Fifth-generation lobster-woman Mat Pero loves her traditional Portuguese family and living in the lesbian hub of Provincetown, even if they feel like two different worlds. Or two different lives. Since she has no plans for them to collide, it's not a problem. Graham Connor is a romantic at heart, but she hasn't had a date in over a year. She vows to let loose and have a little fun, and the charming and confident Mat is more than happy to help.

I loved Autumn's Light. It great to be back in Ptown. The story of Mat, proud to follow a long line of Lobster"men", and Graham is an excellent continuation of the series. The romance and relationships are good, but I also like learning about what life is like for someone in the lobster/fishing industry. Hollis Elizabeth does an excellent job with the narration.

Historian Lizzie Petrie remains nothing more than a lesbian in her bitter mother’s eyes. The suppressed hurt of that superficial assessment means she still catches herself off guard when thinking of Sarah as her wife. The couple has endured the fallout of Lizzie’s insecurities and set up house in Fort Collins, Colorado. Now their relationship is about to be tested again.

I loved the audio edition of A Woman Ignored. I can really identify with a woman struggling to “act” normal. Trying to fit in. Sometimes the teasing Lizzie gets from her wife and best friend seem a little to harsh to me. Stephanie Murphy does an excellent job with the narration.

Chase Banter thought her life couldn't get any weirder. Her mother has taken up private investigating, her writers' group's helpful suggestions have led to severe writer's block, and her girlfriend's family is nuts. Growing up isn't high on her list of priorities. What grip Chase has on her life is severely challenged when her girlfriend tells her about the little oops at the gynecologist. Seems the doctor mixed up the rooms, and now Gitana is pregnant. The reality of Gitana's radiant glow - and growing waistline - finally convinces Chase to accept that she's about to become a parent.

I loved the audio edition of Family Affair. I had already read the book. The audio adds more to the story. The struggle that Chase is going thru seems more real. Layce Gardner does an excellent job with the narration. There are many examples of laugh out loud lines. But the description of what happens at a Fondue restaurant is absolutely priceless.

Her trip is worth it, though, as she finds what she came for. Finding a woman who is intrigued by her, the adventure, and more is just a bonus. Felicia goes along on another trip; could it be fatal for both of them to go deep in the jungle to search for these elusive stones?

I enjoyed Unleashed:Case of the Gold Retriever. Yes, you have to suspend belief for a short while. But it’s all in the name of fun and a bit of light reading. Short note: The audio version narrator calls the book title as Unleashed:Case of the GOLDEN Retriever, both at the beginning and ending of the audio version. Surprised that was left to stand.

Gia Malone wants only to be the best surfer in the world. Her biggest obstacle is the annoyingly perky Elle Britton. But there's a lot about Elle that Gia never noticed, like her surprising sense of humor and picture-perfect mouth. Elle Britton is tired. All she wants in the world is a little peace and quiet. But with Gia Malone closing in on her ranking, she has to surf her best. When the media picks up the story of their neck-and-neck status, Elle finds herself forced further into the spotlight, this time alongside Gia, the knockout with the killer shred and sexy smile.

I enjoyed The Art of Mapmaking by Thalia Fand. It is different. Yes, there is seduction and romance. But a lot centers on Casey, a standup performer of verse (I guess). Interesting. Marie Debonair does an excellent job with the narration.
