    Today is Rachel McAllister's birthday. With her dreams indefinitely paused - she turned her family's struggling ranch into the Sundance Dude Ranch - it's not exactly the birthday of the century. But she's about to receive one heck of a present…. Matt Gunderson is back in town. The boy who broke her teenage heart into a gazillion pieces. And being a pro bull rider has definitely done something for his physique. Mmm. Their families have been silently at war for years. And with Matt on a break from the rodeo circuit, Rachel has only a few days to see if the chemistry is still sizzling.

    STORY WASNT BAD, WAS AN EASY LISTEN TO KEEP ME FOCUSED AT WORK

    TWISTS?


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Montana Chase?

    SOMEONE LESS MONOTONE WHO CAN DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN CHARACTERS MORE


    Was You're Still the One worth the listening time?

    SURE

    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    Where does The Kitchen House rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book rates in my top 5 at least


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Kitchen House?

    The fire!


    Which character – as performed by Orlagh Cassidy and Bahni Turpin – was your favorite?

    I liked them all but if I had to choose I'd say Belle


    If you could take any character from The Kitchen House out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Mama, she seems like she has a lot of interesting stories and wisdom.

  • Water for Elephants

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.
