    Publisher’s Summary

    My Review

    A Compelling Family Tale

    When the Wife Cheats is a book that tells a compelling tale of a beautiful family, broken by infidelity. It started with a few facts how about society carefully avoids the topic of female infidelity. It then carried on to tell a love story between a man and a woman who were really attracted to each other. That attraction turned into love, which eventually led to marriage and raising a family.

    Frank Zaccari, once again, got me hooked on his gripping story-telling ability. The dialogues were good, with each character having its own unique voice. Thanks to the well-performed narration, the characters truly came to life.

    The book was filled with love, hopes, dreams, success, perseverance and forgiveness – all of which were contradicted by failures, struggles, lies and infidelity.

    No marriage is perfect, that is true – and the same goes with families. But the main character’s love for his family was truly unconditional and the sacrifices he made were applaudable. I got carried away a few times and shed tears for the girls when their family was broken. I was expecting that, of course, because of the title. But when it happened, it was really heart-breaking.

    If you have not read/listened to the other books written by Frank Zaccari, you should. The Battaglia’s are my favorite fictional Italian family. Thank you Frank, for this wonderful story. Thank you Russel Archey for a great performance.

    I have listened to a few books written by John Holt. And I have to say that this book has become one of my favorites. The characters of the book were each given their own highlights in the story – it made me connect with each of them more. Though some parts of the novel happened during World War II, it was not a war story. It was intriguing from the start and I got really hooked to it.

    The narration was great, as well. Ben Werling has an attention-grabbing kind of voice and he was really good at doing different accents. The background sound was a brilliant addition. I liked it that I was hearing train whistles, water splashes and other sounds – because it made the book more interesting and entertaining for me.

    This book truly deserves Five-Star reviews! Highly recommended!

    Interview with Majken Selinder Nilsson

    Author Majken Selinder Nilsson

    Majken:  My inspiration for A Good Kind of Crazy started when I began watching a TV show on Netflix that, when I researched it, had spawned a lot of speculation with the fans about the two lead actors’ private and love lives. Because of their amazing on-screen chemistry, devoted viewers were busy on social media platforms, without the benefit of much available personal information, trying to decipher whether or not they were a couple in “Real Life”.

    The situation got me pondering if there was perhaps more to their story than they chose to disclose. As I began to imagine all of the different scenarios, the story line for the novel developed, and then demanded to be written. I actually composed the first page in my head while showering one cold January morning. The most shocking part in all of this was that I hadn’t ever seriously considered writing a book, but it quickly morphed into a personal challenge, just to see if I could do it.

    My Review

    A Heart-Breaking Story

    Beyond Broken Pencils is a fictional story that talks about one of the most heart-breaking realities of our time – school shootings in America. Julie Gilbert related a tale that was based on events that have been making the whole world sad and everyone wondering why such madness happen. I, personally, was moved by this book because I have children who goes to school and I worry for their safety everyday. We are not in America and I hope that no such thing will ever happen to our schools here.

    I like the book because it gave each characters their own highlights, particularly the main one. I cried a few times, and have asked myself if I am doing everything I can to support and love my kids. This book will do that to you, make you analyze how you are dealing with the children and teens in your life. They are the most vulnerable individuals in our society and it is about time to focus, not just on what, but also on HOW they are doing.

    I had a bit of an issue with the narration, but the story really made up for that.

  • Review of Emma’s Journey

    Emma's Journey audiobook cover art

    Emma’s Journey Into the Unknown

    Emma’s Journey was a good listen. It was refreshing because it was truly heart-warming and it defined friendship as something that can last – even between two completely different individuals. David and Emma’s relationship was not conventional, but they managed to keep it; and it even went on beyond death – not in a creepy way :-).

    I love that the story revolved mostly on Emma’s unexpectedly discovery of David’s past life in his small hometown rather than on the past that they shared – in that way, the story stayed true to its theme. I also admired the way the author introduced each character, giving each one of them their own highlights in the story.

    All in all, the story is something that I would highly recommend to anyone needing an inspirational read/listen. Alyssa Baumann narrated this book to perfection. I love how soothing and relaxing her voice was – without making me fall asleep.

    Fatal Reaction, Survival is another great story from MA Hollstein matched by an equally great narration by Tim Jackson.

    The main characters from book one were joined by others. These people also survived the infection and were all scared of the looming danger above. As they try to live day to day, they were forced to face scarier circumstances and individuals.

    The suspense was definitely rising as the surviving humans realized that the threat they face was way beyond what they imagined.

    The big twist in the first book was accounted for and then another twist was introduced. Brilliant! Making me eager to start listening to the third book.

    “Suicides? Accidents? Murders!”

    Diagnosis Murder is the seventh book in the Kendall series by John Holt. Tom Kendall is a private investigator and he works with his ever reliable assistant, Molly. Together they solve crimes and help the victims and their families get the justice they deserve.

