    Neville Roscoe, notorious and enigmatic, lives resolutely outside society, bound only by his own code of honor - until challenged by his desire for the one woman he cannot have. Miranda Clifford is a lady imprisoned by rigid respectability - until tempted by a passion beyond her power to deny. Flung together in peril, through danger and intrigue, they discover a love impossible to ignore...or keep.

    This is a very different book: It is written for the dreamers of this world - the people who KNOW that something different is possible - but who have never had the tools before.... This is a Handbook for Generating Infinite Possibilities and Dynamic Change. For you. And the world. Ten years ago, Dr. Dain Heer started as a chiropractor in California, USA. Seemingly successful and happy, Dain Heer was on the verge of suicide when he came across Access Consciousness. With this modality, based on question and choice, Dr. Heer's life began to expand and grow with more ease and speed than even he could have imagined possible.

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

    Yes, I would certainly tell a friend about this audiobook. It gets under the surface of what we think we know and allows us to reconnect with the soul


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Being You, Changing the World?

    I can't pick one moment. I have listened to it twice and feel that I need to listen another few times to get all that I can from this book.


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

    So much of the book is experiential that I could just close my eyes and follow along.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    That when we talk to and listen to our body it will help us and the same is true of our soul.

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

    This was really disappointing, Half way through the book and I don't care about either main character. The narration and flow of the book is bad.


    Would you ever listen to anything by M. S. Laurens again?

    Not unless I see some really awesome reviews


    How could the performance have been better?

    She should have stayed with the "voice" she used before. I don't even believe this was written by one of my favorite authors.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a "wonderful" husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and Don sets out to find the perfect partner. She will be punctual and logical - most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver. Yet Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent - and on a quest of her own....

    A story that didn't just rely on a single irritating behavior. It might have gotten better but by the time I had listened to 4 chapters I was so bored I decided to quit punishing myself.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe I just don't understand the humor.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    What was most disappointing about Kathleen Brooks’s story?

    Poor character development, not much story to it at all.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He came across rather flat. His little old lady voices were the best as the leading role he was just dull.


    Do you think Bluegrass State of Mind needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, I can't imagine the story going anywhere.

    I enjoy cozy mysteries but this one didn't do it for me.

    In the final installment of O'Day-Flannery's uplifting and spiritual paranormal romance trilogy, it is finally Claire's turn to find love. Her closest friends have found new promise in life through love, and while Claire is happy for them, she cannot help but feel left out. A fling under a shower of meteors may not be love, but could be exactly what she needs to shake off the doldrums. But when secrets from Claire's past return to destroy her, her sexy, nerdy fling shows he's not quite what he seems.

    Where does Old Friends rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was an interesting listen, not the best. I did call some friends and recommend it.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Constance O'Day-Flannery? Why or why not?

    yes, she uses some good ideas, rather metaphysical in her approach.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I couldn't pick just one scene, many were funny and or thought provoking.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Who did you say you were again?
