With Frank & Sarah on their honeymoon, I was curious how this story would play out with Gino & Maeve as the main characters. It was just as wonderful as all the other books in the series! Loved it!

My grief therapist recommended this book for us to discuss the mother-daughter relationship as well as the betrayal of incest. For me, Sally Field's career struggles and successes made a fascinating backdrop to the very real, very human drama of her personal life.

Kristine Carlson presents a wonderful perspective about loss as it changes us into a new life, whether it is after losing a spouse (as she did) or child, as well as loss through divorce or betrayals. It is beautifully uplifting. Her own narration adds a sense of authenticity, hearing her own voice speak of the worst and best experiences.

I was drawn to this book because of my familiarity with Joseph Campbell's brilliant "Hero's Journey" as well as my loss of my husband eighteen months ago. The audio book has a PDF workbook to aid in answering personal questions as a means to figure out your own path.

I highly recommend!

I'm hooked on this series! Mrs. Sarah Brandt--Victorian widow and midwife--donates clothes to a mission for wayward young women, only later to be asked by Sergeant Frank Malloy to identify one of them found dead in the New York City park. As Sarah's friend, he recognized her hat and suit on the dead woman. Thus starts the search for the killer.

I loved the twists and turns. Victoria Thompson is a wonderful writer!

There are times I listen to an audiobook that might have been easier to follow in a print format. Thankfully, multiple narrators helped to keep track of the various points of view in The Storyteller. While I was extremely riveted to the World War II story line, I became a little lost in the fairy tale and the present-day plots. However, patience paid off in the end, and I finally understood the author's intention of weaving all three together in a heart wrenching story of forgiveness.

Four friends, four authors, drawn closer together by the loss of their best friend. As an author of more than 30 years, I felt a kinship with all of the characters. So much truth about the publishing world. Surprisingly, this is my first time reading Robin Carr. Can't wait to read so many more!!

Narrator Christina Moore did a fabulous job with the characters! I will definitely be looking for more audio books narrated by her.

Rip Tides (Lei Crime Series Book 9) continues the personal stories of Hawaiian police detectives-- Lei Texeira and her husband Michael Stevens -- as well as the latest homicide case in which a surfing star has drowned under suspicious circumstances.

I can't get enough of Lei, Michael and their extended family. Narrator Sara Malia Hatfield enhances the experience with her wonderful performance, capturing the characters and the island dialect.
