    Daisy Minor is bored. Worse than that, she's boring. A plain, small-town librarian, she's got a wardrobe as sexy as a dictionary and hasn't been on a date in years. She's never even had a lukewarm love affair, let alone a hot one. So when she wakes up on her 34th birthday and wonders how it is that she still lives with her widowed mom and spinster aunt while her friends have all gotten married and started families, she decides it's time to get a life - and a sex life.

    Story

    I've enjoyed this book for YEARS and was excited to see it was on Audible unabridged. The story is still fabulous and the narrator does a really nice job as well. Totally enjoyable.

    Best-selling author Rachel Gibson is acclaimed for her quick-witted and endearing romances. True Love and Other Disasters begins as the Seattle Chinooks hockey team owner dies, bequeathing the team to his young widow, Faith. Faith is determined to be taken seriously as the owner, and she’s not going to let anyone—especially dreamy star player Ty Savage—get in her way.

    Story
    What did you love best about True Love and Other Disasters?

    The story is wonderful and heartwarming and is written in Rachel Gibson's usual style of humor and the reader/listener identifying with the character. Susan Bennett really brings the characters to life.


    What does Susan Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She adds life to the characters, gives them a "tangible" presence. Really good readers bring added dimension to the characters. Awesome.

    Still reeling from her mother's recent death, Karen Whitlaw is stunned when she receives a package containing a mysterious notebook from her estranged father, whom she has barely seen since his return from the Vietnam War decades ago. Then, a shocking phone call: Karen's father has been murdered on the gritty streets of New Orleans.

    Story

    I love this old story. I've been revisiting Linda Howard's old books and trying to get them on Audible. I've always enjoyed this story, but for some reason, I couldn't get "into" it as much as her others. I think it was the narrator, but I can't quite put my finger on it. She was fine, the book was enjoyable and I'll listen to it again no question. But I didn't race to finish it, I switched to another book in the middle and that rarely happens for me. Sorry I can't be more exact - it just wasn't the "fit" I was hoping for.

    Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best - but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an option---even if the task is impossible. Because this time, it's not a wayward vamp she has to track. It's an archangel gone bad.

    Story

    I love this story. Nalini Singh has created a wonderful cast of characters in an original storyline. However, I can't listen to it because the narrator's voice takes me out of the story. Her emphasis on certain words and the nasal quality of the tone keeps me from even being able to finish listening. I should have listened to the sample before I ever purchased. This may not matter to you, in which case, the storyline is well-worth it!
