    Lady Emma Wells-Finch comes to Texas on a mission: she has two weeks to ruin her reputation. The only thing that will save her from losing everything is complete and utter disgrace. World famous playboy-athlete Kenny Traveler has been blackmailed into chauffeuring Lady Emma around. He needs to prove himself completely respectable to get back into his game. And when a gorgeous man who can't afford another scandal meets a hardheaded woman who's determined to cause one, anything can happen...even love.

    After listening to this book, I started searching for another by the the same author. Anna Fields is one of my favorite narrators. I truly enjoyed this book.

    “Hearts are broken,” Lillian Dyson carefully underlined in a book. “Sweet relationships are dead.” But now Lillian herself is dead. Found among the bleeding hearts and lilacs of Clara Morrow's garden in Three Pines, shattering the celebrations of Clara's solo show at the famed Musée in Montreal.

    What did you love best about A Trick of the Light?

    I have enjoyed all of Louise Penny's book, and this one is my favorite. The character development, suspense, humor and wit.

    The narrator brings her wonderful writing to life.

    Any additional comments?

    I was hooked after the first chapter. Julia Franklin did a great job with the narration. I would especially recommend the book to teen girls, mothers of teen girls and anyone who loves horses. The book has many story lines beyond the girl and her horse, though.

    Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

    What did you love best about Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)?

    A very enjoyable book. I have watched Mindy for years on The Office, but had no idea she was a writer, director and now producer.

    Her story is fascinating and made me laugh out loud. I'd recommend it.

    The story of Lilith, born into slavery on a Jamaican sugar plantation at the end of the 18th century. Even at her birth, the slave women around her recognize a dark power that they - and she - will come to both revere and fear. The Night Women, as they call themselves, have long been plotting a slave revolt, and as Lilith comes of age and reveals the extent of her power, they see her as the key to their plans.

    A User says: "read now to understand the past"
    "It's graphic and brutal!"
    Overall

    The book was very well written and narrated. However, the language and brutal violence were very difficult to listen to. I think the message could have been communicated with less brutality. A couple of times, I swore I would stop listening, but stuck it through. A well crafted story, but I can't suggest it to my friends.

    Vatanen, a journalist, is feeling burned out and sick of the city. One summer evening, he and a photographer set out on an assignment, and as they drive through the country, the car hits a young hare. Vatanen leaves the car to save the injured creature, and the grateful animal adopts him. This small incident becomes a turning point in Vatanen’s life as he decides to break free from the world’s constraints.

    Overall

    I loved this book. The narrator does a great job (as he did in The Girl w/ the Dragon Tatoo series).

    The author creates a beautiful narrative and his descriptions put you there with the man and the hare. You remain fully engaged through the tale. Listen and enjoy.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The best book club you’ve never heard of – but will be eager to join, courtesy of a full cast of true characters. January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she's never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb....

    Kent says: "MUCH better than I ever expected! Give it a try!"

    I didn't want to stop listening! Beautifully written and read!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Amazing!"
    Overall

    I have listened to at least 100 audiobooks and this one is in the top five, up there with The Power of One. The narrators did a fabulous job with this amazing novel. I can see why it got so many five star ratings.

    When I finished this book, I immediately looked for another by Alex Berenson. It is a great spy novel that was well researched and held my interest from start to finish.

    The Executive Board of an exclusive men's club meets to talk about 9/11 and finalize a retaliation plan, known by a code name: Wild Fire. That weekend, a member of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force is found dead. It's up to Detective John Corey and his wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield, to unravel a terrifying plot that starts with the Custer Hill Club and ends with American cities locked in the crosshairs of a nuclear device.

    Joseph says: "Good, but the series is getting forced."
    "Loved it"
    Overall

    DeMille is one of my favorite authors and Scott Brick always does a great job with his books. Wildfire didn't disappoint me. His research is why he doesn't pump out 5 books a year. A great listen. I also enjoyed the interview with the author and narrator at the end.
