Evelyn is breaking up with her boyfriend, as she’s seen their dismal future together at Dr Chin’s office: the life they may have when they are both many years older, singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to a Chihuahua and arguing about cheese. She hopes for more. Meanwhile Godfrey is proposing to his girlfriend, Madge - who’s not quite willing to take that leap. She wants to see their future together first...just to be sure they’re meant for one another. Then, one day, Evelyn and Godfrey meet. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Clark-Hill.

She wasn't looking for trouble - but it found her. Monica McDowney thought her life had hit a new low when she discovers her jerk-of-a-boyfriend failed to mention one tiny detail of his personal life - his marriage! You can't even trust a police detective these days. But that was before she stumbled upon a woman's obscenely mutilated corpse and the victim's heart-broken Chihuahua. Soon Monica finds herself crossing paths with serial killers - some insane, some coldly calculating - and their evil leader. Why does this madness keep happening? Can she trust the quiet but odd giant of a man named Bear? And why does her ex-boyfriend keep showing up?

Meet Julie Chavan. Julie is trying to rescue the legendary New York publishing house West 57. Everyone else in her life is trying to rescue Julie - her mother, her ex-fiancé, her ex-best friend, and even the ghost of her dead father. They all think they know what Julie needs. What Julie actually needs is a big best seller for West 57, but her debut of the year's hottest book is spinning wildly out of control. Julie is dealing with a dead con artist, an oversexed London agent, an irresistible young book editor, a drunk author spouting bawdy limericks, and a flying Chihuahua. The smart thing would be to say good-bye to West 57. Julie's Hollywood mother wants her in Los Angeles, and there's nothing keeping Julie in New York - nothing except her whole life. But before Julie can decide where she's going, she has to decide what she really wants. Exuberantly funny and emotionally rich, West 57 will make you laugh and cry about love, friendships, and the big choices in life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Meredith Mitchell.

When a mysterious text message summons May Wexler to a biker bar in downtown New Orleans, she knows something is very wrong. Her sister has sent out an SOS, but when May gets there, she's nowhere to be found and May is the one in trouble - she's wearing pink espadrilles, she's got a Chihuahua in her purse, and she's in the middle of a shootout. After tall, muscular Ozzie comes to her rescue, May has no choice but to follow him to safety. At the headquarters of his private security firm, the Bourbon Street Boys, she finds a refuge for the night - and the offer of a job. But it's not long before a gun-toting stalker isn't the only complication in May's life: the more time she spends with Ozzie, the less she can deny that they've got some serious chemistry. A wrong number got her into this mess...Will it also get her the right guy? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Emily Foster.

Ten million dollars to be divided equitably among the departed Grandfather Hunter's remaining family, with a proviso being, in proper legal terms, that the entire ten million dollars was to be held in trust for the exclusive use of Senorita Fogarty her lifetime, and for the lifetime of her pups (Senorita Fogarty being a Chihuahua of questionable breeding) and for the lifetime of her pup's pups, etc., etc. Only upon the death of Senorita Fogarty and her pups (if any) would the inheritance go to the family. 'Tis plain to see that the life of Senorita Fogarty wasn’t worth two cents, much less ten million dollars. But to the rescue! Our senorita is to be protected by the Crumps, Grandfather Hunter's trusted servants. And did we forget to mention that the erstwhile heirs are a rather bungling, ineffectual lot? Will Senorita Fogarty outwit the scheming Hunter family? Will the Hunters regain the birthright that is undeniably theirs (all ten million dollars' worth)? Will the Crumps . . . oh, forget it - just listen to the book! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Renee Raudman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/005062/bk_adbl_005062_sample.mp3.

Three decades after the first publication of Forrest Gump, Winston Groom returns to fiction with this sweeping American epic. Long fascinated with the Mexican Revolution and the vicious border wars of the early 20th century, Winston Groom brings to life a much-forgotten period of history in this sprawling saga of heroism, injustice, and love. An episodic novel set in six parts, El Paso pits the legendary Pancho Villa, a much-feared outlaw and revolutionary, against a thrill-seeking railroad tycoon known as the Colonel, whose fading fortune is tied up in a colossal ranch in Chihuahua, Mexico. But when Villa kidnaps the Colonel's grandchildren in the midst of a cattle drive and absconds into the Sierra Madre, the aging New England patriarch and his adopted son head to El Paso, hoping to find a group of cowboys brave enough to hunt the generalissimo down. Replete with gunfights, daring escapes, and an unforgettable bullfight, El Paso, with its textured blend of history and legend, becomes an indelible portrait of the American Southwest in the waning days of the frontier. 1.
