#Review – A GIRL’S GUIDE TO MOVING ON by Debbie Macomber

A Girl's Guide to Moving On (New Beginnings, #2)A Girl’s Guide to Moving On by Debbie Macomber

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An enjoyable read that features two women that comfort each other in trying times, even though they should not be friends as one is the mother of the ex-husband of the other. At times I did not like Nikolai as he seemed a little overbearing but I craved his bread every time it was discussed. The irony of Jake being upset that Nichole moved on had me fuming to backhand Jake – he moved on while he was still married, at least Nichole was divorced and took her time. Great weekend read for the cabin!

#Review – EVERY FIFTEEN MINUTES by Lisa Scottoline

Every Fifteen MinutesEvery Fifteen Minutes by Lisa Scottoline

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars – Wow! This book had me guessing until the end and who I thought was responsible turned out not to even be a party to the incident! How is that for twisted! What a suspenseful read during driving. The narrator had good influx of tones for the story and made the story come to life.

This review of based on the audio version.

#Review – MODERN LOVERS by Emma Straub

Modern LoversModern Lovers by Emma Straub

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This review is of the audio book and narrator.

I really struggled with the narrator of this book. I enjoyed the premise of the story but the narrator really strained me to keep my interest. The reader could relate to the drama of the characters and that nothing seemed too out of touch with reality, which I really look for in a book.

I really wish the audiobook makers would have an announcement when each disc ends so the listener doesn’t re-listen to parts of the book. It is frustrating to the listener as we cannot watch the numbers on the CD drive since we are driving and we listen to the beginning of the CD again until we realize that we already heard that part.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After hearing a lot of positive talk about this book, I thought I would check it out. Due to time constraints, I listened to the book. I make this disclosure as a narrator can have a reflection on a review. The story line was great – I come from a small town so I can understand the dynamics and issues when the ‘big’ government comes in to make changes. Even though I no longer live in my small town, anything to goes on there still has an effect on me. You never leave the small town, just as this story tells. The story was well written and with great detail but left me wanting more. The epilogue did answer some outstanding questions and finished the story.

#Review – THE RUMOR by Elin Hilderbrand

The RumorThe Rumor by Elin Hilderbrand

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a pleasant story about just how rumors can cause unnecessary drama in your life. What may seem to be evident is not always the truth. Oh the dramas of living in a small town and the quick spread of gossip – be it true or not. Growing up in a small town, I know the feeling of the spread of gossip! The audio narrators did a great job telling the story and brought the book to life. I wish more publishers would utilize a small announcement when the disc is done as I find myself re-listening to the story and after a few minutes realizing I already heard this part then switching, which is very frustrating.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you are looking for a thrilling listen, this is a good book for you. Just be sure to be ready to listen for an extended period of time because you will want to know more about the life of Milly and her mother. You may think you know what is going on but as you listen, you begin to second-guess what you think. A gripping story that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat while you listen! Maybe listen when you are cleaning because you won’t realize how long you are cleaning.

#Review – STING by Sandra Brown

StingSting by Sandra Brown

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was suspenseful listen that I found myself sitting in the car longer just to listen for a few more minutes. Not only was there action suspense but romantic suspense. The narrator did a great job telling the story. The twist of who Shaw is was interesting, which allows the reader to understand why Shaw acts a certain way with Jordie. The story was gripping for the most part but at times, the details were a little drawn out. Suspenseful listen for a long road trip!
