    Would you consider the audio edition of Another Piece of My Heart to be better than the print version?

    I would say so, although I haven't read the print version of this book. I love audio books because I can listen while I do things, I don't have to sit still. Also the characters really come to life when the story is read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Another Piece of My Heart?

    The most memorable was when Emily started speaking like an adult. She made the transition from a teenage mind set to an adult. I liked hearing the story from different characters point of views. Especially Emily's, it offered good insight to a typically teenage mind.


    Have you listened to any of Jane Green’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I love all of the Jane Green books. I have listened to four other audio books and read a few others. This story line was a bit different than her usual. I love the details, the visual she paints for the reader in her story's. This was more involved in the characters themselves rather than outside details. I enjoyed the story, the drama of the story compensated for the lack of details that are usually provided.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A story mother and daughter will both love.


    Any additional comments?

    I love your books Jane, keep writing please.

    Los Angeles is all about the sweet life: hot clubs, cute guys, designer... everything. Nineteen-year-old Jane Roberts can't wait to start living it up. She may be in L.A. for an internship, but Jane plans to play as hard as she works, and has enlisted her BFF Scarlett to join in the fun. When Jane and Scarlett are approached by a producer who wants them to be on his new series, a "reality version of Sex and the City," they can hardly believe their luck. Their own show? Yes, please!

    The story line would entertain a teenager, up to 21 years even. I remember watching the Hill's when I was first in college and it appealed to me. I bought the book because I had numbers 2 and 3 in my library and wanted to read the series again. Now I realize too much time has passed.

    Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

    Story

    I saw the reviews on this book and wanted to read it immediately. I read What Alice Forgot and Loved it. The narration made this book equally enjoyable to the story line (I say with audio it doesn't matter how good the book is, the narrator can ruin it). This book kept me on the edge of my seat, inspired me and warmed my heart. The characters are so vivid and easy to relate to. The story line sparked deep questions and ultimately had a good message.

    Grace Stanton’s life as a rising media star and beloved lifestyle blogger takes a surprising turn when she catches her husband cheating and torpedoes his pricey sports car straight into the family swimming pool. Grace suddenly finds herself locked out of her palatial home, checking account, and even the blog she has worked so hard to develop in her signature style. Moving in with her widowed mother, who owns and lives above a rundown beach bar called The Sandbox, is less than ideal. So is attending court-mandated weekly "divorce recovery" therapy sessions with three other women and one man for whom betrayal seems to be the only commonality. When their “divorce coach” starts to act suspiciously, they decide to start having their own Wednesday "Ladies' Night" sessions at The Sandbox, and the unanticipated bonds that develop lead the members of the group to try and find closure in ways they never imagined. Can Grace figure out a new way home and discover how strong she needs to be to get there?

    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.

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.
