    Guide dog trainer Lenae McIntyre left the high-speed world of television news writing behind, and now she helps other visually impaired people adjust to life with their canine companions. She teaches her students and their dogs to trust each other, but a past betrayal and the determination to be self-sufficient and independent keep her from trusting her heart to see love. Cara Bradley compensates for her family's shallow celebrity lifestyle by devoting her life to helping others, while keeping to the background.

    Story
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I started out not thinking much about the everyday challenges of the blind. I'd like to think that's not because I'm callous, but I had never put much time into it. I didn't know that "puppy walking" is a real thing. This book gently taught me quite a bit. What I didn't like was that the language was simple and many of the sentences short and repetitive.


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

    I'd never heard a narration by Betsy Zajko before. Her narration added depth to the story.

    Loyalty, commitment, the fight against injustice - these are the things that have always driven Elvis Cole and Joe Pike. If they make a promise, they keep it. Even if it could get them killed. When Elvis Cole is hired to locate a woman who may have disappeared with a stranger she met online, it seems like an ordinary case - until Elvis learns the missing woman worked for a defense contractor and was being blackmailed to supply explosives components for a person or persons unknown.

    Such a good read - love that Maggie has a voice. Tough guys with heart - my favorite.

    Molly has arrived home from Vassar to reveal that she has an important announcement to make. Her mother, Suzanne, is convinced that Molly’s news is history repeating herself and that she’s about to become a 36-year-old grandmother. Suzanne’s mother, Ava, develops a case of impending great-grandmother fever - that is, when she’s not spying on the new next-door neighbor, Buddy McKinley, who turns out to be a blast from her past.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book because it deals with issues real people face in everyday ordinary lives


    What about Emily Durante’s performance did you like?

    The narration added to the emotional depth of the story


    Do you think She Effin' Hates Me needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I like where the story ended - at a place where the characters could explore new more positive relationships.

    Jill Fryman (Friday to her friends) is a line supervisor at a truck manufacturing plant in a small southern Indiana town. Life on the assembly line is almost as predictable as her love life. When it comes to matters of the heart, Friday always seems to be making the wrong choices. Things go from bad to worse when El, a sultry labor organizer from the UAW, sweeps into town to unionize the plant right after it's been bought out by a Japanese firm.

    Any additional comments?

    This book was terrific because the characters had depth and the humor was great. I also learned a bit about Indiana. I frequently finding myself wishing editors would take more time or pay more attention when I read lesbian fiction. This book was well written. The characters were consistent and had multi-dimensional personalities.

    It was much better than most of it's genre - enjoy!
