    Lucas Davenport has had disturbing cases before - but never one quite like this, in the shocking new Prey work from the #1 New York Times best-selling author.

    Maura Smith-Mitsky says: "Get off Richard Ferrone's back!"
    "Great story, not so great listen"
    Overall

    I love the Prey series and have listened to almost all of them. I haven't heard Invisible Prey which maybe would have alerted me to this narrator. His narration is great, Lucas' voice is great but why would every woman in the story sound like a whiney dingbat? I think Sandford writes strong female characters and even our buddy, Dell, sounded like a whiney dope. I would recommend reading this one yourself. Great story as they always are, the narrator missed the boat.

    Maura Carmody's off on the trip of a lifetime. A talented chef, she's travelling around Ireland for a month to promote Australian food and wine. Maura's expecting a straight forward business trip. But what she gets is a whirlwind of mishaps, misunderstandings, rivals and revelations, and Dominic Hanrahan, who's giving her plenty of food for thought.

    Carol says: "Lacks substance"
    "Tasty"

    Wish I could have been on this wine tour! What a colorful book of descriptive travel and pleasant characters. Great reader. I would listen to a sequel!

    In the wealthy New York suburb of Hadley Farms, divorced mom Sara Turner is juggling a new fiance, a new TV career, and a Newcomer's Club that throws sex-toy parties. Her oldest friend, Kate Steele, is Manhattan's "Derm Darling", a successful Park Avenue skin doctor whose office is always packed with the city's creme de la thin...and whose bedroom is frequented by a real estate mogul who has his own plane, and his own very big problem.

    Tracy says: "Mine are spectacular"
    "This voice doesn't match the character"
    Overall

    I knew going in to this book that it would be about the shallow, designer label life of a 40 something New Yorker and I was perfectly ready for that. Unfortunately, this particluar reader doesn't inject the right personality into these characters. It could have been a light, funny, beach read had I grabbed the book instead. Interesting to read the reviews on Amazon to see the difference.

    Literary agent Jojo Harvey combines Jessica Rabbit's body with a mind like a steel trap. As if watching her back on the corporate ladder and making million-dollar deals wasn't difficult enough, Jojo's having a relationship with her married boss.

    Laurie says: "Listen a Little Longer.."
    "A favorite Audible purchase"
    Overall

    What a treat! This book was full of characters I would love to meet in real life and the story was intriguing because of a little mystery in the beginning. I laughed out loud, shed some tears, I will look for books by Keyes in the future and give a big round of applause to the narrator. Great work!

    Once there was a little girl from Fargo, North Dakota, named Maggie Goldfarb who grew up, moved to Manhattan, and morphed into Magnolia Gold, the highly paid editor in chief of Lady magazine. With a corner office, a designer wardrobe, and dozens of loyal employees, Magnolia has been hired to update the dowager of women's magazines. She's on her way to giving Lady a face-lift when she is ignominiously replaced.

    Daniel Vaughn Cauble says: "Don't buy it"
    "This is no Devil wears Prada"
    Overall

    Though the book was entertaining and funny, it was a very slow start and mostly, I think because of the choice of narrator. The voice didn't seem to fit the story to me. The desire to listen hit about halfway thru part 1 and then was pleasant to the end.
