Would you listen to Toys and Baby Wishes again? Why?

Yes, I'd probably listen to it again. I really loved the reader's voice. It was different hearing a man read a romance, but he did a great job on everything from the narrative to the female voices. Of course, it helped that he had a wonderful story to tell!

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the romantic storyline as well as the very timely subplot regarding the way young adults view older people. The hero in this story quickly learns that folks in their sixties are still smart, contributing members of society--and older doesn't mean "elderly."

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

This is the first time I've heard him read, but I hope to hear him again!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Warm, loving film full of spice, conflict and memorable characters.
