    British couple Andrew and Sarah O'Rourke, vacationing on a Nigerian beach in a last-ditch effort to save their faltering marriage, come across Little Bee and her sister, Nigerian refugees fleeing from machete-wielding soldiers intent on clearing the beach. The horrific confrontation that follows changes the lives of everyone involved in unimaginable ways.

    "There is no ending"
    Overall

    I have never been so mad at an author before in my life. The book was interesting but nothing great. The author though decided to end the book at the climax instead of finishing writing it. I don't know if he got bored or just thought it should be the readers job to finish the book. I will not be reading another book by this author.

But not all is peaceful and serene in Chesapeake Shores, with her estranged mother on the scene and her ex-lover on the warpath. Jake Collins has plenty of reasons to want Bree out of his life....

    I have read a few books in this O'Briens series by the author. The books are easy to listen to and you don't have to pay much attention if you are doing something else. However, all the books seem to sound the same. At the end of her books too the author seems to get bored and just ties everything up.

    This isn't the type of book I normally listen to. After the first chapter I sucked right in to the back waters of Mississippi. The characters came to life for me and I found myself thinking about them while I wasn't listening to the book. I hope that anyone listening to this book enjoys it as much as I did. Its a thrilling old fashion murder mystery.

    In the middle of the year, in the middle of her life, Bethanne Hamlin takes a road trip with her daughter Annie, and her former mother-in-law, Ruth. They’re driving to Florida for Ruth’s 50th high school reunion. A long-time widow, Ruth would like to reconnect with Royce, the love of her teenage life. She’s heard he’s alone, too…and, well, she’s curious. Maybe even hopeful. Bethanne herself needs time to reflect, to ponder a decision she has to make. Her ex-husband, Grant – her children’s father – wants to reconcile now that his second marriage has failed.

    Story

    I too rolled my eyes quite a bit during this book. It is stated several times that it takes a big man to admit when he is wrong. No it takes a person willing to take responsibility for their actions to admit when they are wrong. Anyone in touch with reality knows no one is perfect including themselves.

    The storyline over all is good but this book did not linger with me as it did others who wrote reviews. Bethann is really great character and made the book enjoyable. The way the author explained the characters points of view was insightful and interesting at times.

    Happy reading (or rather listening)! :)

    Finally I broke through! I cannot send enough love to Martha Beck for writing this book. It explained to me not only the stage I am (was) in but why I was feeling what I was feeling, and why things seemed way harder then they should be. The tools she offers here are life changing and absolutely amazing.

    If you feel stuck or unsure about where you are going or working extremely hard but not getting anywhere this book will help you!

    This is the first book by this author I have read, I have seen her before on Oprah. I will be reading all the other books by her!

    I hope this book can help you understand the mystery and much as it did me.

    Growing up in a family of political journalists - and daughter of President Reagan’s White House social secretary - Ali Wentworth rebelled against her blue-blood upbringing, embracing Hollywood, motorcycles, even a few wildly inappropriate marriage proposals. Today she is an acclaimed comedic actress and writer, former Oprah regular, wife of political and media star George Stephanopoulos, and a mother who lets her two girls eat cotton candy before bed. Though she’s settled down, her rebellious nature thrives in her comedy and her view of her crazy world.

    Falling for “Maddening Moira” O’Malley was the unexpected highlight of Luke O’Brien’s Dublin holiday. So when she pays a surprise visit to Chesapeake Shores, Luke is thrilled…at first. A fling with this wild Irish rose is one thing, but forever? Maybe someday, but not when he’s totally focused on establishing a business that will prove his mettle to his overachieving family. Given Luke’s reaction, Moira has some soul - searching of her own to do. Scarred by her father’s abandonment, she wonders if Luke, with his playboy past, is truly the family man she longs for. Adding to her dilemma, she’s offered an amazing new job....

    I would have given this book 5 stars but there is a part early on in the book that the author has the main male character stating that marriage should be between a man and woman only. The rest of the book was great and just what I was looking for. I am torn because I would really like to read the other books but I don???t want to support an author who puts her agenda into her character(s) which I am completely against.

    The storyline is great its like a chick flick in a book, without being too mushy or over the top.

    Eight Weeks to Optimum Health focuses all of Andrew Weil's expertise in both conventional and alternative medicine on a practical week-by-week, step-by-step plan, covering diet, exercise, lifestyle, stress, and environment - all of the aspects of daily living that affect health and well-being. And he shows how his program can be tailored to the specific needs of pregnant women, senior citizens, overweight people, and those at risk for cancer, among others.

    Story

    I did really get a lot from this book. He explains why some foods that we hear about aren't good for you. He doesn't just say don't do this or that, he explains what is in certain foods that can harm you and how they harm you. Its your choice then to decide what to put in your body. He also takes all the changes very slow which is a huge key to change in my opinion.

    The reason I think this is better as a paper book is to have the recipes easy to use at your finger tips. I went to a used bookstore and had the book on hand as I listened to it as well in my car.

    In the summer of 1974, a 14-year-old girl in Dolton, Illinois, had a dream - a dream to become an actress. But it was a long way from the South Side of Chicago to Hollywood, and it didn’t help that she’d recently dropped out of the school play, The Ugly Duckling, or that the Hollywood casting directors she wrote to replied that "professional training was a requirement". But the funny thing is, it all came true....

She explains her mistakes in a very intelligent no holds barred way. I was rooting for her the whole time. If you even kinda like her you will love her and this book.

    The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them all they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it - from garden seeds to Scripture - is calamitously transformed on African soil.

    I agree with the other reviews, the book overall is great. The narrator on the other hand is reading as fast as she can and makes it very hard to listen to or to keep track of what is going on. I would suggest listening to a sample first to see if you can tolerant the narrators style.
