    Davie—an ugly duckling growing up in small-town Mississippi—is positive her life couldn’t be any worse. She has the meanest mother in the South, possibly the world, and on top of that, she’s pretty sure she’s ugly. Just when she’s resigned herself to her fate, she sees a movie that will change her life—Sixteen Candles. But in her case, life doesn’t imitate art.

    Stephanie says: "WOW."
    "Love It! Listened twice!"

    This is such a great story! I really loved it! I can identify with the characters! Just a great story!

    In Blues from Down Deep, Forster tells the story of Regina Pearson, a woman searching for the family she has never known. Unfortunately, her quest does not bring her the love and acceptance she expects. But just as the disappointment seems unbearable, Regina meets a man who is willing to show her what family is all about.

    This book was complicated... it was also a bit boring. It didn't grab you and make you want more...It was just a listen I wanted to hurry up and finish. I did like the way the story ended.

    Shawne Johnson’s emotionally stirring debut novel has been called “a rawer Waiting to Exhale.” Three African-American sisters, living in late 1960s Philadelphia, face issues such as drug addiction, racial tension, the Vietnam War, and the death of their father from lung cancer. Together they strive to avoid the dangers that surround them.

    New York Times best-selling author Carl Weber and award-winning novelist Eric Pete team up to deliver the first in a much-anticipated new trilogy. The Family Business features two times the heat, two times the fun, and two times the drama as the members of an unforgettable family (not to mention their lovers and hangers-on) find their way in and out of trouble. As their many fans will attest, Weber and Pete share a talent for penning juicy fiction that their audience can’t get enough of.

    New York Times best-selling author Carl Weber is a master at portraying unforgettable characters and complex, passionate relationships. Voluptuous Loraine Farrow is as successful as she is curvy, but life is never easy when you want to have your cake and eat it too. With her husband Leon confronting issues from his past, trouble arises on the homefront - and more drama is on the way in the form of Michael, an ex-lover desperate to rekindle his and Loraine’s once torrid flame.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Torn Between Two Lovers?

    The twist at the end!!!!! I love it!!!!
