    Carlene Rivers is many things. Dutiful, reliable, kind. Lucky? Not so much. At 30, she’s living a stifling existence in Cleveland, Ohio. Then one day, Carlene buys a raffle ticket. The prize: a pub on the west coast of Ireland. Carlene is stunned when she wins. Everyone else is stunned when she actually goes. As soon as she arrives in Ballybeog, Carlene is smitten, not just by the town’s beguiling mix of ancient and modern but by the welcome she receives.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Mary Carter? Why or why not?

    Hope Dunne has carved out a name for herself as a top photographer, known the joys of marriage and motherhood and the heartbreak of loss. In her chic SoHo loft, Hope is content with her life, finding serenity and beauty through the lens of her camera. She isn't looking for a man or excitement. But these things find her when she accepts a last-minute assignment to fly to London at Christmas and photograph one of the world's most celebrated writers - an Irish-American author known for novels of thrilling literary darkness.

    Would you try another book from Danielle Steel and/or Mel Foster?

    Probably not


    Has Matters of the Heart turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    The book could be cut by at least 1/4 if Danielle Steele would quit repeating herself and stating the obvious. It did not change the story line to tell me 4 times that authors don't pay income tax in Ireland. Her writing was good enough that I understood the emotion or implication but the next sentence spelled it out as if I have no understanding of English. I don't remember her writing being so redundant but I will remember now to steer clear of Danielle Steele.

    Jane Hayes is a seemingly normal young New Yorker, but she has a secret. Her obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, is ruining her love life: no real man can compare. But when a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become realer than she ever could have imagined.

    ElChangoPelon says: "Fun read"

    Overall

    Having not read many of the Jane Austin novels, I am now inspired to do so. This was a good, quick listen and I found it quite amusing. I enjoyed the narrator as well. A great mix of old and modern

And can Abigail understand the importance of his pledge?

    Maura Carmody's off on the trip of a lifetime. A talented chef, she's travelling around Ireland for a month to promote Australian food and wine. Maura's expecting a straight forward business trip. But what she gets is a whirlwind of mishaps, misunderstandings, rivals and revelations, and Dominic Hanrahan, who's giving her plenty of food for thought.

    Overall

    Great narration! The accents remind me of my recent trips to both countries. I could easily follow along the main character's sightseeing of Dublin. Makes me want to go back to Ireland and Australia.
