As a mother of 4 you have a lot of laundry. Audible books made washing a whole lot nicer. Walking isn't as painful either.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Knight in Shining Armor to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the narration was wonderful.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Knight in Shining Armor?

    When they felt each other. It gave me a sense of belonging.

    When they were together in the present.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I loved this book and it will always be one of my favorite's. When a book can carry you away as though your own life is on pause, you know you've found magic. It was like I dreamt the story.

    Honor Holland has just been unceremoniously rejected by her lifelong crush. And now - a mere three weeks later - Mr. Perfect is engaged to her best friend. But resilient, reliable Honor is going to pick herself up, dust herself off, and get back out there… or she would if dating in Manningsport, New York, population 715, wasn't easier said than done.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The accent that Amy Rubinate trys to do of Tom. It sounds more like
    an Australian than a Brit. and Tom's character was hard for me to develop.
    By the end of the book I wanted to smack Tom if he said "Mate" one more
    time. I would have preferred to read the book.


    Would you recommend The Perfect Match to your friends? Why or why not?

    Only if they haven't read any other KH books. This was predictable after reading so
    many of her books. I recommend KH to many of my friends, however, I'd pass on this
    one. Was frustrated by the time I was done.


    What three words best describe Amy Rubinate’s performance?

    Not good here.


    Do you think The Perfect Match needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. Whatever needed to get wrapped up did and I'm done with Tom.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Kristan Higgans. I look for her books and pre-ordered the next in this series.
    Hope its better than this one.

    With The Look of Love, best-selling author Bella Andre introduces you to a fun and emotional contemporary romance series about the Sullivan family. Because when a Sullivan bad boy falls... he falls hard. And it's forever. Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on her cheek can attest to that. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she's convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her must be too good to be true. Or is he?

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know. I'm a big fan of romance, however, they jumped into sex to soonand spoiled the rest for me. I didn't even finish. They needed to develop an deeper attraction or at least let one build.


    What was most disappointing about Bella Andre’s story?

    Dove into the sex to soon. The attraction needed to build. Everything was to much to soon.


    Have you listened to any of Eva Kaminsky’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I like the narrator very much. She's the reason I hung in there until the middle. She wasn't my problem. The story was.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Look of Love?

    The masterbation scene first. The constant sex talk or thought second. Didn't let your own imagination marinate.


    Any additional comments?

    With all the great reviews of the sequels, I'm going to give the second a try but I hope they write a better story to go with the romance.

    Eveline Armstrong is fiercely loved and protected by her powerful clan, but outsiders consider her "touched." Beautiful, fey, with a level, intent gaze, she doesn't speak. No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty -unprepared for the delights to come.

    What did you love best about Never Seduce a Scot?

    How Evangeline managed to protect herself by pretending
    that an accident did more to her mental stability than her family thought.
    This lead her into a marriage that seemed hopeless until you
    discover the gentle way in which her husband comes to
    know and respect her.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a little different than the usual Scottish storylines.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    She did a fabulous job. Her Scottish brogue was infectious.
    Along with her ability to adjust to men vs woman. That's not easy
    and for me important for the romance story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    This would be a great movie!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely, Therese Plummer is masterful at changing her voice to pull inso many characters and with so many people that have developed overthe years in Virgin River you need a great narrator.The story is perfect for a cold winter, a great imagination, a small cabin surrounded by woods, a handsome military man, and an enormous Christmas tree. What more could a girl ask for?


    What other book might you compare My Kind of Christmas to and why?

    Any of the other wonderful Virgin River Christmas stories.


    What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Diversity of the many characters. Each character seems to have their owntraits that instantly identify them in the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me smile often.


    Any additional comments?

    Do yourself a favor and crawl into bed with Virgin River.
    I would have given it a 4.5 if I could.

    Arranged marriages seldom happen in modern America, so Daisy Devreaux hates her father's ultimatum: marry the humorless man he has picked for her, or go to jail. It's not much of a deal for Alex Markov, the prospective groom, either. He's got no time to indulge an uptown girl. So Alex puts Daisy to work in his traveling circus, expecting the harsh realities will break her. Instead, he finds she's got heart enough for both of them.

    Where does Kiss an Angel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Its among my favorites. Though I have many, this was a little differentand I love SEP. She writes funny like no author I've listened to before.SEP blends emotions beautifully and has me laughing out loud.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Not sure. I don't tend to like circus', however, I have a love foranimals.


    What does Anna Fields bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Anna Fields and SEP are a love match! Anna Fields has the best
    expressions while narrating SEP's stories and SEP's stories bring out the
    best in AF.

    Arranged marriages anyone?


    Any additional comments?

    It took me a while to decide on SEP's book about the circus becauseI really don't like the circus,but I'm so glad I did. Like an Angel is oneof my favorite SEP books now. Though I like them all.

Nor did she know about the theft, but it still makes her an outcast, and she is desperate. Then she meets Gabriel Bonner, who gives her a job. Romantic sparks fly, but love is never easy. Gabriel has a tragic loss of his own, and his family, fearing Rachel's motives, campaigns loudly against her.

    What made the experience of listening to Dream a Little Dream the most enjoyable?

    The whole story. It tied beautifully into the Chicago Stars story line, but told itsown story which was altogether different that the ones before it.


    What other book might you compare Dream a Little Dream to and why?

    It was like two tragedy trains crashed into each otherand developed into a sweet, beautiful, loving, and trusting relationship. Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas and someof Robyn Carr's Virgin River series books are similar to this storyline.


    What does Anna Fields bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has a unique ability to put emotion into the story from botha male and females reactions. The females responses send me intolaughter in unexpected places that I have to be careful where I listen.I find myself laughing out loud in the grocery store, walking in the park,and driving my car. People must think I'm crazy.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Want a good laugh and cry?


    Any additional comments?

    I've just discovered Susan Elizabeth Phillips and I feellike I've found a friend.
