    Excellent writer. I've read all her books and they are all different but all extremely well written. I hope she gives us more!

    This is a fantastic author who has real talent. She writes passionate love tales that just flow until - oops - a gratuitous sex scene. Too bad.

    When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

    Today, nine out of 10 Americans live in places at significant risk of earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, terrorism, or other disasters. Tomorrow, some of us will have to make split-second choices to save ourselves and our families. How will we react? What will it feel like? Will we be heroes or victims? Will our upbringing, our gender, our personality - anything we've ever learned, thought, or dreamed of - ultimately matter?

    Wonderful clean romance. So enjoyable. However, the narrator was awful. I rarely complain about narrators but this one really ruined the experience for me. The narrator for Blackmore is far better! Trust me. Read this one. Skip the audio.

    In 1987, Dr. Benjamin Carson gained worldwide recognition for his part in the first successful separation of Siamese twins joined at the back of the head. The extremely complex and delicate operation, five months in the planning and twenty-two hours in the execution, involved a surgical plan that Carson helped initiate. Carson pioneered again in a rare procedure known as hemispherectomy, giving children without hope a second chance at life through a daring operation in which he literally removed one half of their brain.

    Edenbrooke was great but the writing in this novel is superb. It has mystery, symbolism, and tons of passion (no erotica). I've read a lot of 'em, but this one has to be my all time favorites. Trust me, you'll love it!

    Jane Hayes is a seemingly normal young New Yorker, but she has a secret. Her obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, is ruining her love life: no real man can compare. But when a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become realer than she ever could have imagined.

    Miss Cecily Hurston would much rather explore the antiquities of Egypt than the uncharted territory of marriage. But the rules of her father's exclusive academic society forbid her entrance unless she weds one of its members. To clear her ailing father's name of a scandalous rumor, Cecily needs to gain admission into the Egyptian Club-and is willing to marry any old dullard to do it. Lucas Dalton, Duke of Winterson, is anything but dull.

    Not a traditional regency because of the sex scenes. Otherwise a fair story. Narrator was fine. I'd rather read Georgette Heyer type novels with lots of romance and history but no overt sex scenes.

    I'm so glad I went with Rosenblat's narrations from the beginning when I decided to listen to Elizabeth Peters wonderful series. She is the definitive voice for Amelia Peabody as far as I am concerned. She does an amazing range of character voices and her Emerson is beyond incredible.
