Instead of whistling while I work, I listen! I have my audible set up on my phone and comes through my blue tooth. I get so much done!!

    Fiona Carlisle didn't think anything could hurt as much as finding her fiancé in bed with her sister. But receiving an invitation to the happy couple's engagement party comes a close second. Determined to prove to her family and herself that she's moved on, Fiona has every intention of attending, looking red-hot and with an even hotter man on her arm. And there's only one man who will do: renowned photographer and reputed playboy Michael Houston.

    I love a good love scene in a story but I felt like the author was writing for a young male audience! I was not impressed! I didn't get past the beginning of the story.

    Fans of New York Times best seller The Nanny Diaries will rejoice in this wickedly hilarious novel, which acclaimed author Katharine Weber says is "much funnier and darker". Optioned for a major motion picture starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, The Ivy Chronicles skewers the twisted priorities of America's well-heeled elite.

    Story

    I did find myself laughing here and there. However, I read up on Karen Quinn and she said that she is Ivy Ames. If so, YIKES!! That being said this book is so unrealistic and far fetched that it gives me hope that she isn't really like this character at all. Ivy Ames lies and cheats any way she can, all the while getting 4 year old's and their parents to go along with outrageous fabricated backgrounds to look more attractive to private Kindergartens. The children are asked to deny their skin color, religion, their biological parents and the fact that one child's parents are gay. One supposed feel good moment was when she treated a clients 4 year old's to get her uni-brow and mustache shaped, waxed and plucked for over 2 hours by "the best of the best", in hopes of making her look cuter for her application. I think it was supposed to be an ugly duckling turned swan moment. The author forgot to mention any hiccups that might have happened...like the 4 year old may have cried? I did actually laughed out loud more than once. OTHERWISE, I totally stopped rooting for the mother who is struggling to support her kids because she was sooooooo shallow and ugly on the inside!!! I just started part 2 and can not finish this book! I don't like this Author so much that I will stay clear of Karen Quinn...unless it's free! To Karen Quinn, pluck one hair off of any 4 year old's upper lip and see if you don't find a reaction worth mentioning!!!!

    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    Cleary, North Carolina, is a sleepy mountain town, the kind of place where criminal activity is usually limited to parking violations. Not so, lately. Four women have disappeared from Cleary over the past two years. And there's always a blue ribbon left near the spot where each of the women was last seen. There are no bodies, no other clues, and no suspicion as to who their abductor might be. And now, another woman has disappeared without a trace.

    On a rainy Southern night, Jade Sperry endured a young woman's worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers. Robbed of her youthful ideals and at the center of scandal and tragedy, Jade ran as far and as fast as she could. But she never forgot the sleepy "company town" where every man, woman, and child was dependent on one wealthy family.

    I really enjoyed this tale from down south! The reader was great....he's not a female so he doesn't sound exactly female...if you can get over that it's all up hill from there! I loved this story and found myself doing extra chores and staying up later and listening....I only give 5 stars when I think it's totally deserved!!! I am a picky credit user and am not disappointed! Enjoy!

His friend is dead and buried. Years before, Eddie Gamboa had saved Court's life. Now, Eddie has been murdered by the notorious Mexican drug cartel he fought to take down. And Court soon finds himself drawn into a war he never wanted.

    Story

    I did enjoy this story! It was fast enough to keep me interested! This is purely a action story, with a whisper of a romantic touch that remains lukewarm. The story focus, Court Gentry is a character I like! He is more Jason Bourne then Rambo, so female listeners can relate more to the smart combat as opposed to animalistic instincts. Not a credit waste, especally if you are road tripping with any male of age...curse words fly but story like isn't overtly sexual...Enjoy...but if this is your first by this Author...The Grey Man is awesome!

    They call him the Devil.... He is the most notorious laird of Scotland: fierce, cold, deadly...and maybe even worse. Yet Evelinde has just agreed to wed him. Anything, she thinks, is better than her cruel stepmother. Though Evelinde should be wary of the rumors, she can't help but be drawn to this warrior...for the Devil of the Highlands inspires a heat within her that is unlike anything she has ever known.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Joseph says: "Good historical setting, but loose story."

    Amazingly wonderful story!!! Ken Follett is a master weaver of this tale of the love of a girl, love of a boy, love for a church, love for honor, and love for cruelty. In a time that I didn't know much about....it's interesting to hear how things were done in regards to clothes, food, religion, and love. I enjoyed this story so much...I can't believe I let it sit in my library for so long....I was saving it for a rainy day....I am so glad it finally rained!

    Breathless and painstakingly researched, this is a stunning debut mystery in which Sherlock Holmes unmasks Jack the Ripper. Lyndsay Faye perfectly captures all the color and syntax of Conan Doyle’s distinctive nineteenth-century London.
