A sudden loss in Carson Alden's life brings with it an unexpected surprise that carries him home to Turner Junction. Though it's the town he was born to, it's also a place he barely remembers. Lauren Hendricks, a local real estate agent, will hand Carson the keys to his house, helping him unlock the secret of why he was taken from Turner Junction after the untimely death of his parents. But Carson will find more find than a new home and a new life; he will unwittingly give rest to the town's one remaining legend.

I got this review copy via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This story went from present to past to present and all things in between. The narrator did not show many emotions and put me to sleep many times but I hit rewind and completed the book. I am not too sure that I got the whole of the story. Billy, Marna, Hank, and so many characters to keep in mind to ensure that you understood the story.

I got this free copy via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. I found this story complicated with many twists and turns. Some of the scenes were hard to understand. The narrator was sometimes dull and monotonous. Other areas she inserted the emotions. I am not sure how I felt about this story.

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. The heroine of the story was spoiled and the hero was strange. I have not read any of this author's books but this one was developed well with several plot twists. Love from childhood into adulthood is rare yet it was presented well. The hero is aware of her yet knows she is off limits until she comes of age and gets herself into trouble. He saves her but that is not the end of the story. The narrator was good and did not take away from the story.

Zany families, eccentric friends, and ne'er-do-well neighbors inhabit the labyrinthine lives of three women friends as they grapple with real-world events in one "Golden Year". An unwelcome visit from local law enforcement, a younger friend's romantic chaos, and the death of a parent combine with daily mundanities - laundry, scones, and senior sex - to create a walloping, raucous listen.

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This story had so many characters talking with such similar names that I was hard put to know if the animals were talking or the humans. I listened to the whole book because I wanted to know the outcome of Bruce's trial. So many people are unfairly incarcerated because someone was angry with them and framed them and this story brought that point out. It also showed the many flaws in man's justice system and how a person's life can be ruined because of innuendo and lies. The women were funny, the animals funnier but I needed to have a session with the shrink after listening to this story, especially since I was listening to it until 3 a.m. in the morning. the narrator got confused with the voices at times, but overall did not take away from the story. There were several mini stories in the book as well.

It is filled with tidbits and little nuggets of information that can help you change your life. It is not a one time listen. You will have to go back and listen again. Then bookmark certain spots so you can hear them over and over again.

Is there somewhere to hide from the past? Dutch Mulvaney, a hero who will spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair, now carves sea creatures from driftwood and signs them as "Beach Bum." His relocation from the East Coast to the small coastal town of Somewhere in Oregon was a desperate attempt to salvage his sanity and dignity. Now, after a year of solitude, he finally feels ready to venture back into society. Taylor Jones enjoys her job as a waitress at Mama Pink's Diner, the most popular eatery in Somewhere. Daily, she thanks the universe for Edna Pink, the owner. Without Edna's help she could very well be six feet under, with her two precious sons being raised by a crime lord. When a disabled man enters the diner she gets a premonition that her life is about to change. Should she remain in the town she loves, or run yet again?

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. I loved this story. The interactions between the characters were very well done. I loved how the X'x still loved each other and could work together even though they could never be husband and wife. The way the kids and the main character got along is so sweet. The extra ghost really made the story come alive. I have not listened to the two that came before this one but did not get lost in the story. Again it was an enjoyable listen. The narrator kept me on the edge of my seat and even though I started listening late at night, I could not stop until I got to the end.

A Chinook Indian by heritage, Dawn was orphaned and given to a white family as a slave. They raised her like one of their own, alongside their daughter, Laura. Dawn soon finds herself falling for Jake, who recently moved to Silverpines, following his brother from Texas. Jake gets to know Dawn well and soon realizes he has fallen in love with her. The catch? Though society had come a long way, it still held prejudices against Native Americans and the whites who married them.
