    Doctor Jeffrey Logan, daytime TV's most loved psychologist, has a top-rating talk show seen around the world – and his picture-perfect life is completed by his talented lawyer wife, Stephanie Tyler, their 16-year-old daughter Chelsea, and 13-year-old J. T. But this image of domestic bliss is shattered when Stephanie is killed instantly by a bullet from a big-game rifle in the family's pristine Beacon Hill kitchen.

    You are about to travel to Edgecombe St. Mary, a small village in the English countryside filled with rolling hills, thatched cottages, and a cast of characters both hilariously original and as familiar as the members of your own family. Among them is Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired), the unlikely hero of Helen Simonson's wondrous debut. Wry, courtly, opinionated, and completely endearing, Major Pettigrew is one of the most indelible characters in contemporary fiction.

    Sara says: "A Surprising Treat!"
    "Witty, funny, romantic and insightful"
    Overall

    This one has everything -
    I laughed aloud and cried throughout this book's subtle, and sometimes not-so-subtle reminders of today's lack of gentility. Humour, wit, generation, religious and culture clashes, young romance and later-in-life love are all beautifully handled. I will read this again and recommend it to all!

    Jessica Taylor is walking her dog in the rain when she meets the man of her dreams only to be struck by lightning moments later. When she wakes up in the hospital, the doctors insist she's someone else: Lauren Richardson, wife and mother of four. Laurens husband wants nothing more than for life to get back to normal - complete with a well-organized house and very properly behaved children. But Lauren's kids haven't been allowed to have much fun, and one of them has special needs. Can Jessica embrace this family of strangers and become the wife and mother they need?

    Such an unusual premise, beautifully written. Very pleasant narrator read this wonderful story that kept me hooked from the first sentence to the very last word! Write more, Melanie Rose - I'm waiting!

    Tessa Russo is the mother of two young children and the wife of a renowned pediatric surgeon. Despite her own mother's warnings, Tessa has recently given up her career to focus on her family and the pursuit of domestic happiness. From the outside, she seems destined to live a charmed life. Valerie Anderson is an attorney and single mother to six-year-old Charlie - a boy who has never known his father.

    "Wonderful Narrator"
    Overall

    An insightful book about a love affair from the points of view of both women - the wife and the "other woman" - made even better by the narration of Cynthia Dixon.

    The scene of this entertaining story is laid in a charming English village. The plot centres round Miss Barbara Buncle, a maiden lady who was obliged to write a book because – as she naively explained – her dividends were so poor. Unfortunately, Miss Buncle had no imagination, so she wrote about her friends – quite kindly and truthfully, of course, for she was a benevolent and veracious soul.

    Heather says: "So good, I'll read them all!!"

    Overall

    I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. It is a "period piece" actually written in the period. It was written in the thirties - when the vocabulary was prettier, the manners were kinder and the people were gentler. Sometimes I wished I were reading on my Kindle (for the instant dictionary) but then I would have missed the narrator's delivery - which was spot on - she changed voices for all characters. I plan to listen to all available D. E. Stevenson's books. Miss Buncle and her cast of characters were so entertaining and I got a glimpse of life in England in the thirties.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "When is the sequel coming?"
    Overall

    This is a well-written, beautifully-read, amazing and entertaining book. I didn't want it to end.
    Read it - everybody!

    A great read. The narrator is fabulous!
    My second book - but not the last - by this author who had me laughing aloud while I made dinner, did the laundry, etc. An entertaining read - chic lit at its best! Our heroine reminds me of Becky Bloomwood - landing herself in and then trying to find a way out of dilemmas!
