    Seven years ago, Sarah Mason's five-year-old daughter vanished during an outing at a park in Beaufort, South Carolina. Despite a frantic search, little Lexie was never found, and Sarah was left to pick up the pieces of her shattered life and go on the best she could. Then, one hot August night, Sarah comes home to hear the phone ringing. When she picks it up, a child's terrified voice whispers, "Mommy, help, come and get me . . ." The call is cut off, but not before Sarah's heart goes into overdrive.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I find myself wanting to get it over with...


    What was most disappointing about Karen Robards’s story?

    The main charachter Sarah with her emotions...I understand how she would be upset but it was just never ending back and forth. Too many details made the story really drag.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joyce Bean?

    Yes...she did horrible with the male voices...I agree with another listener when she said it sounded like a old woman who was a chain smoker instead of a sexy PI.


    Was Vanished: A Novel worth the listening time?

    It wasn't bad but I probably won't listen to it again.

    Lunacy was Nate Burke's last chance. As a Baltimore cop, he'd watched his partner die on the street - and the guilt still haunts him. With nowhere else to go, he accepts the job as chief of police in this tiny, remote Alaskan town. Aside from sorting out a run-in between a couple of motor vehicles and a moose, he finds his first few weeks on the job are relatively quiet. But that's about to change.

    "Enjoyable"

    Would you listen to Northern Lights again? Why?

    Yes...it is a good story and I like the characters. Nora Roberts really makes them come alive.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Northern Lights?

    Hmmm...I would say the mountian side rescue...very exciting and it really started the story moving from there.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I don't know...wasn't a huge fan of how he read the story. Once I got past the first few chapters it got better but in the beginning it was an adjustment.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes...

    He was known throughout the kingdom as Hawk, legendary predator of the battlefield and the boudoir. No woman could refuse his touch, but no woman ever stirred his heart - until a vengeful fairy tumbled Adrienne de Simone out of modern-day Seattle and into medieval Scotland.

    I like Phil Gigante...I just like how he reads...


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was fine...kind of knew the direction of the story


    What does Phil Gigante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Not sure what he brings but I just know that I enjoy how he brings the male characters to life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I wouldn't make a film of this book...sorry.
