    In 2003, software engineer David Miller left his job, family, and friends to hike 2,172 miles of the Appalachian Trail. AWOL on the Appalachian Trail is Miller’s account of this thru-hike from Georgia to Maine. Listeners are treated to rich descriptions of the Appalachian Mountains, the isolation and reverie, the inspiration that fueled his quest, and the rewards of taking a less conventional path through life. While this book abounds with introspection and perseverance, it also provides useful passages about hiking gear and planning.

    Yes, I think I missed a lot the first time. Plus I would have and atlas handy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were too many to count.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are many moving parts in this book. If you have or are a hiker your feet hurt, you get thirsty, you are scared, You enjoy the triumphs as well as the challenges.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read many other accounts of walking the trail and this has been the very best one so far. Enjoy the hike!

    Trenton, New Jersey’s favorite used-car dealer, Jimmy Poletti, was caught selling a lot more than used cars out of his dealerships. Now he’s out on bail and has missed his date in court, and bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is looking to bring him in. Leads are quickly turning into dead ends, and all too frequently into dead bodies. Even Joe Morelli, the city’s hottest cop, is struggling to find a clue to the suspected killer’s whereabouts. These are desperate times, and they call for desperate measures.

    What did you love best about Top Secret Twenty-One?

    I love meeting the character's again and plot twists. I love granny and her adventures. I gave this four stars because I think the book was rushed. For instance the apartment manager.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really enjoy the whole story.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    When the same performer is used, I love the fact that the voices sound like the ones I remember from previous books.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Bob and the evidence.


    Any additional comments?

    This series seems short. 6 hours is not very many pages. Seems like they are becoming more like novellas. And quit frankly for the number of hours the price is higher than I like to pay.

    In Maid for the Billionaire Dominic Corisi knew instantly that Abigail Dartley was just the distraction he was looking for, especially since having her took a bit more persuading than he was used to. So when business forces him to fly to China, he decides to take her with him, but on his terms. No promises. No complications. Just sex. Abby has always been the responsible one. She doesn't believe in taking risks; especially when it comes to men - until she meets Dominic.

    Tired of the pace and noise of life near London and longing for a better place to raise their young children, Mary J. MacLeod and her husband, George, encountered their dream while vacationing on a remote island in the Scottish Hebrides. Enthralled by its windswept beauty, they soon were the proud and startled owners of a near-derelict croft house - a farmer’s stone cottage - on “a small acre” of land. Mary assumed duties as the island’s district nurse.

    What made the experience of listening to Call the Nurse the most enjoyable?

    The author used many different types of experiences, some were just about living in an isolated community. Not all were happily ever after stories, but all were interesting and some very funny. I also liked the descriptions of the islands and towns.


    What about Gwen Hughes’s performance did you like?

    I did like her voices. I thought the accents were good, but since I have never been there I might be wrong. Occasionally, I did not care for how she ended some sentences.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a fun read. The story and descriptions make the islands and the residents come alive.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rebecca is a strong woman and intelligent. She fought hard for justice and for God.


    What about Rebecca Musser’s performance did you like?

    The delivery was good, even though she wrote it her voice was clear and the inflections followed her experiences.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Too many to mention. This is a true story that is compelling. The biography is sensitive and loving. Her struggles are well written and well spoken. Some are terrifying and rock the deepest part of the soul.

    Where does 44 Cranberry Point rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the 4th book in the series that I have read. I enjoy following the character's lives. It is nice to have the background of the characters repeated too. The plots are good. I find myself reacting to the character's actions with comments!


    Any additional comments?

    With the number of characters in the book, I wish two readers had been hiring. Some of the voices are a bit too similar. especially the men's but it is not enough to stop me from reading.

    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.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    two tales


    Any additional comments?

    I like Janet's books. 17 and 18 should be read as one. She was losing her comic touch and in this book it just seemed that her writing was fresh again. Could be longer!

    Call Me Irresistible is the book Susan Elizabeth Phillips's readers have long awaited. Ted, better known as "little Teddy," the nine-year-old heartbreak kid from Phillips's first best seller, Fancy Pants, and as "young Teddy," the hunky new college graduate in Lady Be Good, is all grown up now—along with Lucy from First Lady and Meg from What I Did for Love. They're ready to take center stage in a saucy, funny, and highly addictive tale fans will love.
