    When Lady Tremaine petitions her husband for an end to their civil but loveless marriage, Lord Camden agrees on one scandalous condition - she must give him an heir within a year. Their early attempts to fulfill this delicate arrangement are marred by cold detachment, but soon sparks of passion and long-forgotten lust begin to be kindled anew.

    For someone who mostly reads the "heavy" stuff, this was an extremely nice break. Lots of fun and nicely nararated.

    Spanning 40 years, this is the story of turbulent Tom Wingo, his gifted and troubled twin sister Savannah, and their struggle to triumph over the dark and tragic legacy of the extraordinary family into which they were born.

    Ella says: "A "Prince" amongst novels"
    "So satisfying!"
    Overall

    What a great story! What a fantastic narrator! Well worth the credit. I cannot do the book justice by reviewing it, but just know the read is extremely satisfying on many levels, and at the end of it all I had the experience of not "knowing" where I was--it had transported me to a time and place so thoroughly. And the characters were so real that I could easily envision them all.

    Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire mysteries are critically acclaimed. Longmire's third outing takes him from Wyoming to Philadelphia to investigate a brutal assault on his daughter, Cady. Walt believes her ex-boyfriend is behind the crime and searches him out. But when he turns up dead, Walt is back to square one.

    Overall

    I love this series and all the characters are absolutely excellent. I definitely recommend this book, it might be one of the best in the series. On a personal note I was not completely satisfied with the romance playing out this book. The Sheriff's previous romance, albeit with a serial killer, was much more tasteful. It just didn't seem right that his daughter was in the hospital and that at the same time he was having a sexual affair with a woman who is about the same age as his daughter. Although I grimaced alot at times, I still loved the book! Excellent narrator!

    When their village is attacked by trollocs, monsters thought to be only legends, three young men, Rand, Matt, and Perrin, flee in the company of the Lady Moiraine, a sinister visitor of unsuspected powers. Thus begins an epic adventure set in a world of wonders and horror, where what was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    Greg says: "This Series Rocks"
    "Sorry!"
    Overall

    I wasn't "crazy" about this book as other reviewers are. It was just ok. I'm glad I read it bc it had been on my 'to read' list forever. But now that I have, I don't think I'll go on to read any other books of the series. Perhaps one day, but not any time soon.

    Craig Johnson's mystery stories have earned him an esteemed position in the pantheon of contemporary crime novelists. In this fourth installment, Longmire is called to investigate a dead Vietnamese girl found along the Wyoming highway.

    Patroo says: "The best writer and the best reader get together"
    "Too short!"
    Overall

    I absolutley love this series! The narrator is excellent. I wonder had I come accross these stories in book form would I have enjoyed them as much as I do the audio versions--the narrator is THAT good! Even though this book is my least favorite of the series thus far, it still renders 4 stars. Do not 'skip it' as I have read other reviewers say. My only complaint, is that the stories seem successively shorter. I am trying to space the books as well as I can but they seem to end too quickly for my taste.

    Claire Danvers has her share of challenges---like being a genius in a school that favors beauty over brains, dealing with the homicidal girls in her dorm, and above all, finding out that her college town is overrun with vampires. On the up side, she has a great roommate (who tends to disappear at sunup) and a new boyfriend named Shane, whose vampire-hunting dad has called in backup: cycle punks who like the idea of killing just about anything.

    Karen M. Arlington, VA says: "You have to read the 1st book to understand this 1"
    "Not worth credits!"
    Overall

    First off, I am a 30 something adult. And although I do read YA fiction at times and have enjoyed it, I must admit this book didn't really grab me. I do like the strong heroine of this series though. I am usually forgiving of narrators to a fault but this is one of the few times I just could not. Her voice sounded too mechanical.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    "Absolutely loved it!"
    Overall

    Yes, the 1st 7 hours are a little slow. It is mostly character and place description which is pretty to listen to but not really engrossing. But once that is over the plot really takes hold, and I have to admit that I was held totally captive. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical fiction, interesting characters, adventure, and of course, romance.
