That’s Entertainment! Enhance your Activities with an Audiobook.

In celebration of Audiobook Month, we’re highlighting all the ways that audiobooks make our lives better. From providing entertainment to enhancing our listening experience with soundtracks, audiobooks offer auditory thrills that simply cannot be enjoyed any other way.

For many of us, audiobooks are a great way to enjoy something fun or interesting while doing something that is neither of those things, like going to the gym or commuting. For others, it’s a great activity that helps us relax while on the beach, or just before going to bed.

Check out our amazing recommendations below for all the ways audiobooks can provide entertainment while you’re going about your day! Don’t forget to visit our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts, and use the hashtag #IListenFor to let us know why you love audiobooks. Lastly, don’t forget to enter our contest for a chance to win the ultimate audiobook lovers prize pack!

Patience Cavanaugh has lost hope in romance. The man she yearned to marry is dead and her dreams are gone with him. Now she is consumed with restoring a dilapidated boarding house in order to support herself.

Despite Patience’s desire for solitude, Jedediah Jones, the local marshal with a reputation for hanging criminals, becomes an ever-looming part of her life. It seems like such a simple arrangement: She needs someone with a strong back to help her fix up the boardinghouse. He needs a dependable source of food for himself and his prisoners. But as she gets to know this “hanging lawman,” Patience finds there is far more to him than meets the eye — and it could destroy their tenuous relationship forever.

With a keen eye for historical detail and a deft hand at romantic tension, Maggie Brendan invites you to a Montana gold rush boomtown, where vices and virtues are on full display and love is lying in wait.
