    This memoir is laced with wonderful stories about the French character, particularly in the world of food, and the way of life that Julia Child embraced so wholeheartedly. Above all, she reveals the kind of spirit and determination, the sheer love of cooking, and the drive to share that with her fellow Americans that made her the extraordinary success she became.

    Sara says: "What a pleasure!"
    "I love Julia Child even more now!!"

    Where does My Life in France rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a wonderful experience. Julia Child makes me want to cook!! The way she tells her story is so descriptive that I now long to go to France and live like she did. Definetely worth a listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The ability of the listener to be transported to another time and place is wonderful


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

    The voice with the fabulous french accent, I would have pronounced most things incorrectly in my head.

    Lady Georgiana Rannoch has once again been called into service by Her Majesty the Queen. This time she's sent to Nice on a secret assignment that's nothing to sneeze at: recover the Queen's stolen snuff box. As much of an honor as it is to be trusted by Her Majesty, an even greater honor awaits Georgie in Nice - as Coco Chanel herself asks Georgie to model her latest fashion. But when a necklace belonging to the Queen is stolen on the catwalk, Georgie has to find two priceless items-and solve a murder. How's a girl to find any time to go to the casino?

    Lindsay says: "Lots of good fun"

    Story

    London, 1940: Winston Churchill has just been sworn in, war rages across the Channel, and the threat of a Blitz looms larger by the day. But none of this deters Maggie Hope. She graduated at the top of her college class and possesses all the skills of the finest minds in British intelligence, but her gender qualifies her only to be the newest typist at No. 10 Downing Street. Her indefatigable spirit and gifts for codebreaking, though, rival those of even the highest men in government, and Maggie finds that working for the prime minister affords her a level of clearance she could never have imagined....

    Katherine says: "Lovely"
    "Wonderful!!!"

    This book is fabulous I wouldn't want to compare it to anything. I can't wait for the next book, I love the different view of history.

    I loved Maggie Hope. This book made me root for her.

    Between intriguing new cases and troubling personal developments, Precious' hands are full. The four Miss Beauty and Integrity pageant finalists may have questionable moral fiber, and the brother of an important government worker has allegedly been poisoned. On top of all that, Precious' reliable fianci might be hiding something.
