    After years apart, Mick and Megan O’Brien are finally ready to make it official… again. Most of their grown children couldn’t be happier about their rekindled love and impending marriage this holiday season. Only Connor is a holdout. Driven to become a divorce attorney after what he views as his mother’s abandonment of their family, Connor’s not about to give his blessing to this reunion romance. The last thing Megan wants to do is hurt her family again. After all, is she really sure she and Mick can make it this time around?

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Chesapeake Shores Christmas to be better than the print version?

    I've really been enjoying Sherryl Woods Chesapeake Shore stores and was excited that Mick and Megan were finally going to remarry. I just didn't like the continued lack of trust especialy on Megan's part. If she trusted Mick enough to say yes to his proposal then Connor should not have been allowed to control the situation by his self-centered attitude.


    What about Christina Traister’s performance did you like?

    She's been doing the series and the consistancy of her doing the characters really adds to the interpretation.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I really liked how Mick went all out to show Megan he had changed. Already having the Inn reserved for thier wedding was very touching.

    Recently widowed, grieving Los Angeles midwife/nurse Melinda Monroe answers a small upstate town's ad for help. Nestled amongst California's giant redwoods, quaint Virgin River is host to many quirky characters - including bar owner Jack Sheridan, who may be just the man to make Melinda smile again.

    Emotionally wounded single mom Sarah Price has come home to Serenity, South Carolina, for a fresh start. With support from her two best friends – the newest generation of Sweet Magnolias – she can face any crisis. But sometimes a woman needs more than even treasured friends can provide. Sexy Travis McDonald may be exactly what Sarah’s battered self-confidence requires.

    What did you like best about Sweet Tea at Sunrise? What did you like least?

    I really liked how Sherryl Woods has brought in the 2nd set of Sweet Magnolias and what is taking place in their lives. Finding out how Sarah and Trevor finally made a life even though there were hurdles. Working through forgiveness etc.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Trevor because he wasn't giving up on Sarah.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mary Robinette Kowal?

    Someone who could handle the male voices without making them all sound slow and fake, and I did like how she made Rory Sue's voice work.


    Do you think Sweet Tea at Sunrise needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I think there is a follow-up book and that should complete the series.


    Any additional comments?

    I sometimes like a male voice when the man seems to be the main character.

  • Steve Martin: The Magic Years

    This is no ordinary celebrity biography pieced together by an outsider. Steve Martin and author Morris Walker had a close relationship growing up. They were class clowns together, charming the girls and the teachers with their wit, and eventually going on the road as comedians. This personal account will introduce you to the Steve Martin you've never seen before.

    Overall

    I like Steve Martin, didn't see him until later in his career. I thought this book would give me a glimpse into his background. Instead it gave me a glimpse into Morris Walker. Morris kssps stating in the book how he isn't really interested in the wealth that Steve has earned but all he talks about is the amount of money Steve Martin makes.. sounds like sour grapes to me.

    I think that Morris could have written a book about his young life with Steve and leave it at that, or maybe just his life and that he happened to have Steve as a childhood friend. Or even co-wrote one with Steve Martin.

    After listening to this book, I wanted to know more about Morris and his wife, how they met, what they did as far as performers. That would have been much more interesting. It's obvious he loves her very much.

    I guess I just don't know the reason Morris wrote this book, but I will encourage anyone to read Steve Martin's book: 'Born Standing Up'. I have really enjoyed Steve's other books here on Audible too.
