    Dear Reader,You’ve probably heard that my wife has left me. Rachel’s pregnant, and she says she can’t handle the stress in our household anymore. My 13-year-old daughter, Jolene, is jealous of her. Maybe it’s my fault. As a widower I spoiled her - Jolene was reading over my shoulder just now and says that’s not true. She claims Rachel ruined everything. But that’s not true. The real question is: How can I get my wife back? I don’t even know where she is. She’s not with Teri Polgar or any of her other friends from the salon.

    "couldn't get through the first chapter, just awful"

    Story
    What disappointed you about 1105 Yakima Street?

    flat, predictable story and writing. The writing itself was just impossible for me - I couldn't stand it.


    What didn’t you like about Sandra Burr’s performance?

    Overacting. I guess it went with the cutesy-ness of the story.

    This is a story about a brother and a sister. It's a story about childhood and growing up, friendships and families, triumph and tragedy, and everything in between. More than anything, it's a story about love in all its forms.

    FanB14 says: "Poorly Executed"
    "so disappointed"
    Overall

    The story completely fell apart in the last part of the book. I was enthralled by the beginning, but then the plot disappeared and I was left with extravagant excessive writing which I suppose was intended to keep me listening until the end. Endless descriptions and scenes with no apparent attempt to keep any semblance of a plot moving along to any conclusion. I gave up. This was the first audio book I really disliked and I am very careful with my credits - I enjoy good writing. There are many other excellent well-written books to be read...and I can't stand wasting my time.
