    Professor Gabriel Emerson has embarked on a passionate, yet clandestine affair with his former student Julia Mitchell. Sequestered on a romantic holiday in Italy, he tutors her in the sensual delights of the body and the raptures of sex. But when they return, their happiness is threatened by conspiring students, academic politics, and a jealous ex-lover. When Gabriel is confronted by the university administration, will he succumb to Dante’s fate? Or will he fight to keep Julia, his Beatrice, forever?

    For twenty-five years, the trusted family doctor in a small Wyoming town had been raping and molesting the women and children who most relied on him. Mostly Mormons, the naive victims sometimes realized on their wedding nights the truth about what had happened in Dr. Story's office.

    Story

    This was a very emotional listening experience. Dr. Story, a physician and sexual predator, abuses his patients for years and it is a TRUE story. Though very hard to listen at times, I was inspired by the brave women who ultimately persevered in holding him accountable and sending him to prison....

    A serial killer on the loose, a woman being stalked, and a homicide detective who must find the connection between the two before she becomes his next victim. He collects women. He imprisons them, plays with them, tortures them until they bore him. Then he removes a souvenir. They call him the Sandman.

    The Sandman, a vicious serial killer, who because of all of the twists and turns made it almost impossible for the listener to identify. Though quite graphic and sometimes hard to listen to, I thouroughly enjoyed this audiobook. Two strong main characters, very well developed and likable~interesting that Megan and Detective Thomas did not even meet until the second half of the story. Some romance (not too much) and wonderfully narrated by Teri Schnaubelt. Highly recommended...

    Jack and Pamela Crittendon have hit the breaking point. After months out of work as a reporter, Jack is playing Mr. Mom and working part-time at Festival Arena with his survivalist friend Brian Shakespeare. Meanwhile, Pamela has gone back to work full-time while eight months pregnant. Having her recently widowed mother on hand isn't making matters any easier.

    Story

    Frightening but very interesting story about a terrorist attack in Columbus, Ohio (The Heartland of America). Senator Sterling, a presidential candidate, is the main target but a large gathering of people are put at risk by the jihadists. The inclusion of Everett Lester (ROCK STAR CHRONICLES) and his family was fascinating. Jack Crittendon, his wife, and her mother were my favorite characters. Pam (wife) was in such a horrible situation and Margaret (her mother) was just wonderful. The action was nonstop, the narration by Troy Klein very good, and the ending quite surprising.

    Jane and Caleb are such wonderful characters. I thoroughly enjoyed the continuation of their story~as in the first book, I laughed (example: Dr. Oz) and I cried. Such a sweet love story, great narration, and a satisfying ending. Hoping there will be more books in this series.

    What is it about guys with guitars in their hands that makes them so irresistible, even when they are obviously self-centered jerks? If Abby and Maggie could answer that question, maybe they could finally get over Nathaniel. There's just something about him when he picks up his guitar and gets behind the microphone, something that makes sensible women act like teenyboppers instead of rational, self-respecting adults.

    Cannot think of another character I have despised more than Nathaniel~he is an alcoholic, self centered, and completely thoughtless. Maggie, IMHO, was not much better. However, I absolutely loved Abby and hoped for a wonderful outcome for her~she was so kind and wise beyond her years. Well written story, well drawn characters, enjoyable narration, interesting listen, neatly wrapped up at the end.

    Reluctant lawyer, Jamie Quinn, still reeling from the death of her mother, is pulled into a game of deception, jealousy, and vengeance when her cousin, Adam, is wrongfully accused of murder. It's up to Jamie to find the real murderer before it's too late. It doesn't help that the victim is a former rock star with more enemies than friends, or that Adam confessed to a murder he didn't commit.

    Bygie Hudson's isolated life as an artist was perfect...except for her husband. Her seclusion is shattered when the police arrive to tell her there has been an accident. The man she'd been married to for 15 years, and considered divorcing for 14, is dead...and they believe she may be behind it. As she fights to clear her name, she learns her husband has been selling far more than cars through their successful dealership, and the corruption is linked to a prominent judge....

    Very interesting mystery/thriller with many twists and turns. All of the characters were very well developed~the good, the bad, and even Moose. The evolution of the relationship of Bigie and Tom was amazing~especially after she "got a backbone". Emily Berisford's narration is just wonderful. Highly recommend!

    Meet Jane and Austen. First there's Jane - an impractical, starry-eyed wedding planner; if love can't match what she's read in a book, she doesn't want it. And then there's Austen - a pragmatic, logical-to-a-fault financial consultant; even if he were interested in someone, he wouldn't know. The two have one thing in common: they can't leave each other alone.

    My Father's Gardens is the story of a young girl who comes of age in two languages, and on two shores, between warring parents and rules that change depending on the landscape and the proximity of her mother.

    Story

    Fascinating, well written, and beautiful true story of a girl torn between the love of two countries~Israel and America. I enjoyed the tale but it also made me very sad. It is hard enough to grow up in one country~I cannot imagine trying to constantly juggle the two very different cultures. Ms. Levy's situation was exacerbated by the troubled marriage of her parents. Being a teenager in Tel Aviv, then a teenager in America, and a soldier in the IDF had to create unbelievable confusion of identity. A young lady wishing to trade her "see saw" life for a stable one. Expertly narrated by Toni Orans. Highly recommend.
