They soon found their true passion in life, combining their natural gifts for entertaining with the skills they learned from buying, renovating, and selling homes.

Best book I've listened to in a long time. Really well done and makes me love your shows even more. Great wholesome book that you can listen for a long ride with kids in the car. Thanks for sharing. Would love another book by you two.

Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver.

"I'll never forget that night. It was like a romance novel, an old Broadway musical, and a John Wayne western rolled into one. Out for a quick drink with friends, I wasn't looking to meet anyone, let alone a tall, rugged cowboy who lived on a cattle ranch miles away from my cultured, corporate hometown. But before I knew it, I'd been struck with a lightning bolt... and I was completely powerless to stop it."

I want more of the story. How did Tim meet his wife, how were the other pregnancies? How did your business start? I realize this was written six years ago so will there be another book? If so, I would call it "My Frontier". This book was a great love story and I didn't want it to end. Great job and I hope another book will come out.

In This Life I Live, Rory Feek helps us not only to connect more fully to his and Joey’s story but also to our own journeys. He shows what can happen when we are fully open in life’s key moments, whether when meeting our life companion or tackling an unexpected tragedy. He also gives never-before-revealed details on their life together and what he calls “the long goodbye,” the blessing of being able to know that life is going to end and taking advantage of it.

Every mother's worst fear became Sharon Rocha's reality. On Christmas Eve 2002, she received a phone call from her son-in-law saying that her daughter, Laci, was missing. In the hours, days, and eventually months that followed, Sharon struggled to avoid accepting what no parent should ever have to face: the certain knowledge that her child is never coming home.

This book from Sharon is written so very well. Thankfully, in the middle of a horrible circumstance, she was able to take notes and remember so many conversations and details. I was so captured with this story and I truly wish many blessings for all of the circle of love and Laci's immediate family. You will always be in my prayers.

A mind-bending, genre-twisting debut novel. In West Akron, there lived a reclusive elderly man who always wore mittens, even in July. He had no friends and no family; all over town, he was known only as The the Man from Primrose Lane. And on a summer day in 2008, someone murdered him.

The narrator was totally amazing taking on so many characters. I wasn't crazy about the time travel concepts but still could not stop listening. If I were reading the book, I would not have put the book down. Very grabbing!

In early 2000, Adnan Syed was convicted and sentenced to life for the murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee, a high school senior in Baltimore, Maryland. Syed has maintained his innocence, and Rabia Chaudry, a family friend, has always believed him. By 2013, contacted Sarah Koenig, a producer at This American Life. In 2014, Koenig's investigation turned into Serial, a Peabody Award-winning podcast with more than 500 million international listeners. But Serial did not tell the whole story.

Better than I even imagined. I bought the hard copy early on but wasn't getting through it fast enough so switched to audible. Then I couldn't stop listening. So well written and read by Raubia. This book gives so much more information than what we have learned through the pod casts. I only wish it could be translated into Korean for Hae's poor family. If they knew this story I believe they would put a fire under the State of Maryland to find the real killer. They can't possibly know all these details
