Diane Chamberlain magically transports me to her settings and introduces vibrant and complex characters. Such was the case with THE STOLEN MARRIAGE. It’s 1944 when folks are dealing with food rations, racial discrimination, and polio outbreaks. Chamberlain touches on all three as our protagonist Tess DeMello makes an error that lands her in Hickory, North Carolina. Poignant, inspiring and fascinating I devoured THE STOLEN MARRIAGE.
DEVIL’S CUT by J.R. Ward brilliantly concludes the Bourbon Kings series. This beautiful, page-turning saga held me captive. It features the Bradford family and their Bourbon dynasty which is poised to collapse amidst scandal, murder, and betrayal.
THE GARDEN OF SMALL BEGINNINGS written by Abbi Waxman and narrated by Emily Rankin is a tale that will resonate with anyone who has ever loved, lost, raised a child, had siblings or simply tried to find their way in this thing we call life. Brilliant, heartwarming and filled with moments that will have you laughing aloud and shedding a tear.d shedding a tear.
Slated for my 2017 top ten audio list, THE NIGHT THE LIGHTS WENT OUT delivered an addictive, heart-warming, and suspenseful tale that kept me listening. Grab a cup of coffee and let me take you to the quiet town of Sweet Apple, Georgia where gossip and southern hospitality go hand in hand.
Early this year, I listened to and loved Britt-Marie was Here. I then added all of Fredrik Backman’s audiobooks to my wishlist. Thanks to an Audible fairy, I was gifted a copy of A Man Called Ove. The ratings do not lie, once again I was transported as Backman made me fall in love with a grumpy old man named Ove and the folks in his community.
