Nicholas Boulton is my new favorite narrator and Laura Kinsale is a new to me favorite author. I alternated between listening and reading the paperback. I couldn't put this one down.
Such a unique story. I might have ugly cried near the end. It's earned a spot on my keeper shelf. I am looking forward to reading more from this author. And listening to Nicholas read more books.

I thoroughly enjoyed this radio type drama. I'm not an expert on Austen and I've never read Emma. I've seen the movie adaptations. I was delighted with this version. I have already purchased another version of Emma to compare. Thank you Audible. I will be listening to this again.

Whew. Hot. In. Here.
I was not TEAM MARC until this book. And yeah, I'm fairly certain that this is my favorite of all favorite I Team stories. Erotic interludes that melted my ears, a thrilling/terrifying terrorist attack that had me on the edge of my seat and white knuckling my steering wheel to and from work.

Thank you Kaleo Griffith for bringing my favorite characters to life. Thank you Pamela Clare for creating this world.

Give this a listen. You might like it.

When out-of-work graphic designer Verity Long accidentally traps a ghost on her property, she's saddled with more than a supernatural sidekick - she gains the ability to see spirits. It leads to an offer she can't refuse from the town's bad boy, the brother of her ex and the last man she should ever partner with. Ellis Wyatt is in possession of a stunning historic property haunted by some of Sugarland, Tennessee's finest former citizens.

Being broke, unemployed, and stranded back in the tiny town of Pick, Texas, was not part of Jancy Wilson's plan. Yet here she is, watching her car literally go up in smoke - along with her last-ditch hope of staying with her cousin in Louisiana. When Jancy spies a Help Wanted sign hanging in the window of the quaint Strawberry Hearts Diner, the memories of the two years she spent there as a teenager - and the lure of the diner's beloved strawberry tarts - are enough to draw her in and plant her feet...but only temporarily.

The story started out great and I was excited to read it. I enjoyed the first book and loved that Kaleo Griffith was narrating the second book as well.
Brandon and Megan definitely had a spark but I felt it ignited into love way too soon. It ignited into a few sappy cheesy scenes that had me cringing.
Overall though, a nice HEA.

Folksy and fresh, endearing and affecting, Fried Green Here is the now-classic novel of two women in the 1980s; of gray-headed Mrs. Threadgoode telling her life story to Evelyn, who is in the sad slump of middle age. The tale she tells is also of two women - of the irrepressibly daredevilish tomboy Idgie and her friend Ruth - who back in the thirties ran a little place in Whistle Stop, Alabama, a Southern kind of Cafe Wobegon offering good barbecue and good coffee and all kinds of love and laughter, even an occasional murder.

I am adding Lorna Raver to my list of favorite narrators. She brought this book to life and I plan on listening to it again and again.
I fell in love with the movie and I've been meaning to read this book for years. I'm so glad I finally did. It fills in so much that was missing from the movie. In fact, they feel like two completely different worlds. Book and movie.
Mrs. Threadgood made me feel like I was spending time with my beloved grandparents again and listening to their stories of the depression. I love this book even more for that.
Oh...and the old fashioned recipes at the end of the book. I'm so glad I kept my hardcover.

I listened to this as I've been listening to all Kerrigan Byrne books. Derek Perkins does such a fabulous job of bringing the characters to life. I love his voice.
Why 5 stars? These stories are fun, sexy, slightly gruesome and I don't want them to end.
