Love books! Classics and lighter fiction, mysteries (not too violent please :-). And selective non-fiction--whatever takes my fancy.

    I know (and love) David Rosenfelt's work from his wonderful Andy Carpenter series. This is my first time listening to something else he has written. And this book did not disappoint in any way. On the contrary, if possible, I even liked it better!

    The premise of this one could so easily have been mishandled by someone with less skill and talent, But Rosenfelt makes it very credible. After a hurricane in Maine, a town decides to open a time capsule which should not have been opened till way into the future, fearing the water damage present might have affected it's contents. And what they discover turns the town on it's head. Instead of usual local items of historical interest and predictions, there is a corpse and a different set of predictions that could only have been written by someone planning future crimes. They give proof that a murder for which they thought they had convicted the right person several years ago, could not have been committed by him. Unfortunately, the man convicted was killed in prison, so cannot help them now.

    It falls to chief Jake Robbins to try to stop what he fears will be more murders now that he has this fresh evidence, but as he races against the clock, he finds himself becoming one of the main suspects.

    Excellent writing. Excellent narration (though Steitzer had a tiny bit of difficulty with some women's voices). The plot flows well and quickly, the characters are well-drawn, and the tension is present in a way that kept me drawn in from start to finish! Can't wait to go back and read another of Mr. Rosenfelt's non-series books. If they all are as a good as this one, I'm sure they will be wonderful!

It’s a small town and memories are long, and Katie and Jenny’s husband, Chief of Police Jake Robbins, have had to work at putting the tragedy behind them. But it's all brought up again in the wake of a hurricane which has just wreaked havoc on their quiet Maine town.

    I really enjoy the Max Tudor mysteries, and this one did not disappoint in any way. The characters are well developed, and the mystery is fun to try to solve as the story progresses. This series has so far utilized Autumn and Winter--and presumably the next one will be summer. I wonder where GM Malliet will go after that? I pray there will be more Max Tudor books for a long time to come (note to author--you could go for the months, the days, the zodiac signs, --anything--just keep on writing :-) The narration is excellent! A great read!

    Vicar Max Tudor, reveling in his new-found personal happiness with Awena Owen, feels that life at the moment holds no greater challenge than writing his Easter sermon. With Awena away, he looks forward to a dinner that includes newcomers to the village like West End dramatist Thaddeus Bottle and his downtrodden wife Melinda. But when one of the dinner guests is found dead in the pre-dawn hours, Max knows a poisonous atmosphere has once again enveloped his perfect village of Nether Monkslip.

    Story

    This is a delightful series--entertaining characters, perfectly paced, colorful settings & escapades, amusing romantic romps, and oh yes--always a mystery to solve as well. Stephanie Daniel reads these books so well--and along with the peppy accompanying 20's style music--they make the perfect complement to the writing. (In fact, after listening to the first three books in the series, I doubt reading one would be as good!)

    In this book, Phryne is riding with Dot, her companion, on a train--when the entire car is sedated by chloroform being sent through the ventilation system. Phryne practically single-handedly rescues most of the people herself (no surprise, if you know Phryne from past books), and immediately is immersed in the crime (murder of one of the passengers). This leads to all sorts of complications as side issues--including the introduction of two girls whom I presume we will see in future books. (Don't know, since I'm listening to them in order). Agatha Christie would have loved this book, with it's modern style of writing about a crime on a train--taking place in her era :-)

    There is everything to love about this series and this book. The only reason I gave the story 4 stars instead of 5 this time was because it was WAY to easy to finger the culprit early on. However, even if the culprit had been named in the first paragraph, this book would still be a super read/listen. It has a kind of charm to it that simply captivates my imagination. Highly recommend!

What was planned as a restful country sojourn turns into the stuff of nightmares: a young girl who can't remember anything, rumours of vile white slavery and the body of an old woman missing her emerald rings.

  • Ballistic: A Gray Man Novel

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Mark Greaney wrote a fast paced action packed story. Court Gentry seemed to go from one impossible to escape situation to another. It was exciting to listen to how he got out of each situation. Greaney description of modern day Mexico may be very accurate from other books I have read. Mexico appears to be reaping the harvest of centuries of corruption. The Gray mans travels through Latin America, Central America and Mexico was like an exciting travel guide. Jay Snyder did a good job reading the story. This book makes an nail biting escape from today's problems, story good for a boring commute.

  • Until Proven Guilty: J. P. Beaumont Series, Book 1

    "Until proven guilty"

    Overall

    This is book one in the Beaumont series. I have read some of the newer books in the series, so it was great to read the first book. It answers a number of questions about people that were briefly mention in passing in the new books such as Ann, and how Beaumont got his money. This book had more sex than the usual Jance novel I am glad she toned that down in the newer books. Liked the description of Seattle it like a mini trip to the city. Over all enjoyed the book now I will look for number two in the series.

    Story

    Over the years I have read almost all of the Griffin books. He is one of my favorite military authors. I see now that all the books are being released on audiobooks. I decided to take the opportunity to read/listen to the books I had missed reading in the past. This book was on my list. W.E.B. Griffin takes a real situation based on history and inserts his fictional characters right along side the real historical people thus making the story very real. Eric G. Dove did a great job narrating the story. It is the first time I have heard him narrate. Most of Griffins books prior to this series were based on WWII stories. This series moves into the cold war period with Che Guevara the Cuban communist activist. Lots of flying and action in the story. Some foul language but no explicit sex as per Griffins usual method of writing. If you are a fan of military novels or a history buff you will enjoy this story. Griffin also is precise in following military protocols in this story including the famous military top secret memo format. In this book he sums up the ending of the story via after action reports and memos to Felter.

  • Against All Enemies

    Story

    Steven Weber did a good job narrating this book. I don't think this book was as good as the early Tom Clancy books. This book had his usual multiple plots going and coming together at the end of the book but just lacked something that was in the earlier books. I like the detail and found the airport security problems interesting as well as the action in Pakistan. I almost feel that Tom Clancy is just sitting back on his laurel and hiring some else to do the hard work of writing.

  • "Obsession, mystery, and you're hooked!"

    You’re at a wedding, except it's the wedding of the love of your life to someone else. Coben spins obsession and suspense early in the fantastic new novel: Six Years. I had this novel on my pre-order list for a while and thanks to travel I was able to listen to the whole thing in almost one continuous stream. The story unfolds in layers and the character development is excellent and starts from the first sentence. You can’t help but see the flaws in Jake Fisher. Coben sets you up, gives you clues, offers false starts and little hints that keep you on the edge and wondering and speculating.

    The novel is performed by Stott Brick. He is one of my favorites! Of my favorite performances is his narration of the Pendergast series by Preston and Child. He does exceptionally well within this genre and he doesn't disappoint.

    This novel is going to please anyone who likes a good solid "search for the truth". There is no technology in this mystery, but you won’t miss it. I wouldn’t recommend it for the teen to young adult crowd, it’s not the subject matter, the story line won’t likely appeal. I give this a solid must listen, at 10 hours, it will hold you interest and then some.

    Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd. But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie....

    On a fateful summer morning in 1986, two 11-year-old girls meet for the first time. By the end of the day, they will both be charged with murder. Twenty-five years later, journalist Kirsty Lindsay is reporting on a series of sickening attacks on young female tourists in a seaside vacation town when her investigation leads her to interview carnival cleaner Amber Gordon. For Kirsty and Amber, it's the first time they've seen each other since that dark day so many years ago. Now with new, vastly different lives - and unknowing families to protect - will they really be able to keep their wicked secret hidden?
