Aren't swimmers taught it is dangerous to swim alone? Yep that is what I thought. But Gail is an Olympian. A gold medal swimmer. She swims the cove to see Todd but she has two others who love her. Each choice she makes the deeper in she gets. How does she fix this or can she? I enjoyed this light clean reading novel. It has a few surprises along the way but it was nice to read something that had no swearing just intellegent people in arguments or just talking to one another. The narrator , Chrissa Boice did a nice job telling this story. I enjoyed listening to her.

Women always seem to fall for the bad guy. Will Pearl? And what is that red Thing? I loved the twist and turns in this book you were never quite too sure which way it will go. Meghan Kelly is a great narrator for this book. She as always brings the characters along and keeps you guessing right along with the author. This was a good book and I read it in one sitting.

Oh this series gets more and more exciting for me. And to know that parts of it are true is even more enticing. Dave is so confused and maybe Sarah too will they fall in love? Carolyn Kashner really brings the characters to life and even some of the cute parts are read so well. Loved Sarah's Special Gift hated for it to end. Cannot wait for the next book in the series.

The Bear Lake series seems to be getting better and better. I like that the author tells a little about the facts in the book that are true. Interesting history. Will Jenny fall in love with Will or will they just stay friends. She was a tomboy but now she is a lady. Does that matter to a friend? The dialogue is great and the narrator again brings the characters to life. Great job Carolyn Kashner.

In this inspirational historical romance, Edith is a nurse and has gone home to assist her cousin who is “with child.” Edith has wonderful qualities but never gives a man a second chance because her expectations are so high. However, all that changes when a mysterious stranger starts writing to her. For the first time, she gets to know a man's inner soul before making any harsh judgments. Whoever he is, this man is a mystery and the best thing that has ever happened to her. The question that puzzles her is whether or not he's as wonderful in person as he is in his letters.

I enjoyed this book. It has some great characters and story line. Will they fall in love? Or is he just another of Ron's buddies? There are fears to overcome. Will she ride on the Harley that he loves so much? I could not put this book down. I needed the answers to all the questions. Like what is going to happen with Mom and Dad? A good listen and a good narrator. Gail Hedrick did a nice job bringing the characters to life.

Carter, the mastermind behind her foray through time, reveals that she'll be remaining there for six years - assuming she survives the first winter.

It is wonderful the research that was done in this time period. Josie is learning a lot of lifes lessons in her time traveling. The ending makes me think about all the things that happened in this time period and what will come. I loved this book and am looking forward to more. Good writing and narrating.

This book had a different slant on other prepper books I have read. I liked that in this book it is about people helping people. Of course there are always the bad and greedy people of the world. I did not like the short blurb in it about politics. Glad they did not go on any longer about that. It is amazing what Allison does. Cannot wait or hoping for a book 2.
