    "Response to whole show question"
    Overall

    As a consumer, I agree that the whole show is the prefered format - who wouldn't like to hear everything while out on a walk? But as an employee, I'm sorry to say we can't make all the content available via Audible b/c we have not been given the rights to do so from the other guests/musicians.

    The girl everybody loves to hate has returned to the town she'd sworn to leave behind forever. As the rich, spoiled princess of Parrish, Mississippi, Sugar Beth Carey had broken hearts, ruined friendships, and destroyed reputations. But 15 years have passed, now she's come home, broke, desperate, and too proud to show it.

    Lydia says: "Another winner from Susan Elizabeth Phillips"
    "Good book, fun listen except for male voices"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed listening to this book EXCEPT when the men talked. I had a hard time even thinking the male lead could be considered sexy b/c of the readers slaughtering of male voices. I know it's hard, and she did a nice job differentiating between Suger Beth and Winnie but she kinda ruined the image of the lead for me. Still worth the buy, though.

    Annabelle is tired of being the lone failure in a family of overachievers. She's endured dead-end jobs and a broken engagement. But that's going to change now that she's taken over her late grandmother's matchmaking business. All Annabelle has to do is land the Windy City's hottest bachelor as her client, and she'll be the most sought-after matchmaker in town.

    Daniela says: "Guilty Pleasure"
    "Fun listen"
    Overall

    I thought the reader was pretty good and didn't get too heavy handed and weird when trying to read male voices. A fun modern listen and fun for some escapism.

    Pulitzer Prize-winning Civil War historian James McPherson provides a historic tour through Gettysburg, one of our nation's most visited cities, and the site of the bloodiest and perhaps most consequential battle ever fought by Americans. Listeners will be transported by McPherson's meaningful reflection, historical description, and his intimate stories from his own experiences at Gettysburg.

    William says: "Nice for what it is."
    "A great guide if you know the area"
    Overall

    I started to listen to this before my most recent (2nd) visit, but b/c I didn't have a map and couldn't remember the layout, I quit in frustration. Having spent three days out there, hiking, biking and driving, I'm now greatly enjoying this download. The BOOK would be useful regardless, since you could refer to the map, but unless you have a good sense of the area, the DOWNLOAD could be very frustrating. The reader/author was perfect.
