    Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder, coworkers at The Courier, know the newspaper monitors their office e-mail. But they still spend all day sending each other messages, gossiping about their coworkers, and baring their personal lives like an open book. Jennifer tells Beth everything she can’t seem to tell her husband about her anxieties over starting a family. And Beth tells Jennifer everything, period. Meanwhile, Lincoln O’Neill still can’t believe that it’s his job to monitor other people’s e-mail.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It would have been a great story but we could have done without all the cursing. Totally unnecessary.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Without the cursing it would have been great.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes the story was good but the cursing was frustrating and so unnecessary.

    In her latest enchanting novel, New York Times best-selling author Sarah Addison Allen invites you to a quirky little Southern town with more magic than a full Carolina moon. Here two very different women discover how to find their place in the world - no matter how out of place they feel.

    Anna says: "Lovely"

    Excellent read. Loved and enjoyed every moment of the read. It had everything a good book needs to have to keep the reader entertained.

  • Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal

    Story

    Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes. Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Savior's pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny. But there's no one who loves Josh more (except maybe "Maggie," Mary of Magdalan) and Biff isn't about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight.

    Hope says: "A Worthy Book, indeed"
    "The Lamb"
    Overall

    Probably the most disappointing book I have listen to thus far. The narrator spoke so fast and it felt as though the volume was always on fast speed.

    First comes love, then comes marriage...At least, that was Gracie's plan at the ripe old age of 14. She loved 18-year-old heartthrob Riley with a desperation that made her a town legend. Even now that she's all grown up, the locals in sleepy Los Lobos won't let her forget her youthful crush. And how can she, when she's face-to-face with Riley at every turn? The one-time bad boy has come back to town seeking respectability - but the sparks that fly between them are anything but respectable!

    Susan Mallery has been a great read for me. This book was wonderful and I know you will enjoy listening to it.

    When Noreen takes a buyout and gets dumped by a boyfriend in one fell swoop, she finds herself with nothing but time to notice everything that's missing in her life. Tess is the teacher next door, who thought she'd be spending the summer with her college-bound daughter, but now that daughter isn't speaking to her.

    Denise Wallace says: "Very Good"
    "The Wildwater Walking Club"
    Overall

    It was a good book but I could not stand the person reading the story repeating over and over again when each character spoke "she said", "she said". The voice of the reader at times was annoying as well but the story was good.

    Sarah Harper is driven, pursuing happiness in all the wrong places. She wants to do good and not hurt the people she loves, including her son, Mitchell, and her husband, Joe. But her drive to succeed overrides all else. It's not until she faces a chance encounter with heaven and spends time with the grandmother who prayed for her every day when she was a little girl that she begins to see how her own mother's bitterness created a hole in Sarah's life--a hole she has been trying to overcome for as long as she can remember.

    Dune Road is the story of life in an exclusive beach town after the tourists have left for the summer and the eccentric (and moneyed) community sticks around. Our heroine is a single mom who works for a famous - and famously reclusive - novelist. When she stumbles on a secret that the great man has kept hidden for years, she knows that there are plenty of women in town who would love to get their hands on it - including some who fancy the writer for themselves.

    Tascha says: "Not one of her best..."

    Great read. Loved the book. Loved listening to every one of Jane Green's books so far.

    Jenny Blake has a theory about life: big decisions often don't amount to much, but little decisions sometimes transform everything. Her theory proves true the summer she's 14, when she makes the decision to pick up a penny embedded in asphalt and consequently ends up stopping a robbery, getting a job, and meeting someone who changes her life forever: Miss Shaw.

    Amazing, Amazing, Amazing is all I can say. A beautiful read and I throughly enjoyed every chapter of this excellent book. You have to read it.
