    Newly divorced Alison Kerby wants a second chance for herself and her nine-year-old daughter. She's returned to her hometown on the Jersey Shore to transform a Victorian fixer-upper into a charming-and profitable guest house. One small problem: the house is haunted, and the two ghosts insist Alison must find out who killed them.

    What made the experience of listening to Night of the Living Deed the most enjoyable?

    Ok so maybe the whole story line is slightly cheezy but it is very entertaining. The characters seem very real...even the spirits. I enjoy listening to books that are offbeat and entertaining and this qualified.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    Good narration, easy to listen to and each character was could be singled out.

    Caterer Goldy Bear's wedding day becomes a nightmare when her groom, homicide detective Tom Schulz, calls her from a murder scene and then vanishes. Her only clue to his disappearance is a cryptic note dropped at the scene of the crime. Its biblical references lead her to search for a Judas among her friends in the church congregation.

    If you could sum up The Last Suppers in three words, what would they be?

    Very good listen, really enjoyed the characters and story. Don't read expecting it to be realistic but fun.

    A house demolition provides an unpleasant surprise for Minneapolis - the bodies of two girls, wrapped in plastic. It looks like they've been there a long time. Lucas Davenport knows exactly how long.In 1985, Davenport was a young cop with a reputation for recklessness, and the girls' disappearance was a big deal. His bosses ultimately declared the case closed, but he never agreed with that. Now that he has a chance to investigate it all over again, one thing is becoming increasingly clear: It wasn't just the bodies that were buried. It was the truth.

    Stevon says: "good story"
    "Classic Davenport!"
    Overall

    I have read all the Davenport books and continue to enjoy them. Davenport and his group aren't really realistic as they operate outside any organized law enforcement group and don't really report to anyone but they provide a good story. Hope Sandford keeps writing and I will keep reading.

    Richard Coulter is a man who has everything. His beautiful new wife is pregnant, his upstart airline is undercutting the competition and moving from strength to strength, his diversification into the casino business in Macau has been successful, and his fabulous Art Deco house on an Irish cliff top has just been featured in Architectural Digest. But then, for some reason, his ex-wife Rachel doesn’t keep her side of the custody agreement and vanishes off the face of the earth with Richard’s two daughters. Richard hires Killian, a formidable ex-enforcer for the IRA, to track her down before Rachel, a recovering drug addict, harms herself or the girls.

    Story

    This was my first McKinty book and maybe I should have read an earlier one first. It took a quarter of the story for me to get use to the slow style and understand the characters. I ended up enjoying the book but had to go back several times to follow the characters. I will try another.

    Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum. Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list. Short on time to find evidence proving the killer’s identity, Stephanie faces further complications when her family and friends decide that it’s time for her to choose between her longtime off-again-on-again boyfriend and the other bad boy in her life....

    Story

    I love Janet Evanovich's characters and the story is secondary. People shouldn't complain about the story what do you expect this isn't meant to be serious. These are zany characters and they make me laugh out loud. Even when people are killed it's a light experience. There isn't much change in the books but they are entertaining.

    When Andie tries to gain closure with her ex-husband, he asks one final favor of her. A distant cousin has died and left North the guardian of two orphans. When Andie meets the two children, she realizes the situation is much worse than she feared. Carter and Alice aren’t your average delinquents, and the creepy old house where they live is being run by the worst housekeeper since Mrs. Danvers. Complicating matters is Andie’s fiancé’s suspicion that this is all a plan by North to get Andie back.

    Story

    Very entertaining. Was hesitant to order based on the description. Was pleasantly surprised when I finally began to listen to this book. It was enjoyable and the reader did a great job. The story and characters kept my attention and I looked forward to my drive to and from work so I could listen more. I always hesitate with ghost books but this was very good.

    Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients - or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.

    Roger says: "review of Abby Cooper series"
    "Psychic well sometimes"
    Overall

    Fun series that is entertaining. Sometimes tiresome when Abby does things even someone who isn't a psychic would know better. But still entertaining for a beach read!

    When Bailey Ruth Raeburn passed over into the great beyond, she was delighted to discover her sleuthing days would last an eternity.

However, on this latest mission, Bailey Ruth finds it more difficult than ever to keep up with her boss Wiggins' rules for good spirit deportment.

    Joy says: "Cute Mystery"

    I love this new series. Bailey Ruth is fun and imperfect! It is a great read that lifts your spirits even when there's murder. Carolyn Hart keep writing.

    In Tripwire, Reacher is settling into lazy Key West when his life is interrupted by a stranger who comes looking for him. When the stranger turns up beaten to death in the Old Town cemetery - fingertips removed - Reacher knows whomever the man was working for is not a friend.

    Mark says: "OK...but..."
    "Reacher, tough man at it again."
    Overall

    The world just won't leave Reacher alone. I like Lee Child's Reacher series but at times Reacher is to "me against a cold world". This book is good but Childs has put in too much torture and gore for my taste. It distracted from the story line and made it difficult to keep reading. I still like Reacher and the adventures just hope they don't stay as grusome.

  • Mystery: An Alex Delaware Novel

    Few know the city of Los Angeles the way #1 best-selling author and acclaimed suspense master Jonathan Kellerman does. His thrilling novels of psychological drama and criminal detection make the capital of dreams a living, breathing character in all its glamour and infamy. That storied history of fame, seduction, scandal, and murder looms large in Mystery, as Alex Delaware finds himself drawn into a twisting, shadowy whodunit that’s pure L.A. noir—and vintage Kellerman.

    Marion says: "As one narrator to another"
    "Kellerman doing what Kellerman does!"
    Overall

    If you love Kellerman's Alex Delaware books you will love this one as well. It is well written and enjoyable. You can read Kellerman's book out of order and enjoy them but I prefer to read them in the order they were written.
