What a great ride... I didn't want it to end. A good look into the world of entertainment from the business side, tongue and cheek, then through in aliens and see what you get. It's a blast. Love the dialogue!!!

I am enjoying this series so much! There is more than one story line and it is really important to go in order because each book builds on the next. I had a terrible time turning off the recording and found many excuses to sneak in extra listening time. Don't miss out on this great group of characters, the romances, friendships, laughter, real life.
Totally enjoyable!

I love how she fully develops the characters, and it's not just about two people, but it's about families and communities with their real life struggles and triumphs.

She has very quickly become a favorite author, and this a favorite series!

I really enjoyed this story line, these new characters. The main couple were very real and honest with real problems but there was love and a lot of community and laughter. I really enjoyed it, I already downloaded next in series and have the whole list. I've found a great new group adventures to embark on.
I love the narrator as well, and find her 5 star worthy, the app has a glitch and isn't letting me give it!

Nikki Burgess survived a terrible marriage and a worse divorce. She's just about given up hope of ever finding happiness. But when her ex-husband suddenly dies, she gets custody of her kids again - and a chance to start over. Dixie McPherson, on the other hand, has had way too much love. She has 11 tennis bracelets, dozens of trinkets, piles of sexy lingerie, and a tarnished reputation when all she ever wanted was true love, a partner, and a family. Carlisle Bartlett is loyal, kindhearted, and the funniest guy slinging drinks in the back of an airplane. But he has an ugly little secret. The only kind of love he's used to comes with bruises.

New York Times best-selling author Carla Neggers has amassed legions of fans for her engaging blend of romance and suspense. Saint’s Gate features Colin Donovan, a deep-cover FBI agent who usually works alone - and likes it that way. When he tackles a case involving art heists and a convent’s long-held secrets, however, he finds himself more and more interested in the beguiling Emma Sharpe.
