    In The Poisoner's Handbook, Blum draws from highly original research to track the fascinating, perilous days when a pair of forensic scientists began their trailblazing chemical detective work, fighting to end an era when untraceable poisons offered an easy path to the perfect crime.

    Reagan says: "Fascinating book marred by production errors"
    "The Poisoner's Handbook"
    Overall

    Intersting lay man's book. On the one hand, it inspires me to look up more on the topic ie wood alcohol, and other types of alcohol. I never thought of prohibition and alcohol as poison before. I knew of prohibition but did not realize the extent people would go for a buzz. It was a good start but left me wanting more information. More indepth. I think there should be a suggested reading list at the end of the book and/or I would like to see another book if there isn't one already by the author that goes into more detail or more on the subject. It doesn't have to be about New York (I love New York) but I want more! Ms Blum peaked my interest, more please.

    Laura Childs' New York Times best-selling Tea Shop and Scrapbooking mysteries have earned her a devoted readership. Set amidst the hustle and bustle of Mardi Gras, this much-anticipated 10th novel in the series follows scrapbooking maven Carmela Bertrand as she investigates the grisly death of TV reporter Kimber Breeze. It's not long before Carmela starts receiving spooky postcards - signed by Kimber herself - and realizes the case entails much more than she bargained for.

    Connie says: "Loved it!"
    "Fun Afternoon Listen"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Postcards from the Dead the most enjoyable?

    It was an entertaining book to listen to that didn't require me to follow the plot closely i.e. I could listen to the book on my I pod while running errands and cleaning house.I wouldn't have picked Laura Childs scrap booking series if I didn't like listening to the books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Didn't have a favorite character.


    What about Danielle Ferland’s performance did you like?

    She was the perfect person to read the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laura Childs needs to learn a few key curse words to replace her all encompassing word "poop" which doesn't qualify as a curse word in my opinion. That's what you say in front of a kid instead of a real curse word.First time I heard it used in one her books, that made me laugh.

    They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world---and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

    What made the experience of listening to Some Girls Bite the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was good and the story was a fun one. Very enjoyable. Not so intense that it was hard to follow as an audible book. It made my long run more enjoyable.

    The plot was fun, uncomplicated and interesting.


    What does Cynthia Holloway bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    You can't read and run at the same time.


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

    No particular moment moved me but I enjoyed the interaction of the characters. I want to know what happens to them.
