    Married off at a tender age to a harsh, older widower, Lydia Gray can't help but feel a measure of relief when an accident claims his life. What happens next, however, is a surprise to everyone: Through an unforeseen fluke, Lydia finds herself the sole recipient of her late husband's fortune. But instead of granting her security, strife ensues as her adult stepchildren battle to regain the inheritance for themselves.

    Old Order Amish Rhoda Byler’s unusual gift and her remarkable abilities to grow herbs and berries have caused many to think her odd. As rumors mount that Rhoda’s "gift" is a detriment to the community, she chooses isolation, spending her time in her fruit garden and on her thriving canning business. Miles away in Harvest Mills, Samuel King struggles to keep his family’s apple orchard profitable. As the eldest son, Samuel, farms with his brothers, the irrepressible Jacob and brash Eli, while his longtime girlfriend, Catherine, remains hopeful that Samuel will marry her when he feels financially stable.

    This is not a bad story but Ms. Cindy Woodsmall takes too long to tell it. I'm into the third book of the series and there is still no conclusion. Usually when someone creates a series each book stands alone at least somewhat!

    A mysterious stranger known as 'The Wolf' leaves an infant with the sisters of Santo Spirito. A tiny silver key hidden in her wrappings is the only clue to the child's identity and so begins a story as intriguing and beautiful as the city of Florence itself. Belinda Alexandra's new novel, Tuscan Rose, is set in Italy during the time of Mussolini. This richly woven tale of passion, love, longing, witchcraft and magic promises to be everything her readers love and more.

    This book went into a lot of gruesome detail at times. It wasn't bad and narrator does an awesome job. I love her accent. It wasn't the worst listen but I would have skipped a lot if I were reading a hard copy.

    I didn't continue listening. I don't like stories about preachers. When this one started talking about him meeting a preacher I had to stop listening. The narrator used "Um" and "a" in the narration that I'm sure were not in the print. It makes the author sound like she doesn't know how to use the English language.

    When Lady Johanna learned that she was a widow, she vowed she would never marry again. Only sixteen, already she possessed a strength of will that impressed all who looked past her golden-haired beauty. Yet when King John demanded that she remarry - and selected a bridegroom for her - it seemed she must acquiesce, until her beloved foster brother suggested she wed his friend, the handsome Scottish warrior Gabriel MacBain.

    This story was OK but it bothered me that she constantly refers to Gabriel as the Archangel. There is only ONE Archangel and if you read your scripture it's not Gabriel, but Michael. Jude vs. 9

When Miss Edi passes away, she leaves Joce all her worldly possessions, including an eighteenth-century house and a letter with clues to a mystery that began in 1941.

    I haven't enjoyed a listen this good in a while. I've enjoyed this author. I read the reviews and it helps a lot. This had a little bit of mystery. A little bit of history. A sweet love story. Not too predictable. The narrator was easy to listen to, also.

    A man with a painful past. A child with a doubtful future. And a shared journey toward healing for both their hearts... It begins on the shaded town square in a sleepy Southern town. A spirited seven-year-old has a brisk business at her lemonade stand. But the little girl’s pretty yellow dress can’t quite hide the ugly scar on her chest. The stranger understands more about it than he wants to admit. And the beat-up bread truck careening around the corner with its radio blaring is about to change the trajectory of both their lives.

    Story

    I wondered when the story was going to begin. Then once it started it was "OK". Not exceptional. The narrator did well. Not my typical kind of story even though I love stories about children. He goes into way too much detail about things that aren't pertinent to the plot or story. Maybe describing his workshop and wood working talent would be interesting to someone interested in that kind of thing. I like wood and wood building but don't need to hear about it in detail. The heart surgeon angle was interesting also but again, too much detail. I won't be buying this author again. I liked his "Chasing Fireflies" better but it wasn't remarkable either.

    If all the young men of England leapt off a cliff, Madeline St. James wouldn't care. Then she'd have peace. Her nightmares of courtship would end, and she'd cozy up with a Psalm in her aunt's quiet sculpture garden. Yet, a chance meeting and a bullet wound change everything, and Madeline must trust the Good Shepherd has led her to the altar to marry a dashing stranger, Lord Devonshire.

    This story was ok. The narrator would pause between every sentence. I thought she fell asleep between chapter - slight exaggeration there! I finished it but it was a slow story anyway and then to have the narrator slow too. I would choose another audible book or buy this in paperback.

    Ex-champion bull-rider-turned-cutting-horse-cowboy Joe Daniels isn't quite sure how he ended up sleeping in a horse trough wearing nothing but his Stetson and cowboy boots. But now he's wide awake, and a citified woman is glaring down at him. His goal? Get rid of her ASAP. The obstacle? Fighting the attraction he feels toward the blond-haired filly with the big, vulnerable eyes. When out-of-work wedding planner Mariah Callahan learns that her estranged father has left her a rundown ranch in Jubilee, she has no choice but to accept it.

    This romance just couldn't seem to happen And after several chapters of waiting for them to finish arguing I got weary of it. There comes a point when the author needs to wrap it up. There can only be so many misunderstandings and conflicts. Otherwise it's really not believable.

    Marjorie Morningstar is a love story. It presents one of the greatest characters in modern fiction: Marjorie, the pretty 17-year-old who left the respectability of New York's Central Park West to join the theater, live in the teeming streets of Greenwich Village, and seek love in the arms of a brilliant, enigmatic writer.

    I didn't get very far on this one. When they constantly refer to Marjorie's parents with "the mother said" or "the father said" I was turned off. Can't they have names??! And so much of different individuals, "said this" or "said that" it was tiresome. Not well written, at all. Don't waste your credits or money on this one.
