    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'm not sure. It just wasn't as entertaining as the first one. The characters weren't as vivid as the ones from the first book. Maybe if it was read by the same person as the first in the series it would be more comparable.


    Would you recommend The Wedding to your friends? Why or why not?

    If you like Julie Garwood I guess you might enjoy this book. I would not recommend it to someone who has never read one of her other books. She is a good writer and I would not have someone judge all of her material by this one


    Do you think The Wedding needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No I don't think this one should have been a follow up for the Bride either.

  • I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had: My Year as a Rookie Teacher at Northeast High

    Long before he starred on some of television’s most beloved and long-running series such as Taxi and Who’s the Boss? and went on to distinguish himself in a variety of film and stage roles, Tony Danza was a walking contradiction: an indifferent student who dreamed of being a teacher. Inspiring a classroom of students was an aspiration he put aside for decades until one day it seemed that the most meaningful thing he could do was give his dream a shot. What followed was a year spent teaching 10th-grade English at Northeast High - Philadelphia’s largest high school with 3,600 students....

    What made the experience of listening to I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had the most enjoyable?

    Tony Danza is a great story teller. As the parent of teacher I think I was able to relate to his stories of the life as a teacher. Just as Tony says teaching is a very hard and unappreciated job. You are either borned to teach or you just quit at the first chance you get> I don't think there are any teachers working for the money and job security but for the love of what they do.


    Which character – as performed by Tony Danza – was your favorite?

    Tony Danza, the teacher. He gives us a very candid and detailed story about his experiences in the classroom.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wish I could have been able to finish it in one sitting but could not. I sent a copy to my daughter because I think every teacher should have the opportunity to hear it. I also think the all of us as ex-student should mirror Tony's sentiments when he said at the end " I would like to apologize to every teacher I ever had."


    Any additional comments?

    In my opinion every student teacher should have the opportunity to read or listen to this book before entering a classroom

    New York Times best-selling author Tracy Anne Warren is among the world’s most popular Regency romance novelists. She sweeps listeners to the Irish countryside for this saucy tale of deception. When Lady Jeannette Brantford is banished from her family’s estate in England, she encounters the dashing Darragh O’Brien. Too bad the common architect is well below her station.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend it to a friend. I enjoyed it a lot. The story was a little different from the other 2. It kept the characters in what I thought was their original personalities.


    What other book might you compare The Wife Trap to and why?

    I guess it compares some what with the first book in the Wallflower series just because of the fact the characters want to be loved but are afraid to give all the have because of fear of rejection and their love being unrequited love.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When they were in the most compromising situation. I laughed so hard. Their reactions were priceless. Can't say more or I'll ruin it for the other readers.


    Any additional comments?

    I left this book for last because Jeannette was my least favorite character in book one. I could not stand her and her uppity attitude. She was such a snob. But after finishing it I wish I would have listened to them in order. The third book took a little of the fun and shock out of this last book. But all in all the series is pretty good.

    What did you love best about Seduce Me at Sunrise?

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Seduce Me at Sunrise?

    Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

    She's a great performer. She develops them all and you feel like you are there as things happen, but if I had to pick I would say Rohan is my favorite in all five books in the series


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

    It evoked both emotions in me depending on the part of the story

    You must read them all and the order does not matter.

    When an unexpected inheritance elevates her family to the ranks of the aristocracy, Amelia Hathaway discovers that tending to her younger sisters and wayward brother was easy compared to navigating the intricacies of the ton. Even more challenging: the attraction she feels for the tall, dark, and dangerously handsome Cam Rohan.

    Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

    Cam Rohan. I fell in love with this character during the reading of the Wallflower series.


    Any additional comments?

    I read the some of previous comments on this book which really weren't good, but I still got it and I was not disappointed with it. If you hear or read the whole series it makes more sense than if you just get one of the books. I love the way Rosalyn Landon gives every character a unique personality and some how she carries it through the entire series. I would recommend this book to my friends because it's funny and also romantic without being sappy. Lisa Kleypas is one of my favorite romance writers.

    Sergey and Marina Dyachenko mix dramatic scenes with romance, action and wit, in a style both direct and lyrical. Written with a sure artistic hand, The Scar is the story of a man driven by his own feverish demons to find redemption and the woman who just might save him. Egert is a brash, confident member of the elite guards and an egotistical philanderer. But after he kills an innocent student in a duel, a mysterious man known as “The Wanderer” challenges Egert and slashes his face with his sword, leaving Egert with a scar that comes to symbolize his cowardice.

    Within the depths of her eccentric, struggling-writer mind, within her every novel, lies what she believes to be the perfect man. The perfect hero. His name...Bob. Emily Stevenson dreams, creates, inspires and writes all for the one character she truly feels no man alive could compare. No man alive, that is. All that changes when Emily's fictional world comically collides with reality. Not only does she meet the man who looks, talks, and acts like her "Bob", but she falls in love with him. There's only one problem....

    Would you listen to Bob again? Why?

    Laughed out loud! Had my son wondering what was so funny. This is a very funny and enjoyable book. It's my first from this author, bought it on impulse and I know I'll listen to it over and over again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bob?

    When Bob realizes he can be seen by Emily and Stephanie


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

    The life he brings to each of the characters is amazing. He gives every one of them a distinct personality and such feeling that would not come from just reading the book.


    Who was the most memorable character of Bob and why?

    I would have a hard time picking between Emily, Bob and Stephanie. They were so much fun to follow.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?
