    Max Parkman - autistic and whip-smart, emotionally fragile and aggressive - is perfect in his mother's eyes. Until he's accused of murder. Attorney Danielle Parkman knows her teenage son Max's behavior has been getting worse - using drugs and lashing out. But she can't accept the diagnosis she receives at a top-notch adolescent psychiatric facility that her son is deeply disturbed. Dangerous. Until she finds Max, unconscious and bloodied, beside a patient who has been brutally stabbed to death.

    Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes - very intense


    What other book might you compare NOS4A2 to and why?

    "IT"


    What about Kate Mulgrew’s performance did you like?

    There are not enough words to write on Kate's performance. She did such an amazing job with ALL characters. She brought the characters to life including the flaws. I mean WOW!!


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

    I think this book is just too complex for the screen.

    Would you listen to The Trial of Fallen Angels again? Why?

    I will listen to this book again and probably again. The twists and turns of an neverending plot captured me and kept me intrigued throughout the entire book. Therese Plummer, once again, performs at her best.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cutter's grandmother. She is true to nature the image of every grandmother. Continually nurturing and talking most gently in words of love.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Best scene - ALL were heart wrenching


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

    Yes - I did listen to this book without interruption; well except to shower.


    Any additional comments?

    This book had so many characters and situations; so much drama and suspense. Therese Plummer did an outstanding narration and brought all the characters to life in true colors; male, female, child and those of age, so many different accents and foreign languages. Ms. Plummer is top notch in her field.

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    If you could sum up Reflected in You in three words, what would they be?

    Better than Best


    What other book might you compare Reflected in You to and why?

    This book is a tone down from 50 Shades which brings more to a real relationship for me. More intimacy and torment between pasts. Much better book than 50 Shades. This series should be in production


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

    Redfield brings so much emotion to words and brings the story to life.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    What made the experience of listening to Bared to You the most enjoyable?

    Hope there is a sequel. Love this book - so intense. Would love for Gideon to take care of Ava's step brother or at least find out if he ever tracked him down, oh and let's not forget about Michael - his day is coming too. Please please let there be a sequel.


    What about Jill Redfield’s performance did you like?

    Great - I would really like to know how she made it through this book. I had to exhale quite a few times!! Nice job.
