I had followed and listened to many of the Chesapeake Diaries through the years with a excellent narrator. This narrator was disappointing and the voices ran together. Her high pitched squeaky tones made the story very hard for my listening pleasure. After awhile I purchased the book and read. The story was great and learning how the other Islanders were woven in this chapter of family and friends of Cannonball. The story was beautifully written and flowed well as the older families from earlier episodes mentioned. For future audio books of this series of the Chesapeake Diary books (if it is continued) please return to Xe Sands .

Small towns share positive and negative relationships. This book showed the interaction of small town families and the towns movers and shakers. Great reading and movement without hoping the author would "get on with the activity" I enjoyed this book and hope readers share my experience.

A fabulously fun, romantic comedy from a dynamic new talent. Nothing fazes Taylor Donovan - not in the courtroom and not in her personal life. So when she’s assigned to coach People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” for his role in the next big legal drama, she refuses to fall for the Hollywood heartthrob’s charms. Even if he is the Jason Andrews.

Attorney Syneda Walters and fellow attorney Clayton Madaris are just friends…the last two people likely to end up as lovers. Syneda holds all men at arm's length because of the father whose name she never knew. Clayton has always been a playboy, and no woman has ever come close to keeping his interest for very long. Things suddenly heat up between them when Syneda impulsively accepts Clayton's invitation to join him for a Florida vacation, and is shocked by how much passion she feels.

Investigative reporter Christy Madaris doesn't want to complicate her life with romance. She made that mistake once when she believed Alex Maxwell's promise to marry her. True, Alex made that promise when Christy was just a teenager. But she believed him with all her heart - and when Alex laughed it off years later, Christy was crushed.

Many have complained about Ohms narrating. If any of these readers have lived where accents are different their complaints have NO meaning. Accents are different from Maine to all the states. I enjoy this deep rich voice of this narrator. Please continue to use him. The American English language is beautiful in All of the state.

Mitch Peabody was learning pretty fast that the life of a private detective was nothing like the movies. He’d envisioned a world of tough-talking detectives and smart-mouthed, stunning dames. Instead he saw case after case of cheating husbands, suspicious wives and unsuspecting mistresses…until she walked through the door.

It is so disconcerting when the story is top notch but the narrator is unable to tell the story. Book should be given away until writer selects a narrator to do the story justice.

Birdie Cousins has thrown herself into the details of her daughter Chess's lavish wedding, from the floating dance floor in her Connecticut back yard to the color of the cocktail napkins. Like any mother of a bride-to-be, she is weathering the storms of excitement and chaos, tears and joy. But Birdie, a woman who prides herself on preparing for every possibility, could never have predicted the late-night phone call from Chess, abruptly announcing that she's cancelled her engagement.
