    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    Overall

    This is a enjoyable story, flowing easily through out, keeping me involved as the story unfolds. I recommend this book to all. Not only because of length of the book, but because it is entertaining. It drew me in from the beginning and held me engaged to the last sentence. Truly a good strong beginning to a series. Only draw back is the waiting for the next book to come out and Audible to get it :) hopefully that will not be long since the sequel (day 2) will be release the March.

    Story

    This Book was a very good listen. Like the book before it starts slow and I questioned if I had made a mistake, but I stuck with it and the development of the story was great. Kristen introduces us to the undertones of what a man, woman, and child goes through when a divorce hits a family and the difficulties of starting new. New State, new town, new home, and new relationships, and the baggage that all this brings.
    The characters are well developed and even though the story starts "slow" it builds to a great conclusion. I like that the storyline follows from the book before, so that the characters from "The Will" are in this one, creating a community of friends.
    I found I wasn't satisfied with Hollis McCarthy's read all the time in this book. Her characters development was not as smooth as I would have liked, making the main character sound "off"(can't put a finger on it), but I found I had to forgive this edgy feeling and continue.
    Because I "DO NOT " give Spoilers. I will only say this is a book that is worth the credit or money spent. I RECOMMEND this book to all the people that enjoys a good love story about life after divorce.

    After growing up in cheap motels, moving from town to town with her sister and mother, Cheyenne Christensen is grateful to be on her own. She’s grateful, too, for the friends she found once her family settled in California. But she’s troubled by the mystery of her earliest memories, most of which feature a smiling blonde woman. A woman who isn’t her mother. Although Cheyenne has repeatedly asked for explanations, the people who could help aren’t talking.

    This book was great, Brenda Novak is able to write the many dimensions in relationships. It was well worth the listen. Tara Sands does well with the character voice changes, although there was a few threads that were confusing, all in all she did well. The story was a great addition to the Whiskey Creek series. This book made me laugh, and cry. I do recommend this listen and author. It is worth the credit and has a average length.

    Early in her life, Josephine Malone learned the hard way that there was only one person she could love and trust: her grandmother, Lydia Malone. Out of necessity, unconsciously and very successfully, Josephine donned a disguise to keep all others at bay. She led a globetrotting lifestyle on the fringes of the fashion and music elite, but she kept herself distant. While Josephine was trotting the globe, retired boxer Jake Spear was living in the same small town as Lydia.

    When Caroline boarded the plane to Virginia to move across the country for her new job she never expected to be seated next to the hottest guy she'd ever seen. She also never expected he'd be so easy to talk to. She knew he'd never be interested in talking to her if he hadn't been trapped in the seat next to her, but it was a nice way to spend a long plane ride.

    This is a new series for me, but I was disappointed by it. Terri Acuna Thorne read the book with no change of the voice or cadence, so that all the men and one women's voice was always the same. This book seemed extremely amateur to me. I believe This will be my own book by this author.

    The last thing Sid remembered was being enlisted to protect a vulnerable young woman in the coastal town of Sea Haven. Then, as if in some nightmare, he was lost in the swirling currents of the ocean, and sucked deeper into a freezing black eddy. Just as quickly, he was saved - pulled ashore by a beautiful stranger. Her name is Rikki, a sea-urchin diver in Sea Haven. Soon they will be bound by tantalizing secrets, which will engulf them both in a whirlpool of passion and danger.

    Love the Sea Haven series. This second "Families" story is as entertaining as the first "families" story. Due to the inability to remember where or not Angela Brazil narrated the story well, I am unable to pass judgment, but will review in the next book of the series.

    Kara MacAllister thinks she's just an average, small-town preschool teacher until the night a mysterious stranger shows up at her door claiming that she's not only immortal, but the chosen one of a band of powerful shape-shifting males. Lyon steals her away from everything she knows and thrusts her into a world beyond her comprehension, a world filled with magic, nightmares, and perilous danger where Kara discovers an inner strength she never knew she possessed, and a passion in the arms of Lyon beyond anything she ever imagined.

    This whole series is well worth the read, and I liked the way the story of Fay was added. Alley keeping her secrets really hurts, not sharing with friends and family, fighting her demons on her own, truly sucks, it's great though that she has such a great shadow to help. loved the way the author became a part of the stories. Great listen and read, Kristen Ashely Rocks...

Now a little older and wiser, she's ready to return to the Blue Heron Winery, her family's vineyard, to confront the ghosts of her past, and maybe enjoy a glass of red. After all, there's some great scenery there.... Like Levi Cooper, the local police chief - and best friend of her former fiancé. There's a lot about Levi that Faith never noticed, and it's not just those deep green eyes.

    Story

    This is my first Kristan Higgins book and I found it just right. KH writes with great emotion, character development, and sets the stage for the listener to be "With" the story and characters. I laughed out loud and cry silent tears, listening to this story.
    If you need something well developed and light to listen to, this is your book. Amy Rubinate's reading did not distract from the story, she was able to enhance it with her character reading. Although her soft spoken reading sometimes TRIED to distract, the story line was able to keep you inside, feeling and experiencing the conflicts, embarrassments, anger, and desires.
    This is a fun love story, with the hinting of sex. but if you are looking for a story that takes you along with the sexual passions a person can find in other books you will be disappointed.
    I recommend this book, for the light hearted, clean joys, with many passions life throws at each of us. It is an Excellent listen and I will be purchasing many more of Kristan Higgins books.

    The small country of Medalon lies between the vast nation of Karien in the north and the nations of Fardohnya and Hythria in the south. For centuries the Medalonians co-existed peacefully with the Harshini, a magical race that abhors killing. But now they are gone and in their place the Sisters of the Blade rule Medalon from the Citadel. An elite army of Defenders enforces the Sisterhood's oppressive rule. The Harshini and their demons are believed to be extinct and Medalon has an uneasy peace with its northern and southern neighbours.

    I have read Jennifer Fallon's book for many years now and was glad to see Audible start getting them in Audio. The Demon Child "Medalon" is well written and created to intertwine ones own imagination while the story is being read. With that said Imogen Church did a good job with the emotions and characters of the story. I will not give any spoilers. The only reason I am writing this review is to let others know that they will not go wrong down loading this book and the ones that follow. The Demon Child trilogy is a great read as well as a great Listen..

    When history professor Alison Carter became a consultant to the film version of the Wild West legend she’d dedicated her career to researching, she couldn’t possibly have known that she would not only get a front-row seat to a full-blown Hollywood circus but would innocently witness something that would put her life in peril. Nor did she expect that a tall stranger in a cowboy hat would turn the movie — and her world — completely upside down.

    Story

    I chose this book out of NEED. Books by my favorite authors are just not showing up fast enough to keep me entertained, so while out looking for something, I read reviews by others and took the chance. Am I ever glad I did. Although this book does not have a story that carries from one book to the next, it does contain many stories in one. The story of a young boy who has lost his cornerstone in life, a young man dealing with experiences he had while fighting for our freedom, and the addiction he developed when he came home. It also becomes entertaining because of the love that develops with a historian, that has been hired to help with a historical film. Although there are some "sex" scenes, it isn't porno.

    I really enjoyed this book it made me laugh, cry and fear for the characters. The narrators were great creating the atmosphere that was required for each character and circumstance. I highly recommend this book for a great listen.
