    Vanessa Fitzwilliam is in dire straits. Her father's death a year ago left her with a crumbling manor and a handful of old retainers relying on her for support. When the Duke of Northbridge sweeps into her life with a surprise proposal, Vanessa is tempted - but the arrogant duke believes her to be something she's not. Hardened by the ravages of war, Northbridge seeks a wife who will provide him with an heir but make no demands on his emotions. The scandalously experienced Vanessa, neither clinging nor innocent, seems the perfect choice. But Northbridge isn't prepared for her reluctance to accept him....

    Story

    I like the story and the author's story, but the narrator needs to find better recording equipment or a better room to record from.

    The audio recording is horrible this narrator's voice is not the problem, wherever or whatever she's recording from the Acoustics is terrible, sounds like an echo in the background, like she's talking on a speaker phone. Would have enjoyed better if the recording was clearer.

    Story

    This story had a good ending, but I think it was a better advertisement for Louisiana for the food and the scenery, more than an actual story line. The narrator was good though. I gave it 3 stars overall for the narrator, otherwise I would have given it 2.

    Most people can relax by an idyllic riverside without fishing a dead body out of the water; Bree MacGowan is not most people. And as luck would have it, it's not just any old corpse she's tripped over this time. It's the late wife of Senator R. Carl Wallace, a paragon of upstanding American citizenship to anyone who looks...unless they look too closely. Which is, of course, exactly what Bree does, and what she finds is definitely more trouble than she bargained for.

    The story was pretty good and so was the narrator, the problem was whatever she recorded on wasn't the best sound, but other than that the story was pretty good.

    Mona Berman is an expert at Happily Ever After - after all, she's a best-selling Romance writer and happy endings are what she does best. So when her husband of 20 years leaves her for somebody 15 years younger, 30 pounds lighter, and French, she's got a lot of adjusting to do, both personally and professionally. Lucky for her she's got three savvy teen daughters, a few good friends, and Ben, the world's sexiest plumber, to help her along the way.

    Kat Porter is a consummate romantic, eager for her chance to find love and commitment. But after her boyfriend of four years, Marc, begins to grow apathetic and sends her calls straight to voicemail one too many times, Kat finally musters the courage to confront her so-called sweetheart, who seems more interested in dodging her than courting her. Though she's no fan of ultimatums, Kat is at the end of her considerable wits, and lobs a massive one his way, completely confident that he'll make the right decision.

    Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Angel Mine to be better than the print version?

    Yes, since the narrator was pretty good.


    What other book might you compare Angel Mine to and why?

    I guess to After Tex, the previous book, but I like After Tex better, I liked Todd better in After Tex, he was more compassionate. He was a jerk most of the book in Angel Mine.


    What does Christina Traister bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Characters' personalities and verbal expressions.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    both.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a pretty good read, it had it's good and bad points, but the ending was great!

    Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he's never made a move. Intent on shaking things up, Olivia puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends - but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Maybe


    What did you like best about this story?

    To be honest the narrator made the story, but the main character was a disappointment, she was way to naive and trusted a stranger, before she would a long time friend, until it was almost too late. The author could have made her actions a little less stupid.


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Character & personality.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, just to get it over with.
