    Maggie Beaumont's luck is about to change. Sure, she's known for her bad romantic choices-her former boyfriend broke up with her by bringing his new girlfriend home for a visit. And then there was the crush she had on a gorgeous young Irishman, who turned out to be Father Tim, the parish's new priest. But romantic salvation has arrived in the form of handsome, if surly, fisherman Malone. It turns out there's a heart of gold underneath his barnacle-clad exterior. Will this catch of the day turn into the dish of a lifetime?

    What made the experience of listening to Catch of the Day the most enjoyable?

    The intonation of the narrator, she captured the humor the author intended.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Catch of the Day?

    The day Maggie realized that Tim was the new priest in town.


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

    No but I will soon. She's a talented narrator, I wish she narrated more of this author's books.


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

    Maggie is used to putting her foot in her mouth but does she have faith that she'll take a step in the right direction and find love in her hometown?


    Any additional comments?

    This was such a great find. You won't be disappointed if you're looking for a book that will make you miss the characters as soon as it ends.

    If you could sum up Code Talker in three words, what would they be?

    Enlightening, Informative, Delightful


    What other book might you compare Code Talker to and why?

    I've never read another book like this one so I don't have an answer to this question


    Which character – as performed by David Colacci – was your favorite?

    Chester Nez


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The sadness of how they were treated as children and how their animals were inhumanely slaughtered. Heartbreaking.


    Any additional comments?

    I finished listening to this book about 2 weeks before Chester Nez died. It was a worthwhile book, giving me a glimpse into how a people who were treated so unjustly were willing to risk their lives and use a language that wasn't appreciated to save a country that allowed their harsh treatment to continue. I have such a respect for their service. Thank you.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Teddy says: "Demented, twisted, sick and I loved it!"
    "Disappointed in the ending"

    If you could sum up Gone Girl in three words, what would they be?

    Unique, Disturbing, Disappointing


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It did. Just when you think she can't possibly get any crazier, she does.


    What about Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance did you like?

    Their voices were pleasant to listen to.


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

    She's just that crazy...


    Any additional comments?

    I'm one of the few people I know who read this book and was disappointed in the ending. Everyone else I know who read it loved it from start to finish so maybe it's me.

    By edict of the king, the mighty Scottish laird Alec Kincaid must take an English bride. His choice was Jamie the feisty youngest daughter of Baron Jamison. Alec ached to touch her, to tame her, to possess her forever. But Jamie vowed never to surrender to this highland barbarian. Though his kisses fired her blood, shadowed secrets from Alec's past threatened Jamie's happiness. She brazenly resisted him - until one rapturous moment quelled their clash of wills.

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

    Sure. It has a witty and humorous leading lady paired with a gruff but loving man who are getting to know each other. It's a fun combination.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jaime was my favorite lead and the priest my favorite supporting character.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When she unknowingly was crying in front of the king.


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

    I can't think of anything witty.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't think I'd enjoy this book as much as I did. It was delightful.
