Hildy Good is a character that will stay with me for a long time. I adored Mary Beth Hurt’s performance. The voice she gave to Hildy was perfect. So glad I decided to listen to this book.
I thought The Hurricane Sisters quite different in tone compared to The Last Original Wife but I still liked it. Some eccentricities aside the Waters family is not that different from mine. They accept and protect their own but sometimes (and this is where they differ from mine) they aren't so nice to each other. Underneath it all, they love each other and will defend them to the end. At the forefront of the novel are the rather naive Ashley, her long-suffering mother Liz, and the matriarch Maisy who doesn't tiptoe around anyone. Family secrets figure into the plot - rest assured all will be dealt with by the last page. The Hurricane Sisters is just the second book by Dorothea Benton Frank that I've read. I look forward to catching up with her backlist.
As in The Last Original Wife, Robin Miles' narration was so enjoyable. Loved her performance.
An intro to The Brothers Sinister series, The Governess Affair has me curious about the upcoming books. I enjoyed the characters in this story, the repartee between Serena and Hugo, and the sense that upcoming books will be enjoyable. I'm a fan of Courtney Milan so I know The Brothers Sinister will be a fun series.
I've listened to many of Rosalyn Landor's audiobook performances and think she does a wonderful job with historical romances.
Sorry that this is the final book in the Valentine series. Trigiani's story wraps things up (to a point) and left me hoping that someday another book would join the series. I'm going to miss these characters!
Cassandra Campbell's narration is wonderful - glad I decided to listen. Just a heads up: have some tissues nearby.
The Best Man was funny, tender, romantic and I loved it. Typical Kristan Higgins. Once again, proof of why her books are an auto-buy for me! Amy Rubinate was a wonderful narrator for Higgins' story.
Wonderful performances added to my enjoyment of this epistolary novel. (I followed along with the print version.) I liked the era (WWI-WWII years), the characters and the story. Highly recommended to fans of epistolary novels.
Overall rating: 4.5 stars

Susan Bennett's performance was enjoyable.
Journey to forgiveness.
Common themes shared by people of a certain age - as a reader, I appreciated that.
The last scene.
I'm so glad I took a chance on an author I'd never read before. I really liked Evanick's characters and setting. I hope Audible will make the rest of the series available to us! Recommended to fans of Contemporary Romance.
Johanna Parker did a wonderful job with the narration. Loved her performance!
