    Divorce attorney Harper James can't catch a break. Bad enough that she runs into her ex-hubby, Nick, at her sister's destination wedding, but now, by a cruel twist of fate, she's being forced to make a cross-country road trip with him. And her almost-fiancé back at home is not likely to be sympathetic.

    Can't get enough of the Kristan Higgins/Xe Sands combination. Getting ready to look for the next book to listen to, but I think I may have listened to all of them. Guess I will have to them again again. Great story, great listen.

    I recommend Xe Sands narrates the next Susan Elizabeth Phillips book when it comes to Audible.

    Michelle Cabot has inherited her father's Florida cattle ranch,and a mountain of debt. To make matters worse, a huge chunk of that debt is owed to the neighboring rancher, her nemesis, John Rafferty. Nothing shocks Rafferty more than discovering that the spoiled, pampered rich girl he once despised is painstakingly trying to run the Cabot ranch herself, working the land with desperation - the only thing she has left. He likes this new Michelle and decides to make her his woman.

    Skipped to the end. I wish that the narrator had not tried to do the manly voices--should have just read it. Maybe that's the reason the book didn't have the drama/mystery that most LH's are. Will probably try to return it.

    Ophelia Lambert, 400-year-old vampire princess and college freshman, suddenly finds herself domesticated by humans and forced to suffer the indignities of dorm rooms, communal bathrooms, and a roommate with sticky fingers. As one of the hundreds of undead venturing into postsecondary education, Ophelia has a lot more to learn that just "undead studies" - she has to learn to get along with her fellow vampire classmates and, worst of all, her human ones.

    I believe this is the only one in the Series that I have not already given five stars, although I gave Amanda Ronconi five stars. This story was lacking; still ready to purchase the next one.

    Rochelle Marks is working hard to build a name for herself that has nothing to do with her pinup-girl curves. She's made mistakes in the past, and now she's trying to stop her little sister, Stacy, from making worse ones. Rochelle's done with being nothing more than someone's good time. Even if that someone is the one-night stand who turned her life upside down before vanishing - and who's just arrived in Paradise, Idaho, looking to pick up where they left off.

    This one was not as good as the other two- Did not like Claire Blocking at all for this book. I enjoyed her so much in the Australia series but not this one. Some of the scenes in the book were to unbelievable.

    When Grace Emerson's ex-fiancé starts dating her younger sister, extreme measures are called for. To keep everyone from obsessing about her love life, Grace announces that she's seeing someone. Someone wonderful. Someone handsome. Someone completely made up. Who is this Mr. Right? Someone - exactly unlike her renegade neighbor, Callahan O'Shea. Well, someone with his looks, maybe. His hot body. His knife-sharp sense of humor. His smarts and big heart.

    Being one of the guys isn't all it's cracked up to be. So when journalist Chastity O'Neill returns to her hometown, she decides it's time to start working on some of those feminine wiles. Two tiny problems: one - she's five feet and 11 inches of rock-solid girl power; two - she's cursed with four alpha-male older brothers. While doing a story on local heroes, she meets a hunky doctor, and things start to look up. Now there's only one problem: Trevor Meade, her first love and the one man she's never quite gotten over....

    What a combination, Kristan Higgins writing and Xe Sands narrating (and Amy Rubinate narrating her other books), You can't help but give them 5+ stars, Great story, so realistic. I am waiting for her next book scheduled to be release late December. Whoever makes the decision on the narrator I will be extremely upset if they don't choose Ms. Sands or Ms. Rubinate or both.

    Keep writing Kristan!!!!

    Kyle Houseman believes that he'll never find anyone he could love as much as Olivia Arnold, who's now married to his stepbrother. Not only did he lose her, he's been through one divorce and has no desire to go through another. He's determined to be extra careful about the next woman he gets involved with - which is why he fights his attraction to the beautiful stranger who rents his farmhouse for the Christmas holiday.

    This was a great series. The one thing that would have made it even better been if you had continued with Amy Rubinate as the narrator--why do they change? MM was good also, but I just love AR. This was my second favorite of the entire series, When Lighting Strikes being my favorite. I have listened to WLS many, many times. Winter Wedding next.

    I hate to see the series end.
