Lara has only one thought for her husband on their wedding day: I will bring your kingdom to its knees. A princess trained from childhood to be a lethal spy, Lara knows that the Bridge Kingdom represents both legendary evil - and legendary promise. The only route through a storm-ravaged world, the Bridge Kingdom controls all trade and travel between lands, allowing its ruler to enrich himself and deprive his enemies, including Lara’s homeland. So when she is sent as a bride under the guise of fulfilling a treaty of peace, Lara is prepared to do whatever it takes....

It was a little predictable (a lot). The ending passed me by without realizing it. Performances were fine. This book passed the time in my car. So that’s a good thing.

Every year the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues the abandoned children and delivers them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey.

Wow. This was so much fun. We are taking our 11 year old grandson on a road trip this summer, and this book is perfect. There is no swearing or sex. This is simply a great fun story with fabulous characters. And the narration is beyond great. Each character is instantly recognizable. Despite the fact that I thought this would be great for a kid, I could hardly wait to hear what happens next.

What if your first love came back on the scene...30 years later? After yet another disaster, Lorrie is calling time on online dating. She might be single in her 40s, but she's got a good job and wonderful children, and she's happy. This, Lorrie decides, is going to have to be enough. That is until she receives a very unexpected request from France. Antoine Rousseau, who had once turned a lonely French exchange trip into a summer of romance, wants to see her - after 30 years.

I quite enjoyed this. The middle aged, trying and hoping to be happy in the second half of life. A gentle little story. The ups and downs, the appreciation of a woman’s own person and body. Learning to love oneself and others.

Could you survive a digital detox? This hilarious new romantic comedy from the author of The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart is perfect for fans of Lucy Diamond and Sophie Kinsella. Daisy Hobson lives her whole life online. A marketing manager by day, she tweets her friends, Instagrams every meal and arranges (frankly, appalling) dates on Tinder. But when her social media obsession causes her to make a catastrophic mistake at work, Daisy finds her life going into free fall....

A couple times the story seemed to double back on itself, but then get sorted out. I enjoyed the general premise and storyline. Had some laughs. Enjoyed it. And happy I am not on Twitter!

It’s true. I’m not what most people would call “pretty” and, well, high school was rough. Fast forward ten years and life is good, until a bunch of jerks think it’s hilarious to put the “butterface” (AKA me) on a wedding Kiss Cam with the hottest guy ever - and that old humiliation hits hard. I recognize him immediately. The hottest cop in Waterbury and totally out of my league. But then he kisses me. And we totally forget the room, the crowd, everything. Then he tells everyone we’ve been dating for months.

The female narrator was very excellent. Intonation was spot on. He was good as well. First book I have experienced with male and female narration. Perfectly done. Loved the story. Which of us perfect? Great characters. I am getting the second book, as well.

To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

I personally loved the dog parts. The story was good and the reading was great. Kind of predictable, but that didn't take away from the story. I enjoyed from start to finish.
