    When Lisa Jones and her boyfriend George take on the run-down Rocks Hotel, they aim to do for Mariscombe what Rick Stein did for Padstow and set up a chic maritime retreat. But renovating a hotel is about more than stripped wooden floors and Egyptian cotton sheets, particularly when the locals are shifty and unhelpful. Especially Bruno Thorne, the tall, dark and surly owner of the nearby Mariscombe Hotel, where life is one long holiday; for the staff, anyway.

    My second read by Veronica Henry and I was not disappointed. Easy listening and very enjoyable.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Brilliantly written and very well read. Time well spent listening to it. Narrators did a great job.

    Four different women. One common shoe size. And a shared lust for fabulous footwear. In this sparkling novel, the wife of a controlling politician, a debt-ridden eBay addict, an agoraphobic phone sex operator, and a nanny for the family from hell (who barely knows a sole from a heel but who will do anything to get out of the house) meet on Tuesday nights to trade shoes. In the process, they form friendships that will help each of them to triumph over her problems, from secret pasts to blackmail, bankrupcy, and dating.

    Stephanie says: "Chic Lit with character development"

    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. Cute story, great characters, easy read. Definitely read the rest of Beth Harbison's books. They are ALL great. Wish there were more to download!

    Holly Ross often wishes she lived in a simpler time, when the clothes were glamorous, the men debonair, and the endings happy. That said, her career as a fashion historian isn't so bad. With both a wedding and a big promotion coming up, her own happily ever after seems assured. So how, in the space of one day, does it all go wrong? How does she end up homeless, jobless, penniless, and fianc-less? Why is she cruising the Mediterranean in hot pursuit of real estate tycoon Denis King?

    Rachel has inherited her aunt’s estate: a house in the country, kennels, dogs, and more dogs. She claims she’s not a ‘dog’ person. But then she tries to match the abandoned pets with new owners with some unexpected results. As the new owners’ paths cross, and their lives become interwoven, they - along with their dogs - all find themselves learning important lessons about loyalty and unconditional love.

    Karoline says: "Dog lovers all round"

    Overall

    I should have read the previous review. I am not a dog lover (don't mind them, but not obsessed) so found there was just too much dog all around. Dont listen to this one unless you really are a dog lover!

    As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob - knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?

    "Not to be missed!"
    Overall

    I too only bother to write a review when the book warrants it. I read book 1 and listened to book 2 and 3. Fantastic! What an imagination this lady has and everything is just so plausible. Whatever you do, dont miss out on 1 and 2 - read/listen to them first as it would be a shame to miss out on another 2 brilliant books!

    Eadie Boone, an artist and former beauty queen, tackles everything with gusto and flair. But tailing her wayward husband is proving to be an exasperating chore. Nita Broadwell, a good Southern girl from a good Southern family, is jolted out of complacency when she discovers condoms in her husband's shirt pocket. Meanwhile, she is slipping into a steamy romance with a hunky handyman 13 years her junior.

    Took a bit of listening to get into it but once I was, I really enjoyed it. The southern drawl of the reader was somewhat irritating after a while, but not enough to stop.

    When frumpy Jo Hill lands a position as a PA at Gloss magazine, it's the job of her dreams - but it soon becomes a nightmare. As a mousy secretary with a passion for giant bags of Maltesers and comfy shoes, Jo doesn't fit in at the uber-chic office. But she has a plan.
