    Clare's grown very fond of Alfred Glockner, the part-time comic and genuinely jolly charity Santa who's been using her coffeehouse as a place to warm his mittens. When she finds him gunned down in a nearby alley, a few subtle clues convince her that Alfred's death was something more than the tragic result of a random mugging, despite the conclusions of the police. Between baking delicious Christmas goodies and fending off the attentions of a persistent professional elf, Clare sets out to solve St. Nick's murder.

    I just couldn't get into this audiobook, despite having high hopes for it. The writing is bland and lacks energy. The narration is lifeless. I don't think I will attempt another book by this author.

    The body of 92-two-year-old Jossi Goldberg, Holocaust survivor and American citizen, is found shot to death execution style in his house near Frankfurt. A five-digit number is scrawled in blood at the murder scene. The autopsy reveals an old and unsuccessfully covered tattoo on the corpse's arm - a blood type marker once used by Hitler's SS. Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein are faced with a riddle. Was the old man not Jewish after all? Who was he, really?

    Story

    When 92-year old Holocaust survivor Jossi Goldberg is found executed in his home, Detectives Kirchhoff and Bodenstein are given the case. When they are being pressured into letting the case go - but not before they have a chance to order an autopsy - the detectives become intrigued. During the autopsy a strange tattoo is found on Goldberg, the type that was given to SS soldiers, it doesn't seem possible this Holocaust survivor was an SS soldier. Within days, two similar murders are committed. The one common thread between all the murders is all of them were lifelong friends with Vera von Kaltensee, baroness, well-respected philanthropist, and head of an old, rich family. The detectives find themselves being drawn into a murder mystery where no one is who they claim to be.

    This was a great story and great narration. I highly recommend!

    Pirriwee Public's annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder. In this thought-provoking novel, number-one New York Times best-selling author Liane Moriarty deftly explores the reality of parenting and playground politics, ex-husbands and ex-wives, and fractured families.

    Story

    When single-mother, Jane, moves to town with her kindergarten aged son, she is befriended by Madeline and Celeste.

    Madeline is outspoken, not only in her demeanor but also in her dress. Her youngest daughter is also in kindergarten, along with Celeste's twin boys.

    Celeste, the beauty of the group, is the envy of many with her beautiful sons, successful husband and leisurely lifestyle.

    Jane is quite ordinary; soft-spoken, and introverted, she prefers not to draw attention to herself.

    The story begins on school trivia night when a horrible accident occurs - or was it an accident? - until the lies and deceptions these three misfit friends are keeping come to an explosive head.

    What an excellent story! It keeps you guessing, right up the end.

Little does he know the unforeseen and terrible consequences of the deed, which is soon forgotten amidst the riot of boyhood games. By the time he is grown, with a wife and children of his own, William seems to be a man blessed by fortune - until tragedy strikes and the stranger in black comes.

    Bailey Ruth loves to return to earth as an emissary from Heaven's Department of Good Intentions. Problem is, she's a bit of a loose cannon as far as ghosts go - forgetting to remain invisible, alarming earthly creatures - so she's far from the top of department head Wiggins's go-to list for assignments.

    Dearly departed Bailey Ruth is back in Adelaide, her hometown, for another emissary assignment - but the details aren't quite clear. Normally Wiggins, the head of the Department of Good Intentions, gives Bailey Ruth detailed instructions but this time, she didn't even see Wiggins before her departure. She soon learns who she is there to protect and as usual, Bailey Ruth isn't very adept at keeping the precepts, especially the one on not appearing unless it is absolutely necessary. So when Bailey Ruth tries to disappear and finds she can't, she knows that she is stuck on earth and Wiggins has no idea she is there.
