The Last Honest Woman - Nora Roberts Straightforward romantic fiction doesn't usually translate well to audio, but I picked up the O'Hurley series as a bundle at Audible, because I wanted something light and undemanding to listen to. This first book in the series fit perfectly. It was moderately entertaining, the characters somewhat interesting, and it kept my mind occupied through six or so hours of chores. Exactly what I wanted.
