I really loved listening to this audio...The story takes place on the phone, mostly between a mother and daughter...Their conversations are so funny.. All the character's are delightful and the Indian accents are really great...I listened to this book several times and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for something different...

No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents, all of whom are rich or famous or both. These are the only rules for Jules Larsen’s new job as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan's most high-profile and mysterious buildings.

I certainly didn't enjoy this story...It was very ridiculous and I found my mind wandering to other things...I really struggled to finish it!
I feel the author had to fill the pages with four-letter words and crude fluff in order to snag a younger audience..
This is not a good read and I would not recommend it to any well-read adult....

Beekeeper Holly McNee Kensen quietly lives in a world of her own on Sullivan’s Island, tending her hives and working at the local island library.

To escape the drama, Holly’s sister, Leslie, married and moved away, wanting little to do with island life. Holly’s escape is to submerge herself in the lives of the two young boys next door and their widowed father, Archie.

I loved this book! I have read all Dorothea Benton Frank's novels and this one was the best yet....

Hilariously funny and heartwarming... DBF can whip up a true southern tale like no other.

I adore this lady and look forward to anything she may write in the future...

The narrator was spot - on perfect with her lovely southern accent... She hit all the "high notes" in this story...

RECOMMEND IT TO EVERYONE....

I loved this book so much! Elin Hildebrand is the most gifted novelist to come along in a lifetime.... Her beautifully written novel was absolutely amazing... This lady can flat - out write!
Summer of '69 draws the reader into the pages of the story and at the same time, brings all her endearing characters right into your heart. I admired the way the historical facts were interwoven throughout the midst of the book. It brought back so much nostalgia of the era in which the whole storyline surrounded.
I would highly recommend this heartfelt book to anyone... My husband and I have really adored listening to it... I just wish it never had to end!

From the New York Times best-selling author of the Beach House series comes a heartwarming and evocative novel about the bonds and new beginnings that are born from natural disasters and how, even during the worst of circumstances - or perhaps because of them - you discover what is most important in life. When a sudden storm threatens the coasts of Florida and South Carolina, an eclectic group of evacuees flee for the farm of their friends Grace and Charles Phillips in North Carolina.

I found this story to be very boring and over-the-top ridiculous.... For those of us who have lived up and down the east coast and have weathered many a hurricane, please don't insult our intelligence!
I could not relate to any of the character's in this book and found them to be extremely shallow...as was the book itself.
Mary Alice Monroe should probably stick to her knowledge about the "lowcountry" as well as her beloved "sea creatures"...

It was a typical evening at a mall outside Portland, Maine. Three teenage friends waited for the movie to start. A boy flirted with the girl selling sunglasses. Then the shooters arrived. The chaos and carnage lasted only eight minutes before the killers were taken down. But one person wasn't satisfied with the shockingly high death toll at the DownEast Mall. And as the survivors slowly heal, find shelter, and rebuild, they will discover that another conspirator is lying in wait - and this time, there might be nowhere safe to hide.
