This is a well written story about faith and trust. I enjoyed the characters, and how they kept having faith when bad things happened. I love a good romance with some adventure, and this book has both! Another winner, Barbara Goss!

Time stops for Jen when her beloved daughter, Gracie, is involved in a terrible car crash. Pronounced dead at the scene, it's a miracle when paramedics manage to then resuscitate the little girl. The relief Jen feels at Gracie's recovery is matched only by her fury at the driver of the car - her ex-husband's new girlfriend, Ella. Jen has never trusted Ella, and now her worst fears have been confirmed.

I did like this story about Gracie and her mom, and should have caught on sooner than I did what was going on. It was heartbreaking and touching. The only thing I didn't like was the voice of whiney Gracie. It even made our cat screech a couple of times while I was listening to it. The other voices were fine, just the whiney Gracie one. I'll look forward to more books by Jill Childs

Luke Pardini is many things: playboy, tabloid fodder, ridiculously attractive billionaire. He's the Prince Charming every woman dreams of. And he wants me to be his fake girlfriend. I don't want a relationship, even a make-believe one, but I do need the money. Writing isn't paying the bills, and I hardly have time for a second job, let alone a romance. But he's offering me a dream-come true. I'll get the fancy dresses, the formal dinners, the full Luke Pardini experience. I get to be Cinderella for a few weeks, then I'll trade in the shoes. No problem, right?

It was one freaking kiss with a stranger. I wasn't looking for a hero the day Brent Eden charged into my life. He saw a damsel in distress facing humiliation. We played pretend. Swore I was his. Baited sweet chaos. Blew apart everything. My dating disaster? Gone. Our kiss? Electric. Divine. Toe-curling. His mistake? Oh, boy. Dropping the ultimate F-bomb: fiancée. Especially when my gossipy cousin tells the whole family.

I liked this story, different than many of the others I've read. The only thing I really didn't like was the language. I'm not opposed to a few swear words here and there, when they're making a point, but all the way through is kind of a turn off for me...just my opinion. Other than that, I did like the storyline and I did like the main characters.

Eva Andrews would do anything for her best friend, even if it means dropping everything to plan a last minute wedding at Castle Mountain Lodge. Especially when the last thing she feels like doing is celebrating love now that she's sworn off men. And with Jeff Michaels, the rugged and all too good-looking ranch hand determined to get in her way, it won't be easy. Jeff's never wanted more than the life he has at the Lodge, but an exciting new job opportunity and the arrival of a beautiful - albeit frustrating - woman have him second-guessing everything.

FBI Special Agent Samuel Kerman has been tasked to catch a wildly erratic serial killer dropping bodies in Pennsylvania state parks. The victims differ, and the manner of murder changes every time. Amid the mountains of physical evidence, only a mysterious gray dust and declarations of guilt or innocence link the crimes. It's not much to work with, and the case drags on for months. Then, things go from bad to worse when the killer makes it personal. Family, friends, strangers...everybody's in danger of being scratched off.

I liked all the twists and turns this book took, and just when I thought I had it figured out, something new came out! I thought this was a great story about winning & losing, and how the killer tied that to how he killed his victims. The narrator did a good job, although at times I thought he needed to sound a little more 'evil' if that is possible, when he was speaking for the killer. I did like how we got to be inside the killer's mind and how he was chossing how his victims died, and how we didn't have to listen to gory details of them dying. Great story Julie C Gilbert. I hope there are more like this one coming!

He has a goal and a plan. If he carries through with the plan, his sister will die first. His ex will die next, and he will die last. In between, he’ll take out as many people as he can. Students. Security guards. Teachers. First responders. They are all fair game.

I thought this book was very well written, even though it was pretty inense at times. The characters were developed well so that you felt something for them when the events happened to each one, and it seemed like I was actually there. I liked that we got the story from so many different characters, including the shooter. The narrator did a great job pulling me into the story and into the characters. This was my first read of Julie Gilbert, and I'm glad I read it.

As soon as I heard Nick Sarandon's voice narrating this book, it brought me right back to the end of Yellowstone Redemption, and all the adventures of Chase's journey so far! I loved this story, and it filled in things I'd been wondering about when Chase returned from his spirit journey in his other book. Well done, Peggy L Henderson and Nick Sarandon!
