Jace Crawford heals hearts for a living. More than that, medicine is his life. To become the leading cardiothoracic surgeon on the West Coast, he’s made sacrifices. No social life. He barely has time to sleep. Love? Forget about it. But when everything goes horribly wrong on his table, and he unexpectedly loses a patient, Jace is suspended from work. When a man has nothing but his job, what does he do when that’s gone? Joy Thompson collects unwanted strays. A dog with one eye, a three-legged cat, a bird that swears like a sailor? All part and parcel of her veterinary business.

Kristen Proby has done it once again. The With Me in Seattle series comes alive with Joy and Jace and the Williams and Montgomery families. I can never get enough. I am awaiting a book for Joy’s sister Noelle and Jace’s brother Levi.

What the hell do I know about raising a baby? Nothing. Not a goddamn thing. Yet here I am, the sole guardian of my niece. I'd be lost if it weren't for Katherine, the beautiful girl who seems to have all the answers. Katherine, who's slowly finding her way into my cynical heart. I keep reminding myself that I can't fall for someone when we don't have a future. But telling myself this lie and believing it are two different things.

In a freezing world, where everyone knows the day they will die, three teens break all odds. With the threat of people learning they’ve dodged their deathdays, they must flee their planet to survive. But to do so, all three will have to hide their shared bond as they vie for a highly sought after spot in the newest mission to space - against thousands of people far smarter, who’ll live longer, and never fear death the way that they do.

I didn’t realize how much I was missing the With Me families until I started listening to this book.
Amelia is a wonderful, intelligent, independent Montgomery woman. Wyatt is her neighbor when she relocates to Seattle.
Both of them have baggage. The chemistry is palpable and you want these two to be together.
Even better you meet Anastasia and Archer Montgomery Amelia’s siblings. We also meet Levi, and Jace Crawford, Wyatt’s siblings. One can only hope this means several more “With Me” books.
Kristen Proby continues write amazing family sagas that don’t disappoint. If you like to read books in series and follow characters Kristen Proby is your author. Many characters cross series and make cameos.
You will not be disappointed with this audible book purchase.

The last person Griffin Shipley expects to find stuck in a ditch on his Vermont country road is his ex-hookup. Five years ago they shared a couple of steamy nights together, but that was a lifetime ago. At 27 Griff is now the accidental patriarch of his family farm. Even his enormous shoulders feel the strain of supporting his mother, his three siblings, and a dotty grandfather. He doesn't have time for the sorority girl who has shown up expecting to buy his harvest at half price.

Audrey and Gryph’s story was great. You kept wanting them to be together. I love the Shipley family and farm. I really enjoyed the world Sarina has woven. The only criticism I had was the male narrator pronounced Montpelier wrong. Or perhaps that the intention. This was a great story highlighting that family is not blood, it is those around you. The Shipley’s are a family I want to know and be around.

To date this is my favorite of the True North series. Sophie and Jude have this amazing bond. You just want a happily ever after for them from the start. As the story went on I found myself talking to the characters telling them how to react to situations. I felt as if I was right there with Jude and Sophie living it. It helps that I am a native Vermonter. Seriously this is a fabulous listen. Sarina hits so many hot button topics and important topics;
opiate abuse, suboxone treatment, lack of adequate treatment facilities for those in need, dysfunctional families, volunteerism. Kudos to you.

Krista and Becca continue to amaze me with each and every book they write in the Like Us series. I was on the verge of tears of not in full blown tears at many points, but then absolutely smiling like a Cheshire chat during others. Maximoff and Farrows story is epic. I only wish my own story was this amazing.
Readers will fall in love again worth all the Addicted families and their off spring. The wit and banter between the body guards and kids is hilarious. The foreshadowing for other possible storylines makes you crave the next book/audible.
I will be anxiously waiting the next launch to read Jane’s story!

Maximoff Hale is a force of nature. A ship unwilling to be steered. Headstrong, resilient, and wholly responsible - the 22-year-old alpha billionaire can handle his unconventional life. Born into one of the most famous families in the country, his celebrity status began at birth. He is certified American royalty. When he's assigned a new 24/7 bodyguard, he comes face-to-face with the worst case scenario: being attached to the tattooed, MMA-trained, Yale graduate who's known for "going rogue" in the security team - and who fills 1/3 of Maximoff's sexual fantasies.

Krista and Becca are my superheroes. I cried at the end of their Addicted and Calloway Sisters series. To have their progeny grown up and falling in love is this avid readers dream come true!
I fell in love with Moffy, Farrow, Jane, Sully, Charlie, Beckett, Quinn, Oscar, Thatcher, Acara, and the rest of the families and security teams.
Moffy is a wonderful young man with a good head on his shoulders. Jane is so wonderful, such a breath of fresh air.
A true Fizzle Force fan will be pulled into this story. Many of the one liners are laugh out loud funny.
I am so excited for the next book in the series. Please don't ever stop writing.

An intricate tale of love, haunting memories, and renewal, Second Glance begins in current-day Vermont, where an old man puts a piece of land up for sale and unintentionally raises protest from the local Abenaki Indian tribe, who insist it's a burial ground. When odd, supernatural events plague the town of Comtosook, a ghost hunter is hired by the developer to help convince the residents that there's nothing spiritual about the property.
