    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.

    I was a bit disappointed on the ending. Or maybe there's a sequal coming :) But on the whole nice chick-lit.

    Since I finished this book a week ago, I don't think my cheeks have still recovered out of all that smiling I did when listening to it. Not only is Laurel Lefkow my favourite narrator and such a talent, the story is truly funny. After Second Assistant, I was on the fence, but this one truly tipped the scales. Please, please, please someone convince Mimi and Clare to co-author another book on Lizzie and Luke.

    The United States is near total collapse. But 87% of the population doesn't care: they're addicted to flashback, a drug that allows its users to re-experience the best moments of their lives. After ex-detective Nick Bottom's wife died in a car accident, he went under the flash to be with her; he's lost his job, his teenage son, and his livelihood as a result. Nick may be a lost soul, but he's still a good cop, so he is hired to investigate the murder of a top governmental advisor's son.

    Story

    I didn't make it past 1hour. I was so looking forward to another Joe Barrett narration, but whoever of the narrators starts off, is very obnoxious and pompous voice. Couldn't get into the story at all, although, it sounded like an exciting one.

    The plot was easy to listen chick-lit, perhaps a bit unpredictable ending the "best friend" was sometimes even more interesting character than Brooke, but I just loved the narrator. She put so much life into the text, good job!

    When John and Jean Silverwood, both experienced sailors, decided to give their four children a taste of life on the high seas, they hoped the trip would offer important learning experiences - not only about the natural world but about the beauty of human life stripped down to its essence, far from civilization. But the adventure that awaited them would surpass anything they could have imagined.

    Story

    In over 30 years I've put a book down, literally or voice-wise, only a handful of times, but this turned out to be one of those times. The first part, Jean's narrative, is interesting, riveting, captivating. Their experience is amazing and scary. But the second part... boring, detail-oriented, unrelevant. I would have appreciated the historical accident reference for a bit, but it seemed to go on and on and on... I just could not listen to anymore, I'm sorry.

    Sean Kowalski no sooner leaves the army than he's recruited by Emma Shaw to be her fake fiance;. Emma needs to produce a husband-to-be for her grandmother's upcoming visit, and, though Sean doesn't like the deception, he could use the landscaping job Emma's offering while he decides what to do with his civilian life. And, despite his attraction to Emma, there's no chance he'll fall for a woman with deep roots in a town he's not planning to call home.

    This book is well-balanced, not stretched for too long. Predictable, but excellently simple for exercise listening. Cotton candy sweet :)

    So far this has been an excellent listening. The reader is very good, and while it takes quite a bit concentration to stay with the story (so many characters and fast-paced events), it's very exciting. Quaranteed Clancy :)
