    This 10th novel in Robyn Carr’s New York Times best-selling series features scruffy-looking ex-Navy gynecologist Aiden Riordan and prickly lawyer Erin Foley. While each just wants to get away from it all for the summer, a bear scare, a bizarre concussion, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity thrust them together and kindle an unlikely romance. Then Aiden’s scheming ex-wife shows up.

    If you could sum up Moonlight Road in three words, what would they be?

    After reading the first 4 books, I accidently read this one next - oops. Each book will stand alone, but there is a flow in the series and you can learn about actions from prior stories not yet read.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not as well spent as other books I have listened to


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I will stay away from 'group' works


    Any additional comments?

    I found the change of voice and writing distracting. I had listened to a previous group work, but found this one more difficult to stay with.

    Story
    (239)

    This title also appears as a novella in the collection “Lord John and the Hand of Devils.” New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon, beloved for her immensely popular Outlander series, crafted this fast-paced tale of intrigue when asked to contribute to an anthology honoring the late, great Ellis Peters. Outlander supporting player Lord John Grey investigates the death of a red-haired man only to become mixed up in the affairs of Sir Francis Dashwood and his notorious Hellfire Club. And as Lord John digs further, his life becomes threatened.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This was a too quick little story. I could follow the back ground only because I have listened to the whole Outlander series


    Has Lord John and the Hellfire Club turned you off from other books in this genre?

    NO


    What three words best describe Jeff Woodman’s voice?

    rich, expressive and clear


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not because it would be too short. If would be fine as a segment in another movie.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this story, but it was too short. I am use to longer Diana books and less than 90 minutes barely got the kitchen cleaned.

    New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now this sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel.

    Davina Porter does an absolutily wonderful job of narrating all of the books in this series. I can hear the smails and all of the other wonderful emotions of all of the inhabitants. The accents almost have me starting to add a brogue to my speach patterns. Aye, so enjoyable.

    I read these books many years ago and am emjoying them again.

    Thanks to Diana and Davina for the wonder experiences

    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.

    Story

    What a wonderful listen. The richness of the southern accents and dialetes of Mississippi in the early 60s add a depth to this wonderfully engrossing and heartbreaking story. Junior League society and the Jim Crow laws in place at the time contrast with the human interraction between the college educated journalist 'Skeeter' and the 50 something hired help 'Abaline'. The inhumanity and mistreatment of little white girls and young black men all have a place in this book. Enjoy the journey and appreciate the progress along the road to equality.

  • Fall of Giants: The Century Trilogy, Book 1

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Story

    This book was spell binding. The insight into the lifestyle of the rich and the poor prior to WWI was so enlightening. The background of the actions that lead up to the war and the political actions involved were much more interesting than when I got the same (?) information in school. The subtexts of the class actions, suffragettes, coal mining, Russian revolution - what a lesson on the history of the times.
