than her others because it was a story based on only two characters lives. Typically her stories involve multiple characters and their life stories intertwined with the main characters but this one was really focused on just the two women.

    Cynthia Nixon always does a wonderful job with narration!

    Claudia and Ben are the perfect couple. Ever since their first date, when they both admitted they had no desire for children, their courtship and marriage seemed destined. Their relationship is about freedom, possibility, and exploration. About being together because they want to be together. Not because children are caging them with 18 years of obligation. But then Ben changes his mind: He does want children, after all.

    Story

    Such a good story for women of this age. I think women of all backgrounds can take something from this book. Whether you are a women in question of having a baby, an individual with issues in your relationship, or a woman who doesn't understand other women who don't want children, or if you are just in the mood for a good story to listen to. In the end its a tale of true love conquering all, and ultimately a strong case for compromise. I learned something for my own life, a story quite parallel to this one. The performance was great too, I love the way Cynthia Nixon brought the story to life.

    The final book shocked me with the progression of Ana and Christians relationship. I enjoyed the whole series. My recommendations would be to the performer to work on her male voices. To the author, try to expand on the vocabulary.

The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Story

    There are a lot of mixed reviews about this book that I read before purchasing, I decided to just go into it with an open mind and ended up purchasing the whole series. I listen to a great deal of audio books so my opinion comes from experience. This book is not written from your typical "author" which is why I believe a lot of people are criticizing it heavily. However, I thought for having no writing experience that this was an interesting story. The dialogue was somewhat repetitive (especially the emails) but still an intriguing story. I think it will appeal to people who are not familiar with erotic novels. Aside from being erotic though I the story line was intriguing between Ana and Christian. Especially Christians past, I wish the author's next book would be a continuation of Christian's point of view from the final book.

    In his simplest guided meditation album to date, Deepak intimately navigates the listener through a series of Sutras, or “Great Sayings,” translated from the wisdom tradition of the Vedanta, a classical system of Indian philosophy. Deepak shares that “The power of these Sutras activate self-repair mechanisms because they’re revealing to us our true identity. Self-repair is healing.”

    This guided meditation is very good for me as a beginner. I have felt calmer since I began listening. I like what Deepak says, "you may not understand it in the beginning but you are seeding your consciousness." Just give it a chance and you will see results.
