At last Don't Call Me Hero is finally on Audible. I really hope that the 2 further booksvin this will also be put on Audible.

At first I couldn't get on with the narrator but I listened to the book all night.

I loved all the characters especially Cassidy, ex-marine, and Julia, District Attorney. Both run in different circles but one thing brings them both together. No spoilers.

Having lived through 7/7 it was so nice to find such a frank and inspirational book written by Martine and narrated by Zara Rann. Taken from the initial event to the present day and the way it had effected her and her family and friends.

I have seen so many books written about 9/11 and I am truly saddened with what happened in America but I am so pleased that Martina was brave enough to tell us her story instead of using the British stiff upper lip and wishing the event would have not happened.

When I heard from that A E Radley was releasing a Christmas story I had to get it. What made it even better was the narrator who brought the characters to life and she was very good with the accents.

I loved the way Hugo had encouraged Emilia to get in touch with Amber about the Lund Fairy Tales. Also the ups and downs of the main characters.

The way that the author shows you around this small village in Sweden and the country's christmas customs make you feel as though you are there.

This is a lovely story that shows that if you stick to your principals you can get what you want

When you wait for a Cari Hunter book it is like waiting for a bus then the book and Audible come out together. If you have read the book that is brilliant but the spoken word is even better.

I love the 2 main characters, Rosie and Jem, the way they bounce off each other and learn how to get through their baggage. With Carri's books you get a hard hitting story interspersed with northern humour and lots of food.

Warning after reading this book you may need your waterproofs and wellies.

Rosalind Pike gave a very refreshing performance of this well loved story.

The only time I struggled was when I heard Mrs Bennett speak for the first time.

My best part was Eluzsbeth's reaction to Mr Darsy's proposal the first time.

Lise is one of those author's who can put the reader in the characters situation. It is Ella Temperley, a famous Hollywood actress, birthday. Having lost her twin she has decided to end it all by walking into the sea.

Cam Saunders, a Yoga instructor, watching this from her patio doors had other ideas. This is a touching story showing how 2 people who work in total circles can help each other with their problems. This is a slow burn romance but during the process we see how each character desks with their loss and how the outcome would impact on friends and relations.

This is a must read book that shows that if you do feel lonely and feel as though no one cares that you should talk to someone and seek help.

This is the second in the Soul Mates series. This book follows Sawyer James, Police officer, and Sage Carson, Social Worker.

I have read this book many times and Emily Beresford brings all the characters to life.

Don't worry Zane and Jaina are there as well.

Thsnk you Andy for giving us a real eye view of a paramedic. Using medical terms but taking the time to explain the various slang terms so that the layman can understand.

The author must have taken a long time to look into this subject of amnesia. The subject has been given the respect it deserves.

Holly and Victoria maybe poles apart but the only thing that can bring them together is trust love and a family who truly love both women.

This was well worth the listen and I will be listening to more of AE Radley's books.

I was very pleased to have won this book and even more that it was a laugh a minute

What really made this book even more memorable was the narrator Wendy Wolfson. With her different accents and inflections this is a plea that Emma will keep her for the next 2 books.

This is a lovely story between Catherine (Kit) Sorrel and Laura Howard and a cast of interfering islanders. Just think of Last if the Summer Wine meets The good Life. A real read for Summer.
