    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    It is always great when humor mixes with romance. Sarcasm is my favorite! First of Molly Harper for me, but kept buying her others. Always love Amanda Ronconi.

    Heather Wells is used to having her cake and eating it too, but this time her cake just might be cooked. Her wedding cake, that is. With her upcoming nuptials to PI Cooper Cartwright only weeks away, Heather's already stressed. And when a pretty junior turns up dead, Heather's sure things can't get worse - until every student in the dorm where she works is a possible suspect, and Heather's long-lost mother shows up. Heather has no time for a tearful mother and bride reunion. She has a wedding to pull off and a murder to solve.

    Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow's only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she'd like. Running all their daylight errands - from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg - gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship - and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

    A girl who believes trust can be misplaced, promises are made to be broken, and loyalty is an illusion. A boy who believes truth is relative, lies can mask unbearable pain, and guilt is eternal. Will what they find in each other validate their conclusions, or disprove them all?

    When three South Yorkshire friends picnic on top of an ancient fertility symbol, who could have known that within four months they would all have their own eggs fertilised! For Helen, pregnancy is a true come true. But the more the baby grows inside her, the more she can see her outwardly perfect marriage crumbling. For career-woman Janey, it is a nightmare. How could it have happened? She had her husband George, ecstatic at the prospect of being a dad, were always so careful over contraception.

    Would you listen to The Yorkshire Pudding Club again? Why?

    No. It was a fine book to listen to once. Just was not a "wow" book.


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

    Having babies? No...I have 2 and I am done!


    Have you listened to any of Colleen Prendergast’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    It was cute hearing about the pregnancy of the girls.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    She did fine.

    What could Jennifer Probst have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't really know...it just missed the special something that makes me want to go in that book's "world".


    What does Coleen Marlo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She made it so the words were not so much "lost in translation".


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    What did you like best about this story?

    Just that I had my jaw drop at times so I had to keep going.


    What about Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance did you like?

    They we perfect for the parts. Easy listen. I have told people this is a must read book but the audio will be more fun.


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

    It's a spoiler so I can't say.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't like books/movies about murder that will freak me out so I dont read them but I liked this a lot so now I will open up my genre search.

    Waverly Bryson is a successful businesswoman in her late 20s who almost has it all: a dream job in sports PR, two best friends, and a bar where everybody knows her name. What she doesn’t have is a ring on her finger. And after being ditched at the altar, she’s in no hurry to get one. Besides, plenty of other issues keep her busy, including her wayward father, a new rival at work, and an ever-nagging fear that her life is not turning out as she thought it would...or should.

    Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree.
