Laurie is sure love at first sight doesn't exist anywhere but the movies. But then, through a misted-up bus window one snowy December day, she sees a man who she knows instantly is the one. Their eyes meet, there's a moment of pure magic...and then her bus drives away. Certain they're fated to find each other again, Laurie spends a year scanning every bus stop and cafe in London for him. But she doesn't find him, not when it matters anyway. Instead they "reunite" at a Christmas party, when her best friend, Sarah, giddily introduces her new boyfriend: the man from the bus.

I made the correct choice in choosing to listen to the Audible version of the book. Imagine my delight at finding out the actress of a show I'm loving was the narrator! This story was the kind that makes you breathless and breaks your heart several times. It will be a book I read more than once! Keeping my fingers crossed for a movie so that I can watch it over and over at Christmas too!

Life is meant to be savored, but that’s not easy with no family, limited prospects, and a past you’d rather not talk about. Still, Callie Smith doesn’t know how to feel when she discovers she has a brother and a sister - Malcolm, who grew up with affection, wealth, and privilege, and Keira, a streetwise 12-year-old. Despite her trepidation, she moves into the grand family home with her siblings and grandfather on the shores of Lake Washington, hoping just maybe this will be the start of a whole new life. But starting over can be messy.

I read an excerpt of this book and was excited to get the whole book. It was a fun story, however I have decided that I don't care for this particular narrator (whom I have listened to before). I have read and listened to many Susan Mallery books but may just stick to reading from now on.

Garrett Daniels has this whole life thing figured out. The cocky, charismatic former high school star quarterback is an idolized football coach and "cool" teacher in the hometown where he's not just a golden boy - he's platinum. He has good friends, a great house on the lake, and the best damn sidekick a man could ask for: Snoopy, the albino beagle. Then...Callie Carpenter comes home.

I loved everything about this book. The author presented the story wonderfully. I enjoyed the two stories woven together and the courage of all of the women. She did a great job with supporting characters and the inclusion of the history was the bow on top. I also enjoyed that the story spanned WWI and WWII. The narrator was great, she really made the accents and language come alive.

One minute Tegan Lawson has everything she could hope for: an adoring husband, Gabe, and a baby on the way. The next a patch of black ice causes a devastating accident that will change her life in ways she never could have imagined. Tegan is consumed by grief - not to mention her anger toward Gabe, who was driving on the night of the crash. But just when she thinks she's hit rock bottom, Gabe reminds her of their Jar of Spontaneity, a collection of their dream destinations and experiences, and so begins an adventure of a lifetime.

I couldn't stop listening! Tegan and Gabe's story was beautiful and heartbreaking. The author did such a great job of making the reader feel all of the emotions, from anger and anguish to hope and peace. My favorite was the journey they took and the places they visited! I felt like I was right there for the ride. Can't wait for more from Karma Brown!