    In the book, Diagnosis Murder, Kendall and Molly, once again, embark on a complicated investigation – multiple murders. Some of these crimes were initially concluded as either suicide or accidents.

    It was too concerning though because the victims were doctors! These medical professionals were either dying or missing. and they have one thing in common – they were all working on something really important that would revolutionalize cancer treatment and therapy.

    John Holt, as usual, managed to entertain me with his unique ability to come up with twists and turns that made me hooked until the last line. The narration helped a lot in giving justice, both to the story and the characters.

    Highly recommended book!

  • Review of Inside the Spaghetti Bowl

    Inside the Spaghetti Bowl audiobook cover art

    Publisher’s Summary

    Like many of the “baby boomers”, my family faced the difficult task of burying our mother. The audiobook is based on the last eight days of our mother’s life. It is a celebration of life, family, culture, and tradition. As my relatives came to pay their last respects, we heard so many wonderful stories about the trials and sacrifices made by our parents and grandparents so we could live the American dream.

    This is our story, this is your story. It is a story for every beating heart that has loved or has been loved. It is the story about the struggles and pains endured by those virtuous individuals who poured their lives into ours and filled our years with intimate memories and a gladdened heart. It is the story you will want to pass down to your children and grandchildren.

    This is an audiobook about family and unconditional love through the good times and bad. It is about a family who is and always will be there for each other no matter what. We hope you see your family in this audiobook and that the memories make you smile.

    My Audible Review

    Family, Food and Love

    Inside the Spaghetti Bowl is an inspiring story about a family’s journey through life, love and loss.

    Frank Zaccari wrote a book of wonderful memories and enlightening tales filled with lessons to learn and laughters to share.

    There are several highlights that I found to be truly inspirational. These include:
    – Carmela and Frank Zaccari’s love story
    – The story of Frank’s childhood hero, Bobby (aka Superman)
    – The Christmas feasts
    -The Grandparents’ stories
    – The Zaccari Coat of Arms – a true symbol of Life with Integrity
    – The chapter dedicated to the storyline of one of my favorite books, Five Years to Live (also by Frank Zaccari)

    Anne Alder provided an enjoyable and easy-to-listen narration as she gave voices to all the Zaccaris and the Mancuzos, and the rest of this lovable Italian-American family.

    Publisher’s Summary

    Key West. Hemingway. Murder.

    When private investigator Simon Wolfe is hired to follow his friend’s wife under suspicion of adultery, he could never have guessed it would lead him into a friendship with the world’s leading writer, Ernest Hemingway. Nor could he have predicted the strange and disturbing twists the investigation would take.

    The case accelerates quickly when the wife is found murdered in a Key West hotel and discovered to have a secret life. But that revelation is downright boring as the plot thickens with increasingly bizarre revelations, capped off with a macabre ending no one saw coming.

    Based on actual events, Night at Key West is a wild ride into history and intrigue, populated by many true-to-life characters and places.

    My Audible Review:

    Murder in Island Paradise

    I enjoyed listening to this book. Night at Key West was a good crime story based on real events that occured in non-fictional places. Listening to this tale by Craig Hart was like getting a lesson on a piece of US detective/crime history.

    The characters were given individual personalities and interesting characteristics, thanks to the convincing narration of Tom Jordan.

     

     

  • The Joys of Audiobook Listening

     

    turned on black samsung smartphone between headphones

    Photo by Vlad Bagacian on Pexels.com

    Some people say that listening to audiobooks is not the same as reading books. It is actually the same argument that was raised when eBooks started to dominate the reading scene. After a while though, more and more book readers discovered the eBooks provide a more convenient means of enjoying books and learning new things.

    With audiobook, that kind of convenience was simply upgraded. By listening, a reader does not need to hold a book or a reading device. The device can stay hidden inside a pocket or a bag and then the “reader” can multitask or just relax on a couch, hammock or bed while getting transported into a whole new world.

    You can enjoy your book even when you are cooking, cleaning the house, driving, mowing your lawn or changing your baby’s diaper. In other words, audiobooks simply brought reading up to the next level.

    Some of the Audioboks that I highly recommend include:

Her love is interrupted by her past that ultimately has a lasting effect on all who are involved. The Boy Across the Creek has twists and turns that continuously show the power of love.

    My Review

    Love Story and More

    The Boy Across the Creek is undoubtedly a love story; a modern fairy tale. It is also a story of family ties and neighborly closeness. The book takes you into a rollercoaster of emotions as it talks about falied relationships, mistakes made, wrong decisions and bad to worst scenarios.

    On the other hand, its is also full of romantic tales, chivalrous acts and dreams coming true. The twists and turns just keep coming and kept me on my toes during the entire ride/listen.

    The narration was great. It was entertaining, giving each character its own individual and distinct characteristic.

    Overall, this is a highly recommended audiobook for people who are searching for something inspiring and uplifting.

