    Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish... Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

    What made the experience of listening to Jewels of the Sun the most enjoyable?

    The Narrator was perfect!


    What other book might you compare Jewels of the Sun to and why?

    I have loved all of Nora Roberts' Trilogies. If she is the one who chooses her narrator's, she's has a knack for it :)


    What does Patricia Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Love the Irish accent. I could listen to it for hours. Patricia Daniels does a fantastic job of changing voices when necessary and her inflections are spot on.

    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    What made the experience of listening to The Search the most enjoyable?

    I loved the canine element to this story. It was well written and the narrator, Tanya Eby, was superb! Classicly "Nora Roberts" written. A+++


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. The plot was well written. It was very realistic. Didn't seem too far fetched a story for the listener.


    Have you listened to any of Tanya Eby’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I can't say enough about Tanya Eby...she was brilliant with this book ! I'm searching for books that have her name attached now. This is the first narrator I've searched for (I typically search by author)

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Christian...he is so complicated and so easy to read all at the same time.


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    I liked that she was able to give voices to the different characters, but they weren't so fake sounding that they were unbelievable


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend !!! Will listen again and again.
