Review & Audio Clip: Spring Fever by Mary Kaye Andrews (audio)

Spring Fever by Mary Kaye Andrews
Narrated by Kathleen McInerney
Macmillian Audio
2012
Length: 15.5 hours

From the back of the audio case: When you think the past is over and you've moved on in life, there's no harm in catching a little spring fever...is there?

Annajane Hudgens truly believes she is over her ex-husband, Mason Bayless, and she has absolutely no problem attending his wedding to Celia, the woman everyone in town adores. 

When fate intervenes and the wedding is called to a halt - Annajane wonders if maybe she's been given a second chance. Maybe everything happens for a reason. And maybe, just maybe, she wants Mason back.

But there are secrets afoot in this small town. Passcoe, North Carolina, is the home of the Quixie Cherry Soda, which has been in the Bayless family for generations. Anyone born in Passcoe is raised on cherry soda, but now, change is on the horizon.

Annajane soon sees that these changes can bring out the worst in people and uncover long-hidden family scandals. And even though there are people determined to keep Annajane from getting what she wants, happiness could be hers for the taking, and the life she once had with Mason in this sleepy little lake town could be in her future. That is, if she can find out what she's really made of and what really matters to her.

My thoughts: I've only read a few books by Mary Kaye Andrews so far and find them to be fun, quick reads. This time I tried the audio version of her new book and I loved it. It has the characteristic southern charm that I've come to enjoy reading about in Mary Kaye Andrews' books and is usually filled with some sassy characters.

Spring Fever is a book about second chances. Annajane and Mason were once married and now she's sitting in the church waiting for him to be married to Celia. As luck would have it, the wedding is interrupted when Sophie, Mason's daughter, gets ill. From that moment on, Annajane realizes she just might have another chance with Mason if she wants it. There are some bumps along the way and lots of twists and turns to keep you hooked, including many long-ago hidden secrets that come to light. Will Annajane and Mason be able to work out their past and find their way back to each before it's too late? And what about Annajane's impending wedding?

Mary Kaye Andrews does a great job of giving her characters unique personalities - there's Pokey, Annajane's best friend and Mason's sister, who is filled with spunk; Sophie, Mason's daughter is sweet and just a bit sassy at times; Celia, Mason's fiance, who is all about greed and power; and Annajane, who is filled with determination and sass. The other thing that I loved was that the descriptions of Passcoe and the Quixie plant made me feel as if I was right there - all I needed was a glass of some ice cold Quixie!

I'm looking forward to reading some of Mary Kaye Andrew's other books. I think they are the perfect books when you need something light to read or you just want to laugh out loud, which I did quite a few times while listening to Spring Fever. Have you read any books by Mary Kaye Andrews? If so, what's your favorite?

Audio Thoughts: I've listened to Kathleen McInerney a few times in the past and she never disappoints. In Spring Fever, she was able to give each character their own distinct voice, many of which I thought were spot on. I think my favorite was the voice she gave Celia - it was just whiny enough to have you disliking her character and it couldn't be more appropriate.

Bonus Material Thanks to Esther Bochner at Macmillan Audio, I have a clip of Spring Fever to share with you - http://media.us.macmillan.com/video/olmk/macmillanaudio/springfeverch1.mp3

It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (7.30.12)




It’s Monday What Are you Reading , hosted by Sheila, is the perfect way for me to begin my week and allows me to focus on what needs to be read and to see what I have or have not accomplished the previous week. I also enjoy discovering new books by visiting other participants blogs.

Where did the week go and how is it that August begins this week? I had such plans for my reading this summer and sadly, it doesn't seem to be panning out. And I don't foresee it getting much better with the Olympics going on. I do, however, have two upcoming events I will be participating in that might help. There's the Summer Wrap-Up Read-a-thon that runs from August 4 - August 12, and then the Wolf Hall Read-a-Long kicks off August 4th as well. This is the first time I am doing both a read-a-thon and a read-a-long so I'm not really sure what to expect, but I am excited for both.

Review & Giveaway: Gold by Chris Cleave (audio) (CLOSED)

Gold by Chris Cleave
Narrated by Emila Fox
Simon & Schuster Audio
2012
Length: 11.5 hours

From the back of the audio case: What would you sacrifice for the people you love?

Kate and Zoe met at nineteen when they both made the cut for the national training program in track cycling - a sport that demands intense focus, blinding exertion, and unwavering commitment. They are built to exploit the barest physical and psychological edge over equally skilled rivals, all of whom are fighting for the last one tenth of a second that separates triumph from despair. Now at thirty-two, the women are facing their last and biggest race: the 2012 Olympics. Each wants desperately to win gold, and each has more than a medal to lose.

