Bethenny Frankel's no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is personality won over countless fans, and made her a nationally best-selling author and the star of her own hit Bravo show Bethenny Getting Married? Now Bethenny opens up and shares the obstacles she overcame and the great success she has enjoyed while discovering how to approach life from “A Place of Yes”.
This book was great, I love that the author also narrated it. I like the personal stories and how relatable they are, and how the author give a different way of evaluating and approaching things in your life. A must read if you are looking for changes, or if you just need something positive to read.

A tale of archetypal heroes and sweeping adventures, of dragons and princes and evil wizards, here is epic fantasy as only Stephen King could envision it.
This is by far my favorite Stephen King book, not only because it is so different from many of his other books, but because it is very well written. The narration is very well done and had me riveted to the story.
The child of a scheming father and ruthless mother, Lady Jane Grey is born during a time when ambition dictates action. Cousin to Edward VI, Mary I, and Elizabeth I, she is merely a pawn in a political and religious game in which one false step means a certain demise. But Lady Jane has remarkable qualities that help her to withstand the constant pressures of the royal machinery far better than most expect.
This is the first book I had listened to of this type, normally I listen to mysteries, but this book kept me listening time and time again. Even though I'm familiar with this historical story, the author, and all of the narrators, keep you enamored. Very well done.

In this frank and funny memoir, the Tony Award-winning star of stage and screen shares her journey from small-town Oklahoma to big-time Broadway, vamping on what it takes to stand firmly on a foundation of family and faith while wearing a hot pair of Jimmy Choo platform sling-backs.
This book is wonderfully written and narrated. Prior to this I had only seen several of Ms. Chenoweth's on TV performances, but her wit and narration, as well as her interesting story, will prompt me to see more. Her story keeps you listening and will keep you entertained. I loved listening to her narration, I hope she narrates more books in the future. A must read.
Hot off the success of her best-selling Can You Keep a Secret?, Sophie Kinsella delivers another hilarious Becky Bloomwood novel. When last we left Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood), she and Luke had just married and she'd unveiled her big honeymoon surprise...around-the-globe plane tickets. World-weary 10 months later, the newlyweds return home filled with excitement to share the details of their amazing escapades.
The only reason I did not give this book all 5 stars was because of the lack luster narration. Ms. Bailey's voice is tiresome, monotone, and most of all just sounds too mature for Becky's character. Aside from that the story line is very well written, in the same Becky fashion. If you've enjoyed other Shopaholic books you will enjoy this one too, if you can get past the narration.
