    With her long ponytail and sparkling green eyes, Tessa Donovan looks more like the girl next door than a businesswoman - or a heartbreaker. Which may explain why Detective Luke Asher barely notices her when he arrives to investigate a break-in at her family’s brewery. He’s got his own problems - starting with the fact that his partner, Simone, is pregnant and everyone thinks he’s the father.

    Story

    Good Girls Don't by Victoria Dahl is a light, fun and entertaining romantic comedy that I really enjoyed. The Donavan family trio (Eric, Jamie and Tessa) is very relatable, and while the problems they face may not be, their reactions to circumstances are. They love each other and the level of commitment they share with one another is fundamental to the theme/plot, making this book work.

    Lauren Fortgang did a very good job with the narration. Her voices were easy to listen to and distinguished characters nicely.

    I did find parts that were laugh-out-loud funny, and even teared up (briefly) when Tessa confessed her woes to her oldest brother, Eric.

    This book is for mature audiences as it is pretty steamy with some graphic love scenes. Overall, however, it is a cute, funny story, that will entertain.
    Credit worthy...yes!

Luckily, maid of honor Blake O'Hara Heart is on the job. She'll tackle this wedding if it's the last thing she does!

    With her hair perfectly coiffed, nails freshly manicured and a heavy trail of perfume wafting behind her, local news reporter Dallas Dubois is sure she's about to kick her career - and maybe her love life - into high gear. The director of the Tuscaloosa children's Christmas play has fallen ill, and Dallas is ordered by her station manager to take the reins. Everyone is shocked - especially Cal Hollingsworth, who still remembers her as the Ice Queen from high school.

    Meet the Sassy Belles. They're strong as a mint julep, sweet as peach cobbler, and no matter what, they stick together. There are only two seasons in Tuscaloosa - football and waiting-for-football. When Lewis Heart, football announcer and voice of the Crimson Tide, vanishes after an impromptu romp with Vivi Ann McFadden at the Fountain Mist Motel, Vivi does what any Southern woman would do: Call her best friend, Blake O'Hara Heart, attorney-at-law.

    The Highlands of Scotland, Autumn 1344..... She had won his heart without trying... and he can only pray for the chance to give her his. When Findley McKenna returns after his battle with the English to offer Maggy Boyle a home amongst his clan, he finds only death and destruction instead of the young widow who has stolen his heart. The only things left of her home is the burned out hut and decaying bodies of the auld people Maggy has taken care of for the past three years. With only a prayer, his Highlander heart, and a bit of bloodied plaid to cling to, Findley will crawl through hell if he must, in order to find Maggy and her sons and avenge the massacre before him.

    Story

    Ok. so I loved the first installment of The Clan MacDougall Series, and although I finished this second in the series, wanting to know how it would end...I didn't like it. I was so disappointed. I hated the narrator, Brad Wills. He sounds like he is yelling the whole time, and his voices for the women is very unappealing. So sorry to give this negative review, especially when the review I gave for Book 1 was so good. This goes to show the importance of choosing the right narrator. Had she chosen Erin Jones, (Narrator of Book 1), perhaps this review would have been different. Unfortunately, Brad Wills narrates the rest of the series, which means that I will not be purchasing.
    Credit worthy? NO!

    A Gentle Rain by Deborah Smith was my first of her books to read, and what an amazing gift it was. I bought this book on sale, and it will not be the last of Ms. Smith's books that I treat myself to. I loved it. Precious characters that were developed well, very nice plot that came back to itself nicely. Smart. Fun. Lovely.

    Some small towns grow really good-looking men! This is the case with the four Chase brothers. The homegrown hotties are on the wish list of every single woman in town and Maggie Wright is no exception. Maggie has finally had it with the men she's been dating but a spilled plate of chili cheese fries drops Shane Chase right into her lap. The sheriff is hot stuff but was burned by a former fiancée and is quite happy to play the field. After Shane's skittishness sends him out the door, Maggie realizes that Kyle Chase has had his eye on her from the start.

    In the fall of 1984, high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths.

    O.K. It is Nicholas Sparks...he is an amazing story teller. I gave the story 5 stars, which, in terms of story telling, it deserves. The Best of Me is quality writing, with outstanding character development, and storyline...but, I have to ask myself...did I come away with anything? The answer is an absolute "no", unless feeling depressed is something to brag about. On the one hand, I love the way he describes the characters and situations, although the ending was very predictable. Sean Prat has a great voice and does an amazing job of narration.
    Nicholas Sparks will not be on my short list of books to purchase anymore...
    Don't waste your credit - unless you are in the mood to feel basically hopeless...
