    Thriller scribe Sophie Katz is as hard-boiled as a woman who drinks Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccionos can be. So Sophie knows it's not paranoia, or post-divorce, living-alone-again jitters, when she becomes convinced that a crazed reader is sneaking into her apartment to reenact scenes from her books. The police, however, can't tell a good plot from an unmarked grave.

    Sorry this one was not great- the story was good but it took many turns that destroyed the interest of what is going to happen next. I could not say read it.

    Would you try another book from E L James and/or Becca Battoe?

    On my first evaluation I said yes, but as I continued the series I really would have to say
    I would evaluate their books alittle closer than I did this one


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

    Do I want to read part three and yes -I did.


    What three words best describe Becca Battoe???s performance?

    She was good.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I do not know, but if it is like this book it should be rated R.


    Any additional comments?

    The actual story became losted in the second part and was more into sexual content of a couple's sexual life rather than a story of their lives. I am not into spanking and inflicting pain during sexual activity so this was not the great book I expected.

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

Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Would you try another book from E L James and/or Becca Battoe?

    I must admit I listen to all of the book but when she decided to leave I was relieved. I was so afraid she would stay-so many women do and they think this person will change. Yes,I would try another book - this book or books were well written but when you have personally worked with women this has happen to for years - you want to shake them and say this behavior rarely changes. It leaves them shaddered thinking that somehow it is still their fault. There is a thin line between love and hate and when hateful things are done by lover it makes the line even thinner.


    What could E L James have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This book was very well written about a subject matter that is hard to write about without showing the person as a disturbed individual as he is in this area.


    What didn???t you like about Becca Battoe???s performance?

    Of course you wanted her to be more physically agressive to him but this was not the story.


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

    none


    Any additional comments?

    A good book - well written - somewhere there could have been some mention of him seeking help and also help for her.

Now, in Buried Secrets, Nick Heller returns, finding himself in the middle of a life-or-death situation that’s both high-profile and intensely personal.

    Devastated by the discovery that his wife, Helen, was murdered, Special Agent Pendergast must have retribution. But revenge is not simple. As he stalks his wife's betrayers-a chase that takes him from the wild moors of Scotland to the bustling streets of New York City and the darkest bayous of Louisiana - he is also forced to dig further into Helen's past. And he is stunned to learn that Helen may have been a collaborator in her own murder.

    This book is well written and has a very good plot but the ending is so terrible. It leaves you where you were at the beginning of the book and the character they were looking for dead. It is good reading but be prepared for an ending of " really"!!!! I would not recommend it for that reason.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....
