    During his years in a neural-health facility, Pat Peoples has formulated a theory about silver linings. He believes that his life is a movie produced by God, that his mission is to become physically fit and emotionally supportive, and that if he succeeds, his happy ending will be the return of his estranged wife, Nikki. When Pat goes to live with his parents, everything seems changed: no one will talk to him about Nikki, and his new therapist seems to be recommending adultery as a form of therapy.

    Story

    Unfortunately, I saw the movie first and really enjoyed it. I think the reader did as good a job as he could with this material. The character of Pat Peeples was just an idiot. He spoke and thought like an 8-year old. There is no way this man could have been a high school teacher before his "accident."

    Dr. Charlotte "Charlie" Stone has dedicated her career as a psychiatrist to exploring the darkest territory of all: the hearts and minds of serial killers. It’s a job she’s uniquely suited for, thanks to the secret talent that gives her an uncanny edge - Charlie can see dead people, whose tormented spirits cry out to her for the justice only she can provide. This blessing - or curse - gives Charlie the power to hunt down and catch madmen and murderers. It’s also turned her love life upside down by drawing her into a hopelessly passionate relationship with the lingering ghost of bad boy Michael Garland.

    Story

    I could not get very far into this book. The narrator, who I've enjoyed in other works, was awful! The story was weird and disjointed. I had to double check to see that I wasn't in part 2 instead of part 1. This was the second book in the series and it sounded good. But I don't have the patience to see if it's going to get even marginally better. I sent it back!

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won numerous awards for her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series, which has been adapted into the hit HBO show True Blood. In this 13th and final book, a murder rocks the town of Bon Temps and Sookie is arrested for the crime. After making bail, she sets out to clear her name - but her investigation only leads to more deaths.

    Story

    "See ya later, y'all." Charlaine Harris felt it was time to say bye to Sookie and the supes of Bon Temps. And in fact, this outing does provide closure. This story is tepid at best, but it's been a lot of fun over the years, so I'll give her a pass. As always, Johanna Parker does an outstanding job of narrating and inhabiting all the characters.

    A music therapist who thrives on helping others, Kendra Michaels cherishes the ordinary life she has achieved after stem cell surgery restored her sight. The skills she perfected during those sightless years - the ability to pick up the most subtle audio, olfactory, and tactile cues in the world around her - coupled with her laser-sharp mind - have made her a uniquely potent observer and problem solver. Kendra’s uncanny way of connecting the dots is as baffling to law enforcement as it is legendary.

    I really enjoyed the main character, Kendra. Her particular talents were really interesting and I can see more books to come about her. But the story seemed to wrap up its villains a little too neatly. The narrator was quite good.

    Although I think this story sounded a little familiar, it was enjoyable. But the narration was problematic. Mclarty too old for Sean King, Cassidy not quite right for MM. They are both good narrators, but not for this series. Bring back Scott Brick!

    Camp David, USA. A birthday party turns into a nightmare when a child is snatched after the celebrations. The First Lady enlists the services of Sean King and Michelle Maxwell to bring the child home safely. But she and King share a past. Years ago he saved her then senator husband from political disaster. And this may not be all that passed between them. With Michelle still battling her own demons, the two are pushed to the limit, with forces aligned on all sides against them.

    Story

    I like Maxwell and King a lot. But I really enjoyed Scott Brick's reading of these stories. Ron McLarty is talented, but he's too old to play Sean King and he doesn't change up his voices very well. The story was a little contrived, but I enjoyed it for the most part.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    This was an amazing story. I usually listen when I'm in the car, and I wanted to keep driving so I didn't have to stop. It is such a twisty, smart book.

    I love Scott Brick -- he is by far my favorite reader. So I'm not sure if it was his performance or the words on the page. But THE DRAMA!!!!! So ANGSTY!!!!! And the book was too long and often repeated itself.
