    48-year-old Nantucketer Dabney Kimball Beech has always had a gift for matchmaking. Some call her ability mystical, while others - like her husband, celebrated economist John Boxmiller Beech, and her daughter, Agnes, who is clearly engaged to the wrong man - call it meddlesome, but there's no arguing with her results: With 42 happy couples to her credit and all of them still together, Dabney has never been wrong about romance.

    What would have made The Matchmaker better?

    The story was simply dumb and the writing was very poor! The continual "he said and she said" over and over.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Elin Hilderbrand again?

    Maybe?


    Did Erin Bennett do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Considering how boring the characters were the narrator did the best she could do with them.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Huge disappointment!!

    Born in the slums of Brooklyn, in the first year of the 20th century, Willie Sutton came of age at a time when banks were out of control. If they weren’t taking brazen risks, they were shamelessly seeking bailouts. Trapped in a cycle of bank panics, depressions and soaring unemployment, Sutton saw only one way out. So began the career of America’s most successful bank robber. Sutton became so good at breaking into banks, and such a master at breaking out of prisons, police called him one of the most dangerous men.

    The day Cannie Shapiro, a savvy, intelligent, plus-sized pop culture reporter, opens up a national women's magazine to find out that her ex-boyfriend has been chronicling their ex-sex life is the day her life changes forever. Good in Bed celebrates the courage of the human spirit and introduces you to a heroine you'll never forget.

    Any additional comments?

    For the first time ever, I was completely mislead by the reviews of this book. It seemed that most people liked this book. I found it very depressing and would not recommend it to anyone! The narration, however, was very good!
