Geesje de Jonge crossed the ocean at age 17 with her parents and a small group of immigrants from the Netherlands to settle in the Michigan wilderness. Fifty years later, in 1897, she's asked to write a memoir of her early experiences as the town celebrates its anniversary. Reluctant at first, she soon uncovers memories and emotions hidden all these years, including the story of her one true love.

Springtime in Seattle's Pike Place Market means tasty foods and wide-eyed tourists, and Pepper's Spice Shop is ready for the crowds. With flavorful combinations and a fresh approach, she's sure to win over the public. Even better, she's working with several local restaurants as their chief herb and spice supplier. Business is cooking - until one of Pepper's potential clients, a young chef named Tamara Langston, is found dead, her life extinguished by the dangerously hot ghost chili - a spice Pepper carries in her shop.

I have been enjoying the spice shop mysteries a lot. Budewitz throws in some great twists to give an unexpected ending. her characters are well rounded and fun to get to know.
The voice for this book is perfect, she sounds like a Pepper! I really enjoyed it!!

A train roars over the rails, carrying passengers on a trip that will change their lives. Among the many people aboard the 97 Silver Meteor are Andie Crystal, a lonely young woman hiding from her youth as a reality TV star; Matthew Scofield, a widower trying to manage his responsibilities to his two young children; and Janette Turlington, a middle-aged mother running from a situation that has destroyed the peace in her home and marriage.

Where does Passing Strangers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Passing Strangers was beautifully written and by far the most enjoyable audio book that I've listened to on Audible thus far.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jeanette. She is a woman probably about my age and in some similar life situations. She runs away but finds the courage to engage and then come back and face her challenges and see the gifts she has in front of her.

Which scene was your favorite?

Jeanette talking to "Morgan Freeman"! :)

If you could take any character from Passing Strangers out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Jeanette - I'd like to ask her how things are going now, and how she's healing after all the trauma that she's endured.

Any additional comments?

I love Angela Hunt's writing, she is an amazing storyteller and Passing Strangers was a well-crafted story.
