    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    How does Molly Harper manage to keep the humor in each and every one of her books? Amazing! Love the humor, adore the characters, and the story line is super. And, hats off to Amanda Ronconi for an excellent narration of the story. Amanda always makes each character come to life with a different "voice." This truly adds to the story. Harper and Ronconi - what a team!

    Award-winning and best-selling author Beverly Jenkins delivers another satisfying and deeply emotional historical romance set during the Revolutionary War. Jenkins continues to win readers with her adventurous tales - where love and high stakes go hand in hand.

    This was a thoroughly enjoyable read. Not predictable. Strong characters and ensemble cast. While I am not necessarily a western reader, I loved this story and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good book. The narration was superb.

But after Mina falls for a young man and Darya is tempted by an American musician, will this mother and daughter's appreciation for each other survive?

    I always wondered, as I watch the TV news, what life is like for people in war torn countries. This story explained life in Iran, coming to America and finding the changing family dynamic. Each character’s personality shown in the story and I found I wished these characters were my real life American neighbors. The two love story lines, both different, were fresh and new in the field of romance novels. This is a wonderful story.

    The year is 1934. With the country in the stranglehold of drought and economic depression, Ella Barron runs her Texas boardinghouse with an efficiency that ensures her life will be kept in balance. Between chores of cooking and cleaning for her residents, she cares for her 10-year-old son, Solly, a sweet but challenging child whose misunderstood behavior finds Ella on the receiving end of pity, derision, and suspicion.

    This is what a love story is all about. Two people caring for each other’s welfare. The book is superbly crafted and a true page turner. From page one until the end there is a thread weaving its way through the story until the final page. The reader is compelled to find out what will happen next. I truly enjoyed this story. It is a heart warmer.

    Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare.... Four years ago, Jocelyn left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Scotland, burying her grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without attachments. Her solitary life is working well - until she moves into a new apartment on Dublin Street where she meets a man who shakes her carefully guarded world to its core.

    This is a good “nightstand” book to read an excerpt or two from to get you “in the mood”. As a book to read with a true compelling story line, no. I was half way through the book and still wondering what is this story about other than physical attraction. While I adored the ensemble case of characters, I found the main character, Joss, to be shallow and self-serving. The narrator was superb with all the different accents, but no narrator can rise above a truly poorly written book.

    It seems like an easy assignment for an assertive but sweet woman like Gracie Snow: track down her friend, Bobby Denton, a famous ex-jock, and bring him to Heaven (Texas, that is) to shoot a movie. How could he refuse a glamorous offer like that? Easy....

    Story

    I find it interesting that every single person in SEP???s books have their own distinct character and personality. I find this amazing as I read through the Chicago Stars series. Each person is distinctive. The reason I mention this is because for some unexplained reason I have a fondness for Bobby Tom Denton. Can???t explain it. Only know this character, over the other male characters in the series, stood out for me. I loved this book, as I have all of the Chicago Stars series, and would recommend it to anyone wanting an adorable love story full of fun, laughter and downright good entertainment.

    Dean Robillard is the Chicago Stars' hotshot quarterback. Not only does he have lightening reflexes on the field, he is also utterly gorgeous. First seen in the critically acclaimed Match Me If You Can, Dean is trying to recover (both mentally and physically) from a shoulder injury by taking a road trip. Along the way he meets Blue, a beautiful woman down on her luck, and as they spend more time together their attraction grows.

    Story

    There are several elements that change a story from good to excellent. 1) The reader loves and empathizes with the characters. 2) The story line is intriguing, and not predictable, thus causing the readier to want to find out what will happen next. And, if the book is an audible edition, the narration, which draws the reader deeper into the story. This book has it all and will definitely not disappoint!

    You are about to travel to Edgecombe St. Mary, a small village in the English countryside filled with rolling hills, thatched cottages, and a cast of characters both hilariously original and as familiar as the members of your own family. Among them is Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired), the unlikely hero of Helen Simonson's wondrous debut. Wry, courtly, opinionated, and completely endearing, Major Pettigrew is one of the most indelible characters in contemporary fiction.

    While the enchanting story between the Major and Mrs. Ali is the focal point of the story; I found the relationship between father and son to be of equal interest. I highly recommend this wonderful title to anyone wanting a pleasant, feel good story, with an excellent narration.

    We are excited to present our members with a gift that is truly unique: an original essay, available exclusively here at Audible, written and voiced by best-selling author – and fellow listener – Ann Patchett. This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage is a very real love story, and one that is much more about the journey than the destination.

    I downloaded this piece for two reasons. It was free. The title was of interest to me. I was surprised when what I anticipated the piece being about turned out to be something entirely different. Was it a love story? Yes, a realistic love. Was it a rule book on marriage? No, but I found myself jotting done quotes for future reference. I truly enjoyed this audible selection and am proud to have it in my library.

    Jonathan Safran Foer's best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated, wowed critics on its way to winning several literary prizes, including Book of the Year honors from the Los Angeles Times. It has been published in 24 countries and will soon be a major motion picture. Foer's talent continues to shine in this sometimes hilarious and always heartfelt follow-up.

    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!
