I liked this cute story. It shows a strong woman who knows what she wants in a man. Tabitha goes to the big city and returns home to her small town. She feels it has not changed but has she? Meghan Kelly does a fine job with her performance. This is a nice relaxing read.

Caelin is a survivor. It's been 11 years since a nuclear disaster drove much of the population underground.

Jate brings the sisters to rebel turf where plans are being hatched to conquer the Undercity. The rebels preach good life for the masses, and both Caelin and Mardy are hooked on the dream.

I thought this book was done very well. It was a great listen. Mystery, intrigue, and drama. This book reminded me very much of Divergent. Well worth the credit even though it is shorter than some books. It will keep you listening until the very end. I am hoping for a sequel to this book. I need to know what happens to all these characters. Well written and well narrated. Courtney Parker gave a great performance.

All of the brooch books have been good. I especially enjoyed this one as they time travel back to the 19th century. It has a little mystery in it and does get resolved by the end. I love the love stories in this series and the personalities of the characters. Great book made even better by the performance of the narrator, Teri Schnaubelt. Wow to do all the accents and sound like a man to boot. I am impressed.

Time travel to this century is not easy for Josie. She must learn to like it and except its ways. Is she trapped here? Time will tell.
Not as good as Book 1 but still very worth the read.

This classic story of adventure during the Scottish war for independence follows the exploits of young Archie Forbes as he fights in defense of his family and his nation. Archie crosses paths with such iconic figures of Scottish history as William Wallace and Robert the Bruce in Henty's beloved historical fiction title. This edition includes the full, unabridged text of In Freedom's Cause. In addition, it includes clear yet extensive discussion questions and study tools to help readers more easily understand this classic text.

I usually like historical novels. This novel seemed more like a text book. The narrator just read the text. I liked the story but did not like the questions right in the middle of the novel. Missed someone giving a performance as other book are performed.

When Janelle Prescott is thrown from her car as it careens off a slippery road, she expects to wake up in a hospital. Instead, to her utter disbelief, she wakes up in a jail cell that looks like something from an old Western movie set. It is there, hurt and alone, with no idea what happened or how she will get back home, that Janelle first meets Aaron Jackson. As she regains her wits, however, Janelle realizes something is terribly amiss, and her worst fears are confirmed when she learns Aaron is the marshal of Cheyenne County, Wyoming...and the year is 1878.

This book has pretty much everything. I had to keep reminding myself that it was fiction as I was not happy about the corporal punishment that some may find cute while listening to it. I felt angry. Great book to have a friend listen to it to for several discussion topics could be gotten from this listen. Gideon Welles did a good job narrating this book.

This story takes place during WW II. It tells of a town that resisted the German's to help those that the German's wanted to take. It is amazing how much the resistance makes a difference to many. The characters are well described and have a great persona. We have never heard much about what war was like for the Dutch. It is interesting at there reactions to the Germans here at the latter part of the war.

This is an interesting story of the haves and have nots of the world. People who bring them together in their time of need. This author knows Chicago well and it was refreshing to read about places you have been and seen. Lower Wacker Drive where the sun never shines. How people live there and try to survive. It truly is a ghost country. The characters in this book are richly portrayed. Read this book. Teri Schnaubelt gives an Excellent performance in this book.

I enjoy reading box sets. It is always nice to have all 3 of the books one right after the other. I loved book 1 and 2 and loved how the author ended them making you want to read the next one. Book 3 was a little jumbled up for me. When all the characters come together from all 3 books was a little confusing for me. The ending was quite unusual. It is one of those that you must read for yourself and perhaps have a discussion with others to see what they think. This book gives food for thought on our future of computers and how things are going. How far do we want to go with computers? All in all this was a great book worth the credit. The Narrator Roshina Ratnam gave a great performance.
