I am a lifelong reader and I enjoy many types of books. My favorites are romance, historical fiction, and a little sci-fi thrown in.

    Lexy Newberry knows she's adopted, but someone forgot to mention her birth parents are 16th-century monarchs who sent her to the future to escape certain slaughter. Now Lexy is back in the past, charged with reclaiming her homeland. She's not the normal storybook princess, but Lord Lukas Reynard, the nobleman enlisted to help her, isn't a charming prince either. As her feelings for Lukas grow, she becomes torn between the place she knows in the future and the place she was born to rule in the past.

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

    I would recommend the book to read. It was a good story and I enjoyed not only the story of a girl from the present going to the past, but also the character's unfailing faith in God.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a wonderful love story.


    What didn’t you like about Renee Casati’s performance?

    She used a monotone the whole time. The sentences just blended together. It was difficult to understand when characters changed. Also, a girl from Dallas, TX would not have a British accent!

    I'm not sure. I've listened to many.

    The dog, of course!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I think I would be giving something away if I tell my favorite scene.


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

    There were several. This was an emotional ride.

    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    If you could sum up And One Last Thing... in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, real, and fun.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of And One Last Thing...?

    Lacey...she is such a real person.


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?

    Again, Lacey. She gave her a fantastic voice.

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Art of Racing in the Rain to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version, but I think the voice version brought the characters to life in a way that the print version couldn't.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Enzo, of course, was my favorite. How could he not be?


    Have you listened to any of Christopher Evan Welch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't heard any other Christopher Welch performances.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Art of Racing in the Rain and why?

    Again, that would have to be Enzo. I always suspected dogs were smarter than they could articulate. He just proved it!


    Any additional comments?

    Be ready to go through a full range of emotions...from complete happiness to heart wrenching sadness. This book delivers it all.
