    When ex–Vegas showgirl and local business owner Bunny Reid starts an online dating service called Cupid’s Cat’s Meow, out-of-town visitors flock to her bowling alley for the speed dating and cat show events that she hosts to bring in extra cash. Bunny’s scheme sounds harmless enough, but school psychologist Skye Denison knows all too well that an influx of strangers in Scumble River always spells trouble….

    No will not try another

    I only listened a little over 12 minutes, I did not like it even that much to give even more of a chance then that. I very little give one stars, this is one that got it across the board from me.

  • The Fountainhead

    • UNABRIDGED (32 hrs and 1 min)

    One of the 20th century's most challenging novels of ideas, The Fountainhead champions the cause of individualism through the story of a gifted young architect who defies the tyranny of conventional public opinion. The struggle for personal integrity in a world that values conformity above creativity is powerfully illustrated through three characters: Howard Roarke, a genius; Gail Wynand, a newspaper mogul and self-made millionaire; and Dominique Francon, a devastating beauty.

    Vanessa “Michael” Munroe deals in information - expensive information - working for corporations, heads of state, private clients, and anyone else who can pay for her unique brand of expertise. Born to missionary parents in lawless central Africa, Munroe took up with an infamous gunrunner and his mercenary crew when she was just fourteen. As his protégé, she earned the respect of the jungle's most dangerous men, cultivating her own reputation for years until something sent her running. After almost a decade building a new life and lucrative career from her home base in Dallas, she's never looked back. Until now....

  • Southern Fried Divorce: A Woman Unleashes Her Hound and His Dog in the Big Easy

    This often sweet, occasionally angry, but mostly hilarious true story of one Southern woman's swim through the murky waters of marriage and divorce is a quirky gem. Judy Conner refers to her former husband simply as "That X," which is perfectly understandable considering some of the antics he pulled. Although the stories of her X are sometimes humiliating, they are always funny. And Conner makes one thing perfectly clear. She and her X shared a love - albeit a surreal one - that was completely true.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"

    What did you love best about The Help?

    The culture of the south and the women structure that intertwined across economic lines and heritages.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Help and why?

    I cant choose just one. They are all strong characters and making you want to glimpse even more into their lives and families.


    Any additional comments?

    Many that do southern dilect readings come across sometimes a little to strong. This was the right mix and those of us from the south have new wonderful southern strong women in liteature to uphold.
