“Thank You for Listening” 
By Julia Whelan

Sewanee Chester is an audiobook narrator who started out in romance. After winning awards and gaining popularity, she has sworn off the genre simply because she no longer believes in the “happily-ever-after.” Now she is content to narrate Women’s Fiction from her sound booth at home where she can hide. But when her best friend invites her to stay with her in Las Vegas for the book convention, Sewanee accepts. What was to be a low-key work thing turns into one of the most interesting nights of her life when she meets a charming stranger named Nick. 

Settled with the knowledge that she will never see Nick again, Sewanee must juggle handling the care of her feisty, ailing grandmother and an offer to narrate a much-anticipated Romance series by the author who made her famous.  Even though she has left Romance, the money is just what she needs to pay for her grandmother’s medical bills. The only thing is, it’s a dual narration with the leading male voice in audiobooks – Brock McKnight. His real identity is the thing every woman wants to find out – except Sewanee.  But there is just something about him that draws her in with every text.  

“When in Rome” 
By: Sarah Adams

To her fans she’s known as Rae Rose. But, to a very few she’s just plain ‘ole Amelia Rose. And Amelia needs a break before her grand world tour. She channels her inner Audrey Hepburn from Roman Holiday and takes off to Rome. Well, not that Rome, but to Rome, Kentucky. Amelia just needs a calm before the storm. What she doesn’t realize is that she is in store for a whole lot more. She finds herself on the side of the road with no cell service and in Noah Walker’s front yard. Things start off a bit rocky between the two, but they naturally gravitate toward one another in many ways. Noah is a small-town boy who enjoys the quiet, simple life. Amelia is an international pop star. Can they make it work? If you need a fun, easy, clean rom-com, this Sarah Adams book is perfect. With any of her books, you’ll find yourself rooting for the couple and laughing all the way through. Stop by the library and check it out today!
