    Suppose your life sucks. A lot. Your husband has done a vanishing act, your teenage stepson is being bullied, and your math-whiz daughter has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you can't afford to pay for. That's Jess' life in a nutshell - until an unexpected knight-in-shining-armor offers to rescue them. Only Jess' knight turns out to be Geeky Ed, the obnoxious tech millionaire whose vacation home she happens to clean. But Ed has big problems of his own, and driving the dysfunctional family to the Math Olympiad feels like his first unselfish act in ages...maybe ever.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one.


    What was most disappointing about Jojo Moyes’s story?

    Everything


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from One Plus One?

    Car ride.. Too long and too graphic..not compelling...


    Any additional comments?

    I am a long time purchaser of many audible books from you and only once asked for a refund.. and , out of respect for what you do, I will refrain from doing so this time.. You provide a wonderful service and have given me many hours of pleasure..No one is perfect
    but your come close..

  • I'll Drink to That: A Life in Style, with a Twist

    Eighty-six-year-old Betty Halbreich is a true original. A tough broad who could have stepped straight out of Stephen Sondheim's repertoire, she has spent nearly forty years as the legendary personal shopper at Bergdorf Goodman, where she works with socialites, stars, and ordinary women off the street. She has helped many find their true selves through clothes, frank advice, and her own brand of wisdom. She is trusted by the most discriminating persons - including Hollywood's top stylists - to tell them what looks best.

    What made the experience of listening to I'll Drink to That the most enjoyable?

    It was read in what seemed to be the voice of the writer with all smirks and smiles that you could imagine.

But who died, Sebastian or his best friend Bruno? When Ross Buchanan is forced to resign as chairman of the Barrington Shipping Company, Emma Clifton wants to replace him. But Don Pedro Martinez intends to install his puppet, the egregious Major Alex Fisher, in order to destroy the Barrington family firm just as the company plans to build its new luxury liner, the MV Buckingham.
