    When empath Jade Calhoun moves into an apartment above a strip bar on Bourbon Street, she expects life to get interesting. What she doesn't count on is making friends with an exotic dancer, attracting a powerful spirit, and developing feelings for Kane, her sexy landlord. Being an empath has never been easy on Jade's relationships. It's no wonder she keeps her gift a secret. But when the ghost moves from spooking Jade to terrorizing Pyper, the dancer, it's up to Jade to use her unique ability to save her.

    Story

    I had a hard time getting through this and nearly gave up, but that's hard for me to do. There was just too much straining of my credulity and impatience with sex scenes to get over with so the story could go on. I finally finished reading the book on my kindle so I could get through the story faster and skip pages. If you like ghost stories, don't have a skeptical mind and get turned on by sexy scenes, you'll enjoy this book more than I did.

    When twenty-five-year-old Lyn sets off on her cruise vacation, all she wants is to forget that her dead fiance was a cheating scumbag. What she plans is a diversion uncomplicated by romance. What she gets is Braedon, an intriguing young surgeon. He's everything her fiance wasn't, and against the backdrop of the ship's make-believe world, her emotions come alive.

    Story

    This is a story full of adventure, danger, catastrophe, survival, loss and hope. Shipboard romance becomes something stronger under survival conditions on an uncharted island. Then everything changes disastrously. No spoilers here. The characters are strong and real. There is a nice continuance or re-emergence of characters throughout the story. The narration was very good and enhanced the tale. Very engaging. Heard to stop listening.

    Whatever You Do, Don't Run is a hilarious collection of true tales from top ­safari guide Peter Allison. In a place where the wrong behavior could get you eaten, Allison has survived face-to-face encounters with big cats, angry ­elephants, and the world's most unpredictable animals: herds of untamed tourists and foolhardy guides whose outrageous antics sometimes make them even more dangerous than a pride of hungry lions!

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of anecdotes from safari-land. A little bit coming-of-age, a little bit self-expose, a whole lot funny, and totally charming. Winding through the entire story is a surprising amount of information: history, natural history, animal behavior, botany, psychology, geography and probably a lot of other things I didn't notice because it was so gently integrated. These are stories of the bush told by a safari guide who loved the animals, birds and plants he lived and worked amongst. I suspect this will stay in my favorites so I can listen to bits of it again whenever I have a few minutes. Highly recommended.

    The overly scientific, always respectable, and socially awkward Alexander Banks has just been informed his name resides on a betrothal agreement right above the name of the worst chit in all of England. With a loophole that allows him to marry another without consequence before the thirtieth anniversary of his birth, Alex has only four weeks to find another woman and make her his wife. Being the logical scientist he is, Alex decides to take his friend's advice and treat his quest for a bride just like a science experiment...

    Story

    When a scientist tries to apply the theoritcal testing process to romance, something is bound to go wrong, right? And if he engages the assistance of his romantic objective in the process under false pretenses, he's an idiot. In the end, he's lucky he's surrounded by family who help him, because her family is on a course of destruction. Very entertaining.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Story

    I don't usually like books that anthropomorphosize animals. It's an eye-rolling premise. Normally. This is not a 'normal' book. This is a little piece of written artwork and the dog's narrative was perfect. No one else could have done it. This book is about a dog and his man, about racing cars, about how families support and betray each other, about success and failure, about living and dying, and mostly about love. This is a story told by a dog on the verge of human-hood.

    Story

    Ruth Rendell's books are time-released cleverness. All the time you're reading, your brain is storing information - without you realizing it - and for days, weeks, maybe years after you've finished the book, the stored bits will drop into your consciousness at the strangest moments. You will realize you didn't understand the full import of the book when you finished it. You will have a flash of insight, an eyebrow-raising or jaw-dropping AHA! moment as another hidden clue or bit of plot slips into its place or a layer is revealed. I'm still thinking about this book weeks after I finished it. Not because the Crocodile Bird was a gripping page-turner, though the story, told in Scheherazade-style chunks, is compelling: a young woman tells her boyfriend tales of her strange childhood with a murdering mother. It was beautifully written, of course, and the narration was good. I'm still thinking about it because the characters became real to me and I'd like to know what happens to them for the rest of their lives.
    I'm glad I read (heard) it and I recommend it to the readers who enjoy storytelling that expects your brain to get involved.

    Famous southern carriage-horse trainer Hiram Lackland, a handsome widower, dies mysteriously after retiring to a farm outside Mossy Creek. His estranged daughter, Merry Abbot, also a horse trainer, arrives to settle his estate. But Merry quickly plunges into bit-chomping dilemmas when her father's friend and landlord, mystery-novel maven Peggy Caldwell, insists he was murdered. Before Merry can so much as snap a buggy rein, a handsome and annoying GBI investigator, Geoff Madison, is on her case....

    Story

    Very entertaining, very educational, very worthwhile.
    Having no experience of 'driving' horses, or even awareness that carts and carriages are driven, I painlessly learned a bit about the sport. This story is about a woman whose father dies before she gets a chance to complete a reconciliation. When she inherits his life's dream property and its headaches, her life gets more complicated. It doesn't bog in despair, but it allows time and space for real grief. It's a decent mystery, too. I recommend it and I will be reading more of this writer's work.

    Renowned philanthropist and billionaire Paul Parnell had reached the pinnacle of monetary success, but not without cost. Had he put too much emphasis on work and spent too little time with his family? Determined to leave something far more valuable than money to his six children, Paul instructs his lawyers to create an unusual last will and testament. This unorthodox will, which stipulates that the lion's share of Paul's two-billion-dollar estate be given to the heirs who pass "the test", was Paul's last hope of creating a lasting legacy by inspiring his children to give back to society and embrace a code of moral values.

    The only reason this book didn't get five stars from me was that it dragged and lagged a bit. It was a bit predictable, too. However, the characters were well-developed and their growth was believable. I kept turning the pages with interest.

Meanwhile, Mummy is holed up in a tiny village called Tiddleton-under-Lovey with that droll Noel Coward! And I’m snowed in at Castle Rannoch with my bumbling brother, Binky, and sourpuss sister-in-law, Fig.

    Story

    Lady Georgiana stories delight me. The concept is simple: a young royal (35th in line for the throne) without any money or much life experience tries to make it in the world on her own. It's after the 1st great war in England and Scotland and life is hard for everyone. In this story, Lady G's awful sister-in-law makes it impossible for her to stay in the Scottish family castle for the holidays, so she applies for a job assisting an English aristocrat with a classic English Christmas house party.
    Bodies start piling up the day she arrives - one a day, made to appear accidental. Lady G determines she is 'noblesse oblige' to solve the murders before anyone else dies. Lord Darcy O'Mara, love of her life, shows up just in time to help her with enquiries and makes the season bright.
    Highly recommended.

    I read this book shortly after it was published. I didn't remember the story, but I remembered that I thought it was a good book. So I decided to listen to it. Good choice. DeMille could write a page-turning story, I knew. Scott Brick can tell his stories well, too.This is a good surprising mystery with an ending that makes you hope for a sequel.
