    Isabella, Mary, and Lauren are going to be bridesmaids in Kristi's wedding. On Sunday after Sunday, at bridal shower after bridal shower, they coo over toasters, eat tiny sandwiches, and drink mimosas. They're all happy for Kristi, but they do have the ups and downs of their own lives to cope with. Isabella is working at a mailing-list company, where she's extremely successful, and wildly unhappy. Mary is in love with a man who may never love any woman as much as he loves his mother. And Lauren, a waitress at a midtown bar, finds herself drawn to a man she's pretty sure she hates.

    Overall

    This book fell very short of the buildup. I'm not sure what I'd think if I'd read it instead of listened to it. The reader doesn't do a very good job of distinguishing between character's voices so I felt confused constantly. It wasn't a terrible book but it was boring and the ending left me wanting. I wasn't impressed. It was a waste of a credit.

    Little else in life is as dangerous as fire jumping. Flying past towering pillars of smoke, parachuting down to the edge of an all-consuming blaze, shoveling and sawing for hours upon hours, days at a time, all to hold the line and push back against the raw power of Mother Nature. But there’s also little else as thrilling - at least to Rowan Tripp. The Missoula smoke jumpers are one of the most exclusive firefighting squads in the nation, and the job is in Rowan’s blood: her father is a legend in the field. She’s been fighting fires since her eighteenth birthday.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Chasing Fire to be better than the print version?

    I don't know, I haven't read the print version


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked most of the characters except the main one. She was childish and hot-tempered and seemed immature for where she has gotten in life. I've known a lot of fire fighters and was surprised at her behavior. I was appalled at her incredible immaturity regarding her dad's relationship. I still liked it overall but if you don't want to hear a lot of detail about firefighting, you won't like it.

    I really liked Gull :)


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

    I liked the narrator a lot, actually. She did a good job of distinguishing between voices, she didn't do the overly emotional whining that sometimes narrators do that ruins a story for me.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really.

    Tall and thin, twenty-eight-year-old Bronwyn Palmer has become positively gaunt, a ghost of her former self. That self was - and still is - the wife of a rich, handsome executive with an ocean-view house and his own security staff. It was in that house, two years ago, that Bryce Palmer learned Bronwyn was pregnant with their first child. But Bryce’s rage over his impending fatherhood touched off a chain reaction of emotional and physical traumas that wounded them both.

    Would you try another book from Natasha Anders and/or Justine Eyre?

    Yes to both but I'd make sure the narrator was narrating a book that her accent fits. Perhaps a regency book or something where it is obvious that someone is foreign.

    I find it very wearing when the H and h continue to misunderstand each other for most of the book and act like young children.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm not sure.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I can't stand the way she says things like "heppy" aka "happy" and numerous other words. If I had expected an accent this strong because the person was foreign, I could like it better but it detracted for me.


    What character would you cut from A Husband's Regret?

    None

    What did you like best about Under the Mistletoe with Me? What did you like least?

    Kind of sweet, short book that addresses something that is a real issue for new parents


    Would you be willing to try another book from Kristen Proby? Why or why not?

    Sure.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her male voices made me cringe every time. I had no problem with the way she portrayed women but the men, ugh.
