  • Just Add Water: Hetta Coffey Series, Book 1

    Hetta Coffey is a globe-trotting civil engineer with attitude who is working on coming of age, a little late. Pushing forty and still single, Hetta is the epitome of the "B" word: bold, bossy, brassy, breezy, and brash. After leaving a lifelong swath of failed multinational affairs in her jet stream, it is no wonder Hetta prefers living with her dog, R.J. But old habits die hard, and trolling for triceps is Hetta's hobby....

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    A little juvenile. VERY light reading (listening), no little grey cells wasted on this one.


    Would you recommend Just Add Water to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not.

    Caroline Maxwell would like nothing more than to join her brother, Eddie, and his friend Jack Culhane on their adventures. While Jack and Eddie are off seeing the world, buying up businesses and building wildly successful careers, Caroline's stuck at home frightening off the men her mother hopes will ask for her hand in marriage. When her mother sets her sights on the questionable Lord Bremerton as a possible suitor, Caroline struggles with her instincts and the true nature of her heart. She longs for adventure, passion, love, and most of all...Jack Culhane, an unconventional Irish-American bachelor with new money and no title.

    Any additional comments?

    I'm a huge fan of Janet Evanovich, but this one was really disappointing. I know she will never win a Nobel Price for great literature, but her books are generally fun fluff that provide entertainment and great (rather mindless) escapism. However, The Husband List was just wrong. Wrong historical accuracy, wrong dialog and wrong story line. Lorelei King's reading is great for the Stephanie Plumb series, but didn't sound right for this one. I'll continue to read and enjoy Janet Evanovich, but will read the summary more carefully from now on before I buy the next one.

    Hetta and her husband, Bob (Jenks) Jenkins, have finally broken free from the rat race of corporate America. Having forsaken the shackles of deadlines, they have been enjoying the soul liberating life of freedom. For the past five years, they have traveled on their boat, Jensky, meeting new friends and finding their true selves. Freedom, however, comes with a price.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Jinx Schwartz again?

    Probably not.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Beth Richmond?

    I think Beth Richmond COULD be better if she didn't sound like she was reading to children.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. Listened to the first one, and thought perhaps the second one would be better because the first one ended better than it began, but I was wrong. Did not follow the first book well, nor did it build into anything good.

    It was whispered all through London society that he was a murderer, that he'd spent his youth in an asylum and was not to be trusted - especially with a lady. Any woman caught in his presence was immediately ruined. Yet Beth found herself inexorably drawn to the Scottish lord whose hint of a brogue wrapped around her like silk and whose touch could draw her into a world of ecstasy.

    Would you try another book from Jennifer Ashley and/or Angela Dawe?

    Probably not.


    What could Jennifer Ashley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Creativity was lacking.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance wasn't bad. Not great, but not bad.


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

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    Very predictable.

    Since You're Leaving Anyway, Take Out the Trash is a rollicking Texas mystery debut jam-packed with humor - and a heaping helping of romance to boot! Down in Salt Lick, Texas, a lot of folks got sass, but beauty salon proprietor Debbie Sue Overstreet has a bit more than most.

    What disappointed you about Since You're Leaving Anyway, Take Out the Trash?

    This was touted as a "hilarious, fun book", but the humor is trite and the writing is juvenile. The narration is flat and unimaginative at best. Ms. Price's lisp is a little disconcerting as well.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dixie Cash again?

    No

    At Cold Mountain Penitentiary, the convicted killers on E Block await their turn to walk the Green Mile and keep a date with the electric chair. Paul Edgecombe has seen his share of oddities in his years working as a guard on the Mile, but he's never met anyone like John Coffey.

    Would you listen to The Green Mile again? Why?

    I've rarely re-read and never re-listened to a book before, but this audio book may be the exception. I think listening to this book again would reveal new insight and inspiration with each repetition of the story.


    What about Frank Muller’s performance did you like?

    Each character was well developed and distinctive. I felt as if I was listening to a friend tell me the story. I have an MFA in acting, and so appreciate the art of great story telling!


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Stephen King and Frank Muller!
