I have never heard of enneagram but I like to take in new information on how people relate to one another. This book was so interesting the way you can find your type and another persons type and find out how you would probably relate to one another and things to be aware of to better avoid conflict. It explains every possible relationship and gives great insight into the good and possible bad of the relationship. This is a fairly short book but it is also quite comprehensive. I will be definitely listening to this again. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

Another short story to creep me out. I love it! Short and just creepy enough to leave me feeling a little odd by the time it was over. I love a book that leaves me with an odd feeling and something to think about. The narration of this book was fantastic!!

It’s every girl’s dream, getting rescued by a handsome stranger. When I woke up and saw Kit Green standing over me, I thought he was an angel. I didn’t see the dark wings. What is he doing out here all alone? I don’t question it at first. I’m too busy being blinded by intrigue and desire. If it weren’t for him, I’d be dead. I want to repay him with my body. But things quickly begin to not add up. This cabin is full of secrets. It’s cold outside, but I’m starting to think he came out here to burn for his sins.

Good storyline with a lot of emotions. Grief, loss and pain meets strong, positive and beautiful. Instant attraction and need. The narration was also good. Although I like my sexy man to have a deep sexy male voice to go with his chiseled this and powerful that, Sophie James gave a good performance with the emotion and was very easy to listen to. Overall, a pretty good book. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

This book is an account of ships that have borne the name Queen of the Lakes, an honorary title indicating that, at the time of its launching, a ship is the longest on the Great Lakes. In one of the most comprehensive books ever written on the maritime history of the lakes, Mark Thompson presents a vignette of each of the dozens of ships that have held the title, chronicling the dates the ship sailed, its dimensions, the derivation of its name, its role in the economic development of the region, and its sailing history.

I found this to be a fascinating look. I didn't have much knowledge of ships and never gave them much thought before listening to this book. I figured it sounded like this would be an interesting book to listen to. I was right! Having grown up not far from the Erie Pa./Buffalo NY area, I recognized some of the areas that were discussed and was aware of some of the information (although I never gave it much thought before). This is a very comprehensive book that is obviously well researched. Anything you want to know about the history of ships on the Great Lakes is right here. It is very detailed and covers a lot of history. I never even gave much thought as to how the biggest ship is determined (length, weight?) or how quickly the biggest ship was replaced by an even bigger one. Bill Nevitt did a great job with the narration of this book. I've listened to him before and was just as pleased with this performance as I have been in the past. He is very easy to listen to.

Doctors tend to the needs of their patients, but patients give meaning to the lives of their doctors. So it is for Cullen Brodie, a twice-divorced California nephrologist, and Ennis Willoughby, a troubled cross-dresser whose life is saved by a rare heart-and-kidney transplant. Cullen’s bitter disbelief in the afterlife is tested when Ennis begins to exhibit tastes and characteristics uncannily similar to those of his female organ donor - whose first name Ennis inexplicably knows.

I didn't care for this book. I felt nothing for any of the characters and the subject matter bored me. There wasn't a single character in this book who appealed to me or that I even cared to find out what was going to happen with them. Cross dressing, organ transplant, affairs or death....I just found it overall depressing and boring. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

When Dr. Caden Taggart saw the two men sitting in his waiting room, he didn’t think they were patients. He was right, and when they introduced themselves as agents of the Drug Enforcement Agency, things started to get bad. Then Caden felt as though someone had gut-punched him when his father, Dr. Henry Taggart, told him he probably had carcinoma of the pancreas. When he talked about his son assisting with his suicide, Caden wondered how he could talk him out of that.

Overall, the story itself was good, although some of the words were confusing and the narration made it difficult for me to really get into it.The tone was often off. She sounded too upbeat when she should have sounded troubled, confused or anxious. In addition, one character was supposed to be from Australia but there was no hint of an accent. The male characters sounded a lot like the females so I couldn't tell much of a difference between all of them. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
