    Working the graveyard shift as a waitress, single mother Jessie Mann has no time to waste on a Texan with big dreams and a skinny wallet. And that’s just what she sees when Jack Morrison ambles into the diner where she works. After a childhood of financial instability, Jessie swore she’d do better by her son. But with Christmas just around the corner, saying no to Jack and his cowboy good looks is easier said than done.

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

    Yes, it was a fun listen that I really enjoyed.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was mostly good. The lady has a nice voice that I enjoyed. For the main character, though, she'd sound a wee bit "valley girl" to me at times. But all in all she was quite pleasant to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth a credit for those who enjoy a romantic love story with likeable characters. I was bummed when it ended.

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    What made the experience of listening to Dark Places the most enjoyable?

    The narrators are fantastic.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's a good story. Disturbing, but good. You want to know what happened that night, and it's very satisfying once all is revealed.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Libby goes to see Trey in the present was the best, it felt very intense to me.


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

    Yes! I had to stop with one hour left so I could go to bed, and I finished it as soon as possible the next day.


    Any additional comments?

    This writer is my new favorite. This book has a lot of layers to it. It's complicated, a whodunit with family issues, not too lovable characters, and disturbing imagery. Glad I took the risk and tried it after reading "Gone Girl". Next is "Sharp Objects". Highly recommend! Definitely worth a credit.

    Defiant Highland beauty Fiona Sinclair is shocked by her brothers’ treachery. To seal a fragile truce, they have traded her hand in marriage to their sworn enemy, a man she has never met, a man she was raised to despise. With no choice but to wed, Fiona makes her own private vow: Though she may sacrifice her freedom, she will never surrender her heart. Commanded into marriage by the king, Myles Campbell is no more willing than his reluctant bride. Still, she is a rare beauty, passionate enough to warm even the coldest marriage bed.

    Would you try another book from Tracy Brogan and/or Sarah Coomes?

    Sarah Coomes, probably not.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sarah Coomes’s performances?

    In this book, her Scottish accent sounds more like she's constantly asking a question when she's actually making a statement. Like she's a Scottish valley girl, it's very annoying. She has a pleasant voice, though.


    Was Highland Surrender worth the listening time?

    I haven't been able to finish the first part yet. The story is okay so far but I can't get past the narration.

    What's a nice girl like Miss Juliet Shelby doing at a place like Lord Deveril's ballroom? With her shy demeanor, she's a total stranger to the dance floor and a source of mockery for the ton. So imagine her surprise when Deveril gallantly comes to her defense - and offers to teach her to dance! Juliet can hardly believe the most handsome bachelor in London would notice her, until he takes her in his arms and sets her heart ablaze. Lord Alec Deveril has never felt such a spark of attraction for an unmarried lady before. Unlike the "fashionable" ladies he's accustomed to, Juliet possesses a generous spirit, a fiery intelligence, and a secret.

    Wealthy and roguish, Demon Cynster is perfectly content without love. Having witnessed his Cynster brethren driven to their knees by women, he knows all too well what the power of love can do to a man. But he never banked on meeting Felicity Parteger, a luscious, curvy beauty in desperate need of help. Could this tempting woman be the one?

    What did you like best about A Rogue's Proposal? What did you like least?

    I don't like it, it's boring. I have enjoyed other Stephanie Laurens books far better.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Stephanie Laurens? Why or why not?

    Yes, because other ones were better.


    What aspect of Simon Prebble’s performance would you have changed?

    He's okay. Not my favorite narrator, but I won't pass on a book if he's the narrator either.
