Anatomy of a Miracle

A Novel*

By Jonathan Miles
Narrated by: Edoardo Ballerini
Length: 13 hours 55 minutes

Anatomy of a Miracle

“A priest, a doctor, and a reality TV producer walk into a convenience store... Actually, the notable walker in this story is Cameron Harris, a paralyzed soldier who inexplicably rises from his wheelchair and starts walking in the Biz-E-Bee parking lot. Anatomy of a Miracle follows Harris and the aforementioned sundry characters in the aftermath and dissection of this reported 'miracle.' Was it science? Was it divine? Was it a hoax? Will it make for a hit TV show? Jonathan Miles' charming - and often humorous - novel explores the varying perspectives on faith, truth, and the unexpected consequences of the miraculous.”

After years of semi-hermithood, a near-death experience prompts her to make a list of things she’d like to do in order to “get a life.” As fate would have it, the apartment building she soon moves into contains a devilishly handsome superintendent. With a beautiful and long overdue representation of fibro and plenty of glorious, woman-focused sex, this audiobook is absolute bliss.”

The Bride Test

By Helen Hoang
Narrated by: Emily Woo Zeller
Length: 10 hours

The Bride Test

“This follow-up to The Kiss Quotient is an incredibly diverse and fun story about Khai, Michael’s cousin from the previous novel. He is Vietnamese-American, autistic, and believes himself to be incapable of the emotions that matter. I would recommend this to those who enjoyed The Rosie Effect and Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine. Hoang is making important waves, one sweet, sexy romance novel at a time.”

The Kiss Quotient

A Novel

By Helen Hoang
Narrated by: Carly Robins
Length: 9 hours 36 minutes

The Kiss Quotient

“I am going to cry. Happy tears. I don’t think I’ve ever related to a character in romance quite so much as I do to Stella. And that is important. Helen gives voice to those who have been counted out of the romance genre for so long, and in such a way that is relatable, informative, and swoon-worthy. I also really enjoyed the premise of flipping Pretty Woman on its head. I'll always take a fake dating trope, but something about this treatment really did it for me. I devoured it. Tropy in all the best ways, and real in all the rest, I truly hope The Kiss Quotient continues to gain readership and notoriety over years to come.”

Highfire

A Novel

By Eoin Colfer
Narrated by: Johnny Heller
Length: 9 hours 19 minutes

Highfire

“Let me just say that I think this novel is best enjoyed as an audiobook. The narrator, Johnny Heller, carried this laugh-out-loud "high crime" fantasy story right out of the Louisiana swamp into my car over several commutes. Colfer reminded me why I fell in love with Artemis Fowl all those years ago — his humor is spot-on and his heroes are unexpected. I don't know the last time a book made me laugh SO hard.”
