This is the first audible book that I listen to that is abridged. Audible does not have the full version of this book. It was obviously a great story but it just felt so choppy and rushed! I don’t think I will purchase any more abridged books......

I love Mary Balogh, I think I have every book that Audible has of hers. This particular series is very good. The heroine of this story is older, which I find appealing. Of course, the combination of Mary Balogh and Rosalyn Landor is unbeatable!

From the moment I heard about this book, I knew I had to read it. This is the story of a Cuban American family and the legacy of the revolution on them. The story changes from the present to the time of the revolution (1958-59). The book is meticulously researched and written in a very compelling way. I could imagine myself having all the feelings and emotions of the modern day, Marisol, as she returns to Cuba. This book engulfed me for the entire time I was reading it. The narration was very good. I thought having 2 narrators was excellent. Definitely worth a credit!😊

Maggie Beaumont's luck is about to change. Sure, she's known for her bad romantic choices-her former boyfriend broke up with her by bringing his new girlfriend home for a visit. And then there was the crush she had on a gorgeous young Irishman, who turned out to be Father Tim, the parish's new priest. But romantic salvation has arrived in the form of handsome, if surly, fisherman Malone. It turns out there's a heart of gold underneath his barnacle-clad exterior. Will this catch of the day turn into the dish of a lifetime?

Where does Catch of the Day rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Her books are full of funny,quirky characters. There are many laugh out loud moments and some tear jerker moments. Really enjoyed this book.

Wealthy and arrogant, Gabriel Penhallow knows it's time to fulfill his dynastic duty. All he must do is follow "The Penhallow way" - find a biddable bride, produce an heir and a spare, and then live separate lives. It's worked so well for generations, certainly one kiss with the delectable Livia Stuart isn't going to change things. Society dictates he marry her, and one chit is as good as another as long as she's from a decent family.

I was a bit dubious about this book because it is a debut novel. I was very pleasantly surprised. Ms. Berne's writing was excellent and of. Purse Carolyn Morris did a great job as narrator.
