    Faith Holland left her hometown after being jilted at the altar. Now a little older and wiser, she's ready to return to the Blue Heron Winery, her family's vineyard, to confront the ghosts of her past, and maybe enjoy a glass of red. After all, there's some great scenery there.... Like Levi Cooper, the local police chief - and best friend of her former fiancé. There's a lot about Levi that Faith never noticed, and it's not just those deep green eyes.

    Story

    It's one of those made for TV movies kind of romances. At times, I loved it, and then at other times, I wished it related to the audience a little more. Definitely a good light read, a good beach read, but not a great solid read.

    Jodi Picoult's poignant number one New York Times best-selling novels about family and love tackle hot-button issues head on. In The Storyteller, Sage Singer befriends Josef Weber, a beloved Little League coach and retired teacher. But then Josef asks Sage for a favor she never could have imagined - to kill him. After Josef reveals the heinous act he committed, Sage feels he may deserve that fate. But would his death be murder or justice?

    Story

    Such a heartwarming story. You go back and back with the characters. It's never easy to pick a side. And just when you think you've figured it out, you turn the page and change your mind. There were a few times that I was like, 'Come on. No way.' Keep going. I thought the narrator did a fantastic job with the delivery and pronunciation. It wasn't easy at times, but it was commendable. This isn't a light read, and you'll have to stay focused. But it's well worth the time put into it.

    After Andi Gordon is jilted at the altar, she makes the most impetuous decision of her life - buying one of the famed Three Sisters Queen Anne houses on Blackberry Island. Now the proud-ish owner of the ugly duckling of the trio, she plans to open her own pediatric office on the first floor, just as soon as her hunky contractor completes the work. Andi’s new future may be coming together, but the truth is she’s just as badly in need of a major renovation as her house.

    Story

    This book is less dramatic, more daily issues. It isn't some overdone sappy story about heartbreak with too many details to make it realistic. It's ups and downs, happy and sad where you feel for the characters. Three very different characters. It made me want to laugh and then cry as you journey through three families, three very different people, three lives all wound together. A must read.

    In 1918, after four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia to take a job as the lighthouse keeper on remote Janus Rock. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes only four times a year and shore leaves are granted every other year at best, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel.

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    In the end, I dare you to pick a side. I like that the ups and downs have you battling with and then defending the main characters. There really is no right and wrong, no way to choose a side when you can see both of them. The write does an excellent job of portraying the joy and sadness through this long journey and getting you to see the "light" at the end.


    What about Noah Taylor’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed the accent.


    If you could rename The Light Between Oceans, what would you call it?

    I feel like the title fits. It's as compelling as the story.

    He was tall, at least six feet, with dirty blond hair that hung over his eyes. His T-shirt read Nietzsche Is My Homeboy. So, that was Matt. Who Julie Seagles likes. A lot. But there is also Finn. Who she flat out loves. Complicated? Awkward? Completely. But really, how was this freshly-minted Boston transplant and newbie college freshman supposed to know that she would end up living with the family of an old friend of her mother’s? This was all supposed to be temporary.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes and no. It's a bit different from anything I've ever read, a good "in between" if you're burnt out on reading the same genre over and over. I can see why some people rate it low, as it may be so out of the norm. It's compelling at times and confusing, but the winding up and down of not knowing what the next page will contain kept me going. I'd give it a solid 3.5.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jessica Park? Why or why not?

    Sure. Why not?
