    Detective Michael Bennett arrests an infamous Mexican crime lord in a deadly chase that leaves Bennett's lifelong friend, Hughie McDonough, dead. From jail, the prisoner vows to rain epic violence down upon New York City - and to get revenge on Michael Bennett. To escape the chaos, Bennett takes his 10 kids and their beautiful nanny, Mary Catherine, on a much-needed vacation to his family's cabin near Newburgh, New York. But instead of the calm and happy town he remembers, they step into a nightmare.

    What did you love best about I, Michael Bennett?

    This was my first novel by the author so of course my first encounter with the character of Michael Bennett. The story got you right from the first chapter and carried you to the end. The main story and all the sub-stories just kept your interest going.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Favorite character was Michael Bennett just because he had so many interesting quirks to his personality. Can't wait to learn more in the next book!


    What about Bobby Cannavale and Jay Snyder ’s performance did you like?

    I usually am not a fan of dual readers but this really worked. You related to each character because the reader was so good.


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

    Absolutely. I listen to my audiobooks in the car because I drive a lot with my work and really would have liked to take the long route just to listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Try it ... You'll like it!

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating.

    Yup


    Did Becca Battoe do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The readers were fine


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fifty Shades of Grey?

    Seriously? I am no prude but this was just wierd.

  • Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Oprah's Book Club 2.0)

    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    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?

    What did you love best about Gone Girl?

    The best thing about the book was how it kept you guessing right to the end.


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

    I don't know if I really didn't like the ending or just didn't want it to end. It was crazy good.
