    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    Leaving Hannah was the biggest mistake of Marco's life - something he has deeply regretted for years. So when fate reunites them, he refuses to let her go without a fight. Determined to make her his, Marco pursues Hannah, reminding her of all the reasons they're meant to be together. But just when Marco thinks they're committed to a future together, Hannah makes a discovery that unearths the secret pain she's been hiding from him - a secret that could tear them apart before they have a real chance to start over again.

    To satisfy his late father’s wishes, hot and single billionaire Michael Conte must find a bride - someone who will fit into his traditional family back home in Italy - and fast, so his engaged sister will be allowed to wed. With no intention of being tied down, Michael "proposes" to fiery, free-spirited photographer Maggie Ryan: If she will play the part of his fiancée during her trip to Milan for a photo shoot, he will keep away from her married best friend, Alexa, and stop making Maggie nuts with their too-close-for-comfort flirtations. But once in Italy, sexual tension sparks the hottest no-strings-attached arrangement on any continent....

    History has all but forgotten.... In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next best-selling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write. But then she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction....

    Love Stories in Two Times


    Any additional comments?

    I thought this might be difficult to follow on audiobook because of the way it went back and forth between the past and the present. Thankfully, Rosalyn Landor did a fantastic job with the different voices. She made it easy to follow this book when it could have been difficult.

    Sadie Hutchins loves her job at the Kentucky Tourism Commission. Not only could her co-workers double as the cast of Parks and Recreation, but she loves finding the unusual sites, hidden gems, and just-plain-odd tourist attractions of her home state. She’s a shoo-in for the director’s job when her boss retires at the end of the year…until hotshot Josh Vaughn shows up to challenge her for the position. Josh is all sophisticated polish while Sadie’s country comfort, and the two have very different ideas of what makes a good campaign.

    Would you listen to My Bluegrass Baby again? Why?

    Probably not. I am a fan of Molly Harper because I love her humor, but this one was just so-so. While I often listen to my books again, I probably will just shelve this one.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most - Finding her way
    Least - The love affair


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Amanda Ronconi is fantastic, and she pairs with Molly Harper's with really well. She has just the right inflections. She really sells the tone of the novel through her performance.


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

    Sometimes it made me chuckle, but not as much as some of Molly's other books.

    What did you love best about On Dublin Street?

    The tenacity of the hero. He just would not give up, and you have to love that about a man.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Braden. I just loved the way that Braden works Joss in this story. He doesn't let her angst win.


    What about Paula Costello’s performance did you like?

    Paula did a decent job. The way she switched accents was amazing! Sometimes, I struggled with her male voices, but overall pretty good.


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

    Persevere for love.


    Any additional comments?

    My only complaint about this book was Joss' continual angst. At some point in time, you just have to say enough is enough. I get that she had a rough past, but it seemed to drag on a bit.

    Johanna Walker is used to taking charge. But she’s about to meet someone who will make her lose control....

    It has always been up to Johanna to care for her family, particularly her younger brother, Cole. With an absent father and a useless mother, she’s been making decisions based on what’s best for Cole for as long as she can remember. She even determines what men to date by how much they can provide for her brother and her, not on whatever sparks may - or may not - fly. But with Cameron MacCabe, the attraction is undeniable....

    Would you listen to Down London Road again? Why?

    Yes. I actually already went back and listened to the last two hours for a second time. Unlike some romances, this one is something that could and probably does happen. It was nice to read about real people with real struggles working to make this work.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Down London Road?

    It would be a spoiler, so I don't want to write it; however, it is in the prologue.


    What about Elle Newlands’s performance did you like?

    I liked Elle's narration so much that I added her other Audible book to my wish list. The book gets good reviews, so it is probably a win-win.


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

    Love in the face of life.


    Any additional comments?

    While I enjoyed the first book in this series, I liked this one better. Both are worth the listen, but Jo had far less angst than Joss which was a nice change.

    Yes. It is short, so I was able to listen to off and on over a 24 hour period; however, I would have loved to sit down and listen to it all at once.


    Any additional comments?

    This is an amazing and compelling story that needs to be heard.
