    A sophisticated, pause-resistant double love story spanning 40 years - an unforgettable Brief Encounter for our times. It is 1960. When Jennifer Stirling wakes up in the hospital, she can remember nothing - not the tragic car accident, not her husband, not even who she is. She feels like a stranger in her own life until she stumbles upon an impassioned letter, signed simply "B", asking her to leave her husband. Years later, a journalist named Ellie discovers the same enigmatic letter in a forgotten file in her newspaper's archives....

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Letter from Your Lover to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the way it didn't give away the ending and let you have some hope. I loved the characters-they were very real in their feelings and actions.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Lyons – was your favorite?

    I thought she really captured Jennifer-the socialite, but also, the lost girl


    If you could take any character from The Last Letter from Your Lover out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I think I would take Jennifer-she seems so genuine and really cared about people. I'd like to know how she brought out the best in others,


    Any additional comments?

    My daughter told me to listen to this book and I'm so glad that I did. It had romance, mystery,sorrow, but with a happy ending. What more could you ask for?

    What did you love best about The Girl You Left Behind?

    I loved the characters Sophie and Liv and how invested I quickly became in their lives


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Girl You Left Behind?

    The ending was so dramatic. I was literally holding my breath.


    Have you listened to any of Clare Corbett and Penny Rawlins ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I had listened to the first Jo Jo Moyes and loved it-not sure if same performer, but really enjoyed the performances of these readers.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It did have very sad parts but,also, some very witty dialogue. I really felt like I knew the characters and really cared what happened to them.


    Any additional comments?

    I've only read 2 by Jo Jo Moyes, but plan to explore her other books soon

    New York Times best-selling novelist Nora Roberts captivates millions of fans with her provocative blend of scorching passion and chilling suspense. With Carnal Innocence, she creates a gripping tale of murder, infatuation, and true love in a small southern town. After beautiful concert violinist Caroline Waverly breaks up with her conductor and lover Luis, she escapes to her late grandmother’s home in Innocence, Mississippi.

    What would have made Carnal Innocence better?

    a different narrator would have allowed you to at least get into the story. however, the part of the story that i listened to was stereotypical and i didn'[t really invest in the characters. not at all like Nora Roberts other books where I love the characters and really care about them


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    too stereotyped-i could give the dialogue before i heard it


    How could the performance have been better?

    just a straight read would have been better than destroying the Southern accents.


    Any additional comments?

    i'm turning this book back in.

    Alexander McCall Smith’s No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series has become a worldwide phenomenon thanks to the appeal of endearing protagonist Precious Ramotswe and the author’s charmingly quirky prose. In this 13th installment, Mma Ramotswe’s attention is focused on a pesky disciplinary problem at her adopted daughter’s school - while Grace Makutsi adjusts to wedded bliss and the famed Clovis Andersen arrives in Botswana looking for more than bush tea.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection in three words, what would they be?

    Many issues are facing and the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency and a special visitor has come to see them. Once again the Ladies are getting involved and helping others. As always, the characters are interesting and yet reflect our everyday issues of trust and doing the right thing. I'm ready for the next adventure.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how Clovis Anderson was helpful, humble and in the end was himself healed.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I was happy that there was resolution for Grace and Putti with their house. I was afraid that wasn't going to have a happy ending.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did both-that's the way with Botswana


    Any additional comments?

    I love this narrator. Don't think I can ever just "read" these books again. So great to hear her voice. Makes me feel like I'm there in Botswana and the Speedy Motors.

    After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.

    What made the experience of listening to Notorious Nineteen the most enjoyable?

    Notorious Nineteen does not disappoint. You'd think Stephanie and Lula would have run out of crazy situations, but they are still finding them. More cars blown up, more rescues by
    Ranger.More development with Morelli. This book even had a good mystery going.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The scene at the nude beach was hilarious-I could picture it all. The action parts of the story were exciting and somewhat believable. Joe and Stephanie's relationship is definitely getting more interesting.


    Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favorite?

    Lula
