There are so many memorable moments in this story. I loved the artifacts & cave scenes,. Also loved the concept that a machine from way back when could cause Tsunami's! WOW!!!
As far as I know, this is the 1st book I listened to by this narrator. He did a good job, delivered the story well, plenty of excitement!
Past & present collide with Mythology!
Excellent story! Well delivered. Loads of excitement. Murder, mayhem, mythology, puzzle solving, adventure, action-packed dangerous thrill ride!
Set back in the old western days, this book is about the life of a well bred woman (Elizabeth) from Boston, who suddenly finds her brother married which in turn makes her want to leave her home. Invited to come live in Sweetwater Springs, Montana by her best friend Pamela, Elizabeth heads west.
At first Elizabeth isn't sure she can handle the rustic life. Pamela has played match maker for Elizabeth with a banker named Caleb. In the meantime, Nick who is a godchild to John and lives on their land falls for Elizabeth too.
Travel along with Elizabeth as she learns how to cook and how to shoot. I love the old stories of how life used to be. Then one day Influenza returns to Sweetwater Springs. You will have to read this story to see how it turns out and who will Elizabeth agree to marry?
What a great story this was. The author Debra Holland had me on the edge of my seat so many times! OMG, can you imagine turning around to find a bear facing you? The narrator, Natalie Ross did a great job delivering this story to us too! Many multiple voices and added excitement in all the right places! This book is definitely one you want to hear vs reading! Great job ladies!
I really enjoyed this book about a young college age girl (Sam) who slept with the wrong boy and got pregnant. This boy Tucker when she told him she was pregnant not only didn't want the baby, but went so far to say "Don't even put my name on the birth certificate!". Now Sam is alone with a baby girl names Carrie (her little Care Bear) and trying to make ends meet with class and work.
One day Same met another boy & kept her little girl a secret from him. When Sam did introduce Judd to her daughter, Judd while surprised, really liked Carrie. Carrie in her little 2 year old voice calls him Dud (lolol). How cute is that?
A sweet romantic story about these people and the daily trials they go thru. The best part is the ending. I loved the ending! Another notable part is when Judd meets Carrie's real father by accident... You have to read the book to see where this goes!!!
The author, Bethany Lopez did a great job at capturing my interest and keeping it. The narrator, Bailey Varness did a fantastic job delivering this story to us with all her multiple voices - authentic and entertaining - very believable!
Another great hit in "The Club Trilogy" by Lauren Rowe! OMG, this book was great and the ending... O M G!!! I did not see that coming and I am dying to know how it is going to turn out.
This story, like in book 1 is H O T, sexy, exciting & suspenseful . What a crazy and exciting combination!
In this book, Sarah and Jonas love story continues right from where it left off in book 1. Sarah comes back to find her apartment had been ransacked and her best friend Cat's apartment also took a hit. Jonas does all he can to protect these ladies, but Sarah is determined nothing is going to happen. Jonas insists that Sarah stay with him and their love grows stronger by the day! Jonas even attends college classes with Sarah just so he can watch her. The one time he allows her to go to the bathroom by herself.... (you have to read the book to find out what happens). Bring lots of tissues!!!
The author Lauren Rowe captured my attention way back in book one. I couldn't wait till book 2 came out and now I am dying to read book 3! OMG, What an exciting story! The narrators, both Lauren Rowe and John Lane do a fantastic job delivering this story once again to us with all the voices and emotions and enthusiasm needed. This series definitely needs to be heard as well as read. The narration breathes life into it like a heart beat!
This is a quirky little story based in Flagger Beach, Florida about the comings and goings surrounding a local Kokomo Cafe. Have you ever thought about the stories a Cafe owner could tell or even any local tourist business? This book has several shorter stories in it all about characters that visit the Kokomo Cafe.
I quite enjoyed listening to these stories. My favorite tale was the one about the motorcycle guys with the custom made pool stick (the case made to look like a gun bag), and how it got the owner of the Kokomo Cafe all agitated
The author, Armand Rosamilia did a good job writing this book which got my attention from the start. The narrator, Jack de Golia did a great job delivering this book to us with all his different voices, accents and emotions. Good job guys!
Here we are in the fourth installment of the Mail-order brides. This book is about Darcy. A well to do mail order bride. Darcy only became a mail order bride as she is hiding from her half brother who wants her dead. Darcy received a letter while in St Louis from her maid from home saying her brother went looking for her, so Darcy heads out to Sweet Water, Montana where her friend Lina is living happily married. If Darcy marries then she has better control to her property her brother is trying to steal from her.
Darcy meets Gideon, a loner who homesteads way outside of the town. Gideon loves his solitude. Gideon is also an excellent woodworker.
I loved this book along with the other mail-order bride books. I especially like how the same narrator is in all the books. I love how characters meet and comeback too!
This author, Debra Holland does a fantastic job writing these books and captures the rough life, & the feeling of family, love and community in all her old west books. I love hearing of how times were back in the late 1800s & about how people survived back then. How different life was back then! The narrator, Lara Asmundson does a fantastic job as always delivering this story with her multiple voices and accents, along with tons of excitement.
I loved the ending in this book! I didn't see it coming and was hoping for a happy ending & I was quite pleased! Great job ladies!!! Until we meet again.
