    She's 33, unmarried, and stuffed into a Bubble-Yum-pink bridesmaid dress. And the whole town wants to fix her up with anyone with a dental plan.... Who's going to rescue Sadie Hollowell now? Everyone in Lovett, Texas, knows Sadie has always been a "notional" kind of gal. She got a notion to leave town ASAP and never visit her daddy (bless his heart) again. Now she's back and got the notion to invite a good-looking, hard-muscled, total stranger to her cousin's wedding.

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

    Yes, if you love romance, you'll love this new Rachel Gibson contemporary romance. She gives you a great, sexy romp in her classic sassy, irreverant voice set in Lovett, Texas. These memorable, quirky characters are funny and just close enough to some of those people we may have known in our own small towns to make us identify with the heroine.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rescue Me?

    The emotional journey of the heroine and hero are excellent in this book. She made me laugh, she made me cry. I loved it.

    And Navy SEAL Vince Haven is hot, hot, hot.


    Have you listened to any of Kathleen Early???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. Good.


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

    Yes. I did read it in one day--between the audio book and the print version. I had it covered in one day. Yay.


    Any additional comments?

    Adored it!

    Film lover Barbara Marr is a typical suburban mom living the typical suburban life in her sleepy little town of Rustic Woods, Virginia. Typical, that is until she sets out to find the missing link between a bizarre monkey sighting in her yard and the bone chilling middle-of-the-night fright fest at the strangely vacant house next door. When Barb talks her two friends into some seemingly innocent Charlie's Angels-like sleuthing, they stumble upon way more than they bargained for and uncover a piece of neighborhood history that certain people would kill to keep on the cutting room floor.

    What did you love best about Take the Monkeys and Run (A Barbara Marr Murder Mystery #1)?

    I loved the wit, humor, sweetness, and poignancy of this book. It is spectacularly performed to a T. And the writing is clever, laugh-out-loud funny, and, at times, hits really close to emotional home. This is a highly entertaining murder mystery that will keep you on your toes as amateur sleuth Barbara Marr finds herself neck-deep in a murder mystery that lands practically in her back yard. She solicits a quirky cast of characters to help her solve the mystery and unravel the hilarious and sometimes inane clues.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Take the Monkeys and Run (A Barbara Marr Murder Mystery #1)?

    There is so much memorable about this book that it's hard to pinpoint to one thing. But I'd say the first kiss Barbara's estranged husband gives her is one of the scenes that will stick in my mind for a long time. The scene is bittersweet and filled with both a longing and love for her husband who has walked away from their marriage without any explanation. As the mystery unfolds, we begin to realize the need for Howard's withdraw from his family. However, this initial kiss scene between them is beautiful and heartbreaking.


    Which character – as performed by Nan McNamara – was your favorite?

    Barbara Marr. She takes on a life of her own as she speaks the dialogue the author has written for her. Filled with charisma and wit, Barbara is a much-loved favorite!


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

    Yes. Unfortunately, because of life commitments, I had to split it over several days. Yet, each time, I was loathe to walk away from the story and eager to pick it back up as soon as I got back in the car!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved everything about this story. It's amazingly well done all around. Bravo Karen Cantwell, bravo Nan McNamara, bravo Barbara Marr! <3

    Sean Kowalski no sooner leaves the army than he's recruited by Emma Shaw to be her fake fiance;. Emma needs to produce a husband-to-be for her grandmother's upcoming visit, and, though Sean doesn't like the deception, he could use the landscaping job Emma's offering while he decides what to do with his civilian life. And, despite his attraction to Emma, there's no chance he'll fall for a woman with deep roots in a town he's not planning to call home.

    Loved this newest by Shannon Stacey. Great emotional ride. Had me laughing and crying. Wonderful hunky Kowalski hero. Spunky conflicted heroine. Fun, witty reparte between the main characters. Crazy Kowalski family that we love so much. Keep them coming!
