    Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

    I thought it was a good story. Nice to see a teenage boy's point of view that isn't immature. Enjoyed the sound effects. Can't wait to read the next books in the series.

    Agent Franks of the U.S. Monster Control Bureau is a man of many parts - parts from other people, that is. Franks is nearly seven feet tall and all muscle. He's nearly indestructible. Plus he’s animated by a powerful alchemical substance and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity itself. Good thing he’s on our side. More or less.

    I was so happy to read Frank's story. This was one of my favorites. Larry Correia is a fantastic story teller. Once again, Oliver Wyman did a great job with the narration. I love how you always know who is speaking. If you haven't read this series, start with Monster Hunter International. Definitely worth a credit!

    Story

    I really enjoy the series but the narrator absolutely kills it for me. She sounds fine for women's voices but the men don't sound like men. Especially Dutch. There are so many great narrators who do great for both sexes. I wish this narrator hadn't done all the books. I could barely listen to the first two and had to read the actual books for the others. Sorry, just can't stand this narrator.

    I stopped believing in monsters long ago. But I knew I wasn't imagining things when I found one in my kitchen baking muffins. I'd seen him before: lurking in my closet, scaring the crap out of my five-year-old self. Turns out that was a misunderstanding, and now Maurice needs a place to stay. How could I say no? After all, I've always been a magnet for the emotionally needy, and not just in my work as a wedding planner. Being able to sense the feelings of others can be a major pain.

    Charlotte owns a Birmingham bridal boutique. But with her own wedding day approaching, why can’t she find the perfect dress - or feel certain she should marry Tim? Then Charlotte purchases a vintage dress in a battered trunk at an estate sale. It looks brand-new, shimmering with pearls and satin, hand stitched and timeless in its design. But where did it come from? Who wore it? Charlotte’s search for the gown’s history begins as a distraction from her sputtering love life. But it takes on a life of its own as she comes to know the women who have worn the dress.

    Beth Morehouse expects this Christmas to be one of her best. Her small Christmas-tree farm is prospering, her daughters and her dogs are happy and well, and her new relationship with local vet Ted Reynolds is showing plenty of romantic promise. But... someone recently left a basket filled with puppies on her doorstep, puppies she’s determined to place in good homes. That’s complication number one. And number two is that her daughters Bailey and Sophie have invited their dad, Beth’s ex-husband, Kent, to Cedar Cove for Christmas.

    Unless you've read the entire series, you'll be as lost as I was.

    If you've read the previous books then you get to see what happens to characters from those books.

    The story about Beth and Kent was predictable.

    Sandra Burr did a great job on narration.

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    I really enjoyed most of the book EXCEPT FOR THE END, it was totally unexpected. That's all I'll say about it.

    The use of two narrators was different than the previous books. It's interesting to see Tobias/Four's point of view.

    Both Emma and Aaron did a great job with narration.

    Former bounty hunter Rachel Morgan has it pretty good. She has left the corrupt Inderland Runner Service and started her own independent service. She's survived werewolves, shape-changing demons, bad-hair days, and sharing a church with her vampire roommate, Ivy. She even has a cute (if human) boyfriend - what more could a witch want? But living with a reformed vampire isn't all it's cracked up to be.

    Story

    I really enjoyed the first book but this one was a huge disappointment. I kept starting, then lose interest, start again, but in the end I just couldn't pick it up anymore. Rachel's whining was getting on my nerves. The thing with her roommate Ivy is plain stupid. It sounds like an abusive relationship with Rachel blaming herself for Ivy attacking her. Really? Don't see why they are friends. I really can't stand stupid people and Rachel keeps doing the stupidest things. I don't think I can continue with this series. I don't like being annoyed with the main characters of the books I read. The only good thing about this book was the narrator. I'm sorry I wasted a credit.

    Jace's return to Kansas is an instant reminder that there really is no place like home. The tavern is still brimming with losers, practical jokers, and motorcycle chicks. Even the town's only Goth is still wearing eyeliner. But just as Jace is about to click her heels and hightail out of there, she's roped into a brand-new case. Somebody is possessed. And the bodies are piling up....

    The story was extremely confusing. I wasn't sure what the heck was going on in the beginning. Then it made a little more sense. I heard it's the last book in the series and I feel it leaves you hanging. Johanna Parker was awesome as usual.

    Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he’s been left an old friend’s entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community’s destiny in his hands. Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.

    Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree.