Kate is the more naturally gifted, but the demands of her life have a tendency to slow her down. Her eight-year-old daughter Sophie dreams of the Death Star and of battling alongside the Rebels as evil white blood cells ravage her personal galaxy - she is fighting a recurrence of the leukemia that nearly killed her three years ago. Sophie doesn't want to stand in the way of her mum's Olympic dreams, but each day the dark forces of the universe seem to be massing against her. Devoted and self-sacrificing Kate knows her daughter is fragile, but at the height of her last frenzied months of training, might she be blind to the most terrible prognosis.

Intense, aloof Zoe has always hovered on the periphery of real human companionship, and her compulsive need to win at any cost has more than once threatened her friendship with Kate - and her own sanity. Will she allow her obsession, and the advantage she has over a harried, anguished mother, to sever the bond they have shared for more than a decade?

Echoing the adrenaline-fueled rush of a race around the Velodrome track, Gold is a triumph of superbly paced, heart-in-throat storytelling. With great humanity and glorious prose, Chris Cleave examines the values that lie at the heart of our most intimate relationships, and the choices we make when lives are at stake and everything is on the line.

My thoughts: When I was offered the chance to review the audio version of Gold, I jumped at it. I had read Little Bee a while back for my book club and really found that story to be quite compelling. With the Olympic Games starting today, I thought this book would be quite timely and I definitely wasn't disappointed. I even plan on watching the track cycling during the games - a sport I have never watched, but now am quite intrigued by.

Gold is the story of three top athletes, track cyclists who compete on the Olympic level, and what drives them. It isn't really a sports story per say, though you do learn a great deal about the grueling training that these athletes go through to be at the top of their sport. It's about team mates who are sometimes friends, sometimes not, with a complicated past and an even more complicated present. It's about parenthood, relationships, priorities and the sacrifices that are made for love and even for fear.

As the story unfolds we find out about Kate, Zoe and Jack's past bit by bit, a technique I happen to like. It's as if you are solving a puzzle, as the story progresses, more information comes to light to put the whole thing into perspective. I think, though, the star of the book might be Kate and Jack's daughter, Sophie, who is battling leukemia. Much like in Little Bee where the young boy is everything Batman, Sophie likens her fight with leukemia to being a Jedi Knight fighting the storm troopers.

I've now read two books by Chris Cleave and have not been disappointed. He seems to have a way of telling stories that really hooks the reader. Now I am anxious to pick up Incendiary and I will definitely be on the lookout for future releases by this author. 

Audio Thoughts: This is the first time I listened to anything narrated by Emilia Fox. I felt she did a great job giving each character their own identity and you could really feel the emotions that these characters felt. I will certainly be keeping an eye out for her other narrations.

I received a complimentary copy of Gold by Chris Cleave from Lauren at Simon & Schuster Audio.

Review: Forbidden Falls by Robyn Carr (e-book)

Forbidden Falls by Robyn Carr
Mira Books
December 2009
Format: e-book, 384 pages

First line: Recently ordained minister Noah Kincaid was surfing the Internet, killing time, when quite by chance, he happened to find a church being auctioned on eBay - in some little place he'd never heard of - Virgin River.

Synopsis from B&N:  Virgin River is abuzz with the news that a stranger bought the town's abandoned church on eBay. The buyer, a young widowed reverend, is a little like the building itself: in need of some loving care.

Noah Kincaid arrives ready to roll up his sleeves and revitalize his new purchase, but he's going to need some help. An ad in the local paper brings an improbable candidate his way.

"Pastor's assistant" is not a phrase that springs to mind when Noah meets brassy, beautiful Ellie Baldwin. With her colorful clothes and even more colorful past, Ellie needs a respectable job so she can regain custody of her children. Noah can't help but admire her spunk and determination, and she may just be the breath of fresh air he needs.

This unlikely duo may come from two different worlds, but they have more in common than anyone would have expected. And in Virgin River lasting happiness is never out of the question.

My thoughts: This is the ninth book in Robyn Carr's Virgin River series and once again I find that I love Virgin River and all the people who live there just a little bit more. As is usually the case with this series, characters we have come to love pop in and out of this story and we get brief updates on their lives. We even get a surprising update on the puppies from the novella, Under the Christmas Tree.

