    Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he’s been left an old friend’s entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community’s destiny in his hands. Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Wanderer the most enjoyable?

    The narrator's voice was just wrong for the protagonist- he was a decent guy who was given such a rough voicing that it was hard to keep listening


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The ending was a little predictable


    Would you be willing to try another one of Therese Plummer’s performances?

    NO


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the lead charactor stood up for Landon, the younger brother.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a bit hard to force myself to continue listening to the harsh voicing of the Cooper character...I was tempted to turn to the printed verrsion of this book due to the narration

    This breakthrough six-week plan assures success by helping you to assess the advantages of weight loss, pick a sensible diet and exercise program, set a goal, line up support, and prepare your environment - all before starting any diet. This unique approach is key to preventing the downfalls that so often lead to failure.

    Mary says: "Wow -- it really works"
    "Missing information"
    Overall

    I loved the inspirational messages in the reading, however, the narrator referred to lists from which the listener was to choose from and never read the information in the lists- a major flaw in an otherwise good read. Perhaps those pages could be accessed elsewhere?

  • Major Pettigrew's Last Stand: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 8 mins)

    Story
    (1225)

    You are about to travel to Edgecombe St. Mary, a small village in the English countryside filled with rolling hills, thatched cottages, and a cast of characters both hilariously original and as familiar as the members of your own family. Among them is Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired), the unlikely hero of Helen Simonson's wondrous debut. Wry, courtly, opinionated, and completely endearing, Major Pettigrew is one of the most indelible characters in contemporary fiction.

    Sara says: "A Surprising Treat!"
    "Delightful listen"
    Overall

    The author has done a fine job fleshing out his characters, especially the Major, a man of integrity in spite of those who surround him.
    What at first seems a predictible ending has a surprising twist.
    Very pleasant read/listen.
