First-I LOVED THIS STORY! With our world completely embroiled in the back door dirt of politics, T.B. Markinson has shown us through muck of the election process in a unique way. Instead of the Presidency of the United States that Ainsley was born for, she's running for 'President' in a college project. Unfortunately, even in a mock election, the stakes are very high and so is the personal price. My God do I dislike Susie Q! Masterful, funny, and sexy as hell! I so hope there is a book three! As always, Lori Prince is outstanding! Her range of emotions for the characters is MASTERFUL! T.B.- if there is a book three, please let Lori continue. Nobody could do this better!

Australian crime reporter Maddie Grey is out of her depth in New York, miserable, and secretly drawn to her powerful, twice-married media mogul boss, Elena Bartell, who eats failing newspapers for breakfast. As work takes them to Australia, Maddie is goaded into a brief, seemingly harmless bet with her enigmatic boss - where they have to tell the complete truth to each other. It backfires catastrophically.

Another incredible story of the lives of the residents of Whiskey Springs. JA Armstrong draws you in with her vivid characters and the emotions of love, laughter and heartache. Jill Smith does a masterful job of bringing Fallon, Riley, Andi, Billie, and the rest of the characters to life. She has an incredible voice and the talent to put all the emotion into the story line. A wonderful story in both the writing and the narration. I love how she handles Owen's character. The ability to bring forth the wonder of a child adds so much. WELL DONE! Can't wait for more!

I was given a copy of this audible book free for an honest review. Wow, the angst. Dani is guilt ridden and driven to find the truth at the cost of all other things in her life. Written by Barbara Winkes, the theme terrified me at the thought of it being real. It's all about control and the great lengths that those who want it, will go to attain it. The narration is very well done. Hats off to TJ Richards for bringing it to life.
