    After her father loses the family fortune in an insider-trading scheme, single mom Parker Welles is faced with some hard decisions. First order of business: go to Gideon's Cove, Maine, to sell the only thing she now owns-a decrepit house in need of some serious flipping. When her father's wingman, James Cahill, asks to go with her, she's not thrilled . . . even if he is fairly gorgeous and knows his way around a toolbox.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    yes....no mention of holy rollers whatsoever....it brought down the tone of the whole book...if we have an inner self talking to us we usually dont have such derision for our thoughts....after all its our self conscious thoughts and inner common sense speaking..in her case it was the characters of a book she created that made her a popular author, much to her disgust.VERY damn annoying having the main character talk to them throughout the book...and they talked back!!! She would have sounded so much better without sounding so insane....and what made it worse was that they were characters from a book the main character wrote that was a so called popular seller?? Dont know how the hell why...or even why they made the main character an author...she is a privileged woman reduced to having to fend for herself when her nomadic estranged father traded all her inheritance away and subsequently was sent to jail for his crimes.....hmm it could have had some merit as an interesting plot if it wasnt for the constant rants of insanity...and the loopy dad..


    What was most disappointing about Kristan Higgins’s story?

    see above, stupid holy rollers..(angels on skates) weird...


    What three words best describe Justine Eyre’s performance?

    lovely thanks....a highlight to the story


    Could you see Somebody to Love being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no no no...an hell no...

    She used to make the same mistakes we've all made with men - until she realized that the winning formula to attracting the right guy lay in skills she already had. As a successful saleswoman, Jess has practiced the techniques in promoting a product, finding the right approach, making the pitch, and closing deal after deal. Once she started to apply these same techniques to the dating scene, her love life made a complete 180, and she found herself with more interested men than she knew what to do with.

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

    I have already recommended this book to a friend? Why? Because she is going through some of the examples the author mentions and even though most of it is common sense it always sounds better coming from someone else...I dont want to be the bearer of bad news....plus its better getting advice from someone who is impartial to the situation..great ideas by the way and an intuitive way of putting across the authors views and observations.

    Id highly recommend this book


    What was one of the most memorable moments of You Lost Him at Hello?

    Read this book while driving 9 hours....loved it...made the trip seem a hell of a lot shorter....but no definitive moment stood out above all others sorry..


    Which character – as performed by Julia Farhat – was your favorite?

    all


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

    parts made me laugh...the inner cynic and the knowledge of having been somewhat in those shoes at one time or another...


    Any additional comments?

    where was this book when I needed it?

    Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold-shoulder treatment forever - especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her.... Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes.

    If you could sum up Twice Tempted in three words, what would they be?

    enthralling, exciting and dramatic


    What other book might you compare Twice Tempted to and why?

    other Jeaniene Frost books....love her style and the narrator is fantastic...feel a part of the story


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

    Tavia's voice is so soothing to hear...I love her readings of other books and she can swap between male and female nuances and have you believing what you hear with minimal effort... this one she does justice to like she does to any of the books she narrates.


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

    absorbed at every level....laughed....didnt cry...its a vampire book so....I love the genre..


    Any additional comments?

    more please....and NOW!!

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    it would have been better if the reader, armin, could have not made many obvious atempts to sell/advertise his other books....very boring...at first thought it funny but it didnt take me long to think that Id had enough and find another more entertaining book.....


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    no idea


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Armin Shimerman?

    no idea


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Star Trek, Deep Space Nine?

    didnt get all that far into it to tell
