Publisher's Summary

Kara has serious doubts about herself after the birth of twins. She had no idea it would be so hard taking care of one baby, let alone two. With her self-esteem fading into oblivion, she's forced to choose between being a mom and having the career she always wanted. Kara is stubborn and refuses to ask anyone for help, even her husband.

Dave loves his wife and new daughters more than anything, but since the girls were born, he feels Kara slipping further away from him. Will Kara realize she doesn't have to conquer the world alone and find her way back to Dave? Will her meddling mother-in-law use this opportunity to sabotage her and Dave's marriage?

Marriage Therapy

This book 2 is much like book 1 in the series as it's about a married couple "on the rocks" who get some good advice from their neighbors on Eveiller Drive. What happens next is very explicit make-up sex, tastefully done, and everyone gets a "happy ending."

Dave for the Win!

What makes this so darn sexy? When Dave stands up for his wife! I really enjoyed that snippet. That mother in law is vicious! This is a shorter story but still packs all the punches! I did listen to this on audio.

Relatable

Melanie James’s short story about meddling family was relatable in so many ways! Thank goodness Kara’s husband Dave was so supportive and patient in their relationship!! Gah!! Dave’s mother was the mother-in-law from Hell!!👿 It’s wonderful to see successful solutions to marital issues. Hollie Jackson’s performance was great.

Relatable

I feel like this is a very relatable book. I'm sure many women feelt his way after giving birth. Especially to twins. I've read two books in this series so far and both have been great. Very humbling.

Real Couples, Real Situations

Would you consider the audio edition of Kara & Dave to be better than the print version?

I love listening to audio books while I am working on things around the house, or out and about. Holly Jackson's reading just tops the cake. Love her reading work.

What did you like best about this story?

I really like this series of short stories. They are focused on real women with real issues that have normal martial problems. They are hot little numbers that can spark some great ideas.

Loving this series!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Kara & Dave to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version, only because I absolutely love listening to Hollie Jackson tell the story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Kara.

What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?

I love how she brings the story and the characters to life.

Any additional comments?

I could really relate to Kara. Having twins myself you go through many emotions. Not feeling pretty anymore and thinking your husband feels the same way you do about yourself. I love how this series examines the real problems that occur in a marriage, and yet the couple's love for each other prevail above all else.

Communication in the couple 101

The title says it all. This story is all about daring to talk about what is wrong or what we perceive as wrong in the couple. I loved how the group of friends is also an essential part of this story.

Kara & Dave

I am loving this series! Melanie James has her own soap opera on Eveiller Drive, and each story has something that is easy to relate to. These couples are so true to life, she could be writing about any of us! This story features Kara who recently had twins. She is struggling with being a new mom, her new figure and that feeling of losing her identity. With this slump, her confidence is low and she doesn't feel desirable. Dave, her husband sees her in completely different eyes. When Kara and Dave get the chance to have a weekend away, will they find their new normal? These nuggets are the perfect listen for my walks. I am completely invested in the story, love the friendships these women on the street have and the way Melanie James solves their problems. It's steam and real life all melded together!

Holly Jackson brings it all to life with a fabulous narration. She is wonderful and her storytelling is spot on. I love her voices and she is perfectly cast.
