    Story

    A lot of the paranormal stuff doesn't really make much sense to me but I still enjoy the charactors & can't wait to see how the series ends. This narrator is much better than the 1st book.

    John Grisham returns to Ford County, Mississippi, the setting of his immensely popular first novel, A Time to Kill. This wholly surprising collection of stories reminds us once again why Grisham is America's favorite storyteller.

    Story

    These are just stories & by 'just' I don't mean bad. I mean they are short stories & nothing deeper than that. They are good stories that I really enjoyed. However, John Grisham needs to still to writing the stories & leave the narrating to others. He is not an actor. Just about put me to sleep. He basically just reads--no inflection hardly--no distinctive differences in the characters voices. But I still love his writing.

    When Nell Channing arrives on charming Three Sisters Island, she believes that she's finally found refuge from her abusive husband - and from the terrifying life she fled so desperately eight months ago. Just as Nell starts to wonder if she'll ever be able to break free of her fear, she realizes that the island suffers from a terrible curse - one that can only be broken by the descendants of the Three Sisters, the witches who settled the island back in 1692.

    Story

    Read this book years ago, but really enjoyed listening to it this time. Some would say it's typical Nora Roberts following a basic pattern & they'd be right. But that's what I like about Nora. The paranormal storyline is something I don't believe in but this is fiction. I'm glad I read it again. Sandra Burr does a great job narrating.

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    At 45, Rosalind Harper is a woman whose experiences have made her strong enough to bend without breaking - and weather any storm.

    Story

    Great story and series but once again southern does not mean stupid. I will never understand why actors & narrators think everyone from the south is a hick & should sound like one. The character of Hayley is read in such a way you think she doesn't have a lick of sense when she's quite intelligent. However, that is my only complaint. Otherwise, the book is perfect.

    This is the first of a triology that is absolutely wonderful. I am constantly amazed at how Nora puts so much detail in to her books on so many different subject matters. This series the subject is gardening. Makes the books individual & interesting. Good narrator, too.

    Sculptor Clare Kimball has captured the attention of the New York art world. But big-city success cannot burn away the half-remembered nightmares that have plagued Clare since childhood.

    Must say I haven't finished this one yet & don't know that I will. The sacrifices/rapes/murders creep me out. I may finish it later but for now I'm on to Whiskey Beach. Narrator does a good job though.

    Nora's different back stories always interest me. This one is magic, the next I read was whiskey, & the most recent one I just finished was race horses. She does such a thorough job with the background details. Love it. Sandra Burr is excellent as usual.

    I really enjoyed this book. The story is interesting with all the details about fire. The Narrator does an excellent job with all the voices. I agree with one reviewer who said it took too long for the characters to make the connection as to who the villian was but still it was a good read.
