    New York Times best-selling author Jennifer Chiaverini has charmed countless readers with her heartwarming Elm Creek Quilts novels. Like the other delightful entries in the series, Circle of Quilters offers an engaging story, endearing characters, and fascinating bits of quilting lore.

    Cathy says: "Extremely Entertaining"
    "Rave - Elm Creek Quilts"
    Overall

    Outstanding! This is almost like 6 different short stories in one book. Each chapter was like a mini book giving the reader a glimpse into the life of various quilters and the paths that led them there. I'm also a quilter so found the book particuliarly entertaining, possibly one of the best I have listened to all year. You won't be disappointed.

  • The Loved Dog: The Playful, Nonaggressive Way to Teach Your Dog Good Behavior

    More than 15 years ago, Tamar Geller began her career as a dog trainer by observing a scientific study of wolves in the wild. She realized that the socialization and parenting techniques they used to raise their cubs were rooted in bonding, communication, and play: not in aggression, dominance, or punishment. If people used these techniques when training their dogs, she realized, there would be no need for prong collars, choke chains, or any kind of physical or verbal aggression.

    Leslie says: "Maybe better read but a terrible listen"
    "It's OK to love your dog"
    Overall

    Well, I enjoyed this book. I bought it expecting to learn more about Tamar's methods and I wasn't disappointed. I'm a dog lover and felt like I had finally found someone who shared my beliefs. You see, I'm a softee at heart and always shower my dogs with love and hugs, praise and treats, and they've responded beautifully. I have happy and well behaved dogs with very few problems. If you want another feel good book about loving your dog, get John O'Hurley's "It's OK To Miss The Bed On The First Jump". These are books for people who adore their dogs and recognize them for the abundance of love and playfullness they bring into a home. Throw away the prong collars, forget about endless walks until you're both ready to drop.

    THE LOVED DOG. What a great title. If you have one, you'll know it.

    Private Investigator Regan Reilly and her husband, Jack, head of the Major Case Squad in New York City, have just gotten hitched! They've headed to Hennessey Castle, a romantic spot in western Ireland, to escape the world and the criminals they deal with daily. But their getaway is anything but relaxing!

    Typical Higgins-Clark style. Short chapters, predictible outcome, and a casual writing style that's easy to follow. It's one of those books where you can miss a few words and still keep up.

    America's favorite bounty hunter, Stephanie Plum, is back in her twelfth best seller and sure to win more fans than ever before. Trenton, New Jersey's premier troublemaker is once again struggling with her tangled love life, her chaotic family, and her gift for destroying every car she drives. Not to mention her attempts to bring in the sometimes scary bail jumpers of Trenton and the sudden appearance of a mysterious female stalker, who turns out to have a close connection to Ranger.

    The visual image of some characters was way over the top and had me giggling, it was too much fun! But overall, the book is so-so at best.

    Martha's Vineyard has been home to Victoria Trumbull for most of her 92 years. Its magic, history, and picture-perfect calm are part of her very being. But one evening, Victoria hears something that doesn't quite belong: a scream followed by a splash and a sound of a car speeding away. She investigates and discovers a body on the outgoing tide.

    Marjorie says: "Very disappointed"
    "Painfully boring"
    Overall

    I have to agree. It took me weeks to get through this book, and only if I had nothing else to listen to.

    Overall

    If you're not afraid of looks and pointing as you laugh hysterically while driving, this is a book for you! For 3 straight days I arrived at work with the biggest smile on my face. There's something about those furry little faces and wet noses that turn professional people into babbling idiots.

    I have always appreciated my dogs for the wonderful creatures they are but I wasn't prepared for the way this book would expand on those feelings. In a positive, feel good fashion, this book is an experience in life from our dogs perspective.... similar to the saying "Don't sweat the small stuff".

    Cate Fante is strong and smart, but when she gets appointed a federal judge, even she wonders if she can do the job justice. She's in her 30s, and she feels like she's joining the world's most exclusive retirement village. But Cate keeps her doubts a secret. And, as it happens, much else. For she leads a dark, double life that she hides from everyone.

    Babs says: "Blonde of little brain"
    "Big Yawn..."
    Overall

    I was glad when this book was over. This was my first Barbara Rosenblat and I almost didn't finish it. Strong female leads are my favorite but I couldn't comprehend a judge who picked up nasty men, in nasty bars, and went to nasty motels for raw, hard sex. Well.... maybe I could but, the rest of the plot was weak and improbable. Thumbs down..... way down.
