    It's been 12 years since Jenny Wilks lost her fiancé in the 9/11 attacks in New York City. Since then she's been floundering, trying to find her way. Taking the job as lighthouse keeper on Gansett Island was the best thing she could've done for herself. On the island she's found amazing friends and a wonderful new life. There's only one thing missing and that's romance. She's recently asked her new friends to fix her up with some of the island's more eligible men. While her friends are busy arranging dates for her, Alex Martinez comes to cut the grass at the lighthouse.

    Mary says: "Enjoyable listen."

    Being confronted on the beach by a sexy stranger wasn't part of Natalie Conner's plans for a peaceful morning taking photos. And why on earth would he think she's taking pictures of him, anyway? Who is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s hot, and incredibly romantic, feeding Natalie’s wounded soul.

    Drew Evans is handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed? He’ll tell you he has the flu. But we all know that’s not really true. Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin.

    Story
    What would have made Tangled better?

    I didn't like the way the story was told. There was alot of cussing which I can understand but sometimes it was not necessary. Everything seemed forced in this book. For example, when Drew finally sleeps with Katherine he realizes "I love her" when he is inside of her. Now is that true sentiment or desire. I am not buying the story.


    What could Emma Chase have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It doesn't.


    What three words best describe Sebastian York’s voice?

    overplayed, forced, Cliche.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Tangled?

    I don't know. Everything was so short lived and forced nothing was really elaborated.

    Eveline Armstrong is fiercely loved and protected by her powerful clan, but outsiders consider her "touched." Beautiful, fey, with a level, intent gaze, she doesn't speak. No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty -unprepared for the delights to come.

    Story
    Would you listen to Never Seduce a Scot again? Why?

    Yes, Absolutely. It was such a great story. It was suprisingly captivating so much that you wanted to cheer for Evelyn overcoming all obstacles.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Never Seduce a Scot?

    The most suprising moment was when Evelyn runs away admiting defeat finding out she had been made a fool from the people of her new clan. She is out in the fields when someone injures her husband, she overcomes her fear of horses and goes to get help screaming at the top of her lungs to the point of injury(she had not spoken for 3 years). She is dropped by the horse and gets back up again and leads the men to her husband. She stays 4 days by his side with no food, sleep, or bathing. When her husband comes too, she quickly crumbles to accept are her needs and pain she had been avoiding. When the healer checks her she is black and blue all over her body. Evelyn is a great example of a determined woman!


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

    Yes, All the details and descriptions. This book was viewed as a movie in my mind. That's how I know.


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

    Yes, I was crying and cheering for Evelyn.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, I want more!

    England, 1959: Laurel Nicolson is 16 years old, dreaming alone in her childhood tree house during a family celebration at their home, Green Acres Farm. She spies a stranger coming up the long road to the farm and then observes her mother, Dorothy, speaking to him. And then she witnesses a crime.

    Story
    Where does The Secret Keeper rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is great! The story unfolds through Laurel the daughter of Dorothy, who is trying to uncover her mother’s past; now, that she lay in her dying bed with brief recollection of her past. Including how she killed a man and no one spoke of it ever again. The plot thickens with Vivian being the key to the past and 30 years later the story unravels opening the secrets of the past in a developing shocker. Laurel's mother has hid a secret identity. Oh my, what a great story with all the twist and turn. Nice read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Laurel, the daughter was my favorite character. She is a famous actress who downplays her famous persona, but is not afraid to dig and dig until she gets to the bottom of the story.


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lee – was your favorite?

    I would have to say Dorothy was my favorite performance because Ms. Lee made her sound bratty, a little crazy, and annoying just as the books describes her.


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

    Yes, when it is revealed that Vivian dismissed Dorothy in fear of her husband beating her for having friends. Also, the moment when Vivian meets with Jimmy and he notices a bruise and shows concern. It’s nice because this is where you realize the characters are quite fond of each other.


    Any additional comments?

    I was left a little confused as to why and How Jimmy survived and why he couldnt be with Vivian.

    Where does Lean In rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book was great, very empowering as a woman. It gave me the tools to have a different mindset when heading out in the workforce. Towards the end of the book there was a lot of talk about kids and a working executive mother and the difficulties. I have no children so this part dragged for me. Overall very motivating and eye opening to see how woman talk themselves down in the workforce.
