    When Dr. Mike Scanlon is called to serve as an army doctor in Afghanistan, he’s acutely aware of the dangers he’ll face and the hardships it will bring his wife, Chloe, and their newborn baby. And deep inside, he doesn’t think of himself as a hero, but a healer. However, in an ironic turn of events, as Mike operates on a wounded soldier in a war-torn country, Chloe dies at home in the suburbs, in an apparently freak household accident. Devastated, he returns home to bury her, only to discover that the life he left behind has fallen apart.

    What did you love best about Don't Go?

    Don't Go was not the story I expected. Scottoline kept me on the edge of my seat through most of the story. Usually it takes me several days to a wk to listen to a mystery; but this novel I could not put down.
    A father's love for his wife and his daughter, then disappointment - I felt like crying many times during the story.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot seemed to change many times, you don't know what Isaac will have to endure next.


    Have you listened to any of Jeremy Davidson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    don't remember readers


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

    Story

    Detective Alex Cross is a family man at heart--nothing matters more to him than his children, his grandmother, and his wife Bree. His love of his family is his anchor, and gives him the strength to confront evil in his work. One man knows this deeply, and uses Alex's strength as a weapon against him in the most unsettling and unexpected novel of James Patterson's career.

    Would you listen to Cross My Heart again? Why?

    Absolutely, this story has many twists that kept me listening all day!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Patterson makes Cross come alive. Not just a character, but a man with feelings - I empathized with Alex; felt his sincere anguish! Forgot this was just a story.

    Love Nana Mama who can treat the big man, Alex, like a child and get away with it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Gut wrenching scene when Alex realized his family is gone.


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks, James Patterson, I can't wait for the next book!!!

    Molly Murphy's beau Captain Daniel Sullivan may be out of jail on bail, but he's still a ways from clearing his name, and his foul mood has Molly in search of a little breathing room when providence steps in in the form of a proposition from New York City's renowned theatrical impresario Tommy Burke. America has been very good to Tommy, and now that he's getting on in years, he'd like to pass some of that good fortune on to his family back in Ireland.

    What made the experience of listening to Bless the Bride the most enjoyable?

    Molly gets herself into the most intriguing situations, but seems to come out unscathed. Really love Nicola Barber's Irish accent; it adds something special to the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The relationship between Molly and her friends - Syd & Gus is precious. They were truly best friends to Molly frequently supporting her with encouragement and good food.


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

    It was hard to stop listening, my life kept getting in the way. This is a book that can be listened to in one sitting (if you have the time) because it's hard to find a stopping point.


    Any additional comments?

    For some reason, I've gotten this series out of order, but it doesn't really matter to me because I really love Molly and her adventures.

    what happened to part 3? it's like an Alfred Hitchcock story - Audio says look for the next part, but it isn't there.....

    In the wild, when a wolf knows its time is over, when it knows it is of no more use to its pack, it may sometimes choose to slip away. Dying apart from its family, it stays proud and true to its nature. Humans aren’t so lucky. Luke Warren has spent his life researching wolves. He has written about them, studied their habits intensively, and even lived with them for extended periods of time.

    Elle in the Great NorthWest says: "Typical Jodi Picoult plot, chik lit but good"

    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Can't make a difference, all Jodi Picoult's books are thought provoking.


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

    Could have listened to this book in all one sitting, but unfortunately it was too long.

    In Fingerprints of God, award-winning journalist Barbara Bradley Hagerty delves into the discoveries science is making about how faith and spirituality affect us physically and emotionally as it attempts to understand whether the ineffable place beyond this world can be rationally - even scientifically - explained. Hagerty interviews some of the world's top scientists to describe what their groundbreaking research reveals about our human spiritual experience.

    Michael says: "Beautifully written"
    "Fingerprints"

    Barbara B. Hagerty points out how to see God's touch in all different situations. It's amazing how much this book opened my eyes, so to speak, to the presence of God in many aspects of my everyday life.

    Independant-spirited Constable Hamish Macbeth - Lochdubh's one-man police force - has his hands full after a glitzy TV company arrives in search of higher ratings. Ever since a British television crew began filming a mystery series nearby Castle Drim, Hamish has watched tension building. But trouble really escalates after one of the scriptwriters is found dead, and Hamish discovers a full cast of suspects lurking behind the scenes.

    glamazon says: "Too Chatty"
    "Death of a Scriptwriter"
    Overall

    This is the first book by M C Beaton that I've read. The characters come to life and have a life outside of the plot, which is very intriging.
