    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No...just did not get sucked in...


    What could Jennifer Probst have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't really know...it just missed the special something that makes me want to go in that book's "world".


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

    She made it so the words were not so much "lost in translation".


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No

    Gwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams. He's hot, he's sexy, and what started as a no-names-exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half-long pleasure fest. Sure, it's a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he's the one, she just can't turn him away…. Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She's gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone.

    Andi and David have settled happily into Andi's Northampton home, but David wants more. He wants them to get married. But their discussion is put on hold when Wylie, a fifteen-year-old girl, shows up in their backyard, bearing news that takes David’s mind off the future and sends it spiraling into the past. Reeling from David's news, Andi receives a startling announcement of her own, one that leads to a relationship with her estranged mother. As Andi and her mother get closer and Wylie weaves her way into their lives, Andi finds solace in an old comfort: her ex-fiancé.

    Strange book to finish the story I loved. Glad I read it (would not have liked it if it was an independent book) but didn't like it like I did the others.

    When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she doesn't think it's love at first sight. They wouldn't even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn't want love, she doesn't have time for love, so that just leaves the sex.

    Heather Wells is used to having her cake and eating it too, but this time her cake just might be cooked. Her wedding cake, that is. With her upcoming nuptials to PI Cooper Cartwright only weeks away, Heather's already stressed. And when a pretty junior turns up dead, Heather's sure things can't get worse - until every student in the dorm where she works is a possible suspect, and Heather's long-lost mother shows up. Heather has no time for a tearful mother and bride reunion. She has a wedding to pull off and a murder to solve.

    Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow's only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she'd like. Running all their daylight errands - from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg - gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship - and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

    When three South Yorkshire friends picnic on top of an ancient fertility symbol, who could have known that within four months they would all have their own eggs fertilised! For Helen, pregnancy is a true come true. But the more the baby grows inside her, the more she can see her outwardly perfect marriage crumbling. For career-woman Janey, it is a nightmare. How could it have happened? She had her husband George, ecstatic at the prospect of being a dad, were always so careful over contraception.

    No. It was a fine book to listen to once. Just was not a "wow" book.

    Having babies? No...I have 2 and I am done!


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

    It was cute hearing about the pregnancy of the girls.


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

    She did fine.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    What about Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance did you like?

    They we perfect for the parts. Easy listen. I have told people this is a must read book but the audio will be more fun.


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

    It's a spoiler so I can't say.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't like books/movies about murder that will freak me out so I dont read them but I liked this a lot so now I will open up my genre search.
