Who is Donald J. Trump? To truly understand America’s 45th president, argues Vanity Fair journalist Emily Jane Fox, you must know his children, whose own stories provide the key to unlocking what makes him tick. Born Trump is Fox’s dishy, deeply reported, and richly detailed look at Trump’s five children (and equally powerful son-in-law, Jared Kushner), exploring their lives, their roles in the campaign and administration, and their dramatic and often fraught relationships with their father and with one another.

I think Ms Fox did a nice job of reading her book. It was entertaining, but I was very disappointed it was more about d.t. than his children. After the first third of the book the children were mention as a side thought. I listened to the whole book, sometimes going back over chapters thinking I'd missed something about the kids, but unfortunately most of the time I had not! I saw Ms Fox interviewed on TV and was very interested, but the book was not about the children as much as it was about d.t. Just call me disappointed!!!

The White House is the home of the president of the United States, the most guarded, monitored, closely watched person in the world. So how could a US president vanish without a trace? And why would he choose to do so? An unprecedented collaboration between President Bill Clinton and the world's best-selling novelist, James Patterson, The President Is Missing is a breathtaking story from the pinnacle of power.

I think it is probably a good book Dennis Q. ruined it for me. It would have been better if Bill Clinton had recorded the president part. I just could not get over that terrible voice of the president. I had to stop listening!.

Wade Abbott is one and done. One look, one conversation, one weekend, and he knows who he wants. Except Mia Simpson is not free to return his affection. In fact he suspects she's in an abusive marriage, but she never confirms that, and he has no choice but to mind his own business where she's concerned.

I've been waiting for this book, so glad it is finally here. So nice to visit the family members and to catch up with their lives. Wade and Mia's story was captivating. Wish it was longer and took us a couple of years more into their lives. How you come up with a different love story for every couple is delightful. Enjoy!

When photojournalist Kamaria Trayhern goes undercover at the Mason family ranch, she's hoping to find her real father, not romance. But keeping everyone convinced she is who she claims to be will be harder than she expects - especially where one sexy ranch hand is concerned. After all he's been through, there's no way Wesley Sheridan wants to tangle with more heartache and lies. So the last thing he needs is to be drawn to the pretty new caretaker.

The career of Stefanie Powers is one of so many stage, screen, and television credits that her name alone recalls memories as varied as her roles-on screen and off. From movie roles including John Wayne's daughter in McLintock! and Lana Turner's rival in Love Has Many Faces, to being terrorized by Tallulah Bankhead in Die, Die My Darling and befriending a Volkswagen in Herbie Rides Again.

Ms Powers has given me, personally, many hours of enjoyment over the last 50+ years. I've always thought she was beautiful and how nice to find out she is just as beautiful on the inside. What an interesting life she is living. I found her loving relationship with Bill Holden fascinating. Your close loving relationship with your Mother warmed my heart! Thank you, Ms Powers for sharing your interesting life with me.
