    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend it because it is a light listen and moves very well. Does not have so many characters that it is hard to keep track of them.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How Skye puts her nose into everything, and everyone just excepts it.

    Cara Donovan's summer tutoring job is turning out to be a challenge - and not just because of her troubled 12-year-old student. It's his uncle Josh who's the real problem. If problem is the word for an irresistibly cocky, muscle-bound rancher with a taste for tight Levi's and shameless flirtation…Cara is nothing like the wallflower Josh King remembers good-naturedly teasing in high school. This Cara is gorgeous, confident, fun. From the moment the fiery teacher steps foot on his family's Lazy K Ranch, the stubborn playboy is determined to corral her. So what happens when his luscious lover takes over the reins?

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Clean up the language. The F word didn't add anything to this story, and it was used around Seth the boy in the book. This language may be exceptable to some people, but not to anyone in the three generations in my family.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kristen Proby again?

    NO WON'T WASTE MY MONEY ! I think the story was going to be good, but she needs to expand her vocabulary so she doesn't have to use offensive language. I know you will call me a prude and I know I am, but I know a lot of prudes just like me.


    What about Deacon Lee and Elizabeth Louise ’s performance did you like?

    They were very good, and I liked the voice changing it kept me more into the story. I only got two hours in before I stopped listening.


    What character would you cut from Loving Cara?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    I think I have said it all.

But it turns out she’ll need to form an alliance with the man she holds responsible for the death. And uncovering answers may mean bringing down the program her husband believed in.

    Where does Twilight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks in the top 25. But I have listened to over 400 books


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way she would just keep fighting her way through everything to get the answers she needed


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

    Yes and this is pretty much her standard.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Personal conflict


    Any additional comments?

    This book held my interest and I wanted to listen to it straight through, but couldn't because of other obligations.

    What did you love best about A Proposal for Christmas?

    Both of the stories were sweet, and I enjoyed the stories, but I would have liked the second one better if narrated by someone else.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jack Garrett and Gabra Zackman ’s performances?

    I enjoyed the Jack Garrett performance, but I do not like Gabra Zackman's.

    Sparks fly and computers crash when Claire Maxwell's cybercafe is used for criminal activities. She's thrown into the midst of an undercover operation and doesn't like it one bit. She really doesn't like being thrown in the company of the hot private eye handling the case. Claire doesn't believe in love or happily ever after anymore. Can the handsome P.I. change her mind?

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the book, but the reader not so much.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Texan Undercover?

    When they realized who was behind all of the hacking.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Courtney Tulba?

    Just about anyone but Courtney Tulba. She made Clair sound like an idiot, and Richard sound like a whiney jerk. Also she made Dillions partner sound like he only half cared what was going on by the way she made him talk. Very poor!


    Could you see Texan Undercover being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No

    What did you like best about this story?

    Old love reignited,


    Would you be willing to try another one of Erin Mallon’s performances?

    Wish I didn't have to listen to her again, but have to if I want to continue with series. She is very bad with the different voices. She is nasal, and whiney with the women and teenage voices. This is the second book I have listened to by her and she likes to make the women sound whiney and rather pathetic.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Moonshell Beach to be better than the print version?

    I like listening better because I can continue to do other things and still enjoy a romance along the way.

    His trying to protect her when people are scheduling her appearances.


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