    Finally out of the celebrity spotlight and away from her mother's demands, Cilla is free to do what she loves: fixing up houses for profit. Her current project is personal. The Shenandoah Valley farm house was once the vacation home of Hollywood luminary Janet Hardy, Cilla's grandmother. When Cilla uncovers a stash of her grandmother's private letters, and begins asking questions about the past, she becomes the target of a crazed killer.

    I was glad to see Nora Roberts coming out with a book that was not a part of a trilogy, but this is a very disappointing book. Shallow characters, basic plot, the good guy is all good, etc.

    I miss the author who wrote Birthright - prolific is only good if the books are good.

    Henry Middlebrook is back from fighting Napoleon, ready to re-enter London society where he left it. Wounded and battle weary, he decides that the right wife is all he needs. Selecting the most desirable lady in the town, Henry turns to his best friend and companion to help him with his suit…Young and beautiful, war widow Frances Whittier is no stranger to social intrigue. She finds Henry Middlebrook courageous and manly, unlike the foppish aristocrats she is used to, and is inspired to exercise her considerable wit on his behalf.

    Story

    The narrator was very good, and a lot of the story was good. The dialogue was very well written, the story line was a good one even though it was a little drawn out, but the "hero" of the story was super annoying. Basically he whined throughout the whole book about his disability - he seemed to have a pity party in just about every chapter. I fast forwarded toward the end just to get through with the book.

    "I'm Lexi Carmichael, geek extraordinaire. I spend my days stopping computer hackers at the National Security Agency. My nights? Those I spend avoiding my mother and eating cereal for dinner. Even though I work for a top-secret agency, I've never been in an exciting car chase, sipped a stirred (not shaken) martini, or shot a poison dart from an umbrella. Until today, that is, when two gun-toting thugs popped up in my life and my best friend disappeared."

    Story

    The story is OK, not very deep and I would like it to be more about hacking than how inept she is around people. The narrator is fine with Lexi's dialog, but when she tries to do accents, they are so bad (especially Italian) that it is distracting from the story.

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    Story

    This book started off really bad - trite and boring, but the narrator was so over the top dramatic that I could not keep listening to see if things ever got any better. I tried twice and turned it off almost at once. She was loud and dramatic in just about every line she spoke. Could not imagine a whole book listening to this. I am not a fan of Ms. Robert's trilogy books but was willing to give this a try. Not happening - returning today.

    What disappointed you about Relatively Risky?

    This is a really light weight book. The premise sounded interesting, but it never delivered. None of the characters were ever fleshed out. I stayed until the end, but I had to forward through chapters to do it.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Kevin Scollin?

    Maybe

    Mercedes Hildebrand Ware is a member beyond reproach...until her life begins to unravel. When her husband betrays her, steals her money, and runs off to places unknown, it's something Frede would prefer to keep under wraps. The last thing she needs is to become fodder for the JLWC gossip mill. And to make matters worse, there's only one person in town who stands a chance at helping her get revenge - Howard Grout, a tasteless, gold-chain-wearing lawyer who has bought his way into Frede's tony neighborhood.

    What did you like best about The Devil in the Junior League? What did you like least?

    I liked the novel was based in Texas and was faithful to how things are there. I did not like the main character. It was very hard to feel very sorry for her since she was so sure she was wonderful and beautiful and evidently without a clue.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I felt that it was a cop out - an easy answer that left everything up in the air.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jenna Lamia?

    Yes - her voice seemed a mix of southern and texan, but still clear and understandable.


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

    No

    Gretchen Waters' writing career is cut abruptly short when she dies from a fall down a set of stone library steps. It is a tragic accident and no one suspects foul play, certainly not Gretchen's best friend from college, Jamie, who's been named the late author's literary executor. But there's an unfinished manuscript Gretchen left behind that is much darker than Tammyland: a book ostensibly about male country musicians yet centered on a murder in Gretchen's family that haunted her childhood.

    Story

    This story seems to really be mostly about the history of country western stars like Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette. The mystery part really was small and really easily figured out. The narrators did a good job but the two stories running together about the murdered woman and her friend were rather irritating and I could not really llike either woman.

    Instead of saying "I do" to Mr. Irresistible, Lucy Jorik hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle with a rough looking, bad-tempered stranger who couldn't be more foreign to her privileged existence. While the world searches for her, Lucy must search for herself, and she quickly realizes that her customary good manners are no defense against a man who's raised rudeness to an art form. Lucy needs to toughen up - and fast. Her great escape takes her to his rambling beach house on a Great Lakes island. Here, she hopes to find a new direction...and to unlock the secrets of this man who knows so much about her.

    Story

    For a long time anything that SEP wrote I bought immediately and loved and re-read often. This one is part of what is becoming just so-so books from a formerly great writer. The last three-four books have been disappointing and this one continues the trend. There were characters that seemed re-cycled from older books, seemingly token PC inclusions - a multi-racial child, gay relationship, veterans with PST - really?? These are important issues, but here seemed to be just included as a way of checking off a list. The e-book was far shorter than some of her other ones, but seemed to drag, to the point I actually fast forwarded twice.

    I will not be re-listening to this book and cannot recommend it.

    Poets had always lived there, the locals claimed. When Sadie inherits Poet’s Cottage in the Tasmanian fishing town of Pencubitt, she sets out to discover all she can about her notorious grandmother, Pearl Tatlow. Pearl was a children’s writer who scandalised 1930s Tasmania with her behaviour. She was also violently murdered in the cellar of Poet’s Cottage and her murderer never found. Sadie grew up with a loving version of Pearl through her mother, but her aunt Thomasina tells a different story, one of a self-obsessed, abusive and licentious woman. And Pearl’s biographer, Birdie Pinkerton, has more than enough reason to discredit her.

    Story

    Concept was interesting and most of the story held my interest. However, it seemed to drag in spots and the ending just seemed not to fit the rest of the story. The whole book held supernatural elements that ran through the whole book until the end. There are two time periods and both were handled very well - there was no confusion as to which period you were in. Somehow though when it was over I felt that there were unanswered questions.

Special Agent Jack Pallas is assigned to the investigation - the same Jack Pallas who still blames her for nearly ruining his career three years ago. Now the pair will have to put their rocky past behind them, focus on the case at hand - and smother the flame of their sizzling-hot sexual tension.

    What did you like best about Something About You? What did you like least?

    The book is well written.


    What was most disappointing about Julie James???s story?

    It was just so average. Change the names and occupations and it could have been any of a number of romance books out on the market.


    Any additional comments?

    I guess my standards have been set by Jennifer Crusie and Susan Elizabeth Phillips - I just expect more out of a book.

    Philip Hawksbury, the Earl of Rothermere, obeying his father's dying wish, hies himself to Scotland to offer for one of the daughters of Alexander Kilbracken, the Earl of Ruthven. Frances Kilbracken, informed of the earl's arrival and his mission, disguises herself as a bespectacled dowd so she won't be the one selected by the young earl. But choose her he does, and for all the wrong reasons.

    Would you try another book from Catherine Coulter and/or Anne Flosnik?

    Don't think so. Good narrator, but if this book is any indication of Ms. Coulter's other books, I will pass.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Catherine Coulter again?

    Probably not.


    What character would you cut from Midsummer Magic?

    All of them - there was no character with any charm. The earl is a spoiled jerk and Frances is a somewhat whiny victim. The almost rape scenes where she was suppose to do her wifely duties were drawn out and distasteful.
