    A sophisticated, pause-resistant double love story spanning 40 years - an unforgettable Brief Encounter for our times. It is 1960. When Jennifer Stirling wakes up in the hospital, she can remember nothing - not the tragic car accident, not her husband, not even who she is. She feels like a stranger in her own life until she stumbles upon an impassioned letter, signed simply "B", asking her to leave her husband. Years later, a journalist named Ellie discovers the same enigmatic letter in a forgotten file in her newspaper's archives....

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Letter from Your Lover to be better than the print version?

    Jennifer of course. She went through so much.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Save the Date to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely! With the audio edition it's easier to understand the emotions and storyline rather than just imagining it.

    Liba - she seems like a very down to earth kind of girl but don't get on her bad side.

    Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life - steady boyfriend, close family - who has never been farther afield than her tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life - big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel - and now he's pretty sure he cannot live the way he is. Will is acerbic, moody, bossy - but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected.

    Would you listen to Me Before You again? Why?

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

    I laughed and I cried. What a emotional story this was. I listened to it on my 1-hr each way to work and back to home and couldn't wait to get back in the car to listen to it more.

    With her fiance now her ex-fiance, Ace has hightailed it back to Bugtussle, Mississippi, and back to her Gramma Jones's house. Her best friends, Lilly and Chloe, are delighted she's back, but Ace still has some challenges ahead of her. She is stuck working as a substitute teacher while harboring fantasies of running the art teacher who replaced her out of town. Lilly and Chloe are obsessed with setting her up on less-than-romantic blind dates - even though all she wants is a break from her pitiful love life.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It gave me something to listen to on my way home in the afternoons.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Let down.


    Could you see Down and Out in Bugtussle being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I could see all 3 books being made into a movie but I don't think it would last for a TV series.

    Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

    Would you listen to The Husband's Secret again? Why?

    I don't think so. I normally only read a book once. After the first you already know how it ends or what the "secret" is.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That the story was about 3 seperate families within a community.

    Grace Stanton’s life as a rising media star and beloved lifestyle blogger takes a surprising turn when she catches her husband cheating and torpedoes his pricey sports car straight into the family swimming pool. Grace suddenly finds herself locked out of her palatial home, checking account, and even the blog she has worked so hard to develop in her signature style. Moving in with her widowed mother, who owns and lives above a rundown beach bar called The Sandbox, is less than ideal. So is attending court-mandated weekly "divorce recovery" therapy sessions with three other women and one man for whom betrayal seems to be the only commonality. When their “divorce coach” starts to act suspiciously, they decide to start having their own Wednesday "Ladies' Night" sessions at The Sandbox, and the unanticipated bonds that develop lead the members of the group to try and find closure in ways they never imagined. Can Grace figure out a new way home and discover how strong she needs to be to get there?

    Would you listen to Ladies' Night again? Why?

    I think I have either read or listened to all of Mary Kay's books and the storyline is exactly what I like to read/listen to. She always has a sense of humor and it able to keep me interested by throwing a few little events I wasn't expecting.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ladies' Night?

    At the beginning when the car ends up in the pool.

    What did you love best about Fifty Shades Freed?

    It's hard to decide on just one. The entire series kept me on the edge of my seat, I couldn't stop listening.


    What other book might you compare Fifty Shades Freed to and why?

    Bared to You - along the same storyline but not as good


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    She was able to really be in each character she played without sounding the same.


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

    YES!

Everything has got to be perfect for her baby: from the designer nursery, to the latest, coolest pram, to the celebrity, must-have obstetrician. But when the celebrity obstetrician turns out to be her husband Luke's glamorous, intellectual ex-girlfriend, Becky's perfect world starts to crumble.

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

    When you read a book it's difficult to hear or feel what the character it trying to communicate. I loved that Rosalyn read the entire series. I don't like when they change narrator mid series.l

    Not me.


    What was most disappointing about Madeleine Wickham’s story?

    Not enough story to keep me interested. Yes, you already know how it ends before you start it but it would have been nice for the storyline could have been more intent, funny, compassionate, etc.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment

    Annajane Hudgens truly believes she is over her ex-husband, Mason Bayless. They’ve been divorced for four years, she’s engaged to a new, terrific guy, and she’s ready to leave the small town where she and Mason had so much history. She is so over Mason that she has absolutely no problem attending his wedding to the beautiful, intelligent, delightful Celia. But when fate intervenes and the wedding is called to a halt as the bride is literally walking down the aisle, Annajane begins to realize that maybe she’s been given a second chance.
