    The tree is decorated, the cookies are baked, and the packages are wrapped, but the biggest celebration this Christmas is Gaby Summerhill's wedding. Since her husband died three years ago, Gaby's four children have drifted apart, each consumed by the turbulence of their own lives. They haven't celebrated Christmas together since their father's death, but when Gaby announces that she's getting married - and that the groom will remain a secret until the wedding day - she may finally be able to bring them home for the holidays. But the wedding isn't Gaby's only surprise....

    Story

    I was very disappointed by this book. I thought that a book by James Patterson would have been far more superior. The plot was predictable and mediocre at best. The main character was self serving and self centered, very hard to relate with. I will say the narrators did a great job because they kept the story going.

    In the second installment of Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians series, when Marcus Grayden's grief over the loss of the woman he loved causes him to become reckless, he is assigned a new Second, who proves to be immensely distracting. Contains mature themes.

    I absolutely loved this book. I was not able to stop listening to it. I was so engrossed in this book I finished in a day. If you love romance, vampires, and steamy romance you will just find this book addicting. The story had suspence and intrigue which kept it from being predictable and made me unable to stop listening. I found myself sitting in my living room telling my family to just let me listen to my book. They all know my love for romantic vampire and supernatural genre so they respected my wishes. This book was addicting! I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.

    If you love dogs then you will absolutely love this book. It is written from a dog's point of view and it is very clever. The book captures the love and devotion a dog has for its owner as well as how innocent they really are. I could not stop listening to the book because it was so engrossing and upbeat. I highly recommend this wonderful book!!!!

    Story

    This was a wonderful book and it really touched my heart. The plot was great and I could not stop listening to the book because there were so many twists and turns and I had to know what happened. At one point when I was listening to the story in my car I missed my turn because I was so engrossed in the story. The narrator was terrific and she was able to portray each character so you could envision them. I must admit I needed some tissues to get through the book!. GREAT BOOK!

    Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon at a mission hospital in Addis Ababa. Orphaned by their mother's death in childbirth and their father's disappearance, bound together by a preternatural connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution. Yet it will be love, not politics - their passion for the same woman - that will tear them apart.

    Story

    The story line in this book was very interesting and unique. The unfortunate thing about the book is that the writer went off in many different directions in the plot and was extremely wordy. Once I got to about Chapter 25 the book moved faster because it did not drag as much. I feel that it was easier for me to get through the book because the narrator was excellent. If you have a lot of free time this is the book for you.

  • Beautiful Boy: A Father's Journey through His Son's Meth Addiction

    David Sheff's story is a first: a teenager's addiction from the parent's point of view, a real-time chronicle of the shocking descent into substance abuse and the gradual emergence into hope.

    Before meth, Sheff's son, Nic, was a varsity athlete, honor student, and award-winning journalist. After meth, he was a trembling wraith who stole money from his eight-year-old brother and lived on the streets. With haunting candor, Sheff traces the first warning signs, the attempts at rehabilitation, and, at last, the way past addiction. He shows us that, whatever an addict's fate, the rest of the family must care for one another, too, lest they become addicted to addiction.

    Story

    Within the first few paragraphs of the book I felt shivers up and down my spine because I could so relate to the pain and suffering that David Sheff felt. My son is an addict and David Sheff so perfectly described the journey and realization of addiction from a parent's perspective. I was so touched by this book that I am going to read Nic Sheff's book "Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines".

    You are about to travel to Edgecombe St. Mary, a small village in the English countryside filled with rolling hills, thatched cottages, and a cast of characters both hilariously original and as familiar as the members of your own family. Among them is Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired), the unlikely hero of Helen Simonson's wondrous debut. Wry, courtly, opinionated, and completely endearing, Major Pettigrew is one of the most indelible characters in contemporary fiction.

    I just loved this book and could not stop listening. There was action, suspense, and romance in the book. The narrator was able to make each character and individual and come alive.
