    New discoveries in archaeology and recent bestsellers and movies such as The Da Vinci Code and The Passion of the Christ have sparked a renaissance of the many controversies that have remained unanswered in Christianity and other religions. At the heart of these controversies is Jesus. With a unique perspective only Sylvia Browne could bring, The Mystical Life of Jesus is filled with the details of Jesus' inspiring life.

    What did you love best about The Mystical Life of Jesus?

    How many answers Sylvia has that most religious leaders can't seem to answer.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mary....she's gotten such a bad wrap for thousands of years because of jealousy and men's attitudes towards woman in that day...and it hasn't changed much until recently.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Finding out what went on in the years from 12-30 in Christ's life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The crucifiction


    Any additional comments?

    If you have had guilt for years from the church as I have, Sylvia brings hope, love and joy and none of the fear, guilt and hatred about God.

    Jeremy Marsh is the ultimate young New Yorker. He's also an expert on debunking the supernatural. When he receives a letter from Boone Creek, North Carolina, about ghostly lights appearing in a cemetery, he can't resist driving down to investigate. Here, in this tightly knit community, Lexie Darnell runs the town's library. Disappointed by past relationships, she is sure of one thing: her future is in Boone Creek, close to all the people she loves.

    listened to it more than once, hoping I'd get more out of it, but the storyline isn't for me. Don't think I will purchase more from the author.

    There are few things Jeremy Marsh was sure he'd never do: He'd never leave New York City; never give his heart away again after barely surviving one failed marriage; and most of all, never become a parent. Now, Jeremy is living in the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, married to Lexie Darnell, the love of his life, and anticipating the birth of their daughter. But just as his life seems to be settling into a blissful pattern, an unsettling and mysterious message re-opens old wounds.

    What would have made At First Sight better?

    I have listened to the book 3 times and I just can't enjoy it. Feel the same about At 1st sight. Perhaps it's the author.


    Has At First Sight turned you off from other books in this genre?

    yes

    When Gabe Hamilton saw Mia Crestwell walk into the ballroom for his hotel’s grand opening, he knew he was going to hell for what he had planned. After all, Mia is his best friend’s little sister. Except she’s not so little anymore. And Gabe has waited a long time to act on his desires. Gabe has starred in Mia’s fantasies more than once, ever since she was a teenager with a huge crush on her brother’s best friend. So what if Gabe’s 14 years older? Mia knows he’s way out of her league, but her attraction has only grown stronger with time. She’s an adult now, and there’s no reason not to act on her most secret desires.

    Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Adam Paul?

    The other 2 male charactors might make it possibility, they were more likeable.


    What could Maya Banks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Charactors don't seems real.....A girl that smart and beautiful with a solid support system would not degrade herself like that.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I restarted this story 3 times before I fianlly got through it. Narraotors voice droned on and on.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Rush?

    All but the last few chapters.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first romance from Audible I've heard that is so raunchy and degrding to the woman. I need to check the reviews closer next time. I feel like I need a shower! Very disappointed.

There is terrifying danger and heartbreaking anguish to be over come....
