    When it comes to men, Megan Murphy has an aversion to "I do". Then she meets irresistible pediatrician Pat Hunter. Add in a cozy colonial cottage, the world's biggest turkey, two hopeful families, and a skirt-chomping rabbit, and you've got a feast of fabulous fun!

    Story

    To describe this book as light reading is inadequate...it's so light it's downright frothy. I purchased this title 3 years ago because I enjoy reading seasonal books and was looking for something Thanksgiving-themed. As a previous reviewer wrote, the dialogue is definitely cheesy. It's also filled with tired clich├ęs and characters speaking to each other in a manner found only in a high school writing course. Still, I've listened to it for 3 Thanksgiving seasons in a row...why? Because when Evanovich writes as the narrator rather than her characters, she provides vivid and inviting descriptions of Colonial Williamsburg, so charming and appealing you feel as if you were there, or at least you wish you were. It makes wading through all the cheese worth it.

    A new volume of exciting stories from 19th- and 20th-century American and British masters and mistresses of the art of story-telling, read by award-winning narrators.

    Story

    I have had Volume 1 of this collection for some time and enjoy listening to it each Halloween. I was very much looking forward to adding this book to my October listening tradition, however, I'm not sure that I will keep it in my Halloween book rotation. I have to admit that I am a little disappointed in the production value of Volume 2. In Volume 1 each story was separated by an appropriately spooky and brief musical interlude which allowed an opportunity to reflect on the previous story and prepare for the mystery and suspense of the upcoming piece. Unfortunately, the stories in Volume 2 jump awkwardly from one into the other without even a momentary pause. This is very disconcerting and detracts from the listening enjoyment. If you're trying to decide between the two volumes, spend your money or credits on Volume 1.

    Story

    I first owned this title several years ago on cassette. I loved listening to it every holiday season, but no longer had a cassette player in my car. I was thrilled to find it on Audible.com and immediately downloaded it. Unfortunately, the beautifully written and read stories suffer from the terrible audio quality. The voices of the readers, among them...Linda Purl, Efram Zimbalist, Jamie Farr and the wonderful singer Melissa Manchester, sound muffled and murky, really distracting from what should be a fun listening experience.
