    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    What did you love best about The Witness?

    I think I had just about given up on Nora Roberts. I don't like her "In Death" work and hadn't read anything of hers that was really great in quite a while. HOWEVER! The Witness did not disappoint. I would put it up there with Blue Smoke, Northern lights and Angel Falls. Great characters, great dialog, great suspense. I'll definitely listen to this one again! YAY Nora! Oh, and fabulous narration! Yay Julia!

    Miss Linnet Berry Thrynne is a Beauty... Naturally, she's betrothed to a Beast. Piers Yelverton, Earl of Marchant, lives in a castle in Wales where, it is rumored, his bad temper flays everyone he crosses. And rumor also has it that a wound has left the earl immune to the charms of any woman. Linnet is not just any woman. She is more than merely lovely: her wit and charm brought a prince to his knees. She estimates the earl will fall madly in love - in just two weeks. She is more than merely lovely: her wit and charm brought a prince to his knees.

    With the scandalous nature of her birth to live down, Isabella Fairmont dreams of a proper marriage—even if a passionless one. She saves her deepest desires for the novel she dares to pen, wherein a handsome lord with dark powers seduces her. But then her courtship with an appropriate suitor is threatened by the sudden attentions of the reclusive Earl of Black… whose pale blue eyes and brooding sensuality are exactly as she described in her book.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I listened to Pride and Passion by the same author before listening to this story and thought it was good. When I purchased this this one I didn't realize it was a different narrator. What a huge difference it made. Even though I really want to know how this ends, I may just need to pick up a copy on my kindle because I can't trudge through this anymore.

    What made the experience of listening to The Strangers On Montagu Street the most enjoyable?

    I've enjoyed this series a lot. I don't think this was the best book in the series, but I was happy to get it. I've read on the author's blog that she won't be doing any other Melanie and Jack books...I think that's a mistake, but maybe she'll give us some follow up through her other characters.

    Keeley Murdock's wedding to A.J. Jernigan should have been the social event of the season. But when she catches her fiance doing the deed with her maid of honor at the country club rehearsal dinner, all bets are off. And so is the wedding. Keeley pitches the hissy fit of the century, earning herself instant notoriety in the small town of Madison, Georgia.

    Taunya says: "Good story, but a Southern narrator is better"
    "Can't go wrong!"

    This is a great listen! Good narration and hilarious story! Well worth my time and credit.

    The thing about Jane Spring is...at 31, she has everything a woman could ask for and seemingly everything a man could long for - great legs, brains, rising star status in the Manhattan D.A.'s office - but she just can't find a man who'll fall madly in love with her. Men are always asking her out, but for some reason no one wants a second date.

    Jody says: "A very silly book"
    "Fun and Hilarious!"
    Overall

    I laughed out loud many, many times while listening to this book! What a great story idea! I've recommended to several people who also loved it! Give it a try!

    Min Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairy tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet. Cal Morrisey knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs. When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again. But Fate has other plans.

    I've listened to this book several times over the last few years and I love it! If you like Susan Elizabeth Phillips titles like "Natural Born Charmer", you'll like this! Great characters, witty dialog and good narration. Worth the credits or the cash!

    New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, Victoria Alexander's historical romance novels are favorites with listeners looking for steamy tales of the heart. Set in London in the early 1800s, The Lady in Question follows a debutante on her quest for love. Widow Delia Effington is lonely until she meets the handsome Viscount Tony St. Stephens who makes her heart race. But what she doesn't know is that Tony, in disguise, has had his eye on her for quite some time.

    A says: "Good start, good reader, slow middle"
    "Fun listen"

    I thought this listen was fun. Historical Romance can get too cheesy for me, but this one seemed just right!

    Workaholic attorney Samantha Sweeting has just done the unthinkable. She's made a mistake so huge, it'll wreck any chance of a partnership.

    "Not as good as I hoped."
    Overall

    I so love Sophie Kinsella. I enjoyed the first 3 Shopaholic books and raved about Can you keep a secret to all my friends, but I just didn't enjoy this listen. I found the story tedious and the main character just alittle too "out there" and the reader's voice annoying. Sorry Soph, I still love your work and will continue to buy your books!
