    Other books in the Virgin River series. They share the setting of a small town in the mountains, Redwood forests and caring people with values we admire.

    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 cared deeply about the heroine and was fascinated at how she faced her challenges. Nora Roberts writes so well I felt I became one with the characters.

    The romance is beautiful, the suspense spine chilling, but not too much for the genre.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the setting of the small town of Bickford where she find herself after twelve years of running. Elizabeth is now known as Abigail. Brooks Gleason is the police chief with an insatiable curiosity and intrigued by the gorgeous, mysterious and armed Abigail. I enjoyed the easy development of the romance and lack of conflict between Elizabeth and Brooks. There was enough tension in other areas. The reader always knows that Abigail is likely to have to flee again. One doubts that one clever woman a small town police chief can bring down a powerful and dangerous Russian mob family. This hangs like a dark cloud over their blossoming romance.And ... I LOVED the DOG!


    Which character – as performed by Julia Whelan – was your favorite?

    The heroine, Elizabeth Fitch was my favorite. She is on the run from the Russian mafia. All she has is a sky high IQ, a talent for computer programming, and the will to live. At age Elizabeth rebels from her mother’s strict rules. A prodigy, Elizabeth was driven by her mother to dress a certain way, read the right books, and be a neurosurgeon. There was no room for fun, friends, and boys. Elizabeth had had enough and she creates a couple of fake IDs, one of which buys her a friend for the evening and the two go to one of the hottest nightclubs in Chicago. One thing leads to another and Elizabeth becomes witness to a mob hit that could bring down the Volkov organized crime family. Elizabeth runs for her life and builds a new identity.I ached for Elizabeth’s loveless childhood and hoped that something would finally go right for her. I was so committed to Elizabeth that I could not stop listening.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely, but its a long book. I wanted to starts it again right away.


    Any additional comments?

    I am impressed by Nora Roberts' skills at writing Romantic suspense and will certainly listen to more. Its the kind of book that liners in your mind long after you read or listened to it.

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    What did you love best about The Next Always?

    The hero was fantastic. One falls in love with him from the start. Masculine, and oh so sexy. One also cares for the Heroine soon. I love the snippets about the Inn being built, the ghost, the Heroine's Bookshop and her interaction with the Hero. I also liked the bit of suspense added.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Next Always?

    The hero is incredible in dealing with and bonding with her thee wild boys. It makes you root for him and want the romance to work out so much. I also loved the DOGS!


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    Lovely voice, so well read.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely and I had to rush out and buy the other two books in the series with the greatest of urgency.


    Any additional comments?

    My first Nora Roberts. A fantastic author.

    This is a completely updated edition of the 1983 classic that introduced a powerful method for gaining freedom from self-defeating behaviors and beliefs. Rick Carson, creator of the renowned Gremlin-Tamin Method, has revised the book to include fresh interactive activities, real-life vignettes we can all identify with, and new loathsome gremlins ripe for taming.

    When ex-Marine Walker Buchanan stops to help Elissa Towers change a tire, he tells himself it's just the neighborly thing to do. And when Elissa finds herself baking him a thank-you pie, she's just returning the favor...right?

    MaxineSap says: "exciting"
    "It's truly Irresistible"

    I found it impossible to stop listening to this book!
    Cecelia Frontero has a deep, silky voice and it goes so well with Walker's persona.
    One of the best books I've listened to.
    I'll be buying more books if Cecelia Frontero is reading .... that voice!!

    Stunning writing too - you can always count on Susan Mallery for a red hot, fast past book.
