    You can't dance this dance unless it's in your blood.Claire McCall is praying it's not in hers. Claire McCall is used to fighting back against the odds. Hard work, aptitude, and sheer determination have helped her rise from adverse circumstances to an internship in one of the nation's most competitive surgical residencies. But talent and tenacity mean nothing in the face of the discovery that is about to rock her world.It's called the "Stoney Creek Curse" by folks in the small mountain town where Claire grew up.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The main character is really annoying at times. It is hard to like her. The reader has an ok voice but she really is not that great of a reader. I will listen to the others in the series just because I have a thing about not knowing the whole story. This one was painful to get through at times. But I think Claire might be getting more tolerable to. She finally got a clue by the end of the book and showed some maturity. So, I will give the others a chance.


    What didn’t you like about Katy Cole’s performance?

    It did not flow. Taking breaths in places that did not seems natural breaks in the sentences. She is not as good a reader as many other audible readers. It is not her voice that is the problem for me. Some readers just have a voice that I really don't like or don't fit the story. That is not the case here. I am sorry but I just think that Katy does not read well enough to be doing audible books.

    Darek Christiansen is almost a dream bachelor - oldest son in the large Christiansen clan, heir to their historic Evergreen Lake Resort, and doting father. But he's also wounded and angry since the tragic death of his wife, Felicity. No woman in Deep Haven dares come near. New assistant county attorney Ivy Madison simply doesn't know any better when she bids on Darek at the charity auction. Nor does she know that when she crafted a plea bargain three years ago to keep Jensen Atwood out of jail and in Deep Haven fulfilling community service, she was releasing the man responsible for Felicity's death.

    Story
    If you could sum up Take a Chance on Me in three words, what would they be?

    forgiveness, redemption, second-chances


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jenson


    How could the performance have been better?

    reader with a softer, less raspy voice


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

    when forgiveness happens


    Any additional comments?

    there were 2 spots that the author should have elaborated on a little more and given the reader what they were waiting for instead of just leaving it up to their imagination. I really liked this book but the reader's voice annoyed me.

    Stepping from a battered coach on a rainy April eve, newly widowed Elisabeth Kerr must begin again, without husband or title, property or fortune. She is unafraid of work and gifted with a needle, but how will she stitch together the tattered remnants of her life? And who will mend her heart, torn asunder by betrayal and deception? Elisabeth has not come to Selkirk alone. Her mother-in-law, Marjory Kerr, is a woman undone, having buried her husband, her sons, and any promise of grandchildren....

    Carrie Fancett Pagels says: "Exceptional AND Narrated by the Author!"

    This was a beautiful depiction of the story of Ruth from the bible. I loved this story and the narration was wonderful.

    A mother who cannot face her future.... A daughter who cannot escape her past. Lady Elisabeth Kerr is a keeper of secrets. A Highlander by birth and a Lowlander by marriage, she honors the auld ways, even as doubts and fears stir deep within her.

    Her husband, Lord Donald, has secrets of his own, well hidden from the household, yet whispered among the town gossips.

    Lynn Diener says: "Liz does it again!"
    "excellant narrator"

    Ms Higgs has one of the best narrators voices I have heard yet and I listen to many audio books. She has done a fine job in both the writing and the narration. Thank you Liz

    Brooke Martin and Nick Marcello, falsely implicated 10 years ago in a scandal that cost Nick his teaching job, meet again for the first time since then to redesign the stained-glass windows in a historic church - and the rumors start all over again, this time also including Brooke’s kid sister, Roxy.

    Overall

    I loved this story. It was everything I hope for in an audiobook. This is only my 2nd Terri Blackstock book and I look forward to listening to more of them. The readers voice was very pleasant but the only complaint is that her reading was not the best. It was a bit choppy--not smooth.

    When Joy Came to Stay illustrates the miraculous power of faith to overcome even the most debilitating suffering. Maggie Stovall has a successful career and a happy marriage, but she also bears the crippling weight of a secret from her past. As she slips farther and farther into depression, her only hope lies in God's loving forgiveness.

    Christine says: "Hopeful inspirational novel"
    "beautiful story"

    I love Karen Kingsbury and have listened to many of her books. This one was one of my favorites so far.

    I wish I would have listened to it with my husband because he would have really liked it too. Kept my interest all the way through---was a bit predictable but I really liked it.

    An FBI undercover operation gone bad convinces Rae Gabriella to move near her hometown and work as a private investigator with another former agent. But the small town of Justice, Illinois, is not as safe as she thinks. Attractive and stylish young women, just like Rae, are quietly dropping dead in their hotel rooms, with money and valuables still untouched. When the next victim turns up just a few rooms away from Rae's hotel room, the grieving parents hire her to investigate.

    Daisy says: "Before I wake"
    "not finished"
    Overall

    The story line was good and interesting and we enjoyed listening to it but the end was weird --like the author just got tired of writing and ended it before anything was resolved. So it left us very unsatisfied. For me if the end is bad the book is not worth my time so I would not recommend it.
