Her Every Wish by Courtney Milan

Her Every WishNarrated by Rosalyn Landor

As was the case with Once Upon a Marquess, the book in Courtney Milan’s new Worth Saga that precedes this novella, reactions to Her Every Wish have been mixed. That said, I found it to be more cohesive in many ways than the novel. Because of the shorter format, the storyline is simpler and less complex – not that there aren’t complexities, because there are – but with fewer characters and fewer obvious foibles, there is more room to concentrate on the relationship between the protagonists, something I felt lacking in the previous story.

Sweet Little Lies by Jill Shalvis

Sweet Little LiesNarrated by Karen White

Pru had a hard life before Sweet Little Lies opens – her parents were killed in a car accident they caused while driving drunk, when she was a teenager. In addition, the accident also affected several other families. Pru has lived the last several years with that guilt as well as the grief of losing her family, but has chosen to take the glass-half-full approach and help the other victims recover their lives in many ways – she’s helped with financial and emotional support and she’s turned into a self-acclaimed “Fun Whisperer” to bring joy to them and everyone else in her life.

When she runs into Finn O’Riley, though, Read the rest of this entry »

The Fulfillment by LaVyrle Spencer

The FulfillmentI first read The Fulfillment in 2008, although it was originally published in 1979. This was a completely different plot from any romance novel I had read at the time – and I still find it unique. There are 3 protagonists, Jonathan Gray, his wife Mary and his brother Aaron. When the Gray brothers’ parents were killed, the will stipulated that the house went to Aaron, and the farmland to Jonathan. Mary was from Chicago, and came to their rural Midwest area to visit her aunt when she met and then married Jonathan.

Jonathan and Mary and Aaron share the house and the land and its bounty. Read the rest of this entry »

The Summer Before the War by Helen Simonson

the summer before the warNarrated by Fiona Hardingham

I saw a favourable review of the print version of this book recently and it inspired me to request the audiobook to review here at AudioGals. The Summer Before the War is not strictly a romance. It contains a subtle romance, yes and that romance does end happily but the story follows a number of characters from and associated with the small town of Rye in Sussex – and not all of them have a happy tale. I do recommend keeping the tissues handy.

Beatrice Nash is the daughter of a writer. She travelled extensively with her father, but when he died Read the rest of this entry »

Earls Just Want to Have Fun by Shana Galen

Earls Just Want to Have FunNarrated by Beverley A. Crick

A few months back, I listened to and reviewed The Rogue You Know, the second book in Shana Galen’s Covent Garden Cubs series. At that point, I’d heard narrator Beverley A. Crick only one other time and had been sufficiently impressed by her performance to want to listen to her again. I’ve since listened to her a few more times, and as I’d enjoyed both story and performance in Rogue, I decided to back-track and pick up its predecessor, Earls Just Want to Have Fun.

The book is a kind of mix of Cinderella and Pygmalion, Read the rest of this entry »
