    Laurel Scanlon has the gift of sight, an ability passed down to the eldest daughter of each generation. It is this gift - curse, perhaps - drove her own mother mad and has left Laurel unwilling to trust in love...except in her dreams. Anxious for a new beginning, she decides to retreat to Mimosa Grove, an old estate outside Bayou Jean, Louisiana. Mimosa Grove belongs to Laurel now, bequeathed by her maternal grandmother. Laurel feels the history and tragedy here, and she senses something...unfinished.

    What a pleasant surprise! This being my first Dinah McCall book, I knew the narration would at least be enjoyable with my favorite narrator, but what a gripping story it turned out to be!
    I would love to see this as a series with Laurel and Justin helping authorities "solve, save and rescue" with her clairvoyance and his 'connection' to her, his soul mate.
    I hope a sequel is in the works, with the phenomenal team of McCall and Plummer!

    If you could sum up Lead Me Home in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, sexy, heartwarming


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lead Me Home?

    There were many memorable and fun moments....I enjoyed the entire book, but I loved the scene with Lester handling the runaway Houdini under Matthew's guidance, and his triumph and eventual acceptance with his peers.


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

    Savannah Richards is my favorite narrator because she makes the stories come to life with her amazing character voice range and the wonderful emotions that she instills in them. She is the best....especially with romances.So ANY book that she narrates is always better than the print version. It's hard to listen to other narrators after listening to her. This was my first of the series....I don't know if the others will be as enjoyable without her narration.


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

    No extreme reaction....but it did put a smile on my face several times.


    Any additional comments?

    The light romances are not my usual genre, but I started trying them when I wanted a light story to listen to while working around the house. This is one of the most enjoyable ones that I've listened to. I found myself just sitting and listening to it instead of using it for entertainment while I worked.

    Shadow Ochoa is lying low in the Kansas Territory, waiting for his fellow Texas Rangers—the Hell's Eight brotherhood—to clear his name. That is, until he's unjustly strung up for horse thieving...and pretty Fei Yen intervenes. Invoking a seldomused law, the exotic lady prospector claims Shadow as her husband and rides off with the bridegroom shackled to her buckboard.

    I tried the Hell's Eight series, but after the third one, decided i wasn't going to continue. I don't mind steamy, erotic sex scenes, but the obsession with anal sex turned me off.
    But when I saw that one of my favorite narrators was reading this one, I couldn't resist and tried it. I'm so glad I did, because it was the most enjoyable one yet.

    It was one of Eve Dallas’s earliest takedowns, back in her uniform days. A monster named Isaac McQueen had been abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. Thanks to Eve, he wound up where he belonged, removed from civilized society in Rikers. But he’s not behind bars anymore. After his escape, McQueen has two things in mind. One is to take up where he left off, preying on the young and innocent - when necessary, with the help of a female partner all too willing to be manipulated and to aid and abet his crimes.

    I have every "In Death" book in audio and I love every one of them. Always a great listen. There can't be enough said for Susan Ericksen's performance. Her voice range for various characters is nothing short of amazing. Even her sultry voice of Roarke makes you want to swoon. Eve Dallas and Susan Ericksen make for a very commanding team!

The Maryland town her father built has too many sad memories and Abby too few spare moments, thanks to her demanding Wall Street career, the crumbling of her marriage, and her energetic twin daughters. Then one panicked phone call from her youngest sister brings her racing back home to protect Jess’s dream of renovating the charming Inn at Eagle Point....

    This is my first Sherryl Woods novel and I love it. I have listened to Christina Traister in other novels and enjoyed her performance, but this one is annoying because it sounds like she has a frog in her throat and needs to clear it. It isn't obvious in some of her character voices, but most of them are 'gravely.' It's annoying, but the story is a delight.

    Dr. Ellie Sullivan has just completed her residency at a large urban hospital. While jogging in a park nearby, she witnesses the shooting of an FBI agent in pursuit of wanted criminals, a couple identified as the Landrys. The only person to see the shooter’s face, Ellie is suddenly at the center of a criminal investigation. Agent Max Daniels takes over the Landry case. A no-nonsense lawman, he’s definitely not the ideal man that Ellie has always imagined, yet she’s attracted to him in a way she can’t explain. Max vows to be Ellie’s shadow until the trial, and it isn’t long before sparks fly....

    I have never read Julie Garwood, just because her genre is mostly historical romance, from what I've seen. But this summary appealed to me and I'm really enjoying it! I've also discovered a new narrator that I like. A good book can be ruined by a bad narrator, but Christina Traister does an excellent job. I hope this team will be doing more like this one!

    In RITA Award-winning, New York Times best-selling author Robyn Carr’s Temptation Ridge, two lonely hearts are surprised by love while visiting the close-knit mountain community of Virgin River. Shelby, a sheltered and idealistic 25-year-old, doesn’t want to fall for a man like Luke. And 38-year-old Luke, a battle-hardened Blackhawk pilot, fears being hurt by a young lady like Shelby.

    LeftyMom says: "The best!!"
    "Another great Virgin River installment!"
    Overall

    After reading Virgin River, I couldn't wait to start Shelter Mountain, and now I am totally hooked on the series. They keep getting better, and I feel like the characters are old friends and I'm growing with them. But what I am most impressed with, is Therese Plummer's performances. Her ability to alter her voice to very distinct female and male characters is amazing. But not only that...she puts so much emotion into her characters that I have found myself reaching for tissues to dab up the tears! The series is great, and so is the narrator.

    Lori had always planned to get out of tiny Tumble Creek, Colorado, but when her late dad left her his beloved auto body shop, she'd stayed. Now, according to her crazy best friend, Molly, what Lori needs is some excitement, in the form of hot, no-strings-attached sex...and lots of it.

    Stephanie says: "HOT, SEXY, EXCITING."
    "Third one's the charm"
    Overall

    I read the third one first because I like the narrator, and decided to try the previous ones in this series. After listening to the second one, I know I won't be listening to the first...the narrator makes all the difference in the world. The storyline was just as fun, but the ho-hum narration isn't as enjoyable to listen to.

    Clare Fergusson, St. Alban's new priest, fits like a square peg in the conservative Episcopal parish at Miller's Kill, New York. She is not just a "lady"; she's a tough ex-Army chopper pilot, and nobody's fool. Then a newborn infant left at the church door brings her together with the town's police chief, Russ Van Alstyne, who's also ex-Army and a cynical good shepherd for the stray sheep of his hometown.

    Melissa says: "An excellent series for adult readers"
    "My favorite series begins here"
    Overall

    After reading the entire series, I am now listening to them. Suzanne Toren is spot-on with the voices and I am enjoying them even more with her excellent narration. In the Bleak Midwinter introduces Russ and Clare and by the end of the book (which is so complete with strong characters, a solid mystery and heartwarming humor) you can't wait to start the next one. Clare's military background enables her to hold her own when confronted with danger,changing Russ' initial annoyance with her, to admiration. You'll be rooting for them all the way.
    Hopefully, audible.com with offer all of them.

    After a rough childhood with a mother who liked her men in prison-jumpsuit orange, Jane changed her name, her look and her taste for bad boys. So why is she lusting for William Chase with his tattoo-covered biceps and steel-toed boots? The man blows things up for a living!

    I had never read Victoria Dahl, but Savannah Richards is one of my favorite narrators, so I tried "Lead Me On." It has a decent storyline with a combination of humor, seriousness and very steamy romance. Good fun read.
