    Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind.

    Another GREAT book, this third volume. Nice and long.
    Narrator couldn't be better.
    Really looking forward to buy and read the other 3 books, when available at Audible, with the same narrator!!!

    An irresistible, heart-warming novel from the much-loved author of numerous Sunday Times best sellers, including A Walk in the Park and To the Moon and Back. Dexter Yates loves his fun, care-free London life; he has money, looks and girlfriends galore. But everything changes overnight when his sister dies, leaving him in charge of her eight-month-old daughter Delphi. How is he ever going to cope? Comic-strip artist Molly Hayes lives in the beautiful Cotswold village of Briarwood.

    Story

    I read in a review that: “if you love the Outlander series and or Charles Dickens, you will LOVE this book”. That did it for me and I spend my credit. Perhaps in comparison with Charles Dickens but the book you can’t compare with the Outlander series!!!!
    I stopped when I have listened almost 2 parts. Then I decided to read some more reviews. Mostly excellent reviews, however a few more like what I experienced.
    I also read: “Characters that appear and then disappear once they have served their purpose”.
    Then I thought why bother to listen to the other 2,5 part.
    Narrator did a good job.

    Olive Wellwood is a famous writer, interviewed with her children at her side. For each of them she writes a separate private book. In their rambling house near Romney Marsh they play in a story-book world - but their lives, those of their rich cousins and of their friends are already inscribed with mystery.

    I don't know if it's just me, but I couldn't get a good start in this book.
    I took this book because I LOVED Possession and the Children's book was a nice LONG book. However wayyyy too long for me. It seems.
    It took me ages to get listenend to the first 4 hours. I have started over and over again. I did tried, because I have read all those great reviews.
    So I think it must be just me!!!

    Believing that a good, interesting life is marked by quality, not quantity, John Steinbeck took note of his itchy feet and prepared to travel. He was accompanied by his French poodle Charley, diplomat and watchdog, across the states of America from Maine to California. Moving through woods and forests, dirt tracks and highways to large cities and wildernesses, Steinbeck observed America and the Americans with a humorous and sometimes sceptical eye.

    The story is nice. I like traveling through the USA.
    However I didn't dare to listen in the car while driving, because in bed after 5 minutes I was fast a sleep. It took me ages to get those few hours of listening ended.

    It's the stuff dreams are made of. Hollywood discovers a South Carolina orphan, Honey Jane Moon, and makes her a star. She lives a roller-coaster life. Now, though, she's all grown up, a child star no longer, but still dramatic and passionate. Two men, Dash Coogan, a cowboy movie legend, and Eric Dillion, the town's bad boy, know how fiercely she loves and lives. What Honey wants is the family she never had. She'll take the man who latches onto her dreams and who can hang on for the ride!

    Story

    The narrator did an excellent job (as always). However I was disappointed about the book itself. I though I had downloaded a nice Susan Elizabeth Phillips book. Great to listen to in bed, when I wasn’t feeling all right. However it wasn’t a story like all the other books of her. I clearly didn’t read all the other review before buying it. Otherwise I could have known it was a different kind of story. Definitely not a story ‘for escapism’ as I have read afterwards on another review.

    Facing crises of career and heart, two of the most powerful corporate figures in the Northwest are now borne by the currents of fate to the same small Washington town, and to their respective shops - a bookstore for Charity and a small curiosity shop for Elias. As Charity and Elias begin a cautious exploration of each other's pasts, hidden agendas, and libidos, they discover one thing they definitely have in common: a martial arts master, he's a novice at relationships; a formidable executive, she's starting in the mailroom when it comes to love.

    A good book, although I had to get used to the voice and pace of the narrator. She talks a bit too fast for me. The story is good and entertaining. I can recommend it.

    A lovely audiobook, well written and a very nice reading voice. I have listened to other audiobooks by Elizabeth Phillips and I like them all. However I would have known that this was the first in a kind of series. You can listen to them separately, but I would start with this one.

    Strong telepath Elle Drake has gone missing. Even her six magical sisters cannot find her. They all agree that she is alive and something terrible must have happened or she would have contacted them. Jackson Deveau, a deputy sheriff in the small village of Sea Haven, off the northern California coast, has known that Elle is destined for him. When she disappears, he gathers with his friends, Jonas Harrington and Ilya Prakenskii, and Elle's sisters to find her and bring her safely home.

    Overall

    When I downloaded this title I thought it was a nice light book about 7 sisters with magical powers. I have listened until chapter 5 and then I stopped.
    The book is all about abuse mentally and physically. I have just read more reviews and discovered that it is the last book of a series. Not worth my credit.

    Fate is on its way to the tenants of 66 Star Street, bringing with it love and tragedy, friendship and heartbreak, and the power to change lives... One of them is falling in love; another is torn between two lovers. For some, secrets they want to stay buried will come to light, and for others, the unveiling of those secrets will have tragic consequences.

    Kelly says: "Not quite typical"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I have been trying to get the hang of the story for many many days now. Rewinding many many times. I came to just 3 hours and I quit.
    It is totally not like the other Marian Keyes books. Very confusing with all those characters and only telling a short part of each then switching to the next. It is all about people living in the same building and a spirit is telling the story. Perhaps it will be doable when you can listen for hours at a time.
