    For Seattle detective Joanne Walker, spring is about new beginnings. She’s mastered her shamanic abilities (mostly), survived a cannibalistic serial killer (barely) and now she’s facing the biggest challenge of her career—attending a dance concert with her sexy boss, Captain Michael Morrison. But when the performance—billed as transformative—actually changes her into a coyote, she and Morrison have bigger things to deal with.

    I am not usually into this kind of book, but I found it interesting and entertaining. I like the characters. The only thing this author does that personally I don't like is spend too much time telling the reader what the character is thinking instead of conversation. I like more conversation. But all and all it was worth the credit and I might listen to another book in the series.

    Single dad and Thunder Point's deputy sheriff "Mac" McCain has worked hard to keep his town safe and his daughter happy. Now he's found his own happiness with Gina James. The longtime friends have always shared the challenges and rewards of raising their adolescent daughters. With an unexpected romance growing between them, they're feeling like teenagers themselves - suddenly they can't get enough of each other. And just when things are really taking off, their lives are suddenly thrown into chaos. When Mac's long-lost ex-wife shows up in town, drama takes on a whole new meaning.

    I use to like Robyn Carr - but every character has to have so much drama, so many feelings, so much hurt, so much discovery. I might as well watch the soaps on TV. Just can't take it any more.

    Carrie Slayton, a big-city society-page columnist, longs to write more serious news stories. So her editor hands her a challenge: She can cover any topic she wants, but only if she first scores the paper an interview with Finn Dalton, the notoriously reclusive author. Living in the remote Alaskan wilderness, Finn has written a mega best-selling memoir about surviving in the wild. But he stubbornly declines to speak to anyone in the press, and no one even knows exactly where he lives. Digging deep into Finn's past, Carrie develops a theory on his whereabouts.

    Some times you are just wanting something a little different - well this isn't it. This is not one of Debbie's best books or middle as far as that is concerned. A few more twist and turns would have helped.

    Nessa Dahl lives a sensible life – until, that is, Jeremiah MacNaught comes to town and enlists her help to investigate a string of bank robberies. Only Mac realizes that beneath Nessa’s no-nonsense exterior exists an outlaw spirit, and between them burns a passion far hotter than a sultry summer night. But when she discovers that the handsome investigator is undercover, lying to her about his identity and convinced she’s involved with the crimes, he’ll learn what thigh high in trouble really means….

    My first Christina Dodd book. I loved the story, the characters and the narrator. Each character is very unique and Natalie Ross is right on with the voices and tempo of the book. I have listened to this book three times and I will listen to it again because it is so enjoyable. Definitely worth the credit.

    Story

    I read all of the other reviews before deciding to finish the series. At first I thought they were wrong, but as the story continued I just lost interest. Too much going on, doesn't stay with the other two books enough and like many others said, it needed more of Valek. Yelena kind of gets on my nerves in this book. Half of the middle of the book should have been skipped, got right to the point of the last part and it would have been better.

    Horse whisperer Shane Stryker is done with passion. This time around, he’s determined to meet someone who will be content with the quiet life of a rancher’s wife. And the fiery, pint-size redhead who dazzles him at the local bar definitely does not fit the bill. Small-town librarian Annabelle Weiss has always seen herself as more of a sweetheart than a siren, so she can’t understand why Shane keeps pushing her away. Shane has formed the totally wrong impression of her but only he can help her.

    Shannon says: "So disappointed!"

    I like Shane and Annabelle. The story is somewhat typical, but put it with the other wonderful Stryker family and of course all of the Fool's Gold family and you have a winner.

    This was a totally different kind of book for me. I wasn't for sure if I would like it but the reviews were good so I went for it. My husband & I both liked it. We like the characters, the plots and the writing style of the author. The book moves with ease and keeps you wanting more. Definately worth the credit. I am going on for the 2nd & 3rd book in this series.

    Is there anything sweeter than a first love? Don't ask Claire Keyes. The 28-year-old piano prodigy has never had a regular boyfriend, much less a real romance. Her music career has left little room for friends or family - which is just part of the reason she hasn't seen the family bakery or her two sisters in years.

    Story

    A good story about sisters trying to reconnect after having very different lives and a lot of misunderstandings. A good give and take and having the courage to look at their life situations, having the courage to see the other person's point of view and yet accept their own life and what it was and what it is now. Oh, don't forget the man and his daughter and the love that develops with one of the sisters. Enjoy, light hearted and enjoyable. Therese Plummer is one of my favorite narrators.
