    While Lady Angeline Dudley’s pedigree dictates that she must land a titled gentleman, the irrepressible beauty secretly longs for a simple, ordinary suitor. No wild rakes like the men of her family, just a kind heart and good nature. So when Edward Ailsbury, the new Earl of Heyward, rescues her with unmatched civility from the advances of a scoundrel, Angeline thinks that she has found her true love. Persuading the earl is another matter entirely. Edward has his future neatly mapped out. He hopes to wed his steadfast companion....

    After reading the other review, I was sceptical about getting this one, even though I have enjoyed other Balogh novels. Although not high literature, this recording was a pleasant enough surprise. I enjoyed the slightly flightly main character, who is somewhat more lighthearted than Balogh's other more serious heroines. It was worth using a credit.

    Just as Alix Madsen is finishing up architectural school, Adelaide Kingsley dies and wills her, for one year, the use of a charming 19th-century Nantucket house. The elderly woman's relationship to the Madsen family is a mystery to the spirited Alix - fresh from a romantic breakup - but for reasons of her own, Alix accepts the quirky bequest, in part because it gives her time to plan her best friend's storybook wedding.

    I think the performance really affected my appreciation of this book. There is something very annoying about the over-enunciation. I never felt a real connection to the main characters...they didn't seem particularly deep. The heroine is a little girl and the hero is annoyingly arrogant with no redeeming features. Sometimes I wish Jude would stop over-plotting and work on character development a little more. I miss her strong, independent, sassy female characters. I miss the humor.

    Seth Weinstein knew Tina was way out of his league in pretty much any way you could imagine, which is why it continued to astonish him that he was on the plane now for their destination wedding in Florida. The Groom Posse had already sprung an airport prank on him, and he'd survived it, and if that was the worst of it, everything should be okay. Smooth sailing from now on. Seth has absolutely no idea what he's about to get into.

    I loved this book. Dave is great at writing humor, but his character development is excellent as well. He is a master at bringing together a zany group of mismatched characters and events and mixing them into a goofy but fascinating storyline. I highly recommend if you need some upbeat comedy in your life.

    Madeline, Avery, and Nikki are strangers to each other, but they have one thing in common. They each wake up one morning to discover their life savings have vanished, along with their trusted financial manager - leaving them with nothing but co-ownership of a ramshackle beachfront house. Throwing their lots in together, they take on the challenge of restoring the historic property. But just as they begin to reinvent themselves and discover the power of friendship, secrets threaten to tear down their trust.

    I was surprised how much I enjoyed this selection. I liked how the relationships built between the characters while they were working on restoring the old house. The characters had depth and the storytelling was great. I also loved The Accidental Bestseller, and am eager to try some of the other books by this author.

    Ellis, Julia, and Dorie. Best friends since Catholic grade school, they now find themselves, in their mid-thirties, at the crossroads of life and love. Ellis, recently fired from a job she gave everything to, is rudderless and now beginning to question the choices she's made over the past decade of her life. Julia—whose caustic wit covers up her wounds—has a man who loves her and is offering her the world, but she can't hide from how deeply insecure she feels about her looks, her brains, her life.

    I love Mary Kay Andrews' books in general, and so was very excited to get going on this one. I was not disappointed. It is not my MOST favorite of hers (Savannah Blues and Savannah Breeze are my faves, also liked The Fixer Upper) but still very fun and had me laughing out loud in parts. It is a little Nancy Drewish but that is ok with me because as a kid I liked those too. If you want lighthearted fun reading with a little bit of suspense thrown in, I reccommend it.

    Sandra Dallas, best-selling author of The Persian Pickle Club, weaves an intricate and sophisticated tale in New Mercies. Nora Bondurant is divorced— unfathomable for a woman in 1933—and has inherited a house from a dead aunt she never even knew existed. But when she travels to Mississippi to claim her inheritance, she finds her eccentric neighbors would rather help her acquire a new husband than reveal the secrets surrounding her aunt’s death.

    Engaging southern fiction/ couldn't turn it off. I highly recommend this one. I will probably listen to it again at some point.

    Nothing comes between Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) and her bargains. Neither act of God nor budget crunch can shatter her dreams of wall-to-wall Prada. Every milestone in her well-shopped life (travel, long-lost sister, marriage, pregnancy) inspires new vistas to explore in the name of retail therapy. But now she faces her greatest little challenge yet: Becky’s two-year-old daughter, Minnie. Her favorite word is “MINE!”

    I am usually a fan, so was sad when this book took a downward spiral into a whiny mess.
