    First, let me say I remember reading this in middle school and I liked it. It wasn't a Flowers from The Storm but it was a great read, as are all of her books. My favorite is The Indiscretion, but I digress. Her Judy Cuevas books are great too. When I heard the sample, immediately I tried to find more info about Violet Primm through Google, because being a devout Outlander fan since 2000s I knew that voice sounded familiar. And look and behold, even back in town 2010 or 2011 someone thought she sounded like the Goddess, Davina Porter. And they are on point. This is Davina Porter. I can't really find anything else on Audible read by her. Not a lot on Google. I haven't even started to listen to this book yet, but Hey I will listen to Davina Porter read the phone book ( remember those?) and I remember loving the book when younger. I will enjoy this.

    Fifty years after her death, Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe still beguiles the world, her image enthralling millions. Many books have attempted to explain her allure and tell her story, but none has succeeded as well as this work by acclaimed biographer Donald Spoto. Spoto’s exhaustive research uncovers a conspiracy of silence, allowing him to present the facts, free from often-repeated myths and speculation. Granted access to more than thirty-five thousand pages of formerly sealed files containing letters, diaries, appointment books, and other intimate papers, he also interviewed nearly two hundred people who had never before spoken on record.

    A wounded soldier and a rector's daughter discover strange goings-on in the sleepy village of Kurland St. Mary in Catherine Lloyd's charming Regency-set mystery debut. Major Robert Kurland has returned to the quiet vistas of his village home to recuperate from the horrors of Waterloo. However injured his body may be, his mind is as active as ever. Too active, perhaps. When he glimpses a shadowy figure from his bedroom window struggling with a heavy load, the tranquil faade of the village begins to loom sinister....

    Great Story!! Well developed characters. But the narrator needs to be able to better perform or convey different voices and not the much difference in pitch between men and women. Even with that this was a good listen, despite that. Just bought the next one I series. Didn't even wait for more credits.

    I don't believe in fairy tales and Prince Charming. I believe in fear. He taught me how to be afraid. We first met on a playground on a wonderful summer day. It was the first time he hurt me and it wouldn't be the last. For 10 years, he's been my tormentor and I've been his forbidden. But then he went away, and yet I was still afraid. Now, he's back, and wants more than just my tears. You see...he thinks I sent him away so now he wants revenge...and he knows just how to get it.

    I tried, really did. But I don't find it attractive or find it healthy to lust after or develop feelings over a long period of time for a juvenile delinquent that's repeatedly telling you " I'm going to kill you." And the narrator needs to learn how to say voluptuous. Couldn't finish it.

    This joint biography of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford follows Hollywood's most epic rivalry throughout their careers. They only worked together once, in the classic spine-chiller What Ever Happened to Baby Jane, and their violent hatred of each other as rival sisters was no act. In real life they fought over as many men as they did film roles.

    I read this when it first came out. At that time I was reading everything that John Grisham released. This is one of the best books he has written. I just listened to Camino Row and was missing the fast pace from his old books. Glad I took the chance and bought this. Now Just wishing he would release unabridged versions of The Client and The Pelican Brief. I haven't even finished it yet. That's how good GOOD this is.

    Ruby Scott is months behind on rent and can't seem to land a steady job. She has one chance to turn things around with a big audition. But instead of getting her big break, she gets sick as a dog and completely bombs it in the most humiliating fashion. All thanks to a mysterious, gorgeous guy who kissed - and then coughed on - her at a party the night before.