    Lost Illumination

    Publisher’s Summary

    When an eerie voice interrupts Christian’s ordinary life, the familiar scene of the Fall Valley Boarding School crumbles into uncertainty. Soon, this boy’s worries are shifted from the troubles of his past to the terrifying disturbances that haunt him at every turn.

    In a matter of days, the menacing voices and shadowy shapes become the least of his troubles. Christian decides he must face his foes or live forever in fear. In doing so, a mysterious force drags him into a strange and unfamiliar land where the unnatural terrors are somehow perfectly catered to torment him.

    It isn’t long before Christian is discovered by the inhabitants of this new realm. A peculiar but seemingly trustworthy fellow leads him to safety and introduces him to an ancient kingdom that has been lost for ages. Christian may think himself a victim of circumstance, but he soon discovers he has been chosen to determine the fate of an ancient people.

    The task may seem impossible, but if Christian does not succeed, hundreds of lives may be lost…and billions cursed forever.

    The terrors are relentless, the secrets are endless, and the expectations that are thrown upon this 13-year-old boy are almost overwhelming. The past may have stolen his hope for the future, but Christian must decide if he has the courage to abandon his doubts and seize the path to a truly unfathomable destiny.

    After a somewhat slow start the pace picks up and had me hooked. The writing is good and the storyline moves along quite well.

    There are twists aplenty in the story and just when you think all is well and Christian has triumphed another twist in the tale surprises you.

    Hounded

    Hounded tells the story of an orphaned young woman, Claire, who found herself moving from the city she grew up in to live in a quiet little town with her aunt and uncle. As she was starting her journey towards her new life, she found an orphaned puppy. Feeling sympathy for the dog, Claire took it in. Soon, she developed a loving companionship with her pet.

    Little did she know that what she actually adopted was not an ordinary dog. It was a magical one. That was just the first of the many exciting twists of the story.

    What I like most about this book is that it provided information about the difference between ordinary dogs and other creatures of the magical world, particularly werewolves and demon hounds.

    My Audible Review

    A different kind of love story. A story of two lost souls finding each other and finding love and comfort with each other.

    It was a fast-paced story and very informative, as well. The narration was good. At some parts though the narrator talked too fast, like in a hurry.

    We all want to find that one great true love, right? In this book, that was a big double bonus! Two stories of true love in one book! I just love the way the story started with the main character living her boring and sad life and eventually transformed it into an exciting and fulfilling one.

    The author managed to convey the importance of family and loyalty. At the same time, she also reminded us that true love can truly conquer all.

    Love’s Dangerous Challenge

    By: Ellynore Seybold

    Publisher’s Summary:

    During the Reign of Terror in France in the late 1700s, the common people amused themselves by watching the heads of the nobility roll, severed by the guillotine. When Eduard Saulnier falls in love with Countess Annise de Brisson in 1793, he fears that, as a commoner, he will never be allowed to court her. But Annise is staying with her aunt because her parents have been sized by the revolutionaries and condemned to die by the guillotine. Eduard approaches the old lady for permission to court Annise, knowing his chances are slim. However, he is totally unprepared for the old countess’s answer–yes, he may court and marry Annise, after he gets her parents out of prison…any way he can.

    My Goodreads Review of the eBook:

    Love’s Dangerous Challenge tells the story of love, courage and sacrifices. It is historical, which allows the readers to learn while enjoying a nicely-written love story.

    The one thing that I really liked about the story is that it gave focus on the importance of family. It makes one realize that if you have a family that supports and loves you, you can face the worse challenges (even death).

    We all want to end up with someone who would not just love us, but also would protect us and risk his lfe for us, right? The hero of this book is that someone! He went to do an impossible task and ended up with the girl of his dreams. A truly romantic tale.

    Finally, the author was able to convey that forgiveness is the key to happiness.

    My Audible Review:

    Five Years to Live is a nicely written story about a young man with a very promising future. It also talks of a couple, so much in love but was forced by circumstances to go their separate ways.
    The book also tells about the power of determination, perseverance and a solid support group.
    It is inspirational in such a way that it makes you realize that no matter how hard and harsh you think life is, you can always turn things around and make it work in your favor.
    Good story done with equally good narration.

    “Suspense, lots of action and an unexpected twist!”

    Fatal Reaction, The Beginning was written in great details making you feel like you are watching rather than just listening. The narrator did a really good job particularly with the characters’ voices.

    At first I thought it’s just another zombie-apocalyptic story, but the big twist towards the end was something I really did not expect.

    Mike  – Strong, determined, and loyal to his duties as a Sherriff.  He also stayed positive in the midst of the unexplainable disaster.

    Ellie – Ellie was sweet and soft-hearted, though confused and seemed lost most of the time. An easy target for bad people.

    Bill  – The loving father who would do everything to keep his son safe.

    Amanda – Strong-willed woman whose survival instincts kept her alive despite being alone for most part of the story.
