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

    Probably only to someone who reads all the time and likes this author


    Would you recommend A Knight in Shining Armor to your friends? Why or why not?

    I read great reviews and love this author so was excited to listen to it. I travel a lot for work so go through at least 2 audio books a week. This was a fun read but there are other time travel books I have enjoyed more and this was not up to par with many other of Dude Deveraux's books. I am in the minority on this however. Many people rave about it so I would say listen for yourself and decide.

  • Welcome to Temptation

    Story

    Sophie Dempsey wants to help her sister film a video and then get out of Temptation, Ohio. Mayor Phin Tucker wants to play pool with the police chief and keep things peaceful. But when Sophie and Phin meet, they both get more than they want. Gossip, blackmail, adultery, murder, vehicular abuse of a corpse, and slightly perverse but excellent sex: all hell breaks loose in Temptation.

    What other book might you compare Welcome to Temptation to and why?

    I love the characters and witty dialogue in Jennifer Cruise's books. This book keeps you entertained and laughing while also being very sweet. I did like Bet Me better though.

    A multiple RITA nominee, Karen White crafts engrossing stories that have found a special place in the hearts of fans nationwide. After The Rain stars freelance photographer Suzanne Paris. On her own since the age of 14, Suzanne has no intention of settling down in tiny Walton, Georgia. But to her surprise, Walton residents have a way of making even reluctant guests feel right at home. And the new connections she builds come in handy when a dark figure from her past returns, determined to ruin her life.

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

    Definitely, this was a sequel to Falling Home which was also quite good. This was even better. I liked the character development, the love story, re-visiting my friends from Falling Home, the deep friendships, and character growth and development. I also fell in love with the small town and folks who made up it.

    Karen White does not spend page after page on the love scenes, just enough to be interesting but not so much that you loose the story, Don't get me wrong I am a fan of Shades of Grey but many romance novels can repeat themselves so much that I want to fast forward to get back to the story.


    Have you listened to any of Jennifer Van Dyke’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Great job on narration


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

    The audio was hard to put down. I listened to it in my car and then did chores in the house so I could keep listening, taking it from room to room with me.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to 3 Karen White books so far and am ready to order another.