Forbidden Falls is primarily the story about Noah and Ellie. Noah has just bought the old, abandoned church in Virgin River and is desperately in need of an assistant. Ellie, a former stripper, is in desperate need of a respectable job in order to get her children back from an ex-husband. Both have their own troubled past, but sparks start flying and Noah does everything he can to help Ellie fight her ex-husband.  Both Noah and Ellie defy assumptions and stereotypes - he a widowed pastor and she an ex-stripper, but while they develop a friendship and a working relationship, they're both making new friends and allies in Virgin River and in the process, they're also helping those friends change their lives.

There is a secondary story that plays out involving a couple we've met earlier in the series. Paul and Vanessa have a heart-tugging change of events brought into their lives. As soon as they decide to finally try for a baby of their own, Paul's ex-girlfriend dies and names Paul guardian of her baby. The situation puts their marriage to a test as Vanni struggles with the job of being a mother of two and also accepting and loving this child as her own daughter. This story line in particular brought me to tears a few times.

As I mentioned above, each time I get to visit Virgin River, I fall a little more in love with the town and the people that live there. I love meeting new characters in each book as well as catching up with familiar ones and I can't wait to see who we meet in the next book, Angel's Peak.

Review: That Holiday Feeling by Debbie Macomber, Sherryl Woods, Robyn Carr (e-book)

That Holiday Feeling by Debbie Macomber, Sherryl Woods, Robyn Carr
Mira Books
October 2009
Format: e-book, 384 pages

First line:  "Dad, you don't understand."

Synopsis from B&N
 
Silver Bells by Debbie Macomber
In this classic story, Debbie brings those Manning men and Manning sisters home for a mistletoe marriage when a single dad finally says "I do."


The Perfect Holiday
by Sherryl Woods
Will bachelor Trace Franklin become a groom-to-be by Christmastime? He sure will …if Savannah Holiday's aunt Mae has anything to do with it.


Under the Christmas Tree
by Robyn Carr
When the folks of Virgin River discover a box of adorable puppies under the town's Christmas tree they call on local vet Nathaniel Jensen for help. But it's his budding romance with Annie McCarty that really has tongues—and tails—wagging!

My thoughts:  This was a sweet holiday book, containing three novellas by three of my favorite authors. I picked it up because it contained the eighth book of Robyn Carr's Virgin River series, and since I had to get the whole book in order to read that one, I ended up reading all three.

I read Debbie Macomber's Manning Sisters and Those Manning Men series quite a while ago, but they all came back as I read Silver Bells. This story focuses on Carrie Weston, the daughter of one of the Mannings. As a young girl, she set her mom up with the man she would end up marrying. Now, years later, she meets young Mackenzie and her father, and Mackenzie is all about getting her dad to find love again, and if he fell in love with Carrie, all the better!

In The Perfect Holiday, Savannah has just inherited her Great-Aunt Mae's old Inn and moves there with her daughter. No sooner do they arrive and try to get settled in, than Trace arrives for his visit that he had promised Mae he would make at Christmastime. It seems as if Great-Aunt Mae is working a little magic from the grave. Will her pushes wind up working out, leading to a little romance and perhaps a marriage?

Finally, in Under the Christmas Tree, a litter of puppies are found under the great big Christmas Tree in the center of Virgin River. No one knows where they have come from and it just so happens that as they are being discovered, Annie is right there. The puppies are extremely young and almost frozen to death. They need to be nursed back to health before they can be placed and while Annie wants to help, having a business to run, she cannot devote the time. She can, however, help out here and there, which comes as a relief to vet Nate. As the two get the puppies healthy, sparks start to fly. Will there be a new couple around Virgin River?

I enjoyed all three novellas. They are full of romance and are all light reads. Even though I read them in the middle of the summer, it's hard not to smile and share in the holiday spirit.

Book Spotlight: Caleb's Crossing (and Giveaway, too!) - GIVEAWAY CLOSED

Now available in paperback:



About the book: Caleb's Crossing is inspired by the life of Caleb Cheeshahteaumauk, the first Native American to graduate from Harvard College in 1665. Brooks first learned about him during her time as a Radcliffe fellow at Harvard in 2006. Caleb was from the Wampanoag tribe of Native Americans who lived on Martha’s Vineyard and this year Tiffany Smalley will become the second Vineyard Wampanoag to graduate from Harvard. There is little official information on Caleb’s life and Brooks’s novel is an informed imagining of what he might have gone through.
Bethia Mayfield is a restless and curious young woman growing up in Martha's vineyard in the 1660s amid a small band of pioneering English Puritans. At age twelve, she meets Caleb, the young son of a chieftain, and the two forge a secret bond that draws each into the alien world of the other. Bethia's father is a Calvinist minister who seeks to convert the native Wampanoag, and Caleb becomes a prize in the contest between old ways and new, eventually becoming the first Native American graduate of Harvard College. Inspired by a true story and narrated by the irresistible Bethia, Caleb’s Crossing brilliantly captures the triumphs and turmoil of two brave, openhearted spirits who risk everything in a search for knowledge at a time of superstition and ignorance.

