    The unrelenting cheer in Fool’s Gold, California, is bringing out the humbug in dancer Evie Stryker. She learned early on that Christmas miracles don’t happen, at least not for her. And this year seems like no exception. An injury has forced her to return to the family fold, no matter that they’re estranged. She won’t add to the awkward scenario by being seduced by the bad-boy charms of her brother’s best friend, the last man she should ever want to date. Even when she’s recruited to stage the Fool’s Gold winter festival, she vows to do as promised, then move forward with her life anywhere but here.

    Recovering witch Garnet Lacey owns Wisconsin's premier occult bookstore. And a fringe benefit of the job is getting customers like Sebastian Von Traum - piercing brown eyes, a sexy accent, and a killer body. The only thing missing is an aura. Which means he's dead. And that means trouble - something Garnet's a sucker for....

    The best thing about the book was the narrator--love Amanda Ronconi. There were the technical glitches. Don't think I am going to try the next book by TH.

    Kate Lamonica isn't Koti James' type. Too small. Too dark. And heaps too much work. So it's an easy bet that he can be her friend for six weeks without making a move on her, no matter what his mates would have said. Kate can't believe she's made the bet at all. New Zealand had seemed like the perfect escape from the stalker who'd threatened first her peace of mind and then her life. She certainly doesn't need any more trouble. Why on earth has she agreed to spend time with a Maori rugby player who's far too handsome and charming for his own good - and knows it?

    Adelaide Davies, who's been living in Sacramento, returns to Whiskey Creek, the place she once called home. She's there to take care of her aging grandmother and to help with Gran's restaurant, Just Like Mom's. But Adelaide isn't happy to be back. There are too many people here she'd rather avoid - people who were involved in the events of that terrible June night 15 years ago.

    It took me a while to get into in it but then it got better--narrator did not help. I was hoping that they would go back to Amy Rubinate as the narrator. I still will read the next in the series--want to know what happened to the others in the group.

    I purchased this and the second in the series at a good price so I was not so upset. I thought it was a little unbelievable at times. Maybe this would have been better narrated by someone else. I kept thinking as I listened to it that the narrator needs to be reading a mystery novel not Romantic Suspense as this was labeled because he does have a good voice, just not for the series.

    I'm not going to get the next one in the series.

    What Jack needs is an excuse to leave town. Ever since rescuing four teenagers from a car wreck, he's been hailed as a hero and the attention is making him itchy, especially since his too-pretty ex-wife is back, angling for a reunion. He's always liked Emmaline. She needs a weekend date? No problem. So when they wind up in bed together, Em chalks it up to red wine and chocolate cake, just one impulsive night not to be repeated. But Jack's pushing for more.

    Great Series!! I've enjoyed the whole family, small town, everyone knows everybody. Never realized that a hero would go through so much but it happens. I look for books narrated by Amy Rubinate. She can changes those voices so well.

    I look forward to Connor's story. Not sure if he is next but I am going to keep looking for KH's next book.

    Lacey Daughtry's perfect weekend is interrupted by tragic news of her brother's murder in the line of duty. Plagued by a rash of mysterious phone calls, she turns to her brother's best friends and fellow officers for protection...and comfort. Spending time in close contact with Mason and Tyler, the two men she's dreamed of since her first girlhood crush, seems like the answer to a prayer. Especially when they begin to explore the desire she's harbored for so long.

    Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her. While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce," Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name.

    He's a reclusive writer whose imagination creates chilling horror novels. She's a down-on-her-luck actress reduced to staging kids' puppet shows. He knows a dozen ways to kill his characters with his bare hands. She knows a dozen ways to kill an audience with laughs. But she's not laughing now.

    The book was good but not my favorite SEP. No matter I am waiting on her next book already. I am going to listen again to make sure I am judging it right.

    But you know what is missing is a narrator that can pull off a punch line. Amanda Ronconi would be so great. I have suggested it more than one time, but they aren't listening.:) While Erin Bennett (much better than the previous narrator) was good, I still miss Anne (may she rest in peace) so much (she was the original narrator of her SEP books). She could pull off SEP's sarcastic punch lines and have you laughing out loud. No matter I am waiting on her next book already.

    I suggest to the powers to be to get Amanda Ronconi to narrate the next SEP book--hope it is soon.

    When Samantha Cross goes to her brother's employers to ask for help, she had no idea that it would change her life forever. To repay their debt, they both have to live and work at the Dakota Ranch for one year. Samantha has no option but to accept.

    Her brother's employers, Shayne and Jackson Montgomery, are not what she expected. Jackson, the younger brother is too handsome and charming to resist, especially when he sets his sights on her.

    Lisa Jackson's novels of romance and suspense race up the best-seller charts. In Left to Die, the Pinewood County Sheriff 's Department is on the trail of a cold-blooded killer who acts as a savior to women stranded during terrible mountain snowstorms before stripping them of their dignity and leaving them to die, a victim of the elements. But the killer's latest victim managed to escape, leading some to believe there may now be an imposter on the loose.

    I enjoyed, but I think it went too extreme especially towards the end. But when you think about it psychos are ridiculous in what they can think up so maybe not as extreme as I thought. I will say there was a great twist in the book that I did not figure out until we found out the actual person was. I do think the narrator got a little tired of it close to the end-maybe he should have taken a break in between--just kidding. Don't think he was a bad as some of the other reviews were.

    I am still debating as to whether I will get the next in the series, but know I am not going to go straight and get it. Going after something calmer first.
