An unsent letter in a first-edition copy of Charlotte's Web leads to a hunt for treasure in this heartwarming middle-grade mystery from the author of The Mother-Daughter Book Club. Now that Truly Lovejoy's father has been injured by an IED in Afghanistan and is having trouble finding work back home, the family moves from Texas to tiny Pumpkin Falls, New Hampshire, to take over Lovejoy's Books, a struggling bookstore that's been in the family for 100 years.

What did you love best about Absolutely Truly?

I love the transformation of the dad, and the relationship with his kids.

What other book might you compare Absolutely Truly to and why?

I don't think I've ready anything like it before.

Have you listened to any of Amy Rubinate’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I felt like she nailed the various characters for this one, but I always like her reading style.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There was a very tense part at the end of the book but I don't want to spoil it for anyone.

The book club is about to get a makeover. Even if Megan would rather be at the mall, Cassidy is late for hockey practice, Emma's already read every book in existence, and Jess is missing her mother too much to care, the new book club is scheduled to meet every month. But what begins as a mom-imposed ritual of reading Little Women soon helps four unlikely friends navigate the drama of middle school.

Where does The Mother-Daughter Book Club rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the first, but not the last.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked all the different girls' points of view. The character development was fantastic. You were able to follow the characters through their problems and the characters grew to know each other.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration was fantastic. Using different voices for the characters really brought it to life.

Stacy Justice is your average small-town reporter...who just so happens to be a witch. She’s never had the time or patience to mess around with the magic her grandmother and great-aunts are into, even though Grandma says Stacy has a higher calling. Right now, Stacy has stories to cover, her cousin Cinnamon’s bar to help run, and her cute cop boyfriend and flatulent Great Dane to keep her company. But when someone sets Cinnamon’s bar ablaze - almost killing Stacy in the process - the green-eyed redhead will have to embrace her inner witch after all.

Would you listen to Opal Fire again? Why?

Totally!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Opal was awesome and funny.

Have you listened to any of Amy Rubinate’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I bought this book because I like supernatural suspense, but I also liked the sample of narration that I read. Totally worked to the end.
