    At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

    I expected more self help and less stories. Although the stories are supposed to be examples, the didn't actually cover the lesson on how to change habbits which I was looking for.

    Everyone wins this game of literary tennis, a comedy of manners about envy in which Wickham skewers the nouveau riche. At their country estate, Patrick Chance and his wife host a weekend tennis party. As four couples gather on the sunny terrace, it seems obvious who among them is succeeding, and who is falling behind. But by the end of the party, nothing will be quite as certain.

    To many details in introducing characters/introduction went on to long. The end picked up though.

    When the spirit of Lara's great-aunt Sadie - a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance - mysteriously appears, she has one last request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie's possession for more than 75 years, and Sadie cannot rest without it. Lara, on the other hand, has a number of ongoing distractions.

    Twenties Girl was a lot of fun. Of course parts of the story was make believe but that made it even more fun. Don't listen to the readers who wrote negative feedback. I almost listened to them, but thought I will try it. There is no screaming. I wanted the book to continue, maybe a return of the Twenties girl???

    Mudgirl is a child abandoned by her mother in the silty flats of the Black Snake River. Cast aside, Mudgirl survives by an accident of fate - or destiny. After her rescue, the well-meaning couple who adopt Mudgirl quarantine her poisonous history behind the barrier of their middle-class values, seemingly sealing it off forever. But the bulwark of the present proves surprisingly vulnerable to the agents of the past.

    Story

    With out giving anything away, something horrendoeus happened to a gentleman at the president of the colleges house but the consequences or inquiry were just ignored by the author. Did the author maybe want to mention something more and ran out of space???

    It is unbelieveable for so many misgivings to happen to one person.

    The reader of this story was very much an over actor. I found myself rolling my eyes at times.

    With the reputation of this author, I expected more.

    Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree.

    This book was so much fun. I found myself laughing out loud many times. Honestly I did not want to stop listening when I had other things to do. I keep looking for something similar to this book, but still cannot find anything comparable.

    A rookie paramedic pulls a young woman alive from her totaled car, a first rescue that begins a lifelong tangle of love and wreckage. Sheila Arsenault is a gorgeous enigma--streetwise and tough-talking, with haunted eyes, fierce desires, and a never-look-back determination. Peter Webster, as straight an arrow as they come, falls for her instantly and entirely. Soon Sheila and Peter are embroiled in an intense love affair, married, and parents to a baby daughter.

    Story

    Anita Shreve's best novel was Fortunes Rock, then the couple that followed. The last three novels were fair, but Rescue was the worst.

    Shreve never went deep into any character. Threw a character in for a brief second, killed the character off, and never went into how the person with the character that died felt, never had the survivor morn. This is just one example of how Shreve, a one time great story teller, but has become a very poor story teller.

    I don't think I will give Shreve another chance. A waist of my time and money.
