Valentine's dreams are dashed when Gram announces that Alfred, "the prince", Valentine's only brother and nemesis, has been named her partner at Angelini Shoes.

    Another delightful story. I love Trigiani books. You can picture yourself hangers bag out with her cast of characters and eating or making the food she writes about in her books.

    Story

    I could not stop listening to this book. I loved how the story was told from each characters point of view. A friends daughter went through an abusive marriage and by the grace of god she was able to get out with her daughter after a horrifying night. I could not stop thinking about her as I listened to this story. It just makes you wonder how many women are in similar situations. Please read or listen to this book

    Story

    I love this book as much as I love all of the books Hannah has written. I felt like I was right there as she was describing each and every part of Alaskan life. Her characters are vivid and memorable. This book brought me to tears at least 4 times. It’s just so beautifully written. The narration was also one of the best I’ve listened to with just the right change and inflection with each character.

    Just in time for the Chairman's centennial, the endlessly absorbing sequel to James Kaplan's best-selling Frank: The Voice - finally the definitive biography that Frank Sinatra, justly termed "The Entertainer of the Century", deserves and requires. Like Peter Guralnick on Elvis, Kaplan goes behind the legend to give us the man in full, in his many guises and aspects: peerless singer, (sometimes) powerful actor, business mogul, tireless lover, and associate of the powerful and infamous.

    Nick says: "Amazing, an excellent addition to Frank The Voice."

    I thought this was a very interesting account if Sinatra”s life. I loved hearing about all of the stars and other people in his life. I’ve probably never googled so many times throughout the course of listening to a book. I really enjoyed it even though it was long, it kept my attention all the way to the end

    This is such a good story. I could not stop listening to it. The narrator was perfect and the story captivating. Historical fiction at its best and when I delved into actual events, I was even more engrossed in the story.

    Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon - the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him "the bitter neighbor from hell". But behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness.
