    Young love — that was what Nadine and Hayden had. The kind of love that captures the soul and never dies. That is, until Hayden’s father swindled Nadine’s family, and they didn’t see each other for thirteen years. When his father suddenly dies, Hayden returns home to the family’s lakeside mansion — and to his first love. But Nadine and her two young sons aren’t quite ready to trust again. Soon Hayden is left trying to work through mistrust and misinformation to gain the love of the girl no amount of money could make him forget….

    What did you like best about Confessions? What did you like least?

    Confessions was a nice light story to listen to while doing chores. It's a little dated (no reference to cell phones, everyone has oldfashioned answering machines). There's also some discontinuity between the stories - at least as far as I can remember. In the second story, between Ben and Carly, Kevin's son is featured. However, in the first story, between Hayden and Nadine, there is no mention of Kevin having a son.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Lisa Jackson? Why or why not?

    Maybe. The stories didn't suck me in. It was a decent story, not bad, just not terribly gripping.


    What three words best describe Kate Rudd’s voice?

    Stilted, Jennifer Grey. Kate Rudd has a tendency to read word's very formally, without rounding off Ts and Ds, for example. I'd compare it to a square wheel rolling. When she is reading any emotion, I keep hearing Jennifer Grey's Baby (Dirty Dancing) character begging Johnny or her father. Most of the time, these two items weren't distracting but then her pronunciation or inflection would pull me out of the story.
