Armed with two bus tickets, Kacey and her 15-year-old sister, Livie, escape Grand Rapids, Michigan, to start over in Miami. Kacey's not worried.

    What made the experience of listening to Ten Tiny Breaths the most enjoyable?

    I was very much invested in the characters I was listening to. The combination of the writing and the narration was a very nice combination. I was able to forget that I was listening to a book and just listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ten Tiny Breaths?

    I like turning points, and there were a few in this book. Big character revelations and growth was almost a motto here, and I enjoy some well written drama.


    Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Louise – was your favorite?

    I really enjoyed everyone in this novel. The narrator was very good at character distinction.


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

    No, but I'm a busy gal so I wouldn't do that with any book. I can read faster than I can listen, and listening is a completely different experience.

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

    CAROLYN says: "GREAT LISTEN - IT KEPT ME SMILING THROUGHOUT"
    "Such fun!"

    Would you listen to Wallbanger again? Why?

    Yes. This was like watching a great rom-com. Fun, forgettable, and very entertaining. I would listen again because the writing and the narration was simple fun! Nothing heavy here .


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love angst, and these characters had some very minor heart wrenching that I enjoyed.


    Which character – as performed by Heather Smith – was your favorite?

    I always love the protagonists best. I honestly didn't love her voice for Simon, but I still enjoyed the read.


    If you could rename Wallbanger, what would you call it?

    Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare.... Four years ago, Jocelyn left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Scotland, burying her grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without attachments. Her solitary life is working well - until she moves into a new apartment on Dublin Street where she meets a man who shakes her carefully guarded world to its core.

    Would you consider the audio edition of On Dublin Street to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version but I love hearing accents as they are meant to be spoken, and I think the narrator did an excellent Scottish brogue!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of On Dublin Street?

    I liked the character buildup.


    Which character – as performed by Paula Costello – was your favorite?

    The protagonist, Joss, was the best, because she was snarky and sassy and vulnerable all in one, but I loved the Scottish crew as well, because she was very good at the accent.


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

    Not really, I love the romance but was frustrated by the main character. I was, however, appreciative that she also recognized her stupidity, which made her a bit more palatable for me.
