    Sculptor Clare Kimball has captured the attention of the New York art world. But big-city success cannot burn away the half-remembered nightmares that have plagued Clare since childhood. These phantoms of the past have drawn her home to Emmitsboro, Maryland, to the small town where she grew up and where her father died in circumstances never really explained.

    Must say I haven't finished this one yet & don't know that I will. The sacrifices/rapes/murders creep me out. I may finish it later but for now I'm on to Whiskey Beach. Narrator does a good job though.

    Colleen O'Rourke is in love with love…just not when it comes to herself. Most nights, she can be found behind the bar at the Manningsport, New York, tavern she owns with her twin brother, doling out romantic advice to the lovelorn, mixing martinis, and staying more or less happily single. Ten years ago Lucas Campbell, her first love, broke her heart - an experience Colleen doesn't want to have again, thank you very much. Since then, she's been happy with a fling here and there, some elite-level flirting, and playing matchmaker to her friends. But a family emergency has brought Lucas back to town....

    Story

    This is a great story but the author overuses "special places" & sphincter. I mean--Really???? A bit juvenile. She's also redundant with some words within just a few sentences of each other & then hardly use the word again. But I really liked the story line. Just drop the silly stuff--over trying to be quirky. The narrator is excellent. Great accents & you can always tell a difference in the characters. I will read Book 4, however, despite any issues I have the extras.

    Story

    I'm not sure if it is the narrator or the storyline but I found this book to be very shallow & one dimensional. I kept listening hoping it was get better but it never did really. The hero of the story needs to stand up to his irrational pushing former mother in law. Both main characters are selfish. I kept wondering if I was actually reading the book instead of listening to it would I like it better. I don't know & probably never will because I doubt that I will listen or read any more of Ms. Woods books.

    John Grisham returns to Ford County, Mississippi, the setting of his immensely popular first novel, A Time to Kill. This wholly surprising collection of stories reminds us once again why Grisham is America's favorite storyteller.

    Story

    These are just stories & by 'just' I don't mean bad. I mean they are short stories & nothing deeper than that. They are good stories that I really enjoyed. However, John Grisham needs to still to writing the stories & leave the narrating to others. He is not an actor. Just about put me to sleep. He basically just reads--no inflection hardly--no distinctive differences in the characters voices. But I still love his writing.

    When Nell Channing arrives on charming Three Sisters Island, she believes that she's finally found refuge from her abusive husband - and from the terrifying life she fled so desperately eight months ago. Just as Nell starts to wonder if she'll ever be able to break free of her fear, she realizes that the island suffers from a terrible curse - one that can only be broken by the descendants of the Three Sisters, the witches who settled the island back in 1692.

    Story

    Read this book years ago, but really enjoyed listening to it this time. Some would say it's typical Nora Roberts following a basic pattern & they'd be right. But that's what I like about Nora. The paranormal storyline is something I don't believe in but this is fiction. I'm glad I read it again. Sandra Burr does a great job narrating.

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    Story

    Great story and series but once again southern does not mean stupid. I will never understand why actors & narrators think everyone from the south is a hick & should sound like one. The character of Hayley is read in such a way you think she doesn't have a lick of sense when she's quite intelligent. However, that is my only complaint. Otherwise, the book is perfect.

    This is the first of a triology that is absolutely wonderful. I am constantly amazed at how Nora puts so much detail in to her books on so many different subject matters. This series the subject is gardening. Makes the books individual & interesting. Good narrator, too.

    Nora's different back stories always interest me. This one is magic, the next I read was whiskey, & the most recent one I just finished was race horses. She does such a thorough job with the background details. Love it. Sandra Burr is excellent as usual.
