    Story

    She writes, what I refer to, as an easy read. The story flows, the characters feel real and you can get into the story on the first page. I love her story lines and the way she keeps a reader interested and eager to keep going. I enjoyed Robert Lawrences narrative of the book, he becomes part of the book.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Story

    I wasn't expecting to get into this story as much as I did. I enjoyed the premise of the story and very much enjoyed the narrator. His deliverance was the best I have heard and he help make it a great listen. I knew nothing of the story and thought it was well written, thought provoking and entertaining. I looked forward to his other books in the series.

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    Story

    I purchased this as a bargain and normally enjoy Nora Roberts Trilogies. The story was the same format as the Chesapeake series.
    I had a hard time enjoying the book as the readers voice of the characters was soooooooooooo bad that it interfered with my concentration.
    I had reserved the other two books but decided to delete them from my wish list. If I do decide to continue the series I will
    buy the Kindle version and read it.

    Story

    Just finished the series and found that I enjoyed this one the best. It's a light read, the story line the same in all the books; boy meets girl etc. etc. The storyline was incidental to the getting together of the couples in the first three books. I enjoy some romance however I want my storyline more. The series
    would not be complete without the fourth book.
    I prefer to listen to Nora Roberts as to reading her. It's easy to follow while I am driving. There were three narrators and the one in book 3 and book 4 were both very good. If you like Nora
    Roberts I would recommend these books.

    I wondered about the story in the beginning it was slow, however it really turned out to be a great book. The author wove a truly mesmerizing story. I kept thinking about the ending and how I never went there. Well worth the time.

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy I enjoy the Ireland setting, the story line and Fiacre Douglas narration. He did a wonderful job doing both male & female, it was done so smoothly that I could forget a man was doing it all.

    The 3rd book was the least interesting and I felt like Nora Roberts was winding down.

    I would recommend the books to anyone who likes Nora Roberts.

    Lunacy was Nate Burke's last chance. As a Baltimore cop, he'd watched his partner die on the street - and the guilt still haunts him. With nowhere else to go, he accepts the job as chief of police in this tiny, remote Alaskan town. Aside from sorting out a run-in between a couple of motor vehicles and a moose, he finds his first few weeks on the job are relatively quiet. But that's about to change.

    Story

    I've read Nora Roberts on and off for over 30 years. I been listening to books on cds for a few years, going to and from work, and loved the experience of a good book being read to
    me. Nora doesn't write bad books so any book she writes is a good read/listen. I am never disappointed in a woman's book being read by a man and this is not exception. Gary was great.

    In A.D. 327, a Roman galley barely escapes a pirate attack with its extraordinary cargo. In 1916, a British warship mysteriously explodes in the middle of the North Sea. In the present day, a cluster of important mosques in Turkey and Egypt are wracked by explosions. Does anything tie them together? NUMA director Dirk Pitt is about to find out.

    and have always enjoyed his Dirk Pitt novels. He puts so much information about historical happenings, people, events, global and ocean knowledge. He is the James Bond of the ocean. Great characters, bigger than life, but you got to love them. Never get tired of his stories. Scott Brick completes the picture.

    and was hooked on the story line. I purchased book 2 of this trilogy at a gas stop on a trip from AZ and so thoughly enjoyed it that I purchased book 3. I am always amazed by the imagination of the writers for this type of genre and I bless them for writing and sharing their stories. I thoughly enjoy the voice of Sam T, as the narrator makes or breaks the presentation of the book.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    another action pack twisty turning story of the great Harry Dresden. I never get tired of reading his books. The action does leave me exhausted though. Love it. John Glover does a great job in narrating the book.
