    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    What did you love best about The Witness?

    What a great book. The characters were well drawn, and I fell in love with Elizabeth, Abigail and Brooks. The plot held my interest. I loved the way Nora Roberts nailed the southern way of life and idioms.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I thought the plot was well thought out and it really held my interest. Of course I knew that Nora Roberts' books ended "happily ever after", but I didn't really expect several of the plot twists and the ending.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when Abigail told her story to Brooks. I think that the author and the narrator handled the characters emotions well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I really enjoyed the whole book.


    Any additional comments?

    Of all of Nora Roberts' recent books, this is my favorite.

    At 23, Ruth Saunders headed west with her 70-year-old grandma in tow, hoping to be hired as a television writer. Four years later, she's hit the jackpot when she gets The Call: the sitcom she wrote, The Next Big Thing, has gotten the green light, and Ruthie's going to be the show-runner. But her dreams of Hollywood happiness are threatened by demanding actors, number-crunching executives, an unrequited crush on a boss, and her grandmother's impending nuptials.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    The story was okay but not exceptional.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    The narrator spoke almost in a monotone, with little inflection. After a while it the narrator's voice reminded me of fingernails on a chalkboard.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    I'm struggling to finish listening to this narrator. I'll avoid books read by her in the future.

    From the New York Times best-selling author of A Heartbeat Away and The Last Surgeon comes a shocking new novel at the crossroads of politics and medicine. What if a well respected doctor inexplicably goes on a murderous rampage? When Dr. John Meacham goes on a shooting spree, his business partner, staff, and two patients are killed in the bloodbath. Then Meacham turns the gun on himself.

    Has Oath of Office turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I usually love Michael Palmer books but this was just . . . bizarre . . . and made no sense.


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    No problem with the narration but the story didn't make any sense.

    Would you listen to The Host again? Why?

    I loved this book. I didn't want to stop listening, yet at the same time I didn't want it to end. I love science fiction but was reluctant to read this book because I knew the author was famous for vampire books. I'm glad I overcame my reluctance because this book was so good. I highly recommend it.
