    Madeline, Avery, and Nikki are strangers to each other, but they have one thing in common. They each wake up one morning to discover their life savings have vanished, along with their trusted financial manager - leaving them with nothing but co-ownership of a ramshackle beachfront house. Throwing their lots in together, they take on the challenge of restoring the historic property. But just as they begin to reinvent themselves and discover the power of friendship, secrets threaten to tear down their trust.

    Would you listen to another book narrated by Amy Rubinate?

    Yes, it was interesting!

    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....

    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Strangers On Montagu Street to be better than the print version?

    Yes! Aimee Bruneau is a PERFECT Melany Middleton. She even does great with the other characters. I have my own image in my mind of each character.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nola! She has talent, but has a good perspective.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It was interesting reading how Bonnie would appear, but it is was suspenseful wondering where the dolls from the dollhouse would turn up next. Makes me wonder if that could have happened to the dollhouse I had as a kid! :)


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I have no idea.. not a good tag line writer... :) Sorry

    If you could sum up The Girl on Legare Street in three words, what would they be?

    Great Ghost Story.


    What other book might you compare The Girl on Legare Street to and why?

    I've read all of the other books with Melany Middleton.


    Have you listened to any of Aimee Bruneau’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to all of Karen White's books with Aime Bruneau. I wish she would do more!


    If you could take any character from The Girl on Legare Street out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Melany Middleton or Jeannette. Rebecca got on my nerves.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I'd known earlier these books probably should be read in order. I read return to Tradd Street as the SECOND book. Spoiler! ugh, now I know the ending.. :)

    In 2009, Susannah Cahalan woke up in a strange hospital room strapped to a bed, under guard, and unable to move or speak. Her medical records - from a month-long hospital stay of which she had no memory - reported psychosis, violence, and dangerous instability. Yet, only weeks earlier she had been a healthy, ambitious twenty-four-year-old, six months into her first serious relationship and a sparkling career as a cub reporter

    What made the experience of listening to Brain on Fire the most enjoyable?

    I had a similar reaction to medication several years ago. I could relate to some of her experiences.


    What other book might you compare Brain on Fire to and why?

    I have never read a book like this before.


    Which character – as performed by Heather Henderson – was your favorite?

    The main character, by far.


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

    I felt so bad for the character; that she unfortunately had to experience this traumatic event. However, I am thankful she wrote this book to share her story.


    Any additional comments?

    She was very brave for sharing her story. Thank you.

    What did you love best about What Einstein Kept Under His Hat?

    This is the first book like this I've ever read. I would like to try the other ones.


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is perfect for this book. I kept imagining HIM as the author.


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

    Various experiments that were actually tried and results reported.


    Any additional comments?

    This was interesting. I never imagined putting basic kitchen chemistry into a "Cooking for Dummies." version. It was pretty clever idea.

    More than 40 years ago, Mario Puzo wrote his iconic portrait of the Mafia underworld as told through the fictional first family of American crime, the Corleones. The leader, Vito Corleone, is the Godfather. He is a benevolent despot who stops at nothing to gain and hold power. His command post is a fortress on Long Island from which he presides over a vast underground empire that includes the rackets, gambling, bookmaking, and unions. His influence runs through all levels of American society, from the cop on the beat to the nation's mighty.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Godfather?

    The description of the relationship of the family.


    Which character – as performed by Joe Mantegna – was your favorite?

    The main character by far. I expected blood & gore, but it was not that by any means. The language was not that bad either, which I was glad about.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This was a long book. I had to take breaks, but it had me thinking about the story in between sessions of listening.


    Any additional comments?

    Much better than I expected. Hint: the next two don't hold a candle to this book.

    Who Asked You? opens as Trinetta leaves her two young sons with her mother, Betty Jean, and promptly disappears. BJ, a trademark McMillan heroine, already has her hands full dealing with her other adult children, two opinionated sisters, an ill husband, and her own postponed dreams - all while holding down a job as a hotel maid. Her son Dexter is about to be paroled from prison; Quentin, the family success, can't be bothered to lend a hand; and taking care of two lively grandsons is the last thing BJ thinks she needs.

    Where does Who Asked You? rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I didn't really have a favorite character.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    They were all performed very well. I couldn't really say which one was the best.


    If you could take any character from Who Asked You? out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Tammy. She is able to see what is going on pretty much all around.


    Any additional comments?

    This was pretty much up front and honest about two boys being cared for by their grandmother living on a restricted income. It made me realize that what they referred to as "the hood" was really just a normal community with people working hard just trying to get by the best they can.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this book to all my friends. I teach middle school Language Arts. We talk about characteristics of Southern Gothic all the time. (I realize this does not fit entirely into this genre). My husband and I go to Charleston frequently.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the history of the old house. The characters were well flushed out.


    Which character – as performed by Aimee Bruneau – was your favorite?

    Melanie Middleton. There wasn't enough description of Jack to know his entire personality.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, or I sure tried.


    Any additional comments?

    It would be interesting to perhaps write from Jacks perspective, or maybe from one of the other characters (after you've read Return to Tradd Street.) if you've read this, read Th e Girl from Lagare Street and THEN Return to Tradd Street. Happy reading.

    What other book might you compare Return to Tradd Street to and why?

    This series reminds me almost of southern Gothic. I can't think of other books like this, but I can tell you I really enjoyed this. I just wish I knew to read Girl From Lagare Street before I read this one..


    What about Aimee Bruneau’s performance did you like?

    I loved her accent. She was spot on.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!!!!! I love this series. I have one more book to read from this author in my library.

    I wish I had known ahead of time to read The Girl From Lagare street before reading this one.

    Once upon a time four aspiring authors met at their very first writers' conference. Ten years later they're still friends, survivors of the ultra-competitive New York publishing world. Mallory St. James is a workaholic whose best sellers support a lavish lifestyle. Tanya Mason is a single mother juggling two jobs, two kids, and too many deadlines. Faye Truett is the wife of a famous televangelist and the author of inspirational romances: No one would ever guess her explosive secret.

    A group of women that all have writing in common come together for a writing awards ceremony. They are all facing difficult situations and possible failing writing careers. These women become supportive of each other as they come to understand the challenges that each other face.


    What other book might you compare The Accidental Bestseller to and why?

    Ten Beach Road and Ocean Beach just because it discussed the lives of four completely diffferent people.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Perhaps looking into the life of the character that lived with her mother and children.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not as much as I did the other books.


    Any additional comments?

    I was slightly disappointed in this book. Perhaps because I had high hopes compared to the other two books I'd read. It is still a good read and I would recommend it, just not as highly as the other ones.
