    Story

    Christmas on Mimosa Lane was a good Christmas book and everyone need a holiday story. I liked Anna DeStefano's style of writing and would read other books by her, but I did find some of the scenarios hard to believe.

    If I was to compare Anna DeStefano with another author, it would probably be Kristen Hannah.

    Story

    Facebook had this scrolling on my feed the other day and when I read the blurb it looked kind of interesting, plus it was free. I thought what the heck, I like free. I bought it and discovered that the free part was only the first third of the book, which I find really annoying. Still I wanted to know what happened to Simon and Kara (well mostly Kara) so I bought the rest of the book (99 cents, can't even get coffee for 99 cents). Then because the whispersync version was only $1.99, I got that too, so I could continue knitting my sock.

    So what did I like about the book? The characters were pretty well drawn and both had compelling backstories.

    What I did not like about the book was the continual use of f**k, f**king, f**k me, etc., seriously, it seemed like if the author didn't use the word at least five times on each page, she went back and rewrote. We get that these two were hot for each other, but there are other words. And her description of Kara and Simon having sex were at times laughable.

    The narrator was pretty good, although I would have liked it more if she could have picked up the speed just a tad bit.

    I like my books to have a little more story, a little more character development, and just a little less crudeness. But that's just me.

    Cordelia Kane has always been a daddy's girl - her father raised her alone after her mother died in a car crash when Cordelia was just two years old. So when he has a serious heart attack, Cordelia is devastated, and the emotion is only intensified by the confusion she feels when he reveals the shocking truth about her mother. Cordelia can't suppress her curiosity about the woman who gave birth to her, and when she discovers the answers to her questions lie in Sydney, Australia, she travels there to get them.

    Story

    Cordelia always had a crush on her best friend's brother, Aiden, but it takes the aftermath of her father's death to bring them together. Along with a murder plot against her, because she seeks out the mother she thought had died when Cordelia was a baby.

    So the story is a little bit unbelievable, but I like how Julie Garwood brings this three part series to a close.

    The narrator was pretty good, the male voices were not as good as they could have been and she reads a little faster than I like, but I would definitely listen to her again.

    Rachel Lear lives in a dream world with her head in the clouds - and it’s starting to show. There’s the dissertation she can’t quite finish, the ex-boyfriend whom she has yet to kick to the curb, and those pesky 20 pounds she keeps meaning to lose. But when her overbearing father finally runs out of patience and cuts her off from the family fortune, Rachel finds herself thrust into the real world. She never could have guessed that’s where she would finally meet a knight in shining armor.

    In the last installment in the story of the Lear Sisters, it's Rachel's turn in the hot seat. As with her sisters, Rachel is cut off from the family money and has to make her own way. The trouble is, as I see it, her sisters were at least trying to be grown-ups when dad cuts them off, Not so Rachel, who is in her 30s and still kind of working towards her doctorate, while living in the house dad bought and not working at any paying job.

    Enjoyed the first book in the series, the second was interesting too, this one was just too long and the characters were just a bit dim.

Now Rebecca’s life is a perfect mess, one she’s determined to dig herself out of without a cent of her overbearing father’s money. She heads to Austin to start anew, volunteering for a friend’s political campaign to bulk up her nonexistent résumé. Only Rebecca never counted on working with a hotshot attorney who makes her see red - and feel sexier than she has in years.

    While I liked the narrator in the first story, she is now getting on my nerves. Every time the writer says so and so laughs, the narrator goes ha ha and I want to throw my phone at the wall.

    Other than that and the fact that the Lear Sisters appear to be self important snobs, I like the books and the character growth.

    Darcy's closest friend and fellow witch, Starla Sullivan, hoped she'd never see her ex-husband, Kyle, again. Two years ago he tried to kill her, and he has been a fugitive ever since. Now Starla claims to have seen him back in Enchanted Village, but it seems she's the only one who can see him. To everyone else, her ex is invisible. Darcy only wishes his motives were as transparent as the rest of him. Since the police can't arrest someone they can't see, it's up to Darcy to find the secret behind Kyle's latest disappearing act - before he does something they can't see coming.

    I really enjoy reading Heather Blake's books, I also really like the books she writes as Heather Webber. In fact, I had already read The Goodbye Witch when the audio became available and I purchased the audiobook thinking it was the one I hadn't read.

    Maybe it's because I've read these characters and have a preconceived opinion of them, but I was not thrilled with the voices the narrator gave them.

    At exactly 7:30 p.m., Walter Pettibone arrived home to over a hundred friends and family shouting, "surprise!" It was his birthday. Although he had known about the planned event for weeks, the real surprise was yet to come. At 8:45 p.m., a woman with emerald eyes and red hair handed him a glass of champagne. One sip of birthday bubbly, and he was dead.

    Sometimes the narrator can take away from the overall entertainment of an audiobook, but Susan Ericksen adds to the story.

    I put off reading to the J.D.Robb books for a long time (I mean it's sci-fi), until one of my friend convinced me that it wasn't the science fiction that makes the stories. She was right. It is the relationships between the characters and the murders Eve Dallas and her team have to solve.

    Things I don't like about the books; calling women sir, the sniping between Dallas and Summerset.

    A Lot Like Love has a great premise. FBI enlists the help of a billionaires daughter to cause a diversion so the FBI can bug a local business owner believed to be laundering money. In return, they will get her brother out of prison, where he is serving a sentence for hacking into Twitter.

    I liked the story and the characters were well drawn, but the narrator did not do justice to the male lead.

    I think I would recommend reading this as opposed to listening or, as I did, get the whisper-sync version so you can give the characters the voices you like.

    When empath Jade Calhoun moves into an apartment above a strip bar on Bourbon Street, she expects life to get interesting. What she doesn't count on is making friends with an exotic dancer, attracting a powerful spirit, and developing feelings for Kane, her sexy landlord. Being an empath has never been easy on Jade's relationships. It's no wonder she keeps her gift a secret. But when the ghost moves from spooking Jade to terrorizing Pyper, the dancer, it's up to Jade to use her unique ability to save her.

    This book was not as I expected, it was more like Charmed (the television series) although where the action is over in a minute or so with visual, this just went on and on. Also, for the first in the series, the reader/listener doesn't really get to know who they are.

    I'll admit I am a fan of the TV series and when this book was offered as a daily deal, I snapped it up. The book's characters and the series' characters have little in common. This might be because this is book nine and the series as only been on for one (or maybe two) seasons and the characters have progressed in their relationships. This disappointed me just a bit.

    That being said, A Serpent's Tooth was a great book and the narrator was very good. The plot was different from most mysteries and the locale is not the usual locale. Listening to this installment makes me want to start listening at book one, which says a lot.
