Swept Away by Robyn Carr - Audio version

Swept Away
by Robyn Carr
Audio version
 

Again, Robyn Carr. Fabulous author. I cannot even
imagine where all these characters, names, places &
storylines live in her head.
The heroine is Jennifer Chaise. She grew up with a very
unpredictable mother. Hand to mouth most of the time.
No place or anyone to count on. Jennifer took care of
her mother. As a grown up, she was determined that
she would not live like that ever again.
 

Swept Away is her story. It's how she made her way.
So she would never again be without or hungry or afraid.
Something Jennifer did not count on. The loneliness.
Feeling alone. Having no one else in the world to 
depend on. 
Perhaps most of us take it for granted. Having family,
friends, community, church, school, etc. To be
surrounded by people that we build relationships with.
It's a wonderful love story and you will be cheering
for Jennifer. When the story starts, you will be surprised
at that. But I promise you will.
Make time for this one. And if you are an audible story
fan, you are in luck. The narrator in this story is
Therese Plummer. She is a very popular story teller.
Because she does a great job.
 
This story was originally published as
Runaway Mistress.
I bought my copy of Swept Away from Aubible.com

The Wedding Party by Robyn Carr

The Wedding Party
by Robyn Carr

This is one of those books that has a number of
storylines all running simultaneously. Whenever I am
reading this kind of story, I usually find myself feeling
like I will never be able to keep it all straight. Every time
a new character, couple, situation, etc is introduced,
I worry that I will lose track of them. I often keep notes
on everyone as I go.
But then, it isn't long before the peoples faces start
forming in my head. The houses, towns, seasons, styles.....
They start coming alive in my head as I read. I no longer
need the notes. And then, all the relationships start making
sense. Slowly coming together.

When I first start these stories, I can't put the book
down because I might forget who that person is or where
they are or what's going on with this one or that one.
But once I begin seeing the connections, I can't put the
book down because I have to find out what happens
next and then next and next.....
Nobody does these stories better than Robyn Carr.
I can't begin to imagine where she gets all  these
 stories, characters, names, places......
The Wedding Party is a wonderful story. I can't even
think of listing the characters and storylines.
But I can assure you, it's a wonderful read.
Not one single perfect character. No one that you
will feel is getting the short end of the stick.
If you enjoy interesting characters and rooting
for love, you will love this one.
I bought my copy of The Wedding Party
from Amazon.
