Meet Prinny, Chelsea, and Diana. Prinny is the owner of Cosmos, a shop that sells crystals, potions, candles, and hope. It's also a place where no one turns down a little extra-special cocktail that can work as a romance potion or heal a broken heart. But Prinny is in love with her married lawyer, and she'll need nothing short of magic to forget about him. Chelsea works as a living statue at tourist sites around Washington, DC. It's a thankless job, but it helps pay the rent. That and her part-time job at Cosmos.

I enjoyed this book, but definitely not one of my favorite Beth Harbison books. Parts seemed to be a knock-off of Big Little Lies. Orlagh Cassidy was great as always.

I loved this book... there were so many twists that kept me guessing and wondering how everything tied together. Rosalyn Landor is the most amazing narrator - she perfected all the different accents. I could listen to her read a text book. Really enjoyed this plot and listen!

As a woman in today’s world, you know what it’s like to feel pressure on all sides from clashing cultural expectations. How can you stay true to who God has uniquely created you to be in the face of the script you’ve been given? What’s more, how can you stand your ground with grace? The classy confidence you know and love - whether it’s on set at Full House or Fuller House, Dancing with the Stars, The View, or Candace’s Hallmark films - is no act. But it hasn’t come easy. In fact, learning to stay true to herself with grace has been one of the biggest fights of Candace’s life.

This is my favorite CCB book so far. It really hit home. I talked to my husband about it as I was listening.. and he told me he agreed 100% with CCB and it applied directly to a situation we were currently dealing with. If I ever wrote a book, it would be just like this. She took everything I think, feel and desire and put it in this book. I loved it! I may have to listen to it again soon! Thanks CCB!!

Learn to find and play the role God wants most for you to play, not the ones you feel pressured into playing for the sake of others or even our sense of accomplishment and worth. Most of us spend a lot of our lives figuring out when to say yes and when to say no. How to manage our time, reduce stress, do our best for our families, find a little space for "me". But we don't find space for our souls until we learn to step past the yes and no of daily decisions and seek a third option: the best yes. The best yes is the choice that shapes all our other choices.

I really liked the message of this book, but not crazy about the narrator. Seemed a bit robotic. I've been wanting to read this book, but never had time so I'm glad I got to knock it out listening in my car! Worth the listen.

As I started this book, I thought it was going to be a little obnoxious, quite frankly. But as I got into it, it seemed to be everything I needed to hear. Lots of things going on in my life that she touched on. The main thing I took away from this book was that we are responsible for our own lives... stop making excuses!! We have the life we create. Straight forward and I got a lot from this book. Rachel is someone I'd love to be friends with!

Ainsley O'Leary is so ready to get married - she's even found the engagement ring her boyfriend has stashed away. What she doesn't anticipate is for Eric to blindside her with a tactless breakup he chronicles in a blog - which (of course) goes viral. Devastated and humiliated, Ainsley turns to her half sister, Kate, who's already struggling after the sudden loss of her new husband.

Amy Rubinate is quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators and Sands Xe is perfect for Kate. The love stories were perfect and I found the book to be very entertaining! My favorites Higgins book so far! Sad it's over.

When you listen to this audiobook, you will make many assumptions. You will assume you are listening to a story about a jealous ex-wife. You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement - a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love. You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle. Assume nothing. Twisted and deliciously chilling, The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage - and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.

It's been too long since the entire Quinn family has been able to celebrate the holidays under the same roof, but that's about to change. With Bart back safe and sound from Afghanistan, the Quinns are preparing for a holiday more joyous than any they've experienced in years. And Bart's safe return isn't the family's only good news: Kevin is enjoying married life with Isabelle; Patrick is getting back on his feet after paying his debt to society; Ava thinks she's finally found the love of her life; and Kelly is thrilled to see his family reunited at last.
