    Hayley Phillips came to Memphis hoping for a new start, for herself and her unborn child. What she found was a home, said to be haunted but surrounded by beauty and friends - including Roz's son Harper. But to Hayley's chagrin, she has begun to dream about Harper - as much more than a friend. If Hayley gives in to her desire, she's afraid the foundation she's built with Harper will come tumbling down. Especially since she's begun to suspect that her feelings are no longer completely her own.

    What did you love best about Red Lily?

    I love how well everything was wrapped up in the end. There were no lingering questions.


    What about Susie Breck’s performance did you like?

    Susie was wonderful. All of her lead female characters had such distinct voices that there was never a question about who was speaking. And her southern drawl was like butter.


    Any additional comments?

    It's been a long time since I've read or listened to anything by Nora Roberts. This was a great reintroduction!

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Would you listen to Bossypants again? Why?

    Yes! I love Tina Fey and hearing her perform her own book was a treat.


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

    Of course. But I ended up using the book as a reward for doing tasks I dislike. I let myself listen to the book while I folded and put away laundry and in the grocery store.

    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....

    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Rosalyn Landor really brought the characters to life. Her performance was flawless.


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

    To be honest, no. The first third felt like it moved so slowly. Towards the end I was itching to finish because I was dying to find out what was going to happen!

    Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

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

    I would only recommend this to someone who had already read the other books in the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Egwene was my favorite character. I love her strength and leadership.


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

    Egwene's final scene brought me to tears. I was so proud of her.
