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.

Where is Emily Gray

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 08-11-09

I've thoroughly enjoyed listening to Emily Gray narrate and BE Becky Bloomwood. I'm sorry to see she does not return. The story itself is still fun and typical Becky.

Emily Gray made Becky's character so fun and alive. She made it easy to forgive Becky when you know you should really want to ring Becky's neck.

This narrator is pleasant to hear, she's just not the Becky I've become used to picturing in my imagination.

He's Just Not That Into You, based on the popular episode of Sex and the City, educates otherwise smart women on how to tell when a guy just doesn't like them enough, so they can stop wasting time making excuses for a dead-end relationship.

A Must Have For Any Woman Who Is Dating

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 04-06-09

If I had listened to this book when I was still dating, I would have saved myself months of excruciating frustration. In a painfully funny way this audiobook speaks the truth to all women out there. There is no need to psycho-analyze your man; if he loves you, you WILL know it. Plain and simple.

Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind.

I love Jamie and Claire

I just finished listening to Voyager and was crushed to think my adventures with Jamie and Claire were over. To my pleasant surprise I found that there are three more books. To my consternation, they are abridged and narrated by someone other than Davina Porter. She is Jamie and Claire. In Ms. Porter's profile she won an award for her narration of "A Breath of Snow and Ashes" so I know it is out there. I hope the other two books are also out there, unabridged and narrated by Davina Porter.
On another note, I just recommended the Outlander series to my mom. This is definitely one of the best series I've come across in a long time.The pairing of Diana Gabaldon's writing and Davina Porter's narration is perfect. All the characters come to life. I found myself laughing out loud at some scenes and smiling wistfully at others. Do yourself a favor and listen to this book and the two that precede it.
