    Caroline Maxwell would like nothing more than to join her brother, Eddie, and his friend Jack Culhane on their adventures. While Jack and Eddie are off seeing the world, buying up businesses and building wildly successful careers, Caroline's stuck at home frightening off the men her mother hopes will ask for her hand in marriage. When her mother sets her sights on the questionable Lord Bremerton as a possible suitor, Caroline struggles with her instincts and the true nature of her heart. She longs for adventure, passion, love, and most of all...Jack Culhane, an unconventional Irish-American bachelor with new money and no title.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly and/or Lorelei King?

    Not my favorite book. It is written as an historical piece. I like the characters, but it was a little too old fashioned for me. If you like that kind of thing, it is OK. Lorelei King is good as usual, there was one part in the narraration where she messed up, caught herself and reread the line, this was not caught in the editing room??


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Present day


    What three words best describe Lorelei King’s performance?

    Always good performance


    Could you see The Husband List being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no

    This is one of the best books, if not THE best book, I have ever read. I love the story, the narration, all of it. This is the second Kate Morton book I have read and I really enjoyed the other one, this was better!

    I liked the story, I am glad I kept listening, but I had a really hard time with the narration... not a huge fan of this woman's voice. That was the only drawback, but when you are LISTENING to a story, it is a huge part!! So if you can get past the narration, the plot is good

    To Clare Cosi's surprise, this fall's hottest fashion trend is anything caffeinated - because designer Lottie Harmon, a loyal coffeehouse customer, has just created an ingenious collection of coffee-inspired fashion accessories. So naturally Lottie chooses the Village Blend as the perfect backdrop for fall Fashion Week insiders to view her new line of "Java Jewelry." When barista Tucker unwittingly serves a poisonous latte to a prominent figure on the fashion scene, Clare suspects that the real target may have been Lottie. Now she must protect her thriving business, Lottie, and Tucker....

    entertaining and clean. I could listen to this with my teenage kids in the car. I know a lot of people were complaining about the amount of time she spends describing coffee, but I enjoyed that and I am not really a coffee drinker.

    Isabella, Mary, and Lauren are going to be bridesmaids in Kristi's wedding. On Sunday after Sunday, at bridal shower after bridal shower, they coo over toasters, eat tiny sandwiches, and drink mimosas. They're all happy for Kristi, but they do have the ups and downs of their own lives to cope with. Isabella is working at a mailing-list company, where she's extremely successful, and wildly unhappy. Mary is in love with a man who may never love any woman as much as he loves his mother. And Lauren, a waitress at a midtown bar, finds herself drawn to a man she's pretty sure she hates.

    This is really boring! Do not waste a credit on this!!! I agree that Audible should return the credit as I got this on their recommendation. Very broken up story line and uninteresting characters!!

    When Nikki Lanier signs up as a cosmetics rep at Carrie Mae, it’s hardly her idea of a dream job. With a degree in linguistics and a hard-core workout regimen, the 26-year-old redhead once had hopes for a real career. But unemployed and desperate to escape life at home with her nagging mother, she’ll try anything – even selling make-up to housewives. But soon, Nikki learns that the powder and lipstick are simply cover-up for The Carrie Mae Foundation: a secret organization of international espionage and high-tech mascara founded for the purpose of “helping women everywhere."

    Kate says: "Ready for the next installment"
    "Chick lit at its best!"
    Overall

    Easy read! I thought very entertaining. I listened to the first half while driving on a trip, and I couldnt wait to listen to the second half when I got home! Lighthearted and entertaining with a smart heroine, not just one who stumbled into trouble! I hope there are more to come!

    Private investigator Isabel Spellman is back on the case and back on the couch -- in court-ordered therapy after getting a little too close to her previous subject. Filled with the signature side-splitting Spellman antics, Revenge of the Spellmans is an ingenious, hilarious, and disarmingly tender installment in the Spellman series.

    Overall

    Easy to listen to- lighthearted and humorous. I would definitely recommend. Also it was something that you can listen to with your entire family and no one will blush!