Review: Return to Rose Cottage by Sherryl Woods

Return to Rose Cottage by Sherryl Woods
Mira Books
November 2010
Format: Paperback, 488 pages

First line: The headline said it all: Guilty Man Freed.

Synopsis from B&N: New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Sherryl Woods draws you into the world of Rose Cottage, where the D'Angelo sisters reunite with family and find lasting love.

The Laws of Attraction
High-powered attorney Ashley D'Angelo has finally burned out. After heeding the call of Rose Cottage, she believes she may have found the calm she so desperately needs and perhaps the chance at a happy ending with handsome Josh Madison. But if Josh isn't quite who he seems, is he still the man who can complete Ashley's joy?

For the Love of Pete
After hearing her sisters speak of the emotional healing to be found at Rose Cottage, Jo D'Angelo takes a chance and returns to the beautiful home. Only she knows the cottage is where she once loved and lost Pete Catlett. She's stunned to find Pete back there, as well, dealing with worries about his young son. Can the romantic wonder of the cottage reunite these two wounded souls?

My Thoughts: My love affair with Sherryl Woods' books continues...she seems to tell stories that grab you from the start and have you rooting for love to overcome all. Return to Rose Cottage contains the last two books of her Rose Cottage Sisters series and once again, I could find myself totally relating to the way to sisters rally around each other when one is hurting.

In the first story, The Laws of Attraction, we follow Ashley, the oldest D'Angelo sister, who has fled to Rose Cottage after defending and winning a case for a client who was indeed guilty. It all comes crashing down on her when the client almost murders another person. While at Rose Cottage, her sisters make her relax, taking away the work she brought down with her. She takes time to read some romance novels and concentrate on herself. When she literally runs into Josh Madison, she realizes that maybe there is room in her life for love. But what about the secrets that Josh is keeping from her? Will they get in the way or can Josh and Ashley find their way to happiness?

In the second story, For the Love of Pete, we follow Jo, the youngest D'Angelo sister. Jo has come down to Rose Cottage after finding her finance in bed with another woman. The only problem with being at Rose Cottage is that she doesn't want to see a certain man, her first love. None of her sisters know about this, but have noticed that on all her trips down to Rose Cottage, she was very reluctant to be out and about. On her first day at the cottage, she comes face-to-face with Pete Catlett - the very person she was hoping to avoid. He was sent there by one of the sisters to do some repair work, not knowing the history between Jo and Pete. Can these two find the love that was lost when fate intervened in the past, a fate that has had lasting repercussions? 

I thoroughly enjoyed these last two visits to Rose Cottage. It seems like a magical place where love overcomes all. Having a place to run away to when life gets to be too much is my place of heaven! Have you read this series? Have you read about a place that you wish you could visit, be it real or imagined?

It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (7.23.12)




It’s Monday What Are you Reading , hosted by Sheila, is the perfect way for me to begin my week and allows me to focus on what needs to be read and to see what I have or have not accomplished the previous week. I also enjoy discovering new books by visiting other participants blogs.

Some of you might have noticed that I was basically MIA last week - and it was totally unplanned. I somehow ended up hurting my back at some point Monday, so sitting at the computer didn't really help. I had had such grand plans of trying to catch up on some reviews before going away for the weekend, and as you will see below, didn't get to any of them. I didn't even get all that much reading done during the week as I had a hard time getting comfortable in one position and it was hard to read laying on my back on the floor with my legs up - plus the dog kept thinking it was time to play every time I did get on the floor.
Luckily it started feeling better towards the weekend and I didn't have to cancel my beach trip! We had such great weather and a blast playing on the beach with my nephew. I even dug up some of my beachy picture books to share with my nephew and they were a big hit!

Hopefully this week, I will have some time to get to those reviews!

It was a good week. I got some reading done, including finishing up 2 audio books and spent some time organizing my bookshelves. I also did some heavy-duty cleaning of my house - this heat is causing the dog to shed so much that there is hair everywhere! 

I'm heading to the beach next weekend and I cannot wait - my first beach trip of the summer! My sister-in-law has a beach house and I can't wait to spend time with her and my nephew and soak up the sun, listen to the waves and get some quality reading time in!
