    Gail DeMarco left Whiskey Creek, California, to make a name for herself in Los Angeles. Her PR firm has accumulated a roster of A-list clients, including the biggest box office hit of all - sexy and unpredictable Simon O’Neal. But Simon, who’s just been through a turbulent divorce, is so busy self-destructing he won’t listen to anything she says. She drops him from her list - and he retaliates by taking the rest of her clients with him. Desperate to save her company, Gail has to humble herself by making a deal with Simon.

    I don't want anyone to look at this review and change their minds about buying it based on my opinion alone. This type of book is not my thing. It didn't have any suspense to hold my attention, but for the type of book it is there are a few things to recommend it. There are no childish games going on between the main characters. The characters are fine and it's believable. But I like more mystery, suspence and suprizes in my books So while I probably won't read it again it's no ones fault but my own.

    For more than a year, Sebastian Costas has been trying to unravel the truth behind the murder of his ex-wife and son. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, he's convinced that her second husband - a cop - committed both murders, then faked his own death. Now Sebastian has followed the slimmest of leads to Sacramento...and that's where he finally gets the break he needs.

    This is the second books of Mrs. Novak's that I don't care to listen to again but that I would read more than once if I could. I have not been able to read printed books for about 2 years now because of an eye disease so I rely on the audio versions. I'm not very picky when it comes to readers but this one ruins the book for me. She makes the book loose it's suspenseful edge and puts no proper inflection into the characters interactions. I wish it could be rerecorded with a different reader.

    Best-selling author Robyn Carr pens a captivating tale from her Virgin River series in Paradise Valley. Rick Scudder joined the Marine Corps with high hopes, but left with a broken spirit and a shattered body. Pushing away everyone close to him, he forsakes the help of his surrogate father Jack and his longtime girlfriend Liz. Now Rick must find the strength to let Liz, who’s never given up on him, back into his heart.

    This is not one of my favorites book in the series. The main couple doesn't even take up most of the book. It felt a little too much like a filler book. One that links two books in a series together. I still love the characters and the town so I'll keep listening.

    For Rose Gardner, working at the DMV on a Friday afternoon is bad even before she sees a vision of herself dead. She's had plenty of visions, usually boring ones like someone's toilet's overflowed, but she's never seen one of herself before. When her overbearing momma winds up murdered on her sofa instead, two things are certain: There isn't enough hydrogen peroxide in the state of Arkansas to get that stain out, and Rose is the prime suspect.

    This is one of those great combinations of runny, suspenseful and romantic. I like all of the characters and much of their interaction. I'm not that crazy about the expressions of dismay at times The heroine says things like "Oh crappy doodles") but otherwise find it enjoyable.
    The reader has a great accent for this book but her inflections get old fast. She raises her voice at the end of every sentence. It can get quite annoying, but hot enough so to spoil the book..

    This was the last book of this series to be put on audio. I have very low vision and can not read print so I was excited to see it. It was worth the wait! If you are a series fan as I am and you like your romance with suspense and a few twists, I recommend these books highly. I do think it helps to listen to them in order now that they are all here. The books do work on their own however.
    I love listening to Harry. He is one of my favorite readers!

    Returning to the lavish Chicago setting of her popular novel Paradise, and revisiting some of that book's characters as well, this story will captivate in inimitable Judith McNaught style. High atop a snow-covered hill, the stately old Wyatt mansion is perched like a crown. Such opulence means success and, surely, happiness. But on the eve of wealthy philanthropist Cecil Wyatt's 80th birthday, all the money in the world won't bring back his missing grandson, William Wyatt. The only thing for certain: Foul play was involved.

    Story

    I greatly dislike romances like this one that have misunderstandings that lead to more misunderstandings.... But the thing that makes me angry about this book is the TSTL heroin. She is so gullible, believing everything that people say. Which makes her vacillate throughout the book, and that leads to many TSTL moments There are a lot of times that I found myself saying "Oh come on!" or "REALLY, that wouldn't happen". The only thing that saved this book was the mystery parts. They are the only reason I finished.

    How can one little lie land Meadow Szarvas in such trouble? Sure, Devlin Fitzwilliam catches her breaking into his mansion to steal a precious painting. And, yes, in sheer desperation she tells him she has amnesia. But then he claims she’s his wife. As Devlin’s own treacherous agenda comes to light, Meadow finds herself locked in a match of high-stakes deception.

    Story

    The scenes with Meadow and Devlin's mom are really funny. I liked the plot and the romance was believable. I'm not usually a fan of the books that have the hero and heroine continuing to lie to each other, but in this case it was an important part of the plot. Plus it's the lesson of the old adage "What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive" . The narrator was not to my taste but she didn't spoil the book for me.

    I'm looking forward to the rest of these books coming out on audible. I liked that the hero steadfastly wears down the reluctant heroine. I enjoyed the secondary characters. But it the action and suspense that kept me glued to the book until the end.
    I have many books with Andrea Dawe and while she is not my favorite by far, she doesn't take away from my enjoyment of the books.

    I enjoy this author because the relationships in her books are clean and simple, the dialog is fun and there is some mystery and suspense. As Amanda Quick/ Jayne Anne Krentz/ Jayne Castle she does have a pattern to all of her books but I find this a welcome change after I read, say, Sandra Brown who keeps you on your toes.

    I listened to the later books first because they were the only available on audio and liked them all. This one was no exception. I like the characters and story lines of each book. The heroine in this one was brittle but still strong if that makes sense. Not an easy balance to keep.
    I'm waiting for the rest of the series to be put on audio. My eyesight is very poor and I can't read printed books so audio book mean a lot to me.
    I love Harry Berkely. I try not to let a bad reader ruin a book but when there is one you like this much it makes the book better.
