Nothing could have prepared Jay Granger for the arrival of two FBI agents at her door - or for the news they brought. Her ex-husband, Steve, had been in a terrible accident that had left him gravely injured. The FBI needed Jay to confirm his identity. The man Jay finds lying in the hospital bed is almost unrecognizable. Exhausted and afraid, Jay tentatively declares that he is Steve Crossfield. But the man who awakens from the coma is not at all as Jay remembers Steve.

Where does Carolina Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I found Carolina Girl one of the most enjoyable books The characters were very well written that they felt you could relate to their emotions that went through out the story I had purchase the book on the sale buy 3 and pay for 2 and I have gone back and bought the other books in the series.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sam I think we always thinks as the women with the deep emotional feelings and a lot of the love story are written from that perspective but he has deep feelings for Meg and although he was afraid to express them at first he was able to open up and let his feelings be known and take the chance of being hurt

Have you listened to any of Sophie Eastlake’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No but I enjoyed her narration very much

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Sam flew to Raleigh to pick up Meg and she got off the plane and he was waiting and just gave her that funny smile

Any additional comments?

I would recommend the series to anyone looking for a enjoyable listen that revolves around a family and the different problems that life brings to a family dealing with love, divorce, single parenthood, second love and marriage. The family unit in today's society

Would you consider the audio edition of Top Secret Twenty-One to be better than the print version?

I really enjoy this novel as there was a nice play between Ranger and Joe Morelli with Stephanie I really enjoy the emotional sorta tug of feelings between the two men for Stephanie and I love the way Lorelei King said Babe the influx of the word does say a whole lot with out voicing more than the one word

What was one of the most memorable moments of Top Secret Twenty-One?

when Ranger threw the Russian over the wall in the garage to the ground below saving Stephanie

Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favorite?

Ranger

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes and will listen to more than once

Any additional comments?

I love all of the Stephanie Plum books and I Lorelei King as the narrator if someone else was to narrator them now I don't think I could enjoy them as much

Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine.

Would you listen to The Wanderer again? Why?

I enjoyed the book and hope Miss Carr expands the series into a on going series as she did in the Virgin River Books The characters were real and the different emotions and difficulties they encounter during the story and their reactions were believeable

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wanderer?

When Mac realize Gina was going on a date with the new doctor

What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

I like the sound of her voice and the different inflection she uses to speak the different characters

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes because I enjoyed it but you can easily do it in more than one and still follow the story line without losing any of it

Any additional comments?

Another good one for Robyn Carr
