    Faith Holland left her hometown after being jilted at the altar. Now a little older and wiser, she's ready to return to the Blue Heron Winery, her family's vineyard, to confront the ghosts of her past, and maybe enjoy a glass of red. After all, there's some great scenery there.... Like Levi Cooper, the local police chief - and best friend of her former fiancé. There's a lot about Levi that Faith never noticed, and it's not just those deep green eyes.

    The basic plot of the story was great.... Young woman left at the alter because her fiancé was gay then falls in love with his best friend. But adding in the epilepsy and the crash that killed her mom went too far. Sometimes a more simple story is better.

    More Four! Fans of the Divergent series by number-one New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth will be thrilled by "The Transfer", the first of four new short stories told from Four's perspective. Each brief story explores the world of the Divergent series through the eyes of the mysterious but charismatic Tobias Eaton, revealing previously unknown facets of his personality, backstory, and relationships.

    Just as Alix Madsen is finishing up architectural school, Adelaide Kingsley dies and wills her, for one year, the use of a charming 19th-century Nantucket house. The elderly woman's relationship to the Madsen family is a mystery to the spirited Alix - fresh from a romantic breakup - but for reasons of her own, Alix accepts the quirky bequest, in part because it gives her time to plan her best friend's storybook wedding.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I just was not crazy about the story or the narrator from page 1. I couldn't get past the first couple of chapters....

    The hardheaded Armstrong brothers are determined to rebuild their tornado-ravaged hometown in the Georgia mountains. They've got the means, they've got the manpower...what they need are women! So they place an ad in a northern newspaper and wait for the ladies to answer their call. Porter, the youngest Armstrong, is all for importing women. Still, he's so blown away by the sheer numbers, he falls off the water tower. Luckily, there's a doctor among the newcomers - sweet and sexy Dr. Nikki Salinger.

    Just don't buy the book. Seriously, don't do it. It is not written well, it is not realistic, and the story is not good. I didn't even finish 30 minutes of it.

    Little else in life is as dangerous as fire jumping. Flying past towering pillars of smoke, parachuting down to the edge of an all-consuming blaze, shoveling and sawing for hours upon hours, days at a time, all to hold the line and push back against the raw power of Mother Nature. But there’s also little else as thrilling - at least to Rowan Tripp. The Missoula smoke jumpers are one of the most exclusive firefighting squads in the nation, and the job is in Rowan’s blood: her father is a legend in the field. She’s been fighting fires since her eighteenth birthday.

    At first I thought that the fire jumping would be a secondary plot, more of a complement to the story. However, the fire jumping and the story of the building relationship are so intertwined that I can't wait to hear what's next. Normally I only listen to the books when I'm driving, but I found myself listening to this story at home trying catch a couple. Of minutes here and there. Sometimes I am bothered when there are too many twists in a story.... While this book has several different twists and story lines going on at the same time, I haven't been lost yet and the twists just add to what is already a great story. Highly recommended. One of Nora Roberts' best yet.

    Thomas knows that Wicked can't be trusted, but they say the time for lies is over, that they've collected all they can from the Trials and now must rely on the Gladers, with full memories restored, to help them with their ultimate mission. It's up to the Gladers to complete the blueprint for the cure to the Flare with a final voluntary test. What Wicked doesn't know is that something's happened that no Trial or Variable could have foreseen. Thomas has remembered far more than they think. And he knows that he can't believe a word of what Wicked says. The time for lies is over.

    Everytime I thought I had the series figured out, another twist came in. Such an exciting plot with well developed characters. The imagery was amazing making me able to clearly picture every detail. Great series!
