    For more than 300 years, Bluff House has sat above Whiskey Beach, guarding its shore - and its secrets. But to Eli Landon, it’s home.… A Boston lawyer, Eli has weathered an intense year of public scrutiny and police investigations after being accused of - but never arrested for - the murder of his soon-to-be-ex wife. He finds sanctuary at Bluff House, even though his beloved grandmother is in Boston recuperating from a nasty fall. Abra Walsh is always there, though.

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

    I don't have a clue.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    I could not even get into the story. The Narrator was terrible. The worst I have listened to and I have 527entries from Audible. I don't think I even made it to the first hour. Very distracting. I love Nora and have read and listened to almost every one of her books. Please find another narrator for the Nora Roberts books.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different narrator.

    As acting mayor, Annika will do anything to revive the economy of the town that's been her refuge ever since her art career imploded and her fiancé walked out. Even if it means crashing an engagement party to talk business with the bride's billionaire father. But the evening starts with a kiss from a gorgeous stranger - and ends with a night in jail. Finn Callahan can't believe his sister is getting married, not after their parents' disastrous track record. And he'd rather be anywhere than working from his family's vacation home. Until he catches a leggy blonde sneaking in the window, and suddenly telecommuting for the season is very appealing.

    What disappointed you about Saved by the Bride?

    Could not even get 1/4 of the way through the book. I think the story was OK but I could not bring myself to listen to the narrator one more minute.

    Instead of saying "I do" to Mr. Irresistible, Lucy Jorik hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle with a rough looking, bad-tempered stranger who couldn't be more foreign to her privileged existence. While the world searches for her, Lucy must search for herself, and she quickly realizes that her customary good manners are no defense against a man who's raised rudeness to an art form. Lucy needs to toughen up - and fast. Her great escape takes her to his rambling beach house on a Great Lakes island. Here, she hopes to find a new direction...and to unlock the secrets of this man who knows so much about her.

    What did you love best about The Great Escape?

    Oh how I miss Anna Fields but Shannon does a very nice job of narrating. As usual, SEP writes an incredible story. SEP's stories are funny and very believable. And this one is no exception. Cannot wait for the next one!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Great Escape?

    There have been more than one and I am not finished with the book.


    What about Shannon Cochran’s performance did you like?

    She did a very good job.


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

    No extreme reaction and it made me laugh and cry.

    Engaged to the charming and seductive Greg Anders, Sara Shaw is happily anticipating her wedding in Edilean, Virginia. The date has been set, the flowers ordered, even her heirloom dress is ready. But just three weeks before the wedding, Greg gets a telephone call during the night and leaves without explanation. Two days later, a man climbs up through a trapdoor in the floor of Sara’s apartment, claiming that he is the brother of her best friend and that he’s moving in. While Mike Newland is indeed telling the truth about his identity, his reason for being there reaches far deeper.

    If you could sum up Scarlet Nights in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, Suspenseful, Heart Warming


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was believable and exciting.


    What didn’t you like about Julia Gibson’s performance?

    All the voices sounded the same a little whiney and weak. Did not show all the strong personalities of Miss Edi, Joc, Luke and especially Tess. I would never again purchase an audible book that was narrated by Julia Gibson.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Jude, Please choose Barbara McCulloh or Davina Porter for all your books,
