    Barry Laverty, M.B., can barely find the village of Ballybucklebo on a map when he first sets out to seek gainful employment there, but already he knows that there is nowhere he would rather live than in the emerald hills and dales of Northern Ireland. The proud owner of a spanking-new medical degree and little else in the way of worldly possessions, Barry jumps at the chance to secure a position as an assistant in a small rural practice.

    Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose during lunch at one of London’s fanciest restaurants. But when his big question involves a trip abroad, not a trip down the aisle, she’s completely crushed. So when Ben, an old flame, calls her out of the blue and reminds Lottie of their pact to get married if they were both still single at 30, she jumps at the chance. No formal dates - just a quick march to the altar and a honeymoon on Ikonos, the sun-drenched Greek island where they first met years ago. Their family and friends are horrified. Fliss, Lottie’s older sister, knows that Lottie can be impulsive - but surely this is her worst decision yet.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If your life is full of cursing and screaming, well this is for you.
    I loved the previous book "I've got your number" - it should be made into a movie.
    This was a brutal listen and very difficult to control the screaming in the earbuds.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'll be more cautious before I purchase the next.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    yes, too many narrators, too much volume variety.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Wedding Night?

    Cursing and screaming

    Welcome back to the village of Ballybucklebo. Come and say hello again to Dr. O'Reilly's odd-as-two-left-feet patients; his housekeeper, Mrs. "Kinky" Kinkaid; and O'Reilly's pets: Arthur Guinness, the beer-swilling black Lab, and Lady MacBeth, the demonically possessed white cat. And of course, to young Dr. Barry Laverty. After Barry's first month as an assistant to crusty Dr. O'Reilly, he has been offered a permanent spot. But Laverty's excitement is dashed when one of his patients unexpectedly dies.

    This Book 2 done and so I'm on to hear the next book. The writing is so vividly clear, you can see the folks, feel the personal emotions and hunger for more. The narator make is so very real. This is a delightful find - an emerald treasure.

    Young Emma Wagner chafes at the constraints of Bethel colony, an 1850s religious community in Missouri that is determined to remain untainted by the concerns of the world. A passionate and independent thinker, she resents the limitations placed on women, who are expected to serve in quiet submission.

    Todd, the youngest of four children, has a developmental disability that keeps him at home on the farm with his mother and father. One special holiday season, Todd hears an ad on the radio from a shelter looking for temporary homes for their dogs during the holiday week. When Todd's parents at last give in to his pleas for this charitable cause, the family is faced with an entire shelter full of dogs needing homes.

    Gary L. Parks says: "If you love dogs, Christmas and Wisdom..."
    "warms the heart!"

    A sensational story with a top quality narator - I'd recommend this to everyone with a heart that needs a touching story.

    Two bodies, one spear gun, and a murder suspect. But did Morgan Cleary's husband really kill her parents? The brutal double murder has struck fear into peaceful Cape Refuge. Police Chief Cade is unconvinced that his best friend took the lives of Thelma and Wayne Owens. The Owens' halfway house shelters individuals far more questionable than Jonathan Cleary. Now, the villagers are concerned that it may house a murderer who could strike again.

    The story truly holds your attention. Unsolvable up to the end of the reading- a real great mystery.
