    Todd, the youngest of four children, has a developmental disability that keeps him at home on the farm with his mother and father. One special holiday season, Todd hears an ad on the radio from a shelter looking for temporary homes for their dogs during the holiday week. When Todd's parents at last give in to his pleas for this charitable cause, the family is faced with an entire shelter full of dogs needing homes.

    Gary L. Parks says: "If you love dogs, Christmas and Wisdom..."
    "Wonderful book, I absolutely loved it!"
    Overall

    This was such a heart warming story. It started out a tiny bit slow, but after a short time I was loving every minute of the book. This book made me feel such a wide range of emotions. At times I was chuckling and smiling and sometimes had tears in my eyes. It had such a wonderful ending. I would highly recommend this book to family and friends.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The best book club you’ve never heard of – but will be eager to join, courtesy of a full cast of true characters. January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she's never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb....

    Don't let the title of this book scare you away. I absolutely loved this book. This is one of those books that compelled me to look up the actual history for the period because I found it so interesting. The narration is in my opinion among the top 5 in all the 300 plus books I have bought through Audible.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Story

    I absolutely loved this book. Initially I was hesitant to even purchase the book because of the title, but I am so glad I did. I really enjoyed being transported back to the depression era and learning through the book a little bit of what it was like for some people then. I also loved that it made me think a lot about the way we treat the elderly, especially in our culture. We always forget that they were young once too. I also saw the movie, which I liked, but the book has so much more to offer.

    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    Ignoring her insistent best friend, some interfering do-gooders, and the ubiquitous dog Fred - not to mention her suddenly raging hormones - 40-year-old Nina thinks anyone but Alex would be a better bet for a relationship. But the more silver-haired stiffs she dates, the more she suspects it's the young dog-loving doctor she wants to sit and stay!

    When an unexpected inheritance elevates her family to the ranks of the aristocracy, Amelia Hathaway discovers that tending to her younger sisters and wayward brother was easy compared to navigating the intricacies of the ton. Even more challenging: the attraction she feels for the tall, dark, and dangerously handsome Cam Rohan.

    Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack...and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she'd learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member - and as his mate.

    Patricia Briggs is one of my favorite authors in this genre. I absolutely loved this book and the characters of Charles and Anna. I would recommend reading the short story in On the Prowl (not yet available through Audible) which introduces the characters and the story. You'll get a lot more out of this story if you know the history of the two main characters. This is a great addition for Mercy Thompson fans.

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.

    I love Julie Garwood's historicals, and was so happy that this one was narrated by Rosalyn Landor. She is one of my favorite narrators, and does the different accents brilliantly. Many of JG's books are narrated by Ann Flosnik, who is not my favorite. Overall, the book was a fun and entertaining read.

    Best-selling author Alison Weir turns her masterly storytelling skills to the early life of young Elizabeth Tudor, who would grow up to become England's most intriguing and powerful queen. Sweeping in scope, The Lady Elizabeth is a fascinating portrayal of a woman far ahead of her time - whose dangerous and dramatic path to the throne shapes her future greatness.
