    Story

    A peaceful Minnesota town, where crime is something that just doesn’t happen, is about to face its worst nightmare. A young boy disappears. There are no witnesses, no clues — only a note, cleverly taunting, casually cruel. Has a cold-blooded kidnapper struck? Or is this the reawakening of a long-quiet serial killer?

    Would you try another book from Tami Hoag and/or Jennifer VanDyck?

    I used to enjoy Tami Hoag's mysteries but this one was awful. I will not use another credit on her.


    What could Tami Hoag have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Leave out the unneeded sexual scenes and stay with the storyline and finish the story.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It would be hard to narrate this story well but the reader made it even harder to bare.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Night Sins?

    All sex scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    Garbage.

    Two days ago, Gabriela's life was normal. Then, out of the blue, she gets word that her six-year-old daughter has been taken. She's given an ultimatum: Pay half a million dollars and find a mysterious document known as the "October List" within 30 hours, or she'll never see her child again. A mind-bending novel with twists and turns that unfold from its dramatic climax back to its surprising beginning, The October List is Jeffery Deaver at his masterful, inventive best.

    What disappointed you about The October List?

    I am a Deaver fan. I couldn't finish this book. Terrible is the best way to describe it.

    Music has set the tone for most of Zoe Baxter’s life. And it’s music that brings her back to love. When fertility issues lead to a divorce, Zoe throws herself into her career as a music therapist. As an unexpected friendship with a woman slowly blossoms into love, she makes plans for a new life, but to her shock and inevitable rage, some people - even those she loves and trusts most - don’t want that to happen.

    CDN says: "A Good Listen (except the music)"
    "Sing You Home"
    Overall

    Loved the book, hated the music. I fast forwarded through all the songs. Such a bad idea.

    When a wealthy man first meets his mail-order bride in 1907, he realizes this statuesque beauty is anything but a "simple missionary's daughter." But he doesn't know of her devious plan to leave Wisconsin as a rich widow. Nor does she know of the furious demons he longs to unleash during the lonely months of snowbound isolation.

    Richard says: "Intriguing story but only average writing"
    "Get on with it."
    Overall

    There was just enough story line between the endless lists and description of the tormented characters to allow me to finish this book.

    This extraordinary memoir from Jeannette Walls is a stirring and distinctive story that has won tremendous critical acclaim. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly applauds the author's "fantastic storytelling knack", saying, "Walls doesn't pull her punches...in this excellent, unusual book."

    Tracie says: "Stayed Awake Until 5 am to Finish!!!"
    "The Glass Castle"
    Overall

    I am writing this review to suggest another book that lovers of "The Glass Castle" will surely enjoy. "Sweeping Up Glass", by Carolyn Wall is a novel but reads like a memoir. Because I got it from the library I am unable to rate it but I give it a five as well.


    Back to the Glass Castle: I enjoyed it so much and was always amazed that this author survived with her determination to succeed and created this amazing memoir. The reader, such an important character in any audio book was excellent. I judge a good reader by how "unaware" I am of him or her, never distracting me from the story.

    I went on to read "Half Broke Horses." I didn't enjoy it as much as the previous book but found it so informative. We learn about her grandmother and can understand why her mother is as she is.