Set back in the late 1800s, we get to know another generation of the Raveneau's. Remembering in the last book with Adrienne and Nathan & Adrienne was with child. In this book, we meet Adam the grand child of Adrienne and Nathan. Adam's parent's died young, so Adam is raised in Barbados by his grand parents.
A young Adam Raveneau ventures out to the United States while Barbados is swamped with Small Pox. It is there that Adam meets Catherine Parrish, who asks him to marry her. Catherine is paired with an old man because he has a title and he doesn't even like her. To get out of marrying him, Catherine proposes to Adam, a total stranger - but she does like him. Adam stirs something up in her every time she sees him and she loves how he calls her Cathy!
Catherine marries Adam, much against her mother's wishes and set sail for Barbados. Cathy has no idea of the lifestyle she will live when she gets there or what condition the home is on.
Cathy also meets Gemma, who turns out to be an old mistress to Adam. Adam learns Gemma gave birth to a son too. We also get to explore for treasure and have picnics and lots of out door fun! Barbados is a wonderful setting for a story! The ending is fantastic too!
I loved this story and this entire series. I love reading about characters I remember from past books and can relate to the story better! The author, Cynthia Wright has had my attention since book 1! What a great series!!! The narrator, Emily Beresford as always did another fine job delivering this story to us with all her voices and accents! Great job ladies!
Here we are in book 3: His Reckless Bargain (The Raveneau series). I am so happy to see this series continue in the audio book format! I love stories that run in series with familiar characters! In Book 3, Andre & Devon's son Nathan is also a sea captain. He is in England when he is offered a job to guard a man's daughter and insure her safety and virtue until her 21st birthday which is 4 months away. Nathan in return for doing this job will receive 40 acres of land in Barbados that He has been wanting to buy, but couldn't afford. Barbados, what a wonderful setting for a story!
Adrienne Beauvisage is the young woman he is to watch over and protect. It is hate at first site when they meet again. The first time they met was an argument in the street. Nathan pretends to be Nathan Essex instead of himself so Adrienne will accept him easier along with the rest of the public. Adrienne has accepted a job to help Lady Thomisina Harms. So off they all go to the Lady Thomisina home where Adrienne is in so much danger that Nathan whisks her off to his ship and explains who he is.
His Reckless Bargain is a wonderful love story that blooms in front of us. I really enjoyed this book along with the first 2 books I also read in this series. One thing I absolutely love is the same narrator for the series. When I read a series, I get used to one voice and find the series most believable by using same narrator! The author Cynthia Wright once again does a fantastic job writing this love story from way back when! The narrator, Emily Beresford delivers this tale to us in a quirky wonderful way with all her voices and accents that are so entertaining! Ms Beresford is one of my favorite narrators!

The author, Lauralynn Elliott did a great job at capturing my interest. I found the story strange and very original and I quite enjoyed it! The narrator, Al Kessel did a great job delivering this story in such an exciting way. I loved the voice used for John! All in all, I really enjoyed this book! This is my first read by this author also my first listen by this narrator. Good job both of you!
This is a great little novella that packs a big whopping punch! Bring tissues, you are going to need them...
The year is 1885 back in Rocky Knob, Virginia. Sarah Miller, a young girl who is 16 goes to school and is paired up with Tucker O'Shay who is almost 18. Since the two of them are closest to the same age, they have to share the same books. Sarah and Tucker quickly become friends. Sarah learns that Tucker is terminally ill with cancer.
It doesn't take long before they start to fall for each other. Tucker is getting sicker and Sarah feels more and more for him. Travel along with this book way back to the old days when life meant so much and people had so little, but what they had and what they did meant so much to so many! We listen along as Sarah tells her sister Maggie about her Tucker and why she could never love anyone else!
What a fantastic story! The author Joanne Bischof captured my interest with the old west settings. The way she tells a story is to captivating and touching. Bring tissues though. I laughed along with Sarah and cried for her too! The narrator, Gail Shalan did a great job capturing all the raw emotions this story has to tell! I loved the voices I heard! Good job ladies!
How Many Old Ladies Will Die is a very enjoyable cozy mystery about a bunch of old women dying. Is there a reason for this or is there a serial killer on the loose? This is a Marge Christensen Mystery novel #5. This is my first listen by this author and this narrator. I truly enjoyed listening to this book and I particularly like how the narrator captured Grandmas mixed up words. Grandma had a possible stroke or something, they weren't quite sure what, but when Grandma tried to speak, all her words came out mixed up & garbled. Since Grandma had this happen to her, her daughter had her put in a home until she was better.
We follow along with Marge, Grandma, and some other family members (even a grand daughter) as they try to discover if Grandma really saw anything or if it was just in grandmas head. Many parts in this book are very creative & quirky. I even found some laughs in it. I loved how the cops always tried to get Marge to let them do the police work, yet she was always there one step ahead of them. Marge's husband is also a detective in Michigan and the detective on the case even asks Marge is her husband had any better luck keeping her out of his business (too funny). I won't go into too much detail as this will ruin the story! I will tell you I loved the story and the ending had me completely fooled. I did NOT see that coming!
The author, Patriicia K Batta totally captured my interest in this book. While I read the excerpt about the old women and murders, I couldn't quite imagine how it would all fit together. This book was so good, I read it all in one sitting! The narrator, Darla Middlebrook did a fabulous job capturing the aura of the characters! Like I said earlier, I was very impressed with her voice for Grandma the most! Kudos to you both for a job well done!
