    Montana Hendrix has found her calling: working with therapy dogs. With a career she loves in a hometown she adores, she’s finally ready to look for her own happily ever after. Could one of her dogs help her find Mr. Right... or maybe Dr. Right? Surgeon Simon Bradley prefers the sterility of the hospital to the messiness of real life, especially when real life includes an accident-prone mutt and a woman whose kisses make him want what he knows he can’t have.

    I just love this series and the way Susan Mallery weaves the lives of her characters. Tanya Eby is a great narrator.
    I promise, you won't be disappointed in this book and the entire series.

    Just could not get into to this book. The narrator doesn't give enough voice differences to know which character is speaking. Had to quit listening after an hour.

    Thirty-four-year-old Ruby Bridge is a not-too-successful comedienne who uses her mother, a nationally-syndicated "moral and spiritual counselor" as the main fodder for her cynical, rather bitter humor. Her mother Nora, long divorced from Ruby's father, is a woman whose past is just about to catch up with her - in the form of blackmail by a former lover.

    Story

    This book reminds you not to judge a book by the cover, or a person by a photograph. Written in a wonderful way not to judge other people, because we don't know their history and the why or how they got to where they are in life.
    The characters were real and genuine. Kirsten Hannah is one of the best story writers of our time!

    After growing up in cheap motels, moving from town to town with her sister and mother, Cheyenne Christensen is grateful to be on her own. She’s grateful, too, for the friends she found once her family settled in California. But she’s troubled by the mystery of her earliest memories, most of which feature a smiling blonde woman. A woman who isn’t her mother. Although Cheyenne has repeatedly asked for explanations, the people who could help aren’t talking.

    I was disappointed in When Snow Falls after listening to When Lightening Strikes. It was a bit a drag. I finished it out and I'm glad I did, but the story line was a little depressing. I just kept wanting the story to get on with it and come to the satisfactory resolution.

    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    This book is hilarious! I was actually laughing out loud in the car, driving! I love the antics, funny phrases and dynamics of the characters. For any female that has gone through a divorce, you will totally relate.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of And One Last Thing...?

    The newsletter and how Lacey comes to polite grips of her emotions.

    The youngest of three daughters, Angela DeSaria Malone was always "the princess" of the family, a girl who thought she knew how her life would unfold. High School. College. Marriage. Motherhood. That was how it had gone for her sisters, her cousins, her friends. But it didn't work out that way for Angie. She and her husband tried desperately to have a child; year after year, their perfectly decorated nursery remained empty. Finally, their marriage collapsed under the weight of lost dreams.

    Oh Yes! The story goes through so many emotions and ends the way I expected, but it is a truly wonderful book. A true love story, family love story.


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

    My favorite part was when the husband comes back and how he embraces Lauren.

    Stephen Leeds, AKA 'Legion,' is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae: hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills. As the story begins, Leeds and his 'aspects' are drawn into the search for the missing Balubal Razon, inventor of a camera whose astonishing properties could alter our understanding of human history and change the very structure of society.

    We found the first part of this story a little confusing and had to really pay attention.
    After we got into it, the story line was very interesting. The way the Brandon Sanderson wove the characters was very unique.

    Seventeen-year-old Lennie Walker, bookworm and band geek, plays second clarinet and spends her time tucked safely and happily in the shadow of her fiery older sister Bailey. But when Bailey dies abruptly, Lennie is catapulted to center stage of her own life — and, despite her nonexistent history with boys, suddenly finds herself struggling to balance two. Toby was Bailey’s boyfriend; his grief mirrors Lennie’s own. Joe is the new boy in town, a transplant from Paris whose nearly magical grin is matched only by his musical talent.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Distant Shores to be better than the print version?

    I always like audible books better than reading a print version. I'm a multi-tasker and can't sit still long enough to read a print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Distant Shores?

    The ending. I don't want to spoil the end for those that haven't listened to the book or read it, so I will just say that the ending is refreshing, loving and encouraging.
    I am also and artist, so I was able to relate to the main character and her struggles in losing herself and fighting to find her passion again.


    What about Bernadette Quigley’s performance did you like?

    Wonderful! Loved the way she performed each character, especially the daughters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    You will enjoy this book whether you listen to it or read the print version. Kristin Hannah is one of my favorite authors and I have never been disappointed in any of her books

    Locked in an unexpected land dispute, Rafe Stryker is trapped in the one place he vowed never to return to - the Castle Ranch in Fool’s Gold, California. He made millions facing ruthless adversaries in the boardroom, but nothing could’ve prepared him to go head-to-head against stubborn, beautiful Heidi Simpson. No one is more surprised than Rafe to discover that he’s finding Heidi - and life as a cowboy - much more compelling than he wants to admit. Soon they’ll discover that summer love can last a lifetime.

    If you could sum up Summer Days in three words, what would they be?

    Susan Mallery has created a wonderful series and "Summer Days" is another wonderful creation. If you are listening to the series, don't miss this book. If you haven't listened to the series, now is the time to start and stay engaged with story line, characters and the wonderful town of Fools Gold.
