    The first time Eby Pim saw Lost Lake, it was on a picture postcard. Just an old photo and a few words on a small square of heavy stock, but when she saw it, she knew she was seeing her future. That was half a lifetime ago. Now Lost Lake is about to slip into Eby’s past. Her husband, George, is long passed. Most of her demanding extended family are gone.

    I love SAA. This a a good book and I don't regret getting it, but it was not my favorite of her stories. It got a little overly complicated and it felt unresolved at the end. Not bad, just not great.

    The New York Times best-selling author of The Girl Who Chased the Moon welcomes you to her newest locale: Walls of Water, North Carolina, where the secrets are thicker than the fog from the town’s famous waterfalls, and the stuff of superstition is just as real as you want it to be.

    Story

    It took a little while for all the pieces of the story to develop, but once it does it is a wonderful story about generations and connections. The narrator took some getting used too, but it wouldn't keep me from listening again....the voice just doesn't quite fit. Overall, worth the credit.

    Aislinn Andrews met Lucas Greywolf under unusual circumstances – she caught the escaped convict raiding her refrigerator. But was he a troublemaker who aroused dissidence among Arizona’s Native Americans…or a hero who’d gone to prison for a crime he hadn’t committed? It didn’t really matter now, since Lucas Greywolf had taken her hostage. He was going home to the reservation of his birth, honor bound to pay last respects to his dying grandfather. And Aislinn was his ticket home.

    Story

    I am a big fan of Sandra Brown and love her work, with that being said I would have to tell you that this book is horrible. I really liked the concept, but the characters are angry and confrontational toward each other to the point that their relationship is unbelievable. The constant racial hatred gets old, especially since the lead female character just keeps taking it from him.
    It just doesn't work......

J., and he’s determined to bring her back home where she belongs.

    Story

    It is very irritating to be enjoying a series and have the narration changed mid-stream! It doesn't feel like the same storyline. Also, could you please get a narrator that can correctly pronounce the big words....I spent half the time correcting his pronunciations. I agree with everyone else's statements that the over done hick-like accents make the Kelly's seem like idiots. I wanted to like this story, but I really didn't. If you are reading the series, you probably need to read this one to follow the storyline, but.......it is definitely not the same series.

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    Story

    I have been waiting for the final book of this trilogy and I am soo disappointed. The entire book is slow moving and a let-down compared to the two previous books. I don't want to give away the ending, but let's just say I was shocked and angry at how Ms. Roth decided to end the story. This had a lot of potential and none of it was achieved. Don't waste your credit....be happy with the first two and move on!

    Twenty months ago, Jamie and Lauren crashed a coven meeting in Chicago - a visit they barely remember. For Beth Landler, it was the moment that fractured her circle and awakened her need for an entirely different kind of magic. The kind only found in Witch Central. If she can dig up the courage to go.

    Story

    Fantastic performance by Martha Harmon Pardee, again, I can't imagine another voice for this series. That being said, I was sadly disappointed in the story. The dramatic change to Nell's character didn't fit, and was unbelieveable. Throughout the book the reader feels like they are reading an infomercial for accepting and understanding autism and aysburgers (sp?). The entire work is very preachy and takes away from the wonderful characters and dynamic of the work. I have truly loved this series, but I wish I hadn't wasted the credit on this chapter of the story......

    Quentin Coldwater is brilliant but miserable. A senior in high school, he's still secretly preoccupied with a series of fantasy novels he read as a child, set in a magical land called Fillory. Imagine his surprise when he finds himself unexpectedly admitted to a very secret, very exclusive college of magic in upstate New York, where he receives a thorough and rigorous education in the craft of modern sorcery.

    Abby has just arrived in Summerville, Ohio, with her placid Newfoundland, Bowser. She's reluctantly inherited her grandmother's coffee shop, but it's not long before she's brewing up trouble in the form of magical baked goods and steaming up her life with an exasperating college professor. And then there's Daisy, a Web-code writer, and her hyperactive Jack Russell, Bailey. Her tightly wound world spins out of control when she discovers the chaos within and meets a mysterious dog trainer.

    Enjoyable weekend read. Some concepts were a little over the top, but you get caught up in the story. Not Jennifer Crusie's best work, but not bad either.
