    Stacy Justice is your average small-town reporter...who just so happens to be a witch. She’s never had the time or patience to mess around with the magic her grandmother and great-aunts are into, even though Grandma says Stacy has a higher calling. Right now, Stacy has stories to cover, her cousin Cinnamon’s bar to help run, and her cute cop boyfriend and flatulent Great Dane to keep her company. But when someone sets Cinnamon’s bar ablaze - almost killing Stacy in the process - the green-eyed redhead will have to embrace her inner witch after all.

    Where does Opal Fire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I wouldn't say this was the best of the books I have listened to, but it was a fun read. I would recommend it to friends.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I can't remember her name but I liked Stacy's cousin that owned the bar. She wasn't a huge character but I liked her sassiness. Plus, I loved the aunts and grandmother.


    What about Amy Rubinate’s performance did you like?

    It took me a while to like her performance. I thought she sounded bored reading it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    At first I thought I would just skip the book and try listening to it later, but it continued to keep my interest. I found myself looking forward to seeing what happens next. Was surprised that I actually enjoyed it :)


    Any additional comments?

    I might continue on with this series. It did leave me wondering what will happen in the next book ;)

    "If you've been to Cedar Cove before, we've probably met. You can usually find me either at home or at the public library, where I work. I've lived in this town all my life and raised two daughters here. But my husband and I - well, about six months ago, he disappeared. Just...disappeared. Where's Dan? Why did he go? Who's he with? Will I ever find out?"

    Would you listen to Her Royal Spyness again? Why?

    I would listen to Her Royal Spyness again because I found it very entertaining and funny. I would probably hear new things I missed the first time. Plus, in my opinion, it would be a book listening to again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Her Royal Spyness?

    I thought the funny parts were Georgie's clumsiness and her lack of ability to clean and care for her needs.


    What about Katherine Kellgren’s performance did you like?

    At the beginning of the book I was beginning to wonder if I was going to enjoy listening to Katherine Kellgren's narration, but the more I listened the better I enjoyed her. I can't think of anyone better that could do the book justice. I would look for other books by her.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me laugh! I also found myself telling my husband bits of it, which I never do.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the characters and how the narrator portrayed them. I loved Belinda and Georgie's grandpa. I have just bought the rest of the books in the series.

    Meet Dolores Price. She's 13, wise-mouthed but wounded, having bid her childhood goodbye. Beached like a whale in front of her bedroom TV, she spends the next few years nourishing herself with the Mallomars, potato chips, and Pepsi her anxious mother supplies. When she finally rolls into young womanhood at 257 pounds, Dolores is no stronger and life is no kinder. But this time she's determined to rise to the occasion and give herself one more chance before really going belly-up.

    Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

    Would you recommend Saving Ceecee Honeycutt to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not. I thought it was an easy read but more towards the younger adults.


    Have you listened to any of Jenna Lamia’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any more of Jenna Lamia's other performances. i thought she did a wonderful job.


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

    I think you could...it was just easy to get into and each chapter had something different in it.

    Three words to describe this book....uplifting, frustrating (at times), sad. This was a good book...I like any of Francine Rivers books that I have read and this one is another one that I enjoyed


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Redeeming Love?

    I couldn't believe how much patience Hosea had...more than I would.


    What does Kate Forbes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I liked Kate Forbes but I thought her men's voices sounded so unemotional. All in all she did a good job.

    Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss, and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them, in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul, they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation.

    What made the experience of listening to A Thousand Splendid Suns the most enjoyable?

    I was a little hesitant about starting this book because I really liked A Kite Runner. This book is just a good as that one. It opens your eyes to the hardships of women in Afghanistan.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Thousand Splendid Suns?

    I liked most of everything in this book. There are more memorable moments than others.


    Have you listened to any of Atossa Leoni’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any other performances by Atossa Leoni. I would listen to her again.


    If you could take any character from A Thousand Splendid Suns out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would take Laila. I thought she was sweet, strong, and wise.


    Any additional comments?

    A must read and I really enjoyed Atossa Leoni and how she portrayed each character.

    I enjoyed all the characters in the book. Debbie Macomber rights fiction that you can find at least one character that you relate to or just fall in love with.

    I thought Sandra Burr read the book well. I would consider looking for more books that she has read.


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

    The only moment in the book that suprised me was the ending that left me needing to continue reading more of this series. Thankfully it was a good book and I will read the next ones.
