    On the rolling plains of Lancaster County, PA., Lillian Miller is searching for her grandparents' house...and so much more. After years of neglect and abuse, she's turning to a lifestyle of simplicity among the Amish to find herself. As she discards the distractions of her former life, she befriends the young boy working on her family's farm and his attractive widowed father, Samuel Stoltzfus.

    Story

    I usually like Amish stories, but this was no Witness (The Movie) I knew it wasn't a thriller or an award winner, but I thought it might be a good story. It wasn't. It was so predictable and boring. At least it was on sale.

    This story had me in tears and laughing all in one. I was so happy to finally see Preacher fall in love. The romance between them was so sweet and touching. I loved the way he protected her along with the rest of the town. You will be hooked with this one too.
    I will listen to the entire Virgin River Series. Can't wait for the next one.

    91 year-old Ira Levinson is kept concious after a car wreck by visions of his late wife, Ruth, who recounts stories of their lifetime together. A few miles away, at a local rodeo, Sophia Danko, a senior at Wake Forest, meets a young cowboy named Luke. Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

    Story

    I have not listened to any of Nicholas Sparks books before. I will purchase another one if they are anything like this one. I was sucked into the story with every fiber. The relationship between Sophia and Luke, from beginning to end, was so sweet and I loved Luke's personality. January LaVoy made him so sexy with her narration and did such a great job with Sophia also.
    The other part of this story narrated by Ron McLarty was so sweet and well done.
    The two lives of these people and how they came together was one of those "on the edge of your seat and can't stop listening." I thought I knew but then it just got better and more surprising at the end. The ending was Fantastic!! So well done. LOVED THIS ONE!!

    For Olivia, romantic bliss has never felt as right as it does with Cash. Unpredictable, except when it comes to satisfying her desires, Cash has a well-earned "bad boy" reputation, but he’s turning his life around with the one woman who accepts him for who he is. Until strangers from the past turn Olivia and Cash’s world upside down. What they want is something only Cash can give them. And if he doesn’t deliver, then they’re taking the one thing that Cash values the most. Olivia always knew that in falling for Cash she was likely to get burned. But this new threat is beyond anything she imagined....

    I liked the first book of this Series. The story was very good and this author knows how to write a Sex scene. I love to listen to anything Kate Rudd narrates. Benjamin Darcie is ok but he needs to stay away from doing accents.
    I wasn't crazy about this second episode. It just didn't seem to be very exciting or draw you in. I don't think I'll purchase the 3rd one in this series.

Nestled amongst California's giant redwoods, quaint Virgin River is host to many quirky characters - including bar owner Jack Sheridan, who may be just the man to make Melinda smile again.

    This series of books are so easy to listen too and really just takes you away, which I think that's Robyn Carr's purpose. This story of Mel and Jack is so sweet. As Therese Plummer narrates this, which she is one of the best at all the voices and characters, you feel the heartache, emotions and the love in this story. I love this series and look forward to listening to all 17 books.

    Story

    I couldn't get into the story at all since the Narrator's voice was so "old" sounding. Way too raspy and not in a good way. As you listen to a book, you try to visualize what the characters look like and I couldn't get close as this raspy old voice ruined it for all the women young and old. Trying to visualize the Men in this was even worse. She made them sound like they were all 90 years old and dumb. I Love Robyn Carr books, especially the Virgin River Series, but this one I can't finish. I guess I might have to read it if I want to finish it.

    Ryder is the hardest Montgomery brother to figure out - with a tough-as-nails outside and possibly nothing too soft underneath. He’s surly and unsociable, but when he straps on a tool belt, no woman can resist his sexy swagger. Except, apparently, Hope Beaumont, the innkeeper of his own Inn BoonsBoro.... As the former manager of a D.C. hotel, Hope is used to excitement and glamour, but that doesn’t mean she can’t appreciate the joys of small-town living. She’s where she wants to be - except for in her love life....

    Story

    I wasn't sure I wanted to read all three, but each one was better than the last and the story of Hope and Ryder was fantastic. I figured it was going to be a predictable story and but it was funny with a few twists that keep you laughing and entertained. MacLeod Andrews must have gotten the message at how bad he was in the first Book. He was so much better in this one and didn't make the kids sound so awful. I'm very glad I went ahead and purchased this triology. Great Job Nora Roberts. Some of her books are too empty, but not these.

I love the way the author used the past and present in this and how these women became so close. Get your hanky out, you'll need it in several places. Worth the credit and them some.

    When Ellery moved to New York with her boyfriend, she thought they’d live happily ever after in their small New York apartment. She never thought he’d pack his bags and leave because he “needed space”. With her newfound single status and fear of being alone, Ellery buries herself in her artwork and paintings until one night she helps a mysterious intoxicated stranger get home safely. Little did she know the mysterious stranger is none other than CEO and millionaire Connor Black.

    Story

    When you start reading romance stories, you prepare yourself that it is just a fantasy read. This is exactly that. I did like it a lot and got wrapped up in Ellory and Connor and their whirlwind romance. Sandi Lynn does know how to describe a really Hot Sex scene. WOW!! If you liked 50 Shades of Grey, this is much better and the narrator is also 1000 times better too. I choose to purchase "Forever You" which is the same exact story but it's Connor who tells his side of the romance. I'm almost finished with it and figured I would add my 2 cents saying, you don't really need to buy this 2nd book in the series unless you want to hear his sexy voice, which is pretty good. You do have to get used to his female voice. It's not that great. Onto the 3rd book in the series....
    This series is worth the credits if you want to take yourself into a fantasy world for a while.

Shelby, a sheltered and idealistic 25-year-old, doesn’t want to fall for a man like Luke. And 38-year-old Luke, a battle-hardened Blackhawk pilot, fears being hurt by a young lady like Shelby.

    Robyn Carr did it again. I keep thinking when I read one of her books that it will be too similar to the last one. I loved her Thunder Point series and with every book, it was a good and different story.
    This one hooked me from the start. These books do entertain and keep my interest with every one even though it's easy listening.
    Temptation Ridge is a great listen. I love the characters and storyline in this book. There are a lot of them and surprised she didn't make a series out of this one. It's worth a credit.
    Therese Plummer is fantastic narrator. I can see why she narrates most of ther books.

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    Story

    This was a good story and it could have been an easy listen. MacLeod Andrews was so bad with his imitation of the women in the book and especially the kids. I had to yank out my ear buds when he would imitate the small boys. He made them seem mentally challenged with a disorder or something instead of normal cute boys. I want to listen to the next book in the Triology but I can't buy it since this narrator I know will ruin it. He was ok as he spoke as the men in this story, but the rest is not worth the struggle. Sorry I won't finish the rest of the story.
