    When their last outgoing flight is cancelled, Ben finds a charter plane that can take him around the storm and drop him in Denver to catch a connection. And when the pilot says the single-engine prop plane can fit one more, if barely, Ben offers the seat to Ashley, knowing that she needs to get home just as urgently. And then the unthinkable happens. The pilot has a heart attack, and the plane crashes into one of the largest stretches of harsh and remote land in the United States.

    I usually listen to audio books when I walk and jog, but I couldn't put this away. I loved, loved, loved this story. The blend of humor and tenderness was perfect and I wanted to know these characters, to spend time with them. The narrator's voice was perfect, never distracting, he really enhanced the story. There was no cliffhanger ending, it satisfied, but I wish I could visit these people again... that's a great book for me. I'll definitely listen to more from this author.

    In a secluded corner of Hope Beach, one woman must decipher a stranger’s memories...before they cost her everything. Elin Summerall was one of the lucky ones. Not only did she get a heart transplant, but the donor was a perfect fit. A miraculously perfect fit. But when Elin begins having violent flashbacks - and vivid dreams of being strangled - she realizes that she has been the recipient of more than just a new heart. Elin is remembering her donor's murder.

    What would have made Seagrass Pier better?

    A massive edit and a significant rewrite! This book does not even seem like a Colleen Coble book.


    What could Colleen Coble have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Stop introducing more and more characters. Stop with the weird characters. Go back and reread the beginning of the story. Good grief. Train wreck of unbelievable background for the characters that never improves. The entire book seems like someone hijacked her usual writing style and quality.


    What didn’t you like about Devon O'Day’s performance?

    It sounded contrived. But seriously, I'm just not sure it could have sounded much better given the horrible material.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Seagrass Pier?

    Fully half the book. And at least half the characters. It would begin with all the ridiculous thoughts of Ellen that we "hear". I wanted to scream and wouldn't have finished, but I spent the money and kept hoping it would get better.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This books is for you if you want a maudlin, long drawn out story that attempts to stick a knife into your chest and twist the blade just to get a reaction out of you. The description is WAY lacking. I would say this is a spoiler alert, but the book needs spoiling... The description sounds as if she goes in search of her beloved husband and who knows what happens, but certainly it doesn't imply hours of introspective blah, blah, blah mingled with the knife jab (read other woman) mingled with more hours of introspective blah, blah, blah mingled with a twist of the knife (baby from jerk husband's indiscretion) and on and on and on. I kept waiting for it to get "inspiring" or anything positive. And it never, ever did. If you want a similar story only one that actually inspires and yes, has an upbeat ending, try Charles Martin's "The Mountain Between Us".On a positive note, the performance is very well done. The story is just awful, depressing and way too much like a tear jerker that works to hard to make you cry for the sake of the tears. So annoying. With a better description I wouldn't have wasted my money. I will look for other books read by the two narrators.


    Has Far From Here turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but definitely from other books by this author.


    Have you listened to any of Jennifer Ikeda and Laurie Birmingham ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not that I remember, but I would definitely try to find something interesting by either of them. They were the ONE redeeming part of this audiobook!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Far From Here?

    Oh dear. The entire book. The story was just plain horrible. Please put a more thorough description in... mention the "other woman" angle and the whole "devastating betrayal". Be fair; I would NEVER have bought this if those two phrases had found their way into the description.

    Every Christmas, three lovable angels visit Earth. Once a year, Shirley, Goodness and Mercy are allowed to intervene (or, more accurately, interfere!) in human affairs. Despite their frequent misadventures and the chaos they often cause, things always seem to turn out right.

    I can't even force myself to finish. I wanted a light, fluffy Christmas story to listen to while I did wrapping, baking, etc. , but this is just plain boring. I found myself thinking, "Enough already. Move on. Get to something in this story." I hope it got better, but I had to quit.

    This is the third in the series and all are good, but the first and third are better than the second, in my opinion. Very well read and a good story that keeps you going. A series that I wish could go on and on.

And almost everyone - herself included - has a stone to throw.

    Really fast moving with an interesting and engaging plot/characters.

    This is a great book! It is the 4th in a series, but it stands fine alone. One note though. The ending is a "cliffhanger" leading to the final book in the series. Wish Audible had all of this series and more by this author!
