    Min Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairy tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet. Cal Morrisey knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs. When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again. But Fate has other plans.

    an easy listen, loved the highlight of how mothers can have such high expectations of their daughters that are so unreasonable. Crusie did a great job of satire with the mother. One of Crusie's better books.

    Collected in one volume-and on audio-for the first time, The Unremarkable Heart and Other Stories features bestselling author Karin Slaughter at her best: dark, provocative explorations of love, death, and the secrets we keep. This exclusive audiobook contains the previously published tales The Unremarkable Heart, The Blessing of Brokenness, Necessary Women, The Mean Time, Cold Cold Heart, and the never-before-seen story The Truth About Pretty Girls.

    Story

    The stories are well written, but VERY dark in nature. It was not what I consider "entertainment". I had to skip some of the stories due to the subject matter. Is our world as horrible and ugly as the author describes... yes, but do we really want to read/listen to the intimate accounts of it. Not I. I tried to give it a good listen, but could not finish it.

    The book is certainly written in a different style, one letter, memorandum, email, divorce code at a time to unfold a wonderful story. I enjoyed the story, the different style was a delightful change to the usual and worked perfectly with the multi-dimensional story line. Having the different performers was genius and matched the style. I look forward to more books from Susan Rieger.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Amy Gallup is an aging novelist and writing instructor living in Escondido, California, with her dog, Alphonse. Since recent unsettling events, she has made some progress. While she still has writer's block, she doesn't suffer from it. She's still a hermit, but she has allowed some of her class members into her life. She is no longer numb, angry, and sardonic: she is merely numb and bemused, which is as close to happy as she plans to get. Amy is calm. So, when on New Year's morning she shuffles out to her backyard garden to plant a Norfolk pine, she is wholly unprepared for what happens next. Amy falls down.

    >The Chaperone is a captivating novel about the woman who chaperoned an irreverent Louise Brooks to New York City in 1922, and the summer that would change them both. Only a few years before becoming a famous actress and an icon for her generation, a 15-year-old Louise Brooks leaves Wichita to make it big in New York. Much to her annoyance, she is accompanied by a thirty-six-year-old chaperone who is neither mother nor friend. Cora Carlisle is a complicated but traditional woman with her own reasons for making the trip.

    Story

    I was drawn to this book and had it in my wish list for over 6 months because it wasn't the style of book I normally enjoy. I finally took it on and could not stop listing. It was excellent in so many ways. The author did quite a bit of research to pull the book off so flawlessly. The hidden side of our lives so well told, especially in the paradox of the time period. We are always, just human and the rules of society no matter what time period are just illusions.

    Crazy Rich Asians is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season.

    A perfectly executed piece of entertainment! A great story, exquisitely described locations and lifestyle without being “too much”. I didn’t want story to end, but it was well done and satisfying. I will certainly be on the look out for Kevin Kwan’s next novel. His true talent is in the psychology of family dynamics and the absurdity it can take on. It was a wonderful peak into a past and emerging culture and the clashing dynamics as they unfold everyday life.

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

    Redefining who we are in our family takes courage and an indestructible sense of humor. Being the middle child is never easy, but 36-year-old Jill Bendel is about to find out just how hard that job is when her mother throws away her sensible pumps, packs up her collection of classical music and runs away from home. Longtime wife and mother Ruth Bendel loves her family but hates her life. Husband Richard doesn't even know how the steam iron works, let alone how a woman works.
