Some people work to pay the bills or send the kids to school or afford playtime. Ex-army medic physician assistant Glenn Archer works, as much as she possibly can, to atone for all the lost lives on her conscience. No matter how many patients she helps save at the Rivers Community Hospital, it will never be enough, but it helps her look at herself in the mirror in the morning.

I enjoyed the reader but sadly not enough character development. Sometime there were a lot of caricatures and had me lost .I did listen while working outside and it was entertaining. Easy spoon fed book. I do buy these books strictly for the easy listening.

Guide dog trainer Lenae McIntyre left the high-speed world of television news writing behind, and now she helps other visually impaired people adjust to life with their canine companions. She teaches her students and their dogs to trust each other, but a past betrayal and the determination to be self-sufficient and independent keep her from trusting her heart to see love. Cara Bradley compensates for her family's shallow celebrity lifestyle by devoting her life to helping others, while keeping to the background.

Nice story, all books must end if not going on to a sequel and I wished it didn't end. Going well until the last 2-3 chapters and the story line seemed to just Peter out quickly. Could have done more exploring of the relationship and what was to happen to the dog handling.where was that story line to go.. Would have been great had the writer delve into who would get Pickwick and where would he spend his life as a guide dog. On the other hand --the book was the relationship between the women so it seemed to end abruptly-- but that's the way books usually finish. Very nice read though and I would recommend it!

Imagine being a 13-year-old girl in love with boys, school, family - life itself. Then suddenly, in a matter of hours, your life is shattered by the arrival of a foreign army. This is the memoir of Elli Friedmann, who was 13 years old in March 1944, when the Nazis invaded Hungary. It describes her descent into the hell of Auschwitz, a concentration camp where, because of her golden braids, she was selected for work instead of extermination. In intimate, excruciating details she recounts what it was like.

This was a very interesting book and so amazing family members could find each other and survive the horrible concentration camps and find each other ! Wonderfully written,wonderfully read, simple because it was written in the eyes of a 13-year-old... But hard to imagine. Hard to imagine that people can do such horrible things, amazing that the ones who survived it did not succumb to hatred and unforgiveness.

I loved everything about this book. The imagination of having a lesbian royal family member involved with a commoner was too good to pass up. Just a little bit hard to start but once I understood who went where it flowed wonderfully. I could really imagine this happening in a modern royal family ! It could be from any country. It didn't have to be from Britain. It sure helped that William took up with Kate in a happy relationship.. so Read on and see what princess Sasha does !

Homicide detective Tori Hunter was used to doing things her way. But even after six different partners in seven years, she was not prepared for the hot-tempered Samantha Kennedy. Samantha, on the other hand, was trying to juggle a new job and a demanding boyfriend and now finds herself with an even greater challenge - being partnered with the most difficult detective in the entire squad.

Very good characters, easy to follow ,good story telling both by the author and the narrator. Could've gone on for more hours. I am ready for the sequels . The actual sex scenes were appropriate and touching and hot, but it screamed of reality and I like that. Lots of hours to listen to and pass the time .I never got bored or confused at where things were going -not once!

I have listened to all in series and loved them. Great storyline. Great characters and their developments. The only criticism is there is too much sex!! LOL--- I don't get that much why should all of them ???. Seriously, I highly recommend the whole series and make sure you download the next one when you are near the end so you don't have to wait and you can jump right in listening.

Pamela Wright will never forgive her sister for dying in the Afghanistan war or the army for Laura's death or anyone else for making it okay for Laura to go halfway around the world to fight for reasons Pam has never fathomed. Numb with grief, she buries her sister but not her rage. Among the mourners is Trish Tomlinson, who loved Laura long ago and has found the news of Laura's death sharply painful.

I read/ listened to this book over memorial weekend - so fitting . My dad was a veteran and it brought me to tears and laughs to think of him. He book is for women vets but the story does cross genders. I dos t see a guy reading it but any women who have siblings or friends on the service should read . Good story , good reader, good fun/ time of listening.
