    For years I was often heard saying "Danielle Steel is my favorite author". However, I'm so sad to say I will never be heard saying those words again. I've havent been able to finish listening to her last 7 or 8 books! It seems that she now repeats things over and over, like she takes large portions of a particular chapter and just rewords them 2 or 3 times! It makes me sad to have to say goodbye but unless I hear she has made huge writing style changes, I wont bepushing "buy" for a DS book anytime soon!

    Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life - steady boyfriend, close family - who has never been farther afield than her tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life - big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel - and now he's pretty sure he cannot live the way he is. Will is acerbic, moody, bossy - but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected.

    Tessa and Walter have, by all appearances, the perfect marriage. And they seem to be ideal parents for their somewhat rebellious teenage daughter, Regina. Without warning, however, their comfortable lives are thrown into turmoil when a disturbing customer comes into the salon where Tessa works as a manicurist. Suddenly, Tessa's world is turned upside down as revelations come to light about the mother she thought had abandoned her in childhood and the second sight that she so guardedly seeks to keep from others.

    I listened for only a few moments and realized what a huge mistake I had just made! I have purchased several hundred audible books in the past couple of years and should know better than to purchase without previewing a book being narrated by someone i didn't recognize! Regretfully, I did not, and now, I am more than ashamed with myself!

    The story of a pole, searching for his purpose in life. "The perfect gift to give a child or grandchild for their high school or college graduation. Also Father's Day. Also, other times."

    I must be missing something! The reviews I read led me to believe that this book was far better than what it actually is! I'm very glad the proceeds are going towards our veterans at least! It's a cute little story, but the reviews seem to be exaggerating things quite a bit!

    What if wishes really could come true? It’s the question facing waitress Bree Walker when she awakens in the hospital following a blizzard in sleepy Panama, Vermont. While she can’t recall the near-tragedy that landed her there, she’s overcome with the certainty that she has been granted three wishes. One seems to have come true already: At her side is renowned author Tom Gates, the accident’s only witness, who came to Panama to make sense of his fame - and who now makes Bree his cause.

    I've only been able to listen for 5 minutes of this before shutting it off! The narrator speaks too fast I actually went to see If I accidentally pushed speed up key! What a waste of good money! Be sure to listen to the sample before you buy...!
