Chicklit readers, now is the time to load up on some new audiobooks for your commute/gym/morning jog. Two new audiobooks are guaranteed to please:
Forever and a Day, by Jill Shalvis, is number 6 in the Lucky Harbor Series, which is very popular among the Nora Roberts-like line of contemporary romance. The books are easy and relaxing, and the guy always gets the girl-but not without some very endearing conflicts along the way. This particular novel circles around Grace, a woman who is trying to decide what she wants to do with her life when she falls into nanny-ing and dog sitting for the town’s most eligible bachelor, a handsome local Doctor named Josh. They made a deal that her position would be temporary, but things start to get complicated VERY quickly. Juicy love scenes included.
Meg Mitchell Moore’s The Arrivals is a more family-centered novel, focusing less on romantic love and more on the complex relationships that exist between parents and their children, ranging from young to old. When a retired couple finds their children all home at once, working through difficult life obstacles and some even bringing children of their own, they will learn that parenting never ends, and it doesn’t get any easier, either. This is a heartwarming novel that ends happily as the characters learn to be comfortable with themselves and their life decisions, with the love of family to back them up. If you are a parent, you will find this one especially touching and sweet.
So if you have been looking for a new audiobook, these are this reviewer’s top Chicklit choices for a summer listen-so grab them now and listen before fall rolls in, and I throw another one your way!
