Narrated by Mia Barron / 11 hours 6 minutes
“Welcome to the strikingly dysfunctional Plumb family: four siblings connected by little more than 'The Nest,' a joint trust fund that each has earmarked to support their unrealistic lifestyles. When Leo, the older brother and the center of the Plumb family universe, injures himself and a 19-year-old waitress in a scandalous car accident and endangers 'The Nest' just months before the funds are to be made available, the siblings come together for damage control. Sweeney artfully touches on each family member as they scramble to save the precarious lives they have built for themselves, bringing light and humor to her characters' various plights. Funny, thoughtful, and filled with unique and complex characters -- this book is a must-read.”Jennifer Oleinik, University Book Store
Only Killers and Thieves
By Paul Howarth
Narrated by David Linski / 11 hours 29 minutes
“An unforgettable first line propels this debut novel about two brothers on the Australian frontier who are drawn into a world of conflict and revenge that tests their beliefs and morals to the ultimate degree. The age-old conflict between settlers and indigenous people is played out on the southern continent much as it was in the American West and Russian East. As the brothers become deeply embroiled, they enter a savage and unforgiving landscape, both physically and culturally, and it becomes the ultimate test of their growth and humanity. This is a work that is as unrelenting as the world it describes and will long linger with the reader.”Bill Cusumano, Square Books

Murder on the Orient Express [Movie Tie-in]
A Hercule Poirot Mystery
Narrated by Kenneth Branagh / 6 hours 12 minutes
“Kenneth Branagh not only reprises his role of Hercule Poirot from his movie adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express, he also skillfully performs each of the characters featured in the book, bringing them and the story to life. It's like listening to a one-man play rather than just having someone narrate the book. Highly entertaining!”Stacey, Katy Budget Books

When You Read This
By Mary Adkins
Narrated by Sarah Naughton / 7 hours 34 minutes
“Death is called the final act, but for our loved ones who survive us, the show inevitably goes on. In When You Read This, Mary Adkins gives equal stage time to Iris Massey, a woman recently diagnosed with terminal cancer who begins a blog about her experiences, and those she has left behind. Grief is a unifying theme in this novel, from Iris, who struggles to come to terms with her death, to her sister, Jade, who is left rudderless without her, and even Iris’ boss, Smith, who is determined to fulfill Iris’ last request of having her blog published as a book. Poignant and bittersweet, When You Read This is a well-rounded blend of romance, comedy, and drama.”Heather Herbaugh, Mitzi's Books
Narrated by Robert Petkoff / 12 hours 19 minutes
“Snowden Wright has the Mississippi vernacular perfected. I've never read a book that so clearly captures the bizarre and beauty of my home state so clearly. The tale of the Forster family's rise and fall is a clever mix of historical facts and fiction. A book about a family dynasty, AMERICAN POP also explores the sense of entitlement and ridiculous propriety that was born and bred into white southerners.”Rachel, Avid Bookshop
Narrated by Paris Rosenthal / 4 minutes
“This is a short, sweet book about a parent's message to their son. I think it would be better as a picture book. However, as we all know, little ones fall in love with certain books, so this audio version will come in handy when there isn't easy access to the picture book.”Nicole, My Sister’s Books
Never Have I Ever
Narrated by Joshilyn Jackson / 12 hours 55 minutes
“Joshilyn Jackson is a masterful storyteller! I is a rare thing in my audio adventures, to find an author who can write AND narrate with equal ability, but Joshilyn Jackson is amazing on both fronts. Somewhere between a purring cat and a slythering snake, Joshilyn's silky voice pulls the reader so deep into this cat and mouse thriller as to almost be physically uncomfortable. This is the type of audio book that will find the listener missing an exit, staying up way too late, or completely losing track of what they were doing.”Mary, Anderson's Bookshop

Her approach to kindness, both within and without, is a gift to us all. A reminder of the best in ourselves and a nudge to see that best in others as well.”Genavieve, Books & Company

A Place for Us
Narrated by Deepti Gupta & Sunil Malhotra / 16 hours 38 minutes
If you enjoyed Mariam Sharma Hits the Road, then you’ll love A Place for Us.
“A Place For Us By Fatima Farheen Mirza is a truly powerful story about family relationships and how the strength of culture and religious beliefs can unite as well as tear families apart. Beautifully written from different family members’ perspectives, Mizra presents all the sides of the various stories that make up the formation of this unforgettable Indian Muslim family. Haunting and realistic. Likewise, Mariam Sharma Hits the Road by Sheba Karim wrestles with the choices the younger generation must make to reconcile the beliefs and desires of their parents with their own individual desires and personalities. Both both novels explore the growth of the individual and western choices in contrast to Muslim traditional beliefs. Both are thoughtful and provocative.”Phyllis, Wellesley Books

“This ambitious debut scared me so much that I began reading it in very small portions. In Dalcher’s version of the future, women have lost all of their rights and are limited (via electronic handcuffs) to speaking only 100 words per day. Their entire purview has been relegated to the home and family, where even girl children may not speak more than 100 words per day. Women cannot work, female representation in government has dropped precipitously over the years, and the bible belt has become a bible corset as men have reclaimed their masculinity through dominance of women in all areas. Even while we are currently consumed with the unthinkable changes in the current political environment .. this book reminds us to keep our eyes open and our voices heard.”Terry Gilman, Creating Conversations
