I enjoyed listening to this book. It was very informative and was read very well. The narrator was clear and added many examples to support her points. I was able to gather a world of ideas from this book. I would recommend to every event planner.

When it comes to swimming with the sharks, there is no bigger kahuna than Serge Storms. Bingeing on a marathon of legal movies set in Florida, Serge finds his vocation: the law. Never mind law school or that degree; Serge becomes a freelance fixer - wildcat paralegal and pilgrim to the hallowed places where legal classics of the big screen such as Body Heat, Cool Hand Luke, and Absence of Malice were filmed practically in his own backyard.

I can't stop listening to The Outlander series! It's a great listen and I would recommend if you're into romance, honor, family, and twisted fates.

Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

This book is really good!! The narration...even better. Davina Porter is excellent. It does have its moments of brutality but that was suited to the times and it did make me cringe many times. This book is filled with history, love, and making hard decisions. I loved it...on to part two!
