This is a story that will stay with me. Dani, Alice and Joy are friends planning a trip to New York before careers take them in different directions. Alice’s sister Paige is foisted upon them and Dani seems more affected than the others by this. When Paige disappears they are all distraught but Dani can’t stop looking and dedicates her life to finding her.
‘The Amnesia Project’ is a fantastic dystopian romance with a story that has so many layers. I never knew who to trust or where it was going to go. I learned not to make assumptions when reading this novel. Barbara Winkes surprised me again and again.The reason for Paige’s disappearance was shocking but worryingly not at all unbelievable. Once you’ve read it you will know why.

Dani was tenacious and her loyalty to Paige never wavered. She found herself in peril, threatened and warned off but never gave up. Paige had an underlying strength and maturity that shone through. I liked her approach from the start and was with Dani all the way as she tried to find answers to where Paige had gone and why.

I really liked T.J. Richards as the narrator. I have listened to other books read by her and find her delivery very engaging. She brings the story alive and I was glad to find she was narrating this book.

I was very impressed with this book and give it 5 Stars.

‘London Calling’ is a funny, romantic, sexy book and is perfect as an audio book. The London setting is so vividly written and the characters feel like people I know. Jess is one of those women for whom things are destined to go exactly the way she doesn’t want them to. Humour and mishaps are the order of the day for her as she tries to get on with her life after a painful break up. When she is blown away by gorgeous optician Lucy she tries so hard to make it work. Exes coming out of the woodwork threaten to scupper all that. I love the whole cast of characters as they add to the feeling of family - be they blood relations or great friends. The narration by Emily Bennett works really well. I can’t imagine anyone else capturing the tone of the book with such skill. Clare Lydon excels here and I’m desperate to listen to the next in the London series.

When her first love walks back into her life, Harriet Locke is thrown - because Sally McCall still looks as gorgeous as ever. The trouble is, Sally doesn't trust Harriet, and with good reason: she hasn't forgotten the past. Sally loved her once, but 17 years later, is that still the case? And if it is, there's just the small matter of living in different states, as well as convincing Sally she's worth taking a chance on again. Will Harriet and Sally be lucky enough to find love twice in a lifetime?

Sally and Harriet were teenage sweethearts but things did not end well for them. When they meet up unexpectedly in their 30s the old feelings are still there. Can they forget the past? Living in cities hundreds of miles apart with established businesses further complicates things. The romance is sweet and sexy, with some very hot scenes that will have you reaching for a fan to cool down! I wanted it all to work out for them as they were meant for each other. Sally had a hard time getting past the hurt from their past relationship and I could see why she was reluctant. Harriet was determined and persistent. Once again Clare Lydon has me grinning from ear to ear and feeling that all is right with the world. She has that rare gift of being able to draw the reader in from the start.   The writing is full of humour - it’s gentle but irreverent and Aunt Paula is hilarious. A wonderful story that left me happy - something I have come to expect from Clare Lydon’s books.

I enjoyed listening to the story come to life with the narration of TJ Richards. She hits just the right tone. I loved the story when I read the actual book a few months ago and this is a lovely addition. Being able to listen to a favourite story in the car or while out for a walk is one of life’s pleasures. And when you find the narrator’s voice fits the story then that makes it all the better.

Alexandra Dark lives a commitment-free life. In pursuit of lost treasure, she travels the world as an archaeologist, and it's her policy to never put down roots - and to never linger for long in any woman's bed. But when her sister convinces her to flip a rundown house in Niagara Falls, Alex finds herself caught in the middle of a mystery, and she's too curious to leave town before the case is solved. With sexy librarian - and amateur ghost hunter - Trudy Strange by her side, Alex attempts to unravel the clues hidden in the 100-year-old house.

Alex buys an old Victorian house in Niagara Falls for a dollar with a plan to remodel the interior and flip it quickly for a big profit. She doesn’t count on ghostly inhabitants and a mystery from over a century before. When she meets local librarian Trudy she has another reason for hanging around a bit longer.
I really enjoyed the mystery behind the old house and its ghosts and the various people Alex comes into contact in her quest to solve it. I especially liked Trudy. She was irreverent and hot and exactly what archaeologist Alex needed. Their interactions were very sexy but there was so much more. I liked Alex a lot too as she was caring and intelligent and her family relationships also gave an insight into her past.
I must mention narrator TJ Richards as I was very impressed by her. She has a natural style that made the story a pleasure to listen to. I’ll be looking out for more books narrated by her.

Nobody would ever describe Scarlet Williams as a ray of sunshine, but that doesn’t mean she deserves the flood that wipes out her basement flat, making her temporarily homeless. Enter Joy Hudson, local mayor & sunshine specialist, who opens her house to flood refugees and ends up with Scarlet on her doorstep. Two more opposing characters you couldn’t fail to meet, and yet, somehow, they strike up a friendship. But when the rain stops and the sun comes out, could that friendship blossom into something more?

When the town floods and Scarlett's flat is deluged by water she ends up homeless and in despair. Life hasn't been great for her for a while but this is the final straw. She ends up living in the house of the local mayor Joy, a closeted lesbian, while her home gets dried out. Their attraction is powerful and being together brings huge changes to both of their lives. Can they ever be more than friends? Will love win out?
Clare Lydon writes the most beautiful love stories, filled with humour, wit and romance. She is also the most skilled creator of the hottest sex scenes imaginable. One in particular is epic and hearing it read out in the sultry tones of Gabrielle Baker made it even better. This was a tale of hope and the realisation that sometimes what appears to be the worst day of your life might turn out to be the best. I adored this audio book and highly recommend it.

This collection of erotic tales is well written and slowly teased out. I especially enjoyed Study Break which hit exactly the right note and the second tale Seducing Older Women which is unbelievably delicious. Paris Rivera knows just how to to notch up the excitement and has mastered the art of the tease. I recommend this very effective audio book.

Kate is a rapidly rising star of the trauma therapy world - London based, shy, uptight, and with an air of aloofness that masks a deep sense of insecurity. When she has to relocate her "Traumatology for the 21st Century" conference to Horton Hill "Deluxe" Hotel and Conference Centre in the heart of industrial West Yorkshire, she is understandably horrified by the state of the place.

I loved the audio book of 'The Wrong Woman' by Jane Retzig. Shy and seemingly uptight Kate meets Naz while she is running a conference at a Yorkshire Hotel. They seem to be a very unlikely pair but find they are drawn to each other. When Kate's life start to go in a direction neither of them could have predicted Naz has to find a way to help.
The writing is so funny at times and the characterisation, even of the minor characters is inspired. The story itself is intriguing and I was hooked. I highly recommend it.

I was given the audio book by the author in return for an honest review.
