    Life gets complicated when love turns out to be nothing like you expected - and the woman you want is too close to touch. Gretchen Kaiser is a workaholic corporate honcho with issues - she’s got daddy issues, she’s got female-executive-in-a-man’s-world issues, and she’s got one-night-stand issues. What she doesn’t have are love issues. She isn’t looking for it, she doesn’t feel she needs it, and she doesn’t expect to find it…certainly not right under her nose. Kylie O’Brien is the kind of girl who believes in true love and is willing to wait until it shows up at her door.

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

    Entertaining...realistic and modern for those interested in alternative life style romances


    Would you be willing to try another book from Georgia Beers? Why or why not?

    Absolutely!!!!! And I'd be happy to help select as I am well versed in this line of books


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The reader was OK...male voices were just so-so. But no complaints as this is a new kine in the business and I want it to be very successful.BUT you will have to market it to the LGBT community who will not know it exists. I was just lucky to find it!!!


    Could you see Too Close to Touch being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Again, as this is a new endeavor for Audible it needs help in selection and promotion

    The monarchy has been dismantled... When a Republican party wins the General Election, their first act in power is to strip the royal family of their assets and titles and send them to live on a housing estate in the Midlands. Exchanging Buckingham Palace for a two-bedroomed semi in Hell Close (as the locals dub it), caviar for boiled eggs, servants for a social worker named Trish, the Queen and her family learn what it means to be poor among the great unwashed.

    V. Farley says: "Fabulous!!"

    In the summer of 1932, Maisie Dobbs' career takes an exciting new turn when she accepts an undercover assignment directed by Scotland Yard's Special Branch and the Secret Service.

But as the young cartographer prepares to return home to Boston, war is declared in Europe,,,,

    In this rich and memorable evocation of the fictional South Riding of Yorkshire are the lives, loves and sorrows of the central characters. There is Sarah Burton, fiery young headmistress; Robert Carne of Maythorpe Hall, a councillor tormented by his own disastrous marriage; Jo Astell, a socialist fighting poverty and his own illness; and Mrs Beddows, the first woman Alderman of the district (like Winifred's own mother).

    Ilana says: "Worth Revisiting"
    "Do not bother!!"
    Overall

    Boring!! I have heard Carole boyd read many many books: this is the only one I could not complete!!! Nothing wrong with reader....story was BORing!!!!
