Loved this story when I read it and finally getting to listen to it in audio is amazing. This story will touch your heart and make you fall more in love with all the LNF characters. JM Madden did an outstanding job with the story and the narrator she chose did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life

Lora O'Neil left a life of abuse to make a new start for herself and her daughter. When her ex hires Lost and Found Investigative Service to track her down, she's left reeling both physically and emotionally. The private detective that had been watching her for the past couple of months did finally come to her rescue, but does that mean she should now trust him to help her turn their lives around? The sexy former marine makes her body feel things she thought she'd never feel for a man again, but she just can't imagine what it would take for her to heal enough to ever say yes.

This is one of my favorite series and I was so excited to see to see it has now come to audio.
As a veteran reading about wounded warriors and seeing them land on their feet (so to speak) with a purpose in life is awesome. I already snagged the whole series that is out I love them so much

My name is Venus. I'm a 200-year old killing machine and I'm trading in my daggers and sword for a sparkly dress and an obscene swimsuit. Tiny strips of Lycra are not my typical battle wear, but when in Oklahoma... Armed with a fairly decent attitude, two debatably heterosexual insane old ladies, a woman I'd wanted to kill less than eight hours ago, and the possible love of my undead life, I'm in over my head with this. Of course I have no clue what this is going to entail, but that's never stopped me before.

With every book in this series I always wonder how she can top her last one then she goes and does it and blows my mind.
As always be careful when listening to this book while eating or drinking as you may end up spitting your food or drink out. Same as while driving proceed with caution as fellow drivers may wonder why you are laughing uncontrollably
I can't wait for the next one in this series

What do you get when you combine a three-headed monster named Charles; a rotund, gay, dancing Demon named Doug; a culinary disaster baked by Mother Nature; a celibate premarital councilor named Jeff; an offer from Satan that's impossible to refuse; and Steve Perry? You get the royal wedding from hell - or, to be more accurate, possibly in hell. All I want to do is marry the Vampyre of my dreams, with my closest friends and family in attendance. Yep, I know nuptials in the undead world are unheard of, but I'm still hanging on to my humanity if only by a thread.

Where does The Beauty of Perhaps rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of my favorite audiobooks I've ever listened to this year. The story line while some might say predictable it was one of the best stories I've read this year. While it was a romance it was more of a woman finding who she was from who she thought she was.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Beauty of Perhaps?

When Molly released she could paint and finally was able to do get a painting done

What about Elizabeth Klett’s performance did you like?

I loved how she brought the Scottish language and sounds to life. This is one of the only times I've said that the audio version is much better than the print or ebook version. The audio version brings the Scottish language to life so much better than if you are reading it.

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

I just feel in love with this book from the beginning. There was so many times I was moved by this story its hard to pick just one.

Any additional comments?

I was gifted a copy of this book by the author but that in no way effected my review as I would have happily given a credit to purchase this book. I feel in love so much I've already purchases the ebook version. This is a story well worth your time

Would you listen to Blair's Destiny again? Why?

Yes I would as I really love the characters and the series

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jamie. I just loved how much she grown into this timeframe she had been dropped into

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

Yes, It was wonderful as she also narratored book one and I loved hearing the same voices I fell in love with in book one

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

yes when Jamie and Jack were searching for Blair to help her overcome the darkness

This is part of a series so we are left hanging in the end. It wasn't a horrible way to end it but it does leave us wanting more of the story. I love these characters so I can't wait to read/listen to more of them.
Well worth a credit

While I was gifted a free copy for an honest review I would have gladly given a credit for this book. While this is the second book in the series I did not feel like I was missing out on anything by not reading book one first. I am very interested in reading book one and three now that I've read book 2 and so enjoyed it
