    Marian Caldwell is a 36-year-old television producer, living her dream in New York City. With a fulfilling career and satisfying relationship, she has convinced everyone, including herself, that her life is just as she wants it to be. But one night, Marian answers a knock on the door ... only to find Kirby Rose, an 18-year-old girl with a key to a past that Marian thought she had sealed off forever. From the moment Kirby appears on her doorstep, Marian’s perfectly constructed world - and her very identity - will be shaken to its core.

    Rose Mae Lolley is a fierce and dirty girl, long-suppressed under flowery skirts and bow-trimmed ballet flats. As "Mrs. Ro Grandee" she's trapped in a marriage that's thick with love and sick with abuse. Her true self has been bound in the chains of marital bliss in rural Texas, letting "Ro" make eggs, iron shirts, and take her punches.

    Great read. I love that the author narrated it. Mrs. Jackson never disapoints. She has become one of my favorite authors.

    When Arlene Fleet heads up north for college, she makes three promises to God: She will stop fornicating with every boy who crosses her path; never tell another lie; and never, ever go back to the "fourth rack of hell", her hometown of Possett, Alabama. All she wants from Him is one little miracle: make sure the body is never found.

    What made the experience of listening to Gods in Alabama the most enjoyable?

    Amazing, captivating story. I love "Southern" books.so the setting was great. I enjoyed the relationship dynamic of the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Burr, what a catch!


    Have you listened to any of Catherine Taber’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't get the music incorporated into the audiobook. It felt like I was listening to a really bad radio soap opera from the 30s. The music really took away from the whole experience.

    What made the experience of listening to Dying for Chocolate the most enjoyable?

    The series is great and the characters captivating.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dying for Chocolate?

    Mother-son relationship


    How could the performance have been better?

    I can't stand te narrator. Can't the mute out her swallowing and mouth noises? She also cones across whiny sometimes. Makes me a little crazy- the reason I have requested the rest of the series from the local library to read.


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

    No.

    Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow's only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she'd like. Running all their daylight errands - from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg - gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship - and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

    Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

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

    Often, I get bored with a series by the 5th or 6th book but I can't get enough of Jennifer Estep's characters in the Elemental Assassin Series! Jennifer captures your attention again in By A Thread.


    Which character – as performed by Lauren Fortgang – was your favorite?

    Gin of course!


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

    Gin's wit makes me smile.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "My fav Audible download yet!!!"

    This was such an amazing experience. The book was wonderful and the narrative fantastic. A must for any Audible library!
