Probably within the next few months. Likable characters, romantic story line and not too many cliches..
Probably 96 hours by Georgia Beers, the author has a similar style of writing likable characters that are not perfect but are decent human beings looking for love.
No I have not, but I am sure to look for other titles narrated by her. She's was wonderful to listen to.
The travelling adventures of two amazing girls that fall in love in the process!
This book is a wonderful romantic escape, give it a try!
Love the story line from the beginning. If you are a supporter of the Death Penalty, this book might make you reconsider your position. The main character, Dani Trumball, is an attorney that works with the Help Innocent Prisoners Project, she is confronted with the decision of taking on a new case to defend George Calhoun, a man that is on death row and only a few weeks away from his execution. He and his wife were convicted of murdering their your daughter 17 years earlier, but claims that they did not commit this crime. What follows is an intense chase for the truth and evidence, filled with lots of interesting twits and turns. I stayed hours awake last night because I needed to hear the conclusion to the story.
The book it's at moments very intense, with many of the characters involved on a crazy chase for evidence in order to save a man's life, at the same time it has moments moments of introspection that make you think and consider (or perhaps even reconsider) your position on the death penalty.
I have enjoyed Tanya Eby's performances before, specifically narrating the Rizzoli & Isles series, but I absolutely love her voices on this audiobook, both males and females. She is the rare narrator that can incorporate many different characters of both sexes, without annoying you (at least not me!)
There's a moment where Dani is in the prison cell with George, just a few hours from execution, awaiting a decision on their request for a stay and it surprised me how emotional I became, it's a very powerful moment in the book...
If you like Legal Thrillers, you will probably enjoy this one, very much worth the credit!!. I look forward to more books by this author.
I wasn't expecting too much from this book considering the genre & price. I have to say that the story was surprisingly insightful, while at the same time providing some very hot scenes!!!
Perhaps because I could relate to the main character (married to the same man for many years, looking to "spice things up" between the sheets, etc) the story sounded pretty authentic to me.
The protagonist finds herself looking to push some new sexual boundaries, but she's afraid that her husband my react negatively and might reject her. As you might expect, he's more willing to be convinced to try new things than she realizes...
Just a quick, short, hot story that provides some insight into what seems to be a pretty common situation for couples these days: what happens when we come to have different expectations and the consequences of not being able to properly communicate them to our partner...Cheers & Happy reading!!!
I've a few of Linda Howard's books in my audio library (After the Night, Kill & Tell) and for the most part, I have really enjoyed her writing style. She brings a good balance between, action, mystery & romance to her novels. The romance aspect of the book is typically well done with a level of sensuality but in good taste.
I have to say thought, that I found Shades of Twilight's description of incestuous relationships very disturbing to say the least. The author didn't do a good at describing those relationships in a more critical light, but rather they are presented to the reader as almost normal and acceptable.
Ms. Howard is a great writer and she always does a good job at transporting you to the time & place where her characters are located but this one is by far my least favorite of her books.
Natalie Ross has become one of my favorites narrators, she brings the right level of emotion to the story without overacting. She also is one of the few female narrators that has a perfect pitch to handle both male & female voices (Let's face it; some female narrators sound very creepy when doing male voices!!)
If you are a fan of Linda Howard, you'll probably enjoy this book. If this if your Linda Howard book, I suggest you start with something a little lighter than this...Cheers and happy reading!!!
I actually adored this book. I enjoy audiobooks but it's not frequent that I found myself inmerse and lost in a story line, loving characters as well as a great narrator. Ms, Kearsley has that ability of transporting you to a different time and place that feels simply magical. The paralel romances feel authentic and porwerful without crossing a line into the tasteless.
I look forward so much to reading Ms. Kearsley new novel next(already downloaded it) If you enjoy romance as well as historical fiction, I am sure you'll love this wonderful book!
This is my 1st review in Audible even thought I've been a member for a few years now.
I found this book surpringly refreshing, candid and insightful. Ms. Gilbert writes openly about her experiences after a difficult divorce and her journey to rediscover herself and her true identity by traveling to three countries in search of Pleasure, Spirituality and Love. Eat, Pray,Love is the quintessential mid-life search for meaning and purpose that so many people faced at some point in their lives. I downloaded the 1st chapter to Committed (Ms. Gilbert's 2nd Memoir) and found it so interesting that I decided to start with the 1st book in order to understand her story better. I also liked her voice and thought that her narration was excellent. Highly recommended!!!
