    In this remarkable dual memoir, film legend Martin Sheen and accomplished actor/filmmaker Emilio Estevez recount their lives as father and son. In alternating chapters—and in voices that are as eloquent as they are different—they narrate stories spanning more than 50 years of family history, and reflect on their journeys into two different kinds of faith.

    I love JoAnne Fluke. These books are like taking a trip back to my favorite small town USA
    the characters are so awesome and she puts a new spin on it every time. I wish Hannah would go ahead a marry Norman though. I really hated Dr Bevn this book- great villain. It just was a great book and a must read in the series.

    The poor relations, those genteel paupers of society who live on little more than their dignity, have banded together and started The Poor Relation hotel, hoping to be bought out by their embarrassed relations - but as the hotel prospered, they began to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Now once more they are in need of funds. To stoop to crime in their days of poverty was one thing, but to turn to it again when they have enjoyed a certain amount of success is quite another. But they all agree: the hotel must go on.

    Life is not easy for the poor relations of England’s upper crust, but fate and clever schemes bring them together. Lady Fortescue and Colonel Sandhurst hatch a plan: What if they were to transform her decrepit Bond Street home into a posh hotel, offering their guests the pleasure of being waited upon by nobility? With the help of other down-and-out aristocrats, they do just that, and London’s newest hotel, The Poor Relation, is born. The establishment is an immediate hit with London’s most illustrious citizens, save the Duke of Rowcester....

    It wasn't my favorite book in the series. The historical story of John Wilkes Booth had me more engaged than the manage et toi between exhusband and professor. But for a chance to get back with my favorite characters from this series I still loved it.
    That said I do spend a lot of time listening to audible books and I love this narrators accents, childrens, adults and teen voices it was a good performance.

A local gathering place for generations, the saloon is now run by the Donaghue sisters, whose lives and hearts have been shaped by family tragedy and a haunting mystery.

    I've read her happiness key series and the shanandoah quilt series. I loved Whiskey Island the characters were very believable and midwestern. I love the Irish catholics in this part of the country. She goes from the present to a family history story from the prohibition The history was impeccable she must have researched the era of prohibition. It's much cleaner than most "romance" novels and not nearly as dry as a lot of historical fiction. Emily uses a pefect blend of each with a lot of suspense thrown in. Loved this book.

    It's light. It's clean. It's hilarious. The characters are very believable and well developed. The series is fantastic and runs together perfectly. Who doesn't love a circus! And lest you think this is a teen writing this- no this is a mom and teacher of teens. We all love these books. I just wish she could write the sequels faster. Great work.

    I've read the series and was waiting for this book I loved the main characters appearances in her previous books but this book did not make sense for me. It had its good moments and I wouldn't miss it cause it was part of the series. I guess I just expect phenomenal from Lisa Klypas every time this was not her very best.
