    Abilene Tucker feels abandoned. Her father has put her on a train, sending her off to live with an old friend for the summer while he works a railroad job. Armed only with a few possessions and her list of universals, Abilene jumps off the train in Manifest, Kansas, aiming to learn about the boy her father once was. Having heard stories about Manifest, Abilene is disappointed to find that it's just a dried-up, worn-out old town. But her disappointment quickly turns to excitement when she discovers a hidden cigar box full of mementos.

    Story
    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This narrator I first encountered in The Help . she is delightful to listen to. I have enjoyed several of her performances. She has an innocent, soothing quality to her voice.


    Any additional comments?

    A really nice read. I truly enjoyed the perspective of a young girl as the main character. The author does a wonderful job of reminding us of the wildly unlimited imagination young people have. It was nostalgic to recall a time when we did not have all the distractions of modern social media to distract us and limit the freedoms of our creative, uncluttered imaginations. Don't misunderstand! I love the smart phone (it's how I listen to Audible!)

    Jo Marie Rose first arrives in Cedar Cove seeking a sense of peace and a fresh start. She purchases a local bed-and-breakfast - the newly christened Rose Harbor Inn - ready to begin her life anew. Yet the inn holds more surprises than Jo Marie can imagine. Her first guest is Joshua Weaver, who has come home to care for his ailing stepfather. The two have never seen eye to eye, and Joshua has little hope that they can reconcile. But a long-lost acquaintance from Joshua's high school days proves to him that forgiveness is never out of reach and love can bloom even where it's least expected.

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

    It is a good read, I am a fan of Nora Roberts. The only thing that was a tad disappointing was the predictable use of stereotypical behaviors in the characters.

    In this rollicking tale, best-selling author Dixie Cash - author of My Heart May Be Broken but My Hair Still Looks Great - sets Salt Lick's own sleuthing cosmetologists on a collision course with the Big Apple. On an all-expenses-paid trip to a New York PI convention, the Texas Tornadoes hope to do some serious shopping. But that's before they stumble across a serial killer.
