    Callie Perry is a successful family photographer living in upstate New York. She adores her two daughters, has great friends, and actually doesn't mind that her workaholic husband gets home at 9 p.m. every night-that is, when he's not traveling six months out of the year. Callie's younger sister, Steff, on the other hand, has never grown up. She's a free spirit, living in downtown Manhattan and bouncing between jobs and boyfriends. Lately, she's been working as a vegan chef, even though she can't cook.

    This was a great book, but beware it's a tear jerkier.

    Blair Mallory lives the good life. She's pretty, confident, and the owner of a thriving upscale fitness center. But in the shadow of success, a troubled member of the club develops a strange fixation on her, imitating her style and dress. Matters take a darker turn when the look-alike is shot dead - and Blair witnesses the horror.

    Story

    It doesn't take very long to figure out the narrator's voice does not enhance the story. The pitch of her voice, at best, hurt my ears and it was almost impossible to get through the book. That being said, who chooses the narrator matching the voice with the characters in the story. The voice did not match Blair nor Blair's mother who was a past beauty queen. It's well known that a narrator can make or break the book unfortunately this is a prime example.

    Darcy Rhone thought she had it all figured out: the more beautiful the girl, the more charmed her life. Never mind substance. Never mind playing by the rules. Never mind karma.

    Pamela says: "Hated To Love"
    "Abridged version"
    Overall

    I rarely purchase abridged audio books as they usually seem choppy and I feel like I've missed something important. Something Blue clearly is the exception I actually enjoyed this abridged version more than the unabridged Something Borrowed.

    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!"
    "Must Read"
    Overall

    With many great new books each year one always stands out and for me it was this story enhanced by the narrators,whom I believe took it to the next level. Its a must listen too.
